Theme Day: Fountains
Today, February 1, 2011 is Theme Day across the CDPB(citydailyphotoblog) community. Back in high school, there was a time when fountain pens were all the rage. One morning in English, while the class was off attempting some poetry, I was dealing with a balky pen tip. I had a new cartridge in, but the ink just wasn't coming out. I remedied the problem by flicking it repeatedly towards the desk in front of me. Oh, I got it flowing all right, all over the collar and jacket of the kid sitting in front of me. Not one of my finer moments of sophomore year. I've always thought these pens were pretty cool, just not that morning. Here J- tackles some of the finer points of pen work.
