The world is full of toilets/restrooms/outh​ouses - you name it. Now it is time to collect them into one, long thread.

Some examples of these here:

http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=199420
http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=182989
http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=171310

This thread was triggered here: http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=217265

So let's start this. Because I'm not sure what kind of feedback this thread will get, my first post will be a negation, takin in Venice in July.

Now it's your turn.

Yes, I do. Maybe I was trying to be too 'clever'. :confused: (See 'negation' >here< (external link).)

I can post a 'positive' pic as well. This one from Beijing nightclub, the floor is glass, walls are mirrows and some lamps are below the floor ...

This is a sh*tty use of Pekka's bandwidth!

How about double jeopardy; toilet & bidet from a gag shot I took on a trip to London a few years ago.

Not artistic, but damn effective.

One of my favorite outhouses was on the summit of Tahquitz Peak (8,846') in the San Jacinto Mountains.

It collapsed sometime in the year after I took that picture. I went back at almost the same exact time a year later and found this:
