things in my head keeping me from sleeping

© Konstablerwache, Frankfurt am Main 2011 by Fritsch

Emily said the things in my head / Are keeping me from sleeping / If I don’t go to them / They’ll come for me instead / And the company I’m keeping / And this is how the damage is done / Climbing the stairs in the dark / I won’t reach out for anyone (Gravenhurst)

    „You’ve got yourself a-in a fine mess now, Charlene
    you’re either absolutely mad or you are joking, Charlene

    Charlene, I’m crying
    so close to you, darling
    we’re naked and laughing
    you shine on my battery, Charlene“ b-side Bjork Charlene
    thanks for your big sens of poetic light, you find true meaning in everyday things. Kris.

    Evocative image. Love the repetition of shape and form and pattern. Great eye!

    Der Bahnhof Frankfurt Konstablerwache, ist laut Wiki, mit 191‘000 Fahrgästen pro Tag einer der wichtigsten Schnellbahnknotenpunkte in Frankfurt. Wundere mich zu welchem Zeitpunkt du dieses Bild geschossen hast, denn üblicherweise wimmelt es hier von Passanten. Dass diese öffentlichen Fernsprechanlagen nicht mehr benutzt werden, wundert mich allerdings nicht, denn heute bei dieser allgemeinen Telefonitis oder heisst es Handmanie, hängt doch jede und jeder am eigenen Mobiltelefon.

    Been a long time since I’ve seen any pay phones; let alone this many.

    Excellent visualization and unadulterated execution with that light. Love this sheer, communicative simplicity, Fritsch.

    Starkness and atmosphere all going from white to gray to black. The photo is all the better for not having any people in it–just the solid solitary place–with no one talking to anyone. A nice combination of image and lyrics, too. Nicely done, Fritsch.

    A line of abandoned phones now that people are using their cell phones… Maybe someone will appear because he is too poor, too poor to have a cell phone, too poor to have a place to sleep.
    And a great composition, Fritsch, with the logotypes boarding the right side.

  18. Toujours aussi détaillée…
    Un doux mélange de contraste et de lumière.
    Superbe !

    there’s something with lonely public phones like these that I like… good one!

  20. There’s no telling how many times I’ve written a comment, entered the code, and then went to a different image not knowing I didn’t hit „post“. Anyway, this is a great shot. The negative space on the right side of the frame keeps me off balance, adding to the feeling of isolation. Really well done.
