This week’s weekly photo challenge is to take a selfie, which was named 2013’s word of the year by the Oxford English Dictionary. It’s a photo taken of oneself. It’s the perfect photo prompt for me, because I’m totally narcissistic. I need a reason to take a selfie? Shoot.
I’ll be honest, I won’t be able to get anything as cool as Karen Shatafian’s Wahine Wednesday surfing selfies, but I think I can try to denigrate art to a more common pursuit – case in point:
Driving a forkift, selfie in the mirror. Sitting in front of a roll-off dumpster, in case you are wondering.
So . . . its an interesting coincidence that the PBS Idea Channel’s latest video is about selfies, asking “why do people hate them?” I recommend watching the video and weighing in on the comments.
This post was prompted by the Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge.
