Old Faithful as seen from the "non-crowd" side.

I caught this last year on the walk around geyser basin. On the far ridge, to the right - you can see where the fires hit several years ago - that was just one of the many locations.

Incidentally - based on a few requests, please stay tuned for a few more images of BODIE State Historic Park (California) which I will post on July 9 and 10 - Doing this for those of you who told me that they were intersted in Bodie. Thanks to all for your patience and comments.

- " 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
