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 3 [Orange You Glad It's Friday]

Our tour of Rochester’s Abandoned Subway continues from last week. A short distance further into the tunnel, we came across a brass quintet [comprised of students from the world famous Eastman School of Music of the University of Rochester]. Evidently, the tour organizers had employed them to entertain passersby...very classy, indeed. We tarried awhile to enjoy the concertizing, but continued on as soon as the crowd had swelled. 


Some of the tunnel sections saw the light of day through the open arches, as seen below. If you scroll back to the first of the three series’ postings, you can see this section of the tunnel from the outside.






Now that I’ve been inside, I look forward to the next opportunity to return.
