“Cookout” on the Moon - October 2015

Posted by

One of my favorite images is this one here...I shot this in Pennsylvania in early October, 2015 at the waxing Hunter's Moon....It appeared as though the Moon Men were having a Barbecue Cookout and the smoke was rising to space...Of course, the "smoke" was actually just a cloud that appeared visually above the moon, but it was still fun to pretend. I do that a lot! It keeps me young in spirit ;-)

(PS -The "cracks" you may see are reflections of the sunlight that was Just Perfectly "Hitting" some of the crater edges on the moon as I made this image)

- " 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
