Autumn - I Remember You

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 9 December 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

For most of us (other than those living in Southern California and other parts of the Southwest), Autumn is basically gone now (or quickly fading).
As a salute to this past autumn - which actually turned out better than I thought it would - I am offeriing a litle tribute over the next 4 or 5 posts (interspersed with other images)....I hope you enjoy them.

Also please let me again express my sincere gratitude to all of you for visiting and commenting on my photos. am really sorry that I have not had a chance to respond to each of you but i read all of your comments and I really appreciate it.

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " 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.
