Hotel Chelsea nights

© Wittelsbacher Str., Berlin 2010 by Fritsch

And I’m tired of living in this hotel / TV and dirty magazines / And I’m just trying to get some sleep / Strung out like some Christmas lights / Out there in the Chelsea night (Ryan Adams)

    What we see from outside, which can help to imagine the inner life. But sometimes not. Nicely done!

    they have that room in a lot of movies, the room right beside the hotel sign, so that the bright neon glow keeps them up at night, up reading dirty magazines, i hope you didn’t have to stay there, i hope that your life isn’t as depressing as your photographs/lyrics :) coz my life is just like my photos, so naturally, i’m scared for you lol great shot baby!!!

    Very bold black and white. It’s obvious that that’s your trademark. Very nice use of a single light source. I like how the light from the sign illuminates the window. Well seen.

    Wie Motten das Licht, zieht das Signet des Hotels den Betrachter unweigerlich in den Bann, durch die Spiegelung des Schriftzugs wird das Auge irritiert aber gerade dadurch entsteht diese enorme Spannung in diesem grossartigen Schwarzweissbild!

    btw. Sollte ich tatsächlich nochmals nach Berlin kommen, dann bin ich vielleicht immer noch so be- und gefangen von diesem Bild, dass ich in der Wittelsbacher-Strasse absteige.
    Gerne wende ich mich dann an Dich, um mit Dir als Guide ein paar neue Winkel zu entdecken.
