End of Summer

Hi everyone -
First off - I present this image to ensure you that I have NOT gone over to the dark side with my "Contemplation" series...I have about 3 more images that will be presented in that series...and Very soon I think everyone will see "where I am going" with the seres entitled "Contemplation" ....Thanks for playing along with me. I am serious about that series but I don't like to be glum ALL the time :-)

In the meantime, here we have a goodbye, of sorts, to Summer. In the Atlantic States, the unofficial end of summer is Labor Day weekend (which is this coming weekend). Conversely, in some parts of the U.S., summer is nowhere NEAR being over with. But seeing as I LOVE September, October, and November, I am more than ready to move on.

- " 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
