A New Month Begins - A New Day Begins

Posted by

This has ALMOST everything I like about Sunrise views: (1) A bare tree, through which we can see those (2) "Ribs in the sky" and the (3) pink and orange colors, along with a (4) sun pillar. The only "sunrise essential" that seems to be missing is a (5) foreground element....Oh Well... can't have everything, I guess :-) But ,as we begin a new month and a new day, maybe this will still be a good start. Happy February everyone!

- " 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"
