Another Happy Snappy Snap!

See previous post. Today it was Husband's turn to cram himself in the photo booth. The Passport Office rang today rejecting his passport photos because he was wearing glasses. (We had previously had a discussion about his glasses - so I could say "I told you so"!).

The trouble is Husband really cannot see very much without his glasses so I was called upon to push the green button and quickly remove my hand from sight! All this was achieved quite satisfactorily. Upon seeing the resulting photo I let out a very loud laugh which definitely unsettled the man behind us waiting his turn! I fear the Passport Office may reject this new photograph to be nothing like the photo (with glasses) they have already on file! Oh well - we will wait and see.

I am quite appalled that your husband couldn't have a passport photo taken with his glasses on.
I have never come across this before. My husband & I have recently had our photos accepted with glasses on without any to do.

I'm due a new passport and it reminded me of the time 20 years ago when i got my first one.. a friend told me to wear a very bright lipstick as it shows your features better. My photo was awful, all that was visible were my lips. they looked like the ones that fall out of a christmas cracker!
I hope the passports get sorted for you both really soon xx

we have to take off our glasses over here as well. So it must be a worldwide thing.

Puzzled too, surely if himself is going through Passport Control he'll be wearing his glasses.... very odd, enjoyed reading your account of the adventure though! Never taken my glasses off though did for green card - oh my, it was after a LONG day at work, I was wearing ratty grey sweatshirt, no make up, it's enough to make you become a citizen, lol!
