"No Smoking" Revisited - ST

Posted by

Time for a chuckle here - This is a shot I captured many years ago in Seattle. This is my son, David laughing it up and saying "Dad, Look behind me and on the wall!"

The sign said "No Smoking" but the tourists were totally oblivious - puffing away - Or maybe it was that they DID see it but didn't give a damn!
Either way, David and I had a pretty good laugh over it.....I hope you do, too! :-)

PS - David and I are BIG fans of the Houston Astros Baseball team (Long Story) - that's an Astros shirt and hat he is wearing

- " 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
