War machines… designed only for one purpose, and one purpose alone… There’s no place nor time for making things beautiful. Performance and effectiveness over everything else. The natural beauty of primal creation. I am a great advocate of performance first, looks after philosophy. This is why everything of military descendance is automatically attracting my twisted mind. It stands so peacefully, so calm and innocent… Even children are treating it as a toy now… It’s quite hard to believe that this immobilised steel monster was once something you have never wished to see outside your worst nightmare. What does it tell us? Well, it means that everything depends on how it is used. Doesn’t matter what was the original purpose of creation; everything can be used to do harm or good. We’ve got the choice and we can decide what to do with it. Of course no one is designing and building a tank to deliver gummy bears… but, you get the point. I think this is another reason why I love it so much. Something so dangerous, violent and born to be straight evil… is just sitting around nice trees, beautiful clouds and green grass; serving as an attraction for kids and families… Chilling like a retired serial killer amongst normal citizens after years of successful hunts… I will just leave you there… Take a moment to appreciate this flesh ripping, bone crushing, skin melting piece of art…

” A War Of Generations ” by tgchan ( Sony A6500 + Sony Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 )

” You cannot stop time… No matter how rich and powerful you are, you just can’t. Generations after generations, they all fight for their own survival. This is how it goes, this is how it was from the very beginning. There are no permanent things. Some last longer while other shorter, but in the end… everything must perish eventually. The fight between generations doesn’t necessarily always have to end in the disappearance of the fallen one. Sometimes they can even coexist in a nice and civilised manner. Every generation has got its own prime time which is eventually replaced with another one, and another one, and so on. Some generations are so tough and resilient, they can withstand almost anything and still coexist with the next following ones. Games, films, cinema, television, internet, consoles, CDs, DVDs, smartphones and so much more, none of it could take books out. They have been around for so long that I don’t think they will ever go away… What is their secret? How come they have survived for so long? Even despite highly digitalised world, they still got masses of admirers. Could it be simplicity? Perhaps… or maybe it is something else. Probably a mixture of things like; nostalgia, simplicity, portability, convenience, deep engagement and many more. Books are simply magical… It is mind-blowing that a piece of paper and some letters stuck together have the power to take you to another reality. Even though I prefer different type of entertainment, I have a mad respect for them. Hopefully this generation will perish as the last one, just for the sake of an ultimate resilience.”

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

” Come out, Come out… wherever you are… You can’t hide forever. It is a matter of time when the real you will take control, step out of the shade, come to light, show true colours. You can’t be perfect, not for a longer while. The cracks will start showing up, you’ll break, fall apart. No matter how hard you try, you just can’t be the best version of yourself for too long. It doesn’t matter for who and why… you just can’t. The legend says, you can leave your old you, and become a totally different person in a matter of seconds. The art of personality switch is a long time forgotten skill. You can become whoever you want, do whatever you want, and have whatever you want. You can leave imperfect yourself behind, become someone you have always dreamt of being. Do things you have always been afraid of doing, and finally reach for the things that were out of your reach before. It is not permanent, you can’t stay in that state forever. It’s exhausting and tiring. Is it worth it? Are you determined hard enough? Are you ready to become someone who is not you, in order to get what you want from life? The legends says, if you reach the highest level of mastering the art of personality switch, you can do it whenever you want, and last in the new form… for as long as you need it. It also says, there is a risk of irreversibly damaging and altering your old self. Random unwanted personality switches may occur, without the crucial element of leaving the old mind behind, you may find yourself internally torn apart, wanting two different things most of the time. Eventually you will become demented, living two different lives in one body, eternally split between what you want, and what you can’t… Forever shattered, beyond the point of repair… “

” State Of Cosiness ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + Samyang 8mm F3.5 Fisheye CS II )

” Every place has got a history behind it… Every mark has got its own meaning… but WHAT THE FOCK HAS HAPPENED HERE~?! Oh well, it must have been something if I had taken out my camera and took some shots of it, right? Damn right it is something ~!! It might not be the most cosy place you could have imagined, but I am still in a strong opinion that it is a beautiful and unique view. In a world where everything strives to be perfect, nice and spotless… this stands out and shouts in your face… FUCK YOU AND YOUR PERFECT WORLD MATE~!! And you know what…? I like it. I love it. I just wish I could see and experience every single moment that has scarred this place with its own uniqueness. I would love to feel that anger, hate, love, excitement and everything else that has caused this place to look the way it looks now. It is truly a rare view nowadays… It might not be the prettiest, it doesn’t try to be something it is not, I agree… but it feels real… Real enough to keep you wonder about the rest of the world packed with lies and masks that try to cover your eyes with something that is not really there… So if you ask me, what do I see in this wretched place? My answer would be… Everything that you cannot my dear… because your eyes are not used to see what is real any more. Every single mark is connected to a strong emotional feeling that has occurred at some point in past. It almost feels like a giant raw database, a CD full of music you cannot really hear, a pack of files on a memory stick you cannot read… A secret message that is not to be decoded or understood… merely felt and forgotten… “

Mario Sepúlveda: That’s not a rock, that’s the heart of the mountain. She finally broke.

