Yes, I used my selfie stick!

And a blonde Telecaster too..?

Well spotted, Sten!  :D  That is actually G&L Asat Classic, but essentially a Telly.

I've barely handled a George&Leo but I understand they are very good intruments.

Leo Fender never stopped improving his instruments, and Asat Classic was practically the last incarnation of Telecaster.  Its playability is improved, and its control panel, bridge and pickups are perfectly compatible with those of the original Telly.

Ok, following up on the theme started by Susanne, here's mine



And no, even using 3D glasses don't improve this at all ;)

Ha, I knew it would be a good idea to ask photographers for their selfies!  8)
Jan Anne, you definitely are the king of selfies! :D My favourites are the ghost- and the creepy-tunnel-selfie, I just love those.
And we even have one taken with a selfie stick! (Akira, you sure know how to put a lot of stuff in a very small space!)

I hope there's more to come!

Show-off of me and my new (to me) Df with a chrome 45/2.8 AI-p

Chris you are an inspiration :)

Great thread, Smuse!
Of course Akira's selfie is simply something special.

So if I understood correctly I am not posting my selfie but a self portrait.

Some are more camera portraits.
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

As per Anthony, a proper selfie should not use any mirror or similar to create the final image. One would still need a lens though to capture the image I surmise.

Thus this winter selfie obtained with a 10 mm f/5.6 OP Fisheye-Nikkor ought to qualify? My arms substituted for the selfie stick.

Is it a selfie if you set your camera to self timer?
Must you not hold the camera with your hands and/or selfie stick for it to be an official selfie?
