jacobs_samples.jpgThis half of is currently relocating from upstate New York to Southern California, and on the way, I’ve tried to find a few photobooth locations I haven’t seen before. Sadly, I only came across one along the road, but I also happened upon one here in Los Angeles.

At Sparky’s Roadhouse Café in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, we enjoyed a great meal, a beer from their huge selection, and a classic Model 11 photobooth. The booth turns out some great black and white photos, and each strip goes for two dollars (or a little more) in quarters.

Yesterday, wandering along Melrose in Los Angeles, I spotted a photobooth in the Marc Jacobs store, a booth that is apparently only there for a short time as part of a promotion. The booth is free, “one per customer,” and is also a nice black and white, a Model 25.

We’ve already got a number of photobooth locations in LA, but I’ll be on the lookout for more now that we’ll be living here — any advice is most welcome.

    I’m going there. A free b/w photobooth session is outstanding.

    If you’re in Downtown L.A. stop by Bar 107 on 107 W. 4th street corner of 4th and Main. They have a b/w booth for $2.00 . Also Downtown is an arcade on Broadway between 8th and 9th streets inside is a $3.00 color booth.

    Thanks, Edward — the 107 booth has been on my list for awhile, but I hadn’t heard about the arcade booth, so I’ll be sure to check both out.
