The Last wall of Defense

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 5 March 2018 in Landscape & Rural.

Like a battered wall, these beaten, split beams of wood - almost deteriorated - stand as firm as they can against the waves... as if the waves are an evil power of hatred trying to get into our land, our minds, our freedom......The last wall needs help because the hatred is upon us!

** 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
