For years I’ve been looking, on and off, for pen rests that I can use in my pen photography. I was aware that Chinese chopstick rests were my best bet, but I didn’t see any that appealed to me. Those very minimalistic metal ones that you see just didn’t do anything for me.
Last week I spotted these on sale in eBay. I bid for them and was successful. They are perfect, shapely and colourful, with a little story in them as well.
There’s a fearsome dragon there and what I take to be a squid. It might be that the dragon is about to eat the squid but it doesn’t really look like that. It looks like they are in friendly conversation. It would be nice to know what they’re talking about but I don’t suppose I ever will.
