Two Things Challenge Red/Blue/Purple


This is my entry for the Two Things Challenge, Red/Blue/Purple, in honour of the Presidential Election. I have got this idea from Frances' ace slide show of North Devon, and am well chuffed I can manage the technology. I was desperate to get a slide show in as an entry, and thought at first of doing some plain blocks of colour like Derek Jarmen's 'Blue', which does exactly what it says on the tin, but decided on these CDs instead.

They are showing music as colour. Blues is self explanatory, Red is passion as in Verdi Operas sung by Pavarotti (I know he is a bit naff but there is a reason why he was so popular), and Regal Purple in the classical music such a Handel's Water music on this CD, written for a King.

That's quite the eclectic collection, especially when we add it to the Rock And Roll we know you have ;)

Sadly, I can't say that any are in my own collection. But I do have a special affection for like-minded people who love music so passionately as you do.

How very clever of you, Bev. You always interpret these things in such a unique way. Never literally like the rest of the people do, but always with a twist. Bravo!

Sweet Irene, there's got to be a bit of a twist because the pictures themselves are a bit rubbishy, unlike all the other great photos people take lol

Excellent interpretation. This was really clever. I like the music choices as well.

Clever! Excellent way to suggest colors thru music. man, there's another thing I know little about, adding a slideshow. I tried a movie clip around Christmas time, and that was a headache and a half. Or was it wine bottles. Tough to remember anymore.

Dusty Lens, I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I like your attitude.

Nice to see all your posts. I am hopelessly behind! I like your 2 things entry, very original! Congrats on getting the slide show on your blog, it's a nice addition. Lovely mothers day goodies, not mothers day here until May with fathers day in September.
Have a lovely weekend!
