Dubie Bacino75,453Inspiring on Google+ Curated by @Opajdara (6th 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. -----------------------------------------I keep meeting interesting people here, and making new friends, thanks to being shared in many public circles. Which is why I am now sharing two of my circles every month:  - ENGAGERS:https://plus.google.com/115150058179114869418/posts/VoTTuEj8SYUthose 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:https://plus.google.com/u/0/115150058179114869418/posts/aVFsr1YBXNcmainly 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.

Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/2)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca  #sharedcircles #circles #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:30:374321214692CC G+

Gailen Mapes61,362Hand 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.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 +2014-03-29 11:45:451911318CC G+

You Have To Believe Anything Is Possible

Talking on another site about the way as photographers we struggle to be different. So many photographers have produced so much work over the decades it's getting harder and harder to become "original"

But why is that so important?

We learn through imitation, our parents speak to us and we speak back. Our education system is based on imitation of those who have been trained to make us imitate them so we fit into society.

What you produce may not always be original, that's not the issue so don't get all bent up about that. Concentrate on making it recognisable, get that right and you have turned down the right fork in the road.

I Am King

My favourite big cat Iblis from the wonderful +Chester Zoo  an Asiatic male lion that never ceases to stun me into silence when I watch him. Sorry if you are fed with seeing his images but I can never get fed up photographing him.

Lets Talk About This Technique
Its something I stumbled across when post editing another big cat image many years ago, a shot taken in everyday surroundings made to look as though it was done in a studio. At the time I didn't even know the style had a name, its Chiaroscuro and its been around in art for centuries. So no, its not something new and its not unique to me.

I have been asked many times about how I get it like this so I put a method up on my blog: http://mikefshaw.blogspot.co.uk/2011/10/how-to-edit-ages-of-man.html Once again, its just the way I do it, the technique is not mine.

Harry home at last.

After nearly a week of being at the vets and at one point thinking we were going to lose him he is back home with us. Still a little sore on his legs but he has the right meds with him to put him right. One of the first he did (apart from fart on me) is to try and chase one of the cats. I noticed though his tail wagging all the time so I think it's curiosity more than anything else.

It amazing just how much of an impact he has made on all of us, he became a member of the family the minute we saw him. I could not contemplate him not being here now.

I have to give a huge thank you to the people that run www.adoptabullterrierrescue.co.uk who have helped us throughout this, the support has been phenomenal. And also the vet Kathryn who would not give up on Harry

Fascination

I do, have a complete and utter fascination of the human race. There is something about people that draws me in, makes me sit outside for hours on end and watch as each one passes me by, everyone different from the next. The differences we are born with, colour of skin, height, weight, looks, then there are the differences we adorn ourselves with, style of clothing, hairstyles, make up, expressions, ethnic influences through race, religion, some then go to the next level and adorn their bodies, piercings, tattoos, implants, plastic surgery. Then the changes we cant influence that come with the aging process.

No two of us are the same, its a parade of individualism that is only here within nature, the rest of the animal kingdom follows a norm set within its genetics but we have changed, becoming different from the norm.  Each and every time I sit and people watch I... more »

Hi All.

I want to let you know about a wonderful organisation that has helped us with Harry, the English bull terrier we adopted last week.

Poor Harry has not been well, he fell sick on Sunday and could not bear his won weight on his back legs, we had to rush him to an emergency vet were they gave him painkillers and something to bring his high temperature down, we brought him home to care for him before taking him back to the vets the next day. They did a lot of tests on him, full bloods etc, he has been on a drip to get his fluids up and painkillers with antibiotics. He will be staying in for two nights (hopefully he will come home tomorrow) He has had X-rays done and fluids taken from his joints, turns out Harry has sever arthritis in his right front elbow and left rear knee. to add to his misfortunes he also has a urinary tract infection that might be causing his high temp. more »

Still Smiling

The one thing I have noticed whenever I meet Peter is no matter how much of a mess everything is for him at some point in the conversation he will smile. Sometimes its just fleeting, sometimes its a long smile but whatever it is it lights his face up. You would think he has little to smile about but he is philosophical about his situation and takes most things with just a shrug of his shoulders. I was there in my younger days but fortunately  for only a short time, not the many years Peter has spent living on the streets, I think I would struggle ever to find anything to smile about.

