    "Otheries" makes me think of photographing ghosts and aliens. (I hate it when those show up in my photographs!)

    Without being too cruel... "Otheries" could be pictures of unattractive people (who might be mistaken for aliens).

    Though those might be called "ugeries"

    You insensitive bastard!

    Seriously, I thought your comment was a bit much.

    But there is definitely a need to end the selfie thing, so I'll take anything at this point...

    For our family vacation on spring break, I put together a slide show of our family and friends.

    My self portraits were the biggest hit of the show, my kids had no idea anyone ever thought of it before.

    Here's one I made earlier...

    Might I suggest that as a superior breed to those frivolous hand-held, digital selfie-makers, we coin anything we make using film and a tripod a "stiffie"?
