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

don’t feel alright with all my sleepless nights

© Mathildenhöhe, Darmstadt 2012 by Fritsch

And oh, sleepless night / I don’t feel alright / Somebody said how do you spend your sleepless night? / I don’t feel alright with all my sleepless nights / But I think it would be nice sometime / To have a little peace of mind / Haven’t had a long night’s rest in a long, long time / And oh, dollar bill / On liquid pills / Somebody said how do you spend your dollar bill / On liquid pills I spend my dollar bill (M. Ward)

    Nur ein Buchstabe muss man austauschen (ein L statt einem W), und schon passt der erste Satz aus Nabokovs “Erinnerung, sprich” wie die Faust aufs Auge dieses Fotos:
    “Die Liege schaukelt über einem Abgrund, und der platte Menschenverstand sagt uns, daß unser Leben nur ein kurzer Lichtspalt zwischen zwei Ewigkeiten des Dunkels ist.”
    Gruß, Uwe

    How charming is that?! VERY (HA!)… great ensemble both the depiction and verses you pull off the effect convincingly Florian! It’s “Gothic”… with “all that zing” how clever – Simplicity At Its BEST!

    Ein dunkler Traum umhüllt die erhellten, von Struktur durchsetzen Gedanken.

    Sleepless nights make it sometimes for inspired musical and photographic compositions, sleepless nights we call “nuits blanches” in French, which may bring a coincidental explanation for a black and (almost) white composition, the black of the dark night and the white of the couch (or bed or mattress…), a pure composition, a pure gem of yours, Florian.

    Stunning in all its simplicity, love it!

  11. ay, Fritsch, there’s an almost Japanese feel to this minimalist frame, and I just love it – the stringency and precision and the pure Ding an sich-approach to the beauty of that chair ….

    (sleepless nights and liquid pills, huh? had a few of those the past weeks, pal!)

    keep it burnin’, buddy!

    The best thing to do at night when one can’t sleep is to get up and walk the quiet, dark streets of the city.

    but with a bed like this, it looks so comfy.. :) nice catch!

  14. Schlaflose, tiefe, schwarze Nacht. Als ob die Gedanken statt im Kopf auf dem Polster hin und herirren und immer wieder zum gleichen Punkt zurückkommen.

    Ein irritierendes und dabei fast meditatives Bild.
