A.J.'s First Easter

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 25 April 2011 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

FIRST, PLEASE ALLOW ME TO THANK ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR WONDERFUL COMMENTS WHILE I WAS OUT OF TOUCH THIS PAST WEEKEND - I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR KINDNESS...I WILL BE CATCHING UP ON EVERYONE'S BLOGS TODAY. MY THANKS TO YOU ALL!

I cannot take credit for this image - it was captured by our son David using his Olympus E-600.
David's natural instinct and talent for photography totally kicks my butt across the country and back again! :-)

The Image I had originally planned for today has been preempted until tomorrow due to by this late Sunday evening arrival' courtesy of our son, David and daughter-in-law, Lyndsy. Here is our Granddaughter, Aurora Jean Jump, enjoying her very first Easter along with the family cat "Yoda,"

Aurora (or "A.J." as Grandma Barbara calls her) is having a great time with her first Easter, complete with wooden rabbit (in her hands) stuffed toy, and bunny ears on her head along with her headband with the pink fluff and the Easter Dress!... By the way, she is now 8 months old...time flies with these little ones. I hope you enjoy.

Tomorrow, I will start a short series of images from the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest - these will be images I have not previoulsy shown.
Have a great week

- " 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."

- 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:

ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
