The internet, the iPhone and Instagram have brought many joys into the world. They also brought us “The Selfie” – you know when you take a picture of yourself in the mirror?!? It’s intrinsically lame, it just is. And we all do it. At least those of us with blogs. Then I remembered the photo below from Kyle DeWoody’s place and thought, that picture is cool and sexy, and it’s mostly because of the camera!
There is something sexy and voyeuristic about a woman taking her own photo, I wrote in my post about Kyle, who collects photography in this genre. So in addition to my self portrait above (which I love!), I pulled a few of my favorite “Selfies” from around the web.
Thoughts on self portraits? Have any of you done one? I love the one I made because it feels so representational of me: bathing suit, floral shirt, cookie-made necklace along with coral bead necklace from Croatia, and the camera, the camera that goes everywhere with me – It just feels like me. I hate showing my face in my photos, so this feels perfect.
