The Spot to Shoot: Restrooms All Over the World

2010-03-25 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.
