In Search of the Perfect Selfie


SORRY that 3 of you saw this a few days ago when this posted on the wrong day put on said wrong day my a confused mine.

I was in need of a photo of my current self, to use in my Five Year Weight loss post yesterday
I started in the Bedroom Mirror.
Still Silly!
How did I come out RED?
Edit in phone and now I was PINK!
I realized I was in my dog walking Christmas Pants and changed pants.
I moved to the kitchen.
Sat the phone in the chair!

Moved to the back yard Sat on another chair
What's with the ARM?
The phots look washed out.

I sat a bucket in the chair and made the phone higher.
Positioned the back of the chair with the sun coming over its shoulder, 😁
The color was perfect.
(let me insert here, I could not see the screen of the phone, the sun was blinding me, I had to take a couple run in the kitchen, look at the phone and run back out. Exercise!}

Still with the ARMS! Still look pregnant.
I rushed inside and grabbed the pillow that holds my kindle when I read
walked through the kitchen and grabbed a big fat pillow
stacked them and sat the phone on the pillows.

The Two I used in the post!  
Photography 101, The Camera Needs to be at eye level
Never Give Up! Gotta be a good one in that cell phone somewhere.
OOPS! does that sound like I am bragging on myself?
A new set of thoughts to ponder.

I look like Johnny Johnna CASH! Just hand me a guitar!
Will they think I am crazy with so many photos of myself?
Will they think I am in love with myself?
Will they think I HAVE NO LIFE so must play with my cell phone to have something to post about?
P.S. I do this all the time, take a zillion photos before I get one to post.
Does this mean I am a lousy photographer?

Will they understand I am saying Thank you for being my friends in sign language?

The last two photos are GREAT! I like you in the dog walking pants a lot better. The print suits you, and it is just the right pop of color.

No worries on the wrong day, I have been doing that myself lately :) Great selfies, you look fabulous in red and pink too! You have done so well on your weight loss. I like black! I have about four tops in black, and pants too, for winter and summer.

Sandra some days I don't remember what I wore the day before worries about a repeat. I'm famous for those too

Hahahahaha ... I do this all the time. Trying to position the phone 'just so.'
So glad I'm not the only one! Except mine I have to use the count-down feature; it doesn't recognize hand signals.

You do look fabulous in each. But I've a question about the top collage. Why are the bottles in the first (top left) over your right shoulder, and over your left in the next one?
Oh, wait a minute. You reversed the lens?

Delightful !!

You are welcome..I'm so glad we are friends...
Wish I had your skinny legs
I think my pear shape will always be even when I loose weight.
Down a pound from last week..slow and steady..I am a turtle at this..

Everyone takes multiple photos whether or not it's admitted, Sandra, so you go right away and take them until you like the results. Congrats not only on your weight loss and maintaining it, even better. to cop a quote from Billy Crystal, a favorite of look m-a-r-v-e-l-o-u-s, my blogger friend!

I enjoy all the shots you took! Did you know that when you upload your photos to Google Drive, there are a lot of fun free filters you can use? Also in Canva. Sometimes I just goof around.
