My First Pix (Emperor, Gregg)

This is pretty clumsy iPhone photography, but FPN is a safe place :) Namiki Emperor Broad Point, two inks, opening stanza from the opening poem of "Alice in Wonderland." The paper is too absorbent (I've got some Clairefontaine on the way), and I made a couple of ink boo-boos and Gregg boo-boos, but I'm just gaga about this outrageous pen (the Emperor is an *outrage*, I tell you) and I can't resist sharing.

Took me a while to figure out how to rotate these pix (tried Shotwell, Inkscape, and finally Gimp did it). So, here, a few reboots and a night's sleep later, are the pens :)

The pix suffered a bit of graininess in my ham-fisted, size-reducing, image processing. The lacquer on the vermilion emperor is absolutely perfectly dead smooth the way Pilot would insist, not lumpy and grainy the way it looks in the pix. I'm learning by doing :)

I am very lucky! The same wife who gave me the MB 149 in 1974, and no pens since then, blew my mind with these two Emperors!
