” A War Of Generations ” by tgchan ( Sony A6500 + Sony Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 )

” You cannot stop time… No matter how rich and powerful you are, you just can’t. Generations after generations, they all fight for their own survival. This is how it goes, this is how it was from the very beginning. There are no permanent things. Some last longer while other shorter, but in the end… everything must perish eventually. The fight between generations doesn’t necessarily always have to end in the disappearance of the fallen one. Sometimes they can even coexist in a nice and civilised manner. Every generation has got its own prime time which is eventually replaced with another one, and another one, and so on. Some generations are so tough and resilient, they can withstand almost anything and still coexist with the next following ones. Games, films, cinema, television, internet, consoles, CDs, DVDs, smartphones and so much more, none of it could take books out. They have been around for so long that I don’t think they will ever go away… What is their secret? How come they have survived for so long? Even despite highly digitalised world, they still got masses of admirers. Could it be simplicity? Perhaps… or maybe it is something else. Probably a mixture of things like; nostalgia, simplicity, portability, convenience, deep engagement and many more. Books are simply magical… It is mind-blowing that a piece of paper and some letters stuck together have the power to take you to another reality. Even though I prefer different type of entertainment, I have a mad respect for them. Hopefully this generation will perish as the last one, just for the sake of an ultimate resilience.”

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

” Every place has got a history behind it… Every mark has got its own meaning… but WHAT THE FOCK HAS HAPPENED HERE~?! Oh well, it must have been something if I had taken out my camera and took some shots of it, right? Damn right it is something ~!! It might not be the most cosy place you could have imagined, but I am still in a strong opinion that it is a beautiful and unique view. In a world where everything strives to be perfect, nice and spotless… this stands out and shouts in your face… FUCK YOU AND YOUR PERFECT WORLD MATE~!! And you know what…? I like it. I love it. I just wish I could see and experience every single moment that has scarred this place with its own uniqueness. I would love to feel that anger, hate, love, excitement and everything else that has caused this place to look the way it looks now. It is truly a rare view nowadays… It might not be the prettiest, it doesn’t try to be something it is not, I agree… but it feels real… Real enough to keep you wonder about the rest of the world packed with lies and masks that try to cover your eyes with something that is not really there… So if you ask me, what do I see in this wretched place? My answer would be… Everything that you cannot my dear… because your eyes are not used to see what is real any more. Every single mark is connected to a strong emotional feeling that has occurred at some point in past. It almost feels like a giant raw database, a CD full of music you cannot really hear, a pack of files on a memory stick you cannot read… A secret message that is not to be decoded or understood… merely felt and forgotten… “

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

” I need that car… I need it now real bad… I have to quickly drive away from this world, before it alone will drive me mad. I need to go back to a place where I meant something, the air I was breathing in was not poison, and the life I was living had more than two colours available. I have got plenty of fuel for what I need, well refined from all the burnt dreams over the years. Will I have got enough courage to grab the steering wheel and control the course of my destination? I have to… That cannot be another wasted opportunity to finally go flat out with everything I have been holding back for so long… I can’t afford it, not any more… A colourful vehicle, a time machine from the better times, a vessel that may bring what has been once lost and left behind in the past… A hope? Maybe. So it’s there… hidden somewhere beneath the complexity of human subconscious, buried in thoughts of the present, surrounded by ugliness and decay of yesterday… but it’s there… and it’s waiting to be found. Don’t stop, not now, not tomorrow. You are closer than you may think. Look for the clues, remember what you have been always doing, what has always been a part of you. Do not abandon your instinct, it’s the only compass you can trust. Now, can I? The best things happened because I have ignored what you have been telling me, but again… They have also brought the worst things… Maybe… maybe you are right. Maybe I should have never abandoned you, maybe there is something meaningful at the end. All that pain and suffering can’t be for nothing, right? It has to have some kind of gratification to even things out. Maybe if I had listened to you before, I wouldn’t have been thinking in circles now… That stupid venomous mistake… what was I thinking… I should have never come out of my world. What the hell was I thinking… that I could be like others? That I could do things like everyone else does? Stupid… Forget it. Get the fucking car and be done with it, never stop afterwards. Not for anything, not for anyone. They can jump right in, but there will be no stops. You have been standing in one place long enough. “

” The Child’s View ” 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.

