Looking Back…The Second Half of 2018 #DailyPics Photo-Song Challenge

Looking Back…The Second Half of 2018 #DailyPics Photo-Song Challenge

Hard to believe it but 2018 is now a distant memory but on this first day of the new year, I thought I’d share a look back at the second half of my 2018 #dailypics photo challenge, during which I not only captured one photograph to represent every day but also tied it to a song title and included lyrics to inspire a knowing smile, a little humming most likely and leave an earworm with you all day. Now it’s your chance to truly sing along. I give you all of the links to the songs that inspired the photos — or was is it the photos that inspired the songs? Maybe a little of both sometimes.

 

The second half started with

July02

JULY 2 – WHAT’S THE FREQUENCY, KENNETH?
#DailyPics #2018photochallenge

…and ended with a fond but ready farewell to the year.
