When a Selfie Ruins Everything
I will share a story that embarrasses me a bit. It was clearly not a Smart Mama moment.
It was a total selfie FAIL!
I was enjoying a fantastic time at lunch with a dear friend and fellow blogger, Leticia of TechSavvyMama.com. As every moment these days includes, we took a selfie.
Well a few minutes later as we were leaving our lunch at La Cote at the Fontainebleau, we spotted loads of celebrities there for the Rio 2 premier.
Within seconds actors like George Lopez, Jamie Eisenberg, Andy Garcia, Anne Hathaway, Jamie Foxx and more were within a foot of us as we walked by each other. I grabbed my phone and launched the camera. I took dozen of photos of these famous stars. I was so excited. Until I realized the major FAIL I had committed.
My camera was still on selfie mode!
Yes, my fantastic photos of the stars – within an arm’s reach – turned out to be pictures of my shoulder and hair. Just look:
Can you believe it?
I did get one decent photo of Anne Hathaway. (This photo was actually taken about an hour before the selfie disaster 😉 )
Lesson learned for all you Smart Mamas, take your phone OFF OF SELFIE MODE when trying to be part of the paparazzi!
What’s your selfie fail story?
