One Last Look

With kudos to Tom Waits for the above title that I have borrowed for this image, I present to you "One Last Look" at this season's Christmas ornaments.... In truth, they are already carefully wrapped and placed back into their box ;-)

So we have "One Last Look" at the fun, colorful decorations that did the best they could to raise spirits this recent Christmas.

Moving along.......;-) I wish you all a healthy and happy New Year 2019!

- " 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
