Taking Our Pictures on Our Own

When my husband and I used to go on vacation, we would always ask strangers if they would take our picture because we had no other way of getting both of us in a nice picture showing our vacation backdrop. This was pretty awkward for both of us, because we really don’t like bugging people like that. It was the only way we were able to get nice pictures though, but that all changed a few months ago. My friend showed me a site and told me I could get selfie sticks here. I didn’t even know what that meant until I went to the site and looked.

As soon as I saw what a selfie stick was, I knew that we were going to get one for us to take when we go out. Not only would it be good for vacation pictures, but it would come in handy at other places too. Where ever we wanted to take a picture of the two of us, we would be able to with the selfie stick. That meant that we would not need to bug anyone else to take our picture for us.

I have never seen this,but now that we have our own, I am seeing it pop up more and more at different places we go to. It just makes sense since we are living in the age where everyone has a camera on their phones. I know that most phones have it where you can just hold it out and actually see yourself in it, but that does not allow for a lot of the background to be in the picture. With the selfie stick, it is the best of both worlds. It is still a close up, but it allows for so much more of the backdrop to be in the picture too.
