” Industrial Beauty ” by tgchan ( Sony A6500 + Sony Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 )

” It is one of those pieces… One of those pieces that nobody understands… Hesitation… should I delete it and move on looking for something more popularly likeable? No Chan, you shouldn’t. Trust your instinct. You were browsing photographs and something clicked right away when you saw it for the first time. That’s pure, something real, genuine beauty in its raw form. Keep it. So I did. It’s really hard to explain what I love about it without giving my own eyes and mind to someone else to experience it my way. Though I shall do my best and try to explain it. Let’s start with the major things first. Light and shade, both living in mutual respect, both perfectly completing each other. There is a beautiful bright and happy sky on the upper part, there is also not so happy darker shaded area at the bottom. They give this balanced and complete look of it. You also cannot not notice those four beautiful chrome chimneys… All shiny and glittering in the sun. An amazing reflection of them on the nearby wall, awesome green grass at the bottom left corner, billowy clouds above, branches… There is so much going on, so many things to look at… It’s cosy… It’s one of those special places. I call them ‘magical spots’. You just want to stand there and enjoy everything that surrounds you. It makes you so happy, full of appreciation and energy to live. It is also very hard to capture it. I keep looking at it, and I can’t believe I almost deleted it… I love it so much. Those colours and tint… Everything just ads up to itself creating this Industrial Beauty. Things like that gets me going another hours, days, weeks worth of pure walking… Just to find another one of those magical spots… “

” Fluff ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + HD Pentax-DA 35mm F2.8 Limited Macro )

” Fluff… without it, the sky looks like an unfinished painting, boring and unnatural. It may sound funny, but it is unbelievably hard to incorporate those billowy bastards into your photography. They are unpredictable, they appear exactly when you are all tied up with work, and you can’t travel anywhere to capture them. They also don’t last for too long. What you cannot see here, is the totally dark area on the left side of the photograph. Approximately after fifteen minutes… the sky was gone, devoured by black and grey storm clouds. I am trying to forecast when they will appear, and plan my journeys accordingly, but even with a knowledge not shy from the one of a meteorologist, I have found no lack in doing so. They don’t only look brilliant, they also naturally diffuse rays of sunshine, creating a magical haze, making everything look so much nicer. To sum it all up, clouds are cool, but… Like with everything in life, the balance is the most important thing, it’s also the hardest to achieve. Sky will not look amazing, if it’s completely covered in clouds, nor without a single one. So yes, if you see a beautiful blue sky, covered with white billowy bastards I am always looking for, take a moment and cherish it, because somewhere around the globe, I am chasing them without luck. “

” Grounded ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + HD Pentax-DA 35mm F2.8 Limited Macro )

” Beauty and the Beast, king of the sky, fearless conqueror of the whitest clouds… Forever grounded, revoked, left behind… Looking proudly, far above, reminiscing about the old days of glory and love. Living in past, choking back tears while looking at youngsters jetting around, poor soul… It would give everything just to feel refreshing breeze in its nose again, one touch of the white billowy clouds, one last dive before everything goes dark… In vain, dreaming about the things that cause unbearable pain. It’s better not to think about it, forget, focus on the new things, it could have been much worse… At least, you can still look at the blue sky, not like those poor souls locked in hangars and museums, stripped from wings and engines. Cherish the moment, forget about the painful past, look in the future and see the stars. ”

” A Happy Place ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + HD Pentax-DA 35mm F2.8 Limited Macro )

” A refreshing and gentle breeze, pushing me around from every direction, like it want something from me… Warm sun rays, stroking my face, soothing all my existing worries, making them disappear… The ambient sounds of children playing, birds chirping and leaves rustle… I am bewitched by the surrounding beauty… I look at the sky… and I see, white as snow… cloud dragons chasing each other and fooling around… Not so far away, there is this very tall and thin gentleman standing, with his rusty coat and a funny looking flat hat… I think, he also enjoys this calm and peaceful fable land. Perhaps, I should go down this path and see what lies ahead of me, maybe there is more… Would you like to go with me? OK, grab my hand, let’s go! “

” Cloud Ticklers ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + HD Pentax-DA 35mm F2.8 Limited Macro )

” Boy oh boy… Does everything look so freaking amazing from above? Is it because we do not experience it from down below? I do not know… but sure as hell it looks great! Same old, boring places, now look like a new and undiscovered realm of magic, awaiting to be explored and conquered. From this point of view, you can make it, what you want it to be… Dragons, elves, castles in clouds, enchanted forests with unseen creatures hiding within or perhaps a futuristic city, where cars are gliding and hovering above the ground… The choice is yours, close your eyes for a second, take a deep breath and create your own reality. Lie yourself for a moment, mix what you see with what you cannot, adding things you would love to see in the blank spaces. How would your city look like? Maybe, once you come back down… it will look like you have imagined it… “

” Speedy ET ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” Speedy little ET hurtles along the railway tracks, dragging the never ending cargo loads. Faster than wind, stronger than ox… he never thinks about any stops. No time for him to look around, he has to ignore all beautiful things he’s passing by. Interesting dark clouds, buildings, trees, flyovers, cars, roads, factories… no time for all that… when you are speeding like a wild cat! “

” Crawling Mist ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” An early cold winter morning with the sun still hanging low. White billowy clouds illuminated by golden rays of sunshine, starts to conquer the blue sky. Milky mist slowly fading away from meadows, crawls back to forests… revealing the frozen soil and naked tress behind. Soon the whole sky will be covered in dark grey clouds, enjoy this brief moment of colourful picturesque display before it will be gone… “

” Scratch ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” A wide river, calmly flowing at its own pace… The giant needle scratching and cutting its smooth surface like an old rusty scalpel, leaving the self healing scar behind… With teeth clenched to suppress a moan, it keeps going… ignoring the pain. A body that can’t be harmed, the body that can’t be stopped… “
