The boys are asleep

There are signs for Savills/Hamilton Osborn King and Lisney on the top floor directly above […]

Cu Na Mara

Marlboro

Marlboro Clothes pegs in a textured cloth bag, Marlboro branded plastic bag, 1993 calendar. Shot at my parents-in-law house. I love the texture of the clothes bag, but that wasn’t what attracted my attention at first. It was the calendar and the Marlboro bag. Since cigarette advertising is now banned it’s unusual to see any […]
