” Mystery Continues ” by tgchan ( Sony A6500 + Sony Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 )

” So, the mystery continues… I am still trying to figure out what’s so special about those blocks of flats to me. I think it comes from my childhood. See, I didn’t use to go out a lot when I was a kid. I was basically living my whole life in my beloved flat most of the time, and I really liked it. I was enjoying outside activities at my grandparents at the weekends, but that was it. Five days a week, I was sitting at my home playing games, watching telly and playing with my toys, all the time (except for when I had to go out to school, obviously; which I wasn’t really fond of…). I totally loved my childhood, by the way. Hah~!! I was just reading it over out loud and I realised that my current adult life resembles the one from my childhood almost identically… wow… It looks I haven’t moved in life at all… Anyway, I was spending my life in tight enclosed spaces most of the time, so this might be one of the reasons. The second one I have figured out is probably connected with my lone style of life. See, I don’t have many friends you know. To tell the truth, I don’t have any at the moment. I had two best friends a long time ago, but they are… out there in the world somewhere now. So I think, I really enjoy being around people, even though I don’t like 98% of them. I am leading a solitary boring life, so it makes me feel nice being in places where life just lives the normal way, you know? I am pretty sure it all adds up to itself. Childhood nostalgia, loneliness, love of being outside, taking something back as a souvenir and probably so much more… All that is the reason why I enjoy doing what I do so much, and it explains a lot why I am being so attracted to those places… I feel like I am at home, even though the real one is far far away sometimes. I feel I belong between those tall buildings (inside and on top of them too!). It’s a truly magical experience for me every time I go out there. I just wish I had someone to share those moments with… Just that one person I could take with me and get lost in time… “

” A Very Special Place ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + Samyang 10mm F2.8 )

” Everyone has it, almost everyone miss it… and if we could, we would have returned there without a second of thinking. The very special place from our childhood, the place where everything was meaningful, with purpose… and the happiness was so easily achievable… The people that have surrounded you, your best friends… now, scattered all over the world, living their own lives, far away from yours. Even people you have barely known and those you didn’t like… they are very dear to you, because they are connected to this perfect world of your happiest times. Autumn, winter, spring, summer, there was always something to do… even the most boring moments you can remember, make your face smile and you would love to get back there, just to live through it one more time… This is the view from my grandparent’s window, this is the place where the happiest times of my life have occurred. It doesn’t look like much, I know… but for me, this was the best place to be… It hurts me a lot to be there now, knowing that those times and people will never return… remembering every moment, connected with every spot… I walk there like a ghost, lost in time and space… “

” 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… “

” Empty Night ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” Night… The time when most people are back at home again. Some of them are already sleeping while others are still enjoying free time, together with their families. The windows in apartment blocks are randomly blinking like Christmas tree lights, endlessly creating different patterns. The city looks hollow and lifeless… like it has been abandoned in a great hurry. Maybe one day, it will stay like that forever… “
