Today’s Song Lyric Sunday prompt from Helen is “Picture/Photograph.” This is another fun one for me and I have done something that I’ve been wanting to try for a while now, creating a slideshow. It is pretty basic and not perfect because I’m doing it quickly so I can use it this week. I plan on making another one when I have time to work on it more.
Anyway, the song I have chosen is “Pictures of You” by The Cure. This is a band that I just recently realized that I like a lot. We were on our way to Reno earlier in the year and since I do the driving, my husband plays DJ. He and I have somewhat different musical tastes although we have a lot of bands in common. He put in a Cure CD and I really liked this song. I think it fits so well in my slideshow. Here are the lyrics:
Last year I challenged myself to take 365 pictures. I wrote about it several times during the year. Here is a post from July. I have always had it in mind to make a slideshow of those photos and when Helen suggested the prompt for this week, I knew I had to give it a shot. I used a slightly extended version of the song because it takes some time to get through the pictures, even though I used one of the fastest forms of the slideshow. Here it is:
And here is the video of The Cure singing the song:
I’d love to know what you think of my first slideshow attempt. I didn’t get all the pictures numbered and notated which is something I wanted to do. I found that the “Origami” format that I used cut some of the pictures as well which is something I will keep in mind when I try it again. Hope you have a happy Sunday! Make sure to stop by the other players in the #SLS group. Lots of good music out there!
