Cherry Trees and Jefferson Memorial

I forgot to mention on my post of Friday, this series was taken in Washington DC during the Cherry Blossom Festival of 2008. Here we see the Jefferson Memorial through the trees. Just behind me where I was standing to take this shot (not visible) are the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial and the soon-to-be-completed Memorial for Dr Martin Luther King, a long overdue tribute in my opinion!

- " 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
