In the Picture - Self Portrait Project - Theme 5 Big World, Tiny You

Unfortunately my problem is I usually don't think about my self-portrait shot for my Friday post until Thursday when I am working at home. At that point I don't have the luxury of hunting around to find a great location for a grand shoot. I'm generally cramped for time, at home on my lunch hour and have to throw something together quickly! For the May project we are supposed to try and get out of the house and include more of the great outdoors and our surrounding area. Fortunately for me yesterday the rain stopped in the afternoon just in time to take this picture. My mother had this flaming pink chair she set up in her garden to sit and relax. So I thought.... perfect spot! What I didn't count on was Brady my yellow lab decided it was also the perfect time to play fetch! No matter what I did he kept coming over with his ball. He would drop it at my feet, I would throw it and he would run off only to return moments later for us to do the entire thing all over again! So this is my shot! I couldn't help but laugh because after about 40 pictures all with him in it at my chair and feet I finally gave up!
