Good to the Last Drop

Like a smooth, strong, flavourful cup of coffee, these poplar leaves hang on until the last moment, changing colours, acquiring spots, getting torn, showing streaks and marks. But the plants and trees in autumn, pass through a tour de force of beauty, strength, and fervor.. they display their courage and colour to the last moment - the last second - the last drop.
I love you, autumn!!

- " 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
