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

the aurora is risin‘ behind us

© La Bamba, Schmachtenhagen 2010 by Fritsch

And me I just got tired of hangin‘ in them dusty arcades bangin‘ them pleasure machines / Chasin‘ the factory girls underneath the boardwalk where they promise to unsnap their jeans / And you know that tilt-a-whirl down on the south beach drag / I got on it last night and my shirt got caught (Bruce Springsteen)

  1. The composition and BW is gorgeous, like always. In my portofolio I have a report on the fair and its attractions, you can see here

    I include your blog in my links list? Will be a honor if you accept.

    „Well I walked right on to your rebel roadside
    The one that rambles on for a million miles
    Yes I walk down this road searchin‘ for your love and ah my soul too
    But when I find ya I ain’t gonna let go.“ hendrix, gypsy eyes.
    Powerful one. Sorry that didn’t post for a moment, but I just finish my trip to tokyo, to make streetphotography. I’ve got to develop all my film in B&W, everything is home made so it’s a long job! I hope we can talk about that one day, keep sharing, Kris

    Welche Tristesse, der sumpfige Boden, die geschlossene Kasse, keine farbigen blinkenden Lichter, die die Menschen anziehen wie Motten das Licht, einfach nichts, keine Boys die lässig rauchend die jungen Girls bezirzen, einfach nichts als ein grossartiges, stimmiges Schwarzweissbild, dass genau deshalb meinen Hirnschmalz anregt und seine ganze Macht und Kraft entfaltet & dazu die Musik von Bruce im Ohr … gewaltig!

    Beautiful composition and catch of sight, damage for this so sad sky.

    feels kind of sad, but I’m hoping it will all spring in to life when night falls. Great image Fritsch

    Das ist echt Tristesse, die Stimmung gut gesehen und eingefangen.

    mit bunten lichtern und menschengesichtern wäre es vielleicht noch trauriger. so lausche ich einer imaginären drehorgel. und springsteen natürlich.


    viele grüße

    Great B&W on this Fritsch! A rather melancholy feel to this shot – like the poor Labamba is waiting for spring and the shriek of happy riders.

    it looks like one of those nuclear bombs has gone off that leaves the structures but kills the people, all the tilt o whirls are safe, is that what counts to some people? looks like only you and I have survived in such a world, to take pictures for the aliens to see when they take over our planet.. oh and make babies :p

    Love this compo and the strong contrasts, great atmosphere in your frame !

  12. Otto K. sagt:

    beautiful B&W. really like this.

  13. L’ambiance, ici, est très humide et même un peu triste.
    L’ambiance se devrait festive mais le temps s’est arrêté.
    J’aime beaucoup ce contraste entre le sujet et la situation.

    This is certainly a favorite for me, Fritsch. It’s pure, with a strong documentational feel to the composition –what I enjoy most about being able to photograph.

    A perfect visual angle, perfection of the lines, beautiful photo!.

    So deep and great BW; I find a lit bit of desolation in your picture, like if there were been a storm around this fair… A great picture!!!
    Have a nice day.

  19. Awesome scene. The wet ground really sets it off, I think.

  20. This is so cool, with a sadness, a feel of haunting memories from childhood days. Excellent on so many levels!!
