When selfies go wrong

Yeah, so I've mentioned before that I hate photos of myself.  And I hate that sometimes I have to send people photos of myself.  Like today.  I had a gentle reminder from someone that they're waiting for me to send a bio and a photo for a talk I have to do this January.  So OF COURSE I can't find any j-peg deals on my computer, so I run outside and start taking disastrous selfies.  Which you can see for yourself.
Here.

Yes.  People always like photos of walls behind your head.

Objects are larger than they appear  . . . (thanks Gary Larsen)

Hahahahaha!  I LAUGH in the face of danger!

And then I decide to tuck my chin in front of the camera and laugh some more.  Hahahahaha!

Ooooo!  Perky!

Less perky. . . but with branches coming out of my ears!

Suspicious Face

I'm in the dark.  As usual.

I had a neck once.  It was a good one.  I miss it.

And yet there you are as beautiful as life, almost, in each of these pictures. Beautiful you.

This made me laugh so hard, it turned into a coughing fit. Thank you for that.

Ann, I have my camera here in Midway. Is it too late to offer a little help?

Nothing wrong with this pictures. Even the "shadow" Cannon is mysterious and interesting.

I like the "larger than appears" choice for myself. Performs a double-chin-ectomy with no pain or cost! But you do NOT a second chin, but the up-close-and-personal shot is hard to resist. You are toooooo cute!

I agree with link2literacy, photo number 2! "Go big or go home", I think the professional photographers always say. Right? They say that.

But seriously, that's my fav, and not in an ironic favorite sort of way.
