"The Cape" - Sunrise

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 1 August 2014 in Landscape & Rural.

We visited Cape Cod to see my sister who lives in Connecticut (about 2-1/2 hours drive from this point on Cape Cod) and brother who traveled all the way from Northern California. My sister's family, sons and daughter, and most of her grandkids were there. I woke up at 5 AM, put on my sandals, grabbed my camera pack and tripod and walked down the slope adjacent to the back of the house, right down to the beach. it took me all of about 4 minutes. I wish all shots were that easy to get to :-) I hope you enjoy this one...

** 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
