Knockin' on Heaven's Door"

The title of this post is the song written by Bob Dylan way back in 1973 and was part of the soundtrack for the movie "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid." The song immediately came into my mind when I stepped outside Sunday late afternoon....The winter sun was just beginning to go down and the clouds were pink from the glow.

I Have been fumbling around with a new camera that I just got: A Sony DSC RX10M4 (also known as DSC RX10IV). This camera is awesome!! It better be because I sold all my old gear to get enough money to purchase this camera ;-) But my early statement is that the new Sony is Well worth it for an old 71 year old guy with a body riddled with arthritis and tired of lugging around heavy gear....

Cheers and Happy New Year all!!

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."

::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"
