smokin’ cigarettes & drinkin’ coffee blues

© Parts of my personality are just relentless 2011 by Fritsch

I guess I’ll take a walk tonight, I know that I can’t sleep / And I don’t go to bed at all, I just lay there and weep / Instead I’ll make our favorite spot, that’s what I think I’ll do / I’ve got those smokin’ cigarettes and drinkin’ coffee blues (Lefty Frizzell)

    They’re both bad for you, but they do make an excellent photograph!

    This picture is my cup of tea, even though I prefer coffee.

    Bad things.
    Most things are good, if we wouldn’t get so greedy, …

    A fine work on shadows and lights. And an atmosphere fitting my feeling after two nights wihtout sleeping because of Vitória’s Carnival !
    One of these quiet moments we all need, Forian, after some crazyness…

    Oh. Lefty Frizzell!…Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Williams. Und: Merle Haggard – ich glaub Lefty Frizzell ist sein persönlicher Hero… eine ganze Welt von Assoziationen und Bilderketten…staubige Straßen, Motels, Coffee-Shops, weites Land… zerbrochene Träume…blue, so blue…

    Wunderbares Fotos, wunderbar collagiert. Danke schön!

    reminds me of the movie ‘coffee and cigarettes’ (with Tom Waits and Iggy Pop among others)

    Das gute, alte Zippo, das Sturmfeuerzeug mit dem typisch eingeprägten Markenlogo auf der Unterseite (nur dann echt!) ein „must“ für jeden Rauch- und Kaffegeniesser ;-)
    Ein stilles Bild, ohne Schall und Rauch, dass aber sehr viel über den Fotografen und seine Vorlieben erzählt.

    we have the same zippo, slightly rounded corners, aged steel, or maybe aluminum, i love that lighter, but i don’t use it anymore, one of the casualties of quitting smoking, but i won’t quit you, i don’t even quit trying to comment on your site when it won’t let me lol… Otto K has a little check box that you check if you’re not a bot, *hint hint* :) i hope you have a good week baby, not too much coffee and cigs, lovely pic by the way, almost forgot to say that

    love

    Might just as well be the start of day (without lack of sleep, but the need to wake up!). Stunning image!

    Excellent shot, with a perfect used of light! I love this BW, and the subject: a good cigarette and a coffee!
    Have a nice day.

    feel like i m in a Jim Jarmush’s movie :)

    Noir to the max. The light and shadow and how the fall on and fall off the objects makes for very appealing imagery. Nice shooting, Fritsch.

  20. I was going to say exactly what Elaine said. The second Elaine, that is.

  21. A beautiful black and white. A subtle play of shadows and well done. Superb, Fritsch.
