Metadata is often dismissed by politicians because it doesn’t include the content of a phone call or email, only basic details such as when the conversation took place and who it involved. But this picture demonstrates why it is important.

I was tagged by the lovely mo-dhialann to do this meme thingy involving 6 self-portraits that make you feel beautiful. Since I have issues with the issue of feeling beautiful, I picked out 6 of my favorite selfies, dated just up till my film camera broke. I have sets from different moments, different qualities, but the film-selfies are some of the best ones. Since I didn’t get to be anyone’s muse, I decided it wouldn’t be so bad to be my own. I won’t pick on anyone specific, but open it up to my followers. Pick out 6 of your own favorite self portraits, and let me know what’s special about them.
