The Oxford Dictionary announced their choice of the 2013 Word of the Year as “Selfie”. And if you don’t know what that is, you must not be on Facebook! I have to admit that taking a picture of myself – smiling for myself – was rather weird the first few times. But like those before me, I got the hang of it.
I think everyone in the Midwest is being hit with some sort of cold spell this weekend and most of us aren’t really going anywhere unless we have to. Oh, there might be a few riders braving the cold, but I’m not one of them. So I challenged my fellow Horsetalers to go visit their horse (or a horse) and in honor of the word of the year, take themselves a “selfie”. I did mention that their pictures would be judged on quality and originality but I’m not sure how many caught that. The entries started coming in. Single shots, multiple shots, retakes. What a fun few days!
I took the liberty of choosing one picture per person that I felt met the criteria and then I asked my Facebook friend, Photo By Jonni, to judge the finals.
All riders are from Nebraska unless noted. Here are the entries:
Winner will be announced soon! If you are visiting this site, what selfie is your favorite and why? Your comments are welcome.
