Great close-ups Walter. That pencil seems to have seen better days!

Walter,
The second shot was well executed and composed. The detail you got with your camera and macro lens is quite good.
Great work!
Aloha

Very nice work, Walter. The macro treatment makes that pen look like something from the future out of Star Trek or Star Wars! The pencil looks like ancient history.

Amazing image that reminded me of something from the West Wing on gov't spending.

Leo: We spent millions of dollars developing a pen for the astronauts that would work in zero gravity. Know what the Russians did?
Toby: Used a pencil?
Leo: They used a pencil.