Meeting Peter always makes me realise just how lucky in life I am, for what I have but also for knowing him.

They Gave Me Fur

To protect to who I am, to hide me from view, to keep me warm and help me survive.

They did not give me fur to deal with your insecurities mankind, to adorn your bodies to make the ugly feel beautiful, to hang on your walls to make the week feel strong, to be killed to make you feel more like men.

They gave me fur for a reason, that reason is not for you to steal it.

The time has come for humankind to grow up as a species and learn to look after what it shares and not destroy it.

Tender Is A Mothers Love

We stood and watched as she had a hand full of carrots, one by one she put them in her mouth and just seemed to roll them around spitting bits out. It was only then did we realise she was actually peeling them, once she was happy with the carrot she passed it to her baby. Orangutans are very agile creatures, they can get up and around to the canopies of forests like most primates with ease taking their young with them, no matter what we feel the danger is if you observe them long enough you realise, just like humans, or maybe better than some people out there, they never allow their young to be in any danger.

Say hello to Harry, rescue Bully who is staying with us to see if he can get on with the cats, at the moment he likes to chase them but I think he may end up learning the hard way. He is so placid otherwise, you can lift him up, check his teeth, eyes, ears, paws and so on with no problem at all.

The Lost World

You do not see it as you slumber in the morning light, covers pulled over your head to stay warm, you cannot see the mist and fog mingle within the morning sunrise as it rises from the damp ground, warmed by the golden glow. The landscape shrouded in a veil of dense air, this lost world to you, this morning serenade to me.

We are off to see Rocky today, an all white English bull terrier, 5 years old and easy going, we know he is good with cats as his owner had an old one that eventually died and he grieved for it. All being well he will be coming home with us :)

Strange

A few years ago I was someone that likes to take pictures. Fast forward a bit and it all kinda went nuts.

I'm not a big one for numbers and stats but sometimes it does blow me away. I'm about to hit 300,000 followers on Facebook and I still have to figure out why. According to Circle Count I'm still in the top 100 profiles on G+ top 4 in the UK with the likes of Jamie Oliver and a couple of other real celebs above me.

All this aside I have always said that the one number you should look out for is interaction, that is where it really counts. I have only just noticed that G+ has a new feature, they now show page views and I have over 66 million!! How the hell did that come about, it's near the size of the population of the UK 0.o

She Wore Flowers In Her Hair

As photographers we have to be aware of so much, the subject, the foreground, the background, focal length, exposure and so on. When you are working with a compliant subject its easy, you can take your time to get it just right, wild animals tend to be not so compliant.

I saw this female Asiatic lioness at +Chester Zoo  walking around the daffodils that were growing her in enclosure so I followed her hoping she would get closer, she then lied in front, I got down low and waited her to look straight at me with the flowers in the background surrounding her head. It was one of those occasions were all the elements came together to give me the shot I wanted and yes it luck, you cant pre-plan with animals but sometimes it just works.

Through hues of gold and green
And warmth of morning light
With birdsong to serenade
Gentle winds to dance upon your face
Through dew drifts glitter

This earth blessed

The Mass Cuggle

So whats a cuggle? Its a hug but you dont let go like a cuddle, it becomes a cuggle. This is a troop of crested macaques getting ready to bed down for the night, keeps them warm and safe being in a group. 

It also bonds the troop, something we as humans have lost over the centuries, makes you wonder who really got it right.

The Kiss

Lets Talk About Zoo's

There are good people and there are bad people, there are good companies and there are bad companies, as in zoo's there are good zoo's and there are bad zoo's.

