"That's a Cold Shot, Baby"

With all due credit and praise to the great Stevie Ray Vaughan - his Blues song entitled "Cold Shot" was about lost love.
This is about just plain cold...but I still cannot help but think of Stevie's song here...Shooting down from above, the cold water meets with cold ice to make more ice and more cold water...a cold cycle...a Cold Shot!
Too cold, baby, too cold!

Here is the last verse from Stevie Ray's song:

"I really meant I was sorry
For ever causing you pain
You showed your appreciation
By walking out anyway

And that's a cold shot, baby
Yeah that's a drag
That's a cold shot, babe
We've let our love go bad"

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."

::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"
