A solo traveller’s selfies

As someone who takes a helluva lot of photos and generally travels solo, it’s nice to have one’s face (or body) in a few pics sometimes. This gives me two options: ask someone else to take it or take the ubiquitous selfie.  I generally opt for the latter as handing over a DSLR camera often causes confusion (unless said person has one hanging round their neck).

However, what happens then is a selfie in the form of reflections and random body parts as I often find if I turn the camera on my face, well, it’s just not as fun or arty.

I actually have a lot more of my feet, so consider yourselves lucky at having a narrow escape.  Smiley face.

“A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website”
