We Be Jammin'

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 15 March 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

A "crash" of logs, grass, water, and trees, all "jammed up" at the inlet to the reservoir....No worries, though - when the reservoir was developed, they meant to do this...Out of sight of this frame, to the left, there is a clear access for the creek that comes in from the southeast.....I decided to process this image in Black and White to see how it might look.....What do you think? :-)

- " 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
