18 April

As well as having a love of cameras I used to have a love of fountain pens.
Still do I suppose but I never use them - Manage with a bic biro for notes etc at work!
This is the last expensive pen I bought - probably about 6-8 years ago
A Waterman - and it was well used until I started typing all letters!
Don't think I've got the lighting quite right - the reflections are a bit distracting.

Nikon D70 ,Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro
3s f/20.0 at 105.0mm ISO 400 full exif

other sizes: small medium large

Got a few in my drawers but alas, sunlight never sees 'em. ;-(

Never could master them until the newer Parker ones - but I am left-handed!
Like the way you've left the lid in the background.

Very classy. Perfect to go with Gail's journal.

Excellent macro and what a beautiful pen!

I like this one. I'm have a love of pens and nice thick paper but like you I rarely use my fountain pens anymore. Lovely.

Time for a light tent? Metallics are always hard to get right, I suppose the more you do . . .
Great detail here though.

Know what you mean, can be very difficult, wish I knew how certain people manage it!! All the same, it's sharp and nicely composed.
