Wabi Sabi - Debbie's Back Yard

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 14 April 2019 in Plant & Nature.

My Sister-in-Law, Debbie, has a wonderful array of plants in her back yard (which is HUGE!
I hadn't been over to see her for a while, so, even though it was a gloomy day, I hopped out back and made a few images...

This particular scene reminded me of a typical Wabi-Sabi image that contained old/dead/dying with New/blooming/ Flowering plants ....

.Here we see Red Dogwood, Purple fluffy azalea and other plants.
I hope you like this scene ;-)

- " 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
