selfie of dog at my feet


Thursday June 21st is National Selfie day.  National Selfie day was established just 4 short years ago, but the act of taking self portraits started to become very popular with the advent of cell phones which had a camera attachment.  While the trend for selfie’s may have become popular at this time, I would challenge any photographer to say they never took a selfie before cell phones.  Since I loved photographs and camera’s so much, I remember taking pictures of myself and friends on the dance floor of the clubs and events we used to go to in order that we would have a remembrance of being there.

My dog Declan aided me in establishing an image that included me.  I wanted the photograph to portray what I do and not just a picture.  The first image portray’s what I often see.  Declan at my feet expectantly looking up to see if I have a ball or a treat for him.  He was not crazy about the fact that I had a camera.

The next image is of me at work taking a picture of Declan. I love reflections.
