We didn't listen to the radio or a cd-player, but inevitably, the landscape made music bubble up while we were driving around.
Here are some of the songs we sang or hummed along the road (on YouTube, in a new tab):
- 'Montana' by Frank Zappa (1973, Over-Nite Sensation album)
"Movin' to Montana soon
Gonna be a Dental Floss tycoon"
with Tina Turner and The Ikettes as backing vocals! (not on this version)
- 'Yellow River' by Christie (1970)
Not at all about Yellowstone, but still a yellow river...
- ''k Zag twee beren'
See and hear the kids song (in Dutch) we sang to tell the bears we were coming up the trail
- 'Foi um Rio que Passou en Minha Vida', original of Touché's samba performance near Jenny Lake: Paulinho da Viola e Velha Guarda da Portela. See Touché's version here
- 'Jackson', sung by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood - written by Jerry Leiber and Billy Edd Wheeler (1963)
- 'The Long and Winding Road' (1969), always a classic when we're driving long distance... - written by Lennon & McCartney for The Beatles' Let It Be album
All photos in this website were made with a Nikon reflex camera D3100 with 2 lenses, a zoom AF-S Nikkor 18-105mm 1:3,5-5,6 and a telelens AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm 1:4,5-5,6.
The website was composed on a 27" iMac with the following open source programs:
- the GIMP, GNU Image Manipulation Program for cropping (sometimes) and downsizing the images - photo sharpening or brightening was used very rarely. No PhotoShop Here !
- Libre Office for writing the texts
- jEdit for writing the html and css files that organise the website
- FileZilla for uploading to the server
The few movies on this site were edited on Apple's iMovie (compilation of photos of Old Faithful eruption) and a few open source programs.
All photos, movies, and texts (except those signed by Touché Guimarães) were made/written by Guy Voets, and everything is published under the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license.
