No doubt I will cause a scandal with this photo! Haha! My trainer and I did the 200 miles bike ride this weekend. There were moments of exhaustion and near giddiness. At one point she suggestion we take a photo in the men's room, and post it up for our friends just to make them laugh. So we barged in (no men were around) and took the shot.
I needed a good laugh at the time...and so did she.

Excellent concept! A little out of focus but a realy cool shot.

Hello Linda,
Let's just title this:

"Gender Uncertainty"

Shall We...

Good Humor...

Linda, This is nothing to me.... I work in an elementary school with probably 100 women and 5 or 6 men. The little men on the sign are often ignored!! HAHAHA

Funny shot! Are you sure you didn't get this from C.S.I. Houston?? I like the tilt....She must be playing farmtown! :-) Lisa

haaaaa! could of been awkward had a guy walked in! ah yes to be giddy, is that the same as runners high?
or in your guys case riders high!
good one,

Good pic,I like the movement you caught of her hands sending an image. Of the mens room I presume:-)I just hope none of the guys had to wait to long.I like the tilt to the image,adds a bit of drama.
I do hope you feel good when you wake up from a nights sleep,but just in case you ache,why don't you print this up 8 x 10 & put it on your night stand,so you can get a good laugh when you wake up,that should take any pain away.
Well done on the 200 miles Linda.

Hi Linda,
First, congratulations for your performance!
This is a great achievement for you!
About your photo, I like this kind of petty crime ! Sometimes, I confess, I do the same thing , the line-up is always shorter at the men's room! :)
I like the composition with the Red's close-up in foreground. The tilt gives some dynamism! Take a rest! Annie

Not the sharpest you've ever shot Linda, but a great idea! Good light and funky composition...

It's quite normal for me to go into the men's room in most of asia to find a woman cleaning; even as I stand there streaming - so to speak!!


Agreed with David, par for the course in Asia, not scandalous :-)

Composition works well, your model looks perfrectly preoccupied and for a camera phone this is a far better quality than a lot of the stull we see here. Nice concept, cool image :-)

Ha ha - what a biker chick. Not Red - in the men's loos!!! And you too!!
Well done on your biking Linda - you both did well - I'm impressed, and yes. I do like your fun photo

Hahaha...like the idea Linda, going to try this in the ladies room ;-) Good composition with the men's urinal fully in view. Although I agree with David, Red's face is a bit out of focus. Anyway a great shot with journalistic value!

Hi Linda,

Good concept, a little blurry, but it still works. The "do" rag adds to the tough look, excellent composition. Reminds me of the times long ago when I went to rock concerts. Nothing unusual about the ladies using the men's facilities when nature called.

Hi Linda
Ha! Ha! She looks so natural, completely at ease and down to business....I don't think she posing ..lol! Excellent shot Linda, love the tilt and all this done with a Sony Ericsson !!!! WOW.

200 miles??? The most I ever did was 40 miles in a day and this was about 200 years ago.......

sorry ...better late than never
The scene is delicious, very underground and with lot humour. The perspective with Red in front is fanstatic.Good sharpness and colors.
Funny and interesting and good.
