run to the river, the water will heal your wounds

Run for cover, run for cover the storm is breaking / Father, son, mother, daughter, their earth is shaking / Run to the river, the water is cool / Run to the river the water will heal your wounds (Alejandro Escovedo)

  1. ay, Fritsch – what a powerful image, you spent your days in Denmark wisely!

    it’s almost as if I can feel the wind coming in from the North Sea, smell the salt, taste it on my lips … and then I look at the strange person on the beach – hands folded behind the back, leaning forward almost like a skater …. captured between solid ground and the mighty ocean and the mighty sky …

    it’s … a primal scene, Fritsch, we come from the ocean, and one day we will return to the ocean …

    great shot, pal!

    Wie ich sie mag, diese horizontale Schichtung der Bildgründe, diesen Parallelismus der Linien, diese Weite des Horizonts, diese Unverstelltheit des Blicks, diese Permanenz des Veränderlichen! –

    Ja, es ist eine Urszene, die immer wieder neu erprobt wird am Meer: Traue ich mich? Und wichtiger noch: Traue ich dem flüssigen Element?

    Drinnen oder draußen sein, am Rande stehen oder mittendrin, aufrecht oder liegend, entgegenstemmend oder sich treiben lassend – eine Entscheidung fürs Leben.

    Grüße, Uwe

    Sands, waters and skies… and the „man“, the little person standing in a stange posture on the line between beach and sea, the little person who looks scared, this little person who could be you or me, anyone of us having some consciousness of the human fragility. „Should I stay or should I go?“ or „Should I go back or should I dive?“…
    I look at this person again and again and I can’t decide. That’s the kind of pictures, Florian, when we can’t decide, which is the strongest one, one vision we are unable to forget!

    hello baby, lovely shot, a classic shot in a way, except for the way the person is positioned, which makes it interesting. i think i am running to the lake soon, i need a break, going to buy an RV and go to the lake, and relax and try to just ‚be‘

    Your photo made me smile as I remembered a few trips to the ocean when I was a boy. Dad, my brother, and I would wade into the water and jump up when the waves rolled in. I didn’t think of how big and intimidating that ocean was as long as Dad was near. It’s interesting how we measure our safety in people, places, or things. Those were good days. Thanks for the memories!

    Firstly – a great moment captured perfectly. Secondly – the B&W tones and contrast are spot on. Brilliant.

    Trapped by the ocean, sand and sky, by all the beautiful textures you managed to show us in a bright summer light. A pleasure for the character and fo the eye ;))

    Very nice composition with three different layers: sand, sea and sky. Beautiful. Great job.
    Have a nice day.

  11. There is nothing like those moments you spend by the seaside with your loved ones. Especially when they result in such great frames

    But what of wounds that water nor bright sun can heal ? those that biting dry hot air just sharpens instead of easing ?
