” Spiky Greens ” by tgchan ( Sony A6500 + Sony Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 )

I always knew… I have always known what I want in life… I was sure and confident about it as well… I don’t know what happened, I mean I know… but it is too hard for me to believe it. It scares me because I know it’s true, and I don’t know the way out of it now… I have set myself on the path that was not designed for me at all… I have triggered the bomb, and I don’t know how to stop the countdown. Piece by piece, life is stripping me of what I have known… Leaving me with nothing but darkness and chaos in my mind. I don’t know what I want any more, what is even worse; I feel like the things I have always loved doing are leaving me as well… All my pillars of existence are crumbling underneath the weight of emptiness. I just don’t know any more… I feel like those spiky greens shivering and trembling in the wind, unconsciously waiting to be finally knock down from their highest point in life…

” 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)

” One Of Many ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-F 50mm F2.8 Macro )

” It is mind-boggling… We are living in a linear story, somewhat trapped in it, but we also have the ability to change almost anything we want, at any point and to any extent. Why do we choose to stay passive instead of creating a reality where we could be much happier? What is it that makes us stick with secure but mediocre zone, instead of going a little crazy and improve things we are not happy about? I can flip my life over 180 degrees in a matter of hours, maybe even minutes, but I choose not to… remaining in the very same and boring place… Why? Sometimes I have got this feeling, it’s so real and so vivid that it almost feels like someone else’s memory… Sometimes, I can sense a different life… A warm alternative to what I am currently living. It feels like I am almost there… Like I am going to switch to it any second now, but after a very brief moment… it’s gone. The possibilities seems to be endless. Are we living in one of many parallel universes? Can we truly modify the life we are currently living? Or is rigidly programmed, where our possibilities are limited to only what had been previously written? I know so much… Why can’t I take any advantage of it… I must get out of here… I have to learn the way of… Choice. The problem is choice. “

” Dragon Skin ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-F 50mm F2.8 Macro )

” Dragon Skin… Sometimes I think, the only way to stop life getting to you, is to grow dragon skin… So thick and so robust that even flaming hate and love could not get through it. This, or learn how to channel everything that’s harmful with such precision that nothing can really touch you. The latter is probably a better choice, but it’s much harder to achieve as well. Confusion and inability to understand morphs into hate… The skin starts glowing… No response and lack of caring changes hate into rage. The skin lights up… Past memories start bleeding once again. The skin is almost transparent, ready to burst with all might and fury… By the time everything spills over, you are all alone… there is no one there… not any more. It all disperses like a morning fog… All this building up, tension and accumulation of negativity, all for nothing… Waste of time and energy, pointless. Dragon skin would never let it happen. It’s too tough, way too smart to let such things glide through. Black tendons hold it all tight and secure. Glassy flesh will not let you see. Cold and solid, keeps secrets within its boundaries. You can spot life behind its fortification, bright and live, but you cannot get through… It’s way too scared, too fragile, and too soft to let anyone close again. It somehow wants to connect with you, lonely and hungry for another soul, but poor doesn’t know how to get through the very own wall, it once wanted so much to have around itself. Unfortunately trapped in its own shelter. It will take time, hard work and dedication on both sides, too finally free what has been buried so securely underneath dragon skin. Let’s just hope it will be worth the wait and struggle… “

” Stop Turn Or Reverse ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-FA 77mm F1.8 Limited )

