House a Home

Here ya are, at the top of the tower
Could a body take that much
Alone through every waking hour
Asleep without nobody to touch

Here ya are, cryin’ in the night
Could a body take that much
Find yourself standin’ outside
You ain’t got nobody to touch

– Mark Lanegan

    Pretty different style of work from you. No less effective in its impact, though.

    • Yeah, pretty much a case of where it takes me, I suppose. Thanks, James.

    Nobody to touch but the drugs still working. And the most desirable drug is drowning in that great sea of frames of yours, Jean-Pierre. The lonesomeness is overwhelming & your grain sends shivers down my spine. Truly, brother! And yes, a body can take that much. And even much more.

    All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

    • Man, how do you connect the lyrics so effortlessly, it really is quite amazing! And I love these…
      It brings so much warmth to my weary heart hearing you say all these wonderful things, thanks brother, really, it means so much.

    • And there I was, quietly walking along, and there they where!
      Thanks, Karen.

  5. JP – these are beautiful. I like your treatment of the images – their graininess and size relativity. There’s something more complex behind these images, I feel, though a simplicity to also be enjoyed at first glance. As usual, I am intrigued by your work and really enjoy that.

    • Yes, that’s very true, I suppose there is something behind these images, and there is no helping these things colouring your vision…Thanks again for the warm and insightful comments, Marina, I really do appreciate it tremendously.

  6. Excellent pictures, JP, really very well done – maybe a new look from you, and I like it very, very much! All three pictures smack me in the eye – I love the mood and the grain >>> and I’m going to try reblogging this – hope it works!!!

    The words are powerful too – but I have a feeling of where you’re coming from – and I hope you’re OK.

    Take care, my friend.

    Although we’ve never met, cameravagrant is a good friend of mine, from quite early on in my blogging. He does really attractive and often quite heavily emotional stuff – images and words – and I hope you’ll like what he’s serving up here – and have a look at his site too! FATman
