Wordless Wednesday

WHAT'S THAT?

In London a giant cigarette butt stands in Trafalgar Square as part of a campaign against litter, but not against smoking?

In California most will look down their noses if you smoke. It does stink and I often wonder how I smoked for so long. I'm so glad I don't anymore. Have a great WW Teach. :)

Butt it should be against smoking too right:)?

Kostas said...

Splendid Odd shot!
Intelligent publicity, and very good corner that you took the photograph!

Art, imitating life. Perhaps thumbing its' nose at it?

Julia Smith said...

Strangely, I'm sure it will make some smokers reach for their packs of ciggies. If I saw a towering chocolate bar...

Janet said...

Eeeewwww!!

Did you take the photo in your header? It's very nice.

I know I need to quit!

I was thinking that maybe it was one of those crazy commercials where the people do stuff outside the offices of the "big tobacco companies".

HUH! That's funny.... it should have a sign stating "Cigarette butts causes lung cancer in cockroaches"

p/s: Elaine Ling are both in my Identity card :) Born with it, live with it, die with it LOL!

Gattina said...

I haven't seen that, lol ! I suppose it's for litter.

Amor said...

Too bad I haven't seen it when we were in London,interesting one!It's odd,it should be for anti smoking,but still with a great purpose,that would be fine.

My WW entry is up too.

Bobbie said...

Fabulous, Mary. If that doesn't capture attention, I don't know what would.

Happy WW.

Cheerio said...

Why didn't they put up against smoking too? I wonder.

Anna said...

Bring it on! It is never too late to join Project Yellow! I look forward to seeing your images!

Take care!

Great "installation" - they even did a perfect job on the burnt look at the bottom!

Regina said...

Utah Mommy said...

What an unusual shot ... with an even more odd purpose! Thanks for sharing today.

I've got TWO (almost) Wordless Wednesday posts up finally ... one on each of my blogs ... using the One Single Impression prompt for Week 6: Stranded

Hugs and blessings,

Littering but not Smoking, sort of figures....many British are very dependent on tobacco. Awesome picture, where do you get these? Do you travel? If so drop me an email please, I have a wee favor. My WW post is up for the week.

Jenty said...

LOL, is that the latest annual statue? Or an extra one just for a short period of time.

the feathered nest said...

Fabulous photo and so interesting that it would be for a anti littering campaign?

I've been wondering how the new smoking ban here in Chicago would effect litter problems. After all, all those people who normally smoke inside the bars, clubs, restaurants, etc, will now be standing outside...will they retaliate by throwing butts all over the place?

Princess said...

Great shot! I guess if there is nothing to smoke, then there is nothing to throw (or should it be the other way around).
Great image.

Travis said...

Maybe they should have a giant banana peel next to it too.

Hehehehehe!

That's a huge cigarette butt and hope it effectively served its message.
