"The Queen Awaits your Arrival"

Posted by Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 16 September 2016 in Landscape & Rural.

After a nights' rest, the Queens Lace blossoms awaken, ready to greet the new day.
This image was captured almost exactly one year ago. I ran across it today as I was searching for a new image to post.

Our pre-moving activities (we will be moving from Pennsylvania to Washington state) have kept me extremely preoccupied. Consequently, I wish to thank all of you for your patience and kindness during this period and I apologize for not responding. Hopefully my responses will resume soon :-)

** 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