 

 7.0 /10 from 12,985 users. No expectations here. I just hope for a decent claustrophobic thriller.

2 minutes – and I have a good feeling about it. It’s different, exotic and fresh

13 minutes – already inside a mountain and it looks amazing!

22 minutes – if you have claustrophobia, you will love it

42 minutes – so far, very enjoyable

1h 11 minutes – another example why you should never ever give up. It is only over, once you decide to stop fighting

1h 14 minutes – most of the time, the focus is on the situation on the surface. They only show what is going on down below from time to time, kind of disappointing

1h 26 minutes – it really plays on your emotions, it is rather annoying watching it with tears in your eyes

1h 38 minutes – amazing acting, really believable and truthful

1h 45 minutes – never-ending complications and problems

1h 50 minutes – holy smokes~! The intensity and tension increase even more

 

This is what humanity is f0cking about~! HELPING EACH OTHER~!

 

tgchan’s rating: 7.5 /10

” Come With Me If You Want To Live ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + HD Pentax-DA 35mm F2.8 Limited Macro )

” Another monument… I guess, we really do need those reminders in our lives, to help us remember about all those good deeds, we have done to each other in the past… How do you even distinguish, good guys from the bad ones, when everyone is killing and acting like a monster… Oh, you had a good reason? Well guess what… now they have a good reason to kill you back as well. The truth is… we don’t need much to start all this hate-chain reaction, and after that… it is almost impossible to stop it. We create, then we destroy, we give life, then we take it back. It looks like everything goes in a perfect order according to yin yang philosophy, yet… it doesn’t feel right. Do we even have a choice in all this? …or is it inevitable, and it is just a matter of time, before white switch to black? I honestly don’t know. What I know, is that people waste too much money, effort and time trying to fix the past, when they can do all that… and try to fix the future. “

” God, Honour, Fatherland ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + HD Pentax-DA 35mm F2.8 Limited Macro )

” Jesus nailed to his cross, an emblem used by the Polish resistance Home Army during The Warsaw Uprising, and the flag of Poland… So much symbolism, so many lives… even more blood, spilled over things that doesn’t really matter… War and killing is in human nature, it has always been. You may say, it’s not true, and I would agree with you. Those smart enough know, but we are only a minority… Once idiots go frenzy, we will be mixed in all this cesspit, and there is no way out of it… Not before they get tired, stop, think and say: oops, we did it again… Then, they will make some national holidays, build a few monuments to honour those who got slaughtered, and act like they have learnt a lesson… It all goes round, it’s inevitable, yin and yang, what was once white, will go black, and the other way around. Actually, I am amazed that we haven’t had any global war for so long. Maybe people are getting wise, after all… I really do hope so. I don’t know about you, but I can definitely feel the pressure, nothing major, but it’s growing. The world we are living in, is getting crowded, things are getting tensed. It is a matter of time, when everything will pop, and when it will, one thing is sure… the overpopulation will not be a problem anymore… So yes… God, Honour, Fatherland… take your pick, people will always find a reason to kill each other… “

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

” Years ago, I felt a weird need of having something very old. Something with a great history behind it, something that remembers life from the past. I’ve won it on an auction by a mistake, or maybe not? I had bid a little too much, in hope that someone will outbid me… but no one did. This is how, I have acquired this special coin. It is hard to believe, that this little piece, is around two-and-a-half thousand years old… Just imagine, how many people had it before me, in how many different places it had been, before it finally reached my place… it’s truly mind blowing. There were many different ancient coins to buy, but I wanted something special, mystical and perhaps sinister. So who is this mysterious persona, looking like a friendly, smiling sun? Her name is… as you may have already guessed, Medusa. In Greek mythology Medusa was a monster, a Gorgon, generally described as having the face of a hideous human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. Gazing directly into her eyes would turn onlookers to stone. So no…, it is definitely not a friendly face you would like to look at. I have kept it for a long time now, maybe it’s time to let her go… Maybe she is the reason, behind all those troubles I have been having with my life in the last couple of years? What if she gets really angry, once she leaves my place? I better not make her mad… Think twice~! before you look into her eyes~! “

” 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… “

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

” Some things are meant to be left behind… Others, we cannot take with us. Through our lifetime, we gather so much physical things… Though, we cannot take even single one of them, to another life. All items are deeply connected with our lives. What a shame, they will never be able to tell our stories… yet there is something unique about them. You can definitely feel, they hide and carry some kind of secret information… Unfortunately, you cannot read nor learn about it. I look at this forgotten padlock and wonder, how many days and nights it has already witnessed, how many more it will… before nature will take its last mineral back to its own place. Long time forgotten items, the treasure chests of abandoned memories… “
