In a Blink of the Eye - The Year's Almost Gone....

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 31 December 2012 in Abstract & Conceptual.

....as in levitation, as in "zoom," ..as in the blink of an eye.... Just like our grandson Justin has so quickly become a young man, the year is almost gone. Shown here at surise on Christmas Eve morning, getting ready to be beamed up to his workplace, the movement I purposefully experimented with in this image reminded me of the speed that the years go by. I hope that all of you have a safe and fun New Year! Peace and Love - Denny

- " 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
