Whilst strolling along the cliffs at Godrevy I looked up towards the Point and noticed this person standing right on the edge of the area overlooking Mutton Cove (where the seals bask). After taking the shot I thought it was rather odd. The woman appears to have three legs. On zooming in I realise that there are in fact two people, one taking the selfie has his/her arm around the woman and most of his/her body is hidden.

    Ha ha…. People taking selfies ( myself included) often appear in strange, un-natural and funny poses/ expressions. But do we care? Not at all, as long as the pictures are good. πŸ˜›

    1. Heyjude says:

      Not something I do πŸ™‚

      1. Sadje says:

        And I try not too! Buts one gets carried away sometimes 😜

      2. Sue says:

        Nor me….

          Me neither! πŸ™‚

    A 3 legged person, Jude! I’d never have noticed. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Salt marshes for us this morning.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Enjoy! But don’t overdo things!

  3. BeckyB says:

    Reminds me of bizarre wedding shot set ups. May look brilliant through the photographer’s lens but from any other angle it’s like – what?

  4. bushboy says:

    I shall have to keep a look out for three legged selfies πŸ™‚

    Selfies on the cliff-edge!! Possibly candidates for a Darwin Award?

    1. Heyjude says:

      I am always astounded by how close to a cliff edge people get to take photos, of themselves or the scenery. In the National Parks of the USA it is even worse!

      1. Sue says:

        There are plenty of a) narcissistic and b) crazy people in this world

      2. Su Leslie says:

        Me too. A few years ago at s sculpture exhibition I was involved with, the curator (rather foolishly we thought) insisted on siting works very close to the cliff edge. We had to station volunteers full time to stop people falling over the edge while taking photos of one particular piece. That was his last year as curator, strangely.

  6. Tina Schell says:

    😊😊. Now THAT would have been a prize-winner Jude!! I don’t think I’ve ever actually heard of a 3-legged person!

    1. Heyjude says:

      I had to look twice at the photo when I viewed it on my computer Tina.

  7. Sue says:

    Haha…a fascinating look up, Jude!

    1. Heyjude says:

      She/they caught my eye high up on the cliff edge like that. I was quite a long way away so it wasn’t until I saw the image on my computer that I realised she had ‘three legs’ πŸ™‚

    I have never taken a selfie, but your shot shows the value of looking up sometimes! πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      Me neither Pete!

  9. Elizabeth says:

    People keep dying here taking those, most recently at the Grand Canyon.

    1. Heyjude says:

      That does not surprise me at all.

  10. The way some of these cliff edge selfies turn out, you may have ended up having to submit this photo as forensic evidence.
    I don’t understand the attraction of selfies even when my life isn’t at risk. I’ll never understand this.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Something to put on Facebook? “I’m here!”
      I don’t have FB or Instagram or Twitter so not much point in my taking selfies, in fact I hate having my photo taken, I always look dreadful and that makes me depressed thinking, “is that how people really see me?”

      1. Dina says:

        … in fact I hate having my photo taken, I always look dreadful and that makes me depressed thinking, β€œis that how people really see me?” …
        I could have said that, Jude. 100%.

        1. Heyjude says:

          I don’t like being photographed either Dina, for the same reasons!
