I have been terribly "sidetracked" with all sorts of personal/medical/work issues, lately. So,I have been pouring through some of my images. I saw a short series of shots that I took last year about this time, while Barbara and I were on our walk . It really was an amazing sky that night - almost unbelievable, really - but I swear, this is what it was like, plus some shadow sliding and contrast work inputs process ...that's about it.
** 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
