Show Us Your Long Drop: Post-earthquake New Zealanders' improvised toilets

Creativity is often sparked by necessity in times of disaster. Such was the case in Christchurch, New Zealand, after the Feb. 22 earthquake left many without plumbing. Pete Brook of Prison Photography points out Show Us Your Long Drop, a site that catalogs one such kind of disaster-inspired creativity: impromptu outdoor bathrooms. From the site:
The earthquake disaster has been a testing time for us Cantabrians and we feel for people who have lost loved ones or property. Our thoughts are with you. During these tough times it is important to be with friends and family and still be able to have a good laugh. Hence the reason for this website. A bit of toilet humour is bound to put a smile on your face even if your having a crappy day!
