Week 7 – Submitted shot, Slow Death

Right, last minute change of plan again. Sat there having a fag after being told off by the dentist this morning for being a smoker. Whilst pondering that, I realised that smoking is pretty much a slow everything, a slow killer, a slow but steady drain on my wallet, a slow but sure way of losing teeth and so on. So…. Out came the flash and there we have it. If I were to actually have planned this rather than it being a spur of the moment thing I think I would have cleaned the ashtray. Might also have shot a bit wider and used another flash to highlight the smoke more (though that would have presented challenges with the background which I again kept dark by using a small aperture in a not very well lit room (the kitchen). Not as happy with this as previous weeks but it’s not an iphone picture of a traffic jam !!
