Black and white Wednesday

I am slowly sorting through cupboards at the moment and at the back of one I found this pen still in its box which was beautifully decorated with calligraphy.  I have no idea where or when we got it but instantly thought that it would make a good photography prompt! Do have a look at other entries for black and white Wednesday on the Long road to China.

  1. A long time ago I use to do calligraphy with pens just like that one. Great picture -- I love the texture of the paper and the texture of the body of the pen. Beautiful!

  2. Lovely photo. I'm a huge calligraphy fan. This pen looks really old and as if it's seen many words in its day.

  17. What a beautiful photograph. There is something about old style hand written letters. It's a shame they are so seldom these days.

  20. This is just amazing. What a pretty picture. I have always wanted to write with a fountain pen. It makes everything look so pretty!

  21. You're right, it was a perfect prop. It's such a dying art and few still use those pens. I address wedding invitations and have reverted to gel pens. Not as classic, but easier to manipulate. Good B&W.
