I very rarely set out to create a selfie. But if I look through my mindful photography practice photos there are dozens of examples when I appear. Why? I get excited with a bit of sunshine (I do live in Wet Wales) and the opportunities it provides.
There I am out paying attention to what I can see. Coming back to the visual every time I notice my mind has gone off on one. And then the sun comes out I see a shadow of myself and go, “Ooh, Shiny!”. The urge to create a selfie is irresistible. Most often, judging by my collection it is a shadow that excites me, but sometimes it’s a reflection or even the possibility of a silhouette. All I need is the sun and there it is. Ooh, Shiny! Here are a few of my favourites.
