Summer Fun

Active Assignment Weekly: June 21-28: Music to Your Ears

 

Music is personal and extremely important to us all. I believe that photography and music are very closely related.

 

Assignment: You will choose a lyric(s) from one of your favorite songs to inspire a very specific photographic image. You'll need to tell us what the lyrics are, who sang them, and how your photo relates to the lyrics.

 

Restrictions: No words may be used in the actual photo; meaning, your photo may neither contain words from the song you choose, nor any other words (unless they just happen to be in the photo).

 

Hot Fun in the Summertime by Sly and the Family Stone, 1969.

 

WIT: A warm sunny day and the kids with a sprinkler and me sitting on the steps with a cold beer. Nearly straight out of the camera. I did some slight dodging around her hands to make them stand out a bit more.

 

All: End of the spring and here she comes back

Hi Hi Hi Hi there

Them summer days, those summer days

That's when I had most of my fun, back

high high high high there

Them summer days, those summer days

Rose: I "cloud nine" when I want to

Freddie: Out of school, yeah

Larry: County fair in the country sun

Sly: And everything, it's true, ooh yeah

All: Hot fun in the summertime x 4

All: First of the fall and then she goes back

Bye bye bye bye there

Them summer days, those summer days

Rose: "Boop-boop-ba-boop-boop" when I want to

Freddie: Out of school, yeah

Larry: County fair in the country sun

Sly: And everything, it's true, ooh yeah

All: Hot fun in the summertime x 4
