Pens And Notebooks


Another shot of an elevater. Taken on the 9th of January 2007 with a Nikon D200 and a 18-35mm lens in Hsinchu, Taiwan. Part of the Lakeshore Elevator Series.

I got this idea a few weeks back.

It’s a combination of low tech and high tech.

Blogging old style and then using new style to showcase it.

I got thinking about this whole thing over the last few days, because I had purchased a few notebooks that I found really interesting. They have this magnetic clasp on one side ot protect the book from any unpredictable events.

I went back to ESLite again today to purchase some pens. I love buying pens, especially drawing pens. It’s a whole process, when you know what you need and finding something suitable.

Today, I had quickly found the type I wanted. Faber-Castell Ecco Pigment. I got 0.5, 0.3 and 0.1mm. I then debated if I should get a set of Staedler tri point pens. They were very nice and had some metallic colors. At the end, I dscovered the Pentel Tradios that I really like.


Because they are almost like fountain pens, and I like fountain pens. I have a few, but I am not planning on taking them with me to Thailand. I used to write the original Memoirs On A Rainy Day with those fountain pens, one in particular, an old silver and gold Parker. But today, I settled for these in three colors.

From the Pentel website, which for some reason doesn’t have a valide security certificate.

A fountain pen with the perfect combination of style and performance. A flexible plastic nib creates a variety of line widths, from thick to thin, depending on the angle and pressure applied. The innovative, see-thru free-flowing system delivers a consistent ink flow for smooth, effortless writing from the first stroke to the last. The ergonomic barrel design provides added comfort and writing control. Black ink. Uses Pentel’s MLJ20 refill in black.
