Hello and welcome. Hope you enjoy the images I have posted. Please do not reproduce them without my permission. Most are available as note/greeting cards or as prints/enlargements. Thank you for visiting my site and your comments.
Many have asked about the Header image above, which I named 'Eerie Genny'. It was originally shot with film [taken on the shore of the Genesee River near the Univ. of Rochester]. During the darkroom development, I flashed a light above the tray. The process, known as 'solarization', produces eerie, ghostlike effects; some have mistaken this image as an infra-red photo. Some 35+ years later, I scanned and digitized the print, and did a little modern day editing, and, voila.

Circles 2 [Orange You Glad It’s Friday]

The image below was a closeup shot of a portion of the lights that my neighbor had hung on his fir tree for the Christmas holidays. It was my intention to defocus and distort the appearance of the lights [virtually point light sources]; ie. In the process of defocussing, they appeared to increase in size.

Moving from a group of circles to one large one....this lifebuoy ring was on board a boat that took us on a fjord cruise from Killary Harbor, Ireland.

While not quite a circle, this elliptically shaped mirror was a good candidate for OYGIF.

Circles 1 [Orange You Glad It’s Friday]

I think most photographers respond to distinctive shapes and patterns that repeat themselves. Out on a shooting assignment, I suddenly began noticing the appeal of circular shapes. I’ve accumulated a small collection of images and will use them to start a new mini-series, Circles.

Sunset at Webster Park Beach [Orange You Glad It’s Friday] & [Sky Watch Friday]

  I guess it’s time to get back home and showcase some of the local beauty. Rochester, NY is upstate several miles south of one of the five Great Lakes, Lake Ontario. It is also north[west] of the so-called Finger Lakes, of which there are 11. The shots below were taken at sunset up at Webster Park Beach on Lake Ontario. I have posted previously other sunset images from this location. I don’t think further commentary is needed here...
