I’m a stationery addict.

There I said it.

There’s comfort in knowing that I’m not alone.

For this week’s #RegularRandom I decided to spend 5 minutes with my new Zebra Mildliners – (from http://www.bunbougu.com.au) these are seriously cool Japanese pens. I don’t know why Japan has such awesome stationery, but there it is. It is so.

If you’d like to join the RegularRandom challenge, here’s how:

Choose an object or a scene and spend just five minute shooting it from as many angles as you can. Look at the way the light interacts with the object, or look at what comes into or moves out of the frame.

It’s only 5 minutes! Enjoy it!

These are my Zebra Mildliners. They’re like the highlighters we all had at school, but in pretty pastel (mild) colours. They’re also double-ended – one end is a thick wedge for highlighting, the other is a finer point for writing.

Do you love stationery as much as me? I’m pretty sure it’s not just me.

If you decide to join in, just grab a camera or your phone and snap away for five minutes. Then, write a post with your images and tag it #regularrandom and link back to this post so we can find you.

Happy snapping

  1. I couldn’t have arranged them so precisely if I’d had 5 hours. I love the way you’ve done this. I love the colours, the compositions, the Depth of Field. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

  2. I too am a stationery addict, even if I do have trouble spelling it. I try so hard to operate a paperless life, but it doesn’t work. These pens look fabulous and you’ve done a great product shoot. I like the messages at the end and the portrait lineup featuring the caps particularly. Great colours too.

      1. PS I, of course, whizzed off to look at bullet journaling, only to discover that I almost invented it! I’ve been doing something very like this for donkeys ages. However a bit of fine tuning wouldn’t go astray, nor would colour-coding, so I owe you yet again.

        1. LOL that’s fabulous. It’s such a simple system, really straightforward but I think it’s about be discipline of sticking it with it. Oh yes, colour coding! These pens are perfect for that lol.


I'd love to hear from you!
