Self Portrait Challenge - enclosed in the photobooth.

vintage b&w photobooth, Amy's Ice Cream, Austin, Texas - July 2006

For the last of the 'Enclosed in...' Self Portrait Challenge this month here is me, in a vintage black & white photobooth, surrounded by the swirl of developer solution. I love that this booth was faulty and all of these ghostly images were captured around me. The way the dark swath along my profile curves it is as if it were planned.

Some of you may stop by just on Tuesdays and not know that the beautiful Andrea of hulaseventy started something called 'Photobooth Friday' quite a long while ago. I participate along with so many other fabulous women bloggers that I have come to know. Similar in concept to SPC, we are PBF. It was actually a little difficult to use this photo on a Tuesday - sacrilegious even. Each one of these little squares has become precious and I eek them out hoping to never exhaust my supply.

You probably have some old photobooth shots in the bottom of a forgotten shoe box in the attic. Or maybe under your parents stairs...

Won't you come along and join us?


edited to add: If you are looking for a booth near you there is a handy locator page at photobooth.net.

Since Teri M. correctly used one of my favorite words, I will alter it slightly and say "Fantabulous". :D

LeS, you're so gorgeous! this photo so beautifully captures your pretty profile. I LOVE it. Which Amy's is this? You're unintentionally pressuring me to go get some PB pictures, myself :)

That's true. I thought of using one of my photobooth pics for the enclosed theme but since I'm not near a booth, I found other ideas to use. (=
I love this photo.....that booth's mistake is definitely your treasure.
