Ascension

Like a Hollywood Spotlight shining it's beam upward, an Ice Pillar shoots toward the heavens at sunrise.

Note from Denny: My sincere and humble thanks go out to everyone who has been so kind in commenting and hanging in there with me while my record of response and visits to your site has been deplorable. I truly apologize, but also I think you so very much. I am hoping to climb out of this exile as soon as I can. Peace, Love, and THANKS to all of you. :-) <3

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
