Challenge starting Monday, June 6.

Post Sat Jun 04, 2005 7:14 pm


I'm copying this from the thread about boring photos. This challenge came about because jude claims she can make any boring item interesting in a photo and Dan pointed out a toilet shot taken by Edward Weston (http://www.photo-seminars.com/Fame/EdWeston.htm). So, here's the challenge. Simon Kirk and Dan Chusid have already accepted the challenge. Answer here if you will give it a shot.

HERE IS THE NEW CHALLENGE FOR THE WEEK STARTING MONDAY, JUNE 6TH. TAKE A PICTURE OF A TOILET EACH DAY OF THE WEEK!!!!!!!!

I suspect it may be too difficult to do for an entire week. But let's see how many days you can keep it up and how UNBORING you can make the old porcelain god.

WHO'S IN???

BUT I didn't say I could make any boring pic interesting.. I said anyone could if they used their fantasy eyes..

Can we Photoshop our shots?

Anything goes in this challenge. The way I see it, making seven interesting toilet pictures will be difficult enough without further restrictions. I have been thinking about this all day. I have at least three figured out so far.

Is Ajax or Comet allowed?
I see they're in my photoshop bag of tricks.

Yeah, this is pretty much a crapshoot. Sorry, I couldn't resist the bad pun.

....that this is not starting a week later. I'm headed off for a camping trip.
I could do a week of pit toilets.
Add a little smell-a-vision and that would be quite the treat.

Make sure you take your camera when you go pee behind the tree in the middle of the night. Doesn't have to be a literal toilet I guess.

Oh dear... I'm not sure I even WANT to do this one, but it's just strange enough to get me interested. I'm in.

Wait, I just had a thought.. does this have to be a PAD? or can we just post our potty pics elsewhere? I mean, of COURSE it will be a PAD at leat once or twice.. but I'm not sure i want to use my PAD thing for just toilet pics. Can we just post them anywhere and put a pic on here. or link it?

And who makes up these rules anyhow? :lol:

Too bad we can't set up a special "Le Toilet Gallery!" here on PBase.
Now that would be special!

This should certainly be in PAD since I want to marvel at those luxurious and decrepit bowls,
those seats of government and wisdom, those glamourous flushing mechanisms
and elegant depositories.

Make it Art Baby!
Too good for the PBase world audience to miss!

On your mark, get set,....Flush!

PS: I don't think you have to actually have anyone atop your subject matter
but this could get interesting.....

Not sure about 7 days worth, or taking my camera in with me at work.... but, yeah, I'm in! (the challenge, not the toiket!)


Good timing actually - I'm all out of ideas!
