 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).  

That got old too.

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!
