Flora-Mania - Part II - "Punk" Columbine

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 26 May 2017 in Plant & Nature.

This is a columbine who has been roughed up on the streets. I added a bit of Macphun Intensify Pro "Artistic" preset to toughen him up....I hope you like.

NIKON D800 1/5 second F/8.0 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
