As of late -- a distraction

Added on by John Sturr.

 I’ve been nicely distracted these last few months - not with films, or new camera bodies - but - with the discovery, or re-discovery of pencils; fine pencils.  They are American made, Japanese made, Vietnam made, Korean made, Chinese made, and so on, and so on…

This started with the find of the “Blackwing” series remade by Cal Cedar company of California - they brought back the 602 and introduced the “Blackwing”, and “Pearl”, also.  The discovery of these writers at a local shop has brought on the madness, now.

I’ve now discovered many brands and types of pencils and equipment / sharpeners.  It’s been a pretty fun journey - finding that top 5% - of anything - which can be very interesting.
