Enjoying Grass at the long Branch

Posted by

"The Long Branch Saloon" used to be a household name in America back in the 50's and 60's and even into the 70's. The old radio program "Gunsmoke" became a television program and, between the two, it lasted for decades.

Now the term "grass" can mean many things..as does the term "Long Branch." We only have our imagination to tell us which to enjoy and which to ignore.

This image was captured on the grounds of the Gifford Pinchot Mansion ("Grey Towers") in Milford, Pennsylvania. More about that in the next exciting episode.

- " 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
