Thematic Photography - 224 - Mellow Yellow


Thematic Photographic 

and "Mellow Yellow?" as our theme from Carmi, for this week.

Hm, this really does sound like a bright idea!
Instead of using quotes, and in all silliness, see if you know what song guided my writing. 
(You can click on photos to enlarge them)

Once upon a time in Mellow-Yellows~ville there lived a mellow-yellow-llama-llama

(not the llama-llama who wears red pajamas)

In this town where I wasn't born
lived a mellow-yellow llama
who loved to eat his corn
we all come to see this mellow-yellow llama
in his land of mellow-yellow fields where he was born.

Much like our mellow-yellow fields
where we were born
till we find another mellow scene
we'll live beneath these mellow leaves
dreaming of our mellow-yellow llama's mellow scene.

and our friends are all aboard
many more of them live next door
and the band begins to play
for mellow-yellow llamas everywhere.


and when our fellow mellow-yellow llama takes a spell
to eat and wallow
in his corn
  we'll all ride this carousel
taking turns on Rochelle the gazelle
while our mellow-yellow llama takes a spell.

 Oh yes, our friends are all aboard
as we all meet by the mellow-yellow door
we'll hear the music begin to play

as we'll gather for a cup of mellow tea
 or something with stronger waves
then mellow tea
and in time, truth shall prevail
as we live a life of ease.
Everyone of us has all we need
sky of blue and sea of green
and mellow tea
and a mellow-yellow llama llama
saying hello - hello
as we enjoy a life of ease
Can you name that song?
Written and created by me
especially for
(and TP)
a few little happy-faced children I know and love!

Interesting, a posing lama. Lucky he didn't spit in the camera.

It's hard not to laugh at a llama close up. :) They always look like they just got out of bed.

You were certainly in a mellow mood! Love the llama - and I covet that espresso machine (at least I think that's what it is...)

Alexia- He sure is adorable, and you are right it is an espresso machine! How can one not be in a mellow mood with his expression right!

21 Wits said...

Lisa- That's the first time I've heard that, but you know it makes perfect sense!

LOVE the llama, Karen! So cute :) Many of your shots were very creative. Some of my favs were the stone in the leaves and the church door.
