March 31. Day 90. Look at the Birdie
I have two possible explanations to the "no smile, you're on camera" rule.
1) Someone is officialdom gets a very good laugh at looking at the truly dreadful images on passports and drivers' licences or
2) When pulled over by police or when handing over the passport after hours on a long haul jet, no-one is smiling. Everyone probably looks straight ahead, lips closed with a neutral expression trying to look at least human.
So that was me today at the counter of Queensland Transport renewing my driver's licence trying to put on a brave face. Now look at the birdie ....
* This image was taken outside my front door as I headed out to do the renewal business. I will not know how bad the actual image is until it turns up in the mail in a couple of weeks.
