What a drag.

By paul_indigo  
After smoking normal cigarettes he gave an extra fine super light cigarette a try.

I grabbed the shot. Split second timing. There's something very satisfying about capturing a genuine moment, not setup, not posed, hardly composed. It's there and then its gone. If you miss it, you miss it.

Yeah, that's the look you give as your lungs collapse under the strain of trying to get a decent drag!

...Apparantly! ;o)

Great timing Paul!
