The Sunday Creative - Denim


The prompt this week for Maegan's Sunday Creative was denim.  I spent the weekend getting back to nature so there were plenty of opportunities to work on the assignment.  My first attempt was a simple shot of me (in my favorite jeans) sitting on the shore of the Cumberland River.  Notice the jade green toes.


I would have considered myself done, but later that same day I found myself exploring the Levi Jackson State Park.  What says denim more than its most famous brand - Levi.

Today's song really takes me back.  When I was young I slept at my grandma & grandpa's house every Friday night.  They'd let me stay up late and watch shows my parents would have outlawed, and let me get up early and watch all the cartoons I wanted.  Because even then I like to listen to music, my grandma bought me a little record player and a few records to keep at her house.  To go along with my Strawberry Shortcake and Smurf records somehow a 45 with Conway Twitty's "Tight Fittin' Jeans" made it into my collection.  I can't remember now which one of us loved it most, but my grandma used to put that record on and dance around the house me, we'd dance ourselves silly.  What sweet memories - music does have the power to take me back.

I like that Levi immediately makes you think of jeans and denim but the photo isn't directly related - nice jump.

You guys and your denim! Makes me want to break out the jeans and snap some pictures. Also, LOVE all the music on your blog. Fiance just came home today raving about the song Out of The Blue by Julian Casablancas. Have you heard it?
