I am certain that if you put the pictures side by side, at the end, it will be quite artistic.

I am as well. One of the things I like most about it is the high quality of the photography and the lighting. Look at the textures of the wall and the label on the bottle. Perhaps we could hear from the OP about the camera and lens being used while we are waiting for the next refill. :)

Three refills and we're on the third page of this topic. At this rate, it will be awhile. 

 

I couldn't wait; I got out my bottle of Tsuki-Yo and poured it down the sink. Now I know how this topic will end.

Please don't post a picture and spoil the ending for us! :-) This is better than any reality tv program out there.

Ah, camera and lens...

Take a wild guess (FYI: not the cheapest one, not the most expensive. Must've been like €500 or so when I bought it like 2years ago)...

So it's not Russian and it's not Leica or Hasselblad. Nikon or Canon, perhaps. Are you using a tripod and shutter release cable? These photos are very sharp, and I would have guessed Leica.

Well, these weeks've been slow. First I had a few pens taken care of by Fountainbel. So filled those up first (none of them with Tsuki-Yo, I have strict combinations pen-inkt). Then I just finish a week of holiday (so little writing). 

In normal times, the Vac700 (1.1 stub) with Tsuki-Yo is one of my 3 pens I take to work ( the two others vary). And, in normal conditions, a 1.5 stub Lamy vista with Tsuki-Yo is my desk pen at home. That'll have to wait a few more days till the Lamy Studio runs out of Diamine Grape.

So normally, this should be the slowest Tsuki-Yo weeks of the year.  :wacko:

Very impressive. Just shows you what can be achieved when you eliminate camera shake.

I've decided it was a mistake. I went to fill a pen with Tsuki-Yo and realized I had none, just a nice, empty bottle. (Don't worry, no photos!) So I had to order a new bottle. Patience, I need more Patience!

Of course, 'cause you're a doc and docs always need more patients.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
