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.

Erie Canal Bridge [Sky watch Friday]


Rochester is fortunate to have many bodies of water in and around it. These include the Finger Lakes, the Genesee River, [Great ]Lake Ontario, Niagara Falls, Irondequoit Bay, and the Erie Canal. They make for numerous sports/recreational activities, as well as photographic opportunities. I have posted a number of images for SWF with the Genesee River [aka the Genny] -- in fact, my blog site header was shot on its shoreline. Today’s image was shot during a walk along the Erie Canal in Pittsford, NY. It was another one of those occasions where I had to resort to using my cell phone to capture what I thought was an irresistible view.

Oh nice shot! I love bridges, would love to see some of the covered bridges but there aren't any around here! My Dad used to build bridges in his day.
Thanks for the comments on my blog. I used a bit of a higher ISO and braced myself taking them! I think I used some flash, can't really remember that! Sadly part of the Antiques barn burned down this past weekend. One of the adjacent barns with hay inside caught fire and was completely gutted. The firemen did a great job containing it to mostly that one barn and the three buildings that house the Antiques suffered minimal damage. Its an awesome place to go on a rainy day! I would hate to see it gone.

What a great angle on this bridge with the maze of bridge supports. The reflections on the water and on the underside of the bridge are fabulous.

Bises,
