Steemfest Closing Dinner Selfies Session

in steemfest •  last year

I have always been a noob at taking selfies and been the laughingstock of my children for long.

Fortunately, the Steemfest Closing Dinner offered an unexpected opportunity to trains myself and put an end once and for all to this insolence.

I noticed that everyone was sitting in his chair, enjoying the delicious meal that was served to us, quite static. The perfect moment to take a selfies with all my new friends, without having to buy an overpriced stabilizer.

I also wanted to get a souvenir of ALL the nice people I met in Lisbon, and why not, share it with them.

Thanks to their kindness and complicity, I have done 163 selfies in a row. And now , I can proudly announce that I became "Selfie Certified Level 1".

Unfortunately, level 1 is not very high. In the video below, where I compiled the best of my pictures, you will sometimes notice poor quality in the footage. Out of those 163 selfies, only 87 survived my lack of experience.

Anyway, here is the result of Steemfest Closing Dinner Selfies Session.

I apologize to anyone I missed. I did my best to catch you all in my session.
I also apologize to anyone who did a selfie with me and is not on this video.

To the others, survivors of my training, if you recognize yourself and want a copy of the picture, feel free to contact me on

A very special thanks to:
@roelandp for making this amazing event each year so unforgettable.
@steembirds for making such entertaining songs. I couldn't find anything better to put on my video. You guys rock!

Thank you all, for the wonderful moments I spent with you!

Steem on!

Even though you don't recognize y influence on our photo breakthroughes I recognize you are NOW the King of Selfies!!!!!

Love you~*~


My dear friend. I was so glad to meet you in Lisbon.
I should write a post about this =)


Yes you should. You had so many evolutions and breakthroughs because of our interactions. It was meant to be for sure yet it was a revolution~*~

You do look like you are the life of the party and happy and fun person to be around. Looks like you brought joy to all those around you.

sir @arcange are you coming here in KSA? hehehe How I wish steemfest is posibble to happen here in KSA where I am working as an overseas filipino worker., its hard for us to witness and be part of the steemfest even in the philippines my home country since we are not capable of going out from KSA at anytime we like. not unless if we are going for our yearly vacation.. I am still fresh in steemit since I am using this platform for less than three month now, but I find steemit is a great help to anybody not only for earning money but gathering more friends around the globe and you are able to learn thousands of lessons shared from different people with different skills..

Soar High Be An Inspiration

This is so awesome, Thanks for letting me know I am a part of this awesome video. Could you give me just the picture of you and I in the selfie, maybe in the reply to this comment ^_^

Nice to see all of the beautiful faces here! Miss you! You are a beautiful man!

I disagree, you're definitely at level 2 or 3 with the selfies! Haha, I just love your brilliant idea and thanks for including me in your jedi-selfies-skills!

Many familiar faces! J'adore! Tellement beaucoup de selfies!!!! :D Et on n'a pas fait une ensemble aussi :/ Salut @argange!!! Voté!!! ;)

I'm happy I'm not the only one that feels funny when taking selfies. I just feel so ridiculous taking selfies. Thanks for sharing! I'm going to join the selfie certification tomorrow!

Me and @dana-varahi at 7:04. Nice way to connect with everyone even if we didn't have a chance to talk proper. The event was too big for everyone to talk to everyone. :)
