"From a Whisper to a Scream"

Esther Phillips' amazing song "From a Whisper to a Scream" sings about the dramatic, brutal, and challenging changes in a tumultuous love relationship...

In this image, the shocking differences between the smooth-but dark vegetation and the bright-but sharp mountainside (as it is casting reflections from the sun) struck my imagination ...

As I am often prone to do, my mind-made titles usually lead me to a particular song or artist!.... As I was working on this image, the song by that amazing and dramatic, Esther Phillips came flooding into my imagination!

I hope this shot brings a song to your mind, be it a Whisper or a Scream ;-)

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:

"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
