Here is an image I made about three years ago in New Jersey. Autumn in the east is always beautiful.
PS - we are traveling - I apologize for leaving the previous image up for so long ;-)

** 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:

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

I like the 'circular' effect this carries . . a lovely living intensity.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thank you very much, Ronnie! The reflection, in the water, of the bent branches made an almost perfect circle....As I came upon this scene, I just about fainted ;-) Thank you so much

I love this. The colours, the reflections, the bent trees which interrupt the straight lines. Wonderful.

@beach: Thank you very much, sir! I almost stumbled into this grove of trees...did not even notice the water and curved branches...and reflection....until I was almost in the water ;-) It blew my mind ;-)
