our july self-portrait linky party is open!

I think it's official--I'm taking a blogging hiatus for the summer, except for our {In The Picture} project posts of course. I know (or at least I hope) there are a few of you out there still playing along and I certainly don't want to disappoint you. Sorry the post is up a little late today, but here we go...

Our July theme was "reflection", which is always a fun one for me. Here are a few of my shots.



And here are some of yours from our flickr group... great job ladies!

My creation
1. Untitled, 2. self portrait #32, 3. neighborhood sign, 4. Backpack Selfie, 5. Good morning! Rain cooled 68 degrees this morning! #morningwalk #roundrock #fromwhereistand, 6. {in the picture} - reflection, 7. Side Plank, 8. When it rains wear flowers #reflection #nyc, 9. I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more. ~The Proclaimers, 10. From where I soak, 11. Floored, 12. In the Picture - Self Portrait Project - Reflections

I hope you will take a minute to link up with one of your self-portraits from July. The linky will stay open until Thursday, August 2.

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, time to get linking. I'll see you back here on Friday, August 3, for our next theme announcement and in the meantime, keep showing us your stuff in our flickr pool

Great shots! My favourite is the one with the red and white shoes and what looks like a puddle!

Zena said...

Wonderful reflections, love the first one. Great mosaic too. This month I followed the group theme and I´ve playing with my reflected image, it has been a very interesting exercise. Happy summer!

Cathy H. said...

These are great shots!! First, I love those red shoes and they're a perfect accent color for your puddle reflection!! Also love the one by the mailbox, timeless!!

I love your reflections, especially the puddle ones. Thanks for providing all the inspiration for us! Oh, and thanks again for featuring my photo.

Faith Hope and a whole lotta Love said...

Love the one of you in the puddle!!

I love the red shoes too and the clever way you got the shadow lined up. Thanks so much for hosting, Christy!

Lori said...

Christy - great theme this month and great shots. I too love the red shoes. I had fun catching my reflection in everyday places. Thanks for featuring my shot in the mosaic - it made my day.

I'm still playing along, but having trouble keeping up due to my huge stash of Cuba images I'm trying to process. Egad that's a huge job. My blog seems like it's on hiatus...but really I'm just treading water trying to stay afloat.
Love that last shot in the lower right. Really appeals to me. As you know, reflections are way cool and blessedly this theme was easy for me.
Hope you are summering well Christy. Extra pats to Willow.

I love, love the reflection shot you got! I think I like the puddle one the best! ; )

the one with you by the mail box is my favorite. You really bring out a different time and character in each photo.

Me too on loving the red shoes and the puddle reflection! I also like the bottom right image of your four-in-one grouping. Thanks for continuing {in the picture} over the summer. I really look forward to it each month. Enjoy your break!
