The demise of photographs

When I retire I have always wanted to take a post in a high traffic tourist area and take photographs of those vacationing.

I often practice this skill (and have now trained Tarzan) when I see a group taking pictures of each other not inclusive of everyone there, or if they are attempting a selfie with a scenic background. 

In the past couple months I have been turned down when asked if I could take their picture while said person was in process of selfie. Saddened by the need of my retirement gig waning I have still been on the lookout where my talent is needed.

Today while in process of a hot chick selfie the offer came asking if we wanted assistance.  My first reaction was no (am I really transitioning to the outside world? Or do I just know how it do a better angle?)

I conceded and we had the photograph taken.
Sigh. It's always better.  Please universe, let's not let the selfie take over good photography

I'm conflicted....not 100% sure your pic isn't better (minus the partial face cutting off ;). Best of luck in retirement!

Love both photos. Some advice if another person taking picture should be to fix clothing, lol. My shirt is a mess
