Prior to January of this year (when I was employed), there was this park on a hillside and it was very near my work location.
Many mornings I would try to get there a little bit early so I could view the sunrise. This was one of them. I love this one a lot...I hope you like it.

Note from Denny:
Soon, we will be headed for Seattle where we intend to live out our "Brass Years" - we're not rich enough for Gold! But I will be trying desperately to do crazy amounts of photography :-)

NIKON D800 1/30 second F/3.5 ISO 640 28 mm (35mm equiv.)

** 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
