Q:you have an exquisite eye for quiet, understated, timeless beauty that is incredibly grounding for an artist like myself.
my one wish is that you would stop running images that glamorize smoking. i can't think of anything less glamourous that watching a loved one die a slow painful death because as an insecure teenager they bought into the myth that smoking would make them cool.
smoking destroys both youth and beauty, and replaces them with illness and decay. there is simply nothing cool about it . . .
Too bad you’re an Anon…This is the most profound comment or statement I’ve gotten so far…I totally agree with your assisment on smoking…I don’t smoke at all, with the exception of a good cigar with a very good single malt.
I lost both my parents when I was very young (12 & 14 years old). Both were smokers and their passing was do to smoking in some way.
I don’t post people smoking to glamorize it at all…My thing has always been about composition of the image…The smoke adds another layer to the composition in the form of translucency which I love…Much like rain or snow or even glass.
Thank you, John
