Rare Commodity: A Beautiful Monday

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 14 January 2019 in Landscape & Rural.

A gray day with some tinges of color....This is beautiful Lake Sammamish (Suh-Maa-mish) that lies east of Seattle in the State of Washington.

Looming above all of this is mighty Mount Rainier....Yes, it IS a volcano - at 14,411 feet elevation, Rainer's last eruption was 1894, I believe.

This location on Lake Washington is very close to our house...We are very lucky ;-)
I hope you like 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"
; Earth Wind and Fire
