Pencil Vs Camera - 30

NEW: Buy high quality prints of the above photo.


I took this photo near Hannut in Belgium. I also made the rough sketch. I only drew things that came to my mind when I started this project... Sort of an improvisation. The letters placed randomly form the word "PENCIL". There is "Dust" written on the flag, because photographers always complain about dust in their lense and because earth is made of stardust... A superhero is trying to get out of the camera, searching for new ideas, while a smurf is having fun on a horse... A plane, a tricycle, butterflies, a barcode, a guitar and many other objects are getting out of the camera. If you wish, you can view some details of this picture HERE


The person on the left is Sebastian, a good friend of mine. Thanks for your visit. Please, see the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album. The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10.


>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture: "The camera never lies... or does it? The photographer's eye is met with this fantastical scene" (Kerry McQueeney, The Daily Mail, Sept. 2011)


Update: See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera images in progress (with a small animation and an original musical composition)

Sunshine Flower


A poem by Peter S. Quinn


Day is coming clear as light

With its wings of inside fire

Like the morning onward bright

In its accomplishing desire

Hours drop in together close

With runs and roams of drift

Creation beautiful as the rose

In the mind to go and uplift


Summer sunshine flower

Where little dreams go by

Through the endless hour

From the deep and blue sky


Tranquil wingspan ways

Motions on a weaving stream

Flickering mirror plays

With light that timeless seem


Every look in dissolved freedom

Catching moment of dark way

Giving silhouette ad-infinitum

When its fire lights the day

Echo’s flutter in distance yield

Every growth in roots clear

Open heart in artistic field

Now the marvels have opened here


Summer morning shower

Through the day to night

Bringing soothing dower

For the new day and light


Silence flowing yellow glow

For just the two of us

In its timeless motion slow

Of light that comes across


That is ageless on wonder asking

Rising above the earth’s hill

Every instants of creation tasking

That you dream must now fulfill

Thru the seconds of their beat

Going higher then all before

On like smoke to realities treat

And opening up again a new door
