NaBloPoMo prompt: Do you like taking selfies? Why or why not? Photo theme is “You”.
I take selfies. I don’t publish them. I keep them to track the progression of time. I don’t want to expose anyone to them, I mean how often have you seen terrible selfies as profile pictures?
But here’s the thing – do these people think that they look terrible? I have just made a judgement based on my view of the world. And I have no doubt that others make the same judgement of my selfies based on their view of the world.
I often wonder if the image I see in the mirror is the same image that other people see. I have green eyes but other people see hazel. Are they colour-blind? I know I’m not.
The thing with selfies is that I can take photos until I get one that I think is as perfect as it can be. I can hide flaws and enhance my best features. The rest I trash. I am in full control of the process.
What is real and what is not? What is reality anyway? Do I look like I look or do I look like others think I look like?
Before I go down a rabbit hole, let me post some recent selfies. These are off course the best ones, all the terrible ones have been trashed. Well…I think they’re good enough to post…
Are you a selfie taker? Why or why not?
