Photo was taken in Hamburg . I noticed this guy walking on the streets while i was taking a photo in hamburg so i followed him. He stopped just across the central train station i went and asked him if i can take a photo iwhile i was reaching for some change to give him.

he said he doesn't want any change

all he said was : ''I want to smoke'' while he was scratching his skin all over his arms.

so i went to some guy in the train station just across the street and asked him for a few cigarettes ...of course ive paid for them.

i took the photo and i gave this guy 6 cigarettes( it was all that guy gave me )...thats why i name the photo like this. I know this guy deserves more than 6 cigarettes but thats all he wanted from me.

i hope you will like the photo

I know this man. I photgraphed him by a big sport store. My photo is not as brilliant as yours! TOP.

HI Daniel,
great shot!! I wish that I had been there....and made it...

Just a tiny idea: perhaps this strong photo gets even more when you darken the background. Eyes first look for the lights and then pass around to the subject itself...just try it...

regards Berthold
