Rainier Visions

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 9 November 2018 in Landscape & Rural.

Mount Rainier as seen through the light and autumn colours of dusk in Redmond, Washington This is seen from beautiful Marymoor Park in Redmond, Washington....The park borders the northern shores of Lake Sammamish and the Sammamish river. It contains miles of hiking and biking trails, river rowing channels and all sorts of other park features.

Mount Rainier is in excess of 14,000 feet and seems huge even here, as we stand 80 miles to the north of that massive, beautiful volcano... hopefully dormant ....thus far...

** 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
