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

” A Handsome Fellow waiting for his new girl outside her home. This is the first time they are going to see each other in person. They have known each other for more than a year but they have never met in real life before. He is very calm on the outside but a little bit stressed on the inside. He wants to make a nice first impression after all. It is somewhat funny. They both know exactly who they are going to meet, but it is still so exciting and somehow enigmatic. He has an intention of making this meeting a very special one. A highly sophisticated list of things to do together is charmingly troubling his soft mind. He wasn’t too nice for her many times in past. Not that he didn’t like her, but to keep distance and to keep his head clear. After so much wasted time, so many nice opportunities missed, he finally decided to gave it a shot. Despite all the negative things and the lack of mutual interests, he can’t be sure that she is not meant for him. She’s won. She will finally learn the truth the hard way. It should be such a nice journey, the weather is just right. Not too hot, not too cold. Wind present, but not pushy. And clouds… the clouds are surely magnificent today; big, heavy and so billowy… just the way he loves them. He’s afraid. He’s frightened to the bone of not being good enough once again. He’s scared of wasting what’s left of his emotions on the wrong person. How can she be the right one? She looks okay, she’s quite smart too, but what about some crucial things like passion, mutual things they would both like. There are literally no things that would hold them together except for fucking… and that… you can find just anywhere… Oh dear… he’s hesitating again. Torn apart between what he thinks is right and what if he is mistaken… He needs that hug so much, but what if it is just another trap… What if it will only hurt him and force to leave another piece of his heart in the wrong place… He whispers: ” She isn’t real, I can’t make her real… ” He turns around and walks away, repeating ” She isn’t real, there’s no one for me here… ” “

” I Do Not Know ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-F 50mm F2.8 Macro )

” I don’t know… If you are reading this, there is a good chance that you are probably looking at one of my last photographs as well. It came out of nowhere… really. How could I not see this coming… I had a hard time bringing back something worthy from my last journeys. I should have seen that coming. I think a new phone which was a gift from my brother was the final nail in the coffin. The first video I made with it to be precise, was the point when everything has changed. The funny thing is that I have picked up photography in the first place because the idea of filming, storing all those videos and uploading them with my super slow internet… well… let’s just say, it didn’t look too attractive, and I have decided it wasn’t an option for me. Oh, and I couldn’t have sell and present my videos in such a nice way as the photographs. Not that I have sold any or it was my priority, but yea… at that time the dream was big and lucrative. Any way, there were many situation where I wanted to share something with a viewer, but the photographs were too limiting. I was going wider and wider with the choice of my lenses, but it helped me only to a degree. With a moving picture, not constrained to any particular frame, I can show what I love about certain places and things. Nothing really changed though, I still don’t like the idea of storing video files, uploading them with the same slow ass internet, and everything else to be honest… BUT! My last journey was totally dominated by videos… I have taken like 3 or so photographs, and made tens of short video clips which excited me so much. When I felt that great excitement while I was filming, that feeling that I can share everything what I see with a viewer, that was it. I knew this is the place I want to be. There are still many great things to photograph, and ideally I should have two systems with me; one for photographs and the other one for videos. Maybe I will be able to come up with something that will satisfy me in both. I don’t know… I really am up to my ears in filming. I don’t know where it all goes… I just know I love it, and this is my new way of expressing what I love. If you are curious about the new thing, just search for tgchan on youtube and you shall find it/ “

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

” Beautiful interesting miscellaneous embedded in grey and boring matter. If I would be a child now again and saw this in real life, I would be planning and plotting immediately on extracting those gems. I remember when I was a kid, we used to hit similar wall with rocks and other things in order to get some nice pieces of it. There was this fountain located on a military premises, right next to a housing estate where my grandparents live (actually it was the special housing estate for military personnel families), and the wall circling it was made of concrete with embedded colourful glass. There were also three pyramid-like sculptures in the centre of the fountain which also had pieces of colourful glass in them. We used to sneak into military premises to reach this beautiful construction, and of course to get some of those precious jewels. Imagine a bunch of kids hitting old fountain with rocks, smashing it to pieces just to get some slivers of the coloured glass. It must have been such a joyful scene to witness. Of course we knew we are only children and even if soldiers would catch us, we would talked our way out of it. Obviously nobody in their right mind would like to find themselves in such scenario, so when someone spotted us, we ran away faster than wind. After some time, we have found even better spot than the fountain. It turned out, they were liquidating something we had no idea about, maybe another fountain, but there were huge piles of rubble, which also contained plenty of colourful glass that we were mining so persistently. Unfortunately my happiness didn’t last too long… After a few trips to our new discovered place, I cut my hand wide open with one of those precious treasures… it had to be stitched. As far as I remember that was my last journey there… So when I recently saw this little wall with colourful stuff in it, my mind went crazy and took me right back to those carefree times… I think the real fun had finished when we found plenty of what we were trying to get so hard. I think it is true with life in general. If you can get something easily, there is no much of a value to it… “

