Free online photo booth (yes, really!)

** warning: what follows is an unsolicited endorsement for a major time suck! **

I've been wanting to put my own face on my About page, but just couldn't find anything that seemed suitable. So the other day I was noticing how Pugly Pixel had cute pictures on her About page and when I looked a little closer, I saw they appeared to have been generated by some website. I put the address in my browser and then promptly spent, oh, let's say an hour, goofing off over at La Photo Cabine.

Friends of ours just moved to France recently and she was just saying how everything there requires a photo (bus passes and library cards included!), so there are literally photo booths everywhere. Now I see how this was maybe more 'normal' than 'vintage cute' in Amelie...good on them! (gosh, I'm noticing now that it was made in 2001; did I really see it in the theaters that long ago?!)

I love how this darling little site looks and sounds like an old French photo booth! It lets you choose the layout and if you want it in black or white. There's also options to download, print out, or print on an object. Yeah, super cute! Viel SpaƟ! Have fun!

ps-yes, my About page now has pictures, woot!

Uh-oh. The baby is crying and I'm still posing. This might be a problem.
