"Contemplation" ... Part 1: "Why"

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 28 August 2012 in Documentary & Street.

The Lantern...even now, held forth....
even now, in the light,
Held by Valour as he remembers the darkness that was here;

The Eagle soared....with alarm and purpose,
His desperate flight was a warning and a tale,
a tale yet to unfold.
Why?

- " 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"