” Green Starry Fellow ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + Samyang 8mm F3.5 Fisheye CS II )

” Damn… I feel so lazy today… I should be writing something smart here, but I am so not in the mood… and my god damn lower back hurts too… Anyway, this is the plant and it looks cool. Thanks-Bye-Please come again. Hah, nah… I am just joking… but I really do feel extremely lazy right now, and I don’t feel like I have got some nice writing in me today. Maybe it is the photograph… maybe it is just boring, and this is why I can’t write anything interesting about it? Hmm… but I like it. There is something about this scene. All those shapes, light and patterns, they speak to me in some weird language I do not understand, but I still like what I am hearing nonetheless… It feels like someone has spent more than enough time for this place. Caring about details, preparing it, like she would know that one day I would come and capture her work. I said ‘she’ because I think we can mutually agree, no dude would do such a thing, right? But then again… I might be mistaken. Oh well, it doesn’t really matter who did it anyway. The important thing is, it has been created, and I had a chance to capture it, that is all that matters. I wonder what is your favourite thing in this scene. I totally love the upper part of the lace curtain. It looks like some wicked sea waves during a dark and stormy night. The starry plant itself, doesn’t look too bad either. Hmm… the longer I look at it, the more things I like about it. I am glad it made it through. Damn… all this writing reminded me about very important thing. Never ever force yourself to anything, unless you really have no choice about it. It is just a waste of energy. I don’t say nothing good can come out of it, but the whole process is such a chore, that it may give a totally opposite result in the long run. Just go with the flow, and when it doesn’t go smoothly, leave it there, change direction, and do not look behind. Real talent doesn’t require a heck of a lot of energy to do things, you just do them, and you are not really getting tired from doing them. That’s the beauty of a talent. So, if this is what you are after, it is quite easy to notice if you are on the right path. Take care. “

” Out Of Place ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-FA 77mm F1.8 Limited )

” Poor little thing… It has been looking for its place for so long… so hard too. After years of fruitless wanders, it had finally resigned and let all what was left from its hope go. There was no point holding on to it any more, the fight was over, a loss without much pain. In the long run, it finally got used to its sub-dreamed life, and I even dare to say… it was quite happy for a while. The small but important part was still missing, but it was okay, it wasn’t so bad, it could live without it. One day, totally out of the blue, this great opportunity came along, out of nowhere, really… It was persistent, believable, full of energy and faith… It was fighting so fiercely, with so much heart and passion… Eventually, it gave it a chance… nobody has ever made it feel so special before after all… It was the best thing that has ever happened to the poor thing. Unfortunately, everything beautiful that has come with the opportunity, has also dragged everything out that’s ugly from the poor bastard. It has faced challenges it has never even dreamt about, and even though it tried its best to cooperate with all of them… Ultimately, it has failed to win the most important ones. The beautiful opportunity has decided to walk away at the end of the day, and the poor thing… Well, with its life half-changed for something greater that has never come… it has been left hanging… slightly out of place. The old wall is no more, and the new one… may never come. It feels uncomfortable, cold and lonely. I guess it’s all what it has got now… Another loss, dead end, defeat… this time bloody painful. “

” Ladies In Red ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-FA 77mm F1.8 Limited )

” Ah… Ladies in Red… Look at those beauties, such a fine specimen… So young and smooth… sunbathing in early warm summer rays of sunshine. There are so many… which one of them should I choose… or maybe I alone have been already chosen by one, who knows? How can I know for sure, which is a good choice for me? Should I pick the youngest? Perhaps I should choose the one that is the closest to me and within my reach? Am I being lazy and convenient here? I shall not ignore those far away, especially the one that keeps looking at me at all time. Who the hell am I to choose between those angels anyway!? Look at me… No past nor future whatsoever, a messy present and no idea about tomorrow, that’s all I’ve got to offer. So many liars, even more lies floating through my mind… Chaos, deception, laziness and betrayal from within… treacherous thoughts polluting and blurring vivid lines I have previously drawn so confidently, so true… Focus~! Stop looking at them all. There’s only one, look at her… she’s still fighting for you… or is she? What is she fighting for really? Fear… Is it an ambush or is it a genuine thing? Who on planet Earth is pulling who into a trap!? No, no, NO~! Stop with the negative thoughts again, focus~! Let’s go back to the beginning… where was I? Ah, beautiful Ladies in Red… so many of them, all beautiful and attractive… constantly tempting and enchanting. Those soft petals… good god~! Dancing so gracefully and moving like magic. Do we really have a choice here? Was it ever our decision to make? Is there a way out of it? Can I go back? Is it too late to undo everything that has been done? If I only knew… If I only fucking new… I would never ever lay my eyes on her. I would never let her waste her time on me. Why do I have to be her mistake, burden and disappointment… I’ve never wanted to, I didn’t know… I just couldn’t know… Look at them smiling at you… Are they already laughing? Everyone wants to be happy, feel special to someone, care and be cared about… Is it a game? Is it really just a bloody game…? I’m tired, confused and resigned… Sorry ladies, it looks like I’ve lost my way again… not to mention the appetite. Cheerio~! “

