Backside of Summer

Posted by

Thursday morning. I arrived at work. I parked. Got out of my car. Crossed the wet grass....looked down and saw a few leaves that were lying in the grass with fresh rain drops on them! All I had was my iPhone, but I shot this anyway.Did some processing on Snapseed on my phone and NIK here at home and voila! The backside of a leaf is amazing - and the backside of summer is obviously upon us, here in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

- " 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
