Steampunk selfies

30 Sep

A friend of mine, Katie Curtis, gave me a suggestion a few weeks ago. She said that I should create some cutouts of some of my airship photos and put them on sticks. People could then hold them up against the sky and take a selfie with them in different or special places…even when traveling, then post them to social media.

What a great idea…thanks Katie!

So I did that very thing and here they are…

If you’d like a Steampunk selfie, drop me a comment below or email me at Include your name and address so I can sent you one. Then take a selfie with the airship held against the sky and post to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and add the hashtags #steampunkselfie and #drsteampunk

Let’s have some fun with this and thanks for your support!
