for goodness sake
Did you just make taking a piss classy?
How did you get away with that one?
i try cowgirl, i try...
540, i snapped this ages ago in the toilets at the Tate, just on impulse. never put it up here because i thought it wouldn't be well received, but, well, it is Friday, and i just felt like it.
Erm...okay. Nicely done, I don't think I'd have the nerve to take a shot like this.
case in point - Caine-o!
I like the shot, Nige. I just don't think I could get away with doing the same - people can get mean about that sort of thing here. Well, that and I wouldn't want to be caught skulking in the men's room. That might give the gents idears. :D
Edited to add: Although I was in the gents at the Muddy Creek Saloon. That's another story though.
Mens business, realy is mens business
hehe. you, in a mens toilet? with your reputation? hahaha. i see what you mean, Caine. tough to do that without looking a touch conspicuous.
i think jig along is quite right.
Didn't teh bloke wonder what you were doing? Not like you can be inconspicuous in a big green shirt and flip flops ;)
he was facing the other way, and i'm a sharp shooter! i was there and gone in a jiffy. the only thing that might have clocked me was the shutter noise, which echoed rather loudly!
That's what I was worried about, well one of the things anyway!!
i was worried about him turning around and peeing on me.
Very nice. Got to have kahonas to get a shot like that ....
i did get quite a rush when taking it. i wouldn't make a habit of hanging out in the gents, but i bet it would make a great series if done properly. it's such an improper place to take photographs that i'm sure done properly it could really be great.
You got a rush taking it? Hmm ;)
Caine, the Tate is a pretty salubrious art gallery -so Nige was probably more at risk of some well phrased outrage and the threat of legal proceedings than anything else.
It must be a funny ritual. I bet men don't talk while they wee right? Women friends chat across cubicle walls all the time, regardless of who else might be concealed in the other ones listening to them.
i did get a buzz. i bear no shame for it!
you're quite right OJ, men don't talk at all, and generally they tend to stare at the ceiling whilst relieving themselves. this of course, after making the rather difficult decision of judging the distance they should stand away from the urinal; far enough to avoid splashing their shoes, but not so far that their neighbouring gents get to see their, um, manhood. in some ways, women have it good with cubicles...
OMG, I must say I do really like the pic (composition, texture, lighting etc) .... the content made me take a step back ...... but , hey the man is anonymous, and yes, I think the sense of being discovered (as the photographer) does add an extra frission to the pic ..... Nige on the edge :)
Exactly right OJ ... I can't even use the urinals. I get performance anxiety and ... um ... well, you know.
