HI ALL - I GOT HOME SAFELY LAST NIGHT (SUNDAY) ABOUT 8:00 PM...THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR WONDERFUL COMMENTS WHILE I WAS GONE....I LOADED THIS IMAGE LAST WEEK BECAUSE I KNEW THAT AFTER TWO 6-1/2 HOUR DRIVES (ONE GOING UP AND ONE COMING BACK) IN LESS THAN THREE DAYS, I WOULD BE TOO "WIPED OUT" TO THINK ABOUT POSTING ON SUNDAY NIGHT. I BAGGED ABOUT 400 SHOTS OF LITTLE LEAGUE AND "BABE RUTH LEAGUE BASEBALL GAMES IN VERMONT SO GUESS WHAT, YOU WILL GET TO SEE A FEW THEM ;-) BUT I PROMISE JUST A FEW..I WILL EXPLAIN MORE IN A FEW DAYS WHEN I POST THEM.

The stamen on this Day Lilly was just covered in pollen waiting for a bee to come along and have a snort. I was lucky to catch this while the peta;s were still wet. No saturation here, this is the true to life close up color.

** 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"
; Earth Wind and Fire
