smell of cigarettes

Still out there with the coffee stains / And putting miles on shoes / Can’t escape the smell of cigarettes / Still living out these American late night blues (Son Volt)

    Kännchen oder Tasse?
    Harte frage!
    Vielleicht steht ja im Kaffeesatz, die Antwort oder Zukunft, ….

  3. The simplicity of this composition speaks volumes. The black and white tones are so perfect for this shot. The lines from the shape of the table contrast nicely with the curves in the cup and saucer.

    Danke für diese schlichte Schönheit, Fritsch!

    Wunderschön. Diese Ruhe die das Bild ausstrahlt. Mir vermittelt es ein angenehm lässiges, etwas melancholisch-nachdenkliches Lebensgefühl. Wie so oft bei dir ein großartiges Bild.

    marvellous b/w as always. love the contrast , the light and the textures of the table. eventhough you’ve broken the rules of composition, i just think this is an exceptional image. =). but remember, smoking is bad for you my friend.

    what i like here (apart from the tones and textures) are the mysterious keys poking into the frame; makes you wonder what’s all going on and where the posession of those keys would lead you to?

    I love the simplicity here. There is nothing excessive in the photo, all in it’s place, and the light is just perfect.
    Looks like the beginning of a great morning :)

    nicely lit and composed!

    I like the noir feeling to this. Effective use of light and shadows complimented nicely by the texture of the wooden table. Conveys a mellow atmosphere, especially with the keys slightly visible to the right, the sense of a simple break after a day’s of hard work. Nicely seen, bro.

    Fantastic image!

    Unique eye:) – A lovely monotone depiction, wonderfully framed!

    Die Stimmung von kalt gewordenem Kaffee-Rest, zwischen bleiben und Aufbruch, zwischen Resignation und halb-überzeugtem Gehen kommt für mich prima rüber.
