Mohawk Guy on the Niagara

Posted by

The Niagara Falls are located on the Niagara River which carries water from Lake Erie into Lake Ontario. In the stretch of the river past the falls and towards Lake ontario, there is an area of swirling rapids called "The Whirlpools." This fellow, with the "modern Mohawk, " appeared to have no clue about the potential danger of the whirlpools. One slip would create a major personal problem for him.

Barbara and I are headed to Cape Cod, Massachusetts today. We will return Monday. The trip is family-related. We will be visiting my sister and her family, as well as my older brother who has flown back to Cape Cod from California. I'll try to capture some shots that others might enjoy besides family shots ;-)

Until next week, all my best to all of you :-)

We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

::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"
