you’ve got a gift

Posted in: General

My new driver’s licence arrived in the post yesterday (or ‘Driver licence’ as the card is actually entitled.) For the last week or so I’ve been using a signed piece of paper with a receipt for $40 stapled to it in lieu of the usual plastic card with my photo on it. An interim measure until my real licence appeared. I braced myself for the inevitable bad photo experience: would it be police line-up bad? Or lunatic asylum bad? Or broad spectrum, run of the mill bad? Would a loop of hair on the top of my head appear as out of nowhere like on my passport? There were so many ways the photo could go wrong.
Instead, freakishly, I saw on the card quite an acceptable photo. Moreso, it was actually one of the better photos of me out there. Really quite flattering. All praise to the young man at the PhotoPoint in the Australia Post Mail Centre in Elizabeth St, Melbourne. Whoever you are, I’m very grateful! While I would like to say to him “Get out there into the real world of photography – you’ve a gift. You’re wasted on the everyday licence/passport photo machine”, I’m also loathe to give up ready access to a more than adequate source for 3 x 2.5 cm headshots when required. I might keep him a secret for a little longer!
