Well, confession here: I THINK it is Lord of the Rings that I am thinking of here. Quite honestly, I never read those stories, so i am not entirely certain.

Nevertheless, THIS was Very Definitely an amazing moment for me a few weeks ago.These clouds literally resembled a great castle - and the colors and textures in that sky were amazing. I was just glad that I was there to see this...It was pretty cool! Thanks for looking in.

- " 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
