” 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.

” New Year Same Year Every Year ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-F 50mm F2.8 Macro )

” I am not gonna lie… I love a New Year’s Eve. I even love it every year. I also hate it, exactly as much as I love it, when the last visible firework fade away in the darkness of night… The short period between two weeks before Christmas and New Year’s Eve, must be my favourite time in a whole year. The energy and the positive aura is amazing. I love to feel that moment when everyone is so focused on their life; preparation, presents, stress and everything else. It feels like everything around me is going at least three times faster than normal, and I just love to observe it from the perspective of my slow and derailed life… People seem to be different at that time as well, I like them that way. The moment when the last firecracker finally disappears from the sky, is also the moment when I get that weird feeling that the clock has been just rested, and everyone is bound to get back to what they have been previously doing, all year round. Another year, another example that your own plans mean nothing to the plans that have been made for you. That night was supposed to be so special, other than all previous ones… Finally someone to share emotions with, a chance to start a new year like never before, but no… I guess it wasn’t meant for me. At least, not just yet. Once again, my life has been adjusted to the path I didn’t choose. Maybe this is what I wanted somewhere deep down… Maybe it saved me from something that wasn’t good for me… Oh well, at least I had a chance to capture this beautiful moment. “

” 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… “

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

” The clouds froze right in front of my eyes, I could feel air getting thicker and thicker… My body started to feel like it was suspended in water. The change… I could feel it so clearly… Stars aligned, galaxies in a perfect harmony. That moment of an incredible slowdown… Like a bullet caught in a ballistic gelatine, everything stopped in a blink of an eye. What now? I didn’t care about anything… I just kept looking in the sky, trying to see things beyond the clouds. My poor human eyes… they were just not enough. I could still feel it though, not to mention being able to admire the beauty of an incredible display on our terrestrial end of the spectrum. I may not fully understand it, but I know how it affects me. I have walked out from the home sad, but now… I am oversaturated with happiness and joy. I still miss that soft hand I could grab when I need it, hug a soul… but for now… I am okay. So I thank the stars and everything that surrounds me, that I may be happy… even though I know, it is just for a short-lived while… “

” On The Verge Of Change ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + Samyang 8mm F3.5 Fisheye CS II )

” I really like that particular time you know… The sun is almost gone, people returning home, members of families finally together again… it is a happy time. It’s bright enough to still call it a day, but you can already feel it in air, night is close. The first cool breeze has already started gently pushing you around, but it is still nice, nothing unpleasant. I am standing on the verge of change, admiring everything that surrounds me… I have doubts. Why am I standing here and looking at the life from above, why am I not a part of it… what is the meaning behind it? Am I a god? Dangerously balancing on the edge of inevitable, the point of no return, I observe and try to understand my role in all this. Am I risking too much? I wonder how it feels to be down there, living casual normal life. You know… a wife, kids, job you hate, and everything else that adds up to its entertaining uniqueness. Soon, almost everything will disappear under the blanket of night. It is a matter of minutes now, when the clouds will swallow the sun completely. I can’t get enough of it, it’s beautiful… I want to soak in it. I want every inch of my body to get saturated with its splendour. I am tired, I am tired of it all. I want to exist just in moments like those, I don’t want anything less. It looks like the horizon is bending already, will the rest of the world follow it? “

