It's early Autumn and the apples in Vermont are ready. I took these shots (today and the following 3 or 4) a few years ago. This is our daughter Amy, teaching her students all about apples. She actually took some rather involved training from the owners of the apple orchard in order to teach this subject. There's a great deal about apples that I never knew, that's for sure! Amy is pretty much of an expert now. The students, of course, were all ears...and eyes....and tastebuds.... Observe how intently they are focusing...this was serious business to them. And, I have to say, Amy really has a way with kids...they love her.
** 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
