Week 26 #14 Line From A Song

16 Comments

This fall my photography group went to my friends horse farm.  She has 3 beautiful horses and our group really enjoyed photographing them along with her beautiful serene property.  While this horse does have a name and it is not traveling through the desert it made me think of one of my favorites from the early 1970’s by the group  America “Horse With No Name”.  I know I drove my parents crazy playing the song over and over again!

On the first part of the journey                                                                                                                     I was looking at all the life                                                                                                                    There were plants and birds and rocks and things                                                                          There was sand and hills and rings

The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz                                                                                             And the sky with no clouds                                                                                                                       The heat was hot and the ground was dry                                                                                               But the air was full of sound

I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name                                                                      It felt good to be out of the rain                                                                                                                 In the desert you can remember your name                                                                                     ‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain                                                                                 La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la…

Enough of the la, la’s they go on forever.  Enjoy the photo!

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.

  1. I think I need camera advise. If I am going to be spending more time in Africa, something more than my phone is surely going to enrich my memories! Great job, Carolyn!
