If I Could Grow Some Wings by DpressedSoul If I Could Grow Some Wings by DpressedSoul
Close your eyes, it's fine
By saying it's not real
There's no reason to forgive myself
No matter what it seems
And if I could grow some wings
I'd fly away home

(Antimatter, Angelic)

Marktplatz, Lübeck (Germany).

I like the two layers in this photo! The one outside, the "reality" of the photograph and the one reflected inside the glass! The reflected one is what gives a "narrative", a meaning to the picture, but it is actually just a "reflection" of reality! It's just a fake, inaccessible reality... It's like an "idol", or a dream.. Its just an inaccessible version of reality, that somehow has more meaning than the reality itself.
On the other hand, the whole photograph as an item, is also a "reflection" of reality.. So the image then acquires a third layer, that of the reality of the viewer.

So "Semiotically" is a very interesting work!

I know, I'm over analyzing it, but.. never mind, that's how I understand it! :)
What do you think?

Sie weilte zu der Zeit gerade nicht in Lübeck. Außerdem befand sich auf dem Marktplatz keine geeignete Telefonzelle. ;)

Good lord what an amazing atmosphere, ease comes to my mind as well as seriousness, quiet controversy! You have quite a good eye and I enjoyed watching your works past months a lot, gave me a lot of good moments to wonder and to ponder, thanks a lot :)

Always a pleasure to read your comments, Martin. I agree, that this picture can be seen in more ways, like *xristospn wrote in his critique: it's multi-layered. :)

Thank you very much!

Was nützt die Liebe in Gedanken? // Kommt die Gelegenheit, dann kannst du's nicht.

"Liebe" könnte ich hier durch beliebige andere (Wunsch-)Begriffe ersetzen. Die Gedanken freizulassen und zu träumen ist eine Sache, die daraus resultierenden Tiefschläge in der Realität zu verkraften eine andere.

Mir gefiel auch der fast surreale Kontrast zwischen der modernen Kaufhausfassade und den fast Disneyland-artigen Türmchen des Rathauses, die sich darin gespiegelt haben. Vielen Dank, Horst! :bow:
