a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.
Well, deprived of Facebook Profile pictures for myself, I decided to try selfies. Like.A.Boss! But then again, I thought how can I add value to the entire ecosystem of people taking selfies? Well, while I am still yet to fiddle with that, I Googled about “Men selfies” and “Themes for male selfies”. Let us not discuss the first few Google results on this blog. 😛 The world today requires a set of good, err – socially viewable and publishable set of men’s selfies on a sort of popular website.
I do not know how much of my time I shall be able to devote to this. But I will definitely try. I tried shooting myself in 2011, when the word “selfie” did not appear in the Oxford dictionary. And those were weirdly amateurish. This time, I want to make it good, better than previous ones (that goes beyond saying) and at times, intentionally stupid. Many of my friends tried selfie’s. Of them, the most recognised is Tanu Nejagal of Delhi. She is real good at this. My close friend – Koustav also tried it. I’ll share with you, few photographs. If you have shot selfies and want to share your work, do leave a comment with the link to your selfie.
My First trials to selfies:
Koustav Ghosh’s selfies:
Well, the most enthisiastic group of selfie lovers are the young brigade. Not many kids whom I am close to are fascinated by selfies. Of the few, I’ll paste few of their selfies.
