I have this issue with selfies. Actually, several.
Point One: I’m of an age (58) for whom selfies are not A Thing. I grew up at a time when snapping portraits of oneself with a camera was simply not feasible. You wanted a picture of yourself at X Location or Y Event, you had to hand your camera to someone and ask them to do the honors. There were these things called camera timers where you could set up to snap, then rush into place for the photo, but those were not part of my experience.
Since acquiring a computer with a camera, and shortly afterward, a smartphone, in the past couple of years, I now have the ability to take selfies. Which brings me to Point Two.
I look hideous in selfies. I have yet to take one in which I didn’t look like either (a) the Bride of Jabba the Hutt or (b) my mother. My mom is not an unattractive woman, but she is 96, and I’m … not.
I’m told that a selfie stick might improve things. But it seems a tad narcissistic to invest in a device for the sole purpose of making myself look better in photos, when the alternative is to simply ask a third party to do the honors.
Humankind survived for decades after photography was invented without “selfie” technology. I am comfortable asking for Joe Random Fellow Tourist/Bystander to do the deed. What about you?
