Dogwood Dreams

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 4 May 2011 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Dogwoods, Fruit trees, and blossoms are all in bloom here in the Atlantic coast states. Friends and loved ones in Canada and US States north of us are (or soon will be) seeing them soon. The winter we all had back this way put a real delay in the blooming season and now that they are out, i have noticed that they are beautiful but they aren't lasting as long as they did last year.
I have been trying to capture as many varieties as I can. hopefully in the coming days I can put up some favorites. Happy Spring.

** 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
