Spring Arrives (?) :-)

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 25 April 2016 in Plant & Nature.

Still, some of us askl if Spring has arrived, because the weather here in most of the USA East Coast remains, shall we say, "changeable." Nevertheless, the trees and bushes and native plants seem to be finally convinced that Spring is here, so out they pop with all their blossoms! Personally, i am very glad. i Love spring colors here in this part of the U.S. I hope you enjoy this image and the next one I have planned in a few days hence :-)

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
