vipor's Bugloss (Echium Vulgare) - II

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 23 July 2012 in Plant & Nature.

Messin' around with the sliders, I got this watercolour feel.

OLYMPUS E-510 1/40 second F/7.1 ISO 100 300 mm

** 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 effect of your "messin' around", denny ...
love these flowers! we had lots this year, though not as many as two years ago. (last year there were hardly any ... strange, when they come and when not!)
