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.

Image City Gallery Assignments [April 2017]

   For this month’s assignment, we were to take photographs that we specifically wanted to use for B&W images. The images below were originally shot with my LG4 cell phone. In both cases, for months on end, I had been thinking about shooting these. The assignment provided the motivation to finally get to it. For comparison, I include the original color image along with the edited B&W image.
  The rack of medicine balls is located in the Midtown Athletic Club where I regularly work out, swim [the outdoor pool opened April 1], or play tennis.



This last image is a building not far from where I live. It has been a ugly eyesore for several years, and I don’t understand why/how it has escaped the attention of any neighborhood group. be that as it may, it provided a good photo-op.
