Photo Hunt - Fake....

I'm by nature a political blogger, here and my other blog Glass City Jungle, so my first instinct when thinking about today's theme was providing a picture of one of the politicians I've come across that have turned out to be "fake". However, the decision of which one and then the knowledge that most of you who don't live in the Toledo area wouldn't know who that particular person was made me think harder...Then *voila*! I remembered this giant fake phone that was a part of one of the parades I attended last year. As part of what I do for my local political blog I cover most of the parades and festivals where candidates are out there doing their "meet and greet" the voters activities and some of the parades, like this one in Waterville, Ohio have floats from local businesses. So...reach out and touch someone and make sure to visit other Photo Hunt participants this week.

That's sure a big telephone for Godzilla. Nice take. Happy 070707 and a Happy Weekend :) http://crizlai.blogspot.com/2007/07/photo-hunters-fake.html

So...is this a bin collecting phones for a cause? You captured it well seeing the car and house behind so you get an idea of the sizing.

Lisa Renee said...

Good point Criz Lai, Godzilla would be able to use that phone. Betty Jane, it was to promote that local phone company and to show their support for the local community that was holding the parade. Using it to recycle old phones would be a great idea though.

This reminds me that my brother has had a horrible time getting phone and internet service in Germany this year... the telecommunication workers are on strike and then off and nothing seems to work in the apartment he is in for three months. He needs one of these giant phones!

I don't know what you're talking about, this is our current phone - you just photo shop'd it so that it looks bigger then normal.
