"EEE-Leck-Trickle-Banana...." (lyric from Donovan)

Posted by Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 19 June 2017 in Plant & Nature.

This shot came about as I was Having some fun with my Singh Ray "Tony Sweet Pro Mist" filter and some very wet Day Lilly leaves, right after a rain here in Seattle....

Later, Playing with this in Black and white (and looking at the shining light from the water drops) somehow reminded me of the old Donovan song "Mellow Yellow" and the idea of electricity....

I am trying to branch out a bit - along with just doing crazy stuff...I hope you don't mind ;-)

From the Song "Mellow Yellow" by Donovan - 1967:

"Electrical banana
Is gonna be a sudden craze
Electrical banana
Is bound to be the very next phase;"

- "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.
- Nature is not a place to visit, It is home."
- Gary Snyder.

::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

LONNIE LISTON SMITH:
EXPAND YOUR MIND TO UNDERSTAND
