Away we go

The DBEM and I are off to Wellington while painters titivate my house.   We are having a leisurely trip (mainly because of the age of my passenger!) and today drove through Taupo.  For some unfathomable reason I hit upon the idea of a selfie.   I'm no good at those and after a series of gaffes finally produced this acceptable one.
Just how does one hold a cell phone and depress the "take" button with the thumb?   I managed this time, accidentally, but am sure I could not repeat the success again!

  5. The photo looks great! I don't "self" myself, my phone doesn't even take photos.
    I was using my proper camera at a family BBQ and all the little cousins gathered round to see what it was. They had never seen an actual camera before!

  6. Sweet picture of you both. DBEM looks wonderful. I don't know how people do a selfie with one hand either. I have to hold the phone with one hand then click with the other. I've pretty much given up trying to do selfies. I have used the timer on my ipad when here at home wanting to do a selfie, and even struggle with that, lol.
    Safe travels.

    1. Thanks Sandy. I do better with a real camera and tripod and would use them if I were not so self conscious at the stares of those who exclusively use devices:)

    1. Thank you. We are home again safely and I have been busy with the Neepol and a duster as everything was coated in fine dust after the painters! Maybe some stitching tonight?
