Lotus Carroll1,771,466This is the Event for our January Self Portrait Challenge: New Beginnings! What is meant by this? It's up to you to interpret. I know that many of us think about what we want the next year to be like (even if you don't make resolutions) and this seems like a great way to express what's been on our minds in that sense. You can interpret this way, or any other way that makes sense to you. We're looking forward to what your creative minds will come up with!Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait with a "New Beginnings" theme. Your photo must have been captured any time during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST January 31st, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. You have about two weeks left to complete this task if you don't already have a qualifying photo that you took this month - you can do it! Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified.InspirationModerators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we'll be putting our photos into the Event in the hopes that you'll be inspired. If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/M7XTQ and ask away! We have categories for questions and discussion and are happy to help with anything. Prizes$150 Gift Certificate for +BorrowLenses.com http://www.borrowlenses.com1 Year Awesome Account at +500px http://goo.gl/CCrBlS +Think Tank Photo Mirrorless Mover 10 Bag http://goo.gl/Z4h0INPlease circle these sponsors - they make these prizes possible, so having them circled is a requirement to be a winner.There will be 3 winners. 1st place winner selects choice of 3 prizes. 2nd place selects choice of 2 remaining prizes. 3rd place receives the remaining prize.

Lotus Carroll1,771,466This is the Event for our September 2013 Self Portrait Challenge: A Great Cell Phone Photo. Just because you use a cell phone doesn't mean your self portrait has to be of the "facebook style" mobile or reflection variety. That little guy has a camera inside it, so treat it like one!Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait using only a cell phone to capture and process (no computer software post processing!). Your photo must have been captured this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST September 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified.Tutorial & TipsNeed some tips and inspiration for this challenge? Have no fear! That's why we're here. :) The amazing +Mark Rodriguez made a tutorial about shooting cell phone photos to get you inspired - see it here: http://goo.gl/z3IZ23 He also posted a video of his process - see it here: http://goo.gl/vzcRHLRemember these Do's and Don'ts to get the best photo:*DO take the time to set up your shot thoughtfully.*DO invest time and effort and try more than once to get it right.*DO make sure your lens is clean.*DO take your photo in adequate light so it's not grainy, blurry, or dark.*DO put the cell phone down and use a timer - stop taking all your photos by holding the phone and pointing at yourself or a mirror.*DO try different angles for the best composition.*DO read the posts in our Tutorials Category and try the concepts and ideas you learn from them: http://goo.gl/uSUULE *DO try different apps and see what works best for you.*DO be aware of your background! It makes a huge difference! Is there junk in the room behind you? If yes, it's not a good place to shoot. ETC.*DO NOT just slap a filter or cheesy effect on and call it a day - take the time to try different edits and pay attention to the elements of your photo. *DO NOT point your phone at a mirror and take a reflection photo where we can see your phone.*DO NOT have your arms in the photo as you're holding the phone out in front of or above you.*DO NOT duckface.*DO NOT showcase your cleavage as the main subject.Here's a list of Photo Apps you can try out:SnapseedVSCOcamRetouch (cloning tool!)Camera+Camera!PhotoStudioPixlr ExpressAviaryInsPhotoPrizes1 Year of +September Self Portrait Challenge: A Great Cell Phone Photo2013-09-01 07:00:00180

Gailen Mapes68,324Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera S-U - 30 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 +2014-09-30 10:18:33201001

Gailen Mapes66,394Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  R-S - 29 of 30Note: 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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 +2014-07-29 10:16:1119910511

For those that are not aware it seems I may have broken part of my back. After a doozy of a fall from a gantry in work yesterday o have a gash on the back of my head that looks like a spare mouth.

The CT scan has shown up an unstable fracture in my T spine. I have spent the night doped up on morphine not moving from the one position flat on my back. They have also been waking me every hour or so to check for concussion.

I have to have an MRI scan today and I have to see the orthopaedic surgeon. Hopefully it will just be a case of getting a brace and being sent home.

I have no idea just how long this is going to take me out of the game though :(

That Look

Every now and then you will come across an animal that can give you a look that will stop you dead in your tracks, its as if you have done something wrong. This great grey owl did just that today, I felt as if I had been chastised by a look alone.

The Drop

Snow Leopard taking a leap to the ground with its food, just as a domestic cat they can flip and land on all fours from a great height. Its spectacular to see.

Sentinel

Forever watchful, Shikar the large male African lion alert and ready to move.

Possibly one of the first side portraits I have taken of a big cat where you can see the cornea of the eye. He was such a big proud beast.

