Special Announcment ..... Believe ...... Image & Words week 79







After talking to the other administrators we felt it was time to do something a little different again. There is a video contest on You Tube for the song Believe by Trans Siberian Orchestra ...The song has different meaning to almost everyone who listens to it, so your interpretations are welcome. Yes this will be posted on You Tube so if you don't want your picture displayed just don't enter one it is not up for debate (excuse me if that sounds harsh). This week we are looking for pictures without words and some with words from the song. I would also love to have some video clips if anyone would like to post those. This may take me a couple of weeks to compile so please be patient. I will be posting a sample of what some one did with their  entry and also the lyrics to the song..... We are also adding photos from another Multiply group called Picture This so this will be a joint effort. This should be fun I love showing off your works you always amaze me !!!!!Please sign your names on your photos too ..... Thanks Joel...Milli ...Mia...Amy

  1. So after all those one night stands
    You've ended up with heart in hand
    A child alone
    On your own
    Retreating

    Regretful for the things you're not
    And all the things you haven't got
    Without a home
    A heart of stone lies bleeding

    And for all the roads you followed
    And for all you did not find
    And for all the dreams you had to leave behind

    I am the way
    I am the light
    I am the dark inside the night

    I hear your hopes
    I feel your dreams
    And in the dark I hear your screams

    Don't turn away
    Just take my hand
    And when you make your final stand

    I'll be right there
    I'll never leave
    And all I ask of you
    Believe

    Your childhood eyes were so intense
    While bartering your innocence
    For bits of string
    The grown-up wings you needed

    But when you had to add them up
    You found that they were not enough
    To get you in
    And pay for sins
    Repeated

    And for all the years you borrowed
    And for all the tears you hide
    And for all the fears you had to keep inside

    I am the way
    I am the light
    I am the dark inside the night

    I hear your hopes
    I feel your dreams
    And in the dark I hear your screams

    Don't turn away
    Just take my hand
    And when you make your final stand

    I'll be right there
    I'll never leave
    And all I ask of you
    Believe

    I never wanted to know
    Never wanted to see
    I wasted my time
    'Til time wasted me

    I never wanted to go
    Always wanted to stay
    'Cause the person I am
    Are the parts that I play

    So I plot and I plan
    Hope and I scheme
    To the lure of a night
    Filled with unfinished dreams

    And I'm holding on tight
    To a world gone astray
    As they charge me for years
    I can't pay
    Yeah

    I am the way
    I am the light
    I am the dark inside the night

    I hear your hopes
    I feel your dreams
    And in the dark I hear your screams

    Don't turn away
    Just take my hand
    And when you make your final stand

    I'll be right there
    I'll never leave
    And all I ask of you

    Believe

  2. This will be so much fun Joel. You image above is just awesome! I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone will come up with, as the banner contest we had
    previously was amazing with the quality of photos in there...

    Could you perhaps clarify when and where to post and also if we can post more than one image per person?

    ReplyDelete
  3. It sounds like a lovely project. Do we post pictures on our sites, like we do every Sunday, e-mail them to you, or what?

    Consider my second sentence deleted. Mia and I posted in the same instant. She asked the same question.

  20. Took a little while, but I finally managed to get an entry together. Great idea for a project. The end result should be really interesting.

    Here's mine:

  21. This is really not my sort of thing, but when you have seven thousand photos somewhere, there must be one that would suit. Choosing the words was also not easy, me being a non-believer in all aspects, but the belief in nature is enough for me. I took the photo last week from my garden at sunset.

  22. Here is another one. Explanation: I was on a visit to the central cemetary in Vienna (the largest in Europe) and was photographing various graves, mainly well-known people. It was then that this grave attracted my attention. It is no-one well-known to me, but the sun was shining through some branches and on the left there was a light effect in the distance. the only alteration I did on this photo was to remove the words and replace them. I was so surprised when I really looked at the details on the photo.

  23. Joel, I'm going to get started on mine soon, either later today or more likely early tomorrow (Monday morning). I usually reduce my photos to around 650x400-ish pixels but will that be too small to look good in the video? Please let me know what size you would like. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  24. at least 600 x 800 or larger the larger the better

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hmmm.. I think both of mine are more like 400X650, but I can get you the larger ones. The smaller size just works better in the blog, I think. I also need to go back and sign the second one. I don't usually sign my photos, so I forget! :)

  26. here are mine, off to see the wizard.. uhhh, i mean the others.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I hope I am not too late to post?
    Here is my attempt.
    I will be back around as soon as
    possible.
