…or something like that! (#DadIsWellHung)

Believe it or not, I’m not one for taking a good Selfie. When it comes to taking a Selfie with a good shot of the background as well, well, it’s anyone’s guess as to what may turn out.

Also, throw in a few Christmas decorations as well, and the difficulty factor is raised exponentially. It shouldn’t be, but it is.

Take this Christmas decoration that Andra’s dad would like hanging all across the world. I thought it would be nice to have it in the background, behind me.

The first shot turned out thusly:

Peekaboo 1

Over to one side and half hidden by my Severe Flick.

The second shot was making a move in the right direction:

Peekaboo2

More central, but still hidden.

Shot number three:

Peekaboo3

Slightly better still, but not quite right yet. The Severe Flick isn’t as severe in this photo, which is always a good thing.

Shot four:

There! All in shot and autographs on show too!

Only, I had to go one better, didn’t I? I needed to include other Christmas decorations:

You guessed it. I couldn’t get the angle right. I tried a different setting:

Not the best. One more attempt:

But no. Shot four has to be the winner. Although when some of the decs fell down this shot made for an interesting alternative:

It's a wrap

Congratulations Andra on making the New York Times Best Sellers list, and thank you to you and Roy for the little surprise I received in the post today.

My normal Christmas Cards will resume shortly.

    1. Thanks, VK. And you’re no dinosaur! I love the camera on my mobile phones nowadays though… I can still remember my first mobile that actually lit up when used – and that was cutting edge back in the day!

      Yes… I must work on the angles of these Selfies, methinks. But yes, the hair wasn’t as frightful as usual…
