well i don't know about you guys but the wonderful visual lyrics of rush really lend themselves to photography, so if you have been inspired by the words to make the shot post them here. I'll start with this one!

quietly resist

Like a stone in the river
against the floods of spring
i will quietly resist

Faithless, Rush (snakes and arrows,2007)

Fallen Tree
There is unrest in the forest, there is trouble with the trees....

Reflections in the mud flats at Ellis Landing Beach

When the ebbing tide retreats
Along the rocky shoreline
It leaves a trail of tidal pools
In a short-lived galaxy
Each microcosmic planet
A complete society

The Trees
The Trees

Frankfurt, Germany
The Trees (Rush)
There is unrest in the forest,
There is trouble with the trees,
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas.

The trouble with the maples,
(And they're quite convinced they're right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light.
But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made.
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade.

There is trouble in the forest,
And the creatures all have fled,
As the maples scream "Oppression!"
And the oaks just shake their heads

So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights.
"The oaks are just too greedy;
We will make them give us light."
Now there's no more oak oppression,
For they passed a noble law,
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe, and saw.

Colorful Me

A simple kind mirror
To reflect upon our own
All the busy little creatures
Chasing out their destinies
Living in their pools
They soon forget about the sea...

Oh, now this is VERY good! Mudrick, what have you started!!!
mudrickphoto 11 years ago
LOL i started one the BEST threads on Flickr!!!!!!

Shutter...fantastic wee!!!!! love the reflection!!!!! great work;-)
shutterBRI PRO 11 years ago
Thanks! I'm having fun but I hope we get some more shots
mudrickphoto 11 years ago
me in the middle of sorting out all my photos so i will be posting some more soon!!!
pjeastboldre PRO 11 years ago
The only way to get this thread really off the ground is to Flickrmail all of the group.
As an admin for another group I've found it's the only way. Most people belong to so many groups and probably only have 4 or 5 favourites therefore they don't check out the others unless they are prompted!
It's tedious, but can yield results.
shutterBRI PRO 11 years ago
Yeah, good idea. Another idea is for the admin to pick one Rush song per thread and see what gets submitted
pjeastboldre PRO 11 years ago
Mudrick, it's over to you!! Even with shutterBRI's idea, I still think the admin needs to send something to the group to make things work.
LOL good luck.
PJ. :-)
mudrickphoto 11 years ago
OK i will see if i can send out an invite to every one, so hows about this, just for fun, its set up so x amount of pics are posted then people vote, and then the winner chooses the next song??

thoughts, comments????
shutterBRI PRO 11 years ago
Sounds good...might want to keep it at no more than 5 photos just to keep things moving
pjeastboldre PRO 11 years ago
Yep, mudrick, (excellent idea) and shutterBRI (good follow up).
The idea of the song lyrics is good and the limit on photos WILL keep things moving.
Do we need to vote though?
How about the fifth person to post photgraph picks new song?
Sorry, this is starting to become complicated!!!
Whatever you decide you've definitely got my support :-) :-)
Best wishes
shutterBRI PRO 11 years ago
Take this for what it's worth (not much) - Moderator picks the first song, each person submitted a photo must number it, maximum of 5 photos per song, voting begins after 5 photos, first photo to get 5 votes wins, winner picks the next song (as is not eligible to participate)

Use the following for voting


(the first voter uses the above and votes for one and the next person copies the previous tally and adds one...see below for example sequence)




and so on
mudrickphoto 11 years ago
ok that sound good to me, if everyone is ok with this i will kick things of later in the week, (so people have time to read this!)
pjeastboldre PRO 11 years ago
I've read your proposal shutterBRI and seen the format used before. I think it will work and am happy to go with it.
(It will probably be sensible to start off with a completely new thread as well)
Good luck mudrick!
mudrickphoto 11 years ago
Thanks PJ, well hows about this, i will start the new thread on Monday (9th oct) and see what happens?? that give people a chance to see and read this thread and get the camera's clicking!!!!!

bty photos posted here can be used as well, if the relevent song comes up!! ;-)
mudrickphoto 11 years ago
ok to clarify,

5 photo's to enter each contest only, the winner choose the next song but can not enter again untill his/her song has been won. Please also post the relevent song line your photo goes with.

i think thats right?!

Q - should each contest start in a new thread or just continue??
pjeastboldre PRO 11 years ago
I'll leave that up to you mate!! Just listening to 'Hold Your Fire'. Can't wait for next Tuesday at Wembley Arena!!

I've only just noticed this thread but I've been doing this for a while. The Trees seems to be a popular choice and I'm no exception:

53/365: The Trees

Here are a few more I've done including one I took at the Rush gig in Glasgow last night. See if you can guess the lyric before clicking on the thumbnail to see if you are right. Enjoy. :-)

It's a test of ultimate will
The heartbreak climb uphill
Got to pick up the pace
If you want to stay in the race
More than blind ambition
More than simple greed
More than a finish line
Must feed this burning need
In the long run...

When I saw these two vines, I immediately thought of Different Strings...

All There Really Is - The Two Of Us

All there really is
The two of us
And we both know why we've come along
Nothing to explain
It's a part of us
To be found within a song

i like your shot Lerxist, crazy how the two vines are symetrical like that.
Max, i like the reference to 2112, "at the one lane bridge i leave the giants stranded at the river side. Race back to the farm to dream with uncle at the fire side"
