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:

  1. I know the feeling Raewyn. It’s much better to be behind the camera and taking photo’s of nature. That is a beautiful photo of you by the way. 😀
