Cigar Feet

Thursday, September 8, 2011 at 2:00am By

Any fine, hand-made cigar has two ends, the “cap” at the top which you cut and put in your mouth, and the “foot” at the bottom where you light it. I always take a look at the foot when buying or smoking a cigar, but the other day was the first time that I really sat down and inspected one with a magnifying glass. It was only then that I truly saw the mélange of colors and textures and patterns that are in a fine cigar. It was also then that I knew I wanted to photograph a variety of cigar feet to capture the beauty in them.

    the odd cigar lover is getting harder to find nowadays so thank you for this interesting look.these would actually look nice enlarged, framed and hung on a wall.

    have you done any Padrons?

    Have you considered selling these as prints? Seems like the kind of thing a lover of both cigars and art would love to have framed up on their wall.

  3. Great and inspiring pics!

    cool series – i went to a cigar factory in cuba and they explained about how the different leaves were used in different quantities and combinations for the different cigars.

    Excellent! Bravo!
    I've been a cigar smoker for 30yrs. My Grandfather and Father enjoyed fine cigars.
    My Grandfather lived in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. in the 50s & 60s and smoked Cohiba's directly from Cuba. Lucky Dog!!!!
    I am in the process of designing a new top for an old coffee table of which I have saved cigar wrappers for for years. Now I know what it is I have been lacking in design. Thanks for the idea!!
    PS: I have used Convert for a number of years for Physics and Cosmology study.
