This was shot in response to a photo prompt from the Flickr group Our Daily Challenge. The prompt today is “a writing or drawing instrument.”
I shot this in monochrome. There was no post-camera processing.
I learned one thing from attempting to take a picture of my own hand. If I want to use the camera on myself, I need to shut the cats in another room first. More than half the pictures I took were of paws or whiskers instead of pens. This was evidently a very curious activity I engaged in.
