The Restroom Project

This is the mens at the Whirling Dervish bar on Decatur in the French Quarter. Note the ice in the trough.

now there is a water pipe running to the through and this used to be the common method of "flushing" the urinal when I started visiting ten or so years ago. This is the only trough I saw on this trip though.



uploaded my cameraphone pics, but most aren't very good. I used disposables for this trip since I don't have a real camera. I will see what they look like tomorrow and maybe post some.

the cameraphone pics, but don't expect much
Yes, yes. I'm the same weight I was 4 months ago, on the dot. 157 lbs in light clothes. But I lost all my fat and converted it to a little bit more muscle (mostly in the legs, as you can guess). As far as I can find, I only have two tiny little pockets of fat left on me, one over each hip. The Martian climate and cuisine conspire to suppress the appetite, and I got a little more exercise than usual in that time.

Thanks for the food offer, Meru! I've been stuffing myself like mad the last two days, and plan to continue doing so for the next week or so. Good protein, available at last!

(edit) On careful examination, not so badly.

It actually is a stance, by the way; I adapted it, loosely, from the standard protocols for ISU standing rifle. Spine straight, head up, elbows braced hard on the chest, and part of the right hand braced against the head. It all serves to keep the camera from wiggling.

Your left-hand placement is spot-on, though. You obviously got the aesthetic; I expect you simply didn't know about the functionality.

What is ISU, couldn't find it as pertains to rifles on google except for a shooting coat. but that's hilarious in its own right.

Thank you, but I have another attempt:



and a variation, in which the camera is still against my face, but I'm looking at the lens rather than through the viewfinder or the LCD:

International Shooting Union
I thought shooting was in there. Thanks. I kept typing in rifle and only came up with duck-killing jacket.

Damn. I just knew I couldn't fool the expert! Razz

Actually, that was me being caught in the restroom. Just as I took that picture, someone walked in and bumped the door against my arm. The greyish blur next to my head is the door being opened.

But it's true that I messed up a lot of rr shots, just because I couldn't keep my hands steady enough (though I usually blame my shitty camera).

Really, I should study MoM's standard protocols for ISU standing rifle. But where do I find a rifle?

The hardest part is bracing my right hand against my face. My glasses force me to keep the camera away from my face, so my right hand has a tendency not to touch my face at all.


That's no excuse, sailor. Click on the radioactive face (©Doggo) that I use as my autosig. In the picture it brings you to this week, I'm wearing sunglasses.

I just....worry. You know? *hugs*

Yeah, so, if you want some DAMN GOOD COOKING (just ask Wanderer), let me know. This offer is good forever.

Well, one does look rather stupid if using it with a camera that has no optical viewfinder.


Oh, there's an optical viewfinder. But it's similar to most optical viewfinders on digital non-SLR cameras, in that the zoom doesn't reflect the camera's actual zoom, and it doesn't look through the lens, making it less useful than the LCD panel for showing you the actual shot you're going to get.
