Hi Everyone - Please allow me to Thank you all for your wonderful comments on my previous 2 or 3 posts - I am sorry that I was not abe to respond to you but I certainly appreciate your kind remarks I should be back in better touch this week. :-) Thanks Again.

Now for today - There was a rock band named King Crimson...I just learned they hung around a lot longer than I had remembered - until the last year or so....at any rate, for some reason, this image reminds me of their name.
I will tell you more about New Jersey / Pennsylvania sunrises on Wednesday....but for now, I offer this "eye opener" for all the returning workers on their way back to work for "the man", "corporate America," "the salt mines"...wherever you are and whatever you want to call it...For all the folks out there like me who love photography but gotta pay the bills, so we go to work - this Sunrise is for 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
