Selfies--Evolved

Posted by Bob (Portland, United States) on 11 May 2018 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Been busy on other projects and haven't posted for awhile. Hopefully, I'll get some other pairings going soon and somewhat consistently.

I call the left hand picture "The First Selfie." The 1920s/30s lad is using a reflection in a storefront window to take his selfie. Note the really swell car in the background and, if you can make it out, his Brownie (?) box camera. The right hand picture, I call "Four Handed Selfie." It took the subject to hold the selfie stick and his wife/GF/Assistant to steady it--four hands. Well, at least, three.

This photoblog is a self-assignment challenge where I take pix based on old vernacular snapshots I buy in thrift or antique stores. Part of the challenge is finding snapshots for less than a buck. The original snapshot is posted on the left and my interpretation/contemporary view is on the right. I do not find an old photo and then dig through my archives to find a good match. The original pic served as a base or starting point. The interpretation may be straight forward or somewhat obtuse.
