Another set of passport photographs found on a Croydon street in 2004-ish. I have no idea how or even why this person decided to take a photo of their denim clad chest, but they did. Normally you get about three or four attempts to take a half decent photo (when I say 'half decent photo', what I mean is a photo of your face, your very own frozen phizog, captured forever resembling a recently warmed up cadaver), so if it looks rubbish you can try again. You also have to push a button to confirm you're happy with the photo. Pretty simple. I can only assume then that the person in this photo is either incapable of using a photo booth, or they actually did want a picture of their jacket front.
