"Pink Champagne Sparkle"

This scene reminded me of my old 1962 vintage Ludwig Drum kit.
The colour of the set was named by Ludwig "Champagne Sparkle," but many who owned that particular colour,including myself, simply referred to it as "Pink Champagne Sparkle," because the color had elements of pink that seemed to override the golden tone. So here we have "Pink Champagne Sparkle!"

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."

::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
