A Bloomin' Red Bud Tree! (Cercis canadensis)

Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 11 April 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

2,900 miles east of Joshua Tree National Park, this Eastern Redbud blooms (finally) after a long cold winter.I Captured this shot right near my office - very handy - It grows in front of a nearby Dentist's Office....If the Redbud doesn't care, I sure don't care. :-)

** 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