Bright Eyes And Big Ears!

This beautiful little creature is called a Fennec Fox, its no larger if not smaller than your average house cat, they come from the Sahara in North Africa and the ears have evolved to be so large as to enable them to hear predators and they also disperse heat. 

Its one of those animals you fall in love with and although they can be kept in captivity as pets they do not fare well like this.

Sorry for the bombardment today, you will be pleased to know I'm in work tomorrow so I will give you alla breather

He Wears It Well!

Wolfgang's coat looks so much better on him than draped over the shoulders of an ugly person, sorry if I offend but thats the intention, if you wear fur you're ugly!

Its not often I upload more than one image a day but I was in awe of these beautiful cats.

With A Caress And A Dream

As the sun comes down to kiss the land
I'll watch the caress of light
In dreams awake surrounds with fantasy
Call of days long past
To the times to come
With a caress and a dream
I am renewed



This was the long exposure image I managed to do just before I dropped the camera and smashed the filters, always said I needed to narrow down my genres ;)

To Be Hunted

It was that moment when he saw me and decided to look further, I was focused on him as he stealthily came ever closer never once taking his eyes of mine. It was like a rabbit caught in headlights and I can understand how their prey at times are transfixed by these wonderful creatures. Their deep yellow eyes hold you static and even though you know its not going to end well moving just stops being an option.

And it just keeps getting better :/

I'm currently in the lakes with my wife and it bee wonderful. I decided to try and some long exposure landscapes as I have not done many for a long while. Managed to do a couple then I dropped my camera! Again! I dropped it not long ago, broke the battery grip so it no longer shuts without a piece of paper wedged in it and electrical tape. Broke the on/off switch so I've had to set it to automatically shut down after two minutes of inactivity. I no longer have a dial face for the settings toggle as that came off but fortunately I shoot in manual mode for 99% of the time. This time I managed to smash my lee big stopper X10 filter, No6 soft NDGrad, 72mm adaptor ring and the outer ring to my Tonika 11-16mm wide angle lens!

No more landscapes shots for a while now :/

As We Wake
And the morn does release our slumber
With hues of golds and red
Upon the sky painted
Crystal jewels of dew doth glisten
Beneath feet caressed by green
And the day does call our name
Herald the sun into place
As we wake
We breath once more
And rejoice in light and love.


It seems like a lifetime since I last went out early for a landscape shoot, maybe I need to do it more often.

Where Did You Go To?

She had stopped to cross the road at the opposite side to me, she waited for the lights on the crossing to change, as she did she went somewhere else for just a moment, you could see her mind take her to some other place rather than a metropolis on a wet and dreary day.

One of the joys of being not only a street photographer but a people watcher too is what wanders through your life. It may only be brief but that is all it takes, you see people who momentarily let the mask slip and when they do its a new world with so many questions that will never be answered.

This is day 5 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge  that was given to me by +Chrysta Rae and I have really enjoyed doing this, over the last few years I have learnt just how much fun black and white processing can be.

Dear Prudence

I hate dolls, more so old dolls, they kind of freak me out somewhat, especially when their faces become worn and cracked and their dead eyes still look out. 

This is day 4 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge  that I was given by +Chrysta Rae and as its coming up to Halloween I thought this older image converted to black and white seemed apt.

Don't have nightmares ;)

The fun bit is I get to nominate someone else to have a go. This time I would like to see +Tamara Pruessner have a go :)

The King And I

Over the last three years or so I have spent a lot of time watching Iblis the Asiatic lion. Times when he plays like a kitten, times when he goes on the attack and the lionesses have to hide. Then there are the times when he sits still and contemplates the world around him. Its at these times I can feel his power the most, silent and brooding, he has nothing to prove to anyone and no reason to even try.


This is day three of the #fiveblackandwhitephotoschallenge   that I was given by +Chrysta Rae in return today I would like to challenge +Barry Blanchard :)

Please vote for Adopt A Bull Terrier Rescue, its the organisation I volunteer for as a coordinator in the Merseyside region, as you can see we are very much behind so need as much help as you can give by simply clicking a button You can vote once a day so lets see the power of social media and see if we can turn it around.

The Eyes Of The Lost

His beard has grown and shows more grey, teeth more discoloured and showing decay, hands rougher and dirt now ingrained deep under the nails, cheeks becoming hollow under skin a paler grey. I have met Chris a few times, sat in the same spot, does not have a begging bowl, does not hold his hand out and ask for money. He either sits there as the world goes by or he sleeps sat up. On the streets since the breakup of a relationship finding he has nowhere to go. 

