Hi Everyone - Thank you for bearing with me and being so kind even though I have not responded...as you may know, we have been traveling and are now visiting our son and daughter-in-law and beautiful grand daughters in Northern California....Hopefully I can have some photos soon for you to see...Until then - Thanks Again

...A sunrise in Pennsylvania...I shot this way back in July, 2011....but it still sings a song:

"Get Up, Stand Up..
Stand Up for Your Rights...
Get Up, Stand Up...
Don't give Up the Fight!"

Bob Marley

- " 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
