The sad decline of the old style photobooth where you'd get 4 random images has given rise to a new breed of digibooth - it talks to you in a patronising voice and prints exactly the same photo 4 times. What rubbish. If you're not happy with this way of getting your passport photo taken, may I suggest visiting Bon-Bon newsagent in Purley. Here you can be taken out back and made to stand at the bottom of the stairs. Mr Bon-Bon will then take your photo and you can have a bit of a chat too - he's a very nice man. Lovely bit of human interaction. This baby passport photo was found outside Bon-Bon a couple of years ago.
