Please pass on my congratulations to your photographer who took the picture of a ballerina smoking in a cafe in Zagreb, Croatia. As a former dancer, and life-ling smoker, i found it a very piquant image, beautifully shot with just the right amount of absurdity — and of course i emailed it to all my dancer friends!
Thanks for noticing: GBU Editor
