Dolores Park San Francisco

This was taken during Christmastime 2009 in San Francisco. The day was a bit murky and non-descript so I slapped the shot into sepia mode just for the heck of it. Dolores Park contains Mission Dolores which was one of the original California Missions. Despite the appearance in the scene, the mood of the three amigos plus one (unseen) was a good one.

- " 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
