Riding towards the mist

This image always made me think of that old story "Into the valley of death rode the brave 600!" Of course, THIS actual ride is not nearly as dangerous or threatening, but the Falls are definitely nothing to play with. This is the American "Maid of the Mist" boat headed towards Horseshoe Falls, one of the three main falls that make up the greater "Niagara Falls."

- " 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