We have a habit of tarring zoo's though with the same brush and that is just wrong. Until I became involved with photographing animals a few years ago I too was reticent about zoo's as well. I was though fortunate to live near one of the best zoo's in the world.

I know that's a sweeping statement but having become a member of +Chester Zoo and seeing the work they do I now feel I can say this.

This is a charity registered zoo, there are no shareholders and its a non profit organisation, for every pound spent on the entrance fee 25% is put into conservation. The majority of the keepers are volunteers, they work for free,... more »

She Waits

She watches.

For that one right moment.

Eyes intent.

Seeing every movement.

Sitting downwind.

Then up from her haunches she launches.

Then you have moments to survive.


Or not.


Female Siberian tiger, she does not need a gun to hunt, her prey is not for mounting on walls, its to eat, this is the the only way wildlife should be shot, through the lens of a camera and not the barrel of a gun.

The Best Piece Of Equipment I Have?

Is my anonymity.

Seems a strange thing to say but its taken me a very very long time to realise this but it seems to have sunk in eventually. As a photographer we strive to become known, to make a name for ourselves, our fifteen minutes of fame so to say.

That's were we go awry. It should not be ourselves that we want to make known, its our work. 

I fell into something I now consider the right place to be, I can walk out my front door without anyone even knowing who I am but I can post my photographs online and they get a response as one of my images. I have written a book and released it and working through my second, I have been published around the world in various magazines and had a chapter of an artists book written about myself.

But as I leave my front door no one knows me from Adam. I have become... more »

My Chill Out Spot

We share up to 99% of our DNA with these great apes called chimps. When you spend time watching them, how they interact with each other within the troop and more so when they decide to go off and spend time by themselves do you start to wonder if we share more than that? 

I do this on a regular basis, get off by myself to do nothing but sit and contemplate, away from everyone else, just me and my thoughts. I watched as this chimp did much the same, simply sat away from the troop, head o hands staring off into the distance. They say we are the only ones capable of sentient thought, I don't and cant believe that. It by watching moments like this you have to wonder what is going through the chimps mind, it cant be sat there with nothing passing through its mind, if so why bother sitting there in the first place?

So!

You are out taking street shots, you spot someone who has a wonderful face, full of expression and beautiful freckles, you raise your camera to take the shot as she see's you at the same time. Looks directly at you and you can see her through your viewfinder looking straight back at you. Do you take the shot or put the camera down?

As you can see I took the shot, then I put the camera down and smiled at her, the smile I got back lit up her face, she walked on still smiling.

There has been times when it has gone the other way, some have not been happy about having a candid picture taken but its rare as I believe they will react the same way you will, just smile, it works wonders but always take the shot regardless.

Elements Of Nature

Only nature can really control this earth we reside on, we like to believe we are masters of all we have, at best we can only imitate nature and its a poor imitation at that.

Standing on the banks of Lake Derwent in the Lake District as the sun sets over snow  capped mountains you realise that you are a part of something far greater than your own peripheral vision. The cold blue hues begin to merge with the deep warmth reds of the sun and cast a palette of colours to take your breath away. Everything comes into place, the cold nip in the air and the vapour as it leaves your mouth mingles with the air. The sound of the water as it laps upon the shore, the calling of birds as they begin to bed down for the night, only nature can do this, she is the true master of this earth and long may she reign.

So you think talent shows will make you?

Bullshit.

They will take the raw talent that is you and put you onto a stage to perform on the likes of the voice, the X factor Britains/America or whatever country you come from. They then take that raw talent then throw you through the same mincer that churns out the same old dross that infects our music industry. The stylists will drag you away from what you are and make you more acceptable to the public eye, they will use you for as long as they can while they can make a profit but when done they will discard you as fast as they took you on.

