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

” Nobody likes Sweet Spike… As a matter of fact, nobody liked him ever since he was born. He used to be quite a nice fellow, you know? Unfortunately his strange looks, weird diet and not so much fresh breath made him really unpopular. He’s genuinely desperate nowadays, he just flies around and tries to hug anyone… that can’t be good, can it? He used to be charming, really smart and with a good talk. Sadly enough, time changes everyone… and for poor Sweet Spike the change was not for the better… I mean, I don’t blame him, you know? How would you personally feel if everyone, without any exception, would hate you from the moment they meet you? Not nice, huh? And it wasn’t nice for Spike as well… All he ever wanted was to be just like others; nice, colourful, likeable, cute and things like that. Didn’t work out at all… He got beaten many times, with many different things; newspapers, towels, flip-flops, got electrocuted, sprayed with chemicals and so much more… It’s just painful, you know? Not just for the body, but for the soul as well… Poor Spike, I heard he got addicted to pooh again too. It is not his fault really? The freaking nature designed him like that, what can he do about it? Nothing, exactly… so why all the hate!? Sweet Spike~!! Not everyone hates you~!! Can you hear me~!? Don’t you do anything stupid~!! Some of us understand how you feel and you are not alone~!! Unluckily… Sweet Spike is not with us any more… Those were my last words to him, and this is the last photograph of him. Sweet Spike was found dead at a hotel room in Des Moines, Iowa, on May 25. Test results have shown he died of an accidental diarrhoea overdose. He is survived by… no one. You won’t be missed, but you were still… pretty fly for a stinky guy. “

” Hurt ” 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.

” Why do we hurt each other? What is even more important… Why do we hurt people we love? We hate the idea of hurting people we care about, yet we still do it… Is it the unknown? Is it because you can feel it more than anything else? Are we checking them or ourselves? That delicate and barely perceptible feeling of satisfaction that we caused someone pain. You can easily hide it, it’s a weak feeling, but it is there and you know it. Somewhere deep deep inside of you, you enjoyed it, you liked it, it feels good doesn’t it? We like to hurt, and we like being hurt. It shakes our flat emotionless life from time to time a bit, reminds us to appreciate the good things in our stagnated and impassive existence. Or maybe… Maybe I am wrong…? What if I got this all wrong!? Maybe people are not like that at all, maybe it is… Maybe it is just me…? Could it be, just me? What if I am a monster leeching on someone else’s feelings and emotions? What if I am a parasite feeding on souls of innocent creatures, causing them pain, and look… how they suffer in results of my foul doing. What if I cannot or don’t know how to love, and hurting is the only thing that makes me feel…? “

” 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… “

” Locked In Emptiness ” 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.

” Locked away by none other than himself, trapped in abyss, floating in vacuum of despair… Dreaming about life high, far above everything, living secretly underneath everyone else… Come… come closer please, look into a darkness, try to see my face… Tell me that what I see, is only a fear of what I might be. Locked in a cell of confusion, I’ve got enough. Trying to find a key, now the lock… Where the hell is it. No!! no… It’s gone… I can’t get out, I’ll never be free… Reaching with my hands out, trying to squeeze out, I can’t… I am being devoured, pulled down. I am sitting in a black corner looking at the light, thinking… The key in my hand… Heh… The lock and now the key… I’ve been waiting too long, it’s melting. I can hear the life right outside of my door… Smell it, see and even touch it sometimes… but I can never be a part of it. I have been here for so long… Do I even remember why I have decided to lock myself in this place… Of all those things I could have been, I have chosen not to be at all. My hands holding the rims of the hole, the face hidden far away from the light of life, it’s still afraid. I am looking at it for the last time, before I turn around, and walk deep into the darkness in search of myself. Where will the black tunnel lead me…? Will there be another door at the end of it, or just a dead end? I can hear voices calling my name, I am not turning around, I remember… Now I remember who and why locked me in here… Now I understand who destroyed the lock… Why did you leave the key…? “

” 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. “

” Concrete Jungle ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + Samyang 10mm F2.8 )

” Just look at it… doesn’t it remind a tiny part of a forest? So many lives, in such close distance. The old buildings deteriorate slowly, decompose, while the new ones, spring up like mushrooms after rain. Everyone is doing their little work, everyone has a purpose and special assignments in this crazy, new, synthetic ecosystem. Just like plants, animals and microbes, we are creating our own community of living organisms. We are not different from any of this, just as bacteria has its role and place on this planet, so do we… Can’t you really see the pattern in all this? We are not, who we think we are… We are just another cog in the system and we live solely, to complete the necessary cycle of a greater mechanism… There’s nothing more to our existence… We are not special, we are not unique, and surely… we are not in control. “

” Colourful Poland ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + Samyang 10mm F2.8 )

” This is the view from a local government building, from the ladies’ room to be exact… I know, I felt quiet awkward as well, but I had a good reason to be there; there were no bloody windows in the men’s room! Can you imagine it!? and they say that women are discriminated… pff… ridiculous. Anyway, I have spent a good while to find anything with windows, that wasn’t fronted on another part of the building. I am glad I have founded it, otherwise you wouldn’t be looking at this beautiful piece of colourful and cheerful scenery, would you now? I know that you love it and I have a good news for you, more is coming… “

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

” Deep down below the ground, a weak light glittering at the end of the tunnel. With every step I take, it becomes bigger and brighter. After a while, I reach the source of it. A lighter… a little precious zippo on a wooden shelf. An American legend amongst lighters, glowing with its yellow and blue flame in a dark… but who on earth would leave it like that? It means I am not alone in here, trapped in this forgotten pitch black prison. I should better make the best use of it, before the fuel runs out… “

” Rust Light ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” Have you ever wondered how it would be, if all the lights would suddenly go off…? What if the sun would never come up again? Can you imagine living in a darkness for the rest of your life? The world drowned in shadows as dark as ink, chaos and panic reigning on the streets… Never knowing what is hiding behind the black abyss. What if something else came with the darkness… something eternal and evil. What if this rusty lamp was the last thing you were looking at, before it has all started… “
