Death Valley National Park, California - I

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 8 March 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

We are traveling from the west towards the east. This entrance to Death Valley National Park is somewhat lesser used, although many visitors coming from the eastern side of the Sierras come in tis way. Here, we are approximately 3,000 feet elevation but as we travel eastward over the mountains and down, we will descend into the lowest point in North America.

** 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
