Well spotted - interesting geometry!

Could also be titled "Urban Weeds" (*)

* "weed" is a slang word meaning an ordinary cigarette, now more widely used to mean something else.

Very interesting, clean shot, Akira. Interesting to see brand names like "Hope" and "Peace" :)

Thanks, Elsa!

Anirban, ironically these two are the strongest ones among the Japanese cigarettes!

Thanks, Armando.  The curved line is a part of the ornament on the wall usung white LEDs.

How ironic indeed.
The other brand (Stix) would be better suited as it evokes the entrance of hell...
I like the shot very much Akira!

Thanks, Paco!

Olivier, thanks.  The cigarettes could open the door to hell anyway.  (oh, I miss that devil's emoticon!)

Somewhat belated follow up, but I think it's worthwhile...

The curved line gives the ilusion that the cigarette box lines are not straight.
Nice shot!

Thanks, Aguinaldo.  Actually the rectangular show window suffers from a little bit of perspective distortion...

#1 was extremely well seen and captured. It appeals directly to the senses.
