Just got out of the shower, #selfie

Selfie pic definition: A picture taken of yourself that is planned to be uploaded to any sort of social networking website. You can usually see the person’s arm holding out the camera.  A selfie is usually accompanied by a kissy face or the individual looking in a direction that is not towards the camera. Selfie pics have the best captions and hashtags.

What if our generation is still doing ‘selfie’ pics at 60, 70, 80 years old? What would the captions be? Would we continue to document our lives on social media with a selfie pic that had nothing to do with the paragraph you wrote below it? To me this is humorous to think about. So with these questions and an inspiring conversation I had with a co-worker a few days ago about how sometimes the selfie is a little over the top, sometimes annoying and sometimes completely ridiculous I came up with the “Just got out of the shower, #selfie” project.

Instead of using myself, I somehow talked my grandparents into participating. Now while you view the photos just think, this will be our generation when we are older doing exactly this. Documenting life events, even the most ridiculous unworthy of documenting life events, and pairing it with a self portrait taken in the bathroom and posting it for the world to see whether the world wants to or not.

Please enjoy the selfies and especially the captions! Thank you grandma and grandpa for really loving me!
