Slowly Leaving

Autumn continues to gracefully exit this year - thank goodness The colors are so beautiful and their tonal warmth is inspiring. There was nothing much about this scene other than the sheer, simple beauty of it as I passed by. The waning light bouncing off the leaves at the top of the tree while the pink dusk approached down on the horizon......I love Autumn!

- " 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
