Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Let's Get Lyrical"

: Images that evoke the feeling/mood of a song lyric. Lyric must be included in the image or post, either added as an text overlay on the image or added as a title above the image in the post. Song name and artist required in image caption below the image.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.

Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.

You may see sheep upon the road
Bringing traffic to a halt
I really cannot help myself
I'm down here licking salt
My hair is often moulting
Eyes are gold and round
My rump is white and so's my nose
The rest of me is brown

Bison bison buffalo
Biggest bull you'll ever know
Bravest bovine on the plain
Don't forget the bison
And the bison he will rise again
Sorry, wasn't able to find the music video version of this one with a quick search - Link

Black bears in the forest; we like to forage
Grizzly in the alpine; on the incline
The grizzly bear growls: "my territory"
The black bear cowers:
"I'm leavin' I'm sorry - look -
I'm just lookin' for a girlfriend!"
"Well, make tracks, or meet a grizzly end"

Music video version - Link

There was a time,

So bright and gay,

It seems like only yesterday,

When I held your brain in my arms.

Your adrenaline was like wine,

Sweet perfume was your endocrine,

When I held your brain in my arms.

Now he walks in quiet solitude the forest and the streams
Seeking grace in every step he takes
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

"Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.
Where have you been? It's alright we know where you've been.
You've been in the pipeline, filling in time,
provided with toys and Scouting for Boys.
You bought a guitar to punish your ma,
And you didn't like school, and you know you're nobody's fool,
So welcome to the machine.
Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.
What did you dream? It's alright we told you what to dream.
You dreamed of a big star, he played a mean guitar,
He always ate in the Steak Bar. He loved to drive in his Jaguar.
So welcome to the machine."

-Welcome to the machine, Wish you were here, Pink Floyd

Little by little the night turns around.
Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn
Lotuses lean on each other in yearning
Under the eaves the swallow is resting

Set the controls for the heart of the sun.

Thread my way through a string of stars
To write your name in a new constellation
Declare my love to all creation

At the scene of the attack
She had hoof-prints on her forehead
And incriminating Claus marks on her back
Grandma got run over by a reindeer

School days, school days
Dear old Golden Rule days
'Reading and 'riting and 'rithmetic
Taught to the tune of the hick'ry stick
You were my queen in calico
I was your bashful, barefoot beau
And you wrote on my slate, "I Love You, Joe"
When we were a couple o' kids

This world is big (this world is big)
And so awake (and so awake)
I stayed up late (I stayed up late)
To hear your voice

This light is here (this light is here)
To keep you warm (to keep you warm)
This song is here (this song is here)
To keep you strong

(I made a list) I made a list
(Of things to say) of things to say
But all I want to say (but all I want)
All I really want to say is (yes, all I want)

(I made a list) hold her
(Of things to say) and keep him strong
(But all I want) while I'm away
(Yes, all I want) from here

(This world is big) hold her
(And so alone) and keep her strong
(I stayed up late) while I'm away
(To hear your voice) from here

(This light is here) hold him
(To keep you warm) and him strong
(This song is here) while I'm away
(To keep you strong) from here

I've seen the world and so awake
(Keep him strong)
And stay up late to hear me sing
Just hold her
I've seen the world and so awake
(Keep him strong)
And stay up late to hear me sing
Just hold him

Don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me

And it goes on and on, watching the river run,
Further and further from things that we've done,
Leaving them one by one.
And we have just begun watching the river run.
Listening and learning and yearning.
Run, river, run. -Kenny Loggins, Watching the River Run

Taken at the Rogue River in Curry County, Oregon, about a year ago.
