Autumn Sunday on the Lake

Posted by

A happy couple float out for a swim, on Lake Sammamish (suh-mamm-ish) in the Redmond-Bellevue area east of Seattle. Just minutes from the giant company, Microsoft, this wonderful lake includes some huge houses, but also several wonderful (and large) parks for all to enjoy along the shores. This is a view from the Western shore looking at the eastern shore.

** 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
