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

plan to crawl outside these walls, close my eyes & see

© Westjütland bei Skjern, Denmark 2012 by Fritsch

I plan to crawl outside these walls, close my eyes and see / And fall into the heart and arms of those who wait for me / I cannot move a mountain now, I can no longer run / I cannot be who I was then in a way I never was (Roseanne & Johnny Cash)

    So you decided to include a lamp post in this composition. So you are disturbing some viewers. So you make me wonder of the necessity of such an equipment, not on this picture, but in such a place. Our world is definetely so strange to me! That’s great for the fishes to get their way illuminated at night, that’s great for me to feel like a fish in this canal, that’s a privilege, Florian, to follow your very secret paths.

    in a way, i never was, it’s funny how life slips through your fingers and you wonder if everything you created was just in your imagination… some things are eternal though, i’m sure of it. the joy we give to others was written in the stars before the march of time, your heart and mine were destined to entwine, through our sharing, here, on photography blogs that will disappear…

    Ein Foto – fast wie mit der Feder gezeichnet, so kleinteilig-miniaturhaft die Gräser und so unendlich die Absufung der Grauwerte. Schön auch, wie Weg und Kanal parallel verlaufen und im Unbestimmten des oberen Randes enden. Irritierend die Lampe – und der Standpunkt: leicht erhöht, wodurch eine Überschaulandschaft am Meer sich dem Blick bietet, der – wie schon angedeutet – einzig durch die merk-würdige Lampe in seinem Genuss der Weite gestört wird. Ja, es ist eine Störung, oder gar eine Verstörung. Denn was hat sie an diesem Ort zu suchen? Und vor allem: Wo steht sie? Ein surreales Ding, ein technoides Zeichen mitten in einer Landschaft, die gerade davon nichts ahnen lässt und auch nichts ahnen lassen will. Ob nun vorgefunden oder hineingesetzt: Erst dadurch erhält das Bild seine Spannung, sein Geheimnis, sogar seine Rätselhaftigkeit: Was sonst die unverfängliche Schwarzweiß-Studie einer Landschaft wäre, wird so zu einer Ansicht, die zu denken gibt. Gruß, Uwe

    The inclusion of the street light seems to imply that there is a crossing over the barrier of the water–and it leads to the road that runs parallel to the waterway. Either the road or the water could be a path to follow, but the road may lead to a greater freedom. Most people would seek that. We all seek to escape the barriers and boundaries–the ones that truly hinder us. On the other side, though, are boundaries that we accept thinking that they protect us. Which one do we choose? What do we escape in going from one to the other? Ah, life, Fritsch. It’s a mystery at times. (I like the leading lines of the waterway and road. The streetlight and the boom in the water could give rise to many other stories as well.) Nicely done!

    A rare of occurrence of harmony between the man made and the natural, just lines, curves, light and shadow, black and white. Beautiful Florian !

    The presence of the street lamp is really very strange… I like the play with harmonious lines which go away in de depth of the picture: an invitation to leave cities…
    Have a nice day.
