Smile, dammit

My sister micromanages my facial expression inside a photo booth at Woolworth's in Otummwa, Iowa, in the mid-sixties.

Happy (belated) birthday, Jennifer.

Those photo booths are a art form in themselves, i swear it's true. I cannot look at this and not smile.

Yes, sweet. Yes, sad.

She was doing her job, SA. And I was doing my little brother job - making her life a complete hell. I'm not touching you! I'm not touching you!

They really are, meno. It was so exciting - seeing the light go on and quickly posing for the next shot. Waiting ouside for the litle photo strip to come out of the machine. Do they even have photo booths anymore?
