OK, so let me first just say that I know there are some things technically wrong with this picture. However I had planned this shot and the only place I knew that would work was in a PUBLIC bathroom with stalls. So I brought my equipment into a bathroom near my work and set it up VERY quickly hoping that nobody would walk in. Luckily nobody did, becase I'm not really sure how I would have explained this one!

It's also my birthday this week so I figured I would give myself a little bit of a tribute!

I hope you all get a good laugh at my expense! :)

Lol! Hadn´t seen this before, think it´s bloddy brilliand and an instant favorite. Only to nitpick about the photographic side, I wish you had included the feet in the picture and had it slightly wider but nothing really that matters. Anyway, made me laugh out loud and would be perfect as a gift card :)

Congrats on the top 10 finish. A humourous shot indeed. I know I wouldn't have the nerve to try this.

LOL! Happy Birthday, and a very funny and well executed shot. You're certainly braver than I would be - walking into (or out of) a bathroom with all this + a camera & tripod must look just slightly fishy
