” 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. “

” 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. ”

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

” So many different gauges to look at, even more switches, buttons and levers to play with… How those pilots can focus and do their job, when they have such colourful and interesting wall right in front of them? Oh wait, I think I already know why there are always two pilots in a plane… Of course! How could I not know it!? One pilot is doing his job while the other one is playing, and when the first one is done, they switch over! It must be so cool to operate all those technical instruments and know your way around of something, the majority of people have no clue about. Piloting, navigating or whatever… one thing is sure, being a pilot must be amazing! ”

” Reaching The Sky ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + SMC Pentax-DA 50mm F1.8 )

” The Flight of Icarus… Personal over-ambition, which led to a tragic fall… I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t want to walk on paths of many others. Even if it may mean my tragic fall, I will still try to reach and touch the sky. I don’t want to be like everyone else- I know I am not-, walking safely on a solid and sure ground. I want to close my eyes, trust my logic and instinct, run and finally jump right into something with a hope, that I have found it at last… my destiny. I am not afraid of getting burnt, nor the tragic fall… What I am unbelievably scared of… is being nobody, another meaninglessly walking flesh. I will ! build my wings… and I’m going to reach my destination. “

” Winged Pride ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” Ignorance… How often do we fail because of underestimating, misconceiving  and ignoring the little things…? So frequently dazzled by a simple streak of luck, success, or excitement… We lose the sight of the minor warnings which are just waiting for our lack of attention, to cause the major problems… Nobody wants to fly low in his life… but remember, if you will fly high for too long… you will get burnt. Stay focused, don’t let your guard down, expect the unexpected and always strive for the balance. “

” Flying Away ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” Leafy stars… flying away like butterflies… enough of this hanging, too much of this swinging, no more pushing, no more blushing. Too long in one place, too much of the same pace. Time to move on… bunk off… leave it at once, never look back and finally get on track! ”
