Featured in – Cee’s Fun Artsy Friends – 7Dec2011

Nowadays it is backpacks and laptops. Gone are the days of….

nib pens
blotting paper
bakelite inkwells
stains and clogged nibs
wooden desks with indents and holes

editing: select pens, inverse select, desaturate


nib, fountain pen, inkwell, bakelite, school, akrotiri

I live in the Northern Territory of Australia. It is rugged, remote and ancient. I love to capture moments that we may easily miss or pass by. I need to slow down, live life, notice the little things and breathe….. rather than rush to my next meeting through the artificial world. Beauty is all around us, the more you look, the more you see…
Unless stated, my images are straight from the camera with minimal processing.

  • Hi Cee – thank you! I’ve had this shot for about a month and I’ve been wondering how I can best display it. I’m glad I waited and came back to it and went with the SC. I’m really happy with it.
