  5. This well known image by photographer Robert Capa was taken seventy years ago today during the invasion of Normandy.

    The soldier in the foreground, PFC Huston Riley Huston Riley , had struggled for thirty minutes under intense fire from his landing craft to the sand of Omaha Beach. He already suffered two bullet wound to the neck . He said , “I guess I was hit 12, 13 times - nothing fatal - helmet, foot, shoe, pack,”

    Capa took 106 pictures of the invasion. Most were destroyed in the lab. Only eleven images survived.

    Huston Riley believed the picture told more than the story of one soldier. he said , “I kind of like to feel it’s a representative of a lot of guys - especially the ones that didn’t make it.”

    Riley died in 2011.

Although no material is clearly superior, with each bearing its share of pros and cons, fountain pen experts tend to prefer gold nibs. Keep in mind that nibs can also be tipped and plated with various materials.
