MY CAMERA SHY SELF PORTRAIT


City Daily Photo Challenge: April 1, 2015





Typically, I take awful selfies. Either my mouth is agape or my double chins are far too obvious. And they always look staged and unnatural. In short, I avoid them. Until I discovered the reflective selfie. Store windows, puddles, car windshields all have produced suitable to even nice selfies that I don't mind sharing. But bubbles?

In fact, this is the ultimate selfie. However, I only learned it was a selfie AFTER I took the shot and viewed it later on the bigger screen of my iPad. My original intention was to capture the rainbow colors of all the bubbles that shined like jewels against the sand. Little did I realize that within each of those bubbles is a self portrait of MOI! Very cool!

    1. Thank you, Julie. Actually, that's what I thought when I saw it on the bigger screen. It's what I like to call a "happy accident." Doing art is full of such surprises, don't you think?

  7. The best interpretation (along with Cloudia Honolulu blog)! I did it in more artificial (staged) way :) http://www.photoriga.com/2015/04/theme-day-my-camera-shy-self-portrait.html
