No More Words, 2013
He is verwee verwee serious about his smoking.
Ha, ha, yes.
Thank you so much.
I like your smokers!
Thanks so much! I like them too and was one for many years.
Love this composition.
Thanks very much, Elena. Really glad you like it.
There is something very funny to me about all of straight up, vertical columns, and then his cigarette, which is a column in its own way, sort of rebelling, going a different direction, in a quiet “screw you” sort of “no more words” kind gesture. I like it very much.
My reading doesn’t, however, work with the Anna Calvi lyrics, I realize….
I prefer your reading – I just pinched the title from Anna Calvi (who I think is really great).
That’s a great interpretation – I love that! Thanks very much, Melanie – I’m really glad you like it.
Fantastic. Caught between the folds of intrigue and danger.
Thanks very much, Terry. Yes, it definitely looks that way.
I’m glad the picture doesn’t capture the smell 😀
You’re not a fan of cigarettes than, Cardinal?
Superbe prise de vue !
A great image again… I see a ‘Secretive Smokers’ theme developing here! 🙂
🙂 Thanks very much, Richard! It’s an idea…
Thanks very much, Bethan. Glad you like it.
It is interesting that an activity, such as smoking, which was chic at one time, is now completely the opposite. Just in my lifetime the view on smoking has changed so much. Good capture!
Thanks very much, Jennifer. Yes, it’s totally turned around – over here I think it’s the legislation that did for it by forcing smokers out of buildings and into car parks etc – huddling together for a smoke is maybe a bit too much like being back at school. I used to love smoking (40 per day), but haven’t done for over a decade.
a fine story; an interesting photograph.
Thanks very much, Shimon.
Wonderful, Richard, a great example of less being more.
Thanks very much, Ashley! I see those pillars almost every day, so it was nice to put them to some use.
You caught the desperation so well!
Ha, ha, that would have been me a couple of years ago!
Sometimes “No More Words” is the way it is with ciggies… if the G.O. is exasperated, off he goes for a calming smoke… best not to talk to him then.
Yes, indeed. There used to be a comedy show here, where one of the characters excuses for not answering anything or doing anything was, “I’m ‘aving a fag!”
Very nicely framed. There is a very surreptitious feel to this, but I suspect it probably feels like that sometimes for a lot of smokers these days.
Thanks a lot. Yes, I was sneaky – yes, they’re like an endangered species now…
