Mark in Wellington – Early December 1999

photoboothEarly12:1999

Early December 1999, Wellington, New Zealand

The only photobooth I was able to find on this trip to visit my travelling buddy Moana in Wellington, was a sticker booth in a game arcade.

I stopped in New Zealand on my way to visit friends in London before going to Dublin to spend Christmas with my sister and her Irish relatives. She and her husband Tim had decided not to make their home in Australia and had returned to live in Ireland where they had first met. They live there to this day.

Moana was working most of my visit and I only managed to get her husband Mark, into the booth. While not my preferred type of photobooth, in the event of nothing better, it is a least a cute souvenir of a trip. To see some previous posts and booth photos of Moana and I together, click here, here and here.

This strip of photos is from my series Photobooth 41 Year Project. You can see all the posts that document the series by clicking here.

    • I hope I was laughing. It looks kinda weird and cheesy to me but thanks for the compliment, Moni!

    • Thanks John. I wasn’t so keen on it when it first popped out of the slot but time improves some things.

    • Possible, or “Eeek, Crazy woman!” might have been the shout-out from another patron!
