I spent an incredible amount of time this weekend looking at prom pictures and one thing kept springing up in my mind. That big question is this, why do people take pictures of themselves ALL THE TIME? Take a look at a few of these. I had to alter them to protect myself the innocent.
Okay, I can understand that sometimes you might want to do this. If it’s a “special” time and you really need to capture that moment or you’ll just die and nobody is around to take it for you but COME ON PEOPLE. We can see that arm!!
That picture on the left up there has me about speechless. It’s the most unflattering shot I can imagine. That big ol arm “just there” like that. Not only this but I’ll bet you there were 20 or more shots like this. It’s obviously a party. Obviously there are other people around. Why not give your phone or camera to someone else to take for you? So you can look “somewhat” normal. So not everything is kind of tilted around. I just don’t get it. These photo’s aren’t good. Are these people not seeing them the way the rest of us do?
One more thing as long as I’m at it is why do young people seem to think in shot after shot that we need to see all the way down their throat?
Believe me, I see a LOT of these. And people, boys do it too. It’s not just the girls.
Okay, I’m sorry if I hurt anyones feelings. If you’ve done this, please, I’m sorry. I just do want you to know though, we really can see your arm no matter what you do.
Anyone else have anything?
