Pencil Vs Camera - 51

© Ben Heine || Facebook || Twitter ||



This is an old woman I met in a street of Venice, Italy. She was

walking alone and looking very sad. I hope that person feels

better now (I took the photo and also made the quick drawing).


The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10,

provided by Samsung Electronics. Co., Ltd.


>>> Review from THE SUN for this picture: "Framed ... old

lady is caught in a sketch" (The Sun, Dec. 2011)


See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera

images in progress (small animation and original music).

I Miss You


A poem by Katie Gabrielle


I miss you

That's nothing new

I walked for miles

All tears, no smiles


I miss you

You ran away

I wept for days

I hoped you'd stay


I miss you

But you are lost

I'm weary

I'm teary

I paid the cost


I miss you

No sad goodbyes

You ran away

Silent alibis


Left to wander

Left to guess

I miss you

You know the rest
