"Have no Fear, Earthlings, We Come in Peace!"

I captured this on an incredibly hot and humid morning, I looked out the back sliding glass door and saw these three, almost identical clouds, traveling-in from the east. The light was casting on them in such a way that their own shadows were cast upward to the additional layer of high clouds that lay above them. It took me a while to figure all of this out. The sight was really quite amazing with the variety and combination of clouds, mist and sunlight. To me, the three clouds looked like spacecraft approaching the earth. the entire scene was quite fascinating and had my mind going. I hope you enjoy it too :-)

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
