Trying to Shake It In April - In the Picture

I flew back to the chilly cornfields of Illinois Friday morning into a whirlwind of activities. It's now Sunday evening, I still haven't finished my laundry but I am taking time out now to post the self portraits I took in April. Christy, aka Urban Muser challenges us with an optional theme each month - this month was "shake it out", inspired by the eponymous song by Florence and the Machine. With lyrics encouraging you to shake off the negative thoughts of the past, it is now one of my favorite songs.

I managed to incorporate movement into a couple of my April selfies:

At a wedding (yup, taken in the bathroom):

Working up a sweat after 30 minutes on the eliptical:

We moved the horse to a new stable and there are lots of interesting things to photograph, including my long legs (yeah, right!):
Long Shadows of Sunset #stable #barn #shadow

My shake it out photo - shaking it out before playing my violin. I didn't realize how much I fling my hair around!

The corner of my mind:

A windy day, watching my daughter's soccer game:

Soaking up the sun on the beach in Florida:

That's it for April - If you are interested in jumping in and starting your own self portraits, check out the {in the picture} details. I've had a blast these last four months.

All photos taken with my iPhone 4s.

Fabulous shots Shirley! My favorite is the one with the blue sky in the background at the soccer game. I guess I need to do some catching up again. I somehow fell off the wagon this month. ;)
