"The Street Where You Live" - Valentines Day

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 14 February 2018 in Plant & Nature.

This scene is actually on the street where our son and his family live.
In Vallejo, California, many fruit and nut trees are already in full blossom, which, even for here, is quite early! This almond tree is one example.

This was another VERY difficult image for me to make ;-) I made it as I sat on David's front stoop right across the street...However it was the golden hour beginning so, at least, I get points for that, right?

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY EVERYONE!!

- " 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
