” 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.

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

” Beyond seven mountains, beyond seven rivers… there is a faraway land called, Pastel Madness. The local people living there believe in a very strange legend. Some of them claim that every 8 years a very special event occurs on one of the nearby hills. They say that during that special time you can ask for one thing, and one thing only, that shall be granted to you. It only works for one person so you have to be the first with your wish. It starts like every other sunset but it certainly is not. You can notice it quite easily with its unique delicate pastel-coloured sky. Now the fun part begins… After a short while of standing on the correct hill; oh yes my dear… you have to be lucky enough to stand on the correct hill during that phenomenon as well, you should notice strange winds accosting your body from every possible direction. What is so unique about them, you may ask… Well, what if I told you the winds have the most delicious scents you can possibly imagine, and they change every few seconds too. After the winds, the most interesting part comes along. The air around you supposed to get thicker and thicker. Soon enough, every pastel colour you can see around yourself turns into cotton wool. Different colour, different flavour. All within your arm’s reach, you don’t even have to move to get it, you just grab it straight from the sky. Once you eat enough, the time should stop for 8 seconds; that is the moment when you should shout your wish out. It sound ridiculous, I know… Yet, there are people who believe it so blindly that they are going to sacrifice their lives just to get a chance to make their wish… I’ve heard some crazy stories about people living on the hills, families moving to nearby towns and villages from across the world just to be closer to this allegedly special place, and many many more… I look at the sky, and it indeed look like it’s got this very magical pastel vibe to it… Sure, there was lots of wind going on too, but I didn’t smell anything nice, hmm… Did I get down too quickly? Maybe I was on the wrong hill? Damn it~!! Why do I even bother!? It doesn’t matter. It is just a story for kids. But the sky… there’s something about it… “

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

” Who doesn’t like it? Is there anybody who doesn’t like feeling of warm water hugging their body? Is there anyone who doesn’t enjoy this blissful form of deep relaxation? Look at those happy fellows. Aren’t they having a wonderful time? The water is crystal clear. The warm sun rays are making sure it stays at comfortably high temperature. I mean, it looks like a heaven on earth, doesn’t it? Who wouldn’t let submerge themselves in this glorious liquid? After a long and tiring day… immersing your fatigued body into this pleasantly hot water, letting it heal your mind and soul. Oh my god… It feels like your body is going to melt away, leaving nothing but an honest smile on your dissolved face… The 2017 is right round the corner, but the warm water still keeps my body in a soft embrace. I can hear some firecrackers already going off in the distance… probably some eager children tired of waiting for the midnight. I don’t want this moment ever go away… I have no worries… I do not have to do anything… I have got everything what I want… It is truly blissfully. It feels so special in its unique way. The last day between the old and the new year, submerged deep in something that feels like a paradise… Happy 2017… “

” 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… “

” Happiness In Duvet ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + SMC Pentax-FA 31mm F1.8 AL Limited )

” I was on my way back home. My legs had already given up on me a long time ago. The pain was unbearable and I was barely able to walk, but even then… I just couldn’t take the shortest way home. I had to check what’s hiding behind all those different block of flats, schools and other buildings, twisting my route more and more. Finally, I saw it. There it was, hanging casually like something totally ordinary and normal. Happily jumping in all directions on a freezing winter wind. There was also a group of people nearby, and I hesitated… I came closer, looked at it… marvellous… Then, I thought it is ridiculous. I am not going to take photographs of someone’s duvet in front of some people… I walked away. After a few steps I stopped. No, I can’t. I came back, took my camera out and started taking photographs from all possible angles. After a month or two, when I have finally reached the photographs from that day… I just couldn’t believe it… All those colourful animals, the snow, the sun, even the wind… it’s all there, the magic has been captured. So much beauty and happiness, trapped in a tiny duvet… I can’t believe I have almost walked away from it… Trust your feelings, let your instinct guide you. Do not let second thoughts confuse you. If you are in search of what’s true and pure… Remember, the first thought is unfiltered, the purest and it comes from the deepest inside of you. Trust it… Follow it… “

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

” The moment when the sun becomes stronger, and snow changes into water… The time, when the bright sun rays reach the darkest and coldest places… Shift, it is time to wake up, rise and start living again. Happy shadows, rejoicing and dancing… trees, stretching and bending their long stagnated branches, warm wind hopping around, from place to place, like a young puppy. Everyone is waiting, nobody is hurrying anyone… When will it come? How long will it last? Will it clean everything in one go, or will it need some more time? Everybody awaits it, they can’t wait to embrace it… the first rain. The great big reset button, that will start the life cycle once again… “

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

” Just look at this powerful and mighty river, with a current so strong, it can move mountains! What? You do not see it? What do you mean it’s not!? OK! OK! ok… let me explain this to you. You can see the water right? Good. What you can’t see is, its sheer will of flowing and moving forward. They had to make a space for it in a middle of a city, because if they didn’t, it would still find it’s own way. You can learn so much from it, just think. If you will ever find yourself in place or situation where you will feel helpless and lost, think what would water do. If it ever stops, it’s only to find another way and even if it will take years to get through impossible; it doesn’t really matter, because at the end, it will still win with every possible obstacle on its way. This is how you should proceed on your way of reaching your dreams, learn from nature and you will find your answers. “

” Message In A Bottle ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” I am not sure what to think of this hidden Message In A Bottle… It is kind of unusual isn’t it? A green skull with two horns and a giant hat of some kind …maybe I am just seeing things… Maybe this water wasn’t as fresh as I thought it would be after all… What if this message was real and it supposed to mean something? One thing is sure though… If I suddenly stop sending new photographs, you can assume it was a genuine heads up. “

” Equilibrium ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” Equilibrium… Like with everything in life, you need a proper balance between things in order to make them work best. Once you stay in one of either extremes for too long, the bad things start to happen. It’s not an easy task to find the sweet spot and therefore it may take some time, before you fully understand it. Please, look at this raindrop… I think we can mutually agree that it has been way too long in one extreme… It lost its balance and something bad is about to happen… “

” Scratch ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” A wide river, calmly flowing at its own pace… The giant needle scratching and cutting its smooth surface like an old rusty scalpel, leaving the self healing scar behind… With teeth clenched to suppress a moan, it keeps going… ignoring the pain. A body that can’t be harmed, the body that can’t be stopped… “
