Weekly Photo Challenge: Selfie

Post a Week

This probably is as close as I’ll get of doing a Selfie.   I don’t use a camera phone so I wouldn’t be doing a selfie . I just happen to have this one that I took of myself last year.it just looked good in the car window at the time.

I do have a few others that someone else took of me with my granddaughter. This probably one of my favorites.

Here I am carving a turkey that I finished BBQ.This was Thanksgiving dinner with my mother-in –law and my wife at Ventura,California. I was a lot younger back then and Life was good. Nancy and I would good down to this place 2 to 3 weekends a month. People would ask were are you going this weekend and we would tell them to our beach front property.

I can’t find too many picture of me because I’m usually the one taking the pictures. Or I don’t like them.

This mistake is easy to fix – just rotate the photo 90 degrees. The biggest Problem is that it is boring. It really is a 6 foot BBQ and a very nice grill at that. Just has no pizzazz.

Here’s a mistake because I didn’t pay attention to what was in the foreground. I needed to move so that the satellite dish was not in the picture.

This a common mistake , Not keeping objects in are pictures perpendicular or horizontal. In all the years that I have shooting photos I still make this mistake.  Especially with horizons, pictures look so much better when they are straight.

One thing that I was taught in Photo school good photographers never show there mistakes . They trash them.
