This weeks 52 is to make a photograph fit a song, book or the words from either. Maybe it’s the other way round? I mean you can take any photograph and I’m sure you will be able to find something that will fit. Anyway you can submit one photograph for judging and one to the group photo pool in any week. Previously I have only show the photograph that I have submitted for judging but this week I will show you both.
The weather has been cold and I know the mountains in the National Park are covered in snow again. Some roads have been closed so I’m staying on the coast this week. Although it’s not obvious from the photograph there was a bitter cold northerly wind blowing on the beach, straight off the sea, so I didn’t intend hanging around to take photographs. I’ve spoken about Talacre lighthouse before so I won’t say anything about it, other than a lot more rocks have been exposed around the base due to winter storms. Unusually for me I’m not shooting for HDR. The Olympus is able to handle the light conditions and since I have got it I’ve been trying to wean myself off shooting HDR for landscapes.
Oh! I never said what song I have made this photograph fit. Well “The Lighthouse”, written by Ronnie Hinson, is one of Southern Gospel Music’s Greatest Hits according to a website devoted to Southern Gospel Music lyrics. See how easy it is to make a photograph fit.
“Ten Green Bottles” is a song that is popular in the United Kingdom. In essence, the song is a single verse repeated, each time with one bottle fewer:
- Ten green bottles hanging on the wall,
Ten green bottles hanging on the wall,
And if one green bottle should accidentally fall,
There’ll be nine green bottles hanging on the wall.
OK! This is stretching it a bit but it’s sort of green. I know it’s not hanging on a wall but it is one bottle and that is in the lyrics. Like I said it’s easy to make a photograph fit a theme.
Two photographs; which one would you submit for judging?
