I've taken this photo in Brussels, near Louise (Belgium). I've also made the rough sketch.


It is dedicated to STROMAE.


Paul van Haver, better known as "Stromae" (anagram of "Maestro"), is a young singer-songwriter of Belgian-Rwandan origin. He has recently distinguished himself in both hip hop and electronic music. He first became famous with the song "Alors on danse". By May 2010, this track had reached number one in France, the Netherlands, Greece, Germany, Austria, Turkey, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark, Belgium, Romania and the Czech Republic.


Vertigo Records, a label of Mercury Records France (Universal Music Group) signed him for a worldwide licensing deal.


You've got to see his "video lessons" showing how he created his best electro songs simply with his voice, a computer and a small synthesizer!


The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10, which has been provided to me by Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.


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

In Harmony


A poem by Peter S. Quinn


Play play in harmony

Lives beat is going on

Our urban symphony

Till days to past are gone

Day and night a song

With singings of our try

As we come on to long

In each our work and tie


Our feet are in tune

Though playing far too rough

And some are inopportune

Never coming to enough

Like wall flowers grow

The town people live

Taking time fast and slow

With their loves to give


There are no guarantees

Everything’s working fine

For those are mysteries

For day to day assign

We have our hope to find

And face an unlocked door

Just have an open mind

In a city of peace and war
