At Cape Cod, the affects of the rapidly changing weather are easily seen in the trees - especially the pines. This old pine is twisted like a corkscrew, yet stands almost 80 feet high. The clouds are dynamic...changing direction and shape often Together, the clouds and trees make a treat for the eye and a joy for the photographer. This composition was chosen to show the two elements. When processing, thanks to the framing I chose, I was reminded of some of Ansel Adams tree photos. It occurred to me that a Black and White processing might look nice. I hope you like this :-)
** 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
