Sky is wide

If we could walk through the skyscapes, leaving our penthouse! Photo by frizztext, click on the picture to enter his flickr galleries.

Comments by readers: “A walk in the clouds” – fantastic! (by Claudio in Argentina); “It would be awesome!” (NaPix from Vietnam); “Hard to believe the photo actually was taken in Berlin and not say, on the Alps” (by David Mor, Jerusalem); “Cool view of being up with the Angels!” (by “God is in us all” / Chris Wehner, West Virginia, USA). Frizztext-comment: But I wasn’t up with the Angels! Trying to get the brightest light behind the top window of the penthouse on the opposite side of our Karl-Marx-Allee in East-Berlin I didn’t see the baby chair next to my feet and fell down and cried. “Are you hurt?” my daughter asked. “Yes I’ve got some knee-pain now on the left – nevertheless, my mind took my body for some minutes and we walked through the clouds!” At least my Canon pocket got another Berlin document: The sky is wide and high over Berlin. The ground is often dark and unseen. We have a German children’s book STRUWWELPETER (by Heinrich Hoffmann 1845) about a boy named “Hans-Guck-in-die-Luft” / “Johnny Head-in-Air”: His eyes followed the swallows in the clouds – and he fell into the river where the fishes said “Hello”! Hello, Frizz “Eyes-in-the-clouds”!

  1. This reminds me of some of the Batman movies. Gorgeous!


  2. A very beautiful photo. It makes me want to fly and sore into the sunset. Very inspirational and peaceful. Thanks for sharing.

    Fantastic photo! If you are Frizz Eyes-in-the-clouds, then I am “The story of the flying Cassie” (Der fliegende Robert). I could have sworn, that the wind took me a little bit off the ground when I was a kid, being out in a storm with an umbrella (but maybe it was just my imagination. That the wind took me, not that I was out in the storm :-D)! I was so scarred, because my granny used to read the stories of Heinrich Hoffmann, so I knew what could happen to little children with big umbrellas in the storm…


  4. The sky has a bit of an ominous feel, yet the clouds seem playful to me – like you can dance with the clouds right into the sunset!


  5. Gorgeous shot! Seems deceptively safe to step out on to those pillowy clouds! I imagine I will not be returning the fishes greeting if I do 🙂

    Beautiful sky. So you really had your head in the clouds when you took this photo. Hope your knee is okay. 🙂


  7. That’s stunning, Frizz! Almost feels like ‘floating’!
    I hope your leg is feeling better now, though!


  8. Such dramatic skies!


Hearing from you makes my day!
