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.

Fall Colors [Orange You Glad It’s Friday] & [Sky Watch Friday]

Upstate NY abounds with trees whose leaves color beautifully with the onset of Autumn. I have posted images of Fall colors in the past and did not think I would be inclined to continue. However, through pure happenstance, I have encountered some unusual opportunities and, voila, there are new photos to post. The first three are trees that had been pruned radically to make space for power lines to pass through their branches. The topmost image was shot through the car window with my LG G4 cell phone. The next two were shot last Fall using my ‘big boy’ Canon 60D.




Below are two images taken in Clifton Springs, NY [ca. 30 miles east of Rochester]. The first was shot in a park along Main Street, and the second was inside the Main Street Arts Gallery. We had driven there to see a photo exhibition by a group photographer friends. The window reflected in the glass was irresistible, and I just had to shoot it [along with my own reflection].



The next image is along the Erie Canal in the town of Pittsford, NY [6 miles east of Rochester]. It was taken in early Fall and the colors had not yet fully developed, but, I liked the reflection in the water.

This last image was taken at the Ventosa Winery located on the northeastern shore of Seneca Lake [ca. 45 miles southeast of Rochester]. My wife and I enjoyed a leisurely lunch seated on an outdoor balcony, basking in the mild temperatures of an ‘Indian summer’ day.
