Happy 49th Anniversary

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 21 December 2017 in People & Portrait.

A rare image of this married couple ...featuring yours truly and my wife Barbara.

We have been married 49 years as of this date, 21 December 2017
Anyone who sticks with me for that long deserves a medal....
Love is all around us!
Of course, it's not all wine and roses. But Barbara is my rock and she keeps me on the right path.
Technically, this is not the best quality image (a selfie with my iPhone), but my beautiful Barbara more than capably makes this image quite enjoyable.
She also makes life more than wonderful for me ;-) Happy 49th Anniversary to the both of us ;-)

- " 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"
