Photo Journal/ Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement – The 3 Doors Down Concert in Vegas

It’s time once again to post for the Weekly Photo Challenge. The theme this week is Movement. I find this particularly timely since I have just recently attended a free concert by the alternative band 3 Doors Down here in Las Vegas during the 4th of July. It was my ten year old daughter’s first rock concert so it was quite meaningful to us. Add the fact that we were able to get VIP passes because my husband managed to snag us a free entrance to the restricted section – he’s a rockstar in his own right that way. This explains why these photos are kind of awesome as we were quite close to the stage – it also depicts such wondrous dynamism and movement and life – perfect for this week’s photo challenge. Pretty fantabulous experience indeed as we celebrated America’s Birthday!

Downtown Vegas

I took a walk around the world to 
Ease my troubled mind 
I left my body lying somewhere 
In the sands of time 
I watched the world float to the dark 
Side of the moon 
I feel there is nothing I can do, yeah

Kryptonite – 3 Doors Down

I watched the world float to the
Dark side of the moon
After all I knew it had to be something
To do with you
I really don’t mind what happens now and then
As long as you’ll be my friend at the end

Kryptonite – 3 Doors Down

L-R: lead guitarist Chet Roberts, rhythm guitarist Chris Henderson, and bass guitarist Todd Harrell

If I go crazy then will you still 
Call me Superman 
If I’m alive and well, will you be 
There holding my hand 
I’ll keep you by my side with 
My superhuman might 
Kryptonite

Kryptonite – 3 Doors Down

You called me strong, you called me weak
But still your secrets I will keep
You took for granted all the times I
Never let you down
You stumbled in and bumped your head, if
Not for me then you’d be dead
I picked you up and put you back
On solid ground

Kryptonite – 3 Doors Down

 A hundred days have made me older
Since the last time that I saw your pretty face.
A thousand lies have made me colder
And I don’t think I can look at this the same.
All the miles that separate
Disappear now when I’m dreamin’ of your face.

Here Without You – 3 Doors Down

I’m here without you baby
But you’re still on my lonely mind.
I think about you baby and I dream about you all the time.
I’m here without you baby
But you’re still with me in my dreams
And tonight, it’s only you and me.

Here Without You – 3 Doors Down

The miles just keep rollin’
As the people leave their way to say hello
I’ve heard this life is overrated
But I hope that it gets better as we go.

Here Without You – 3 Doors Down

Lead Vocalist Brad Arnold

Everything I know, and anywhere I go,
It gets hard but it won’t take away my love.
And when the last one falls, when its all said and done.
It gets hard but it won’t take away my love

Here Without You – 3 Doors Down

The gorgeous bass guitarist Todd Harrell

One more kiss could be the best thing
But one more lie could be the worst
And all these thoughts are never resting
And you’re not something I deserve

In my head there’s only you now
This world falls on me
In this world there’s real and make believe
And this seems real to me

Let Me Go – 3 Doors Down

You love me but you don’t know who I am
I’m torn between this life I lead and where I stand
And you love me but you don’t know who I am
So let me go
Let me go

I dream ahead to what I hope for
And I turn my back on loving you
How can this love be a good thing
When I know what I’m goin through

Let Me Go – 3 Doors Down

In my head there’s only you now
This world falls on me
In this world there’s real and make believe
And this seems real to me

Let Me Go – 3 Doors Down

And no matter how hard I try
I can’t escape these things inside I know
I know,
When all the pieces fall apart
You will be the only one who knows
Who knows

Let Me Go – 3 Doors Down

He spends his nights in California
Watching the stars on the big screen.
Then he lies awake and wonders
Why can’t that be me?
Cause in his life he’s filled with all these good intentions.
He’s left a lot of things he’d rather not mention right now.
But just before he says goodnight,
He looks up with a little smile at me and he says

Be Like That – 3 Doors Down

If I could be like that
I’d give anything
Just to live one day
In those shoes.
If I could be like that, what would I do?
What would I do?

Be Like That – 3 Doors Down

She spends her days up in the north park,
watching the people as they pass.
And all she wants is just a little piece of this dream, is that too much to ask?
With a safe home, and a warm bed, on a quiet little street.
All she wants is just that something to hold onto, that’s all she needs.

Be Like That – 3 Doors Down

Finally, here’s a video clip I took using my iPhone (and edited via my trusty iMovie). Enjoy!
