Coming back to London from the Christmas break has meant going back to reality, which Why Would You Buy a Selfie Stick?- Selfie timehas included hearing and reading about those topics that I used to read or hear about before the party season started, which may not have cropped up during my break.

I know it might sound a bit odd, but they are a bit of a distraction from the work and weather-related matters.

  1. When I first saw people using the Selfie Stick I didn’t realize what it was intended for. I thought it was a way to extend your reach with your camera so you could get shot above peoples heads say at a concert or some venue like that. Or simple for getting a shot of something high up. I would have to agree that I don’t see the need for it as it was intended. Then again, I’m not a big selfie person.
