Selfie Perspective

 

‘Selfie Perspective’ Fooling around in my powder room and noticed the perspective in my closet door mirrors while playing around with selfies.

I don’t like selfies of myself because they usually show my wrinkles and I don’t like selfies in general because I think they are kind of vain but I liked this photo.

Wanting to get some perspective on all the terrible revelations in the media but there are no short cuts. And I don’t think I should cut short my processing of these painful things. One story after another leaves me reeling. Wondering why this is all coming together now. Could it be because it has built up to a critical mass of evil deeds and the universe is saying, No more! Maybe it all needs to collapse of the rot so it can be reformed into something that raises us all up. ‘It’ being Hollywood, business, the news media, the art world, politics, wherever this oppression ( of women and children) has been fostered and has festered. No more.

    Hi Deborah,
    I don’t like taking selfies either, I even don’t know how to handle phone to take perfect selfies and I never tried to master this art ๐Ÿ™‚
    And yes, don’t you worry you’re looking quite elegant in picture!!

      I am usually very self conscious in photos and not used to taking selfies. I have heard that with an extension rod it works out better. Taking the photo of myself in the mirror was a good distance. Thank you, Madeeha.

        Yes Deborah, there are ways to take proper selfies but somehow I’m quite lazy to handle all this stuff ๐Ÿ™‚

    I wrote a similar post to the prompt. I like the way you wrote much better. You read my mind and I love when that happens. Makes me feel validated. Plus your selfie is muy bonita!

    First, nice picture! My grandmother used to have these big mirrors in her dining room, facing each other, and it always looked like the room just went on and on forever.

    I’ve found the best thing for me is to avoid the news. Very little of it applies to me and I can’t do anything about it. It seems to be obsessed with lurid details of everything, and politicians seem to think that their job is to perform for the media.

      Thank you, John. I have found this perspective effect in a couple of my mirrors really strange but it does make for interesting photos. I have often adhered to the same philosophy of avoiding all the bad news because it is hard to cope with it. But these recent stories about women and young men and sexual abuse have been something I wanted to bear witness to because they are speaking truth to corrupted power. I have just been shocked by the scope of it in so many settings. It is a dark commentary on society but the way to change is to shine a light on this darkness not turn away.

    I think you’re correct about everything we’re reading about in the media. I do think the world needs to hit rock bottom so the Phoenix can rise from the ashes
