Ho hum. Another venue, another toilet. Wink
Here I am at Greenwich Park at the Equestrian Event on Friday. So excellent - everything.
There was a fair draught blowing through the loos hence the movement of the flag.

Oh, and Sophie Wells won her dressage round on the lovely Pinnochio. Hurray! SmileSmileSmile I've put up a couple bad shots of the actual event in V2 and V3.

I took the G11 because I was worried about what was allowed in or not but the reach was not good enough and the day was very contrasty. Next time I'll take the DSLR and Tamron18-270mm. I'll need it in the Olympic Stadium next Saturday!!!!!! SmileSmileSmile

Great captures, Chris, and particularly interesting for me, I followed the equestrian events very closely, as a member of the GB team (Kristina Cooke) comes from my village in Sussex Smile Carol

Two shots from loos on the same line in the Gallery, is this a record?
As I've put on mine, some of us do, some of us don't...
Great fun. I like the coordinated red bag.
V1 the main interest for me, I'll admit...

I've a selection of various loos scattered throughout my p/f. As I believe does Moira. Well, you've got to do something while you're sitting there. Grin

Self-expression is most at home in the smallest room.
When I was at Durham University ('68 to '73) a popular local band was called 'Vitreous China'.
I wonder what happened to them? I expect they went down the pan in the end: probably flushed with success . . .
Regards
Bill

P.S.: V1 is my winner Smile

I won't ask where the draught you experienced was coming from, ChrisWink That would be too much information!
You shouldn't leave your bag on the floor like that...easily snatched from outside in those loos with walls that don't go all the way down.
