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 9: Rabat (Museum of Modern Art)

Arriving in Rabat concluded the pre-trip extension and the start of the main trip. Rabat is the capital of Morocco and, as you might expect, there are many interesting sites to visit. Having some free time on that first day, we walked to the King Mohammed VI Museum of Modern Art [located about 15-20 min. from our hotel]. As we turned the corner towards the main entrance, this huge sculpture greeted us.


The architecture of building itself was quite modern, while at the same time reflecting the rich traditional heritage of Morocco.

We saw a wide collection of sculpture and paintings by Moroccan artists. Below is a group of my favorites.
