The selfie generation

My generation is vain. Yes, yes we are. We can't deny that we absolutely cannot go to a trip or a party without a camera. We all would like to "preserve" moments and post them onto Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. It's really an insane thing, and even our parents and elders are catching on. We have a thing for posting one picture out of thousands that we have taken. Admit it, you take about thirty pictures, and upload only half of them.

So when our professor told us that our final requirement for our subject would be self portraits, you could only imagine our reactions. Yes, we were ecstatic! We finally could be vain and actually get something profitable out of it. Our professor told us to pass the best five pictures, but like I said, I took like a hundred pictures and painfully chose just five. Without further ado, here are my best five pictures. Most of these were taken by my faithful photographer, the camera stand. :D





So far, I got a great grade out of this, and the remaining other pictures are stored for my "future" profile pictures. Do you consider yourself as a part of the selfie generation?

  1. I don't know if it is just your generation that is vain or if it is being a blogger. I don't go anywhere with out my camera. I might just miss that great picture that would go so well on my blog.

  2. No, I am not one of the selfie generation. I so rarely take pictures I don't even own a camera and the one on my phone--well I can't get those few pics onto my computer--Love the pic of you looking at your pics!

  4. I am much older than you are, but I do take photos all of the time! Your photos are great and I can see why you got a good grade!

  5. I actually don't consider myself one of the selfie generation. I actually hate taking pictures of myself and I'm usually the one behind the camera. There are very few photos of me but now that I have a little one I think I need to take a few more.

  6. I am not a selfie generation either and I just don't get it. I do take a lot of great pics and upload to Instagram, but never photos of myself. Love the ballet photo!

  8. Yes, our generation is vain. I couldn't even walk past a mirror without looking at myself years ago.

  9. Well, I wouldn't say that I am a big selfie taker. However, my daughter is a HUGE one. I cannot tell you how many photos she has on her phone and Ipad and how many times she posts them on Instagram.

  10. Great pictures! If I had to try to figure out who you are based on those five pictures I would leave with an image of a girl who loves dancing, loves photography,loves capturing memories, loves her family and friends, enjoys getting out and about, and enjoys reflecting on life. :)

  11. I am not a selfie taker, but I am guilty of taking about a hundred pictures of my kids or crafts or friends and then finding the best ones for preservation. I think selfies are just fine when they look like the above shots you took - classy, interesting, and imaginative. It's the girls(and guys) in the bathrooms I can't stand...
