NEW: Prints now available!

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... :)

(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.

This is absolutely wonderful! It reminds me of the concept behind the cover of The Wall, the movie cover, but yours is like a corridor to joy. It's trully awesome how the elements organize, I can see three distinct points in a linear progression of time and space.
Wonderful job, surely one of my favorites at drawing and also at your Pencil Vs Camera gallery.
:D
