New photos

And not a chance of any of you ever seeing them.

They are 100% improved over the ones taken by the Dill at AustraliaPost but I had to pay an extra $4. I removed my big glasses, no heavy frames and used my reading glasses which were the same ones I wore ten years ago.

Never look at passport photos until you're on your own. Sobbing upsets other shoppers.

Hmmm. Not too shabby, same crooked smile. Last time I was allowed a small smile which helped but these days, no smiling just a fixed 'roo in the headlights' stare. My smile is really crooked on one side but then I have one ear up and one ear down which is why my glasses are always crooked, sort of evens things up.

I am comparing a 10 year old passport photo to the recent one, something is different.

OMG! I don't have a double chin anymore. My neck is actually on the scraggy side. All those falls must have triggered a fat slide southwards. If this photo gets knocked back then I'm going for one of those 'StarShots'.

I bet Joan Collins has a 'StarShot' for her passport.

In my first ever passport photo I look like Julius Ceasar.

Stop putting up so many posts, people miss my comments in the previous one.

You have all my sympathies. I look like my mama in photos. Which is why with the exception of passports I don't play the photo game. And go to some lenghts to avoid it. (MS means I don't drive so I can escape that one).

In my passport photo I'm six months old. I'd definitely need a new one if I were to go travelling now, because I just look so very different, bigger for a start.

Southward fat slide hey? That could explain my slimmer ribs and wobblier belly....

Julius Ceasar, really, Rochester but would that be dead or alive?

EC, I look like my grandmother so avoid any camera I can.

River, I'm never without the passport now. So many people want ID with a photo not cards with a signature. This is why you'll never see me on Facebook

You mean he's dead?

Hey I look like a startled potato in mine.

And if it makes you feel any better, I was happily running a few errands in yesterday's lovely sunshine; feelin' good and was handed a brochure that read 'Half-price Treatments for Menopausal Skin.' THAT deflated me somewhat!
