I try not to judge. I’m a former smoker myself. When I see a scene like this I automatically thinks, “don’t do it.” I know there is no hope though. the odds that this young beautiful woman will turn into this old desiccated smoker are pretty high. When and how she quits is up to her.
I carry a camera where ever I go. I prefer urban ugly. In this case, I’m calling it ugly and adding it to my not so buena project.
This is an HDR black and white photo. I used the 3 shot handheld bracketed sequence on my Nikon D300.
