Flora Photo Challenge

Ok Chaps, ShedQuarters Photo Challenge 2.0 is here at last. It took a tad longer to finalise the Urban Landscape Challenge than expected, but hey, we're in no hurry.

So.... the challenge is flora, that means all plant life, not just the flower on a potted plant, although that can be very interesting as you will see below. Try and keep your hands steady by leaning on something, and take the photos in good light, this will add to sharpness, detail and colour. This is not a high tech camera challenge, two of the last winning photos were taken with an iPhone and a pocket camera. One of the best was taken with a very basic phone.

Also, the photos must be recent, photos you have taken for this challenge, not archive photos you have dragged up from the depths of your hard drive. Please don't strip the metadata when using photo editors (don't worry, this is a deliberate setting), these will not be accepted.

I would like people from other clubs to send their photos too, your best 4 only. The prize, at the moment, will be limited to the best from ShedQuarters, but we hope to expand this, with the co-operation of other club organisers.

If you have submitted 4 photos but take a better one or two, just email me the new photos and I will swap your chosen rejects out.

You have time, we are extending the deadline to the end of November, so get those Autumn colours while you can.

Happy shooting.....

You Never Can Tell Chuck Berry


[C] It was a teenage wedding and the old folks wished 'em well
You could see that Pierre did truly love the mademoi[G7]selle
And now the young monsieur and madame
Have rung the chapel bell
C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can [C] tell


[C] They furnished off an apartment
With a two room Roebuck sale
The coolerator was crammed with TV dinners and ginger [G7] ale
But when Pierre found work
The little money comin' worked out well
C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can [C] tell


[C] They had a hi-fi phono boy did they let it blast
Seven hundred little records all rock rhythm and [G7] jazz
But when the sun went down the rapid tempo of the music fell
C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can [C] tell


Instrumental


[C] They bought a souped up jitney 'twas a cherry red '53
They drove it down to New Orleans
To celebrate their anniversa[G7]ry
It was there that Pierre was wedded to the lovely mademoiselle
C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can [C] tell


[C] It was a teenage wedding and the old folks wished 'em well
You could see that Pierre did truly love the mademoi[G7]selle
And now the young monsieur and madame
Have rung the chapel bell
C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can [C] tell

Me & Bobby McGee

 

G Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headin' for the trains,

Feelin' nearly faded as my D7 jeans.

D7 Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained,

Took us all the way to New Or-G-leans.

G I took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana

And was blowin' sad while G7 Bobby sang the C blues,

With them windshield wipers slappin' time and

G Bobby clappin' hands D7 we sang up every song

That driver G knew.

 

C Freedom's just another word for G nothin' left to lose,

D7 And nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's G free,

C Feelin' good was easy, Lord, G when Bobby sang the blues,

And D7 buddy, that was good enough for me,

Good enough for me and my Bobby G McGee.

 

G From the coalmines of Kentucky to the California sun,

Bobby shared the secrets of my D7 soul,

Standin' right beside me through everythin' I done,

And every night she kept me from the G cold.

G Then somewhere near Salinas, Lord, I let her slip away,

She was lookin' for G7 the home I hope she'll C find,

Well I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday,

G Holdin' Bobby's D7 body close to G mine.

 

C Freedom's just another word for G nothin' left to lose,

D7 And nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's G free,

C Feelin' good was easy, Lord, G when Bobby sang the blues,

And D7 buddy, that was good enough for me,

Good enough for me and my Bobby G McGee.

 

G la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la G la-la-la-la-la

G la-la-la-la me and Bobby D7 McGee,

D7 la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la

D7 la-la-la-la, me and Bobby G McGee,

 

C Freedom's just another word for G nothin' left to lose,

D7 And nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's G free,

C Feelin' good was easy, Lord, G when Bobby sang the blues,

And D7 buddy, that was good enough for me,

Good enough for me and my Bobby G McGee.
