{in the picture} june selfies

Half way there!
At the beginning of the year I decided to join with Christie at Urban Muser for a year long self portrait project.
I didn't know what to expect, but I didn't think I'd be taking photos of myself planking (this month's optional theme for {in the picture})
*Although I must say that both of my face down shots (below) were taken on the same day at the back & front of my house.
And here is just a part of me in these shots below, 

waiting for a train...

and my reflection in a dusty mirror.
So far I've managed 5 photos each month plus a few extras here & there.
It's been fun! Thanks Christie- you've been very inspiring & encouraging.
6 months to go :)

  1. Oh you're so good at this! I love them all Leanne, the planking ones are too funny, your dog running through the shots is hilarious, I like that you made a collage out of that.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Fabulous shots, love the planking ones! If you clone the chair out you'll have a levitation shot too! Very cool. Great set. Happy weekend. :)

  3. I really like your first image and the one of your feet at the train station. Great use of line and texture there. 6 months in, 6 to go.

  5. You have done such a great job with this project - I have really enjoyed following along. I love that first one - the toning, your expression, the whole easy feel of the image. Simply beautiful.

  7. You make me laugh...... love the planking shots. Would love to have been a fly on the wall or a neighbour peeking over the fence. First one at your front door just beautiful.

  9. The first one is my favorite too -- love the colors, composition, and your relaxed pose. I like the idea of planking on a chair (great balance there) rather than putting your face on the ground. Love how your dog is streaking through the photo!

  12. Leanne, I love that first one, too. That's a lovely, natural-looking self-portrait. I also admire the perfect form of your chair plank. You have great muscle tone! :-)
