School Days - Apple Days

My favorite time of the year is beginning! Apples are almost ready for harvest, school is back in session, the kids are loading on the buses, and everyone in AM3 who lives in the Northern Hemisphere, is waitiing to see what the autumn will be like, while our beloved friends in the Southern Hemisphere are "done" with winter and looking forward to spring and summer ;-)

I photographed this little guy plucking an apple (grasp and twist) from a Vermont Orchard where our daughter Amy (a schoolteacher), was leadiing a group of students, giving them a lesson about apples. By the way, that's just part of a leaf in the top of the apple ;-)
Whatever season you are awaiting, I hope it brings you happiness.

- " 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
