America's Oldest Brewery

Posted by

Yuengling Brewery, located in Pottsville, PA, e about 1 hour west of Easton, PA is America's oldest Brewery. Not old, perhaps by European standards, but it takes the prize here in the states. I took my son , son-in-law, and grandsons to this brewery for a tour of history as well as beer making. A few images will follow this one in a short series. I felt that this image would be a good start.

- " 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
