Toilet for two (twice as fun)

Posted by
Albert (Sweden, living in Mechelen, Belgium) on 19 January 2010 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

This restroom I found in a sushi restaurant in St Petersburg. Unfortunately no one in my company wanted to join me. Instead I brought the tripod. The short photo session was a bit stressful since people kept jerking the door from the other side. 6 photos used for the HDR processing.

This will probably be my last upload for a week or maybe two since I'm leaving home for work again.

Detta är en sjukt bra bild måste jag säga. Så man hittar mycket roliga detaljer när man glor en stund.
Hade du fixat att bajsa i ena dasset samtidigt som du pissa i det andra? Hmm... Det ska vi pröva.

nu har jag tänkt lite på utmaningen. bästa lösningen är nog att stå mitt imellan dassen med förhållandevis lös avföring och skjuta åt båda hållen.

Two toilets??? Anyhow, you found a good use for them. Nice composition! Thanks for posting that link. HDR is definitely a technique I must try. The results are amazing.

OMG! What an interesting capture. Oh, to be spotted carrying a tripod into the bathroom......egads. You didn't tidy up this bathroom before taking this photo, did you? So odd to see a clean bathroom (and a wood floor) in a restaurant.

Don't laugh, you get a little older sometimes you need help getting up!!! This could be a good thing!!! Ever get accused of making a bad odor? In this case who's going to know? This has some potential. Great HDR.

This blows me away, on many levels Albert. Firstly the twin toilets, is that so you can carry on a conversation? Secondly hiding away from your company with the tripod for six shots! Thirdly the surprising level of detail and texture to be found in the woods particularly, and finally just for the sheer bravado of thinking about tone mapping a toilet!
