Selfie-portraiture, whether you love it or hate it, is an expression of the ever-evolving culture in our digital age. I like having my picture taken, but I usually hate the pictures of me. I frequently look heavier than I am, my hair is a mess, my nano head stands out and I look like a line-backer, and the list goes on and on…

For this challenge, we were asked to snap a creative selfie…and I had to laugh. A couple of weeks ago, I was bored sitting in the school parking lot. I didn’t have a book, a crossword puzzle, or a magazine, but I did have my little camera…so I played with it.  I received plenty of odd looks and stares from my neighbours in the vehicles around me, so I really hammed it up!

I’ve looked at some of the other “selfies” taken by photographers doing this challenge, and most of them aren’t showing their faces…keep that in mind…
