I love finding Photo Booths where I do not expect them to be. Woo-hoo for finding one in The Lougheed Town Centre in Burnaby, BC, Canada. The Lougheed Mall is accessible by SkyTrain along the Millennium Line or by numerous buses from various parts of the Lower Mainland. It's a major shopping centre in central Burnaby.

The Photo Booth is located between The Bay department store and Safeway grocery store. The entrance is on the West side, bottom level, accessible by the SkyTrain covered walkway. It also opens up and you can see the CIBC Bank branch right as you open the doors. It's on the lower level and quite easy to see.

Four colour photos in three minutes that come out quite clear. There are the two standard backgrounds - blue & orange. I chose orange as it's one of my favourite colours and shows off my white-blond hair. After I took my photos, 4 pairs of young girls went in the booth and spent a LOT of time making funny faces and giggling. I think they had never been in one before and were watching me as I took my pictures, waited for them to be printed and then started to laugh at the seriously dorky face I made. I showed them and they were convinced.

The Lougheed Town Centre has a pretty good selection of major name stores but I now go for the photo booth. I think I need to get my kids in there soon.
