Smokaz!

I like taking “photo” photos, and have done so for 25 years, but very often shots of worst don’t coincide with really nice pics. It’s a different genre and mindset. So it’s nice to get a worst and a nice photo combining with this one submitted by Perth photographer Robert Frith. Robert says…

“The smoke den at Perth International Airport. It’s for employees only (joe public smokers should keep decorating the main entries).”

The milk crates seem to show that not all smokers are safely locked down before they puff. Or maybe they are for the guards to sit on.

smokazit reminds me of the desolation of the smoking area at the vanished worst Biggest Bingo covered some time ago.

BTW if people do wish to see my real photos, start HERE.

    I am thinking the smoking area is actually outside the shed along the designated area of the wall.

    I am worried about the lone crate smoker..the one that sits by himself everyday, the silent puffer….ominous signs of a serial smoker.

    • Those eaves might make it uncomfortable in rain. Robert says had a keyed entry.

        There is (seemingly) no ventilation…but hey, but who cares. I wouldn’t mind if a few of those airport Gestapo customs guys suffered smoke inhalation once in a while.

          Eaves nothing… the structure is basically a very short chimney affording a modicum of protection from winter’s blustery nor’westers. The dedicated smoka would sit on a bench inside the chimney in bleak conditions and bask outside in the warmer months (like May)
          The milk crates may be headstones for the departed.

    I agree TLA, subject matter aside that is a great shot.
    I can only hope to measure up now I have, just minutes ago, purchased a camera in order to ensure never again will I miss the opportunity I did on the way into Freo this morn – Bumper sticker simply saying,

    Life.Love.Hamster.

      Shazza, you have to learn from other’s mistakes. That sort of comment is like a knife in the heart to TLA… best not tell him at all when you miss a worst. He’s wandering the streets as we speak shouting, ‘For the love of god, show me the fucking hampster sticker!’

      That’s bad enough, but carrying a Samuri sword was a bit stupid. Be interesting to see how many shots it takes before the rozzers land a taser on the skinny bugger.

        Pity the Rozzers are digital Encrypted – though if he did it in York or Merridan where it’s still analogue and I can pick up the repeater in Gin Gin….

        But will he appoint La Chong to be his defence lawyer ? :-)
