Sammamish River and Trail - Redmond, WA USA

Posted by Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 15 July 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

Straight up the Sammamish River.

Pronounced “suh-maam-ish”) the word “Sammamish” is a Native American Indian term derived from “samma”meaning “the sound of the blue crane (or heron)” merged with “mish” meaning “river.”

This view is looking due North. The Sammamish River runs mostly north from Lake Sammamish to Lake Washington - a distance of about 24 miles. There is a wonderful trail that is friendly to bicyclists, runners, walkers, wheelchair users, and even photographers…We use it frequently…every day is a different surprise ;-)

I shot this from a bridge that crosses over the river...The trail is on the right hand side hidden by the vegetation down there

** 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
