"You're Going the Wrong Way!!!" - (Late ST)

With a famous line from "Planes, Trains and Automobiles," (one of my favorite movies of all time)...I caught these characters one morning on my way to work when Barbara and I still lived in Eastern Pennsylvania....

Often times, I would take this back country route to the office and I was never dissatisfied...Always beautiful and relaxing...When I came up over a hill and down the other side to see these Turkeys, for some reason the first thing that came to my mind was the thought of John Candy and Steve Martin riding along the wrong side of the road in that famous and hilarious movie.

It seems like Turkeys are often the perfect characters for anything funny....We also have lots of Turkeys in our US Government these days... but that's another subject....sort of.... Just saying....

- " 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
