Me? At four? Pix rearranged to be upright.

(The Featured Image is the only photo booth photo(s) I have)

It was in a shopping mall in NJ.

I only have one photo booth memory. It’s fairly recent, from long after the heyday of the classic photo booth.

It was in a shopping mall in NJ. Gina and I saw it and decided it would be fun to get a strip of candid shots. We went into the booth and drew the curtains. I immediately turned and gave Gina a long, passionate kiss.

Then we remembered that this digital photo booth had, hanging on the outside, a big monitor that displayed, in real time, whomever and whatever was going on inside the booth.

Picture untaken, we beat a hasty retreat.

    Times have changed, right Dave? At least you and Gina had that moment, even if no photo to savor after.

    But your Featured photo is beyond adorable. So glad you found and shared that one. Such a cutie!

  2. Wonderful Dave, what fun for the onlookers!
    And what a cutie you were!

  3. Suzy says:

    Very cute photos of you at about age four. Too bad you and Gina didn’t go ahead and take pictures while you were in the photo booth.

  4. Khati Hendry says:

    I feel really out of it. Photo booths not only exist, but display your picture to the world as you mug (or hug, or…)?? I think it is sweet that you kissed anyway. Also, adorable kid pic!

  5. Laurie Levy says:

    You guys should have taken the picture anyhow! I love your featured image. What a cutie.

  6. John Shutkin says:

    Great story, and who knew? I wonder if that is done as a deterrent to x-rated photo sessions. Or maybe just to punk those who might engage in them.
