** 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

Great capture of the family. The contrasting colors really make this composition "pop!"

@Steven: HI Steven - yes I was really taken by the color of the scene - this was taken around 7:00 pm a few weeks ago. I was aided by the fact that there were lots of trees around and the whole scene reminded me of the swimming-pool-in-the-gym scene from "It's a Wonderful Life. I am giving away my age. Thx Steven - Denny
