Finale - Autumn Reminiscence

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 13 December 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The air grows warmer, the days last longer, the sun travels higher.
The trees grow buds which become beautiful green leaves.
Warm months pass and the leaves rejoice in their fresh green world.
But then, the sun begins to change it's path across the sky.
The days grow shorter, the air becomes cooler.
The leaves change into their autumn clothes, wearing yellow, red, orange, purple, or brownl.
The winds blow harder now.
Some leaves drop, while others still hold on for dear life.
Finally, they all release their grip and fall to the earth:
The place where they will rejoin and nourish the soil once again.
The circle never stops.
But Autumn's finale stops here.
We will only remember...until it's return.

OLYMPUS E-510

** 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.
- 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
