Weekly Photo Challenge: Selfie

Photo on 12-09-13 at 1.22 PM #5

Good morning from a saturated Hastings.  We are in for a wet weekend so a great time to be at the computer.

This week’s challenge by The Daily Post is a dreaded one.  Selfie.  That is something I absolutely hate.  I love being behind the camera, definitely not in front of it.  Actually this week I made it onto the front page of our local free newspaper.  In full view.  This happened when I was filming the memorial service for the 1931 earthquake on Monday.  I did know that there were lots of photographers around taking photos, but didn’t take any notice of them.  Even when I looked at the paper I didn’t notice who was this woman was holding a cell phone up.  It was my husband who noticed.  And my mother-in-law who rang me up to check it was actually me.   But that doesn’t count as a selfie.

On the local paper website they have one page dedicated to the worst selfies of the week – not a pretty sight.  Downright embarrassing I say.  This is the one and only selfie that I have taken and that is using the Photo Booth on the computer.

Anyway here are some other selfies to enjoy:

Good evening from a wet and miserable Hastings evening.  All day it has been trying to rain and now it has come to stay.  So here is a great way to brighten up my day with these sunflowers.  Again these come from my husband’s workplace as the children are fascinated with how tall they are.  They are about 7″ and have several branches instead of one tall big stem. The bonus was the huge bumble bee on one of them.  It was just too busy collecting nectar that it didn’t even notice a huge lens pointing at it.

Thanks for visiting and check out Irene’s blog with her gorgeous hibiscus flowers.  Such a show.
