Mr SW is in the process of renewing his passport and therefore his passport photo. The instructions include:

“We recommend that, where possible, glasses should be removed.”


Could someone, please, give me an instance of where glasses cannot be removed :? :o

    :lol: I love your lateral thinking :lol:

    Actually, the short-sighted one has answered his own question. He went to the High St photographer (Same price as the supermarket booth) after realising that, in attempting to fulfil all the requirements of positioning, his glasses would have been on and off more frequently than the proverbial drawers.
