A Traveler and his Cat exploring America.

These are hand-carved wood ink pens.  As I was taking the photo the guy remarked "What good is that doing me?"  Not sure as to what he was getting at I said the light was good on these and thought it would make an interesting photo for my blog.  "Got a business card?  I'll give you a plug."  So here you are.  In need for a stocking stuffer for Christmas?  Check out www.KenEagle.com  or   e-mail him at KenEagle8808@aol.com

Meanwhile this little feller was enjoying the morning sun at the flea market also.

I am finding that this iPhone is taking perfect photos straight out of the camera.  I've run some (including these) through the few edits I do in my photo program and it changes nothing.  So these are just as they come out of the phone except straightening them out. 
I'm not holding the iPhone level.

  7. sounding like your camera is going to become a 'use-to-be' item. How much easier to slip your phone in your pocket when hiking. The hand-carved pens are very creative, were they imported do you think or did the vendor claim to carve them himself?

  8. I don't know what he's selling them for, but World Market has similar ones available also, I considered one for a Christmas gift for someone.
