The Basis of it All

I could be wrong about this, but I think just about every flower needs some kind of "support system." A base...It all starts there. The flower "gets the medal" but it would not exist were it not for the base.

So here we look at the base of a petunia. Perhaps not as pretty as the flower it supports, but essential to that flower's existence.....The Basis of it All.

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
