Packing one-by-one into a little photo booth at the Orange County Fair, Kristen and her friends crammed, shoved and fought their way into the tiny space. The 3 fellas, myself included, waiting, laughing nearby as the flailing of feet and shins peering out from the bottom of the mini curtain proved to be too much to not break a smile and let out a chuckle. The simple joy it brought these 4 girls was enough to make anyone passing by stop and notice. Especially compared to the 3 younger girls, dressed in their Raider best, in the booth to the right waiting for their gangsta-lean photos to cook in the photo booth oven. Eye contact was ill-advised with these ladies. No telling when their 10-years-too-old, grilled corn wielding boyfriends might come wondering back with an anger from the overpriced beer fix. (I’m not making judgments, just observations. Don’t hate mail me. haha)
Shot with my T2i loaded with the 50mm, flash-less, while the ladies gathered for the all-important review of their $6 photos freshly baked from the machine. Slight “lomo” effect added in photoshop for that hip, cool, aged “authenticity”.
