Lights! Camera!

Lights! Camera! Selfie!

It never ceases to amaze me what wonders technology can bring into our everyday lives to make life easier, yet at the same time, perhaps more absurd than ever before.

Let’s consider the snapping of the ever humble selfie. I mean, I thought it was simply a matter of extending one’s arm out so that you take on the appearance of a Romanesque sculpture and then trying to look normal whilst getting your thumb to click the ever elusive button to take the shot. But technology and our love of all things gadgety has enabled businesses to boom in a society that loves sharing images of themselves. Check out MacWorld’s 7 selfie enhancing products. Personally, I think you can’t go past the Joby GripTight GorillaPod Magnetic XL.  I think using it might be simpler than calling it by name.

So, what’s your selfie tool of choice?

Fear not, no judgement here. You’re in the safety of the world wide web.

    Selfie accessories. That’s all we need. I almost got taken out by a selfie stick on a recent trip. Missed whacking me on the head by mere millimeters. 😄

      Well, good to hear you survived… I must admit, I find the whole selfie thing highly amusing. When we go on holidays there are a few things we always do, such as check out the local supermarket – you learn so much about a culture that way…and now, whenever at a tourist attraction, we sit back and observe all the selfies underway

    The world really has gone a bit crazy hasn’t it! Surely the whole point of a selfie is that is should be poorly framed because none of us have arms the length of orangutangs?!

      Nicely put Jen. It’s crazy, but I guess I still love it (sometimes shake my head in dismay, but try to remain optimistic).
