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.

Cleveland Skies 3 [Sky Watch Friday]

One of the main reasons for our visit to Cleveland was to see the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Designed by renown architect, I. M. Pei, the museum is situated along the shore of Lake Erie. It is easily accessible by auto, RTA train or RTA bus. We preferred the latter method because we gained a better view of the museum and lake [although we had to walk a bit further from the bus stop]; in addition, we also had a good view of the train station [image below].  Just a few more words about using the RTA: you cannot pay fares in cash. However, at every RTA station there is an automat [that also accepts credit cards]. And, if you are a senior, I recommend purchasing the all day card option for $2.75 [I think it was option R6]. You can use it repeatedly on all RTA transportation until 3 A.M. the following day.


Just a few hundred meters from the station is the museum itself. I will let the shots below speak for themselves. One really has to walk around the whole complex to appreciate its full impact. From one  vantage point, the museum reminded one of the Louvre in Paris.