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

” Why do we feel so excited about sunrises and sunsets? Why do we like them so much? Is it the mixture of vibrant colours? Is it because of the illuminated clouds? Why do we think they are so special? Is it the uniqueness we love so much? So many questions, even more thoughts about it. The time when the sun starts going down really fast, is one of my favourite moments in my journeys. When I notice my surroundings are covered in shade, and little to none of the sun is coming through tall buildings and trees, it means it’s time to find a vantage point real quick. I always try to remember nice, tall and accessible buildings I visit on my path, but it doesn’t help much, when they are located a few kilometres away from your current position, especially in a city you do not know. After, at least six hours of constant walking, I am a tad tired, but when this moment comes, I get extra shot of energy and the hunt for a great observation point begins. I am moving extremely fast, trying to spot the tallest nearby block of flats, with its stairwell windows situated in a direction of the vanishing yolk. First, I have to get past an entryphone, then check if the stairwell’s windows open fully, lastly if everything is good, I can climb on the top floor and start the process of capturing. Unfortunately, most of the time there is something in my way… Missing window handle, closed door, blocked view, bad view, window does not open etc. So I rush from building to building, from stairwell to stairwell, in hope that I can make it before it’s too late. I am not going to lie… I have lost many times… but I have also managed to be on time once or twice. Every sunrise and sunset is unique, just like the birth and the death… Maybe this is why we treat them with so many emotions, because they remind us, of our short lived existence… “

” Walking In The Night ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + SMC Pentax-DA 50mm F1.8 )

” A beautiful nymph, silently walking through the black night. The bright moon shines upon her young body, while her soft feet gently stroke sleeping grass. Even though the sun is far away, on the other side, the night is warm and cosy. She stepped on an old stump and leaned against the bent tree, her favourite place to be. She stands at the edge of the precipice and looks down at the glittering metropolis in distance… She knows it’s not her place and that the forest is her home, yet she can’t stop coming back here and watch the high technology existence far away. A delicate breeze brushes her long curly hair… she closes her eyes, and listens to ambient sounds of busy life… “

Sin City (2005)

MV5BMTI2NjUyMDUyMV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMzU0OTkyMQ@@._V1_SY317_CR4,0,214,317_AL_

Great cast, great imdb rating and an amazing original look…  why not watch it again.

Some time ago I have decided I will not write any reviews of the movies I have already seen before, mainly because of my style (first impression). I wanted to watch Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) but I could barely remember anything from the first one… I have learnt that it’s strongly connected with the one from 2005 so, here I am… Let’s see if it will be as good as I have rated it almost 10years ago!

12 minutes – you can hear,smell and see the originality of it from the very few seconds. I can’t help thinking about the game Max Payne (2001) while watching it, it feels somehow similar

25 minutes – the narration and gloomy atmosphere feels so amazing… The acting is so good that you can only see the created characters and no one else. No matter how long the movie is, you’ll never have it enough

42 minutes – so confused for a second… I remembered that the movie has a few different stories but I didn’t expect credits in a middle of it

52 minutes – wTF not again…

1h 13minutes – holy moly! How could I not remember this one! Every second of this movie is a treat!

1h 32minutes – I don’t know how many short movies I have seen already but every each one of them was amazing so far

 

Ok, the last episode wasn’t as good as the rest of them but still!!! Not a second wasted! I gave this movie 8/10 almost ten years ago and I would do it again. Now I can watch the Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014), stay tuned!

tgchan’s rating: 8/10

” Trapped in bauble ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + SMC Pentax-DA 50mm F1.8 )

” A clear blue sky strewn with blinking yellow stars. A tiny village covered in glittering fluffy snow and a road leading to one of the wooden houses. The lights are still on, perhaps a happy family is still enjoying their late winter evening in their cosy little cottage. Green spruces and pine trees scattered around the settlement, secretly catching the falling snowflakes in their outstretched branches. Despite of freezing weather, you can still feel the warm ambience, radiating from this little magic world… trapped in a bauble… “

” Merry Abstract Christmas ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + SMC Pentax-DA 50mm F1.8 )

” Purple creatures dancing around the glowing Christmas tree… Illuminated by blinking blue, yellow and red lights, they revel and have a good time. Jumping, running, hiding, playing and god knows what else… Suddenly! They all stop… They have spot me! They glare at me with their big glittering eyes and grin widely… After few seconds of awkward silence, they whispered quietly – Merry Abstract Christmas tgchan… and after that, I remember nothing… “
