Looking out on Sanity

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 24 February 2012 in Abstract & Conceptual.

A view from a vacant office,
grunged, processed and Sanapseeded.
looking out on sanity
from within the corporate cell
Note the view is askew -
so is corporate life
Twisted and selfish
Greedy and mean
I hate it

** 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

Great shot and oooh so true words, I think corporate life is like politics as you say twisted, selfish, greedy and mean. I'm with Richard focus on the money

Also a view from our so-called civilized world, Denny! What survives of nature is one of our last true forms of sanctuary.

Nicely done, Denny! I imagine being stuck in an office on a glorious day can really bring that sense of loathing. But, it also reminds of what's important in life - appreciating the time we have away from the corrupt world of greed and not becoming apathetic toward the beauty of the world which surrounds us.

Would that all prison cells had such a view Denny. As for corporate greed & meanness I could not agree more it's something to be avoided at all costs. Hang in there & keep your open optimistic mind which is an inspiration to us all.

A great picture within a picture! Eye-catching hills in the distance.

Your image is strong and so well focused on the working man/women's nemesis!

Paul touched a key nerve for me ... hang on to your optimistic approach, Denny, and look forward to the time when you can thumb your nose at your 'powers that be'. ;D

franz from Baden, Austria

this view could make up for SOME of the shortcomings of corporate life, i guess ... but it's probably reserved for the 'suits' anyway ...
long live the 99 % !!!
(franz, in fighting mood ... ;-))

Denny, keep this image in your mind. We all need a way to get through the work day. Mine is dreaming about birds and my next birding trip.