” Seductive Sticks ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-FA 77mm F1.8 Limited )

” Flowers… what an amazing example of pure beauty and careful craftsmanship. So innocent, colourful, fragile and seductive… no wonder all bees go crazy about them. I also think, I know why women love them so much… They are not so different from them after all, are they? The thing is, even the most astonishing flower, will never look good, if there is no light shining upon it. Some women are incredibly beautiful… yet they don’t feel that way, because they are living in a shade of other things. All those sensual petals, colourful details and unforgettable scent… All this, just for one reason and one reason alone… A clever programming that keeps everything in check, in perfect order and harmony. A flawless system that keeps the wheel of evolution spinning and spinning. Is breeding really the only thing that keeps us living and dreaming? Do we really share a life of an ordinary bee, looking for our perfect flower, before it gets all wrinkled up and rot away? Do we really have a choice in all this? Was it ever an option? “

” Happiness In Duvet ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + SMC Pentax-FA 31mm F1.8 AL Limited )

” I was on my way back home. My legs had already given up on me a long time ago. The pain was unbearable and I was barely able to walk, but even then… I just couldn’t take the shortest way home. I had to check what’s hiding behind all those different block of flats, schools and other buildings, twisting my route more and more. Finally, I saw it. There it was, hanging casually like something totally ordinary and normal. Happily jumping in all directions on a freezing winter wind. There was also a group of people nearby, and I hesitated… I came closer, looked at it… marvellous… Then, I thought it is ridiculous. I am not going to take photographs of someone’s duvet in front of some people… I walked away. After a few steps I stopped. No, I can’t. I came back, took my camera out and started taking photographs from all possible angles. After a month or two, when I have finally reached the photographs from that day… I just couldn’t believe it… All those colourful animals, the snow, the sun, even the wind… it’s all there, the magic has been captured. So much beauty and happiness, trapped in a tiny duvet… I can’t believe I have almost walked away from it… Trust your feelings, let your instinct guide you. Do not let second thoughts confuse you. If you are in search of what’s true and pure… Remember, the first thought is unfiltered, the purest and it comes from the deepest inside of you. Trust it… Follow it… “

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

” It is amazing how people decorate things around them, to boost and modify their feelings about certain places. I have been walking through countless buildings and storeys, for hours looking for a gem like this one. I remember when I have reached the floor, I looked at it and could not believe how beautiful it was. I literally wanted to find a person who created it, and thank him or her for sharing it with me. This is what I love to do… Wander around the city, visiting places people would not even think about. Looking for hidden beauties, awaiting to be discovered. I feel like I am walking through the unknown places, different reality perhaps, not sure what I will find behind a next corner. My brain is doing amazing job on keeping up the feeling of this alternate reality I am sightseeing. It feels a little bit like a subconscious lying, but it so real, natural and I don’t even have to try… I just switch it on/off, shifting between real world and the dream one. The only rule in all this, is that you have to do everything not to repeat the same path, place… You constantly have to travel through the unknown places, avoiding everything that feels too familiar, led by a pure curiosity and your eyes alone. Thanks to this, I feel like I am visiting the most amazing places on Earth. How cool is that? Yea, I am unbelievably lucky, that I’m able to do/create it. The problem is, I almost run out of new places in my city, I will have to travel to nearby cities soon, and start exploring the real new lands. Damn, actually it will be double amazing! I hope you will stay with me, and enjoy the new photographs of my new treasure finds, which I will be uploading every weekend! Stay tuned! “

” Miss Yellow ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + SMC Pentax-DA 50mm F1.8 )

” Oh my gosh! Look at her! This is Miss Yellow! I can’t believe it! Oh my god! She is so beautiful! What I would give, to be with such princess… She is so cute, I would love to hug her, kiss her… I would never let her go… The most innocent and sweetest beauty I have ever seen… I love to look deep into your eyes, even though they do not see me the way I see you… I adore being close to you, even though you are not looking for my touch… I want to tell your so many things, share every smile and happiness in your presence… Why oh why, have our paths crossed together, if I cannot be with you? Every moment spent next to you, is unbearable torment for my soul, not being able to express the love I have for you… However, at the same time, I am unbelievably overjoyed, that at least… I can be there, within reach of your sight… “
