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.
