When I traveled to the San Francisco area to join up with Barbara and enjoy our granddaughters and family, the rain decided to join us on 5 of the 8 days that I was there. Nothing really bothered us but it certainly was wet. Nevertheless, there were no complaints from any of us because, as Californians, we knew that the rain was sorely needed and the accompanying mountain snows were especially welcomed.
This is the newly-constructed east "leg" of the San Francisco Bay Bridge that connects Oakland with Treasure Island and on to San Francisco. The "old bridge" can be seen on the far left.Not much left of it except what you see. Lots of spray here, making for a misty ride.
** 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
