California Waves, New Jersey Coast

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 21 April 2011 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

When we arrived at the beach, I parked behind these guys as they were readying themselves to ride the waves. It was definitely wet suit weather
They had their work cut out for them, these waves were ferocious. Out west the beach would be swarming with surfers, these were the only guys that I saw on Sunday. The ferocity of the waves versus the level of expertise may have had something to do with the low turnout. But watcing these 4 fellows, it was obvious they were pretty good. This young man here seemed to really have the knack and so did his partner. What a day.

** 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
