Contemplation - "Desparation"

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 30 August 2012 in Documentary & Street.

The Deafening Roar was strange -
But, the eagle.....She knew;
"Get Back, Get away,"
She screamed as she soared,
With danger all around her ,
The rumble and roar;

The Horror,
the sun,
the air ,
the sky,
This nightmare's mixture of terror and light
This monstrous concoction of bravery and plight
The screams, the thuds, the cries, the horror;
"Oh God what is this? Oh my god, is this war?!"

Get back get away
The eagle Screamed as she soared in fury.
With danger all around
Oh My God, No, Please, No!"

- " 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."

::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"
