How I Made My First Selfie

I was photographing in the Yosemite National Park last month. Was crossing on a small bridge over a spring river. Stopped in the middle of the bridge and extended my arm out in front of me, manually focusing on my open hand. Took my Canon DSLR with a 16-35mm zoom lens set at 16mm, then pointed at myself. I raised it above my head and fired off a couple of photos, and voila, my first selfie.
Amazing what POV can do.
