This image was captured at a lovely Nature Preserve named Merrill Creek Reservoir in nearby Warren County, NJ. My friend and fellow Aminus3 Phtotgrapher, Julie Finley of Easton, PA introduced me to this preserve. Incidentally, If you are not familiar with Julie's work I would urge you to take a look. She has some really phenomenal images in her blog located at http://juliefinley.aminus3.com/

** 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
