"There are Some Strangers Amongst Us"

The clouds float overhead causing the sun to shine brightly there, but here, the sun shines in more of a sporadic or a dappled manner. It sends it's light rays through the bodies of the "stranger weeds," reminding me of that scene in the movie "Raiders of The Lost Ark" when the Ark of the Covennant sends the lightning bolts streaking through the soldier's bodies.

More "strangers" appear in these fields each year, as they are rotated between wheat, corn, soy, or combination thereof. This is all nothing more than variety - which I love.

- " 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