” It is quite fascinating how children’s eyes see the world. It doesn’t matter if they are living in a dream place or just in a poor and grey tenement, their world is still much more colourful than ours. No matter what happens around them, their reality stays pure and innocent. They don’t see things, the way we do. Their lack of sophisticated thinking, and not overthinking things, makes them genuine, frank and transparent in their doings. They don’t worry about the past, the future or even the present… They say and do what they feel and want. Their mind is free, light and focused on the essence of life. They do not limit themselves to the world they are living in, they create their own. The head full of dreams, ideas and a vision that the whole universe is just a giant playground. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, we start losing this unique ability. Day after day, our mind is getting polluted more and more, our vision blurred and senses mutilated… Soon, we are all stripped-down, left with some single hopes to live on… “

” Come With Me If You Want To Live ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + HD Pentax-DA 35mm F2.8 Limited Macro )

” Another monument… I guess, we really do need those reminders in our lives, to help us remember about all those good deeds, we have done to each other in the past… How do you even distinguish, good guys from the bad ones, when everyone is killing and acting like a monster… Oh, you had a good reason? Well guess what… now they have a good reason to kill you back as well. The truth is… we don’t need much to start all this hate-chain reaction, and after that… it is almost impossible to stop it. We create, then we destroy, we give life, then we take it back. It looks like everything goes in a perfect order according to yin yang philosophy, yet… it doesn’t feel right. Do we even have a choice in all this? …or is it inevitable, and it is just a matter of time, before white switch to black? I honestly don’t know. What I know, is that people waste too much money, effort and time trying to fix the past, when they can do all that… and try to fix the future. “

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

” Angry Grandpa, yup, that’s him. We call this guy so, because he is old and mean to everyone around him. He sits in his garden all day long and looks around with those small but smart eyes, hidden deep under the emotionless eyebrows. A long stretched moustache across his face, successfully covers possible grimace. He doesn’t like kids, nor dogs, as a matter of fact… he doesn’t like anyone except for his other grumpy buddies. They visit him from time to time, they barely speak though, just sit there and stare at nothing together… Some say he remembers the war, others gossip about him being some kind of a hero. All I know for sure, is that he is not nice and he never allows us to play around his place… He has so many interesting things in his backyard… I wish we could go in there and look around some. Unfortunately, it is out of the question… Some say, he likes to plant landmines next to his flowers… I am not eager to find out if it’s true… “

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

” Beauty and the Beast, king of the sky, fearless conqueror of the whitest clouds… Forever grounded, revoked, left behind… Looking proudly, far above, reminiscing about the old days of glory and love. Living in past, choking back tears while looking at youngsters jetting around, poor soul… It would give everything just to feel refreshing breeze in its nose again, one touch of the white billowy clouds, one last dive before everything goes dark… In vain, dreaming about the things that cause unbearable pain. It’s better not to think about it, forget, focus on the new things, it could have been much worse… At least, you can still look at the blue sky, not like those poor souls locked in hangars and museums, stripped from wings and engines. Cherish the moment, forget about the painful past, look in the future and see the stars. ”

” Left Behind ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + SMC Pentax-DA 50mm F1.8 )

” Some things are meant to be left behind… Others, we cannot take with us. Through our lifetime, we gather so much physical things… Though, we cannot take even single one of them, to another life. All items are deeply connected with our lives. What a shame, they will never be able to tell our stories… yet there is something unique about them. You can definitely feel, they hide and carry some kind of secret information… Unfortunately, you cannot read nor learn about it. I look at this forgotten padlock and wonder, how many days and nights it has already witnessed, how many more it will… before nature will take its last mineral back to its own place. Long time forgotten items, the treasure chests of abandoned memories… “
