After a few crummy attempts to take a “selfie,” I finally got a good one today.
I have a very cheap cellphone, so that isn’t even an option. Instead, I use my 35mm SLR.
Previously, I’d point the camera at my bathroom mirror and try to figure out the correct angle to include the part of the reflected image I wanted.
Of course, the lighting is terrible, and I turn yellow in the process.
Today, I was determined to point the camera at my face and click the shutter. I was worried the flash would go off and blind me, but it did not. I figured if the first angle wasn’t right, I’d keep shooting until I got it right.
The photo is of my eye two days post-op. The puffiness is gone, but it has been bleeding enough to leave a red mark.
As I smile at the photo, the thought runs through my head that “guys like scars, gals don’t.”
It’s true! At least for me!
