Sunday 19 May 2019..1955 Hrs - Rainbow

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 21 May 2019 in Plant & Nature.

While out for a Sunday evening walk (with my Camera of course) I was unaware of the treat that I was in for....
As time went by that evening, it began with a simple joyful, fresh air walk while the evening progressed.
As the time passed, I noticed a beautiful rainbow just
hovering over the neighborhoods and trees.

Well, the Rainbow never moved - it just floated there in the sky - for almost 25 minutes! It did not perceptively change its position..:-)

Finally, I after I had fired away something like 20 shots, (basically of the same doggone thing) I moved on and the Rainbow finally began to dissipate....I had to keep shooting....That's just the way I am. ;-)

** 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

Ha, I do the same. I'll end of with so many shots of the same thing with little changes. Lovely rainbow catch.
