The What

Inspired by Hilary and the talent she has for combining song lyrics with her beautiful photographs, I decided to share some of my own pictures and a few words from each song on the latest Rush CD.

**(the band, people!!)**


“Sometimes the fortress is too strong
or the love is too weak”

[Armor And Sword]

Grayland Beach June 2006 003

“Though we might have precious little
It’s still precious”

[Bravest Face]

Dave in Balad

“The best we can agree on
Is it could have been worse
What happened to your old
Benevolent universe?”

[Good News First]

2009 February 025

Like a stone in the river
Against the floods of Spring
I will quietly resist


Grayland Beach June 2006 020

“The ebb and flow of tidal fortune”

[Far Cry]

Cross-Country Move, 7-12 to 7-17-2007 002

“Driving down the razor’s edge between past and future
I turn up the music and smile, eyes on the road ahead”

[Workin’ Them Angels]

DSCN0527 bedroom of the homeless

“Why such different fortunes and fates?
Some are blessed and some are cursed
Some live behind iron gates
While others see only the worst”

[The Larger Bowl (A Pantoum)]


“Like the solitary pine
On a bare wind-blasted shore
We can only grow the way the wind blows”

[The Way The Wind Blows]

Balls Bluff Regional Park 007

“How many times
Do we tire of all the little battles”

[We Hold On]

Cape Disappointment 002

“As the sun goes down on the western shore”

  1. Oh, well done KC! Lovely photos, I like the one of Superdad holding the baby in the tent. The sunset over the water is beautiful.

    The name on the headstone is my grandfathers name! Of course, there is probably no connection, but, weird.

  2. BRAVO! You did this very well :).

  3. This is so well done. The photos! The lyrics! Wow.

  4. wow, did this take forever?

  5. KC you did a wonderful job of matching beautiful photos with touching lyrics. I love the solitary pine, the gravestone, and the street photo of the homeless. Just perfect. And thank you so much for the mention and linkage. I’m touched (and not just in the head). 🙂

  6. What a wonderful treat! Really, you invested some thought into this 😉

  7. I just loved it. The pictures and the lyrics went together so well.

  8. What a truly beautiful post to read late on a Sunday night.

  9. Wow, I just love the combinations, and you’ve got so many beautiful shots! Really loved this.

  10. That is very cool! I like that idea, of combining lyrics with pictures…it’s very poetic.

    What did you have planned for Friday? Time?
