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

the blues you hear

© Traffic cone, Oranienburg 2011 by Fritsch

Goin‘ alone / Life is your own / But sometimes the cost is dear / Being complete / Knowing defeat / Keepin’ on from year to year / It takes some doing / Monkery’s the blues you hear (Thelonious Monk & Abbey Lincoln)

Leaving you with that for a moment because I’m on the road for a couple of days. Good food & the ocean, books & a camera, woman & wine … see you soon, folks.

    I like the intersecting verticals and horizontals…and I completely agree with the lyrics you’ve cited.

    Love the framing between the two bars crossing the horizontals, so simple, just so good

    looks like a nice running track. the bars in the forefront give it a totally different feel of what must be a large, open space.

    Gegen den Strich und trotzdem immer gerade aus. Immer auf der anderen Seite von irgendwas, immer außen vor, immer bei sich selbst.

    Das Hütchen sieht aus wie kleines aufrechtes Kerlchen und gibt dem Bild, bei aller formalen Strenge, einen ironischen, fast schon witzigen Tupfer. Seht her – ätschbätsch. Still crazy.


    Meer, Bücher, Wein… das klingt ebenfalls fein. Viel Spaß. Take care und: Bis bald!
