A selfie... for the one night stand challenge...

Jerry... if you pick "selfie" out of the freakin' hat next go round, do me a favour and PUT.IT.BACK!!!!!

Thank you all so much for the views, comments and favs on my Union Station pictures from yesterday... I'm kinda bowled over by the attention these have received!

Wonderful selfie!

Why are you so shy? You have a figure to be proud of and I'm sure a face to got with your great character!
posted January 12th, 2013  
Funny how we all hate our own selfies. I love this one, and I can tell you painted them.
posted January 12th, 2013  
Great selfie!
posted January 12th, 2013  
haha....funny how we are so uncomfortable doing certain things! i am super uncomfortable setting up shots....like posing things or people....drives me crazy when i get pushed/challenged to do that..lol. In any case, this is an awesome shot.

This is excellent!!!! What a wonderful selfie! I'm going to have to fav this one!
posted January 12th, 2013  
It's fantastic!

Have I mentioned how much I love you?

Ha, this excellent. Lovin the funky hat as well :)
posted January 12th, 2013  
Just think, then how your street subjects must feel. Nice selfie ,except you have hidden your face. Not fair!

The wide Union Station shot from yesterday is my favorite.

Great creative selfie! Love the pose and hat.
posted January 12th, 2013  
Some people like selfies...young, beautiful, flawless skined people!!
I don't mind the fun ones......
The thing about a selfie is that it doesn't have to be just your face. I think this is a very expressive selfie.
Hope you had a remote...bugger running up and down the stairs to set the timer!!!!

Brilliant framing northy - Fav!

I love this! I believe some lovely pain in the arse challenged you to a selfie once before too! Man, that girl is trouble! ;) You say you don't like them, but they always come out so cool!! fav
posted January 12th, 2013  
great capture... very creative... love the steps and the hat
posted January 12th, 2013  
You're too cool! Total fav. :)

this is fabulous!! A wonderful selfie!!! fav for me! I am about to go work on mine, i hate them too and have been avoiding it all day lol!!
posted January 12th, 2013  
nice toe-nails!
posted January 12th, 2013  
Oh wow, super slick! This is an incredible composition and combo of so many challenges! Major wow!
posted January 12th, 2013  
that's amazing !
posted January 12th, 2013  
This is awesome!!
posted January 12th, 2013  
Great shot. Very much in your style with the light coming from behind you. Not sure why you are hiding your face. We might need to get Jerry to specify next time that we need to be able to see at least 1/2 of someone's face :). Great job

@jase_h tx Jase... the hat belongs to one of my boys - it's an Indiana Jones dress up hat! ;p

@onie tx Leonie... and nope - ran up and down the stairs... i do have a remote, but was really struggling with the pose ('cos it so does NOT come naturally) so had to chimp on each one...

@tryeveryday mebbe ;p ha ha ha!!! tx!!
posted January 12th, 2013  
This is a fantastic selfie - I only wish I had a staircase so I could produce a similar shot. Love it :)
posted January 12th, 2013  
I think this is awesome. Love it.
posted January 12th, 2013  
I'm with you, Northy! But love your selfie! Great shot!
posted January 12th, 2013  
@stuckinoz
Yeah....full facial selfie!!!!
posted January 12th, 2013  
ps: back to fav! Couldn't stop thinking about your shot!
posted January 12th, 2013  
Rocking selfie. Seriously, it's amazing.
posted January 12th, 2013  
You have hit this one out of the park! Awesome selfie!

Great shot...I think you captured that incognito look many of us wished we would have thought of!
posted January 12th, 2013  
Awesome selfie. Do you think your husband or boys would take a candid shot of you like this ? Chances are slim so that's what selfie is good for. You will end up with couple great shots of yourself and have fun.
posted January 12th, 2013  
@bardejov tx Bardejov... well - this would never be a candid because i would never just be hanging out there ;p and of course, my family knows better than to ever point a camera in my direction (assuming they picked one up in the first place ;p)
posted January 12th, 2013  
Northy, may i be completely frank? You are amazing me each day. I think i wasn't paying much attention to your photography (it changed recently). You have some reasonably ok days, but you are having some WOW days quite often. That is remarkable!
I wish i had mine as well.
This POV is excellent, nice pose, interesting and good light. Congrats.
posted January 12th, 2013  
You have to have a great photographers 'eye' to know how well this will work in advance, & then set up for a selfie. Absolutely great lines & composition. fv

