September 2010 Photo Contest

Having won the August photo contest, it's my privilege to pick the
September 2010 photo contest theme!

I'm sure just about every one of us, as packing for a trip or hitting the road in our Airstreams has had this classic tune pop into our collective heads! If not, what's wrong with you?!
So, with a single word change, I'll borrow this month's theme from the lyrics of


"On the Road Again"
by Willie Nelson


On the road again -
Just can't wait to get on the road again.
The life I love is making memories (music) with my friends

And I can't wait to get on the road again.
On the road again

Goin' places that I've never been.
Seein' things that I may never see again

And I can't wait to get on the road again.
On the road again -

Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We're the best of friends.
Insisting that the world keep turning our way

And our way is on the road again.
Just can't wait to get on the road again.
The life I love is makin' music with my friends

And I can't wait to get on the road again.
On the road again



So, just in case it's not stuck in your head yet, the theme is "On the Road Again".


Click link for the "Official Rules"

The Not So "Official" Rules
1) Entries must include an Airstream or part of an Airstream.
2) Look to any line from Willie Nelson's classic for your inspiration & creativity.
3) Name your photo using a lyric from the song.
4) Photo quality, composition, creativity and how well they portray the song's lyrics will help me select a winner
Lord knows it's a difficult task without some parameters!
5) Bottomline, my favorite wins!



Here's a cool "song fact":
"(On the Road Again) was written on the spur of the moment in a meeting…the producer asked for a song about traveling.
Nelson suggested something that started with the line "On the road again."
The producer nodded his head in support and Nelson ad-libbed the rest…"

Happy posting!

Shari

Here's a couple of examples of what I was thinking...

Oh, forgot! Well, "Pulling out!" (since that's what it was).

Airstreams on the turntable?

Can't wait to see all the great photos of Airstreams synchronized to Willie Nelson's song! LOL

On the road again

Goin' places that I've never been.
Seein' things that I may never see again

June 18, 2008
Morning departure from north central Missouri, destination Jackson Center, but you can't get there from here because the Mississippi and many other rivers are flooding. Many calls to local authorities finally found an open bridge from Keokuk, IA to Hamilton, IL. Photo is taken on the Illinois side where we're driving on packed stone that has been dumped on the highway to bring it above water level. Many localities reported flood crests second only to flooding in 1993.

Goin' places that I've never been.
Seein' things that I may never see again
