wonderfuly humorous shot. How did you manage to take this without getting a beating? #9657

how wonderfully funny. I'm wondering the same thing. How in the world did you get these men to agree to let you take the photograph? This is definately called guerilla photography! #15562

Some feat... #15564

Thanks for the comments guys! I have been hesitating on submitting this one for awhile now...didn't know if the girls would be to happy with the intimate look into boy bathroom happenings...Ok, you guessed it...these are my friends. I had dragged them along to the Houston Zoo to do some shooting and we were all in the bathroom when Kevin, the guy in the foreground, was talking about how when he came home from college over Christmas, his mom put up paintings and pictures in his old bathroom. In the ensuing conversation, it was decided that only pictures of people going to the bathroom would be appropriate in a bathroom. Thus, I grabbed my camera and snapped this shot. This is not a posed shot the expressions are more than real...haha. This shot now adornes every one of our bathrooms. Mission accomplished. Thanks again for taking the time to comment and allaying my fears...

ROTFL! I love the story too #15649

Damian P. Gadal 9/23/2002 8:06:39 PM

Sounds appropriate to me... I had an old roommate who would put down newspaper everytime a guest was supposed to come over. You can imagine the looks he'd get! #15650
