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.

Downtown Rochester [Sky Watch Friday]

On Saturday Oct. 1, around the globe, thousands of photographers were out shooting in their hometowns/cities as part of Scott Kelby’s 2016 Worldwide Photowalk. I was one of several dozen participants in Rochester, NY. As luck would have it, the weather was not cooperative; viz. we had a bright gray sky [followed by rain just as the walk concluded]. Still, I managed to obtain a number of satisfactory images, shown below. Since I have posted many of shots taken downtown, I will try to avoid redundancy.




After the walk was over, a group of us gathered for lunch in the Genesee Brew Pub. Service was slow, but the sandwiches were great. While waiting, I got off my best shot through the rain-drenched window. I converted this to B&W in Lightroom.
