Pencil vs Camera Art

I came across this interesting "Pencil vs. Camera" series by Benjamin Heine.

In the start he first overlayed his own simplified pencil sketches on top the real settings from which they were drawn – then simply tore out his work and shoot a pictures of it. An easy enough process, but with surprisingly thought-provoking results.

Love it!

... and my own playing with the idea in photoshop :)

For my uncle...

... who sadly passed away the other day...

Perhaps they are not
stars in the sky,
but rather openings
where our loved ones
shine down
to let us know they
are happy.

Wooden Furniture

I ADORE these wooden chairs and furniture.

Perfect for a patio, lawn or log cabin, these unfinished works of cedar furniture look like they could have been carved from the stumps of trees in your very own yard. Built for indoor as well as outdoor use, each piece looks as solid as a rock but soft and light in tone - still, you may want to cushion the stools before you take a seat.
