Nothing says, "I love me" like a selfie. Street hawkers know this and were selling them in every big European city we visited. You'd see the metal sticks cluttering the horizon at every popular attraction.
I thought it would be interesting to take photos of people taking pictures of themselves.
It is surprisingly easy; your subjects have no idea what you're up to. They're focused on their I-phones trying to get their smiles just right.
Some people did it so long their smiles started to hurt.
This project got boring quickly so I tried taking pictures that looked like selfies (but were not).
A big thanks to Brigitte and Francesca for agreeing to pose for my Not Really a Selfie project.
On the balcony of our apartment, Canal St. Martin, Paris, France. Afterwards I went inside and
I decided to save $3 and make a selfie stick from scratch. Here's how: You tape your camera backwards on the end a stick and set the timer for ten seconds. You then
hold it out in front of you like you're roasting a hot dog on a tonga torch.
You smile, the camera clicks and voila, you're now part of the selfie set!
