WHY do blue badge photos make you look like prisner

WHY do blue badge photos make you look like prisner

Could it be reflection of our diseased state :)

Anyway thought i would send em one sporting my vest this year.

Think next year might send-'em one with me stood on my head.

To be honest given how unwell have been and previous refusals would they even notice.

:) I try to hide and takes year as keep looking away :o

Shop refused to do mine anymore.

My last one looked like i had stroke AND blue badge people refused my request but i won it on appeal.

Even appeals they have now tightened up.

I cant understand criteria they say its to help with mobility BUT if mobiles they say you don't need one.

Oh JAS! The vest is very fetching and the Council will be hypnotised into giving you a Blue Badge.

Pete has to renew his soon so let's hope that goes ok. Xxx

Your right Jeff, some of these ID photos don't look good, my blue badge one isn't too bad but my passport one makes me look like a ninety year old with out glasses. I am sure no one looks at them anyway just laminate to the document. Like the vest idea the modern casual look. :) :)

Same with a driver's license, it's to show that this is the worst that you are going to look when you get stopped by the police. They won't even let you smile for the pic.

Also, mirrors in dressing rooms with poor lighting. I guess they figure that when you try something on, this is the worst that you will ever look in it.
