I took inspiration for these shots from my friend @olegkdnepr who has some beautiful writing instruments.
I have always found writing with a fountain pen keeps me in touch with tradition and the ways of old.
At primary school many moons ago my first pen was a fountain pen and I was mesmerised by it. To this day I still remember my teacher getting cross if anyone used a ballpoint or anything other than their fountain pen to write in their books with.
In the fast-paced digital world that we live in today it makes me feel somewhat more connected and rooted to a more romantic and simpler way of life.
Thank you to @fontoplumo for getting this great instrument to me speedily and securely. Also, a big thanks to @sbrebrown for his in-depth and quality review on this great piece. I salute you sir! Keep up the great work. It is truly very highly valued.
