Postcards from Vallejo - #2 - Old Glory

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 8 February 2019 in Landscape & Rural.

A breezy day in nearby Benicia, sends the schoolhouse flag flying.
Seen through the blossoming Tree in the California late winter/early spring,
Old Glory Holds Forth!

** 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

@Ronnie 2¢: It is indeed, but, these days, there seems to be much mixed feeling within my mind... So many strange haters!
