The coming days I will publish pictures you sent to the Photoautomat Co Op project. There were not as many photos in the inbox as I would have hoped, but those that I received are a treasure. Thank you.
Arnaud's 4 minutes picture reminds me of when I was in Paris 1990 and tried to get a Carte Orange for the Metro. You needed a photo and I entered a photoautomat and the pictures were taken. Then I had to wait...and wait...it seemed like at least 10 minutes. The machine made a lot of strange noises, I imagined that there was a person inside hammering and cutting the photos.
When the picture finally appeared from the automat, it was not...let's say something I would show to my mother. It was extremely dark and I looked like someone that the Préfecture de police de Paris would like to have a chat with.
