Nice. Love the colours that happen when the sun gets low and the shadows go blue.

Really? I watched, and they didn't. I didn't do it when I had jobs like that many, many years ago.

LOL! I've cleaned women's restrooms. I'm gonna have to reject that theory.

Nope. You can see the wall to the left, so there's plenty of room.

Other than there being a photo of a bathroom door, jimmy, is there a point to derailing a photo thread with a 'why do women...?' discussion?

I made a comment to give context as to why I was posting that pic in the first place. You're the one making it a "why do women" debate whereas my comment was about "women using this restroom" There would have been no discussion at all had you not come up with some rather lame and sexist (as if only women have kids in tow) reasoning to explain something you couldn't possibly know because you've never been to that bathroom.

Clearly this not the first derail in this thread much less in photography threads in general. You got a problem with derails, then don't start them and don't participate in them. More importantly, don't blame me.

At the risk of further derailing the thread, there has been a sea-change in door-opening behavior at my workplace in the last few years. It started with the avian flu scare a while back, which resulted in hand-cleaning stations near busy doorways. And in the annual "don't catch the flu, here have a flu shot" safety lectures, it was suggested that people start either pushing restroom doors open with their elbows or better yet using the paper towel we've dried our hands with to open the doors on our way out. And that's exactly what I do - elbow going in, paper towel going out. There are no metal plates to miss, but if there were one in the pictured location, I'd miss it every time.

BTW, hand sanitizer is great for cleaning white boards.

I worked with a germaphobic (sorta) guy. He wasn't too worried going in, but coming out out he was obsessive about what he would touch.

The rest of the smoker is fine, just the firebox rusted to shit. Now I gotta figure out how to rig a replacement firebox for less than the cost of replacing the whole thing.

My spine doctor's office is nearby, and I walk by there during my several daily walks to relieve back pain. Today (Sunday) I saw a dead bird outside their office door. Pain apparently does things to your mind because it occurred to me right then and there that it would be funny if the bird left a suicide note to be discovered by the receptionist when she opened on tomorrow morning.

It was still funny when I had to take another pain-relieving walk, so I wrote a suicide note for the bird who had been living on a "wing and a prayer" while feeling "pigeon holed" by his friends. I put it in an envelope and left it by the bird.

They should have an interesting morning at the office...

I have a new phone camera. It's kind of special.
Here are a few samples.

Animated clip. This mode lets you easily select areas to 'animate', or 'freeze'.

Dramatic - which makes these thingies.

All in all, a lot more than I expect from a phone-camera.
