I am currently in the process of renewing my passport, I have downloaded all the relevant forms and information from the British consulate in Paris, blimey I am sure at one time it cost £25.00 now I have to shell out 171 Euro's. Not only that but I really liked my last passport photo, yes it was ten years ago but I was smiling, MG always say's I look like Wallace! Hence the photo, but I liked it, hey we have to travel around the planet with it for ten years.
Rules have changed now, smiling is not acceptable you have to adopt a neutral expression, I thought I would give myself an advantage by having the photo taken just after a visit to my hairdressers and being exceptionally careful with my make up. Once settled in the booth, I soon realised a fringe is also not acceptable, so I had to brush my freshly cut fringe back, adopt neutral expression and think of England...result terrible, if I did not look like an undesirable person before I certainly look like one now!
