    Default The pens that connect us

    George, my friend and fellow photographer, would have been 97 today. He carried two Montblanc pens.

    While I did too, we didn't talk about pens, so I didn't think about them again until after I had an 11 x 14 print made for an exhibit.

    The print is a reminder to me to slow down, notice things, and talk about what we have in common.

    I should have picked it up from your username, but glad to make an acquaintance of another B&W photographer.

    I self-taught myself all about film and vintage photography around 2006 and went headlong into the rabbit hole, B&W film and darkroom printing being my favorite. And the irony is, I wouldn't be here talking to fellow FPGeeks if I didn't see a thread about fountain pens a few years ago on the photo forum that I frequented.

    So, cheers to photographer and pen lovers of the world. We are lucky to find another soul that we can connect to via one hobby, but it's extra special when you find one with two.



    No one in my circle of family and friends can appreciate the above photo, because it doesn't fit their expectation of a photo taken on a colorful and sunny, wildberry-picking day at a local farm.

    Do pens connect you?

    Wise words, indeed.

    All things in common can connect us. I suppose our differences should as well.
