” 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…

” Peak Peek ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + Samyang 8mm F3.5 Fisheye CS II )

” The world… what a playground… You can be whoever you want, do whatever you want, yet most of us stay where we are and do what we do, unable to change the course of destination. It is not so big as we think it is, the world I mean, yet it is big enough. I don’t know… I think I like it. There is so much to discover about it, so many nice places to visit, experience, understand… I love looking at it from above. It feels like a mini-map in a game where I look where I should go next. I look at the horizon and I want to be there… I want to climb another tall building, look far ahead and be there… and be there, and be there, never stop exploring, never stop breathing in its beauty and complexity. Every corner hides a secret, a never-ending journey of surprises, full of treasures to be discovered. Sun, rain, clouds, snow, fog, day, night, morning, afternoon, evening, summer, winter, spring, autumn… So many varieties… Each one of them making the very same place look different, every time you see it… Not to mention the different combination of them together. Isn’t it wonderful? The world can be what we want it to be… it is our playground, we should shape it into whatever we wish for. It acts like a tough cookie to bite on, but once you are true to your needs and yourself… it bends to your will like a freshly boiled noodle. Don’t be afraid to show what you want, go out there, stay true and look how it bends to your knees, giving you exactly what you wanted… “

” Interstellar Suspension ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + Samyang 8mm F3.5 Fisheye CS II )

” The clouds froze right in front of my eyes, I could feel air getting thicker and thicker… My body started to feel like it was suspended in water. The change… I could feel it so clearly… Stars aligned, galaxies in a perfect harmony. That moment of an incredible slowdown… Like a bullet caught in a ballistic gelatine, everything stopped in a blink of an eye. What now? I didn’t care about anything… I just kept looking in the sky, trying to see things beyond the clouds. My poor human eyes… they were just not enough. I could still feel it though, not to mention being able to admire the beauty of an incredible display on our terrestrial end of the spectrum. I may not fully understand it, but I know how it affects me. I have walked out from the home sad, but now… I am oversaturated with happiness and joy. I still miss that soft hand I could grab when I need it, hug a soul… but for now… I am okay. So I thank the stars and everything that surrounds me, that I may be happy… even though I know, it is just for a short-lived while… “

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

” Rocks are amazing… scorching heat, freezing cold, wind, rain, snow, and they still hold on tight… well, most of them anyway. They see so many changes around them, so many sunrises and sunsets, even more clouds, constantly shaping into something new and interesting. They also witness small plants, becoming big forests… and even though they are very lonely most of the time… They are enormously happy, when some people or animals climb and tickle them from time to time. Not so glad, when someone is trying to build a castle on top of their heads though. Hug a rock, show some love, share a moment with our solid friends. “

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

” Fluff… without it, the sky looks like an unfinished painting, boring and unnatural. It may sound funny, but it is unbelievably hard to incorporate those billowy bastards into your photography. They are unpredictable, they appear exactly when you are all tied up with work, and you can’t travel anywhere to capture them. They also don’t last for too long. What you cannot see here, is the totally dark area on the left side of the photograph. Approximately after fifteen minutes… the sky was gone, devoured by black and grey storm clouds. I am trying to forecast when they will appear, and plan my journeys accordingly, but even with a knowledge not shy from the one of a meteorologist, I have found no lack in doing so. They don’t only look brilliant, they also naturally diffuse rays of sunshine, creating a magical haze, making everything look so much nicer. To sum it all up, clouds are cool, but… Like with everything in life, the balance is the most important thing, it’s also the hardest to achieve. Sky will not look amazing, if it’s completely covered in clouds, nor without a single one. So yes, if you see a beautiful blue sky, covered with white billowy bastards I am always looking for, take a moment and cherish it, because somewhere around the globe, I am chasing them without luck. “

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

” Scrawny… my faithful fellow companion… We have been through thousands of kilometres, and you have never let me down… not even once. He may not look like much, but don’t be fooled by his appearance. Of course there are prettier and more powerful motorcycles out there, but not for me… none other can match the faithfulness and our long-lasting friendship. When I start it, the engine idle synchronise with my brain waves and from that moment, we think alike. I cannot stress enough, how much we love to travel across unknown lands. Chasing the sun, racing clouds and catching wind… When we ride together, the past and future cease to exist, all problems and doubts vanish like a falling star… there is only now and how we feel. It feels like falling asleep, slowly losing connection with the reality and after a while… you are in a dream, where everything is possible, and the beautiful day never ends… Scrawny, my faithful fellow companion… where should we go next? Will there be enough roads, to satisfy our never-ending appetite for new grounds? I don’t know… but I know this; even though you look great, standing in this sunlight, it is nowhere near, to how you look when you are on the move. Start up buddy, time to begin a new journey… “

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

” It is funny how people stick together. There is so much space, yet they choose to live next to each other. Of course it is more convenient and practical, but the truth is, almost nobody wants to live alone. We like the presence of the fellow species around us. We don’t have to like them, nor interact with them. The mere idea of knowing, that they are living somewhere nearby, is very comforting for us. We settle, live and create the world around us. Plain grounds, stop being flat and monotonous, we change things, adjust them to our needs. After a while, beautiful towns, cities and villages, emerge from the mutual symbiosis. I just wish, we could learn how to live in a better harmony with nature. After all, we are only tenants… and one day, we might get kicked out of here, if we do not learn how to behave and respect our great landlord… “

” 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. ”

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

” Boy oh boy… Does everything look so freaking amazing from above? Is it because we do not experience it from down below? I do not know… but sure as hell it looks great! Same old, boring places, now look like a new and undiscovered realm of magic, awaiting to be explored and conquered. From this point of view, you can make it, what you want it to be… Dragons, elves, castles in clouds, enchanted forests with unseen creatures hiding within or perhaps a futuristic city, where cars are gliding and hovering above the ground… The choice is yours, close your eyes for a second, take a deep breath and create your own reality. Lie yourself for a moment, mix what you see with what you cannot, adding things you would love to see in the blank spaces. How would your city look like? Maybe, once you come back down… it will look like you have imagined it… “

” End of the road ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” Death… the ultimate cure for life. No matter what you do, no matter how rich or famous you are, the colour of your skin, religion, etc., all invalid… you will still end up six feet under like everyone else. Death is the natural course of every living organism and we can’t do nothing about it… at least for now. You can still try living your life in such way that you will be remembered, but does it really matter? You will be still pushing up daisies. So, yes… this is our end of the road and the nature makes sure it disposes us all equally… “
