Self Portrait Sunday

I used to be pretty irritated with selfies.  They seemed so self indulgent.  Then at some point I warmed up to them and I stopped putting so much judgement around them.  There's something about facing yourself and capturing that moment and saying 'I am here.'  'I exist.'  Really it's just like self-portraiture, which through the years we've qualified as an art form.  Why can't selfies get a similar treatment?  Maybe they could use a new name so we can embrace them as more than cheesy narcissistic snaps.  I hereby switch to calling them self portraits even if it's taken with my phone like this one.  ;) The term selfie should now be considered to be retired and can go take a nap.
