” Groups Of Understanding ” by tgchan ( Sony A6500 + Sony Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 )

A group of people here. A group of people there. You can rarely see somebody alone. And even if you do, there is a great chance they are just going to meet somebody. People are definitely not meant to live alone. So what gives that some people can’t imagine life without bunch of random friends around them whilst others can’t imagine being amongst almost anyone? I believe it is a matter of personality and its complexity. People without the greater depth are more likely to find someone similar to them than people whose nature is rather complex. If you are not on the same page as others, there is a good chance you will not be liked or enjoy the company of those people, probably both. Being alone is not a fate though. It is a choice you make. Of course some people have it much harder to find somebody similar to themselves, if they live in a small town or village for example. It is a matter of time and determination though, so if you really want to find some friend with whom you could share your weirdness, don’t lose hope; it is by all means possible. So going further down this road I’ve tried to answer my own question: why am I alone? I’ve come to a conclusion there is no single reason behind it, rather a combination of a few. The biggest one would be; it’s my choice. My complexity is beyond a chance to find anyone on the same page. The best case scenario for me is to find someone in the same book. My requirements and expectations are similar to my dreams, they’re almost unreal to reach. I don’t even clearly remember how it feels to be around a bunch of good friends any more. I used to have that in the time of my childhood and it was great, but… There’s just too much going on in my head right now, I wouldn’t be able to focus. So yea… it is my choice. It is nice to know there are people who would take their time and try to understand me though, I know they’re out there. Thank you for being and sorry for my isolation.

” The Touch Of A Woman ” by tgchan ( Canon EOS 70D + Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5–5.6 IS STM )

” The Touch of a Woman… They are quite similar to cats, you know? They are both connoisseurs of comfort, but cats… well, they lack ability to create those warm and cosy places on their own. Women on the other hand, they are quite skilful with those things. A quick glance at some place, and you know there was a female presence around. It is really interesting. Women look for males who can give them security, and males look for females who can give them this special cosiness that their mother used to create for them. It all goes in circles. Why am I even surprised with this discovery… Everything in nature works like that. A big fucking wheel of correlation. All nice and tidy, items placed carefully and with a great thought. Colours are not random and everything must go with the rest of the surrounding. It gives me a headache… I like it, but I would never follow all those rules. I know how to create a super cosy place for myself, and I don’t need all this bullshit that this should suit that etc. I like it, I have it. Done. Simple as that. I wouldn’t give up something I like only because it doesn’t go well with the rest of the room or something, fuck that. Going back to the woman’s touch, I truly admire their commitment, and their sense of setting up things the way they do; most of the time anyways There is something special about it, not doubt. Even though, I don’t genuinely know exactly what it is. Must be some kind of womanly magic I guess. I have been trying to capture the beauty of my mother’s bedroom for quite a while now, but only recently, I think I have finally got it. Admire. “

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

” I had found this amber gem a few minutes before it started to rain. Dark and ominous clouds covered the sky, and just when I was rounding the last block of flats, I found it. I wasn’t sure about it at first… But now, I am glad I had taken out my camera and captured it. There is something about it. The simplicity perhaps? Or the colours? Hmm… maybe the texture of the wall? I don’t know… And even though I am not sure what’s so special about it… I undoubtedly and honestly like it. It is my precious gem. Caught right in the last moment, before everything turned grey. The light itself looks like a little sun, captured in a glass shell. You can almost feel its warmth on your face when you look at it. Liquid magma contained in a carefully polished jewel. My precious treasure… you’re mine now. I keep starring at it, wishing my eyes could see more. Something magnificent has been captured here. I truly cannot get enough of it… but why?~! It is just an ordinary lamp on a building. I love it… I love it so much, and I don’t even know why… I guess it is yet another irony of life. Sometimes you just feel it… There are no words to describe it, nor logical explanation. You just know. You know it’s real and genuine… You can feel it deep down in yourself, living a separate life from your own… Unbiased and far away from any false influence. It just is… “

” True Enlightenment ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + Samyang 8mm F3.5 Fisheye CS II )

( Pozdrawiam oraz dziekuje przemilym Paniom, ktore pozwolily mnie sie wiercic z aparatem w ich sklepie :* )

” I am so jealous of those who got enlightened… I am so full of envy for the ones who know where to go… Oh, what a feeling must it be… How amazing must it feel to know you can focus all your energy to pursuit your destiny, instead of wasting it for countless searches… How incredible it must be to run as fast as you can, looking only forward, without peripheral thoughts of better alternatives… How marvellous it must be to wake up every day, and know you can do things that will eventually bring you closer to your final goal… How soothing it must be… to have thousands of lights guiding you through the darkness of night… How convenient it must be to know you are on the right path… The awareness that all it takes from now on… is just energy to move forward, towards the great award. I can see thousands of light bulbs shining… Unfortunately none of them are bright enough, to clearly let me know they are the one I should follow… How can I trust any of them, when the light they produce is so weak and dim, I could easily mistake it for my own troubled and hungry imagination…? I keep looking at all of them at once, persistently waiting for one that will go so bright, I will not have any doubt. At the same time I am shaking and praying that the one I am waiting for, is not behind my back… “

” Got Light ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + Samyang 8mm F3.5 Fisheye CS II )

( Pozdrawiam oraz dziekuje przemilym Paniom, ktore pozwolily mnie sie wiercic z aparatem w ich sklepie :* )

” Got light? Sure thing, bro. But I am still kind of lost and can’t see… I wonder how much light we really need in our lives in order to clearly see where we are heading… Obviously one source is not enough, but what if there is so much light, you cannot see anything beside it? What if it’s still not enough to see in the darkness of destiny…? Do we need one big source of it, or maybe plenty of them but smaller ones where each one of them partially gives hints and completes the full picture in front of our eyes? We walk and turn on more and more lights to better see our path. Sometimes they give light full of bright directions, but sometimes it is very vague and dim, giving nothing but a an outline of what we need. So you keep walking and looking for the new lights with a great hope that the next one will be so bright, that you will be able to finally start running with your life. Stop crawling, stand up and dash like a wind full confidence of what’s ahead of you, taking everything you have been striving for along the way. Are you the light I have been looking for? If so… why the hell am I still feeling like I am surrounded by darkness that’s constraining my movement? It creeps from behind, left side, right side, lurking in shadows of doubt and unknown… Where are you…? I need you… I need your light to show me the path, so I can finally start running… “
