Somewhere around 01 January 2015 I realised that of the thousands of photos in my albums only a handful had me in them. I decided to take a selfie every day — not for publication, just for reference. And that’s what I’ve done. Sometimes I even take more than one, just for fun.
I’ve missed only a couple of days through forgetfulness, and a couple where an uncooperative camera app has failed to save without my realising.
Because the photos are only for me I don’t pay a lot of attention to quality or composition.
A lot has changed over the years: the iPhone front camera got better, because I recall taking early selfies with the rear camera and just hoping I was in picture. The camera software has got better. My technique has improved heaps. My hair’s even shorter now and there are extra wrinkles and sags. I also changed my glasses and now wear either sunglasses or clear glass.
Here are my 01 January photos from 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.
It’s all good fun.
