Schoolhouse Interior

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 15 July 2010 in Landscape & Rural.

The interior of the Bodie Schoolhouse. No one is admitted to the interior of any buildings in Bodie except for a few - but I put my camera against the window and did the best I could to void the sun or glare out to get this shot.

NOW I MUST MAKE SOME CORRECTIONS - THANKS TO GEORGE , I HAVE LEARNED THAT I MADE SEVERAL MISTAKES IN IDENTIFYING MANY OF THE STRUCTURES.: THE POSTING OF JULY 2 WAS NOT THE METHODIST CHURCH, INSTEAD IT IS OF A RESIDENCE, PERHAPS JAMES CAIN,ON JULY I NOTED THAT THE LARGE BUILDING WAS THE CITY HALL, THIS WAS INCORRECT AS WELL - THAT BUIDING IS THE SCHOOLHOUSE, THERE ARE OTHER CORRECTIONS AS WELL SO I HAVE POSTED NEW NOTES ON THE FOLLOWING DATES IF YOU CARE TO REVIEW: July 2; July 12; July 14; THE FUTURE DATES I EDITED. I SINCERELY APOLOGIZE TO EVERYONE FOR THIS MIXUP IN MY INFORMATION AND I WISH TO THANK GEORGE FOR LEADING ME TO THESE CONCLUSIONS AND CORRECTIONS:

- " 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
