songs about roving, rambling and plain hard luck & photography from the other side …

there’s always somebody gone

© Hands, Berlin 2011 by Fritsch

Singin’ ol smokey songs an’ laughin out loud / Playin’ those games we use to play / There’s always been nobody but me and you / There’s always been somebody gone (Malcolm Holcombe)

    Incredible picture, with those hands in the middle. Love the contrast between the humanity of the hands and the dark tuxedo. I love it.

    A break from some of your usual settings, but a very good one. Hands seem to express some impatience and occupation as well. Appealing imagery, Fritsch. Hope you enjoyed your weekend.

    Perfect choice of framing.
    It amplifies the anonymous individual.
    First time to your site. By the looks of things I shall be a regular visitor.
    Best,
    John

    A waiter waiting for the client. Or a customer waiting for the waiter. How much time in a life are we waiting? A shot about waiting. And maybe waiting in vain…
    And a picture, Florian, that could have made part of the slideshow acompanying the song.
    And, with no doubt, a perfect framing.

  13. Un cadrage parfait. Juste parfaite ta photo…

    Wir warten zwar meist mit Ungeduld, aber gerade im Zeitalter der Beschleunigung enthüllt das Warten sein Janusgesicht. Denn in den Pausen und Zwischenräumen steckt nicht nur ein großes Potential für Ärger, Angst und Langeweile, sondern auch das Moment der Möglichkeit, der Überraschungen und des Glücks und des Zufalls, denn genau dadurch entstehen solch inspirierende Bilder wie dieses hier … Danke, Fritsch!

    Love how you framed this. There’s a whole story being told in this single image. Wonderful!

    I like this straight composition, and what we can imagine of what we can not see..
