Selling things online is a great way to make a quick buck, but it comes with its own particular set of challenges.
You might end up having to pay more than you expected for shipping.
You might end up with some weirdo coming to your house and trying to talk you into selling your goods for way cheaper than you planned on.
Or, you might be trying to sell a mirror and be faced with the impossibility of taking a good picture of it.
via: ImgurWell, I hope you're ready for your new favorite thing on the Internet. I present to you: People Trying to Take Pictures of Mirrors Without Appearing in Said Picture. Get ready for a wild ride.
via: ImgurI love this one. It's sneaky, but still completely ridiculous. You can tell how proud they are of themselves for thinking to poke their hand up through the stair rails.
via: ImgurSpoooooky! Do you think the ghost costs extra when you buy this mirror?
via: ImgurThis one is also brilliant. This person knows exactly what's going on and isn't afraid of it at all. They're embracing the challenge of taking a mirror picture. Well done!
via: Instagram"How am I ever going to get a picture of this mirror that shows how big it is? I know! I'll put something next to it for scale. Like a person! They're going to have to take their shoes off, though. Obviously."
via: ImgurIf you're mostly interested in the mirror frame, I've got great news for you. If you're curious about the actual mirror itself? Well... I can't really help you there.
via: TwitterBrilliant. Turn sideways, so as to take up less of the room in the mirror. Why didn't I think of that?
via: TwitterWhen taking your own picture of a mirror you're trying to sell, remember that you should feel free to get creative with props. Look around you for something subtle that will still completely hide your face.
via: ImgurI would totally buy this gigantic mirrored wall. Is the door also for sale? I can tell by this picture that it is also in pretty great shape.
via: InstagramOK, now this one is actually a work of art. How do I install a mirror in my home so it always looks exactly like this?
via: TwitterYou can tell so much about a person by the mirror pictures they take. This person has a relatively fancy camera, a cozy red sweater, and an apparent fondness for ducks.
via: ImgurI have so many questions about this one. You knew the mirror was reflective, but you just left the vacuum cleaner there anyway. And even though you stretched your hand out, you still managed to get your head in the picture! Also...are you wearing a shirt?
via: TwitterOh look. Another ghost. Beware for people trying to sell you their haunted mirrors online!
via: InstagramHere's yet another mirror ghost! I can't even pretend I'm mad about this. This is just completely delightful.
via: InstagramOnce again, so many questions. Why use a tripod if you're going to just press the button to take the picture? This next person actually managed to use the tripod correctly...
via: ImgurI would pay real money to watch the person set up their tripod for this picture, hit the button, and then run out of frame. (Or maybe there's actually a vampire standing there and we just can't see it!)
via: TwitterOne sock on, one sock off. This adds a layer of intrigue and mystique. I like the cut of this person's jib.
via: TwitterStep one: Set camera on chair so you don't have to appear in the picture. Step two: Stand there anyway.
via: ImgurWho knew one could derive this much pleasure just from surfing through craigslist to find pictures like this one? I didn't, but I'm certainly going to keep that in mind from now on. Know someone who would get a kick out of these fabulous mirror pics? Share this article with them!
