  1. Ein wunderbares Bild! Wir verschwinden in der Nacht, die ihre Dunkelheit hier in ein warmes Licht taucht. Schön, dass an der Bar noch Plätze frei sind … aber das Getränke-Angebot werden wir trotzdem nicht komplett durchprobieren können.
    Eine Aufnahme zum Niederknien, wir tun es, lieber Florian!
    Viele Grüße von uns!

    hello baby, i like this picture, it’s the right amount of inviting and totally seedy, making me reconsider alcoholism as a career choice… love love

  3. ay, Fritsch, buddy, I just love it – it’s my kind of bar and my kind of picture and my kind of jazz,

    and as darkness falls over Berlin night owls gather around their wells and their water holes to drink and dream and lie and cry and sing and fight and drift off into all there is and all there was,

    ay, Fritsch, buddy, it’s my kind of bar and my kind of life ….

    Bottles and glasses stand in the light and the drinker in the darkness; so maybehe feel he’s going to warm at those lights.
    Aestetic and meaningful.

    They say that drinking alone is not a good thing to do. How can this one man ever hope to empty all those bottles? I like the B&W because it gives such a different (more objective?) look than all the warm and sparkling lights would. So many details. I will have to spend some time here to fill my photographic water tank.

    Liquid black spirit, liquid spirit of loneliness, in the own city, in a city abroad, ghost in a ghost city, a solid black and white, mainly a solid black in the centre of the spot, the stranger or me or you, Florian, or Gregory, who cares?
    That’s it and that’s a scene which comes back from time to time, from a deep past, an etherical future, some kind of liquid present, who cares?
    Saúde, santé, Prost…

    Over here we call it liquid courage, what this person is trying to achieve i don’t know, but all those bottles sure could help !

  9. What a great dark and moody shot, oneq can almost feel the dispair
