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 (see below)...


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 some 18 Pencil Vs Camera

images in progress (small animation and 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
