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…

” 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.

” Oranged ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-FA* 85mm F1.4 [IF] )

” I am always curious of the setting of the sun. Sometimes, it gives you a wild spectrum of weird colours across the sky. Sometimes, it can even make everything around you look like it’s out of this planet. I was lucky enough to witness it a couple of times myself. It is a truly magnificent experience. Everything you look at, is drowned in colours that should not be there. They are unique, magical and makes your jaw drop with awe. Suddenly, you feel like you are somewhere else… like it’s not your planet any more, or the world is ending. Unfortunately, it lasts only minutes, and the sun is gone a short while after… taking this breathtaking visual effect with its departure. The photograph you are looking at, is the beginning of one of those moments. At that time, I didn’t know about it. I thought it’s just a nice sunset, that’s all. So when I shot what I wanted, and I saw the sun getting behind the horizon taking most of the available light with it, I decided to go back home. At about the halfway of my way back, I noticed that colours around me are getting pretty weird. All pink, magenta and purple shades were dancing right in front of my eyes, making everything around me look bizarre. At that point, I realised that I am going to miss out this marvellous occurrence… even worse~!! I was going to miss it with the camera in my hands. I thought to myself; it’s not gonna happen~!! So I started to run, and run hard to the only place that could give me at least a slightest chance to capture this rare beauty of nature. As I was running along, I had those beautiful photographs I wanted to have so bad, right in front of my eyes… Did I get at least one of them? Well, we will see about it… the next weekend… “

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

” So, the sun is already comfortably lying in its soft horizon bed… It still has its eyes wide open, but the eyelids are getting heavier and heavier with every minute passing by. It is a matter of short time now, when those bright eyes full of light will get closed for several hours, leaving the town under a dark blanket. People on the other hand are far away from a goodnight sleep. Still busy, still lots of things to finish up before they can snug into their comfy beds. The sky has already started losing its colours, slowly giving up to the inevitable change. The last clouds are soon to be dissolved, leaving nothing but an empty space behind. Wind turbines starting waking up, stretching their arms, warming up, preparing to dance all night. Good night settlers… have a nice and restful night. Time to rest. Close your eyes, let your mind drift away… be free… “

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

” Do you believe your mind is free? Can you really do what you want in life? Sometimes it feels like my head is going to explode any second… I cannot stop thinking, analysing, calculating odds, looking for patterns and explanations. The train of thoughts is speeding through my mind, leaving nothing but a chaos and disorder behind. I am trying to focus and catch at least one wagon, something I could start with… but they all go so fast, so many of them… I am just standing there and looking at them how they keep passing me by, flickering in front of my eyes, leaving only bits behind… I am trying to pick them up and make sense of it, but it is just not enough. So I stand up and keep looking at them again, hoping that some bigger chunk will fall out eventually, something that will help me understand. How can you break free from a prison that you cannot see or touch? …but you can still feel it, and you know it’s there, real… like anything else you are experiencing in the physical world. The prison that nobody else can help you out from. The place that exist only in your mind, yet… so sophisticated and efficient at keeping you away from being truly alive. I have managed to escape from a typical life. Nothing really have me in its grip. Money, love, career etc. I am beyond the great scheme. I have walked out of the life’s blueprint just to find out, there is nothing out there. I look at it, far away from a distance, in darkness. I can see how it works… People like ants, constantly busy with their little lives… somehow I still envy them. I have been running away from it for so long… now I wish I would never had, I think. How can I go back? Is it even possible? Can I forget what I have seen and know? Do I even really want it? It looks like ignorance is bliss. I have escaped one prison… just to lock myself up in another one. Good job, Chan. You really made it worthwhile… Okay, since going back is not a real option… How can I turn it to my advantage? Why am I having such a problem with exploiting what I know? Why do I want to be a good guy? Am I the good guy? Who are those people? Is it me? Does each one of them represent a possible life I have locked myself away from? I am scared to look left and see how many times I have done that… I am even more frightened to look right, and see how many more times I will do it again… Wait… do I see the light there? “

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

Original Street Artist: Anna Matuszewska in association with Galeria Sztuki 58, Radom.

” A face full of scars, eyes filled with tears and a heart shattered by thousands of unfulfilled and broken dreams… Still looking up, still… searching for light. Another dream, another failure… pain… another scar to patch up. Living deep down, below in darkness, almost at the bottom… not low enough to bounce back and regain control, drifting… A soul so battered and ripped apart, it scares with all the hollows, echoes and ever-tearing stitches. Tears changing into pus, life shifting gracefully into a coma… a blissful lethargy, slowly taking everything away. There’s no fight, not anymore, only compliance. Awakening, again. Another vision, another hope. Looking in the mirror, still deformed… unsightly. Nothing has changed, nothing ever does… Euphoria, enlightenment, hope, happiness, enchantment, love… Taking a razor blade, a short glance at a shiny frail piece of steel, time to fail once again. Cutting the soft flesh of own face… warm red liquid covers all. Look, another broken dream… another chance for a new life, another distraction, another mark. A white cloth takes a place of a fresh and swollen wound, I can still feel… I can still dream. What have I become… Will I ever succeed, and start living before I am finally gone… ? “

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

” Earth shakes, silent thunders boom, all goes quiet… A new day has just arrived. The glowing gem languidly rising on the horizon, shifting the light left and right, tuning up, adjusting… Concrete sticks huffing and puffing the smoke out, trying to catch a breath and turn the sky into a fluff. A freezing grip holds everything tight, doesn’t let anything move, be happy and glad. Black birds idly waving on stiff branches of the naked trees, waiting for the first warm sunny rays to strike their feathery coats. The bright beams of white mechanical light, far away in distance, wide open, glittering like wild animal eyes in a dark… Who are you, how dare you disrupting this magnificent moment of peace. The time, when everything is still in an innocent bliss… “

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

” It feels like everyone is going in the same line, doing things because people expect them to do it, acting in a way they are supposed to… why? The longer I think about it, the more scary reality I unravel. People are selfish, they expect you to behave in a nice and given manner, totally ignoring your own reality and predispositions, not to mention problems. Once they find out, that you refuse to dance to their music, they start treating you like their enemy, like you would have done something bad to them. Why? You only wanted to be respected, why do they have to bring their chaos into your life, why don’t they think about you; how you may feel about certain things. No, I am not like you or the majority of people. If you are going to talk to me, do it in a way, where I actually mean something, have an option and my choice is respected. I am sick tired of seeing everyone around, acting like a mindless bag of meat… Yeah, go on… Call me antisocial, rude, weird or whatever… it doesn’t matter, your rules do not apply to me. I am disconnected. “

The music I have been listening to, while writing and developing the photograph:

Bend the reality

So I can’t have my dream job… so what!?

I will make my own reality then… From now on I will do something I have always wanted… Create music…

So far all my efforts getting into this failed miserably. The amount of time you have to invest in learning the software is staggering… The complexity of program has always kept me away from getting anywhere…

Starting from tomorrow I will treat it like my real job. I will work hard by learning the music program for at least 5h a day!  I don’t know if I’ve got what it takes to make music but I’ll do everything to find out…. This is the only way to overcome my laziness and fear. Let’s see where the path leads…

 

Enjoy some of the recently developed photographs (It’s time to go out with the camera… I don’t have any more to develop!):
