Well you have covered or rather uncovered the pens nicely, Cal has covered the pencils, so that only leaves the rest of the stuff. Feather quill, Sky writer, etc.

I like your starburst effect with the pens but the background is somewhat distracting. You might consider trying something different next time.

Say, blue and gold at 2 o'clock looks familiar... ;) Nice one, I actually like the background but will say I wish none of the pens were clipped off.

Are you a pen collector or are you just like the rest of us, can't pass up an opportunity to take a free pen.
Interesting but I think the backdrop is sabotaging most of the impact. A white background might be more impactful.

A 18-carat pelican nib. Wow, that brings back a lot of memories. As a courtesy to the original poster you might want to start your own thread next time.
Aloha and thanks for submitting.

Apologies to Caryl…

I guess I should have read the rules…

BTW, what are the rules?

Problem is, Caryl, that it takes 10 minutes to find one that actually writes (in my experience). :)

At the top of the forum, you will find a sticky post labeled "Forum Guidelines" or something similar. It contains the general "rules" for the forum. One thing that may not be mentioned there is that all new postings should be made as a new thread. Don't post new photos as a reply in another thread. This doesn't mean you can't post a reply with a photo that is related to the photo that started the thread. I hope this is clear. If not, Bynx will clear it up!!!

Wheel of ink you got last week covered to :)

That is a hypnotizing picture. Well done

Even though the background might be distractiing to some, I like the contrasting composition of the pen and the written word and the most likely computer generated words in the background.

Thank you all for your comments. I did put the pens on a newpaper to contrast the pens and a writing. Most of those pens do write...escept when I want them to. I weed them out every now and then. Most are freebees. I cannot remember the last time I purchased a pen.
