passport photos

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
does anybody have a decent photo in their passport? I looked at mine again today and again I cringed :yuck:

Would you (hypothetically speaking, you don't actually have to do it) be happy to let everyone at, say, The Site, see your passport photo?

I know I wouldn't! :eek:

    I don't have a passport, but I've had my fair share of those passport photo-things taken. There's no way in hell anyone is getting a look at those. The one on my license is horrendous.

    Yes, my latest passport photo is half decent for a change. What you've got to realise is that you are actually allowed to smile. There's nothing that says you must look like a manic depressive serial killer. All it specifies are things like you mustn't be wearing a hat.

    that is precisely the problem with my passport photos. when i smile on them, i somehow manage to make myself look more like a deranged killer than if i didn't smile!

    it's funny, cos with ordinary photos, i'm usually ok!

    My passport photo is lovely, the passport control had to look twice and I felt like saying 'ok, we're all allowed bad hair days', I hate it because I dont look that good in real life!!
    Id show it but I still havent found my scanner power cable.

    Yes. I would (not even hypothetically speaking) be happy to show everyone on thesite my passport photo. It's really not bad, for a change! The same one that's on my driving licence. The thing that bugs me is this: they're bad enough as they are... why make them worse by making them GREEN for god's sake?!

    I look evil in my passport photo.

    I had hair then, too. :D

    My eyes looked black, rather than brown, which added extra essence of demon.

    I've not had a passport since I got kicked off my mum's! I've never needed one! However I do need a passport now!

    And the only picture of me online is a passport photo! :p

    ack.

    my passport pic is from when i was 16. i look like i'm an extra from 'the craft', and i'm wearing some hideous 1997 jumper. it's all very scary.

    the photo on my driving license isn't that bad. and i was wise enough to wear plain clothes for the picture....

    :)

    No I wouldn't. It's from about 4 years ago and I look awful on it. Had my hair in a short just below the ear length bob, flat to my head and it so didn't suit me. It's the same pic as on my driving licence as well. I just look nothing like it any more, it's a wonder they actually believe it is me.
