The Spot to Shoot: Restrooms All Over the World

14

I have bathrooms addiction. Haha. There.. I've said it. Nope! It's not due to weak bladder. But something better.

If Satomi loves to shoot her cat, Lomo_bernis his new born baby, Panelomo his beloved wife, and Cinzinc who seems to hunt bajaj, the next question will be this. Where’s your favorite place to shoot? It can be night markets, playlands, parks. It took me a while to realize this. But I love to shoot in the restroom. Almost every roll of mine has at least one bathroom scene.

Admit it. It’s nice taking pictures in the bathroom:

1. All the mirrors. All the reflections. oh my. I feel like a Snow White, only cooler, with a Lomo LC-A.
2. Self portraits. I can’t get enough of those.
3. When you do (emm.. pardon) your business in some strange antique restrooms and get nothing else to do until you finish, well, you can always shoot. I’ve done this. Comics and magazines are usually good company. Your camera can be too.
4. I love antique, minimalist, classic, state of the art bathrooms. Whenever I see one, I always shoot.
5. There are times you actually feel you look quite okay today and can’t help it but to just steal one picture of yourself, don’t you? Do it in the bathroom! :p

So.. Whenever you have the urge to release yourself, just do it with a camera. : D Cheerz.

So.. Whenever you have the urge to release yourself, just do it with a camera. : D Cheerz.Anybody care to say where your favorite place in town to shoot is?

    I have to admit, I was quizzical when I saw the title of the post, but these are really nice photos! 5, 6, and 7 are all particularly lovely.

    Me? I shoot the sea. I have so many damned photos of the beach, or the sea, or off the cliffs. I just can't resist. I remember showing one friend through a supersampler roll so she could see what it did, and being a bit embarrassed when there were 6 consecutive shots of the waves...

    haha, finally someone who shares my weird urge to photograph in bathrooms! the thing is, with digital cameras getting smaller and smaller, my smena symbol suddenly seems more conspicious (my digital camera is also visible). add that to the fact that most public bathrooms have people in them and most people will think i'm some kind of pervert if i photograph them in a bathroom...

    ...or photograph anything at all.

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    My Day in Analogue: Weekends in Bandung

    Hello, fellow lomographers! To be honest, ever since I started working last year, I haven't been able to write a single analogue lifestyle piece. But today I decided to write something about my days, especially about my weekend in Bandung. It's not much but I take it as the start of a new beginning in writing all over again here. So, here's my weekend in Bandung!

    From Russia with Love: Motorama Shoots with the La Sardina Splendour

    I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.

    An Afternoon in Tagaytay Highlands

    I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.

    Agfa Precisa CT 35mm: The Blues!

    I don't care if this film has been reviewed a zillion times, that it has already been discontinued, or that there might be a Japanese version of it. The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!
