{in the picture} june linky party is open!

Hi everyone! Sorry I was so late to the party this month, but the June {In the Picture} linky party is now open (even though it's July)! I had some fun on the lifeguard chair for my shot...


And it looks like those of you who got out there for a facedown selfie had some fun with it too...

{in the picture} facedown!
1. self portrait #28, 2. pond planking, 3. summit plank, 4. Planking 2, 5. facing the past & filling the gap, 6. plank, 7. planking in zacatecas, 8. Planking on a post, 9. FDT: rush hour on the Madison Street Bridge

I hope you will take a minute to link up--you can join in with any self-portrait (even if it's not of the "facedown" variety). The linky will be open until Friday, July 6.

As a reminder...here are our usual rules:
  • If you are new here, you can get caught up on this page. It's not too late to join!
  • There will be a link up here on the last Friday of every month, and the linky tool will remain open to your submissions until the following Thursday.
  • Please link back to the permalink for your {In The Picture} blog post or flickr image, not just the general url for your blog or flickr stream.
  • Linked entries must be to a blog post or flickr image of your recent self-portraits, not just any old photo. Your photo does not have to relate to the optional monthly theme, but it does need to be a self-portrait. Links will be moderated and removed if they do not comply with this rule, sorry :)
  • Please do link back here to my blog either through a text link, or with my button found below to help encourage others to participate and add to our group.
  • And most importantly, be the encouragement you hope to receive and help build our self-portrait community! Please try to visit a few of the links of your fellow {In The Picture} participants and leave a nice comment--it only takes a few minutes and you may be inspired by what you see :)
OK, that's it, I'll let you take it from here. I hope our theme didn't scare anyone off, I just thought it would be kooky and fun to give it a try! I'll see you back here on Friday, July 6, for our next theme announcement and in the meantime, keep showing us your stuff in our flickr pool

I totally blew it this month with the theme. It is fun seeing what everyone else did, though. The only self portrait I took was with my camera that I thought I'd lost, but then found.

What a fun collection of planks! I love your lifeguard chair plank -- the colors are great! I did my own version of the plank.

Christy, your lifeguard station photo is perfect for the season as well as the theme. Well done! :-)

Fun pics - I'm amazed you all were so brave, I'm not sure I'd be able to do this in public! :-)

Wow, I'm always impressed by these self portraits and this month really pushed me out of my comfort zone. I love your lifeguard pose and all the featured face-down planks.

Your photo is super fantastic!!
Awesome colors, and going by the rules....'No planking on the Dunes!"
I adore you and this months prompt!!
Thanks for the fun!

Wonderful photos, yours is fantastic. I am amazed. I was not brave enough to make it in public, I made a few attempts but i didn´t find the right place, I haven´t got much time, either. However, I did it at home, and finally I found a photo that I liked and was quite meaningful... so not too bad, this month ;)
