Thomas RosenBoom Lights one Up

These days it’s hard to find somebody who doesn’t mind having his picture taken while smoking. It’s always the same, we walk outside for the photo, subject immediately lights one up. I like how it looks, the smoke twirling up from the mouth, the look in the eyes. I ask “can I make a picture like that” and almost always I get a polite refusal. Apparently it’s not done anymore. But maybe writers are the last real rebels…
