Photo Challenge – Half Light

This week, the challenge is to share a photograph inspired by a poem, verse, story, or song lyric and to try and capture the beauty of morning or evening half-light.

Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head

It’s been raining most of the weekend so I wasn’t able to get the picture I had planned to take.  During a lull in the rain, I went outside.  I was checking out the azaleas and saw the prettiest raindrops.  The color of the flowers stands out against the half light of the evening.

When I was in high school (no, I’m not telling you what year), I was a dancer in a school production.  It was actually a district wide project and students in elementary school up to high school were invited to participate.  We studied and rehearsed all summer and then performed it for each school in the district and then performed three or four nights for the public.  The production featured a history of all the songs in movies that won Academy Awards.

“Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head” was one of the songs we performed.  For this song, all the dancers entered from the rear of the auditorium and danced down the aisle twirling umbrellas.  It was a fan favorite!

 

“Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head”

Raindrops keep falling on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothing seems to fit
Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling

So I just did me some talking to the sun
And I said I didn’t like the way he got things done
Sleeping on the job
Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling

But there’s one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won’t defeat me
It won’t be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn’t mean my eyes will soon be turning red
Crying’s not for me
‘Cause I’m never going to stop the rain by complaining
Because I’m free
Nothing’s worrying me

It won’t be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn’t mean my eyes will soon be turning red
Cryin’s not for me
‘Cause I’m never going to stop the rain by complaining
Because I’m free
Nothing’s worrying me

Songwriters: BURT BACHARACH, BURT F BACHARACH, HAL DAVID
