” Dunno One ” by tgchan ( Sony A6500 + Sony Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 )

There are so many artists… Even more people with all sorts of talents… It scares me… It scares me that there are so many amazing individuals the world does not know about? Why? Why do they have to live a life of an unknown? Why some people, very often less talented, climb the ladder of success while the rest, more deserved of that place, have to live a lesser life? It looks like having a talent and knowing about it is just not enough to be out there. You have to make yourself visible. You can’t be famous or even appreciated if the world doesn’t know about your existence. Death is the last scream your personality makes before it vanishes forever. I mean, even if you get all the ovations you can get, but you are still dead, what is it good for? You either make it on time, or it doesn’t matter… Unless you dream about some fame after your departure to another life. The one thing that scares me even more is not finding your real talent before it’s too late, or ever at all. I am genuinely scared of living my life the wrong way. ” Remember, the saddest thing in life is wasted talent. You could have all the talent in the world, but if you don’t do the right thing, then nothing happens. ” – A Bronx Tale (1993)

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

” Poor little thing… It has been looking for its place for so long… so hard too. After years of fruitless wanders, it had finally resigned and let all what was left from its hope go. There was no point holding on to it any more, the fight was over, a loss without much pain. In the long run, it finally got used to its sub-dreamed life, and I even dare to say… it was quite happy for a while. The small but important part was still missing, but it was okay, it wasn’t so bad, it could live without it. One day, totally out of the blue, this great opportunity came along, out of nowhere, really… It was persistent, believable, full of energy and faith… It was fighting so fiercely, with so much heart and passion… Eventually, it gave it a chance… nobody has ever made it feel so special before after all… It was the best thing that has ever happened to the poor thing. Unfortunately, everything beautiful that has come with the opportunity, has also dragged everything out that’s ugly from the poor bastard. It has faced challenges it has never even dreamt about, and even though it tried its best to cooperate with all of them… Ultimately, it has failed to win the most important ones. The beautiful opportunity has decided to walk away at the end of the day, and the poor thing… Well, with its life half-changed for something greater that has never come… it has been left hanging… slightly out of place. The old wall is no more, and the new one… may never come. It feels uncomfortable, cold and lonely. I guess it’s all what it has got now… Another loss, dead end, defeat… this time bloody painful. “
