Fumer

Another scene so perfect it seems staged, but it wasn't.

This time the couple is middle-aged: she has an air of class, seriousness and fashion sophistication, he sports a mane of barely-controlled white hair -- the traditional credential of a French intellectual. This image was snapped just as he lit his cigarette and exhaled his first puff adding the perfect touch to the tableau. Undoubtedly there was more than smoke hanging in the air between them, odds are there was discussion of existentialism too.
