  4. I thought about saying that this is a "crappy" shot, but that would be too cliche'!!! :biggrin: :wink:

    Made me laugh!!!

    The worst thing about these is that they are ALL OVER THE PLACE NEAR WHERE I LIVE:

    This "Blue Rest Station" is literally a stones throw from where I live in Sacramento. Just seems sooo incongruous being in the middle of a beautiful field scene. It's a working farm from which we get some of our produce. Glad they use a porta potty rather than...oh wait I just noticed the door is jammed shut with something.

    Worse than this, there is a marshland bird refuge a few miles down the highway and it is literally dotted with these...really ruins some pano shots. Possibly we need a thread for the worst located "Blue Rest Station."

    Anyway, I laughed at the OP's post... but hope we don't see a for sale add listing the flash in like new condition (just having fun).:tongue:
  9. LMBO! You're braver than I....I don't go within 10 feet of those things.

    The story is this...

    Korey (the man in the potty) and I went on a local forum photo walk with about 20 other people. While everyone was going for the more traditional (still amazing) photos, he and I decided that this port-a-potty would make a bolder statement. In true strobist style, we scouted the location, rigged up some speedlights, and even dug through the trash looking for props (the beer bottle was a find from a near by trash can).

    When we were setting up the shot, we noticed that the urinal part was exactly where we wanted to put a speedlight. Korey actually said.. "there's no water in it" to which I responded "...but there once was pee!"

    Vegas, baby!
    LMBO again and again!!! Great lighting! I would have been afraid the methane gas would ignite with the flashes. It is "Duchamp" for the photography world! Killer shot, great work!
