Listening to Chet Baker while viewing these images is divine. A perfect music selection for this post. Love the photos. The sense of the forgotten and abandonment is present but there is hope, and life in these images – even if it’s just the stories they have to tell.

I’m so glad to hear that you liked the music selection for this set, as I couldn’t decide, and then, by some random set of circumstances I happened upon Chet. Also, thanks for the insightful & positive comments you made about the images, it really is much appreciated.

Great set! Love the last one, especially. Keep it going man, good luck!

Oh yes, always on the roll. Thanks, brother!

I love it, the texture of life in full on black and white.

Awesome compliment, thanks Karen!

I love the one of the sky! Amazing. 😀

To add the great Chet Baker to your amazing & conematic frames is mindblowing, Jean-Pierre. I look at them gems of yours in the middle of nowhere some hotel room in southern Germany. And I must confess: Nowhereville is something felt. Deeply felt.
All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

That is the best compliment you can possibly offer, that you can ‘feel’ them…Thanks so much, brother.

I really like this selection..dark, brooding, dusty and a little wild..
March 28, 2012 at 6:46 pm
Very cool compliment, thanks so much. And yes, these are born in a dusty, and slightly wild place…

Moody, a tad melancholy and my kind of photography.
March 30, 2012 at 3:00 pm
Glad you liked them! And yes, you’re right I suppose, they are a tad melancholic & moody…What can I say, also my kind of photography, LOL.
March 30, 2012 at 8:55 pm
Yes, all masterpieces.
Eugene Atget, the best photographer of all time, would approve.
March 31, 2012 at 2:33 pm
Ah yes, the master. Well, I would like to think that he would have approved…of me bringing him his tea! LOL. Thanks again brother, I really do appreciate the kind comments immensely.

Oh you’ve got some good stuff here, JP! The second one down, with the clouds and contrail – those lit clouds could so easily by flaring flames that the aircraft, pheonix-like, is soaring above. And I like V F Cursi too – the sign (if that’s what it is) goes so well with the overhanging boughs, and all the leaf litter in the foreground, and its in exactly the right place in the frame.
But maybe the most striking one is the bottom one – the open magasine on the bench – and most of all that tentacle-like or triffid-like, very sharp shadow, advancing across the ground and climbing (crawling???) up onto the seat – wow! Good stuff, my friend! Adrian
