That is the anti-Virginia slims picture.We haven't come a long way, baby. No smoking or reading in the house, Missy!
Betty, that is a powerful image.

lbr -- It's funny, I think it was a man smoking (I got a better look at him than just what you see in the photo...)

tut-tut said...

How great is that?! I'd buy a print of that!

Betty C. said...

I just can't stay wordless here!

I saw this scene from my hotel window in Paris when I was there a few weeks back -- it was across the street from my room.

Sally Crawford said...

Yeah, I feel like seconding that print idea. What are they going for, Betty?

PS: I love the subtext: 'I may be smoking but I am an intellectual so there'.

Tinsie said...

Great shot :-)))

That could be my husband - he always does things like that!

Randal Graves said...

Nice shot! At least it was ashes being dropped and not the contents of a garbage can. :)

The Duchess said...

Great photo! Does that count as smoking outside? lol

Mimi from French Kitchen said...

Until I enlarged the photo I thought it was a cloistered nun in an old habit throwing something out of a window.
