Line of Sight - Sandy Hook

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 25 March 2016 in Landscape & Rural.

Something we all need right now. Something that reminds us of the existence of beauty and peace.This is looking from Sandy Hook Beach Northward across the grand entrance to New York and New Jersey ports.
The Inage quality is not great but what you see across the water on the other side is the many cargo hangers and warehouses surrounding New York's JFK Airport.

I am honestly not sure what the pieces of sharp wood rising from the sand are (or were). My guess is that they were put there to assist in fighting beach erosion.

** 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
