the selfie stick

NOTE* I hate the word selfie, the word just reeks of arrogance and self absorption and I can’t even bring myself to say to word out loud without putting on a mean girl accent and saying beetcchh after and cringing.
I especially hate that it just doesn’t make sense when there is more than one person in the image.  It should be called selvie like ourselves unless you are a conjoined twin, but does that even work?

I felt like such an asshole taking my first picture at Shek O beach but I was really happy with the results. I managed to get everyone in the frame as well and the gorgeous landscape which completely eradicated my embarrassment of holding a selfie stick.  I am also a huge GoPro fan and their YouTube channel just made me want to go out to film, photograph and travel, oh and also get a selfie stick. (Gosh it’s even hard typing the word.)

Heres why I gave in…

1. I am super paranoid about getting a stranger to hold my camera/phone and help take a photo then turn my back to walk a couple of metres away from them. I just have this vision of this stranger saying “okay a little further back!” Then legging it.

2. The…. stick only set me back $49HKD from computer shop in Hung Hom- they are all over HK and sell SD cards computer fans, games and more.

3. It has a 1/4 inch thread tripod mount which enables me to attach my waterproof camera to it as well as my Iphone.

4. I’M GOING ON HOLIDAY.

5. Just look at the photos…

One thought on “the selfie stick

  1. Just a week ago I spoke with someone re: how a stranger can steal your phone. I don’t like saying selfie either but a selfie stick adds safety. And true, Ellen’s Oscar “selfie” wasn’t a selfie 🙂
