Pencil Vs Camera - 45 by BenHeine Pencil Vs Camera - 45 by BenHeine

____________________________________________________

I believe in parallel worlds! This is a picture I took near Braives in Belgium.

I also made the drawing. I wanted to convey a surrealistic feeling to this compo.

My next Pencil Vs Camera creation will be more poetic...

Thanks for your appreciated feedbacks!

Please, see the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

Some details of the above image HERE

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

Parallel World

A poem by Katie Gabrielle

Bubbles rise
From down below
Parallel world
It just ain't so!

Ever wonder which path
To take?

Left or right
Give or take?

Like the rise and fall
of the ocean tide
The intersection of you
Is the common denominator
Your heart, your soul
Your choices, Your goals
No choice is wrong
But all complete
Just take a chance
Because life is sweet.

Tearing open a pathway into a parallel world. That's the feeling I get whenever I look at these 'Pencil vs Camera' pictures. I love it! ^^

You first take a picture, after that you draw a piece of that picture on a piece of paper and after that you make a picture again with the piece of paper which isnt a piece of paper anymore but a part of a great work of art? Correct?

What you don't know, is there actually is a pot hole there that big, everyone is looking for the ambulance to come rescue the kid that fell in..

If I was a kid, what with the bubbles and all, it would be hard to resist the urge not to dive in! Even as an adult, I'd probably be tempted to rappel down in there to see what lurks in the bottom... Awesome work! :D

I must say, though I love your "Pencil Vs Camera" , I can't but feel like the drawing is not related to the picture itself.
I understand the concept and the idea, but the missing details in the drawing makes it hard to be seen as a whole with the picture, unlike previous work.

Hope to see lot more though, love your work.

I really like the hatch, but I think this time is not very much integrated with the drawing, in my humble opinion. Greetings from México!!!

Cool! The crowds of people look like they are looking at the bubbles/orbs/???. :D

What's the occasion for that many people to be outside? Tourist spot? A market? The beach? :O_o:

The concept of this series is both intriguing and aesthetic. It almost acts like words/writing in that it draws you further into what you are seeing.
