Happy Birthday Barbara

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 1 June 2011 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Today is Barbara's birthday and she hates it when I do this kind of thing, but I do it anyway because I love her and am so thankful to have her as my beautiful wife, best friend, and mother to our kids!.....Here she is with the other "pain" in the house, Cali (but Cali is much cuter than I am so she is a lot easier to tolerate).

We were reminiscing the other day about all the years gone by. Some things were easy to remember, some were almost gone from memory, but one thing that I know I will always remember is that this is the woman who waited for me and has blessed us with two great kids and held my hand through our life together. She has always been and will always be my Beautiful Barbara! Happy Birthday Barbara - I love you ;-)

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."

::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"
