Road trips and weekend adventures are incomplete without a camera in hand. The click sound is what makes such long awaited and thoroughly planned vacations complete.
No matter which group I travel with... no matter how many people the group is composed of... or the average age of peers... or the location being explored... or the time of the day... or any other simple silly stupid scenario... the device that makes the click sound either:
1. sticks to my hand,
2. hangs around my wrist, or
3. dances around my waist.
As a result, very few clicks are targeted towards me.
This very disappointing factor encourages me to engage in some very non-unimaginable craziness.
When bored - and this happens often - and tired of the routine of fighting boredom - that consists of (a) watching movies, (b) playing games, (c) surfing the net, (d) chatting, (e) online social networking, (f) sleeping, (g) eating, (h) reading [?!] - the clicking device again mysteriously find its way towards me, my hand, my mind! And I - quite non-surprisingly - end up clicking my own photographs.
I assume, everyone would agree with me in saying:
self-clicked photographs look really bad
Yet, we all do it! Some do it more frequently than others. And I probably belong to the 'more frequent' category.
