Ryan the Helper!

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 27 May 2012 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Our youngest grandson, Ryan, shown here as he is helping his dad, Steve, build a scoring booth for the high school baseball team. Ryan is always curious about how things work and how they are constructed. He is always ready to help out on any job and let me tell you, this young guy has muscles on top of muscles!! He is always full of ideas and ingenuity. He is very cool and we love him so!

- " 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
