A short message every now and then.... (2) by 

I have to admit, I hardly write with a pen these days… I’m one of those who is addicted to his/her computer keyboard…. But every now and then, for example before Christmas, New Year or a Birthday I’ll send a handwritten postcard or a short letter. On these rare occasions I’ll use a fountain pen to write with…. Sometimes even this one….

Canon EOS 60D, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM

Bob is especially interested in ‘the soul’ of the things without one, the expressiveness of the lifeless, the essence of material….. macro photography, ‘things’ in particular.
‘Things’ don’t have the tendency to walk away, to fly, to move, to have a meaning, are always present and do not complex, have patience, don’t nag etc. etc….. As Bob wrote in his profile… “I like it simple!”…
