I WILL BE GONE UNTIL AFTER LABOR DAY BUT I WILL BE VIEWING YOUR IMAGES AND READING ALL COMMENTS MADE ON MY IMAGES, SO I THANK YOU IN ADVANCE AND WISH YOU A GREAT COUPLE OF WEEKS - I SHOULD RETURN AROUND SEPTEMBER 6 OR 7.t is indeed that time of year. Most of the corn is already harvested but much is still coming in. This Sumac blossom seems to be guarding all before him

- " 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
