1. The top of Camelback Mountain
Taking a selfie from the top of Camelback Mountain may not be the easiest feat, but it's well worth the effort. Not only will your pinnacle panoramic give you a breathtaking backdrop, it will also make the people who follow you on social media feel utterly inferior.
2. The Love Sculpture at Scottsdale Civic Center Plaza
Love doesn't much freer than Robert Indiana's "LOVE" at Scottsdale Civic Center Plaza. The 12-foot aluminum statue has served as the setting for wedding announcements, graduation photos, and, of course, the occasional artsy self-portrait. Seriously, guys, if this affectionate fixture doesn't earn you at least one heart emoji, we don't know what will.
3. The Caged Dinosaur at Phoenix Art Museum
We already know why the caged bird sings, now we want to know why you haven't taken a photo with Sui Jianguo's caged dinosaur, formally titled Jurassic Age. Whether you're trying to document is social commentary on Chinese political shifts or you simply want a photo that makes for an interesting caption, this Phoenix Art Museum installation is selfie gold.
4. The Mirrored Bathrooms at Hanny's
When it comes to selfies, less is literally more inside the mirrored bathrooms at Hanny's. The former dressing rooms of an old department store turned bar and restaurant serve as the optimal optical illusion. With hues of pink and seemingly endless reflection, it lets even the left-brained look creative.
