Woman at Leven's house with languid smoke trail

This is the sort of shot I liked to grab when I was shooting film with my Topcon in the old days, always wanted to be a stringer for Life or Look. Lots of grain, camera shake, high contrast, lacks detail, blown out highlights, but who cares?  It conveys a feeling. Composition and emotion capturing a moment will always trump technical perfection without either.

I dug this out of my archives this afternoon, always liked it.
