Selfie fail

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. I have never been into selfies but have attempted a few over the years.

Can u see me2
The green chair is in the park at the South end of the Smith Avenue High Bridge.  Often when I walk by the park I see people sitting in the chair and posing for the camera.  I point that out so that you know my idea is not original.

I thought it would be fun to try one and get the chair in the picture too. I put my camera on the tripod and got out my remote, climbed into the chair only to discover that the camera’s “auto off” function had kicked in.  Got out of the chair, changed the setting and tried again.  Proving once more that ‘do it yourself’  isn’t always the best way to go.

The chair is much bigger than I thought and I think a different camera angle may have worked better, but mission accomplished.  After all of these years, I have a photo of myself in the green chair, and for some reason a bruised knee . . not pictured.

I write this ten years ago and thought I would repost it just for fun. The chair is still there and it is still a popular spot for selfies and group portraits. I have even seen wedding parties photographed in the chair. If you are looking for a unique picture for holiday cards the chair might work.
