Top places for selfies in Orlando.
Orlando is home to many tourist attractions, most of which would make fantastic spots to take a selfie. The origin of the selfie dates back to 1839 when an American photographer, Robert Cornelius took a self-portrait of himself. A ‘selfie’ is a word that is used to describe a self-portrait, a photograph you take of yourself usually taken using a mirror or a camera held at arm’s length. The word selfie was actually chosen as the word of the year in 2013 by the Oxford English Dictionary and is described as; “a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.” And thus the selfie was born.
