WordPress bloggers have been issued a challenge to post a selfie. Selfie, where did that word come from and when did it become such a much used one in our vocabulary? There’s no question about what it means because everywhere you go, you see people, like on the opening ceremony for the Olympics, snapping their own photo with their phones. Generally, when I see someone doing that I offer to take the picture for them because my experience with selfies is that they aren’t very flattering. Arms just aren’t long enough to take a self portrait!
Having said all that, I have taken some selfies or rather had fun with shadow play.
Snapping my shadow wasn’t intentional,
but when I turned around and saw it so clearly defined, I thought why not be my own subject. It was fun as well as a great opportunity to play around with camera settings.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

Perfect way to meet the challenge. Very clever!
I have taken a picture of myself but didn’t know the term “selfies”. Learn something new everyday!

Really fun pics! I also love the colors in your header:@)

That is really, really neat! Great imagination! 😀
I’m not a fan of selfies either. I don’t think I’ve ever taken one!
