” 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… “

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

” Every creation, physical or not, big or small, long term or just a short one, they all need a solid construction, the thing that will uphold the weight of the future plans. The greater the plan, the greater support is required. Tough ribs to protect soft and fragile investment. The question is… is it worth building all that around something that may never appear inside of it in the first place? How do you know? How can you be sure? What if it is just an illusion? A dream that will always stay just a dream… Is this what has happened here? Is it an empty cage of ribs protecting someone’s dream that has never come true? Was I here too early? Is the dream still possible to be fulfilled? Or is it just another skeleton left behind… A brutally interrupted vision, a reminder of something that could have been someone’s escape from the usual… A great dream that has shattered against sharp edges of the broken reality. The light… is it still with it? Or has it already started taking it apart? It looks so solid… so enormous… By the look of it, it looks like a real big honest love, I have seen it before. What happened? Something tragic must have happened. Those ribs… so secure, almost completed. Great plans, amazing love, big happy family… What could have possibly stop such hard work and dedication… Perhaps, I am indeed too early here. Maybe it all is still in movement, still alive, still has got a future… Maybe I was just… too early… “

” What A Hole ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + Samyang 8mm F3.5 Fisheye CS II )

” Wow… what a hole… It’s still beautiful, isn’t it? It is quite astonishing, how a place empty like this, can be still so charming. That light coming through broken windows, all small particles lying around and of course… a little bit of human touch, adding plenty of various colours to the mixture. It feels so special to be in such place at proper moment… when everything adds up, makes sense and lives in a perfect harmony. You stand there, being blessed seeing all this, admiring and having a hard time believing that you have made it, you are the one to experience all that in person, you have been chosen. This place also reminds me of my life. It is so interesting, complicated and simple at the same time… Charming, dangerous to itself and everyone else around it. It looks so calm, yet you can almost hear the concrete screaming with anger, disappointment and helplessness. Sadly… it is also hollow and empty… The place with so much space to fill. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to find anything that will suit its natural beauty. You either change it or leave it empty. I do not want to be neither. I want to find a balance between those two. I want to find a perfect filling to compose with those rotting walls and its natural silent chaos. Is it even possible? Or is it just another dreamed-up fantasy world created in my mind, purely to believe in fairy dust? “

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

” Concrete Shrooms growing out of the city’s undergrowth. Piercing the face of Earth, sticking out one by one, waiting to be noticed. From time to time, they puff giant clouds of toxic spores that spread like a bad disease… And when they finally die, they do not simply vanish. They still keep standing there… tall, hollow and creepy. Like an old and dirty web that nobody wants to touch, they last in their places for years… before they collapse. Some say, mushrooms are a result of decay. Perhaps, those ones, are the result of a slowly decaying humanity. “

” 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. “

” Magic Workshop ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” A little magic workshop hidden deep, in the back of garage. So many different things have been created in this tiny place… So many requests from a young boy… all fulfilled, not even one turned down. All these these tools and items, lying and hanging around… each one of them with its own purpose and application. A bright light shines upon the table of a skillful tinker. Pliers, screwdrivers, grinders, wrenches, cables, wires, cans and even hazel nuts… all waiting for their turn. Even though, I am not so young anymore and I don”t ask my Grandfather for a lot… this little workshop of his, will be always remembered as a special and magical place, where all childhood dreams… were always coming true… “

” Speedy ET ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” Speedy little ET hurtles along the railway tracks, dragging the never ending cargo loads. Faster than wind, stronger than ox… he never thinks about any stops. No time for him to look around, he has to ignore all beautiful things he’s passing by. Interesting dark clouds, buildings, trees, flyovers, cars, roads, factories… no time for all that… when you are speeding like a wild cat! “

” 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. ”
