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

throw your arms around me in the cold dark night

© Forest, Briesetal 2011 by Fritsch

Well deep in a dark forest, a forest filled with rain / Beyond a stretch of Maryland pines there’s a river without a name / In the cold black water Johnson Lineir stands / He stares across the lights of the city and dreams of where he’s been (Bruce Springsteen)

    I like how the darkness cover the floor of the forest like a carpet.

    Deep forest, i love this and the branches make a delicate graphism in the sky. Love your title too, arms‘ trees are always welcoming and warm. A great monochrome, Fritsch.

  3. Alone in the forest of your mind, roaming, searching for that elusive memory you’re sure you stored away. Did you ever posses it, did that memory happen, does it matter if you feel as if it did?

    This shot reminds me of what we might have forgotten, or might have lost. Brilliant, stark, and filled with what we call „ourselves“. The emotion and truth in your images overwhelm me Fritsch…

    Such a lovely rendering of the forest. It looks as if it’s an ink drawing.

    This is the embroidery of trees and branches over a stretched sky, this is needlework made with natural elements, and your eye, Florian, is that needle that helps us seeing the true material of our mental landscapes. This is „de la belle ouvrage“ and this is something sewing one more layer to the layers of our experienced life. And this is great!

    Like arms surging from the ground, from the darkness etching towards the sky and the light in a last attempt before the long night that is winter

    Spot on framing and negative space. The detail in the branches and pattern is beautiful.

    Like a fine drawing made with a pen and India ink. Mesmerizing.
