At Monument Square Park, Team 1 came across an interesting sign which pointed out the distance between New Brunswick and countries such as Japan. This selfie may symbolize the many cultures which students can be exposed to at college while incorporating that into selfies and their everyday life.
At Joyce Kilmer Park, Team One sat on a bench after hours spent taking selfies on and around George Street. While this is a public bench in a public park that countless of other people may have sat on at some point, by taking a picture of ourselves on it we’re solidifying this experience and making it more significant than it would’ve been, making it an event of its own rather than something we would have done and instantly forgotten about.
Team One stopped to take a picture with a statue of a deer near the Elk’s Lodge; if we weren’t looking for places to take selfies, such a magnificent local landmark could have been overlooked. In other words, we did not take a selfie because it was a cool statue, but rather payed attention and learned of a interesting local area purely on the basis of it providing an entertaining selfie shot.
