~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #248: Mood ~

Sophia Alves encourages us to showcase photos that “convey and create an emotional reaction” this week. As I selected the gallery below, song lyrics that expressed a tone or attitude similar to what I felt when looking at the photos popped into my head, and here they are.

“Softly as in a morning sunrise, the light of love comes stealing into a newborn day.” Abbey Lincoln

‘Twas a sunny day, all the birdies in the trees, and the radio’s singing song, all the favorite melodies.” Paul Simon

“Rows and flows of angel hair, and ice cream castles in the air, and feather canyons everywhere.” Joni Mitchell

“You ain’t been blue; no, no, no. You ain’t been blue till you’ve had that mood indigo, that feelin’ goes stealin’ down to my shoes, while I sit and sigh, go ‘long blues.” Duke Ellington

“Grab your coat and get your hat, leave your worry on the doorstep, just direct your feet to the sunny side of the street. Can’t you hear a pitter-pat, and that happy tune is your step, life can be so sweet on a sunny side of the street.” Dorothy Fields

On your walk with life, please honor our earth, encourage dignity and share kindness. 🐾

    What a great idea to bring music to the mix. Music is such a mood enhancer/ changer. And it helps to turn it up loud when I have to clean the house. Humming a few of your tunes now. I loved the welcoming view of the patio seating, and I picture myself lying in a grassy field, looking up at the sky, singing “ice cream castles…”

      Thank you, Donna. You are so right about music and how it helps us through all kinds of circumstances! I’m glad you saw the pario as welcoming – that is exactly the mood I was going for.
