    Default Do you read in the toilet?

    This may sound a bit strange.

    I have been collecting magazine cut-outs, catalogue pages or print-outs from the net. They are photos which interest me and which I think there is something I could learn from them e.g. the composition, lighting techniques or concepts etc.

    I put them together in a 100-page clear sheets in a folder. Everytime I go to the toilet I drag it along to have a flip.

    A most productive learning lesson in 10-15 minutes. I guess as something is coming out of your body, there is room to add in some visual stimulus.

    Now you can start counting the money.

    I think I've seen a photo someone shot of a toilet bowl full of slides! A photographer's creative diarrhoea?

    Would be tempting just to sit there after you're done, and continue looking at pictures.

    oh yea.. toilet literature - the best form of education.
    parents should encourage the kids to read whilst shitting.
    toilets can also double up as a library.
    sigh.

    Ha ha maybe 10-15 mins a bit of an exageration.

    A long time ago a doctor told me not to go and sit on the toilet bowl unless I had the urge. Since then I always heed his advise.

    If we look at a photo that impresses us the first time. We say wow! and promptly forget about it. If we look at it again again, we'll find out something more about it.

    I think it'a an idea to build a book shelve for photographic books beside the toilet bowl low enough to reach while sitting down there.
