Selfies: Taming Down the Beauty
I've been observing the "selfie" phenomenon for a few years now. I've even taken part a few times. I'm talking about those pictures that come across your Facebook feed that include only one person taking an attractive picture of themselves. Somewhere along the line we discovered that when we stick out our arm (or selfie stick) to take our own picture, the angle, editing tools, and delete button are all at our discretion, and allow us to have full control of coming up with a great photo of ourselves. And what's left to do but share that gorgeous photo with friends and family? Seems innocent enough. Of course we always have a reason for posting another selfie; we'd never admit that it's to show off our pretty faces in better lighting this time. But we all secretly know, don't we?
