I Love "Crop" Shots!

Agriculture is a large part of civilization. When I pass by or through a field of crops, I am always drawn uncontrollably to the plants, the colors, their uniformity and their differences. This field of Sorghum has been attracting me for quite awhile. The light this early morning seemed to strike the changing colors beautifully. I was late getting to work because of this scene :-) Am I concerned about that?....Hell No!

** 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
