” Groups Of Understanding ” by tgchan ( Sony A6500 + Sony Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 )

A group of people here. A group of people there. You can rarely see somebody alone. And even if you do, there is a great chance they are just going to meet somebody. People are definitely not meant to live alone. So what gives that some people can’t imagine life without bunch of random friends around them whilst others can’t imagine being amongst almost anyone? I believe it is a matter of personality and its complexity. People without the greater depth are more likely to find someone similar to them than people whose nature is rather complex. If you are not on the same page as others, there is a good chance you will not be liked or enjoy the company of those people, probably both. Being alone is not a fate though. It is a choice you make. Of course some people have it much harder to find somebody similar to themselves, if they live in a small town or village for example. It is a matter of time and determination though, so if you really want to find some friend with whom you could share your weirdness, don’t lose hope; it is by all means possible. So going further down this road I’ve tried to answer my own question: why am I alone? I’ve come to a conclusion there is no single reason behind it, rather a combination of a few. The biggest one would be; it’s my choice. My complexity is beyond a chance to find anyone on the same page. The best case scenario for me is to find someone in the same book. My requirements and expectations are similar to my dreams, they’re almost unreal to reach. I don’t even clearly remember how it feels to be around a bunch of good friends any more. I used to have that in the time of my childhood and it was great, but… There’s just too much going on in my head right now, I wouldn’t be able to focus. So yea… it is my choice. It is nice to know there are people who would take their time and try to understand me though, I know they’re out there. Thank you for being and sorry for my isolation.

” Spiky Greens ” by tgchan ( Sony A6500 + Sony Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 )

I always knew… I have always known what I want in life… I was sure and confident about it as well… I don’t know what happened, I mean I know… but it is too hard for me to believe it. It scares me because I know it’s true, and I don’t know the way out of it now… I have set myself on the path that was not designed for me at all… I have triggered the bomb, and I don’t know how to stop the countdown. Piece by piece, life is stripping me of what I have known… Leaving me with nothing but darkness and chaos in my mind. I don’t know what I want any more, what is even worse; I feel like the things I have always loved doing are leaving me as well… All my pillars of existence are crumbling underneath the weight of emptiness. I just don’t know any more… I feel like those spiky greens shivering and trembling in the wind, unconsciously waiting to be finally knock down from their highest point in life…

” 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… “

” Come Out Come Out ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-FA 31mm F1.8 AL Limited )

” Come out, Come out… wherever you are… You can’t hide forever. It is a matter of time when the real you will take control, step out of the shade, come to light, show true colours. You can’t be perfect, not for a longer while. The cracks will start showing up, you’ll break, fall apart. No matter how hard you try, you just can’t be the best version of yourself for too long. It doesn’t matter for who and why… you just can’t. The legend says, you can leave your old you, and become a totally different person in a matter of seconds. The art of personality switch is a long time forgotten skill. You can become whoever you want, do whatever you want, and have whatever you want. You can leave imperfect yourself behind, become someone you have always dreamt of being. Do things you have always been afraid of doing, and finally reach for the things that were out of your reach before. It is not permanent, you can’t stay in that state forever. It’s exhausting and tiring. Is it worth it? Are you determined hard enough? Are you ready to become someone who is not you, in order to get what you want from life? The legends says, if you reach the highest level of mastering the art of personality switch, you can do it whenever you want, and last in the new form… for as long as you need it. It also says, there is a risk of irreversibly damaging and altering your old self. Random unwanted personality switches may occur, without the crucial element of leaving the old mind behind, you may find yourself internally torn apart, wanting two different things most of the time. Eventually you will become demented, living two different lives in one body, eternally split between what you want, and what you can’t… Forever shattered, beyond the point of repair… “

” Faceless ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-FA 77mm F1.8 Limited )

” Faceless Angels walking down the face of earth… like a wind, passing transparently between souls lost and broken. They judge, analyse, take and give. You may never know when you meet one of those wretched creations, once of a heavenly descent. Ruined, knocked off, shattered, disgraced… and finally cast away. Forever trapped between the worlds of eternal flame and clouds, unwanted… thrown away. Evermore imprisoned in wander without a destination. Enslaved in order to do things no other great being wish to do. Pulling down those who ascent way to fast, giving a boost to those of critical need. All this and many more demeaning deeds, constantly surrounded by ever rotting flesh, dirt and filth of mankind that multiplies like a disease. The face that haunts, the hands that scrape and the mossy breath… insides filled with nothing, programmed for indifference and apathy, perpetually impassive. It’s not here to help you, it’s not there to hinder… It’s not your friend nor the enemy… Balance, it’s the only thing of its interest. My Fair Stone Wingless Lady, have you finally come to raise me… or you’re here to crush me, and put me out of my misery… “

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

” Yet another human invention that is based on something that nature had done million… if not billion years ago. We are getting quite good at copying the master, but still… we have a long long way ahead of us, before we reach this level of advancement. I mean, just look at it… non-toxic, compact, recyclable, efficient, adaptable great looking and multi-purpose machine, that not only utilises waste, but also produces the life giving products… how can we ever match that superb kind of technology. It feels like the nature has scattered all her greatest blueprints around us, in hope that one day, we will be able to notice them and make use of it. The more I think about it, the more I am afraid of our ignorance. Did the nature let us play in her backyard with our primitive toys, just to learn and look up to her creations? Are we up to the task? Will we ever get smart enough to significantly replicate her steps? How much time have we got, before she will throw us out for wasting her time and resources? Heh… little green leaves that nobody sees, flapping in the wind… Still far superior and more advanced than anything we have ever created… “

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

” After deleting dozens of potential photographs, I have realised how hard it is to find and capture something special. Not that I didn’t know about it, but this time… it hit me really hard. I had deleted more than two hundred files before I found something I could start working with. Wrong angle, too dark, too bright, too low, too high, blurry subject, boring subject etc. Even if everything else is good, sometimes you just cannot get that magic out of it. That something special you have experienced in person, at that particular moment, it is just not there anymore. I can’t say I have wasted my time and money though, I really enjoy my journeys. I am just a little sad, that after so many hours and kilometres, I came back home empty-handed. I should probably stop worrying about the past, unless I have a time machine. I am truly glad, that this green curtain was still there to save my evening, I was really losing my last bits of hope. I would love to go out and hunt for some more treasure, but the current weather is just plain wrong. It supposed to be winter now, but it looks like we have a dark, muddy and gloomy autumn instead. Oh well, I can still enjoy a beautiful sunny weather through my window, with a green leafy curtain… “

” Power ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + Samyang 10mm F2.8 )

” Just look at this powerful and mighty river, with a current so strong, it can move mountains! What? You do not see it? What do you mean it’s not!? OK! OK! ok… let me explain this to you. You can see the water right? Good. What you can’t see is, its sheer will of flowing and moving forward. They had to make a space for it in a middle of a city, because if they didn’t, it would still find it’s own way. You can learn so much from it, just think. If you will ever find yourself in place or situation where you will feel helpless and lost, think what would water do. If it ever stops, it’s only to find another way and even if it will take years to get through impossible; it doesn’t really matter, because at the end, it will still win with every possible obstacle on its way. This is how you should proceed on your way of reaching your dreams, learn from nature and you will find your answers. “

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

” The old trees brandish with their branches in great anger. It looks like the two forests have picked another quarrel with each other… What might have caused such outbursts of rage and violence? Are they fighting for the territory? Do they really intend to hurt each other? I think someone should tell them to stop it right away and enjoy the beautiful golden night instead… “
