NEW: Prints of the above image now available for sale.

I've taken this photo in a very narrow street in Fira, Santorini island, Greece. I also made the rough sketch. I really had the feeling to enter in someone's mouth... :) View a detail/close-up at this link. The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10

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

Days Are Going Nowhere

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Days are going nowhere,
Immortal at last;
Stillness is here and there,
Memories of past.
Years like unknown streets,
All going to by and by;
Remembered bittersweets,
Only a faraway cry.

The simmering fragile wind,
Crumpling nothingness;
Blandly from future rescind,
The fruits and flowerless.
Receptive to breath and sleep,
All is in steep descend;
The shining things into the deep,
Till its very own end.

Days that mask in dark faces,
Flowers with mouth of new;
Shadows passing moods abases,
And hiding realities construe.
Days are going nowhere,
Immortal at last;
Is there anybody aware,
The hour has glassed.
