Woman-Turns-Paintings-Into-Selfies Top

The Museum of Selfies is a project started upon a visit to the National Gallery of Denmark in Copenhagen. By simply holding a smartphone and positioning ones hand and arm correctly, these museum paintings looked as though they were taking the classic selfie in the mirror. While these are really, really funny, there is a little something to be learned here. But first, take a look at these museum selfies: ... Continue Reading
