I dedicate this image to the memory of Preston "Pip" Powell, my friend who passed away in August....
The Staples Singers are singing for you, Pip!

I will be traveling to Vermont tomorrow, Thursday. I will return around Wednesday of next week. I will try to post a few shots but, just in case, I have pre-loaded a few images over these next few days...I will probably not be able to respond to anyone but I want you to know that I sincerely appreciate your comments and will catch up with everyone on my return next week...Until then Love and peace to all of you !

** 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
