Another one from this weeks still life endeavours. This time the main aim was trying to get some decent real smoke from the pipe - I stuck a bit of joss stick inside and it worked reasonably well. A sod to light though - exposing for the smoke and the bits and pieces was a challenge and I ended up sandwiching two images.
I know I could have faked the smoke but I didn't want to
And they're not really love letters (to spoil the illusion) - actually I've yet to sit down and read the post-cards yet - must do that over the weekend.