” There are moments in life when you just have to stop… The big red light lights up and yells at you STOP YOU DUMB FUCK~! you’ve had enough. Sometimes we just can’t go forward any more, no matter how bad we want it… It is so hard to do anything when everything stands in your way. I often wonder if it’s the life letting me know I should stop, resign and focus on something else, or maybe… it doesn’t want me to reach my goal, because there is a big reward at the end of the troublesome lane I have chosen… Confusion… so much of it… So what should I do? Trust my own thoughts or go against them? Are they trying to help me or pull me down…? I can see the light but I am not sure what to do with it… I do not want to turn nor reverse, but I know… that if I will wait too long… someone will bump me, and force me to go forward against my will. Am I seeing my own red light here… or is it someone else’s reflecting in my eyes? So long in one spot, so much time wasted, the inevitable is close. My mind slowly corrodes, rust away leaving another hole… I look around in search of a direction, but the gloom around me is the only thing I can see, it gets to me. I can feel its cold claws climbing on my back and slowly getting around my neck, gently squeezing… letting me know and reminding… that my life is not my own, and it belongs to darkness. So here I am, the big red light right in my face, waiting for my move… the decision I have no idea about. It feels like the road I have known so well, ended at some point a while ago. I have wandered for some time now… it is pointless looking for the way back home, it’s gone. Do I even want to go back? Could I… ? Another STOP in my life… it’s different this time. I do not know the crossroads. Turn or Reverse… ? Why the fuck am I not seeing what’s ahead of me~!? I WANT THE THE THIRD OPTION. I am tired of reversing, I’ve got enough of turns~!!! I want a straight path to happiness, do you hear me~!? … What… ? There isn’t one for me… ? Oh well… I will leave the car here then… and check what’s inside of this dark forest that’s smiling at me…. “

” Love Is A Bubble ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-FA 77mm F1.8 Limited )

” So what is love exactly? It’s a trap among many other things, that’s for sure. You either destroy it at its infancy, or you get trapped inside of it. It comes in various shapes and colours, luring you slowly yet firmly. Once it gets hooks in your heart, there is no escape from it. At least, not without ripping and leaving a great chunk of your own flesh behind. So what is this infernal tool, why does it even exist? What is its purpose? Well folks, it is nature’s plan B or A, depends on what works and what doesn’t in particular case. You can escape one, but the second thing will most likely get you anyway. Some people only chase bodily pleasures, others seek a twin soul, and some are in search for those both things at the same time. It is a fragile creation… nonetheless, utmost dangerous. Many people are designed to coop with it, without any major malfunctions. There are also those who are missing some important data, and are not able to assimilate it properly. Those poor souls are exposed to extreme confusion, pain and feelings that erode their minds inexorably, killing them slowly and silently from the inside. A trap that can ruin ongoing existence, or give the meaning to an empty life. It is quite unfair how it works though. It hits directly at your weakest points, leaving you vulnerable and open to attacks from people with malicious and selfish intentions. So what is love exactly? The answer to the question is quite simple… It’s a death. The death of the person you have known your entire life. “

” 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… ? “

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

” Objects… they are not just objects right? Well, at least not all of them. There is always something more behind their look, an untold story of some kind that only a few know. Colour, shape, choice of material and so much more… it all started as an idea, a concept in someone’s head, and it took a while before that someone, could finally see it in person. We buy things, we use them, and finally we throw them away… all this, without much thinking; why it was made the way it was, or what kind of person could create it. Even the most generic items have this intriguing connection with their original creators. Someone thought about it, turned it into a physical object, and now… you are in possession of it… You have something you can touch, something that was only a someone’s thought at the time… something surreal and completely abstract. You never know if it’s the best work or just an accident, it just is… and it doesn’t change the fact, that the link is still there… A part of someone else’s life, entrapped in an inanimate object… Now go ahead, take a look around you… Who made that bottle? Who thought about its shape? Why is that keyboard black? Who originally imagined, how all those things should look like? We are living in a world of alien thoughts, the thoughts entrapped in objects which constantly surround us… “

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

” Changes… even when they are bad, they are still good. It is something we need in order to evolve, learn and be. It doesn’t matter if we are the ones making them, the life goes on, and it constantly morphs into something new. There are no permanent things. Something that was blue once, might be yellow soon, just to change into green later on. We cannot expect to last forever, nothing ever does… All those changes give us a clear idea about one thing, there is something after death, and we don’t need any religion to tell us about it. Our lives have been changing with the very moment of our existence. We cannot escape it, nor avoid it… What we can, is to use it to our advantage, make the best of it. Nothing is ever lost, just like nothing is ever sure… “

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

” Refreshing breeze starting to blow stronger and more frequently… Naked trees and bushes dance to an inaudible rhythm in the spotlight of ever-changing sky. City lights glittering on and off, trying to join the dance floor… People coming from work, hurrying in their cars, listening to the favourite radio stations. The warm orange is slowly giving up under the pressure of cold blue and purple spectrum… Soon all the colours will go out and a black monotony will rule over the night. ”
