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.

Rochester’s Abandoned Subway 2 [Orange You Glad It's Friday]

Continuing our approach to the abandoned subway tunnel, there was an abundance of graffiti to enjoy. These two youngsters below came ‘flying’ by as if being chased.

Or had they been startled by this section of the wall below?

Once inside the tunnel, it was surprising to see how large a space it opened into. Fortunately, the event organizers had lighting set up in most areas where no sunlight entered the interior, but one still had to exercise caution due to poor footing. Eventually, we arrived at a section where there must have been a split in traffic.

Soon after, we passed an area, accessible only by ladder, in which water covered the entire floor [image below]. This was shot through a chain link fence next to the ladder. I don’t know for what purpose this room served.

Next week I will conclude our tour.
