Don't you think a selfie-thread is missing in this forum?  ;)

Plenty of time to do selfies when you are hospitalised ...

(unfortunately, the colours in this photo won't survive web treatment)

One of my first selfies (There are older ones but they need to be digitalized)-  Summer 1981 (excuse for the bad scan)

How many do you want 8)

Here's some taken in Spain over the years, used to go there a few times a year.

The "creepy tunnel" selfie is the spitting image of you, JA :D

Apparently you go to some extreme places.

What's a selfie?

Is it just a self-portrait?

Self portraits have been around for hundreds, maybe thousands, of years.

The word "selfie" is new in terms of language.

It arose when it became viable to hold the camera, directly or on a device such as a selfie stick, and take a usable self portrait.  Such photos are quite different from the traditional self portrait taken with a mirror or a timer.  They have an immediacy and informality which makes them a specific art form.

It is a useful word which conveys a specific type of photograph.

So let's use the word for that type of photography, and not dilute it by amalgamating it with the traditional self-portrait.

Showing all the distortion of which a Canon S90 is capable.
