PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST!!

:thumb115370633::thumb115370633::thumb115370633:

News Article here: news.deviantart.com/article/73… Please give it love :heart::heart: Note that the journal is more up to date than the news though, with more prizes and you can now enter two entries!

The Beatles are very popular in my home. My youngest son is a HUGE fan, and listens to their biography every night as he falls asleep. We just went the other night to see The Return, a Beatles cover band. Every day there's something about the Beatles going on in my house... therefore at the insistence of my son I decided to host a Beatles Song Title Photo Contest!

What do I expect? I expect you to find a song title by the Beatles and turn it into a photograph. I'm looking for a literal vision of the song title. Creativity is a must! I'm looking for ART.

Here is a list of all the songs recorded by the Beatles: www.maccafan.net/SongIndex/Bea…

Some examples of song titles are:

"Baby you're a Rich Man"
"Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite"
"Cry Baby Cry"
"Glass Onion"
"Crying, Waiting, Hoping"
"A Taste of Honey"
"Lady Madonna"
"She Came In Through the Bathroom Window"
"Leave My Kitten Alone"
"Octopus's Garden"
"Penny Lane"
"You've Got To Hide Your Love Away"
"A Taste of Honey"
"Can't Buy Me Love"
"Drive My Car"
"Mother Nature's Son"
"Ticket to Ride"
"Tip of my Tongue"

and so many more.

Thanks! Yeah we like the Stones as well but I guess they never really took off with my kids like other bands have. I'm just glad my kids like good music of any kind no matter what decade it's coming from and not just modern pop, most of which I can't handle.
