Floating Leaves 3 - Where do they Go?

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 17 November 2012 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

HI EVERYONE - I JUST WANT TO THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING SO KIND WITH YOUR VISITS AND COMMENTS TO ME. I AM REALLY SORRY THAT I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO RESPOND OR COMMENT ON YOUR BLOGS LATELY, BUT, HOPEFULLY, THINGS WILL "LOOSEN UP" A BIT FOR ME SOON, SO I CAN VISIT YOU AS MUCH AS YOU HAVE BEEN VISITING ME. UNTIL THEN, PLEASE ACCEPT MY APOLOGIES AND MY THANKS FOR YOUR CONTINUED KINDNESS. MY LOVE AND BEST WISHES TO YOU ALL - DENNY

Where do all the floating leaves go? Well, of course, they go: "Over the river and through the woods to grandmother's House." That's where they go!

- " 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

Lovely simple sense of magic to this . . smallness reminds us of just how big the world can be.

A very nice floating leaf, I like how you kept a himt of another in the frame so we know it has company on its journey :)

Nice focus and beautiful Autumn vibes. I'm not on here as much lately, either (busy), but we always catch up eventually.
