Alan Shapiro2,956,287I'm continually flabbergasted (I love saying flabbergasted. Say it with me. Flabbergasted. Now say it ten times while pretending you just got your tongue pierced. Cool.) at the sheer number of certain products available for photographers. Choosing a camera bags has got to be one of the more time consuming and frustrating experiences. And a bag is one of the products that is really important right? We're carrying expensive gear around and want to protect it. But then it has to be comfortable. And easy to use. After spending far too much time searching online and walking the aisles of B&H, Adorama. PhotoPlus Expo most recently in search of the perfect camera bag, I decided to ask a friend, +Peter Waisnor from +Tenba to spend a half hour with me to talk about choosing a bag and what to look for in a bag (while promising me to stay as neutral as possible despite making the best bags in the world.)Join us tonight from 8:30pm - 9:00pm EST (5:30pm - 6:00pm PST) for our Hangout On Air (which will be recorded so if you can't make it, no worries. You can watch it online later)Picking a camera bag...what to look for and how to decide what's right for you2013-10-28 01:30:0081

Gailen Mapes68,908Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera S - 11 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-10-11 11:21:21182217
Dubie Bacino107,050Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino (12th Edition)This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is engaging content that will enhance your Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------When it comes to #CircleSharing, my practice is to share only two of my circles every month:  - ENGAGERS: this is a way of saying thank you to those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content. If you want me to notice you, be active in one or all of my communities (see below).To connect with me -@Opajdara, the best place is my xeeme page: http://xeeme.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/ -----------------------------------------MY PAGES AND COMMUNITIES(Feel free to join if any of the topics interest you)FRIEND FILERIf you need more shared circles, check out the ones posted by +Friend Filer. If what you are looking for is to grow your audience, expand your reach on Google+ and connect with people on other social networks, I also recommend joining their community at http://bit.ly/1f6AUpH.MOON PHOTOGRAPHYTake a look at +Moonipulations, it's the place for all Moon lovers.

Gailen Mapes67,671Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera S - 11 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-09-11 10:29:32181224

Received a gift from +Vosges Haut-Chocolat that included several of their Mo's Cinnamon and Sugar Bacon Bars. This is what happens when you sit down to do a little post-processing inspired by one of the most inspired chocolatiers in the country: a cinnamon sugar and bacon chocolate Dahlia to start your day. Hoping your day starts as deliciously as mine did.

And because I love to share, the Lightroom preset is here for your enjoyment:

(Just remember, presets are just the starting point to bring your own vision to life and your results may vary based on the image.)

I have the best job in the world (two if I count my new second career as a photographer)
Every day, I have the privilege of working with some incredibly talented, dedicated and wonderful people. My job brings me an unbelievable amount of joy and these folks are a huge part of why. To quote my colleague Ab Sesay, "Teamwork makes the dreamwork."
Amen.

My roadtrip yesterday took me way upstate to a very zen place (literally and figuratively). There was a very beautiful river filled with so many beautiful stones and as I walked among them, I listened for the ones that called out to me. While gathering the most delightful stones, the babbling of the river turned into our conversations. Having seen many Inuksuks (Inuksuit), I decided to build my own in your honor overlooking a beautiful turn in the river for you to gaze on and (hopefully) smile. 

PS. You are way more beautiful in real life.

My echeveria entourage woke me this morning and collectively told me to get my ass outta bed, grab my camera and to get lost for a while. So I'm off. I sure could use the sleep but I could use getting lost far more. Seeya. Happy Sunday.

Was up way too late. Insomnia.
Went looking for a dahlia. Or zinnia. Or petunia. Or gardenia. Or begonia. (Consonance is very important to the sleep-deprived)
Then this rose came out of nowhere to keep me company.
Started thinking of the best places in the world to have insomnia: 
Transylvania won (obviously) over Tasmania and Patagonia.

Despite loving breakfast more than just about anything, I rarely eat it. I've been getting bugged of late to start my day correctly. A spinach and mushroom omelette with fresh tomatoes and a touch of grated manchego was today's fix. Of course, my breakfast wouldn't be the same without bacon. (Swoon!) So I made some. And then made some more for later. 

