My "Private Dancer" - (Kudo's to Tina)

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 7 April 2018 in Abstract & Conceptual.

I was in the front yard yesterday (Friday) having a wonderful time shooting the gorgeous cherry tree and other blossoms that are (finally) beginning to pop up despite the Seattle weather...
I was intrigued with the central trunk and branches and saw a vision of a curvaceous dancer....SO here she is - My Private Dancer. ...I hope you like her ;-) Title Credit Definitely goes to Tina Turner!!

** 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

A great interpretation as to what you see in the branches and trunk of the tree!! Beautiful blossoms as well. It makes me yearn for warmer temps here.