I see his deterioration each time I meet him, he becomes more hollow, more invisible and the eyes become more those of a man simply lost and I feel helpless, I give what I can and food but I always leave thinking I have not done enough, one day I will come back and he won't be there. I hope things have turned around but I fear the worse.

Come With Me

Down the rabbit hole
To a land within my mind
A fantasy within my soul
Places lost upon the sane
Places lost upon the mad
With twisted boughs
And fractured dreams
Come with me
Down the rabbit hole
And stay awhile
A lifetime to sleep

The Fun Of Being A Street Photographer

Sometimes its fun, its not always doom and gloom and sometimes you don't have to go searching for subject, they come to you.
This is Spider, he came over for a chat as I was wearing my bike leathers and on the back of my waistcoat I have the patch that says Lone Wolf No Club so he asked what it meant.

Turned out Spider was a biker in the day, was a Hells Angel and rode a Norton Commando but stopped when he lost the bike. We spoke for a good while and he was a real character. He was more than happy for me to take his portrait and this was a test shot but I like the it.

We Keep Getting It Wrong

This is Mark.
He is 45.
He lives on the street, been that long he can't remember how long.
Why is he on the streets?

Drugs?

Drink?

No, he had a nervous breakdown. Once again a person with a mental disability ends up on the street because we have no idea just how to care for them.

Belief

I have been spending more and more time around animals, they fascinate me to a level I can stand and observe them for hours on end. When you do this you get to see things that others miss, you get to see a resemblance to actions you know.

I watched this chimp sit and take stock of his surrounding, sat on his haunches, arms crossed in front of him just watching his part of the world pass him by. Then I thought back to many times I have done this as well, sat on a wall in a city center, arms folded in front of me watching my part of the world go by.

Does he think as I do?

Does he contemplate what is happening?

Does he consider those around him and what might be going through their minds?

Beauty Is

I have always been fascinated by why we as a species believe is beauty. In our normal way we pigeon hole everything so we can make sense of the world around. Good, bad, beautiful, ugly and so on.

Yet in doing so we dismiss so much that does not seem to fit the construct we build around it. Vultures are considered ugly by so many people yet this creature is perfectly designed by nature to do what it needs to do to survive. The head sat upon a long and gangly neck, not as many feathers and a fearsome beak  built for nothing more than getting into carcasess to feed. The wings long and broad to allow it to soar high overhead upon the thermals to look for food.

These birds are considered ugly only in our own sense of being, in nature they are beautiful.

Getting Old

Probably the biggest fear in the western world after death but both are inevitable. So much time and effort is invested in trying to retain youth, a whole industry has been constructed around that will sell you anything as long as you believe it to be the elixir of youth.

Models are paraded that are photoshopped and airbrushed that that have no connection to reality. Forced fed this consumer led dream of eternal youth. We want what we cannot have.

Getting old is natural, its a process that will determine the lines in your skin, the brittleness of your bones and the silver within your hair. You cannot stave it off forever, eventually the plastic implants, face lifts and all other masks we place over ourselves will no longer be able to stop nature.

Some though simply embrace it, life is too short to fight something you don't really have much... more »

More Than Skin Deep

No implants.
No make up
No false eyelashes
No steroids
No tattoos
No false hair
No false nails
No liposuction

When nature is allowed to be what it is then beauty will always run more than skin deep.

Only Seconds To React

But if you want the shot you have to react, how long did it take me to realise I had to take her image as she walked past? Seconds.

How long do I have to turn around and approach her? Seconds

How long did I have to put her at ease and explain why this goof had called out and was holding a camera? Seconds

How long did it ask to take her image? Seconds

How long did it take to fire off the two shots I took? Seconds

How long did it take to thank her and pass on my details should she want a copy? Seconds

The total time spent was probably no more than two minutes but those two minutes allowed me to get the shot. You have to be ready, you have to have the balls to it in the first place but when you work around it, street portraits can be some of the most rewarding photography you can do.

That Look

Every now and then you will come across an animal that can give you a look that will stop you dead in your tracks, its as if you have done something wrong. This great grey owl did just that today, I felt as if I had been chastised by a look alone.

If You Could See

Mental illness what would you do?

Would you run in fear from the demons on their back? Knowing they had no escape.

Would you shy away from the deeps wounds that bleed within their minds?

Would the cracks that appear under their skin fill you with as much fear as it does them?

Could you stand the dizzying heights looking down at the depths of despair they are in?

