Worst passport photo ever

Yesterday as part of preparation for a summer trip to Guatemala I made three copies of the front page of my passport. While making the copies I realized that as bad as I remember my passport photo to be, the actual photo is worse. I had it taken the week I was getting married, nearly five years ago, at a small studio near the courthouse in Annapolis where I got my marriage license that same day. I was harried and distracted so when the “photographer” gave me my photo and said, “Nobody likes their passport photo”, I simply glanced at it, shrugged and moved on. Little did I know that just a couple of years later the same photograph, now immortalized by an attachment to a US passport, would be passed around for the enjoyment of a bus full of Contiki travelers and unanimously declared the worst passport photo ever.

were you high on the mary jane when you had that taken? wow.
of course, i’m smiling in mine, and it has been pointed out to me that smiling is considered very bad for a passport photo. (legally). oops. cvs didn’t warn me.

Nope, just high on the prospect of a life of wedded bliss.

oh, that made me laugh. By the way, that tough-guy aura will do you well in zone 18. Not sure about the squinty-eye…that may be a come-on in Guatemala or something.
