Frozen in Time

Posted by

I went for a walk during my lunch hour on Friday - I had my camera and backpack. I walked into a wooded area that had a pond I like to visit. I suspected that, with the recent temperatures being below freezing, this pond would be frozen or in the process thereof. Well, it was! I was particularly attracted by these trees and their reflection on the ice. Later as I was editing the image, somehow, the timeless feeling prompted me to revert to B&W. I am not usually prone to reverting natural things to B&W, but it seemed right here. Let me know what you think. Have a great weekend everyone! PS - I hope to have some more building shots soon :-)

- " 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
