FUNKY BLACK AND WHITE SERIES -
IMAGE # 1

Coots normally line up in an orderly fashion because they are normally a tightly knit group....They Queue up well, but for certain functions, like training, they move in the water often en masse, with feet and wings fluttering madly on the water and ALL IN UNISON....It is a real treat to watch these guys!do that massive movement

I have a video somewhere...will share it if I can ever find it....I am not Nearly as organized as the Coots

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
