In a doorway smoking

From artist C215, this image was found on a doorway near a workshop or garage of some sort just a the northern edge of the Raval. I’ve always been a fan of the color blue, so this one immediately caught my attention. It wasn’t until later that I noticed the phrase “It gives me a tingle” running down the side of the picture. The phrase most likely was placed there separately, though from my smoking days I do remember cloves and menthols inducing a rather creepy tingle. The cloves a tingle and numbness in the mouth and the menthols more of a deep respiratory tingle, neither of which are probably very good for longevity. It’s fitting that this image is found in a doorway, as most smokers nowadays have been condemned to standing in doorways. Though I quit nearly three years ago, I do miss the smoky little bars and cafes that were such an important part of the landscape here.
