Sorry, not a fan of selfies! Long outstretched arms disappearing out of frame degrade such photos quite a bit. Also your right hand looks totally out of proportion. But don't worry, I haven't got an account with any of those so won't be voting for someone else's entry either! I presume it wasn't taken on your Pentax? If you had, you could have got someone to take it for you (or used the self timer) from further back with a longer focal length lens and have ended up with a super family photo for the album with none of the typical selfie horrors which spoil so many photographs seen today.

I happily voted for a lovely impromptu shot taken by a long serving member of this community.

All the best!

I'm not a massive fan of selfies either but I like that shot. My other option would be a selfie stick but I'd rather have no picture than use a selfie stick. Even though, logically there's nothing wrong with them; they are a good way to get a photo of you somewhere without your arm in it. But they're like when you see someone taking a photo at a wedding with an iPad, it just looks wrong...

it was taken with the front facing (bad) camera on my phone.

Really its I just don't like mobile phones in general, or indeed seeing people driving using them or crossing the road looking at them without looking what's coming. It was ever since a lady nearly knocked me off my cycle at a roundabout - she just didn't look to see if anyone was coming. Luckily I spotted her and avoided death, but my it was close. Now mobile phones make me shudder.
Contactless payments with them... no thank you.
Pentax apps - they don't even work.
I'll just keep a phone in the boot for a real emergency!
What I abhor is the expectation to have one to pay for parking etc. I managed for many years without one!
So sorry, I couldn't bring myself to vote for a mobile phone picture even if I did have FB, Tw etc. I don't for the reason that's what people are doing when they are supposedly driving but in fact not looking where they are going!
I'd be perfectly happy for mobile phones to be uninvented.

Pa, please don't take it personally with regards to your photo, It's just the phones and 'selfies'! They get me hot under the collar.
