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

now they’re closing up a world I’m living in

Oh I sat here on this stool drank so much I blew my cool / And now they’re closing up a world I’m living in / So I guess it’s time to go or at least they told me so / Yes I’m going home, it’s motel time again / Motel time again guess I take my head to bed / I don’t even know or care what town I’m in / Yet I’ll find my way once more to that old number on the door / Then I’ll be at home, it’s motel time again (Bobby Bare Jr.)

    When everything feels like it’s closing in on you, closing up the world as you say, a small light should still burn somewhere, keep looking ahead

    A litlle flame will be going on burning and one day a big fire will start again and crackle with joy.

      All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

    Film noir.
    Die Magie des Schwarz, das Licht in der Dunkelheit und die Attraktion des Nicht-Sichtbaren.
    It’s movie time.

    Gruß, Uwe

    kind of a disturbing picture, my dear, was it in a motel? you look like you use film, and i DIG THAT ABOUT YOU :)

    • Fritsch sagt:

      It’s the digital darkness, my dear in some small village cinema where time seems to stand still. So let’s get together & lighten up the night, sweetheart.

      All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

    What if not the closing of temporary worlds would make us to cling to creating?

    Motel time–a box with a bed in it. It will never be home and it usually makes something like a drink to make it mellow. :)

    • Fritsch sagt:

      And it ain’t it always those plays of darks & lights that keep us up at night & admiring the place we’re stuck in. Thanks, Geert!

      All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

    wunderbar, lieber Florian, gerade gestern sah ich Metropolis von Fritz Lang, das ist der Stoff woraus die Schwarzweißfotografie auch besteht …

    herzliche Grüße von der See in die Hauptstadt

    As wonderful as simple! Hotels seem to be a strong source of inspiration for you, Florian. These lamps are markers and beacons on your trips. And I can understand why when you manage so well to capture the light.
