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 5 [Orange You Glad It’s Friday]

 Sometimes circles or circle-like shapes appear in unexpected places or objects. Today’s images fall into that category. The baseball caps below were shot at Rochester's Public Market. The orange color jumps right out at you, but the circles are a bit more subtle.


                  While there is only a hint of orange in the wood, the circles are fairly prominent.


The image below was shot with my cell phone in the de Cordova Museum Sculpture Garden in Lincoln, MA. Shown here is only a portion of the unusual structure, entitled Lincoln, which must be about 100 feet in length. It is set up on a hillside, and kids love to crawl/walk in and out the openings. Here you can see a small child in the background, which helps give scale to the sculpture.


The next image was shot in a laundromat. I couldn't believe my good fortune when I looked through the window and saw the line of machines.

The final image was from a public men's room some place in London. The only fully circular objects are the three buttons on the wall to flush the toilets, which are roughly elliptical.
