This was a photograph I took in 2012, when I was still fresh and green in the craft.
I remember being stuck in a horrendous traffic on a highway out of town. Fortunately, I had the camera with me when this truck slowly moved beside me. An arm stretched out with a proud stick of cigarette in between the point and middle finger.
Taking a photo was a no brainer.
Quite the surprise I got when I learned that it was considered to be one of the stronger entries in the 1st Lensculture Street Photography Awards.
This is one of my first street photos that generated more than its fair share of attention back then.
(“Spectre Mills” is photo #199.)
