I Clicked it Up a Notch Picture Share-October

I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t have more to choose from but this is one of my favorites from the month. I started to do the 30 day challenge and I clearly failed :O) However, I did snap this on the “what I was wearing” day. It is the first time I was able to take a self portrait and nail the focus in less than 3 images.

You may have noticed in the title but this month is not a photography contest but a picture share. I’m about to go on a big trip and I won’t have time to pick my top 5 so I thought we could just share our favorite one anyway. I still encourage you to leave comments on the other images. Unfortunately, with all that it takes to get a family of 4 ready for a trip and over a 20 hour plane ride, I won’t be able to comment on your pictures. I look forward to seeing them though!

To submit a photo:

  • Only one photo in the entry post.
  • Our button (not just a link) must be in the post.
  • The photo needs to have been taken this month.
  • Summit your permalink, not your main blog address.

Click It Up A Notch

That’s it! It’s that simple! So go through all your photos you have taken in October and submit your favorite/best one. Don’t forget to leave comments on the other entries because that is half the fun!! Also, submit your photo early since those seem to be the ones who receive the most comments!

    Courtney, I LOVE this self portrait! You look so relaxed and natural, and the focus is perfect. I have such a hard time with self portraits–this came out great!

    I wish I knew how to focus on myself that quickly! It’s something I’m still working on.
    Have a safe trip!

    Wow, I love this. And since you didn’t ask for a critique, I can leave it at that!
