Images & Words #86- Favorite I&W Theme


Welcome to Images & Words for Christmas Week, Mia here.

I'm sorry I haven't been around
for the last couple of times as way too busy here with another house shift and
celebrating Xmas with friends and family. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and wish you a Happy 2011. On behalf of the admins we thank you for your participation in 2010 and it was a joy and privilege to share with you all.

 For this weekend's theme I had a chat
with Milli and she suggested we do your "Favorite I&W theme for 2010." So you
look back over the year and pick the theme you loved the most and then choose
a new image for it. Milli also offered to do an album or a slide show from your entries, so please let us know if you don't want your image to be part of that. Thanks Milli! You can see the old I&W posts by clicking on the blog roll on the Home page.

I've picked Joel's theme for week #65 "Antiques and All Things Old", as I love
photographing old cars and things, but never got the chance to post to this one.
So here is a photo I took today in a friends back yard. Hope you enjoy Bugsie lol


       

    Asked a girl what she wanted to be
She said baby, can't you see
I wanna be famous, a star on the screen
But you can do something in between

Baby you can drive my car

Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you

I told that girl that my prospects were good

she said baby, it's understood
Working for peanuts is all very fine
But I can show you a better time

Baby you can drive my car

Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you

Beep beep'm beep beep yeah


Baby you can drive my car

Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you

I told that girl I can start right away

When she said listen babe I got something to say
I got no car and it's breaking my heart
But I've found a driver and that's a start

Baby you can drive my car

Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah

                                By the Beatles


Now for the Rules:


The Rules:

Each week we will post an original photo with words on it. The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography.

Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words.

Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene .

Posts can either have one word on them,quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.

All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here.

New topics will be posted on Sundays.

Posts can be made through Saturday.

One post per person only please.


Can't wait to see your posts,

Blessings for the New Year!!!
Mia

  5. Thanks Lanie I know you're a love bug too lol...
    We left half of everything in the old house in the first shift
    for presentation etc. Now people are moving in (renting) so
    have to get everything out.....

  6. Dana, if you on Panorama Inbox, if you click on I&W there you can see all the themes there.
    If not, the best thing I guess is to click on the home page and scroll through there...
    Sorry, we haven't had time to do a list... If someone wants to volunteer..... lol

  7. I have a list, kinda.... I tagged all of mine. I just scrolled through all of em. Found mine, working on it now.

  9. Was a bit difficult narrowing this theme down to just "ONE". I have several that I really enjoyed doing. This beetle is really fine all decked out in red! Looks like it might need a hug...LOL. Perfectly suited for the theme you chose. Be back in a few as I wrap mine up.

  10. was going to post as Pot luck but when I started typing into the blog title ALL the I&W titles popped up so I was able to chose this title..

  18. I know I'm nit pickin' but - "Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words."
    I think you ought to Credit "The Beatles" with your song. I know it's a Beetle vehicle but some may not??

  19. The one I liked the best was this one,
    http://imageswithwords.multiply.com/journal/item/49/Images_Words_-_New_Banner_Week_40

    Even though it was to come up with a new banner for the group, it brought out a lot of great works from everyone. Just my take on it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. good idea....I'll have to go back through and look at the entries...I've only been doing it for a couple of months, so I'll probably pick a theme I missed! :)

  26. Love your car Mia. I had a blue Beetle in the 70's and I loved it.
    Off to find some older themes.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Great idea you and Milli had!
    Love that car, Mia!
    Will be back later...

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love that old love bug! We had a powder blue one and we had the old hippie camper VW!
    this was a fun theme this week...I chose the "take a hike" for my favorite of 2010

  29. That's beautiful, Sue. I'm very glad your son is coming home!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sue....I believe your entry probably would have been more then suitable for at least 80 % of the past year's challenges. The photo speaks volumes. How does one say thanks to another for their sacrifices for 24 years? God bless him and others like him......................HAPPY NEW YEAR, SUE~ HUGS

    ReplyDelete
  31. Mia I love your little Bug. It is worth big bucks.
    Love your picture, just love the name of the car and
    a very cute picture of a cool car.
    Your Beatle song "rocks"

    I can not express to you how happy I am for you, words escape me. But I can tell you that your photo of the two Peace Doves makes my Day!!!!
    May Peace always be the answer to our prayers. xoxo
    Can I use your photo in our photo show?

  35. You are totally right Dave, I meant to add a video with the Beatle song but then decided not to, hence
    the oversight. Corrected now...

    ReplyDelete
  36. I totally agree with that hope Sue and thanks for that lovely image which made us all reflect....
    Love and Blessings for 2011 to you!

    project that hasn't quite happened yet lol...

  39. What a Beautiful Tribute to Your Son Sue. Thank You for sharing~!!!
    I would Like to say "Thank You " For His time and Service for our country.
    A mere "Thank You" Seems so small for all he has done, but it comes from my heart
    Smiles to You and I'm sure You will Have a Happy New Year~!!

    Peace~!!!
    Weenie

  40. What a Nice "Beetle Bug". Looks like it is still in good shape.
    I remember these Beetle Bugs really well. They always needed serviceing
    and you could only take them to a dealer that sold 'em.
    The only thing good about them was the low gas mileage.
    I Love the Beatles Song.

  44. Bugsie is too cute. Always wanted a red one. Mine was green, a company car, in the year 1979. Hillbrow, Johannesburg. Wanted to keep that car so badly for maybe a child one day, landed up with replacement of first out the box in SA, a VW City Golf, yellow in 1981.Oh my those old cars , if they could talk. *grins* then again, maybe not !
    Back now now with mine.
