Le dernier clope (du condamné) (Weekend Street/Reflections # 7)


Paris, France

This reminded me of a song by Louise Attaque.

 Le dernier clope 

"Le dernier clope du condamné   (The last cigarette of the condemned)

Etait d'l'Amsterdammer roulé

Vous pouvez me croire

Moi j'ai vérifié

Sans filtre

Et peu tassé

Et toute sa dernière heure

Il disait :

"Je préférais la liberté

à  l'abri des regards indiscrets"" - Louise Attaque

Now you can link reflections and/or street photography. 

Please no posed pictures, portraits, animals etc. unless of course there is a reflection.

"Street photography, a genre of photography that records everyday life in a public place. The very publicness of the setting enables the photographer to take candid pictures of strangers, often without their knowledge."

Il disait: "Je préférais la liberté à l'abri des regards indiscrets" mais il ne savait pas qui regardait avec une caméra!

You can see on his face the way he is deeply pulling the nicotine into his lungs that this is a real addition and at this point nothing is more important to him as that cigarette. Good capture. Thanks for hosting, stay safe and have a great weekend.

A fine photograph.

Malyss said...

this portrait is perfectly framed, you could enter in a moment of rest and personal thinking without being seen. Nice catch!
