  1. I love bones and dead things in general. I’ve always wanted to have a skull of my own. Memento mori, don’t you know. Skull photographs will have to do for the moment. Great Halloween post!

      Perhaps you “have a skull of your own.”:-)

        Hello Photobooth Journal,
        I saw this story today, and thought of you and your blog:
        “Suspect Who Robbed Illinois Photo Booth Caught on Camera:
        Police have a clear image of a suspect who they say robbed cash from an Illinois photo booth. In fact, they have several images because the machine took his picture during the alleged act.
        The man entered the booth at Funway Amusements in Batavia where he pried open the cash drawer and took approx. $75.00 in cash, Batavia Police Department said. Approximately $75.00 in damage was caused to the machine.
        The device is designed to take photographs when it senses tampering to the cash drawer, it said in a news release.
        The robbery took place in November but the report was delayed until the machine’s owner could access the photos.”
