Same Wood, Different "Dogs"

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 15 May 2014 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Same tree as before but a different location on the tree. I really liked the way these particular blossoms seemed to extend closer towards my focus range to make themselves more clear and pronounced. I blurred the corners of this image just a little, to help isolate the blossoms.

Today, Thursday, we are driving to Vermont for a few days, hoping to catch some sports action photograph shots. Then, on Sunday, a 7-1/2 hour drive west to Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada in the hopes I can grab some shots of the famous Niagara Falls. We'll be in touch :-)

** 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
