    An amazing selection of photos. Not something that is photographed often I would think.

  • przemoc

    the 6th one is not a photo. just look at towel on the right! ;)

  • przemoc

    i meant 7th.

  • http://www.arizonatreks.org Michael

    I found it shocking that you could have a collection of photographs in the bathroom and not include the one taken by Edward Weston.

  • http://www.photographyblogger.net Nate Kay

    @przemoc Good catch! The 7th one is indeed a rendering.

  • http://foodientravelbug.blogspot.com MeiTeng

    Wow..I have never thought of bathroom photography. Great idea! Thanks for sharing.

  • Scott Higdon

    You could add one more – http://www.jlondonphoto.com/black%20and%20white/bw.html#

    you will need to mouse over the throne pic on the left.

  • http://adamtree.wordpress.com/ James A Woods

    What an interesting collection of photos! I love the Ode to Jack Kerouac. The rendered image (the 7th) has the same green as my son’s new LEGO set. These images make it look easy to take such great pictures.

    As far as I’m concerned, I think the greatest bathroom photo ever is the famous self portrait that Lee Miller took of herself in Hitler’s bath tub.

  • http://fuelyourphotography.com Dan Denney

    Great collection of shots for a theme that I haven’t come across before. I was quite curious of how impressive bathrooms could be, but these shots capture some gorgeous rooms as well as some wonderful moments.

    It’s hard to hold back an “awww” when you see “Bathroom reading” by thejbird.

  • http://cameraguyzack.blogspot.com/ Zack Jones

    That’s a great collection of shots. I like oh Shi*t! — haven’t we all experienced that.

  • http://www.biktor.info Biktor

    I did a photo sesion of one of the bathrooms of my house, it is an old one (since I was a child it has been used and, in spite there is a new one, my family prefer continue using it)

    I hope you like them:

    Such an interesting collection of photographs. Not something you see everyday since most people tend to think of bathrooms as a “private” room in their house. Thanks for sharing this.

    The contribution by axeldeviaje isn’t a photo . . . it’s CG. I wish it were a real photo, tho.

  • raewyn

    Great photographs – thinking – and with humour

    The concept of someone typing “old school” while sitting on the toilet made me smile.
    Long live the typo-toilet

    I just took this one 2 weeks ago…. it’s in the Strobist contest currently.

    I must say–there are so much time to spend rather than bathrooms-toilet-
    but each to their own-at the same time my mental focus on Real estate
    pictures/ architecture/ portraits-with the persons profile/ love this type!
    There is a old persa bro. WHATEVER YOU SEE-YOU CAN CAPTURE IT
    gOOD LUCK AND ENJOY…

    Very interesting collection.

    Who but Weston would find the feminine in a toilet?

  • http://www.flickr.com/visual_guy visual guy

    A great selection of bathroom photos. Very inspirational. Oddly, I took my last few shots exactly there…in my bathroom, less than an hour ago. Selfies, that is. Will think about posting them up later.

    Feel like a Queen? I am pretty sure HRH does not have her washing machine in her bathroom :-)

    I’ve been taking bathroom shots for years. I get really strange looks sometimes when someone enters a public restroom that I’m photographing…

    As for the kid on the toilet, a note to parents: Don’t. Just don’t. My parents have more than one photograph of me like that, and I don’t like them. I’ll leave it at that.
