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

” Nobody likes Sweet Spike… As a matter of fact, nobody liked him ever since he was born. He used to be quite a nice fellow, you know? Unfortunately his strange looks, weird diet and not so much fresh breath made him really unpopular. He’s genuinely desperate nowadays, he just flies around and tries to hug anyone… that can’t be good, can it? He used to be charming, really smart and with a good talk. Sadly enough, time changes everyone… and for poor Sweet Spike the change was not for the better… I mean, I don’t blame him, you know? How would you personally feel if everyone, without any exception, would hate you from the moment they meet you? Not nice, huh? And it wasn’t nice for Spike as well… All he ever wanted was to be just like others; nice, colourful, likeable, cute and things like that. Didn’t work out at all… He got beaten many times, with many different things; newspapers, towels, flip-flops, got electrocuted, sprayed with chemicals and so much more… It’s just painful, you know? Not just for the body, but for the soul as well… Poor Spike, I heard he got addicted to pooh again too. It is not his fault really? The freaking nature designed him like that, what can he do about it? Nothing, exactly… so why all the hate!? Sweet Spike~!! Not everyone hates you~!! Can you hear me~!? Don’t you do anything stupid~!! Some of us understand how you feel and you are not alone~!! Unluckily… Sweet Spike is not with us any more… Those were my last words to him, and this is the last photograph of him. Sweet Spike was found dead at a hotel room in Des Moines, Iowa, on May 25. Test results have shown he died of an accidental diarrhoea overdose. He is survived by… no one. You won’t be missed, but you were still… pretty fly for a stinky guy. “

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

Original Street Artist: Anna Matuszewska in association with Galeria Sztuki 58, Radom.

” I work mostly with the subjects that do not complain much. They do not require anything more than being discovered and captured properly. They do not ask for money, return of favour or anything else to be honest… they are just happy the world can see them. I am not going to lie though… I would love to capture some beautiful girls too. Unfortunately, it would be utterly complicated for both sides. I do not go for any compromises, so… natural light only, my place of choice, my time of the day etc. and etc. I don’t think there are many people who are willing to sacrifice so much for almost nothing in return. So yea… no beautiful girls for me, at least for now. Maybe I will start with my family, hmm… The problem is, I either see beauty or ugliness. There is no middle ground in my eyes and I don’t think they would like to see what I wanted to see. Oh well, I’ll start with my grandparents, I think they won’t mind. As for people in general, there are some fine specimens walking on the face of our planet. I myself have seen some amazing looking girls, and I am not talking about some popular type of beauty here, more like something extraordinary and unique, something you don’t see every day. There aren’t too many out there, but you can still find them, just like with everything else that is valuable. The problem is, how do you approach a girl that is 5 years old without getting arrested? Obviously you should talk with parents but… Who on Earth would go with some creep with a camera around a city in search for a perfect place, light etc. It should be easier with older girls and women but it is not… Everyone is super busy with their own life, not to mention the idea of going to some shady places with a total stranger… As for now, being awfully famous is the only solution that should deal with my problems in this difficult scenario. Or rich, I could always offer a nice sum of money in return for me being weird. So yes, this is my first model. She is a bit shy, but I still have a mad respect for her. She’s the one ladies and gents, she is the first one that let me be weird around her. “

” 1938 ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + HD Pentax-DA 35mm F2.8 Limited Macro )

” 1938… a year before the outbreak of the Second World War that will change the world forever… The year, in which the infamous symbol is still, just an innocent sign. It is kind of ironic that the sacred and auspicious symbol of “good fortune” or “well-being”, soon is to become one of the most hated and evil signs ever. 77 years ago, someone had this coin in his pocket, without any knowledge what is about to happen with the world soon. There is something unsettling and mysterious about very old things. Maybe it’s the idea, that those ordinary artefacts, used to be a part of someone’s live before… or even lives, who knows. It is just a simple coin from the past, an obsolete item, a piece of our history… but it almost feels like a medium between the worlds of the living and the dead. One thing is certain, people ban symbols, ideologies and everything else, thinking that it will save them from evil, yet… they commit the same mistakes over and over again… “
