Something Wicked This Way Comes - #168


I quit almost a year ago and 100% think it's great not smoking - so why does this look so cool? Damn those clever marketing people...

What a strangely attractive idea! Having smoked my last cigarette about 50 yrs ago (I must have been under age) I suddenly find myself fancying a cigar. By the way....that seems to be a superb lens on your camera! What is it?

To me it actually looks rather dirty.

You see this pristine looking guy - white shining clothes, immaculate beard, clear skin. And you see this clear(ish - probably dusty!) sky and empty, pristine sand.

Then there's this thing hanging out of his mouth that you know is going to end up on the sand and foul it.

And it reduces him from this image of Bedouin nobility and dignity to something kind of trailer trash. Suddenly, he's not noble, he's just dirty and low-grade looking. Sad.

Love this pic! I think he looks a little mysterious. Love your site Bluey! Greetings, from Kuwait!
