Tivoli Fountain - Good spot for family Photos

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 1 September 2018 in Miscellaneous.

Here we see why the Tivoli Fountain and the State Capital make for a great family portrait backdrop. Of course, there's always one subject who is not too thrilled....but, oh well....

This is my son David and his beautiful wife, Lyndsy, with their daughters, Aurora (in the second grade this year)....and Cecilia..(she's usually happy go lucky but not for this moment;-) Cecelia is in her second year of preschool.

We were so intrigued with this beautiful landmark...I hope you enjoy this ;-)

** 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"

Joyce from Montana, United States

What a wonderful family! What beauties those girls! (I recently read that redheads are smarter and have better immune systems, honestly!) Like the shoes highlighting the flower bed suggesting the girls are flowers too.

@Joyce: Thank you so much, Joyce! The girls,with their red hair, can be Smart-Alecks" too...but that's cool...it shows they can think fast ;-)

Rick from Toronto, Canada

A lovely vibe exudes from your family folks, Denny, and you are correct that this setting is fantastic.
