A Series of Unflattering Selfies, by Salem



Kitties!

Salem here.

I decided that this week *I* would be the one to pawticipate in The Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.  After all, how hard can taking a photo be--Mommy manages and Cod knows she's not the brightest bulb in the chandelier.
As it turns out, it's much harder than you might think.  Firstly, you have to aim the camera at your face and not your paws!

Secondly, think about the angle--this one is perhaps a little, erm, weird.

Thirdly, you should attempt to get your entire face in focus...

...and last but not least, try for a pleasant expression!
hmph.




Happy Sunday!

  2. We understand your need to take control Salem. But sometimes we let the beans do the hard work and we just make them jump through the hoopla. But of course we must say you look very good indeed I. The last picture.

  4. We prefer the pics that are more, mmm, what's the word....candid!
    No problem showing nose holes, weird eyes, or spot #13s here.

  8. You are a fast learner, Salem, I would think you were a professional selfie photographer from that set of shots. I like the second one- it makes you look very regal!

  18. Geez, I thought all that was needed was to point and click. That looks like far too much work for a fellow dim bulb.

  19. Salem...you have mastered it! Your photos are purrfect, and we actually like selfie paw shots, but the entire face shots are the bomb! Good job! Have an Easy Sunday.

  22. Salem, it's not true about not being the brightest bulb. All tuxie are clever. So clever they don't want to do silly selfies. Thank COD you didn't have to wear a bow like Merlin.
