"Reconstruction Site" (Thanks to The Weakerthans)

Posted by

Here is a view that the local chamber's of commerce may be a bit unsure of....A view which encompasses the American Falls on the left, and the city of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, on the right. This was captured from a spot where some re-modeling and reconstruction is taking place. Through all this processing and chuckling, I began to think of the MAGNIFICENT Band from Winnipeg - The Weakerthans!.... Just a super, super group...give them a lesson if you please...The Title of this Image was equally inspired by the actual scene presented in this post, and the name of the band I mention above :-)

** 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
