” 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… “

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

” Beyond seven mountains, beyond seven rivers… there is a faraway land called, Pastel Madness. The local people living there believe in a very strange legend. Some of them claim that every 8 years a very special event occurs on one of the nearby hills. They say that during that special time you can ask for one thing, and one thing only, that shall be granted to you. It only works for one person so you have to be the first with your wish. It starts like every other sunset but it certainly is not. You can notice it quite easily with its unique delicate pastel-coloured sky. Now the fun part begins… After a short while of standing on the correct hill; oh yes my dear… you have to be lucky enough to stand on the correct hill during that phenomenon as well, you should notice strange winds accosting your body from every possible direction. What is so unique about them, you may ask… Well, what if I told you the winds have the most delicious scents you can possibly imagine, and they change every few seconds too. After the winds, the most interesting part comes along. The air around you supposed to get thicker and thicker. Soon enough, every pastel colour you can see around yourself turns into cotton wool. Different colour, different flavour. All within your arm’s reach, you don’t even have to move to get it, you just grab it straight from the sky. Once you eat enough, the time should stop for 8 seconds; that is the moment when you should shout your wish out. It sound ridiculous, I know… Yet, there are people who believe it so blindly that they are going to sacrifice their lives just to get a chance to make their wish… I’ve heard some crazy stories about people living on the hills, families moving to nearby towns and villages from across the world just to be closer to this allegedly special place, and many many more… I look at the sky, and it indeed look like it’s got this very magical pastel vibe to it… Sure, there was lots of wind going on too, but I didn’t smell anything nice, hmm… Did I get down too quickly? Maybe I was on the wrong hill? Damn it~!! Why do I even bother!? It doesn’t matter. It is just a story for kids. But the sky… there’s something about it… “

” Princess Flower Face ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + SMC Pentax-DA 50mm F1.8 )

” One lazy Sunday, I was walking slowly around allotment gardens when I suddenly heard a female voice that screamed ” Watch out for my face! “. I jumped up, scared mercilessly and started looking around nervously, but there was no one around me. Once again, I have carefully looked around, not a living soul… and just when I was about to make my step, I heard it again… ” Stop moving you blind brute, you will squash me! “, then I saw her… I couldn’t believe my eyes, nor her… as a matter of fact. Big pink blinking eyes with bright honey colour looking pupils, glaring straight into mines. Her voice was soft and soothing, when she was not screaming of course… I sat there, right in front of her, and we have started talking like we would have known each other for a long time… Hours have passed and countless big white billowy clouds above our heads since our mutual encounter, but it wasn’t enough… I have learnt about her past and a bad spell she has been put under. Her story was beyond belief… incredibly cruel punishment for a good heart, another realm, elves, magic creatures, spells and so much more… Her time was running out though, once the sun is gone, she will have to wait another millennium and even then… her chances of someone spotting her will be almost none existent… I was her only rescue and my task was ridiculously trivial. A kiss, laid on her little fragile red lips, supposed to finish her endless torment. I think it worked, because right after I did it, she started going transparent, and after a while… only grass was left. Princess Flower Face… this is how I have named her, because in all this crazy story… I have forgotten to ask about her name… I still remember her words ” …One day, after a long night sleep, you will open your eyes and you will find me lying next to you… ” Twenty-two years have passed, but I have not lost faith in her promise, not just yet… My little Flower Face Princess… “
