Pencil Vs Camera - 39 by BenHeine Pencil Vs Camera - 39 by BenHeine

UPDATE: Prints now available!

Ants carrying heart shaped leaves... :)

I recently took this pic in a park in Brussels and I also made
the rough drawing on a small piece of paper.

Please, see the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

(The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10)

>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture:
"Chain gang: These worker ants have been magnified as
they walk across the twig in this piece"
(Kerry McQueeney,
The Daily Mail, Sept. 2011)

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

San FR Ant Sis Co

A poem by Katie Gabrielle

I left my heart
In San FR Ant Sis Co
High on an Ant hill
To drag away

A place where little anty cars
bring crumbs from sandwich bars

And drag hearts from
dumpsters blue

I see my share
of picnic anties

My heart is weary
But here's my theory

A heart is but a dream
Each life must have a theme

But when the ants
come to the picnic
And drag my heart
Up to that hill

For all the anties and bullies
And for that heart of mine
full of holes and dying

Keep on trying
to beat

one little remark, too bad the line on the paper doesn't match the stick on the left, otherwise it's perfect :D
