In a world of snapping selfies this round vintage porthole mirror works just fine. It may not be that large but I seemed to squeeze just enough inside this porthole to take the perfect selfie. But putting me aside, this porthole is true vintage. It was salvaged from decommissioned battleships and we repurposed it into a wall hanging mirror.
Round Vintage Porthole Mirror
In an age where texting has replaced talking on the cell phone or even talking in person who would have guessed that a wall mirror would become so vital to new technology and social media. Taking a selfie, a picture of yourself, has become second nature to twenty somethings. And for that matter, just about any age person has taken a selfie or two. Stand in front of a wall mirror, hold up the phone, snap a photo and post it on Instagram, Facebook or text it to a friend. Not sure how the obsession with taking an unlimited number of photos of yourself evolved but it looks like it’s here to stay. And it’s not as easy as it appears. Once in front of the mirror it takes focus and concentration to strike just the right pose, shoot the right angle and of course the right expression for which we are trying to convey to others. Sometimes there can be twenty, thirty or even fifty selfies taken in front of a wall mirror before the right one is selected for mass distribution to family, friends and even complete strangers. This wall mirror may not be the best for taking selfies but if you have a flat, unobstructed mirror, most commonly found in a bathroom, snap away. Now let me try that pose just one more time. Snap.
