Thanks,
These are not water pipes. These are nargila pipes.
Nargila is an oriental smoking tool, including a water pot and a smoke pipe. I'll try to post a nargila shot tommorow.

You made me really curious here and I am already looking forward to find out how such smoking tool looks like.

I got a beautiful looking water pipe as a present from a couple of dear friends, and the top parts of the pipes in your shot looked therefore rather familiar :-)

S maybe the present you recieved is a smoking tool and you didn't notice?
Ok, you convinced me. I'll try to post it tommorow (have to work on it).

Thank you so much for your effort Yitzhak!

It reminds me actually that I pass daily -on the way to work- a little store where they sell smoking tools. Not only should I be thankful for the inspiration to visit that shop and try to make some shots there, but also did I learn that in fact I do own such Nargila pipe!

In Swedish it called vattenpipa and I just translated it to water pipe to describe this beautiful object...

Actually I do feel that the popularity of the Bargila pipe smoking tradition also increases in Stockholm, perhaps mostly because of the restaurants that follow a certain trend.

Kind regards /Edwin

Actually I am a non smoker even when I lived more then twenty years in the Netherlands ;-)

During a bachelor party of a dear friend of mine who lives in Stockholm we had diner in Restaurang Lebanon. There I smoked my first Nargila and I must have been so excited about it that I eventually got one as a present from my colleagues... Eversince I like to preprare the Nargila pipe once in while and share it with friends at home...

Perhaps you should try this social tradition once yourself Yitzhak ;-)
