Remember the days of photo albums filled with unflattering eating , laughing and discolored-unawares-pictures with curved corners from the 70s? Weren't they great?
I've heard the biggest drawback to digital photography is the omission of the whacky, the silly-faced, the generally unflattering out-takes.
What a loss!
I love these out-take passport photos of my kids! At 2 & 4, they couldn't quite get the concept of "closed mouth/open eyes". My little boy is a mouth-breather and would not, even after a dozen shots, close those lips! And my girl is desperate to please and takes direction a little too well, see eyes. Makes me smile everyday; so very them!
