For Nick

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 31 March 2017 in Plant & Nature.

This image is dedicated to the family and memory of a friend who passed on 27 March 2017. Nick was a husband, father, teacher, photographer and friend to all. I never met him in person ...but his kindness, generosity and love was always so very strong and he was always there for anyone who knew him. Peace be with you, Nic.k

** 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
