Oops!

By Posted on 8 Comments 1 min read

This weeks Daily Post Photo Challenge is titled Oops! That moment when you get it all wrong with your photography, you know the one, when you make a complete pigs ear of it! Well, here’s mine and it was taken when I had my first smart phone. It was an Android and one of the reasons I purchased it was because apart from making phone calls and texting and blogging and twittering and facebooking and er….. oh yes, it was supposed to come complete with a fairly decent camera!

Initially, I thought it was just a case of point and shoot, and looking back with hindsight, I suppose it is. However, what I didn’t realise was that in among the software is the ability to take photos in reverse, so if you wanted to take a selfie, (heavens forbid), you just pressed a virtual button and your face would appear on the screen instead of the view in front of you. What I didn’t know was this is what was happening at the time. I thought I had got a wonderful view of the Cambrian mountains in mid Wales, when what I actually caught was half my face and a blurry shot of the vista!

I didn’t realise until I got home on the night and scrolled through my days ‘selfies’! I deleted most of them, feeling pretty stupid, but for some reason I still have one in my archive. You live and learn as they say.

 

I'd love to hear from you

      Haha, you’re right Janet. It’s always worth keeping them safe, or at least some of them!

    Take heart dear Trev because you’ve actually got yourself an excellent avatar to use when one is needed so your oops is actually a really good thing. Very interesting shot!
