A bit nosey
Posted 9:02 AM on Wed-20-Jun-2012
I don't consider myself vain. I'm not a supermodel in looks, but I think I'm ok looking. I don't mind having my photo taken, but I like to know it's being taken so I can show my 'good side'. You see, I've been blessed with the McSchnoz. Yes, I have inherited a rather large nose, and those of us who sport big honkers, we can be rather paranoid of our side profile view - especially in photos.

It takes a photo to be reminded of what we look like from the side. It's not like you can bend your eyes around that way particularly well to check your profile out, and this weekend while I was away with a gorgeous group of girls (why on earth I always seem to stumble upon good looking friends is beyond me), many photos were taken. Some on fancy phones and posted straight to social networking sites. Some were of my dreaded 'bad side'.

It's interesting to see even celebrities finding their 'good side' in photos (mostly the women, I don't think guys really care). If you look closely at some of the famous faces, you'll notice in the red carpet snapshots, nine times out of ten, the woman will be striking the same pose. Angelina Jolie quite fancies her head tilted slightly to one side, Halle Berry likes to stick her shoulders back with hands on hips, Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas almost always tilts her head slightly down.

So it's not vain at all I don't think to hope for the best in a photo. Be we stay home mums, company executives, or Hollywood A listers, we are who we are, and it's only human to want to be captured in history looking our best.

Go JO!

Oh I hate my photo taken and so does my partner but we bit the bullet a few months ago and got family photos done, I would love to be able to not run when a camera comes out.

My father in law is really good at getting out the video camera. I hate it as all I can hear is my voice (and I hate it.)

And this GoMummyJo is exactly why I NEVER wear a bikini... because I just know I'm going to get pix of my stretch marked *ss taken and posted for everyone to see... it of course has nothing to do with the fact that I don't look like a supermodel at all!!!lol :-P
