HI EVERYONE -I HAVE A COUPLE OF ANNOUNCEMENTS:

FIRST, I WANT TO APOLOGIZE AND LET YOU KNOW THAT I AM ALMOST OUT OF MY "ORANGE" PERIOD! AS A CONSEQUENCE, I WILL SOON POST SOME IMAGES THAT ACTUALLY HAVE COLOURS OTHER THAN ORANGE :-).

MORE IMPORTANTLY, I ALSO WANTED TO LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT OUR DAUGHTER (AMY) AND SON (DAVID), ALONG WITH THEIR SPOUSES AND KIDS WILL ALL BE VISITING US FOR THE THANKSGIVING HOLIDAYS OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS! OUR ENTIRE FAMILY WILL BE TOGETHER IN OUR CONDO: 6 ADULTS, 4 KIDS, 2 DOGS AND 1 CAT! WE ARE AS EXCITED AS WE CAN BE! I MAY PREEMPT AN IMAGE OR TWO IN ORDER TO THROW IN SOME GOOD OLD FASHIONED FAMILY "BRAG" SHOTS, INSTEAD...:-)

FINALLY, AS A RESULT OF THIS UPCOMING "FAMILY AFFAIR" (CREDITS TO SLY STONE) I PROBABLY WILL NOT BE AS ACTIVE ON THE COMMENTS AND RESPONSES, BUT I WILL DEFINITELY BE HERE, AND I WILL ALWAYS BE LOOKING AT YOUR IMAGES, SO KEEP THEM COMING :-).

MY LOVE TO YOU ALL AND HAVE A GREAT FEW WEEKS!...DENNY

- " 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"
