"So Fine and Mellow"

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 26 January 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

The great Jazz/Blues singer, Jimmy Rushing sang a song entitled (She's So) "Fine and Mellow".... I Loved that song and still do....Meanwhile, these guys seem to be enjoying a very fine and mellow late sunset here on the lake. Actually, I captured this image a few months ago but forgot about it....I guess it was just waiting for the right time to remind me....Most of my shots do that to me....they wait.

Here is a link to the tune (I Hope)

** 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
