I’m not a fan of the selfie. Lately they’ve been all the rage. There’s even a song dedicated to it.
But I’ve had a few moments when I couldn’t resist. Usually they involve more than just myself – friends, a place, a moment in time. So in celebration of the Selfie here is one of my favorites.
And here’s the link to The Chainsmokers version of “Let me Take a Selfie“! Enjoy and share your favorite selfie moment.
Oh, I like that one! I’ve never had much luck with selfies…..certainly none that I’d be brave enough to post!
You don’t want to know how much of our gondola ride was used up trying to get it just right! I think that’s why our gondolier doesn’t look happy.
Lately, I’ve been taking lots of selfies to record the progress of my facial surgery. I don’t know how anybody gets a good one. I always seem to be looking towards the button, which shows my eyes looking very much like Igor in Young Frankenstein. And because I can’t resist ….
Te..he.. The eyes really pop!!
Too funny! But nobody looks like Igor! (Though I must say I loved Marty Feldman in Young Frankenstein.)
Hey – you take great pictures! Could be because everyone’s having a great time?
Most likely! Have I mentioned how much I loved Venice?
I really like this !
Thank you Mathew!
Great photo. I don’t really get the selfie either. I suppose it’s a skill worth learning. Especially since there’s a song……
I think the song is great. It pokes fun at this whole ‘selfie’ every five minutes syndrome some people have these days. Enjoy.
That’s an awesome “selfie”. Not only do you look beautiful in it but the background is engaging as well. If I had a selfie like that I would post it everywhere.
Michelle, what a nice comment. And like I said to Dianna, it took a lot of tries before we got the angle we wanted.
Maybe I’ll take one after a haircut.
Just do like me and throw on a hat!
That’s a great photo, Renee! Love the guy in the background.
I think he got annoyed with our multiple efforts to get the right shot. I don’t care. I love this picture.
Remind me to let you take a selfie of the two of us should I ever make it to your neck of the woods: Beauty and the Bitch.
A couple of friends sent me selfies pointing the camera at the mirror. In one case it was a hoot – because his face was a flash. Invisible. Inscrutable. My son – who is rather professional at photography with equipment to die for – grabbed me a couple of years ago, stood me in front of the bathroom mirror, with him behind me and clicked. Him being his ever gorgeous, his mother looking shite (having just emerged from a feverish deathbed). He didn’t see me (or the photo) that way. Proves “the eye of the beholder”.
I think we’d make a great pair of ‘blondes’ in a selfie. I can find a lot of things I’m not satisfied with about the way I look in this shot, but the joy and the place, and my friend Paula – we go all the way back to about age 14 – and my absolute adoration of Venice, all make this one of my favorite pictures.
I have never taken a selfie before and judging how I avoid cameras in general, I probably won’t any time soon! LOL Yours turned out just fine though. It is probably the photography experience showing through. 🙂
It’s the number of tries. LOL. I’m sure you’d look terrific but sometimes I wonder what people are snapping pictures of themselves for. If it’s a fabulous location, or the people around you mean something, then it doesn’t matter how you think you look. You’ll love the picture because of the moment in time.
The only selfies I take are to show my Bff a new accessory I’ve made. My selfies are usually blurred and have an old woman in them. No matter how hard I try, there she is standing where I’m s’posed to be, lol The quality would be too bad for me to post, even if I wanted too. No, I take that back, I remember I took a selfie of me in my new gardening hat that turned out ok. But nothing to brag about. lol, I may post it sometime.
I think your selfie is full of happiness and looks like a moment to remember. You did a dandy of a job taking it. 🙂
There is an old woman stalking me. She shows up in the mirror, especially first thing in the morning! Yikes! LOL.
I have to admit though, it took a dozen tries and the poor gondolier was about to get aggravated I think. But we knew it would make a nice memory!
Who are these old women who are stalking us? I think it’s a shame that there aren’t ways to protect us from them. lol
Your dozen tries paid off. You have a peach of a photo to remember the fun. 🙂
I don’t take great selfies, I think my arms are just too short 🙂
I can’t believe you don’t good selfies. Every picture I’ve ever seen of you is just gorgeous!
Nice shot. Hopefully the gondolier didn’t mind too much!
I think he might have Patti. But we were having a good time so, what the heck?
I’m not good at selfies! The few I’ve done have sort of scared me when I look at them! So no posting of mine, but I like yours! ~ Sheila
It is hard to get one that isn’t distorted in one way or another. But somehow I think yours would be good.
That’s a great picture, Renee. Well done. I haven’t quite mastered taking selfies, but now you’ve inspired me to keep trying. Thanks!
I’m no master as this game. For me the secret is lots and lots of tries.
That’s a lovely selfie.
But First… “Let me take a Selfie” hahahaa
