This sort of scene in a pub or a cafe used to be common place, but now with more smoking bans coming in, they are becoming a thing of the past,
This time next year I believe all pubs in England will be non smoking, which in my eyes is a good thing, this isnt a pretty picture, but i was attracted to take the shot, the randomness attracted me to it.
Just looking at the picture again though I am thinking, if this sort of thing is left in an ashtray, what is left inside your body after smoking?
Another shot taken with my phone camera, in the Bookmaker pub in Redcar.
Anyway I will leave you to decide if the shot is worthy of a comment, with this picture I am trying to be controversial, I hope it is working.
Thanks for looking, leave a comment, good or bad I want to hear other peoples views.

Hmmmm this is..... ummm...interesting....
This really is a view I would NEVER even THINK about noticing, good thing all people aren't just like me!
Ok first things first, this photo really doesn't tell me anything about the world. It could even be in my local pub, maybe this fits better on Treklens?
As for the photo in it self, it looks kind of good.
Maybe the camera phone was held a bit too close to the target, at least when I take photos with my W800i they tend to get very blurred and grainy when taken too close.
The resolution of these cameras aren't the best either so an expanded view woulden't be perfect. In this case the pixels are very much visible.
In addition I would like to add that the photo could proparbly do with a little colour adjustment.
Just a little on the levels or a little saturation.
