Visual Aids

Here are photos of the pens I worked on yesterday. I have another on the table; I’ll probably have at it with polish tonight as Margaret and I catch up on LOST.

This is the Sheaffer Balance. The crack runs slong the bottom edge of the lower photo.
 

No Name Red Celluloid

 
This is the no-name red pen. No crack, but you can see the pronounced distinction between the two halves of the barrel. Still, it’s a pretty thing, and (as I said) it writes nicely. I want to work on my pen photography (though I know enough from long-ago involvement with commercial photography tyo know that I don’t want to make a huge production out of it).
 
I also took photos last week when it actually snowed in Durham; here are a couple from that batch.
