Hi Selvin!

I drop in every once in a great while just to see who's doing what. I particularly like to see the work of new members, and that was the case here.

I really like the darkness of this photo. It seems appropriate to the hand-rolled cigarette and the well-used Zippo. Additionally, the composition is excellent.
