I'm in the age group that's a little too old to take photos of ourselves by holding our phones out in front of us. We feel the photos are pointless. "Here's us in Wyoming. Here's us in New York. Here's us in Paris." And each of the photos is of two people's faces pressed together; each of them could have been taken in the same living room. I take a lot of photos since it's such an accessible technology, but I've found that I have almost none of myself. My wife has a lot of photos of herself thanks to me. It's a good thing we're married otherwise my photo album would look like it belonged to an insane stalker. I need to make friends with more causal photographers.
