POINT BLANK: “I’VE GOT YOU UNDER MY SKIN”

“I’ve got you under my skin
I have got you, deep in the heart of me
So deep in my heart that you’re really a part of me
I’ve got you under my skin”

(Frank Sinatra)

Thanks to Chris and his NATIVE RITUALS Tattoo Studio in Hattingen!

POINT BLANK: inside ‘PROLETARKA’

During the epoch of industrialization in the second half of the 19th century, the idea of the ‘micro-cities’ embedded in Russia’s big cities was born. Those ‘micro-cities’ should provide all the comfort and facilities like living space, shops, schools, medical supplies, churches and a short way to work, for the workers of factories and their families. At that time the idea and realization was regarded as modern and innovative. Those places still exists, like you see here on the example of ‘PROLETARKA’ in Tver/Russia. There are still people living in, but the factories are closed down and the condition of the buildings are in need of renovation.

Thanks to Peggy/PERALO for the information.

POINT BLANK: DANCE ME TO THE END OF LOVE

“Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love ”

(Leonard Cohen, ‘Dance me to the end of Love’ )

POINT BLANK: TRAIN WINDOW

“I lie down on many a station platform; I stand before many a soup kitchen; I squat on many a bench;–then at last the landscape becomes disturbing, mysterious, and familiar. It glides past the western windows with its villages, their thatched roofs like caps, pulled over the white-washed, half-timbered houses, its corn-fields, gleaming like mother-of-pearl in the slanting light, its orchards, its barns and old lime trees.”

Erich Maria Remarque

 

POINT BLANK: LOOK AT THAT

..do you know that? Following some occasions just by chance to capture landscapes, architecture, abstract motives…  …that’s fine and that’s fun…  …maybe with some great results.

…and then you get reminded by a photo series here on WP about that, what you really want to do. To study people! To look at their behaviors. About their natural conduct. – After Andrea’s post BETRACHTUNGEN I was so inspired to search exactly for that.

Thank you for your inspiration!
