Old Time Selfies

In the old time selfies, beside a camera that is usually quite big, mirror play an important role. The camera is so big, but only could capture part of your face so you have to use a mirror. And they had to wait for days before they could see the photo printed by the photo printing services.
So you have to thank God because we could use smartphone and see the photo instantly in your camera.
