Smoke

 on 


This photograph illustrates the air we have to breath while walking through the streets of Sydney courtesy of smokers. Every few meters people are having a cigarette and in most cases we do not see the smoke even if we may smell its choking fumes. It takes a big of sunlight on the right angle to show how much smoke a person exhales in a single puff.

PS: I know cigarettes are legal but they carry a lot of health warnings about the consequences of smoking them, so where is my right not to have to inhale this hazardous substance?

    if you concentrate abit on the smoke…and blur your eyes out, the girl in the background make the smoke look like a little angel floating and lookin at the smoker
    if you just try to see it as a whole, am i right?

    Yep, that’s pretty much the situation I have to endure every morning, lunch time & after work in Kent street. The only difference is, in Kent street they smoke in packs. Sometimes up to 15 people in one group. I really really am annoyed by it & wish I had some rights not to endure this every day!

    Wow, what a powerful photo and commentary. I totally agree, it’s terrible that we non-smokers have to breathe in the toxic smoke from cigarette smokers. I used to work in Washington DC and used to go for lunchtime walks but quit as I realized breathing in the second hand smoke, not to mention car exhaust, was more harmful than the walk was helpful. Luckily I now live in California where there are strict smoking laws and I can enjoy a mid-day walk.
