Portrait from a photobooth




Farnsworth was sherriff; he knew that. He just couldn't remember which county he belonged in.

Cynthia could never get guys to make a pass at her. She could never get away from that pesky halo.

Herb couldn't swim under water. Nobody cared. There wasn't any water near by anyway.

It was no surprise. Sophie was always a bit stand-offish.

Herman named his cat "German Shepherd"



Scotty never met William Shatner. Everybody asked though.

Rowena always made her shopping lists in code.

Garner taught himself to sleep standing up.
It was never useful though.

Rennie wasn't scared. He just needed his mommy's hand for balance.

Wiffie couldn't remember if she had changed her name this morning or not.




This is a row of portraits that were cut down to fit in lockets or tiny places in the family album. They were probably photobooth portraits originally but since they have been trimmed it's hard to tell for sure.

They might also have been photographer's proof prints for the customer's selection.

Most of them are barely one inch square.

They are included here just in case.

THE KIDS Lesson one.
It is always a mystery to us how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.

  1. These are priceless and your captions are hysterical. I really can't decided which one made me laugh the most. It was sort of like waves hitting the beach, one after another. Good ones!!

  2. Thanks. I am glad you enjoyed them.

    I don't know why but these photobooth portraits always suggest something when I look at them.
