19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Coffee and Cigarettes

The photo is about the decisive moment or luck or chance. The photo was not staged. In the beginning, this photo was part of a series of photos taken downtown in the spirit of the street photography and discarded. Just 1 year later, amidst the social isolation of the pandemic, reviewing the photos, I noticed this composition of a girl drinking coffee and the scribbles on the glass wall in the background resemble a cigarette and smoke.
