That pencil shot is perfect. I have a thing for pencils. I love how they look, feel and smell. It always amazes me how different every stroke is with a pencil. Whenever I start a new project I ritualistically sharpen all my pencils for a fresh start.

Many thanks. I wanted to go for simplicity. Interestingly, I found my attempts at a B&W version were unacceptable. Just did not work.

What is the point of the second image?
I really do like the pencil. There is just something about a #5 pencil that mechanical pencils lack. My grandson actually does use a real pencil sometimes. I think he uses a mechanical pencil at school. I could never really use one because I broke the lead all the time. 🙂

The point of the second image is that a screwdriver point is required. 😀
I always found mechanical pencils making a very useful technology more complicated. If God wanted us to use metal pencils then why are there trees ? 😉

I agree with the others: the pencil is a fine image. And the second one I like because I like the composition and I didn’t know what it was until I read your comment above.

Actually that image is of a hinge piece on a cabinet door. I was being a little nuts & bolts for ideas. 😀
