Over, Under, Sideways, Down - Yardbirds Tribute

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 26 February 2019 in Landscape & Rural.

When I came upon this spot in the lake by the shore, with its beautiful, endless ripples and reflections, , I thought of the great old song by the Yardbirds...."Over, Under, Sideways, Down,,:
In the many years of the bands' existence The Yardbirds consisted of masterful musicians who would singularly become musical stars in their own right....Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Keith Relf, Jim McCarty and many others over the years

The reflections of trees and sky in the water, just led me directly into a dream about this song noted in the title of this Post....
...."
"When will it End....."

I hope you enjoy this one ;-)

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"