Would you look for a way out at the bottom of a bottle, a needle of escape stuck in your arm, the last pills that remain within the bottle you take or the hope the concrete will soon make it stop as you fall?

Mental illness is a quiet killer, a silent assassin that leaves no mark, it will at some point come for everyone in their lives, some to change the rest of their lives for ever, others to a lesser degree.

But for how long before you find a demon on your back?___

To the xenophobes, the bigots, the racists, the haters and the flag burners. To the nationalists, the separatists, the discriminators and the cross burners.

This is my flag, the flag of my country, the birthplace of modern democracy and the freedom to speak. It is not yours to use so as to bring shame, to bring fear, to undermine and repulse. 

I am proud of who I am and of my country, I am proud that others wish to come to a better life here, I am proud to drape the flag over me, I am not proud of you and what you do in my flags name, no more, time to reclaim it for what it is.

We Are All Tribal

It's just the tribes are much bigger now.

They say how we look should not define us but from the first time humankind stepped on this planet it always has. Being a social animal we separated into different sects or tribes and eventually we defined our part within that tribe by the way we looked, it also defined us to other tribes.

This has never changed, we think it has but it never has. People will and always have adorned themselves in one way or another to differentiate themselves from others but by doing so put themselves into a category of like minded individuals.

I myself consider myself a tribal member by being a biker and by being part of a sub tribe within that great tribe as we define each other by the bikes we ride and the leathers/patches we wear.

Some will go out and and alter their body by having tattoos,... more »

Some will go out and and alter their body by having tattoos, piercings and even to the extremes of body modifications to differentiate themselves. Others feel that by putting a suit and tie they are the norm within the establishment but by doing even this you're associating where your allies lie.

You may feel you are different but look around, you are part of the biggest tribe on the planet, the human race, it within what sub tribe you fit that will define you. ___

Not All Scars Are Visible.

Some wear them as a badge of honour, battle weary but still fighting. Some though have scars within, hidden through stigma and a need for acceptance but battle weary and still fighting too.

We judge by what we see, we ignore what we can't, we pretend it OK but we know it's not.

Look deeper than the scars bared, look for the ones that others try to hide only then can you soothe the pain they feel.

Forever Alert

There are times when I stand and watch the bigs cats asleep, what you think is a deep sleep is broken by their eyes opening and they look for a brief moment before turning back to their slumber. You realise no matter what these beautiful creatures are forever alert.


Don't forget you can still vote for me in the animal section of the Olympus Protege competition here: http://www.olympusproteges.co.uk/journeys/animals/
You can vote more than once if you so wish, sorry to keep banging this drum but it is important to me and what I want to go on to do. My aim is to get into endangered animal photography on a more professional basis to highlight what is happening, this could be a vital stepping stone to help me on my way, thank you.

And Then

I awoke but the dream remained.
And then
Within the morn I drifted to fantasy
And then 
The whispers did sing to me
And then 
I was carried upon a cloud
And then......................


The stories we tell belong to everyone, we each have a part to play within this drama called life, take center stage and bathe within the light cast upon you.

I have been fortunate enough to have been put through to the finals of the Olympus Protege competition within the animal section. If I am fortunate enough to win then I get a new camera from them and kit, I get to spend time learning from a professional within the animal photography genre and at the end I will get an exhibition of my work.

Its not often I ask for favours but I am asking for one now, please follow the link and if you like what I do then please hit the tweet to vote button under my name and image, if you don't then please feel free to vote for one of the other finalists. This last section is all down to a public vote so its make or break from here in.

You may not feel I need the help, I do need new kit as mine is starting to show its age and I'm not a professional so buying such kit has to be a balance... more »

You may not feel I need the help, I do need new kit as mine is starting to show its age and I'm not a professional so buying such kit has to be a balance between that and paying bills. I have also never had any formal training with a camera, its always been a case of hitting buttons until I got something I liked so a lot more of the in depth knowledge is beyond me and can only help me improve. More than anything the exhibition will help me more than anything in being able to maybe turn the corner into professional work.

So please follow the link and if you wish please vote, drinks are on me for all that do ;) ___

The Alternate You

You exist in more than flesh and skin, you are more than the machine that drives you. We are part of something we know little about but restrict ourselves to beliefs unless we seem at odds with the rest of the world. Within shadows and reflections we can be infinite, within this universe we can either be a speck or part of the stardust that makes up the atoms that we are.

The only limitations to what you are, what you do, how you think and how you live is you, skew your head to the side and focus on something unremarkable and allow your imagination to release you from your confines, be infinite.
