They were probably a little younger than I at the time or now and damn like so much these days, makes me feel older ;-) I hope they are still alive, healthy and together.

My father passed away earlier this year, I found this picture while trying to digitalise old photo albums. So, if you are aprox. the same age, kind reminder to enjoy life while it lasts!

Factory I worked in for 43 years closed almost 2 years ago. Health is so so and have tried to quit all the crap that can tear me down. I am more grateful than ever for the simple things I have in life. Remember your dad with love:-) My dad was a bully and sick -uck to me much of his life but I have forgiven him and smile when I remember his good or the cringe-worthy music he loved ;-) Thanks for the reply.

Is your name Calvin and do you have a stuffed tiger? Hair color is just different but I’m getting some strong vibes from the photo.

Your mom looks like the kid who distracts the T2000 while John Conner escapes.

and unless your Mum or Dad developed their own photographs this selfie would take a week to materialise. Great days. Sorry to hear your Dad has passed. Preserve your memories; they’re all that’s left you.

Back when people called selfies pictures. When the word self only meant yourself and not taking a picture of yourself and others


Urunghai OP t1_ixznrh1 wrote

What would you have titled this picture?


Lokivstheworld t1_ixzpf4r wrote

My parents in 1988. I guess i just don't like the use of the word selfie. Or the word selfie in general. It was understandable when it defined one taking a picture of themself. It started making less sense when people defined it as any picture you take of yourself and anyone or anything else around you. Isn't that just taking a picture? I apologize if I've offended you, i don't mean to come across as a dick. It's just something I've pondered.


Urunghai OP t1_ixzxvt1 wrote

No offence taken at all - I always thought the definition of a selfie was "the person who takes the picture is in the picture itself". But then what about the self-timer? gif


SV650rider t1_ixznk4w wrote

I’d say this counts as a selfie because he’s taking it himself.


Lokivstheworld t1_ixzotxv wrote

That's still just taking a picture though. Maybe i just don't get it
