"Take One Last Look"

Upon making this image months ago, the song by Tom Waits - "Take One Last Look" - came to mind....
Wait's lyrics and Artistry have always truly been an inspiration to me...

"Take One Last Look”
by Tom Waits
(partial excerpt):

[Chorus]
And take one last look
At the place that you are leaving
Take one last look
Oh, take one last look
At the place that you are leaving
Take one last look

** 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
