No surprise there.

In one of Scott Kelby's books (he writes a lot of good photography books) he scornfully describes DMV camera setups as being "deliberately designed to produce the worst possible possible portrait".

I used to get to go to Tucson on business once or twice a year, been to Tombstone a few times as well as all the other cool places in the vicinity. How can you beat an expenses paid trip courtesy of your employer to places like that? Most of the time, I chose to drive either my car or a rental, 1150-1250 miles, (instead of flying) from Texas or Louisiana...great scenery! Sure, I had to spend a little time at work, at the conferences or in class, but generally they were half-days, more or less. I took the wife along on one trip, and she loved it. We'll be going back out once work's done next year. Lots to see & do in AZ! Oh yeah, I've been all over the Phoenix area, and north through Sedona & the Grand Canyon. In the 90's, I was doing Phoenix, the Tucson thing didn't start until 2001. Thanks for reminding me about Tucson/Phx!

Nice! I might, if/when I get around to it. Thanks though, for purtying up the place!

Um, those are lovely DMV pictures. I, like W2R, look like an axe murderer, but I have a great sunburn with raccoon eyes to boot!
No way!

Woo Hoo....I found it! For some reason or other, my mom saved my first driver's license and gave it to me a few years ago.

Just 16 years old.... ...thirty eight years ago.

I don't know why you guys are talking down about axe murderers. What with inflation the way it is, who can afford chainsaws and expensive rifles any more? This inflation is killing people!

No, I do not look like a mass murderer, if it means someone like this.



Actually, most mass murderers look quite normal.

It's just that I realize that I do not really look like Steve McQueen.

Until recently England didn't have photo ID driving licences so I include my student ID when I was 18, along with my current driver's licence photo.

Apart from the glasses, I haven't changed much in 38 years
