I love my passport – it enables me to travel all over the world and explore different countries.
However, there is one aspect of my passport that I do not like at all.
In my passport, I would ideally like a photo that portrays me as a happy, sun-kissed, free-spirited world traveller. Unfortunately, my current photo makes me look like a combination of a pale washed-out convict and a potato.
Now, I’m sure that there is a subtle art to taking a good passport photo – I just don’t have a clue what it is. As far as I’m concerned, it’s absolutely impossible.
In fact, I’m pretty certain that the secret to taking a good passport photo is just to have a good face in the first place, the kind of face that will still manage to look nice when it is stripped of all emotion and framed in awkwardly bright light before being stamped on an official document.
Unfortunately, I do not have one of these faces, which really doesn’t do anything for my passport photo’s overall aesthetic.
