Photobooth: Don't Knock It Till You've Tried It

Sometimes, all it takes is a single sense to remind you of something substantial. In this case, an orange photobooth curtain reminded me of some fresh fruit and a corny joke.

Knock knock.
Who’s there?
Banana.

Orange you glad I didn’t say banana again?

I’ve been challenging myself lately to tell good stories using photobooths. Creativity comes from constraints, I like to say. One day I was sitting in a photobooth, waiting for my newest strip to come out, when I noticed how orange everything was around me, my argyle sweater blending in with photobooth curtain. I thought that it would be cool to dress in all orange, and get a really monochromatic photostrip — but that’s not a story. I began to think, “What else is orange?” The quintessential orange prop is an orange, of course!

The Banana Knock Knock Joke is one my kids like to tell, sometimes we go on for so long, that we can’t understand each other through our own choking-laughter. It’s also good physical exercise to laugh so hard, I like to think.

We bought the bananas and oranges at a supermarket on the way to the photobooth. I bought multiple oranges of different shades, the first test strip was a little too red, but the second orange was orange enough. The kids laughed a lot as they stood outside the booth telling the joke over and over again.

I hope you enjoyed this as much as we did!

(No bananas were harmed during the making of these photos!
