I love my parents. They aren’t incredibly tech-savvy, but they try. They also don’t mind being inspiration for my blogs.
So thanks Mom and Dad for helping me with this post on the importance of framing a “selfie,” (or self-portrait for you fellow not-so-tech-savvy travelers).
Here’s Mom and Dad’s first-ever travel selfie. (Or so I thought…)
- Sidelit by the warm Florida sun. Check.
- Holding the phone centered between them. Check.
- Camera circle-thingy level with their faces. Check.
- Big smiles that say, “Even though you are in Chicago where it is -5 with 8 inches of snow on the ground, we are going to tell you it is a chilly 62 degrees here, requiring us to wear our Disney World lightweight jackets.” CHECK.
Despite #4, I was still impressed with my father’s selfie skills.
Minutes later I received the following photo with this note: “Actually, this was my first attempt.”
Thanks for another lesson to live by, Mom and Dad.
