Have you noticed?
One of the hot Christmas items this past year was a Selfie stick.
I tried to make a Selfie once to show off my new haircut and it took me at least a half-dozen shots to get one that wouldn't be featured in one of those spoofs called Selfie-Gone-Wrong.
My daughter has told me that at one time she tried to make a photo using her cell phone only to learn that it was full.
Upon checking, she saw that it was indeed full - mostly of Selfies made by her oldest daughter who is now eight-years old.
One of Lillie's many Selfies
When she scolded Lillie about taking so many photos using Mama's phone, she suggested that this little photographer use her own tablet or iPod to make Selfies.

That was when she learned that Lillie had already filled up her tablet and iPod by making Selfies and video tutorials about styling her My Little Pony's hair or something like that.

I was watching television during my snow days and even took in some of the commercials because I wasn't watching a DVR version that I could forward through the commercials. One commercial was featuring that talk-show host, Ellen, had broken the Internet by using Twitter with her selfie at the Oscars last year.
That started me thinking...
What is it about our culture that has developed such a climate that we constantly take photos of ourselves?
Are we so self-centric that we cannot find another subject interesting enough to focus our eyes upon?
Obviously, I am not the only one who has considered this phenomenon.
Others are probably more intrigued by this concept than even I am.
It seems that folks of every age and every walk of life are into Selfies these days.
Are we so wrapped up in ourselves and what we are doing that we are ignoring the world around us?
So, what is it about using our mobile devices to make photos of ourselves that appeals to people so much?
I cannot for the life of me figure it out.
