"Popcorn Tree" - Random Weirdness Series

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 17 January 2013 in Abstract & Conceptual.

We'll just call this "The Popcorn Tree" because that's what I thought of when I saw the little "leaves" here, in the dead of winter.

This is the first in an "on again-Off Again" Seires that I have decided to start called "Random Weirdness"...My plan is to just show things like this that are weird or strange (see my response to Julie Brown below) and it will be whenever ,,,no set dates or posting schedules....

Stay tuned for the colour version coming tomorrow...

** 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
