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 One : Young Modern : 14 Day Photo Challenge

October 13, 2012 in 14 Day Photo Challenge, Inspiration

Combining a love of blogging, photography and music, this challenge is based on Album Titles from the Hottest 100 Australian Albums of All Time as compiled by Triple J

The only rule that exists for this challenge is that the photo must be taken on that day. So I will assume we are safe to interpret the themes as we choose to.

A list of the themes are as below.

Day 1 – Young, Modern

Day 2 – Hourly, Daily

Day 3 – A Book Like This

Day 4 – Beams

Day 5 – In Ghost Colours

Day 6 – East Day 7 – Two Shoes

Day 8 – Wonder

Day 9 – Unit

Day 10 – Lovers

Day 11 – Tea and Sympathy

Day 12 – Three

Day 13 – Human Frailty

Day 14 – Immersion

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.
