Last Long Look and a Message from Denny

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 29 July 2011 in Landscape & Rural.

This is, admittedly, a mere "postcard" image, however it is the last expansive look we will have in this very long series in which I dearly hope that I did not "Acadia Everyone" to Death! Acadia National Park certainly is a beautiful place. I strongly suggest that everyone who can visit it, please do so. There is SO much to see in this park that I did not even show you. Tomorrow another glimpse of the rocks and then Saturday a farewell shot. Sunday, who knows.

And now, it is time that I tell you I will be slowing down the frequency of my posts. I know I have noted this before and did not always "follow through" but I believe I will this time. There is so much learning and creative work with music, combined with photography, that I strongly want to do. All of this is coupled with the fact that I still have a "day job" and the coming weeks may be very heavily-laden in that regard. And there just aren't enough hours in the day to do all of that ;-)

I will try to post an average of 2-3 images per week but it may often drop to just 1. As I mentioned, I have so much to learn in order to improve my skills and I feel as though, right now, i am just "throwing stuff up there" instead of concentrating on improving for quality, not quantity.

But we'll see....I will do what I can because I just LOVE all of you and all the wonderful comments you have and all that beautiful photography that each and every one of you displays. I will certainly still be here to provide my famous and "greatly sought after" comments and remarks! To me, that part of it is at least 50% of the fun of this wonderful family we call Aminus3.

And so - with that - I'll have some shots the next 2 or 3 days and then, you wil likely see fewer of my posts per week, but certainly NOT a slowdown in my remarks to others :-) I love all of you too to stay away.

Cheers gang! - DJ

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"
