Found, Luna Park 08/09/1996
Another found photo from the 90’s. I find these pics extremely amusing. There is something of Frankenstein’s monster in the lobotomised head I have had to “stitch” back on and in the stunned-mullet, slow-brained look on the face of this sitter. One must say that he and his friend were not the brightest of individuals, having missed most of the flashes before sitting down to pose.
I never found the final photo that looks like it may have actually worked, but that was okay, for I had plenty of fun with the other remnants.

My travelling companion, Moana, was visiting from the UK. My sister Sue, was temporarily living back in Australia, after a few years in Ireland. What better way to celebrate a reunion than with icecreams and a photobooth session?

How many people can you fit in a photobooth? Four. But do not be surprised when the results are not what you were expecting.
This strip was found at Luna Park in St Kilda, Melbourne, on the 25th of November 2000.
Luna Park 21/01/1995
On Melbourne Cup Day 1994, I met my future husband, (unfortunately, now ex-husband), at a Cup Day barbeque hosted by a school friend. We both bet on the same horse that won the cup that year. From the first, we got on really well. We rented a flat in the Melbourne suburb of Balaclava, coincidentally, not far from my favourite photobooths at Luna Park.
I was continuing to develop my hand-made greeting card ranges and thinking about how to move to the next step – publishing my designs.
I have mentioned St Kilda’s old amusement venue, Luna Park, many times in this blog. I thought it would be nice to show you what the old place looks like after a recent facelift. There are no longer any photobooths there but it is still a place that captures my imagination.
