"Goosed"

We have Canada Geese that live here all year 'round ...Many more of them come in with the Snow geese as well in the winter. This makes for a massive, raucous assemblage when they visit the dormant farm fields.
Not 2 miles from our house, I found a giant flock of Snow geese (and some Canada Geese as well) in a local corn field. The beautiful Snow Goose is my personal favorite, but they are all amazing to watch. I will have more to show you. This is one of my early favorites. Let me know what you think :-)

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " 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
