Weekly Photo Challenge: Selfie

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.

The end.

Oh, except, if you would like a peek at others’ selfies, click here.
