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

to drop some golden orb of perfect song into our deep, dear silence

© Avishai Cohen, Berlin, 2017, Florian Fritsch

When our two souls stand up erect and strong / Face to face, silent, drawing nigh and nigher / Until the lengthening wings break into fire / At either curvèd point,—what bitter wrong / Can the earth do to us, that we should not long / Be here contented? Think. In mounting higher / The angels would press on us and aspire / To drop some golden orb of perfect song / Into our deep, dear silence. (Avishai Cohen, poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning)

    Einstimmung, der Moment vorm Beginnen, das, was noch nicht zu hören ist, aber im nachfolgenden Spiel immer anwesend bleibt.
    Und für uns gilt:
    Innehalten und Fliegen,
    auch wenn wir stürzen.
    Ein Ausnahme-Bläser in einer Ausnahme-Formation.
    Gruß Uwe

    Avishai listening and thinking, you captured him so well, Florian. How can we resist to the temptation to join this flow? These moments let me happy, bro. And I would like to live more and more!

    I really love these low key portraits, the darkness that looks isolating but somehow connects us with whoever is in the frame. Love these musical portraits Florian
