Under the Capital Dome

It is impossible to resist the temptation to look up and admire the inside of the capital dome, once one is inside this huge marble building. There is something very special about the state capitals in this country....Hopefully their solid construction will far out last the idiocy and insanity of our political situation these days...

NIKON D800 1/30 second F/2.8 ISO 1100 31 mm (35mm equiv.)

- " 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
