A common sight in the malls and bus stations of my youth was the photo booth. Back in the day, you could use its photos for your ID. Not anymore. Restrictions on what a passport photo should (and should not) look like are as long as your arm.
The picture above is of the photo booth at Oakridge Centre, where I go once a year for my blood work. But it could be any photo booth, anywhere. Something about the architecture of these booths, how similar they are -- and how similar all of us look while waiting for their photos to discharge.
