** 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

Awesome composition! A 3-D affect! Love the texture of the tree and water together!

@Wild Mustang Photography: Hi Pam - thank you very much - yes the trunk and bark were awesome and I thought, "gee" why not add this to the light coming off the water? Thanks very much for your comment :-), Denny

Great colors and textures you've captured in this composition along with a lot of depth. The light off the water adds a nice contrasting effect.

@Steven: Hi Steven - sorry to be so slow in responding - I have been housepainting forever it seems. Yes walked down to the creek and crossed the little bridge that it has and I just glanced over to the right and there was this scene slapping me in the face - I had to get it. Thank you sir. AS you know I am a BIG fan of your images you do a really great job Steven.
