Methinks someone has forgotten the general narcissism of the majority of the population, along with the idea that we like to have keepsakes of memories.

The word "selfie" sucks.  The idea of capturing yourself in the moment does not.

One of my older selfies, taken in the forest in the Panama Canal Zone that existed before we gave the canal back to Panama. Second camera body on tripod and self timer. The pack mostly held other photo supplies.

After every selfie I take I promise myself that will be the last selfie.   However, once the shame and guilt wear off and I go through a dry spell where nobody else takes my picture for a few days I start taking selfies again and the cycle repeats.
