Beauty Lost - Life Lost - - -

Posted by Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 3 October 2017 in Documentary & Street.

Life can be so rich, so peaceful, so exciting, so stimulating.
Life and love are held tightly by the young and old..
Life, Love, and beauty are so precious to those with a heart and a soul.

But he who has no soul can do evil things -
Evil things were done on Sunday night

Like a leaf that turns green in spring but then, suddenly, has its life taken away, 58 innocent people - innocent and unaware - had their lives STOLEN from them on Sunday night.

Just as the tree dies when it is struck by lightning future leaves are denied life....A void is established......Only the pain and desperation of their absence will continue.

I dedicate this post to the victims and families stricken by the Las Vegas Mass Shooting of Sunday night, 1 October 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

- " 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"
