The Edge of Sunrise

Posted by

Don Smith's book "On the Edge" has been so helpful to me and as I looked at this particular stage in the Saturday morning sunrise, I thought about some of the "learning points" in his book which are supported by totally relevant photographic illustrations, making the entire learning process so much easier for me.

Here, we have what I like to call "The Edge of Sunrise" where night meets day, first light touches ground and water and, as a result, begins an ever-changing and unique process of events never again to be seen.

** 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
