August 2019 Photo Challenge

August 2019 Photo Challenge

     My love of music has inspired me to connect songs and artists to photographs and events. As a fan of Neil Diamond, I dedicate this month's theme to his August 24, 1972 live album:

Hot August Night

     Your challenge is to create a photo that represents
a) a Hot August Night or
b) any of the songs from Neil's album.
If you choose a song, please provide the title of the song and a YouTube link to it.

     For the benefit of those who may be unfamiliar with Neil Diamond or these songs, I have complied a track list of the songs with YouTube video links and lyrics. Different people can use the same song for their entry. Your interpretation is all that matters.

Song list
Note: Some tracks may not be available on YouTube. The list below is for the vinyl two-disc album.

Disc One
Side 1: 1. Prologue / 2. Crunchy Granola Suite / 3. Done Too Soon / 4. Dialogue / 5. Solitary Man / 6. Cherry, Cherry / 7. Sweet Caroline
Side 2: 1. Porcupine Pie / 2. You're So Sweet / 3. Red Red Wine / 4. Soggy Pretzels / 5. And the Grass Won't Pay No Mind / 6. Shilo / 7. Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon

Disc Two
Side 1: 1. Play Me / 2. Canta Libre / 3. Morningside / 4. Song Sung Blue / 5.Cracklin' Rosie
Side 2: 1. Holly Holy / 2. I Am... I Said / 3. Soolaimon / 4. Brother Love's Travelling Salvation Show

August 2019 Photo Challenge rules:
   1. All photos must be in compliance with all Gallery and Forum rules of Our Doll Community.
   2. Photo editing, including Photoshop is allowed. (Photos should be judged on composition, not technical expertise.)
   3. All types of dolls are welcome regardless of make, model, material, or gender.
   4. Photos may contain more than one doll.
     a. Doll owners may collaborate on a photo shoot. Photo credits will be shared by all participants.
     b. If doll owners collaborate on photo shoot, each member may enter a separate photo.
   5. One photo entry per member.
   6. This months contest will be from August 1 through August 29.
   7. Voting (via PM, please) will begin on August 30 and end on August 31.  Votes will be accepted until midnight Eastern Time. The winner and runners-up will be announced on September 1.
   8. Please provide your doll's name(s) and a caption for your photo. A song title can be your caption.
   9. This is not a sales topic. Manufacturers and vendors, or links to the same, are not welcomed.

     Final note: If you post more than one picture, you run the risk of votes being split between those pictures. This will give others a better chance of winning. Hence rule number 5.

Example entry:

Shilo YouTube Video lyrics
This song is about an imaginary friend.

Oh wow! This is a very unique and original theme   :thumb:

Kwench in "Brother Love's Salvation Show"


Not sure you'd want HER kind of salvation, but it IS an option.  :whistle:

Ok, so since we are on a Neil Young theme and Doc and Larry's "character" in their movie, his looks are based off of Neil Young.  So, could I like post a pic of them in their Inherent Vice gear and it still be within the guidelines for this months' theme?  I figured I'd ask before posting and I would use also one of his songs that was featured on the soundtrack, "Journey To The Past"

Docsgirl82,

     Neil Diamond, not Neil Young. Some intrepid fan might do a Neil Young theme later on, so save your idea. Meanwhile, what do the boys (and Samantha Alexa) do on a Hot August Night?

Hehe, ok. Hmm...well Doc is “hangin out” ( I have him suspended on some over the door hooks.  Not to worry, the hooks are merely holding the ties around his arms to hold him in place ) and Samantha Alexa and Larry really aren’t doing much. It’s too hot, LOL! ;D

Ok, I hope this qualifies for "Hot August Night" because that's what it was when this took place.

Nicole arrived in Canada on a red-eye flight this August. She decided she wanted to spend the next day and night in the big city.
So that night she took the metro to down town. On her way she called her big sis Sandy to tell Smoke and I to hold off picking her up for a day.

Ceej,

     "Hot August Night" just got hotter! Nicole sure knows how to party it down! I hope she catches the train to Partytown!

Halleheals,

     Two lovely ladies enjoying a fine wine! Amei could almost swim in that brandy snifter! Journey's dress matches her drink, I think!

;D ;D ;D

     Here we are in the middle of August. Temperatures are climbing again, so there will be a few more Hot August Nights. With all of the cool dolls out there, grabbing a few snapshots should be refreshing! Show us what your girls and boys are up to!

     There is still time to get those pictures in! Typically the Photo Challenges pick up steam in the latter part of the month. Do not let your guys and gals swelter alone on a Hot August Night! Give them a chance to grab the spotlight!

:bow: :cheers: :bow:

Reminder

     You have until Midnight (Eastern) on Thursday, the 29th to get your pictures in! While the kids are off to school, this would be a good time to grab a snapshot of your guy or gal!
