One of the Pacific Northwest's predominant trees is the Douglas Fir. They are all around the area where I now iive. They really are quite beautiful, large, and stately. This was shot on a day when the sky was doing some really phenomenal stuff. The sky color was deep, deep blue, like cobalt...the clouds were amazingly shaped, and the cirrus level had some other beautifully-shapped clouds as you may be able to see here. I was relaxing in the back yard and looking straight towards the sky (as I VERY often do)....this scene just struck me. All I had was my iPhone, but I am usually not afraid of using it....after all, you know the old saying: "The Best Camera is the one you have with you!" Later, I decided to have a bit more fun by processing this in MacPhun's "TonalityPro>" I hope you like it ;-)
** 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
