Today is the last day to enter the April Self Portrait Challenge! In celebration of “April Showers,” but very flexible conceptually, our “Wet” theme allows you to interpret however you like. Get creative – we’re looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!
There are so many possibilities for this theme – will you be underwater, in the rain, or soaking in the tub? Maybe riding some ocean waves or drowning in a lake? The possibilities are endless!
For some inpirations, here’s my Self Portraiture a la H2O Gallery on Flickr – a collection of great “wet” self portraits by a variety of photographers: http://goo.gl/NYwGKM

Here’s the image I created for the Challenge:
And another I shot this month falling under the same theme:
A poem for my living room carpet:
They said you were dirty
but what did they know
I’ve cared for you plenty
and boy does it show
You’re not even black yet
just a dingy grey
I swore that I’d steam you
one of these days
Then a cranky toddler
had fits he did throw
got time out, and got back
at Mom with Pee Shows.
Oh carpet, it soaked in
and I waited too long
I steamed you last night
now you smell like burnt schlong (??? sorry, it rhymed)
Another Mom Lesson
with answers you seek:
don’t let it soak in! when
you do clean, it REEKS.
