What it's All About

Posted by

So, on Sunday night, I went down to my "old standby" photo shooting location to see what I could see....It was a bit late..getting dark,,,and I have been REALLY struggling (call it Fumbling) with my new Sony camera....but I absolutely love this camera....It's just that I do NOT learn quickly, and it takes me Forever to "get to know" a new camera!
But that's cool, I can deal with it....it just takes me a lot of time.]

So anyway, I got down to the lake on the first night of Daylight Savings time, and, as you can see, it was already getting dark....But I have been kind of in a "dark zone" lately anyway,,,Not "Mood-wise." Just image-wise.

But, man! The sky was outrageous and the Lake was sending off some awesome reflections! I felt like a kid with a new bicycle!!

I took about a million shots but this is one of my favs....Out of the 40- odd shots I grabbed, maybe 8 will be keepers....Sound Familiar?

I love you all - Thanks for your patience while I laid down my story about Sunday night, 10 March 2019... After all, this is what it's all about!! <3

- " 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
