The shared instruction was,

“Make sure it’ll make a FANTASTIC PROFILE PIC!”

Imagine the pressure.

The shot would be a no-brainer. The sunset was so dramatic, it would generate substantial attention to those who are suckers for #sunset. The beach — oh that beach — is a popular vacation spot that #Boracay #summer #islandlife #beachlife are guaranteed click-baits. The pose is casual enough, hopefully far from pathetic. Besides, who doesn’t love a spectacular #silhouette?

This photo, indeed, will make a fantastic profile pic.

What am I trying to say in this too thought-out, constantly curated image of me?