Thought I'd create a #adobelightroom5  preset in it's honor to share with you all. So here is my Bacon preset for Lightroom. Download it here: http://www.mediafire.com/view/p6adxewg2qvg6og/Bacon.lrtemplate

Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy bacon (swoon).
As always, remember that presets are merely a starting point for your own personal vision. Depending on your image, it will  rarely work as is without tweaking. So tweak away and think of me. And bacon.

Despite loving breakfast more than just about anything, I rarely eat it. I've been getting bugged of late to start my day correctly. A spinach and mushroom omelette with fresh tomatoes and a touch of grated manchego was today's fix. Of course, my breakfast wouldn't be the same without bacon. (Swoon!) So I made some. And then made some more for later. 

Thought I'd create a #adobelightroom5  preset in it's honor to share with you all. So here is my Bacon preset for Lightroom. Download it here: http://www.mediafire.com/view/p6adxewg2qvg6og/Bacon.lrtemplate

Planning to escape. 
Feeling cooped up.
Want to be scooped up and fly south to whoop it up.
Just too pooped...sigh.

Madonna and child

While dreaming of one day hanging in Le Louvre, the Met, the State Hermitage, the British Museum or the Uffizi, I can take solace in my one man exhibition in Ms. McKee's A.P. Bio Classroom. Huzzah.

A very old dog was watching a much younger dog chase his tail around and around and around, trying desperately to catch it but to no avail.
 The old dog said to the younger dog "What are you doing?"
The younger dog said "I have figured out that happiness resides in my tail and so I am chasing it in hopes of one day catching and holding on to this elusive happiness."
The older dog said "That is quite the coincidence as I too have discovered that happiness resides in my tail. The only difference is that rather than chase it, I just go about my day and find that it follows me everywhere I go."

Happy Monday, Google+ Peeps.
Stay inspired. And be inspiring

Whispering sweet nothings to Consuela, Princess of the King Vultures, after her breakfast:

Te quiero no por quien eres, sino por quien soy cuando estoy contigo.

Tienes los ojos más bonitos del mundo.

Cuando el amor no es locura, no es amor.

A menudo los labios más urgentes no tienen prisa dos besos después.

La medida del amor es amar sin medida.

Es tan corto el amor y es tan largo el olvido.

Can't focus. (literally) 
Took a walk before work and found this fellow to commiserate with who was clearly feeling the same way I was. We had a long talk waiting for the early morning fog to burn off. When I realized it was probably not gonna for a while I just packed it all in.
For the record: Art doesn't imitate life. Art is life.

Well...maybe a few pieces; but in the end (which is really just the middle ), lessons were learned and the story continues filled with action, adventure and the proverbial happy ending off playing hide and seek with the rainbows, unicorns and dragons.

Avast, me proud beauty! Wanna know why my Roger is so Jolly?

Aye...that was some treasure chest I fell asleep to (and a damn fine poop deck as well). Woke up wanting to drop anchor in yer lagoon and me yardarm needed to be battened down. Aaaargh...

Now here's a gussied-up sea urchin for ye.

Received a gift from +Vosges Haut-Chocolat that included several of their Mo's Cinnamon and Sugar Bacon Bars. This is what happens when you sit down to do a little post-processing inspired by one of the most inspired chocolatiers in the country: a cinnamon sugar and bacon chocolate Dahlia to start your day. Hoping your day starts as deliciously as mine did.

And because I love to share, the Lightroom preset is here for your enjoyment:

(Just remember, presets are just the starting point to bring your own vision to life and your results may vary based on the image.)

Had to share this little snapshot which made me smile.
Neither of us spoke the other's language. So I simply smiled. Huge. She smiled back. Huger. Then it was game on.
Her off-camera companion was easily in his mid 80's and in hindsight. I wish I'd thought to capture him as well.

Had the most amazing and take-my-breath-away beautiful dream last night.
Then I fell asleep. Woke up with a smile the size of a prairie.
