American Falls at Niagara

Posted by

This past weekend, I visited Niagara Falls,Ontario Canada and American Falls at Niagara Falls, New York. Barbara had visited there once before, but I have never been there, and, for me, it was truly one of the most exciting and fun weekends I have ever had. This is a shot of American Falls, captured from the Canadian side of the Niagara River. During our visit there, we did all the fun tourist-type things but when taking shots of both sets of falls (American and Niagara) I tried my very best to include some angle or object or perspective that might make these heavily photographed landmarks interesting to view once more. Please let me know what you think as I post these. What a wonderful time we had. :-)

- " 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
