sillhouettes - II - Lamp on Right

HI EVERYONE, I JUST WANTED TO THANK ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR VERY KIND COMMENTS OVER THE WEEKEND, EVEN THOUGH MY PRESENCE IS often "SCARCE" ;-) I REALLY DO APPRECIATE YOUR KINDNESS!

I call this, (oddly enough) "Lamp on Right." These sillhouette images were all captured last Saturday evening within 5 minutes of our condo. I posted this particular image because it seems to nicely show the transition that was going on at the time from the yellow gold on the horizon, to the blue higher in the sky - I was loving that ;-) This location is part of a golf course, that also has some open, unused area where one can enjoy views without diturbing the golfers. So I availed myself of the opportunity.

- " 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
