Seattle - Pike Place Market - August 28, 2013:
(Please observe the Neon Signs before continuing with this text):

Fun with partially-obstructed signage:

Is it really a "Rot Grocer" that exists downstairs?!?
LOOK at the the faces on these people!!...They look as though they are waiting to undergo a tooth extraction ...or, are they just "crabby" from being in a fish market all day?

Pike Market is a MUCH happier place than these faces convey ...Happy Silly Tuesday!

- " 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
