Here in Washington State, most folks are used to seeing scenes like this....a monolithic concrete and stone structure bordered by (or surrounded by) one of nature's charms, such as a bush or plants or majestic trees.
And so, scenes like this, become somewhat commonplace.
I rather enjoy scenes like this....they fortify and defend the principle of coexistence...
And Coexistence is something we need more of....at least in my opinion!!

- " 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
