Some people might see a vintage boxer oil painting but I see a vintage boxer taking a selfie. Even though this boxer would date back to the early 1900’s he is now definitely in the twenty first century. He caught a glimpse of himself walking by this wall mirror and just had to strike a pose.
Vintage Boxer Oil Painting
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 social media and new technology. Taking a selfie has become second nature to twenty somethings. And now even a vintage boxer can’t stop himself from taking a selfie or two. Stand in front of a wall mirror, hold up the cell 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 ourselves 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. I think this boxer got it right but sometimes it can take twenty or thirty snaps before the right one is chosen for mass distribution to family, friends and even complete strangers. This wall mirror may not be the best mirror for taking a selfie because it’s round but this boxer got it right anyway. But if you have a flat, unobstructed rectangle mirror, most commonly found in the bathroom, snap away. And don’t forget to strike a pose. Now put your dukes up.
