Not another smoke Harold by ennil Not another smoke Harold by ennil
Hasan Mutevellioglu.

Or my grandfather if you prefer.

He still smokes in an old serbian way. His cigarette dangling from the corner of his lips, attached to a holder.

Not a second passes between each smoke.

He's been smoking since he was a wee lad. Yet no one seems to know exactly when, he's not even sure himself when he first started. He just knows he used to smoke during the war in Macedonia.

His sons say he's been smoking since he's been born.

He doesn't have major health complications.

He only has problems with his teeth, mostly because of the sweet my mother keeps bringing them.

He's never afraid to speak, even on the most sensitive of subjects.

They used to eat a lot carrots during the war apparently.

Thanks to Joey for the title :kiss:

Not another smoke Harold by *ennil This just rocks. I see this as an ad. I see this as editorial. Perfect composition and the DOF chosen just rocks. Great job! Bravo! ( Suggested by MichalTokarczuk and Featured by cweeks )

you know, my grandfather is 94 years old, and he has been smoking since he was 12. for a 94-years old man he's pretty healthy, so we just assume that he's somehow conserved in nicotine.

and the picture is amazing btw!
