I love taking photos of others.
But if you try to take a photo of me, the end result will likely be a blurry hand blocking the lens out of habit, the side of my face as I look away or a great shot of me rolling my eyes.
I’m not keen on being in photos so there is no surprise that selfies have never been my thing.
But seeing how we’re in a selfie world, I thought that it was high time that I try a few just for the hell of it.
This is how it went…
Wait, how do you keep your hand steady and click the button at the same time? My arm is already tired.
Oh, the trick to set the timer delay? Okay, a delay of 2 or 5 seconds? Maybe I should ask the teenager next to me here on the beach.
Hmmm, maybe not.
Do people still do those ridiculous duckfaces and if so, are they inappropriate for a woman my age?
How do I not squint with all this sunlight? And wait a minute, I’m facing the wrong way and I can’t even see my own face ’cause it’s so bright…
It took me all of 5 minutes to jump head first off of the selfie train.
But I did get some great shots of my favorite sun hat, like this one. Pretty nice, eh?
