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.

Morocco Odyssey 5: Chefchaouen (iii)

 I continue our visit in Chefchaouen, which was one of our favorite places in Morocco. I should note that most tours, including that of OAT, do not include it in their regular tour packages. However, it was part of a pre-trip extension; despite the additional cost, we were glad that we signed up for it.
 Today’s images will include more ‘life forms’ than in the previous postings; and I start off by showing who the ’we’ is that I keep referring to.


This elderly gent is wearing a jellaba, a hooded smock worn by many Moroccan men. We saw it throughout Morocco, but it seemed more prevalent in the northern part of the country.


The two men on the bench [in the main town square] were musicians entertaining passersby for tips. 


Here are several additional images from the town square area. I am not sure about the nature of the trees; but, I suspect they might be old olive trees.





Finally, a word about pets. Animals are not regarded as clean and are not generally permitted inside houses. Cats, on the other hand, enjoy a better status, maybe because they root out rodents. While I am not in to photographing animals, these two shots demanded to be taken.
