The Witches' Kitchen

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 7 July 2016 in Landscape & Rural.

On a cool morning, the steam boils from their cauldrons.
The witches are brewing up a batch of hatred.
The forest protests and wants to be kind to all who visit.
The witches say "no entry" to anyone who looks different.
Hatred comes from fear - Witches propagate fear.

NIKON D800 1/320 second F/5.6 ISO 400 300 mm (35mm equiv.)

** 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

@Steve Rice: Hi Steve! Thank you so much. I happened upon it on my way to work about 3 years ago :-) One of the benefits of having alternate routes to work. Now I don't work but that's ok, I can live with it :-)
