Welcome/Willkommen!

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.

Signs/Walls 2 [Orange You Glad It's Friday]

Today we finish the mini-series, signs/walls. The comical looking character below is actually the logo for Turkcell, the Turkish telecommunications company. The sign was suspended by wires across a street in Istanbul, and I was determined to bring back a record of it.

 
This storefront in Galway, Ireland, below speaks for itself. It was a OYGIF photo-op that stopped me in my tracks as we ambled down a side street.

Of course, pubs and tobacco shops abound in Ireland; and we might have stopped in for a pint at this locale.

 Back home in Rochester, NY, this is the side wall of an automotive parts store.   


While the temperatures in Rochester recently reached the 60s in mid-December, the lower left hand corner of the photo below is a chilling reminder of what awaits us.  The attire of the couple in the show window is certainly inconsistent with the prevailing season.  I tend to doubt that it was meant to cheer up passersby. If I were to give this a title, it would be Reality Check.
