Let me take a Selfie!

So I tent do be a photo junky, I love everything that  a photo represents. From the reason why you take a photo to the countless memories you have when you sit down and relook at photos. Sometime you have photos and you have no clue why you ever took that particular photo or what was crossing in your head when you did take that photo. Sometime I wish photos came with a instant thought captain that came across the back of it or something – something that triggered your memory on why you took this particular picture. Now photos with friends and relatives in them, well that’s a no brainer – but I also take pictures of other things, and there are time when I look at them later and wonder ” what did I ever find beautiful in this ?”  Well to each there own..

Lets talk about selfie – Selfie seem to be something that has exploded over the last couple of years.. When I was a kid I don’t remember it ever being like this. I remember how funny it was to try and take a so called “selfie” with the long skinny cameras and when you got your film developed it was half of a eye or the top quarter of your head cause you just had to guess on where the lens was to you. Now we have every thoughtable electronic with not only 1 camera on it but 2. One for you to take pictures of friends and family. And 1 of course for Selfies…

For me, I tend to love selfies – 1 because there kinda fun and 2 because I like to take pictures with my friends – who wants to be the person behind the camera – you want the memory of that photo with you in it too.. One of the things I have learned to love is my selfie stick. ( I know laugh now… ) I can’t help it – it was one of the funniest moments of my life when it came in the mail.. I decided in December of 2014 that I was going to buy my self a selfie stick…. This is the one I bought….    k2-_2e2d91d3-18e1-4d1b-84f2-047a6f435cb4_v2

So I get this selfie stick in the mail and I am so excited I take it out of the box and hook it up right then and there. MY Life as you know it changed.. LOL.. Okay so maybe not life altering but pretty close.. all of a sudden the world is so far.. I can now take pictures of me and my friends with out my face being so close to the screen.. I think Life is great.. Blue tooth – hit a button and poof 4 ft away and a beautiful picture arose…  20141201_082252(0) Oh yeah – that me trying to use this stupid stick.. My Friend Adrianne is just staring at me at this point as I fumble through the buttons trying to figure this out.. But then this happened..   20141201_082303   First photo great no problem… Then I decide to take a selfie with my selfie stick…  20141201_082416  That didn’t turn out the best… Then the giggles started.. I have a hard stopping when I get the giggles… The selfie stick experience was one of the funniest things I have ever used in my life.. 20141201_082329 20141201_082347

I only got to use it about 1 more time before the end fell out of it and it was garbage.. But for the $10-15 dollars that I paid for this selfie stick – The laughter that I had with it was so worth it. I do think I will buy another and I do wish that it was made better,,  But now a days things aren’t made to last.. Just the photos that we take are what makes the memories unforgettable.

The possibilities of the selfie stick are endless…..!!!!!!
