My Beautiful Barbara

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 21 September 2010 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Here you see the most beautiful lady in the world. We will celebrate our 42nd anniversary in December. We met on the Sierra College dance floor in 1966. A year later in December, 1967, I was off to Vietnam. She waited - and I thank God every day that she did. She has loved me, supported me,and been by my side all this time.
So, with this image, I begin my tribute to the most important people in my life: my family. What better way to start than with my beautiful Barbara.

- " 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
