Now I'll have to for sure check back each day to see how good I am on music. Maybe if you don't use any new songs II might do okay.
This is a very interesting and an excellent capture!

This month I wanted to try something a little different and start off with images that illustrate a song title or line. I used to take what I would call 'concept' pictures mostly related to gardening which I enjoyed so, to me, this is a little like that. Bobby Ray, I think you'll have fun with this! (I'll give the title and artist in the first comment)
