A colorful abstract for you on this sunny Sunday. I liked the illusion of the floor line of the back wall continuing through reflection on the red wall and line of stall doors.
And, hey, I've got to ask you: is YOUR grout this clean? Look at how white it is even in the corners and around the stall supports. Ever seen a public restroom this clean? No, this isn't new construction or barley used space. This restroom has been actively in service for years in the high traffic Experience Music Project. The design, vivid colors and abstract qualities of the scene appealed to me while I was waiting in a long line for one of those doors to open (sigh). I went back later with my camera and it was then I met a person on the cleaning crew changing the trash bins. I asked her how the grout was kept so clean. She said it was due to the daily routine of the maintenance staff who literally hand wipe every inch of the floor, walls, counters and stalls every single day. Wow! As someone with only a couple human's and a couple feline's foot traffic on my tile kitchen floor, I was really impressed. You might not want to eat off the floor, but I assure you, you could!
