A Sticky Situation

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 23 August 2013 in Plant & Nature.

A brief break from the sky and to the gardens...The Butterfly seems to be walking on his tip toes while looking for pollen.

By now Barbara and I should be in Seattle for a family wedding. Also we will see Aurora and her mom and dad (our son David and his wife, Lyndsy), so we are quite excited. I have pre-loaded several images for our absence. Hopefully I will have a few shots of the Pacific Northwest to share with you when we return or, perhaps, even while there.

** 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
