That is why I do not use it often.
But when I do, my eyes go out and my lips and gums occupy my face like the moon does on a total eclipse.
Sometimes I smile for no reason at all. Some people say that is a good thing, but if you look it up sometimes it is a sign of going crazy.
When I went to the DFA regional office for my passport, I was very curious when I saw a sign that said frowning is not acceptable in your passport photo, and the recommended look is the ‘Mona Lisa smile’.
I really do not know what their definition of frowning is but it seemed all of the people I saw there having their photos taken were frowning and it was acceptable.
For a moment I got really confused. That, or there is just another Mona Lisa that I have yet to hear of.
Mine was not so bad as a mug shot but you would not see me flaunting it in public unless I want to be ridiculed for looking like an escaped mental patient. Hmmm… now having said that made me think which is worse of the two.
Maybe one day I will hold a contest for worst passport photo ever. Then for a change, people will be excited to show off their passport photos.
Is there ever a person who looked good on a passport photo? If so, let me know.
