This 365 day project features photos that include words (actual or implied),
text, books,
writing, letters and numbers, signs, libraries, and.... well, you get the idea.


day 35 of 365

The pen may be mightier than the sword, but these days I'm not sure if it beats the keyboard.

I have always been in love with all things to do with writing: fountain pens and thick blank notebooks, creamy sheets of letter paper, the smell of Ticonderoga pencils in the morning. I often practiced printing for hours on end until my letter Ys had the perfect tail or until my handwriting looked like the lettering on the back of an Eagles album.

But now my thoughts respond to the keyboard instead. Much as I mourn the lost art of handwriting, the words pour out of me at the speed of light, and only the keyboard can keep up.

So, the love for the pen lives on, but the keyboard is my weapon of choice.


  1. Excellent photograph, I agree with you that old saying needs to be rewritten I think. The keyboard is mightier than the sword, or should that be the wireless keyboard!?


  2. I responded on Flickr, but I have to tell you I really do love that picture. Plus I'm awaiting news about an emergency extraction, so blogging is keeping me from freaking.

  3. Your choice of photos, and magnificent photos I must say, and your words are amazing! I too am a pen, paper, keyboard, and word lover although the photography end I have immense work to do in that department... but what the heck, I have fun!
