So young modern is an album released by Australian bad Silverchair in 2007.
It was voted number 70 on the hottest 100 all time albums.
My challenge now was how was i going to interpret this into a photograph.
My initial thoughts was a photograph of a silverchair..mmm…don’t have fun. So armed with my camera in hand, ipod playing “young Modern” I decided to venture out into the streets and see if I could be inspired.
What an adventure I was attacked by a yappy little dog, perhaps it was my singing that upset him. A grumpy old man told me I could not take photographs of his beautiful Lillie’s in his front yard. He also pointed his finger at me and said to stay away from the wattle as well. HOW RUDE. The wattle was on the nature strip but I wasn’t going to mess with him as he had a shovel in his hand.
I happily left them behind and kept walking along when I came to the big old stairs that I walk everyday. They are steep cement steps that take you down to the riverfront. They are great for running up and down as many runners do of a morning.
Then came the light bulb moment!!!!
“Waking up strong in the morning
Walking in a straight line
Lately I am a desperate believer
Been walking in a straight line”
These are part of the lyrics of Silverchair’s Straight Line which is on the Young Modern Album.
These stairs are my Day one photo. It is the path I take everyday, it is also the path I take to stay strong when I run them on weekends and its walking in a straight line.
Photos of the other participants will be listed daily in a single post.
