Falling Through a World Unknown by DpressedSoul Falling Through a World Unknown by DpressedSoul
Is your heart still beating? Can you feel this at all?
This landslide will bury us all.
With the storm on your mind and the clouds in your eyes,
Will you survive?
Lie in wait, I will lie awake.
Falling through a world unknown.

(Neurosis, Falling Unknown)

Reflections...

"With the storm on your mind and the clouds in your eyes,
Will you survive?" (I always wonder that ! )

And then I read " I will lie awake."

Wow ! I dont know ... I cant put into words my feelings right now... my mind is in a state of turmoil (maybe) !

A couple have already mentioned that this photo perfectly captures the sensation of falling, and the sentiment of the song.
Again you have magically captured the essence of an amazing song into an entirely new creation.
The album that song comes from is so important to me that I have a tattoo representing it on my shoulder, and I am in the process of adding a tree to the design.
This connection is amazing :)
Thankyou for sharing your beautiful work. You continue to inspire and give hope that the world indeed has many wonders to still offer us all.

Thanks a lot for your comment, I'm very glad that you like it and that it speaks to you.

This song is amazing, isn't it? I'm totally in love with Neurosis' music as it often expresses exactly what I feel. My personal favourite album is "Souls at Zero" though. :)

Ich liebe das Spiel mit Reflexionen: obwohl statisch, scheint das Bild in Bewegung zu sein. Und Du hast Recht: die Äste scheinen den Himmel ergreifen zu wollen, als wollten sie ihren Fall aufhalten.

Genau - und so entsteht eine unaufhaltbare Symbolik, im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes... Hast du "Melancholia" von Lars v. Trier gesehen - wenn nicht, dann unbedingt anschauen!!! Einer der wunderbarsten Filme, den ich je sah - und voller Symbolik...

Ein traumhafter Film, und auch für mich einer der besten die ich bis jetzt gesehen habe. Zugleich eine Herausforderung sowohl für mich als Betroffenen (der ich mich über weite Strecken sehr gut in die Person der Justine hineinversetzen konnte) als auch für "unbeteiligte" Beobachter - ich habe selten erlebt, dass so viele Besucher das Kino vorzeitig verlassen haben.

Abgesehen von der anspruchsvollen Thematik und Symbolik ein sehr bildgewaltiges Werk mit exzellenten Darstellern.

Ja, es ist mein absoluter Favorit in meiner Filmsammlung! Ich habe weinen müssen, was mir ganz selten passiert... und die Fotografie ist einfach nur noch der Hammer, vor allem in den ersten Minuten...

Es ging mir ganz genauso, vor allem während der Szenen in denen Justines Krankheitssymptome deutlich zu Tage traten.

Die Eingangssequenz hat mich nach dem Kinobesuch mehrere Wochen in meinen Träumen begleitet. Ich war selten so sehr beeindruckt. Seine Gabe, mit Bildern Emotionen hervorzurufen ist äußerst bemerkenswert.

Du, mir gings genauso! Ich habe ständig von diesen Sequenzen geträumt. Und ich spürte bisweilen sogar eine subtile Todessehnsucht - es war unglaublich, fast posttraumatisch!!

Kann ich nachvollziehen. Nach Ende des Films war ich zunächst zwar sehr aufgewühlt, dieses Gefühl wich aber sehr bald einer seltsamen Ruhe und sehr großem Verständnis für die Person der Justine und ihre fast erleichterte Reaktion auf das bevorstehende Ende.

a strong mood and atmosphere in here, beautifully sad and thoughtful, those words about the falling through this unknow world whispering on while looking at your image, quite most touching and true, absolutly love it :)

It was one of those moments when you take a glimpse at something and instantly have this feeling that you have found something that you don't see everyday. It's just a simple reflection of a tree in the rear window of my car, but it gave me an impression of something "otherworldly" if that makes sense.

I'm very glad that you like it, Martin. Thanks a lot! :)

Thanks for your reply, Florian, this makes me think of meeting places and/or situations touching my heart and mind (without exactly knowing why), causing me to stop there and take a closer look.

It's overwhelming indeed, I just can't stop asking myself "how much longer until I hit the ground?"

Hehe, I had a feeling of déjà vu as well. Maybe it's because most of my fears are recurrent. :D
