If there was something wrong, you would do something about it and then admire yourself again. /10 When the photos are taken, you may be tired or perhaps full after a good meal. Your hair may not look quite so good as it did. Often, when people get home and look in the mirror, they think: ‘I look terrible’. It’s just that, being home and alone, it doesn’t matter. Another reason is to do with angles. In the mirror, we see our nose, mouth and chin from above. This is more flattering than looking up from below. We also turn slightly and smile trying to get the best look possible. Unfortunately, our friends probably aren’t as careful. Photos are taken when we aren’t ready, often from the wrong position. You could watch carefully to see when someone is going to take a photo and pose for it but, although the photos might look better, your evening won’t be very relaxing. © Pearson 2020 PHOTOCOPIABLE Focus 3 SECOND EDITION (B1/B1+)
