Lillies on the Side

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 9 July 2011 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Wild Lillies have just exploded here in the past few weeks. I happened upon a very interestig array of them on the way home one evening while driving on one of my favorite "back roads." Back roads almost never fail to unfold wonderful surprises.

I AM IN VERMONT THIS WEEKEND AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RETURN COMMENTS. HOWEVER, PLEASE BE ASSURRED THAT I WILL BE READING ALL OF THEM. I HAVE PRE-POSTED IMAGES FOR THE NEXT 4 DAYS AND WILL CATCH UP WITH ALL OF YOU BEGINNING ON MONDAY ;-) HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, EVERYONE!

** 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
