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

my dreams just fall like rain, all upon a downtown train

Outside another yellow moon / Has punched a hole in the nighttime, yes / I climb through the window and down to the street / I’m shining like a new dime / The downtown trains are full with all of those Brooklyn girls / They try so hard to break out of their little worlds (Tom Waits)

    Beautiful renditions of human socialization.
    The topmost photo if labeled could be called together alone.
    The one on the bottom is heartwarmingly picturing people coming together celebrating.

    Wie schnell es doch passieren kann:
    Mitten im Zusammensein ist man wieder allein. Unbemerkt driftet man ab, nickt gar ein, und der andere stutzt und denkt: Schade.
    Dabei hatte alles so gut begonnen, eben, beim Feuerwerk, wo sie sich beim Staunen über den künstlichen Sternenregen und die Lichtkaskaden in den Rauchwolken begegneten und beschlossen, die nächsten Stunden des neuen Jahres gemeinsam zu verbringen.
    Ja, so schnell ist die eine Welt, die sie für kurze Zeit gemeinsam bildeten, verschwunden, und jeder hockt bei sich und denkt oder schläft, wieder allein – nebeneinander statt miteinander.

    Gruß, Uwe

    Two variances of the the human experience and you have captured the moods so well. Great photos, Florian. You have the camera that I thought you were getting, and you are putting it to good use already! I’m sure you are thrilled with it. The rest of us are just waiting for more of your stories!

    There are the commemorations with its crowds in the beginning. And then less and less people. There are the last fireworks of the so-called special night. And then there is to go back home. Walking. Or traveling by the tube. Or the last bus. The moment to remember fresh memories. Made of deceived hope. Made of regrets.

    Two pictures that make me build a short story. Something inspired by your shots. And by my own memories. That’s how our minds are working. No way to escape.

    Beautiful stuff, Florian, for beginning this new year. Feliz ano novo!

    The combination of the two pictures wants to tell the story of the celebration of the new year: together in the crowd, and quite alone in the way back home. really like it.
    Have a nice day.
