bathroom photography
bathroom/restroom/washroom/loo/lavatory/john/comfort station

not the best example of my work, but when you're confined to uploading on a daily basis, i'll have to learn to settle once in awhile. right?

i commented awhile back that bathroom self-portraits/portraits seem to be a favorite in the photography community. almost up there with arm length pictures taken for online profiles like myspace. i felt it was time; my photography had earned its place among the very best that have collections of these lavatory vignettes.

now that i have joined the club, i urge you to do the same...cause lets admit it, you're not a real photographer unless you have at least one shot taken in the loo. =)

i was obviously in a playful mood when i thought all this nonsense up, and to take it a step further i started a group that i would love for you to join.

if you ever catch yourself in a playful mood too:

i had a lot of fun doing this series. if you get a chance, take a look at my photo stream to see the others. i would post them here, but i don't know if that's breaking the rules (only one a day right?).

this series is just another example of a spontaneous, eccentric idea, probably impoverished by what appears to be a strong sense of vanity...i am working on getting models.

hope everyone's new year has been pleasant so far.

You are going to be fun, aren't you? ;-)

Great bathroom chat there - have never done that - never the nude either... I think... Now you got me all thinking about further experiments.
It is not fair though - your are that pretty that any photo you take of yourself must be good.

Love the series - went and took a look at your photo streem... Cool idea as well... and I am amazed as to how beautiful and not at all pornographic you managed to make them - and I mean that as compliment.... ok ok stopping the rambling now. ;-)

I love the shots and the ideas.
And hey, no problem with any vanity :)
My diary is about myself mostly too (am doing the 365 days project) so I have to shoot a shot of my boring self every day anyway ;)
I need to get out more with my cam again though, sigh ;)
I love that clone shot - beautiful!
(Thanks to Samrag for pointing you out to me :)!

What interesting new people one meets on this group, and the best is, we are going to interact on a daily basis, and there is so much to look forward to. You have the most interesting, deep eyes, like there's a lot going on behind them.

Regarding bathroom pics, I have noticed a sub-genre, which is sitting-down bathroom pics, not all as shocking as it sounds (although some are..), like this one

Regarding vanity, don't apologise, I think we all forgive you and enjoy what you are doing. I visited your stream, loved the library series, and others, all tastefully done, and your model is devastatingly attractive.

re: January 2

I'm pretty sure it's a great example of your work. I'm just kind of stunned looking at it.

Sigh. I now I have go out and find an artsy bathroom to take a self-portrait in.

And not the one on campus. Because there's always people there. And that may just be weird.


I'm glad you've started posting. Seems like you have fun with a camera.

re: January 3

So did someone send invites to all the pretty / risque ladies?

I think it's a good thing I don't have my laptop. Me looking at some people's photos in class would have the people behind me commenting.

Or peeping. ;)

re: AHHH! No more pictures?

Your guest... Gah! Guests! Forget them. We're more important. ;)

Eagerly awaiting your return. :)
