Send us your Seattle ‘selfie’ of the year

No, it's not Seattle. But this is a pretty great selfie. Japanese stronaut Aki Hoshide, Expedition 32 flight engineer, takes a photo of his own visor. During a six-hour, 28-minute spacewalk, Hoshide and NASA astronaut Sunita Williams (visible in the reflections of Hoshide's helmet visor), flight engineer, installed a camera on the International Space Station's robotic arm, Canadarm2.

The Oxford Dictionary has declared “selfie” the word of the year.

Did you climb Mount Rainier? Scuba dive in Puget Sound for the first time?  Land in a sea plane on Lake Union?

Send us your Seattle “selfie” of the year (fully clothed, please and thank you).
