"Just a Little Inside!"

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 11 July 2018 in Sport & Recreation.

In the game of Baseball, There is nothing much more frightening to a batter than to have a 60 or 70 Mile an hour "Fastball" coming in toward your head rather than the "Strike Zone!"
This shot is my youngest grandson, Ryan, dealing with an "Inside" Fastball really close to his head!

I am still traveling back to the West Coast, thank goodness! We hope to be back home by around July 17th....Thanks for sticking with me during this long period.

** 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