Fabulous composition & shot. Wonderful selfie!
posted January 12th, 2013  
I LOVE this shot my dear! Awesome selfie! I love the POV and the hat makes it!! Lovely job!
posted January 12th, 2013  
This is awesome!! And for someone who hates doing selfies at least you know how to pull it off when you do do one. So I've got to fav it because I know you found it stressful and yet you did it just the same :) Way better than mine (which I haven't yet posted!).
posted January 12th, 2013  
Excellent selfie, FAV!!!
posted January 12th, 2013  
This is an awesome selfie! But I'm with you on the hating to do them, hating my own photo, and simply pretending it never got drawn out of the hat. I'd actually remove it from the hat entirely.
posted January 12th, 2013  
excellent! +fav

I had a lot of trouble as well!! And look at you all faved!!
posted January 12th, 2013  
How fabulous is this selfie!!! Creative, fun, full of spirit -- your attitude is showing perfectly! Sigh. I had the same feeling about the assignment, but not the creativity you pulled off. I admire this very much.
posted January 12th, 2013  
Pretty damn awesome selfie. Love the Indy hat too, and may I suggest taking an Indy whip selfie next time ? :)
posted January 12th, 2013  
lovely selfie, with the stairs leading towards you and the bright lighting behind you!
posted January 12th, 2013  
Ah this is great. You have everything here.. A cool pose.. Nice leading lines, great lighting. I love it.
posted January 12th, 2013  
Fav.. What a great shot

Magnificent shot. Love the lines and the highlights on each stair. All of which nicely draw the eye through the image to the top of the stairs. This is beautifully shot. I Love it.
posted January 12th, 2013  
Very cool selfie very creative ...lol - l can so tell you have painted your nails
posted January 12th, 2013  
Great setup!
posted January 12th, 2013  
Love this northy. Big fav for me as it has a great feel to it. I really hate selfies also and refuse!
posted January 12th, 2013  
You did a great job!
posted January 12th, 2013

Very cool - you nailed it without showing us too much!
posted January 12th, 2013  
this is so cool! :) you don´t have to hate sefies! you´re doing so well! :)
posted January 12th, 2013  
@gabrielklee tx Gabriel... i never know what to say to these sorts of compliments... i'm really bowled over by the response to this photo and well, to be honest, kinda surprised i was able to pull it off (especially with my husband wandering around rolling his eyes at me!) i generally find things go in cycles... a few days where everything seems to click... and then weeks where i'm not liking anything i do... you DO have your own wow days, y'know - even if you don't always think so!
posted January 13th, 2013  
This is fantastic, great light and lines, a follow and a fav.
posted January 13th, 2013  
haha! this is so funny - NOT your photo - that is brilliant - it is what you say under your photo. This is such a creative way to do a selfie.
I hate doing them - every get-pushed challenge as I read I say to myself - please not a selfie.

posted January 13th, 2013  
love the selfie! fav.
posted January 13th, 2013  
This is such a fantastic selfie. Fantastic lines, composition, everything. Fav for me.

Congrats on the Top 20 my dear :)

Look at you!! Taking a photo you hate to do and now it's up there in the Top 20. Congrats!!
posted January 19th, 2013  
congrats on the Top 20. I love the lighting in this, the leading lines, the repetition of the stairs -- for someone who does not like taking a photo of herself you came up with a winning composition.
posted January 20th, 2013  
This selfie ROCKS!! Love it.
posted January 20th, 2013  
The more I looked at it, the more it screamed "FAV ME!"...so I did. :-)

Woo Hoo - top 20 congrats!!

Wow, I guess I'll add my comment to the rest of the few thousand! :) I really love this picture. Its a nice way to have a self portrait without really looking at the camera. You deserve all these wonderful comments on this picture.
posted January 26th, 2013  
Awesome lines and composition!
posted February 2nd, 2013  
I think this is very cool, and very creative! You should do more... ;-p
