The concept for this photo came from the mind of my good friend Dylan Espinoza. You can read other things that originate in that brain of his at: I took this photo using a Canon Digital Rebel XTi. No photoshop or digital manipulation has taken place in any way.

    could make it into a sculpture too, nice.

  • I would love to see that. Then we could make a short video in which we could put another cigarette out in it. That would be fun.
