I don´t know very many smokers, but they keep appearing in photos in the Flickr pool, and so here is a little compilation of Londoners with cigarettes to go with that shot up there that I took in Shoreditch a few weeks ago.

After living in the smoker friendly country of Georgia the past 16months or so, where it is frowned upon for women to be seen smoking in the street, its funny to think of the UK where the only place to smoke is outside. Here it is the opposite! Great pictures.
I often find myself shooting pics of smokers. They make good subjects because they’re sitting or standing and looking moody and meditative, often by themselves, and often against an interesting wall or in a shadowy doorway. The fact that they’re fairly stationary helps too!
If you ever need a cigar smoker model, I’ll be happy to pose for you: http://andreasmoser.wordpress.com/2011/10/29/smoking-cigars/
Lol, thanks for the link! You never know 🙂
