A man reclining in a chair, totally relaxed looking up at the ceiling and blowing smoke circles upwards. He holds a pipe in his hand, and a newspaper in the other which he has flopped onto the ground; a bottle of port on the table and his shoes kicked off in front of him. [&] A man sitting in a chair looking exhausted and dishevelled; ageing fast. He holds a pipe in one hand; his wife stands in the doorway looking back at him.
