Well after reading the T.O.Star today and the Banff selfies I thought we should have something like here.
So the rules just a link of the pic and the location and a link to the story what ever site it is on.
We will let the picture tell the story and if there is interest in the location the viewer will do some more research on how to get there.

We might need a true legal opinion on this but in my opinion a "selfie" is a photograph taken by the subject while holding the device recording the image. Use of a camera timer does not qualify as a "selfie".

From Wikipedia.......

A selfie is a type of self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone. Selfies are often associated with social networking. They are often casual, are typically taken either with a camera held at arm's length or in a mirror, and typically include either only the photographer or the photographer and as many people as can be in focus. Selfies taken that involve multiple people are known as "group selfies". In August 2013 the Guardian produced a film series titled Thinkfluencer exploring selfie exposure in the UK. Denoting a pathological condition: Selfieism.

According to that entry the first "selfie" was taken in 1939 and while the photographer did not maintain contact with the camera through the entire process it was done without the aid of an assistant or via any mechanical or electronic assistance.

I would call an image taken with a timer as a "self-portrait" rather than a "selfie".

Ok I changed the rules... to include self portraits..... :wink:
I wouldn't want to damage my lenses with a closeup.... :oops:
All the pics in the Star story would be self portraits...
I will let recped contact the star to get them to run a correction.... :rofl:
I look forward to see if they will... :lol:
In some pics I feel it adds a lot of depth to the scene.

All the "selfie" stuff is just so much fragmented Facebook to me. It gets to be Narcissus staring at the reflection in the pool.

And for me it gets fbuttugly.. I tried that selfie in La Verendrye last June.. I tried so hard to have a pleasing countenance... My finger is tired from pressing "delete"

Lets look at things more beautiful. Surely on canoe trips the focus ought to be other than our mugshots.

I liked the artistic view of the images in the article, and I am sure there are many here who have similar type photos either in the canoe or like mine above.
Like I said I love the depth it gives the photograph.
And the appearance of you being the one taking the image.

We always stop by Holland Lake on the way through Montana to the Uuper Missouri. We didnt have a canoe with us(we rent from an outfitter) but our next door campsite mates had a rickety old aluminum canoe they let us take out.

Revisiting this thread as we approach paddling season. Let's get those canoe selfies this season :thumbup:

Wayne and I were the only ones on the lake for this shot! We setup the shot in the true definition of a selfie.

This was taken years ago on a Teamgami Trip down the Obabika River
