Forgotten Hopes by DpressedSoul Forgotten Hopes by DpressedSoul
Did I punish you for dreaming?
Did I break your heart and leave you crying?
Do you ever dream of escaping?
Don't you ever dream of escaping...

(Anathema, Forgotten Hopes)

Barbed-wire and weed dancing on top of a prison wall.
"Elwe", Leipziger Straße, Kassel (Germany).
From a photowalk with *Filterkaffee, *Niophee and *HorstSchmier.

Selective perception maybe. Nobody wants to forget about their hopes, I suppose.

hehe..what a "coincidence". Actually I have not read the title because of the selective perception or I could simply say I forgot to read the "forgotten".

...will bring another day. And by the end of the day you will see that it was just as dull and grey like every day before. And then you will finally realize that you already gave up dreaming ages ago, and that your forgotten hopes have turned into a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Belated best wishes for your Birthday!

I'm 33...and I've experienced way too much in the last ten years not to think this way. There's a certain yearning for missed opportunities or wasted chances, maybe wasted time, lingering on my mind and it constantly weighs me down. I wouldn't go so far to call myself a pessimist anymore, since I never really gave up fighting against these thoughts. But my reality keeps telling me something different.

No, I haven't even heard of it, but I can relate to it even after reading this short summary. In which way did this novel speak to you?

A friend of mine offered me the book, I found it terrible. Now I'm not sure I would relate to this novel. Maybe I'm no more waiting....

Eines deiner interessantesten Fotos, die du seit längerem gemacht hast. Es gefällt mir wirklich sehr, wie die Verbindung zwischen dem harten Metall(Schaffungen der Menschheit?) und den zarten Pflanzen(die Stellung der Natur?), die bereits dunkel verblassen und von der grauen Wand bedrängt werden, eingespannt zwischen den spitzen (und aggressiven) Dornen, des Stacheldrahtes. Des Weiteren gleicht das Konstrukt aus Metall ein wenig einem pflanzlichen Konstrukt, welches das alte, lebendige Konstrukt ablöst.
Ich hoffe du kannst was mit meinen Gedanken anfangen, die ich bei diesem Bild hatte und nun niederschrieb.
Gruß.

Vielen Dank für Deine sehr interessante Interpretation, Marvin. In der Tat fand auch ich diese Verbindung von organischen und anorganischen Strukturen sehr spannend, fast intim. Sie erinnerten mich an tanzende Paare.

Da gibt es nichts zu danken, dafür sind kreative Schaffungen da; Kritik und Interpretationen schaffen dem Bild einen tiefergreifenden Sinn.
