While I am working on the sorting of the Photo Fun Challenge photos, I thought about some of the “Selfies” which are appearing today.  Some are terrific, but some ‘not-so’.   well, my mother carried her blue box Kodak with her everywhere and here is a photo of herself in our dining room mirror.  It actually turned out pretty good! Loved to watch her take pictures!
