NEW: High quality prints of the above photo now available


No matter the reasons or the circumstances, I love you today

more than yesterday!


A quick sketch I made while I was in Spain some time ago.

That dog was standing there, alone, looking at me. So cute.

I thought he needed some good company...

The above picture has been shot with the Samsung NX11


>>> Review from THE TELEGRAPH for this picture: A cat

seems to snuggle up to a dog in this picture from the Pencil Vs

Camera series by Belgian artist Ben Heine. The 28-year-old takes

colourful photographs of people or landscapes but covers a part of

the image with a pencil sketch. The sketch adds a bizarre twist to

the picture and acts "like a magic door to a fantasy and surrealistic

world" (The Telegraph, Dec. 2011).


>>> Review from THE SUN for this picture: "Dog's life ... cat

cuddles up to pooch" (The Sun, Dec. 2011)


See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera

images in progress (small animation and original music).

Love Is...


A poem by Peter S. Quinn


Love is a love today

Like before and without

Feelings gestured and play

That’s what love’s about

Nothing to do with playing

It’s just you and me

Forever in a heart staying

With every its opportunity


Love is not gone away

Like some of a longing

It’s in your heart to stay

Never its own abandoning

Ties to its circumstances

Giving its standing a thought

Each of its moments enhances

Blossoms of Forget-Me-Not


Love is a love like May

Spring in its freshest mood

All that makes life okay

Time of each life and food

Every in its music of own

Growing in wisdom more

All that can never be shown

That is what love stands for
