A Cold Shot- Je Suis Charlie

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 8 January 2015 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

I am dedicating this image to the victims of the terrible killings at Charlie Hebdo in Paris and to all the people of France and all people everywhere who are joining ikn souls and hearts on this day to remember Iand to join in one voice: Je Suis Charlie!
There is no fear in the heart that loves fellow mankind....there is nothing but fear in the cold heart of those who hate.

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."
