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.

Memorial Art Gallery [Sky Watch Friday]

Rochester has a variety of outstanding museums that attract visitors from all over the world. These include the Eastman International Museum of Photography, the Strong Museum of Toys, the Susan B. Anthony House, and the Memorial Art Gallery. It was to the latter that we paid a visit this afternoon, specifically to see the newly opened Max Escher exhibit. The exhibit was fabulous [open until the end of January], and I would recommend it highly. Since photography was not permitted, I cannot show you examples of his unique and brilliant works. However, there were photo-ops outside the museum, including the buildings, as well as the extraordinary sculpture garden containing stone and metal figures.




Today we hit a record high temperature in Rochester, so it was fun to wander around the garden; here are some sample images of these unusual and humorous figures.
