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

may the wind blow, may the moonlight know your name

© La Ragée, France 2011 by Fritsch

Last time I was here you were waiting / You’re not waiting anymore / The windows broke and the smoke’s escaping / All the books scattered across the floor / And the churchbells are ringing through the sirens / And your coat was full of bullet holes / Last time I was here you were waiting / You’re ain’t waiting anymore (Ryan Adams)

    Eine leere Liege, ein festgezurrter Sonnenschirm, stürmische Wolken, ein Wind der sich an den Büschen und Bäumen festkrallt – ja, dieses Bild symbolisiert das Warten – denn wir warten immer auf irgendetwas – auf besseres Wetter, auf die Herzensdame, auf kommende Zeiten, auf Urlaub, auf Tag oder Nacht, auf volle Gläser und Teller und natürlich auf neue Bilder die du uns hier 2x wöchentlich zeigst – Ein grosses Danke lieber Fritsch!

    So sad…so evocative. I can feel that sense of ‘waiting’.

    So much to look at here, the menacing sky and deserted outdoors alongside the leafy tree and umbrella. I like this very much Florian

  4. Desolation hangs in the cold air, her smell fading with every breath taken. Sometimes, when it get’s dark enough, you wonder when she will vanish, completely.

    Eine Ode an den Untergang mit Stil. Doch ist es wirklich ein Untergang? Das hat so viel Wohlwollen, dass es keiner sein kann – trotz aller Last, die es zu tragen gibt.
    Danke dafuer und viele Gruesse

    The winds build up, clouds are moving but there is no one to set sail. Beautiful capture

    LOve how you find intersting things in ordinary pieces of life. Clever composition!!
    Have a nice day.

  8. Als ob man die Melancholie, die Sehnsucht und das Weh dadurch vertreiben könnte, indem man sie ordentlich verschnürt…

    A fantastic composition, a great black and white, a dramatic sky, une absence énigmatique, a vontade de falar todas as linguas, the will to invent new languages. And you made it, shooting this powerful scene, full of unfold memories ready to get out of my mind.
    Nota 10, como se fala aqui, Florian.

    I like very much this one for the melancholic atmosphere, as in a majority of your picts.
    Very good photostream, sure I shall return.…

  14. ay, this is great stuff, Fritsch!

    love the sad beauty and the sense of abandonment and the perfect combination with Ryan’s lyrics…..

    can’t argue with “you’re not waiting anymore”….

    wonderful!

    Loving the “mode and mood” this picture ROAR…

    For ya listening pleasure my friend – this picture remind me of this song [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tO4dxvguQDk ] somehow, somewhat (HA!)

    [ I waited 'til I saw the sun
    I don't know why I didn't come
    I left you by the house of fun
    I don't know why I didn't come
    I don't know why I didn't come

    When I saw the break of day
    I wished that I could fly away
    Instead of kneeling in the sand
    Catching teardrops in my hand

    My heart is drenched in wine
    But you'll be on my mind
    Forever

    Out across the endless sea
    I would die in ecstasy
    But I'll be a bag of bones
    Driving down the road alone

    My heart is drenched in wine
    But you'll be on my mind
    Forever

    Something has to make you run
    I don't know why I didn't come
    I feel as empty as a drum
    I don't know why I didn't come
    I don't know why I didn't come ]
