"Variation on a Theme" II - Late Autumn

Posted by

This image, like the previous one, is an older picture...but the subjects are similar: Leaf, Colors and Branches.... I initially titled this "Dagger to The Heart" because of the short twig stepping through the leaf.....but Autumn is for beauty, not pain, so I dropped the dagger.

Thank you for your comments and interest....I hope you like this one ;-)

- " 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
