” 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.

” 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. “

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

” It is funny how people stick together. There is so much space, yet they choose to live next to each other. Of course it is more convenient and practical, but the truth is, almost nobody wants to live alone. We like the presence of the fellow species around us. We don’t have to like them, nor interact with them. The mere idea of knowing, that they are living somewhere nearby, is very comforting for us. We settle, live and create the world around us. Plain grounds, stop being flat and monotonous, we change things, adjust them to our needs. After a while, beautiful towns, cities and villages, emerge from the mutual symbiosis. I just wish, we could learn how to live in a better harmony with nature. After all, we are only tenants… and one day, we might get kicked out of here, if we do not learn how to behave and respect our great landlord… “

” 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. ”

” 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… “

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

” Foaming dark blue and white sky, flowing like a mad river… Right beneath it, a swarm of human civilization pushing the nature out of its own place. I stand there, on the tenth floor and look at the city from above… It looks like a tiny part of a snow globe… who is shaking the toy though? We cover, once green fields of greenery, with synthetic structures of our own… spreading like a bad disease. What is the purpose of human race? Are we really the parasites of this planet? Who programmed us and why? Are we some kind of an experiment that rapidly spun out of control? Or maybe… we are doing exactly what we were supposed to do? Controlled, like mindless puppets… “

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

” Just look at it… doesn’t it remind a tiny part of a forest? So many lives, in such close distance. The old buildings deteriorate slowly, decompose, while the new ones, spring up like mushrooms after rain. Everyone is doing their little work, everyone has a purpose and special assignments in this crazy, new, synthetic ecosystem. Just like plants, animals and microbes, we are creating our own community of living organisms. We are not different from any of this, just as bacteria has its role and place on this planet, so do we… Can’t you really see the pattern in all this? We are not, who we think we are… We are just another cog in the system and we live solely, to complete the necessary cycle of a greater mechanism… There’s nothing more to our existence… We are not special, we are not unique, and surely… we are not in control. “

” 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. “

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

” This is the view from a local government building, from the ladies’ room to be exact… I know, I felt quiet awkward as well, but I had a good reason to be there; there were no bloody windows in the men’s room! Can you imagine it!? and they say that women are discriminated… pff… ridiculous. Anyway, I have spent a good while to find anything with windows, that wasn’t fronted on another part of the building. I am glad I have founded it, otherwise you wouldn’t be looking at this beautiful piece of colourful and cheerful scenery, would you now? I know that you love it and I have a good news for you, more is coming… “

” One Eyed Cloud Maker ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” Early in the morning One Eyed Cloud Maker slowly glides over its smooth railways… Huffing and puffing it coughs up the dark smoke into a blue sky. Even with only one good eye, this brave little puffer train still keeps its track. With face tremendously focused on its job, it quietly pulls blue wagons through soundly sleeping neighbourhoods. White frost on ground and purple hazy clouds lazily floating above, waiting for the sun to wake up… and finally come up. ”
