Havin' A Fag
This woman in Norcia (Italy) was smoking a cigarette on her own. She did not seem very happy with life. The whole scene had something sad about it. The fact that she is close to the edge of the frame and the window with the metal bars enhance the mood of being captive.

interesting shot, and the monochrome helps the image and the feeling of sadness?.... I like it..

if I had to be petty, I might have cropped it slightly, kept her on the left where she is and brought the window with the bars closer to the viewer.. 

 I have to agree with Andrew on the crop.

I think this will give an answer to Rob as well.

The B/W  does give a  "MISERABLE" feeling to it Wink

 Love the melenchony feel Ruud, but I kind of wish I could see where she was looking - since she is right near the edge of the frame and gazing out of shot it kind of forces the eye to leave the frame and the imagination to take over (not entirely a bad thing mind!)
