Personally, I’m not much into taking “selfies.” Really, for every halfway decent image of myself there would probably be a thousand that would stop a bear in its tracks.
So this week’s challenge slowed me down a bit. But then I got to thinking about something a bit less obvious than snapping an impulsive moment with my cellphone camera.
One of my favorite posts on this blog was one about self-portraits. I end up taking my own selfies, though inadvertently, every time I photograph one of my vintage Christmas designs.
So here’s a little game of hide-and-seek for you all. Can you spy me?
How about here? And more than once even!
It’s a quad selfie here (at least). Maybe I ought to win a prize for this one!
It’s a selfie with an elfie! Tee hee.
So then I got to thinking that my definition of a “selfie” is “a photo of self taken by said self.” Right?
I’ve been playing around with some digital watercolors. This is an image of a tabletop arrangement that has a photo of me when I was 17 years old in it. It’s in the back, behind the little round picture of my beloved Gussie Fink-Nottle (Greatest Cat That Ever Lived). So there you are: photo of self taken by self.
