Chapin Orchards - Essex, Vermont

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 24 September 2011 in Lifestyle & Culture.

Here we are in the shop (tucked into a corner of the larger barn) of Chapin Orchards where they sell all manner of Apple-related items, as well as honeys, jams, jellies, vegetables in season, pumpkins, pies, etc., etc.. And evrything is delicious. The owners also have orchards in southern Vermont that they share with other orchard owners. Most of the apples grown here in this Essex, VT location are "Honeycrisp" (Red) and "Gingergold" (yellow) apples. Both of these variaties are wonderful for cooking as well as eating!
I did this shoot a few years ago but decided it was about time to show some of the images to the "outside world" ;-)

- " 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
