{in the picture} my favorite place

Good Friday morning all! I've got to keep it short today but I wanted to let you know our (optional) self-portrait theme for October and announce the winner of our giveaway.

First off, the theme...we're keeping it simple this month. Show off one of "your favorite places". Is it a cozy corner of your home, a local park, the beach? Wherever it is, I'd like to see you there...take a selfie in "your favorite place" and get ready to come back and share at the end of this month.

I took this selfie last year in Ft. Tryon Park near my apartment in NYC. It is truly one of my favorite places when I need to breathe some fresh air and clear my head. In fact, I love it so much I think I'm going to try to take a new selfie in that same spot this month. I've been meaning to get back there and haven't found the time so this might give me just the push I need!

And now for the winner of our giveaway of the hardcover journal...the winner (chosen by random.org) is #20, Linda of Diva Weigh! Congrats Linda and thanks to everyone who linked up. Our next {In the Picture} linky party will be on Friday, October 26. Hope to see you then :)

Christy, I can see why that would be a favorite place. I think it would be one of mine, too. This theme gives me much to think about!

Hey Christy. What a great setting to do a selfie. I love how inserting yourself into the image, give the viewer a better sense of the scope of the arches. I will be curious to see what you do this time-your selfies have changed so much this year. Can't wait. Favorite place. Hmmmm.
Hope all is well.

I knew this looked familiar, U.M! And my memory is BAD, so that's just more proof of how much your work stands out! A beautiful shot of a beautiful spot... I can see why it's one of your favorites!

Hi Christy,

Hope your week is going well!
