"Hurry Up Herry" - The Blue Heron of Bushkiill

Meet "Hurry up Herry" (intentionally misspelled). He has eluded myself and my friend, neighbor, and fellow AM3 blogger, Julie of Easton, forever, it seems! Julie finally got some great shots and posted them a few months ago...I had been totally unsuccessful until this one, here,when he came swooping in over me...he didn't even notice me...Surprise, Herry, I GOTCHA!! When he finally realized that I was hiding in the snow behind the bridge wall, he took off like a bolt of lightning. I still have not gotten a "face" shot, but this is close. One must be patient with this bird. He has a 6th sense!!

** 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"
