” Dunno One ” by tgchan ( Sony A6500 + Sony Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 )

There are so many artists… Even more people with all sorts of talents… It scares me… It scares me that there are so many amazing individuals the world does not know about? Why? Why do they have to live a life of an unknown? Why some people, very often less talented, climb the ladder of success while the rest, more deserved of that place, have to live a lesser life? It looks like having a talent and knowing about it is just not enough to be out there. You have to make yourself visible. You can’t be famous or even appreciated if the world doesn’t know about your existence. Death is the last scream your personality makes before it vanishes forever. I mean, even if you get all the ovations you can get, but you are still dead, what is it good for? You either make it on time, or it doesn’t matter… Unless you dream about some fame after your departure to another life. The one thing that scares me even more is not finding your real talent before it’s too late, or ever at all. I am genuinely scared of living my life the wrong way. ” Remember, the saddest thing in life is wasted talent. You could have all the talent in the world, but if you don’t do the right thing, then nothing happens. ” – A Bronx Tale (1993)

” Dragon Skin ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-F 50mm F2.8 Macro )

” Dragon Skin… Sometimes I think, the only way to stop life getting to you, is to grow dragon skin… So thick and so robust that even flaming hate and love could not get through it. This, or learn how to channel everything that’s harmful with such precision that nothing can really touch you. The latter is probably a better choice, but it’s much harder to achieve as well. Confusion and inability to understand morphs into hate… The skin starts glowing… No response and lack of caring changes hate into rage. The skin lights up… Past memories start bleeding once again. The skin is almost transparent, ready to burst with all might and fury… By the time everything spills over, you are all alone… there is no one there… not any more. It all disperses like a morning fog… All this building up, tension and accumulation of negativity, all for nothing… Waste of time and energy, pointless. Dragon skin would never let it happen. It’s too tough, way too smart to let such things glide through. Black tendons hold it all tight and secure. Glassy flesh will not let you see. Cold and solid, keeps secrets within its boundaries. You can spot life behind its fortification, bright and live, but you cannot get through… It’s way too scared, too fragile, and too soft to let anyone close again. It somehow wants to connect with you, lonely and hungry for another soul, but poor doesn’t know how to get through the very own wall, it once wanted so much to have around itself. Unfortunately trapped in its own shelter. It will take time, hard work and dedication on both sides, too finally free what has been buried so securely underneath dragon skin. Let’s just hope it will be worth the wait and struggle… “

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

” Somewhere deep in an unknown to me forest, there was this old wooden hut. I don’t normally wander in such places, but when I was driving to a another city, I couldn’t help noticing the beauty of the forests around me. I stopped the car and decided to venture a little bit into unknown. I thought only the new cities or towns were able to strike me with such awe and happiness. Boy or girl, how much I was mistaken. The air and the smell alone, were something magical, something I cannot describe with words. I felt like, I need to hug every single tree, stroke grass, cuddle with moss and sing with the birds, just to show my appreciation for everything that surrounds me. And there was this old wooden hut, it looked like nothing special when I was passing it by. When I took another look at it, I couldn’t believe what was hiding behind it. I asked myself what kind of sorcery is this, how is this even possible!? I approached it and it looked even better up close. It looked like the nature stretched her canvas on the back of the hut’s wall years ago, and has been painting there secretly ever since… An enigmatic mixture of snow, rain, frost, wind, sun, wood, heat and time… entrapped in this truly remarkable work of art. “

” Walking In The Night ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + SMC Pentax-DA 50mm F1.8 )

” A beautiful nymph, silently walking through the black night. The bright moon shines upon her young body, while her soft feet gently stroke sleeping grass. Even though the sun is far away, on the other side, the night is warm and cosy. She stepped on an old stump and leaned against the bent tree, her favourite place to be. She stands at the edge of the precipice and looks down at the glittering metropolis in distance… She knows it’s not her place and that the forest is her home, yet she can’t stop coming back here and watch the high technology existence far away. A delicate breeze brushes her long curly hair… she closes her eyes, and listens to ambient sounds of busy life… “
