June 21st is observed as the national selfie day; this day is the perfect time to find out the perfect angle, new filter, and fresh up the social media. Wear the perfect outfit that you have, adjust your hair, find your lights, and strike a post. We should thank the smartphone and social media for this awesome day. Nowadays, the selfie has become a part of our life; it is the perfect way to capture our beauty. In the olden days, to take photos, only the camera was there to take a photo.

Just open the camera, find the perfect place, and take a snap.
