” A War Of Generations ” by tgchan ( Sony A6500 + Sony Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 )

” You cannot stop time… No matter how rich and powerful you are, you just can’t. Generations after generations, they all fight for their own survival. This is how it goes, this is how it was from the very beginning. There are no permanent things. Some last longer while other shorter, but in the end… everything must perish eventually. The fight between generations doesn’t necessarily always have to end in the disappearance of the fallen one. Sometimes they can even coexist in a nice and civilised manner. Every generation has got its own prime time which is eventually replaced with another one, and another one, and so on. Some generations are so tough and resilient, they can withstand almost anything and still coexist with the next following ones. Games, films, cinema, television, internet, consoles, CDs, DVDs, smartphones and so much more, none of it could take books out. They have been around for so long that I don’t think they will ever go away… What is their secret? How come they have survived for so long? Even despite highly digitalised world, they still got masses of admirers. Could it be simplicity? Perhaps… or maybe it is something else. Probably a mixture of things like; nostalgia, simplicity, portability, convenience, deep engagement and many more. Books are simply magical… It is mind-blowing that a piece of paper and some letters stuck together have the power to take you to another reality. Even though I prefer different type of entertainment, I have a mad respect for them. Hopefully this generation will perish as the last one, just for the sake of an ultimate resilience.”

” True Enlightenment ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + Samyang 8mm F3.5 Fisheye CS II )

( Pozdrawiam oraz dziekuje przemilym Paniom, ktore pozwolily mnie sie wiercic z aparatem w ich sklepie :* )

” I am so jealous of those who got enlightened… I am so full of envy for the ones who know where to go… Oh, what a feeling must it be… How amazing must it feel to know you can focus all your energy to pursuit your destiny, instead of wasting it for countless searches… How incredible it must be to run as fast as you can, looking only forward, without peripheral thoughts of better alternatives… How marvellous it must be to wake up every day, and know you can do things that will eventually bring you closer to your final goal… How soothing it must be… to have thousands of lights guiding you through the darkness of night… How convenient it must be to know you are on the right path… The awareness that all it takes from now on… is just energy to move forward, towards the great award. I can see thousands of light bulbs shining… Unfortunately none of them are bright enough, to clearly let me know they are the one I should follow… How can I trust any of them, when the light they produce is so weak and dim, I could easily mistake it for my own troubled and hungry imagination…? I keep looking at all of them at once, persistently waiting for one that will go so bright, I will not have any doubt. At the same time I am shaking and praying that the one I am waiting for, is not behind my back… “

” Got Light ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + Samyang 8mm F3.5 Fisheye CS II )

( Pozdrawiam oraz dziekuje przemilym Paniom, ktore pozwolily mnie sie wiercic z aparatem w ich sklepie :* )

” Got light? Sure thing, bro. But I am still kind of lost and can’t see… I wonder how much light we really need in our lives in order to clearly see where we are heading… Obviously one source is not enough, but what if there is so much light, you cannot see anything beside it? What if it’s still not enough to see in the darkness of destiny…? Do we need one big source of it, or maybe plenty of them but smaller ones where each one of them partially gives hints and completes the full picture in front of our eyes? We walk and turn on more and more lights to better see our path. Sometimes they give light full of bright directions, but sometimes it is very vague and dim, giving nothing but a an outline of what we need. So you keep walking and looking for the new lights with a great hope that the next one will be so bright, that you will be able to finally start running with your life. Stop crawling, stand up and dash like a wind full confidence of what’s ahead of you, taking everything you have been striving for along the way. Are you the light I have been looking for? If so… why the hell am I still feeling like I am surrounded by darkness that’s constraining my movement? It creeps from behind, left side, right side, lurking in shadows of doubt and unknown… Where are you…? I need you… I need your light to show me the path, so I can finally start running… “

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

” There are moments in life when you just have to stop… The big red light lights up and yells at you STOP YOU DUMB FUCK~! you’ve had enough. Sometimes we just can’t go forward any more, no matter how bad we want it… It is so hard to do anything when everything stands in your way. I often wonder if it’s the life letting me know I should stop, resign and focus on something else, or maybe… it doesn’t want me to reach my goal, because there is a big reward at the end of the troublesome lane I have chosen… Confusion… so much of it… So what should I do? Trust my own thoughts or go against them? Are they trying to help me or pull me down…? I can see the light but I am not sure what to do with it… I do not want to turn nor reverse, but I know… that if I will wait too long… someone will bump me, and force me to go forward against my will. Am I seeing my own red light here… or is it someone else’s reflecting in my eyes? So long in one spot, so much time wasted, the inevitable is close. My mind slowly corrodes, rust away leaving another hole… I look around in search of a direction, but the gloom around me is the only thing I can see, it gets to me. I can feel its cold claws climbing on my back and slowly getting around my neck, gently squeezing… letting me know and reminding… that my life is not my own, and it belongs to darkness. So here I am, the big red light right in my face, waiting for my move… the decision I have no idea about. It feels like the road I have known so well, ended at some point a while ago. I have wandered for some time now… it is pointless looking for the way back home, it’s gone. Do I even want to go back? Could I… ? Another STOP in my life… it’s different this time. I do not know the crossroads. Turn or Reverse… ? Why the fuck am I not seeing what’s ahead of me~!? I WANT THE THE THIRD OPTION. I am tired of reversing, I’ve got enough of turns~!!! I want a straight path to happiness, do you hear me~!? … What… ? There isn’t one for me… ? Oh well… I will leave the car here then… and check what’s inside of this dark forest that’s smiling at me…. “

I love them all bloody hell!@ Look… yellow reminds me of a lemon. Light blue reminds me of the beautiful sky. Red reminds me of tomatoes and blood. Orange reminds me of… hmm an orange I guess. Green reminds me of nature and grass. Pink reminds me of vagina, salmon and girls. Soft yellow reminds me of puke and walls. Bright red reminds me of brake lights. Dark purple reminds me of beetroots and aubergines. Bright green reminds me of the Predator’s blood. Dark green reminds me of old algae. Bright blue reminds me of pastels and the most bluish and amazing sky I can imagine. Dark blue reminds me of night, scary deep ocean and coldness. Bright pink reminds me of young girls. Brown reminds me of pooh, cocoa and chocolate. Bright orange reminds me of the bright-coloured waistcoats of the workers at the roads, not sure if they actually wear that colour though. Black reminds me of a raven, coal, and metal. Bright yellow reminds me of Xenomorph’s blood and glow sticks. There is something you love and hate about every colour I guess. I really like them all for different reasons. “
