old midnight comes around

© Glasses, Berlin 2011 by Fritsch

Let our hearts take wings / ’round midnight, midnight / Let the angels sing / For your returning / Till our love is safe and sound / And old midnight comes around (Thelonious Monk)

    Romantik hat ja immer etwas Verträumtes und Irreales. Im Moment genau dieser nüchternen Erkenntnis, erzeugt sie geradezu ihren Kehrwert, und dieser ist meistens voller Schmerz und Sehnsucht..
    Wunderbar das.

    Reminds me of the semi-autobiographical work that Depardon did at some point, good

    I love the austerity of this shot. It’s an atmosphere that tells me that much more is happening. The glasses lying on the table–that’s what I do when I’m thinking or just had enough to cope with for a while. Then, there is the idea of isolation…not just solitude.
    Contemplative shot, Fritsch.

    I like the isolated lonliness here, the surrounding space draws you in

    Going back from France and i find your last gem, these glasses on the table, the feeling you’re next to this scene, not as a photographer but as an actor of the scene, or maybe this is someone else’s glasses… Anyway the idea of a meditation at night (thanks Mr Monk) with something very special: the way the glasses are put, as if looking themselves (if it were possible!) the world upside down.
    A simple and powerful composition, Florian.

    Time flies as they often do.. however, certainly not all the time.. lets just “FREEZE” those sensational ones (HA!).. (a simple depiction?! hmmm but it is not) Liking the styling-treat:)
