Day Fourteen – Immersion – 14 Day Photo Challenge

October 26, 2012 in 14 Day Photo Challenge

Sound the trumpets and roll out the red carpet I have officially made it to the end of the 14  Day Photo Challenge inspired by the Triple J’s hottest 100 albums of all time. I have really enjoyed the challenge and pushing myself creatively each day.

Its amazing what you learn and what you can achieve when you set aside a little time each day just to be creative and have fun.  I would like to thank Samara from Maddabling for organising this challenge an allowing me to participate. I have thoroughly enjoyed myself.

So our final challenge was “Immersion” the album title of the group Pendulum.  This type of music is workout music to me. Should be sweating it out at the gym boxing or cycling like you are racing Tour de France.

The definition according to the free dictionary online is:

immersion – sinking until covered completely with water, dip – a brief immersion

immersion – (astronomy) the disappearance of a celestial body prior to an eclipse

immersion – complete attention; intense mental effort

immersion – a form of baptism in which part or all of a person’s body is submerged

immersion – the act of wetting something by submerging it

So thats when inspiration struck me…. Dip – A brief immersion…

Now for my final challenge photograph i give to you……. Drum roll……

Biscuit – A brief immersion in Hommus.

Todays challenge was “Two Shoes” the album for The Cat Empire. It is also the title of a song on the album. I am a big fan of the cat empire and have seen them play live twice and have there music playing whilst I work.

Two Shoes - The Cat Empire 

One day one woman asked him ‘what do you to survive?’ he said ‘oh my dear listen here’ and this is what he cried
On my feet I wear two shoes for dancing ‘dancing to be free’ my feet they’re paying tribute to the Bobby Marley legacy
My knees they’ve got some cuts and bruises from skating all my days when i’m skating with my friends my troubles drift away
I say my legs they’re wearing baggy pants I like to move around cos getting down and jumping up these are some good things that I found
Aeehhhiiiaaaaa boom shak the empire be rising Aeehhhiiiaaaaa boom shak we making some lovin Aeehhhiiiaaaaa boom shak the greedy men running Aeehhhiiiaaaaa boom shak got two shoes for dancin
My waist it’s got a slinky belt with a clip that’s quick to open because loving is the sweetest thing and from my waist it happen
And my stomachs got some tasty food that’s making me feel good cos sharing some meals is something i wish the world could do
And my chest it wears a singlet ah my chest it beating proud my chest suggest I am a man that no institution can knock down And around my neck is superstition hanging from a chain because i’ve got my gods but in the end I make my own way
[CHORUS]
My mouth it’s got a great big smile that shows some great big teeth to friends it brings a happiness and to enemies it brings defeat
And my eyes they’ve got some vision that can see through many lies ah my eyes they look for better things the better things to see in life
And my ears are wearing head phones that do play my favourite songs not music i’m told to like but the songs that make me dance along
Cos on my feet are shoes for dancing ‘dancing to be free’ my feet they’re paying tribute to the bobby marley legacy

Day Six – East – 14 Day Photo Challenge

October 18, 2012 in 14 Day Photo Challenge

What sort of Australian list would it be if there was no Cold Chisel on it.

Cold Chisels album “East” was released in 1980, ranked number 42 on the hottest albums of all time.

Love them or hate them they are a band that everybody knows a couple of there songs. I think they would be number 1 on the list of bands that guys love to sing to drunk.

I am a bit of a silly mood today, so I thought I would have a little fun with this.

Without further ado…….drum roll…. “East” – Cold Chisel      

I promise I will behave myself tomorrow…LOL.. Probably not.

Have a GREAT day.

Day Five – In Ghost Colours – 14 Day photo Challenge

October 17, 2012 in 14 Day Photo Challenge

Welcome to day Five of the 14 day Photo Challenge kindly hosted by Maddabling.

Todays theme is “In Ghost Colours” which is the album title of band Cut Copy. The album was placed at number 36 of the Triple J’s greatest albums of all time.

I don’t actually own this album but played a few tracks on Youtube to see what the band was like. Very Funky, may actually consider purchasing this one.

I knew exactly what I was going to take for this challenge. There is this great little cemetry right next to my bus stop that has some really great headstones.

The light was getting really bad as the sun was starting to set. Lucky it was daylight savings. Changed the photo to black and white with my fancy schmancy camera and than I fiddled with it a little in photoshop.

Day Four – Beams – 14 Day Photo Challenge

October 16, 2012 in 14 Day Photo Challenge

I loveeeee the Presets, they always have me bouncing around singing, dancing, or working out. Great cycle music.

So I was very excited that Day four’s challenge was “Beams” by the presets. The only problem I was stumped there was no way I was posting a picture here of me working out, that’s just not happening. So what other significance did this album have that would inspire a photograph.

“You got me thinking, Bout the kitty in the middle. You got me thinking , Bout the kitty in the middle.”

That’s it…….  I knew before starting this challenge that I would possibly not make it through the challenge without a piccie of my cat. The thing about Leo he does not like his photo taken when I want to take his photo. Although the moment I am  paying attention to something else he all of sudden wants his photo taken.

Drummmmmrollllll……….Leo the photo bomber. Song Title : Kitty in the Middle : Presets Album – Beams

 

I was actually trying to take action shots of the dandelion. Leo decided he wanted to model with it and sat on it! Lucky I have enough dandelions in my garden I can try again tommorrow.

Day One – Young Modern

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.
