I love the idea of my face popping up on your phone in your kitchen, work or gym. I enter your life with my face edited to smoothness and glow with my new app. I am beautiful, ready to be admired. I donít just edit the selfie - I edit my face. The end photo is me as I was meant to be, before nature got in the way. Cally suggested I take my selfies for a week with the Kodak Brownie 127. How I tried ... no editing, waiting a week for the photos, and then the result - this was not me! I had to get away from this me. With the 127 in my bag I boarded the steam train no 60163 Tornado. The passengers in my compartment examined my Brownie with respectful curiosity while talking of long gone summers, grandfathers and shorts. They pointed the camera at their faces, pressed and did not mind waiting a week ... People are so strange. Here are their faces.
