Convict Lake Scene 5 October 2006

Here we are, once again, in the Aspen grove at the west end of the lake where the creek flows into the lake. Supposedly, this is the area where the gun battle took place. Seems strange that a fierce and violent battle could occur in such a peaceful place. But I guess that was the way of the old American West! I hope you are enjoying these scenes. I still have a few more to show you :-)

- " 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
