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

invisible city XVIII

© Mathildenhöhe, Darmstadt 2012 by Fritsch

A still life with a bottle, a newspaper and a glass / The carrot dangles and the dance goes on, the bitters circle the drain / Emancipate the commonplace, ride high the relief roads / Of nightfall and enchanted ends, revelry in borrowed clothes / Antiheroes to follow too, bar and string salvation / Throw the calendar away, gonna find a jukebox of steel (Son Volt)

    Minimalistic perfection

    Perhaps by being invisible, certain things make the visible even more visible, in this case maybe it’s those colours

    demons are invisible, but visible in the eyes of the ones they torment…. only the seen is unseen…. interesting picture honey

    Ein Leuchtkasten in einem Meer aus Dunkelheit.

    Ein Lichtturm, im Grünen wurzelnd, ins Blaue wachsend, umringt von Schwärze.

    Eine farbige Intasie, die strahlt, nein:
    ein Amulett mit drei Farb“perlen“.

    Der Vergleiche könnten noch viele sein. Aber sie reichen nicht heran.
    Das Bild bleibt stumm und erreicht darin gerade seine volle Wucht.

    Hier gibt’s nichts zu verstehen, nur ein Versinken in einer optischen Sensation.

    Die aber ganz im Alltäglichen, Gewöhnlichen, Vertrauten situiert bleibt. Und doch grenzt diese Aufnahme an ein Wunder – ein Lichtwunder.

    Eine Erscheinung.


    Ich verneige mich.

    Gruß, Uwe

    Blue, blue and green, I read this composition, this gem in its casket, three strips of color at first, three floors after a time. Blue, blue and green enhanced by the deep black contour. A very peculiar blue, a very peculiar green. A gem, as I already said.

    And then, for my mind, an imaginery motel on my road, this road you build, Florian, picture after picture, on your blog. A high road. The road for lost memories to relive, for new images to accumulate, for stories to tell at night, when alone. Travelin‘ stories. The best stories.

    Behind every closed door and every shuttered window, there is a world unto itself, invisible to everyone else for a while, at least. The ones inside have every desire and experience every event–good or evil–known to humankind. Thank God we don’t know all of it. Thank God that we do.

    kinda looks like a traffic light :)

  11. love your color work, buddy!

    the extreme precision of this minimalist frame is an example for every photographer, and man – let’s just find that jukebox in the night, pal, let’s just find that jukebox in the pitch black night!

    great shot, Fritsch!

    „WHOA! to bling“ (HA!)… this picture yet another attractive depiction coming from YOUR „Invisible City“ framing-work(s) you know I enjoy this project-theme of yours tremendously… looking back since 100-years-ago till now… „Florianesque“ Love-It! Always.

    Noch verbirgt sich das neue Jahr im Dunkeln. Doch es ist immer das Verborgene, das Versteckte, das uns neugierig in das Neue, in den neuen Tag, das neue Jahr stürzen lässt.
    Lieber Florian, ich wünsche dir und deinen Angehörigen ein wunderbares neues, neugieriges Jahr!
    Liebe Grüsse

    Intriguing, but very effective picture! You find an unique composition here!
    Have a nice day, and happy new year (I know, i’m late!!)

  17. A photo as you know them.
    A direct message is addressed to us.
    The subject is isolated. In this picture, it is colorful.
    Great delicacy in the treatment.
    An accurate result and very personal.
    I love.