You want to make it? Stay in your garage, play the music you love not the music you are told to sing and when you do the passion for what you will do will sustain you longer than anything promised by the pay check the likes of Simon Cowel sees in you. It's nothing but business. ... more »

Iron Lion Zion

When ever I visit Iblis at +Chester Zoo this song from Bob Marely plays in my head and one of the lines from the song repeats in my head "I have to run like a fugitive to save the life I live" and it reminds me of the plight of these magnificent beasts. Don't believe even the lions are safe anymore, they are as endangered as most animals out there, more so Iblis's species the Asiatic Lion, now only about 350 left in the wild.

Its Not Anger
That gets to you after fifteen years of living on the streets, its the tiredness, of your bones seizing up after sleeping in the rain and cold, the chest infection that makes you hack up most of your lungs. Its the looking older than you are as your skin and bones rebel against you, its the constant weariness of just trying to eat, to survive, to stay warm, to exist, to be seen.

Your first impression of this image of Peter may well be one of a man screaming in anger, its not, he can no longer muster the energy to be angry, he has just given up, this is just a yawn from someone that is simply tired off all life has thrown at him.

Memories Of The Sea

As time and tide passes over
Like a lovers gentle caress
The sea models the shore
Into memories of where it once was
A sculpture of nature
Rippled with the sand
And with hues of gold
From setting suns
I shall see the memories
The sea has left behind


So many things we take for granted, the simpleness of sand rippled on a beach when the tide has gone out, little dips and rises telling where the sea once was, reflected in the light of the sun will give you the most beautiful zen moments of life.

What Will You Give Up?

Out shopping with my wife yesterday I came across a vintage backpack, my wife will tell you I have a thing for backpacks and this being vintage was wonderful, full of old badges and somewhat rough around the edges. The price a very reasonable £10.

But I didn't buy it.

Not long before I found the bag I came across Peter again sat outside a church trying to keep warm. People coming and going from the church simply chose to ignore Peter, I chose to do as I usually do when I meet him, sat and have a chat.

It seems the winter has been unkind to him, with all the rain we have been having he has found it impossible to stay dry and warm, this has given him a chest infection. He just wants the warmer weather to come so he can stay warm. After 15 years on the streets the winters are really taking their toll now.

So why did I not... more »

Life

Life, its such a simple word for what it encompasses, just four letters long L I F E, saol, leben, hidup, maisha, lifio, lavi, So many different ways to say the same thing but so many different ways to fail to understand just what it is.

We share a rock that rotates around its own axis, this rock rotates around a dwarf star at the center of our solar system. Its sits though at just the right distance away to ensure the temperature can sustain life. Its spins at just the right speed to ensure we are firmly planted upon its earth, to give us the air we breathe, the water and food to sustain ourselves.

Buts its not just us, its not just our rock that spins around a dwarf sun., its not turning just right on its own axis just for the human race. Everything that came together spawned not just us but a biodiversity so immense we fail to be able to understand itall. ... more »

As Angels Whisper
And the breeze dances on
The colour of sound
Is at peace within
Even the orchestra of being
Plays a melodious air
To compose a rhapsody 
To fill your soul
Listen deep
Listen well
And see what the angles will whisper.



Long time no landscapes, time for a few and time to bring some more colour into my life.

You Must Have Mistaken Me
For a bird that can be bothered!

I spent time with this young owl and I have to say I have never come across another animal that simply could not be bothered any more than him. I'm pretty sure his call translated to "Whatever" 

His grumpiness made him all the more fun to be around.

Time for a splash of colour too methinks :)

That Knowing Stare

You know it, an animal looks at you and for a fleeting moment it makes a connection with you then looks away. Its in that fleeting moment you understand more than you ever thought, its through that fleeting moment the animal speaks to you, of what it is, its ancestry, its heritage. Then as it looks away you understand what our ancestry and heritage has done to it.

Hunted until near extinction for no other reason than to say someone killed it, the meat is not eaten, the skins are not worn, the remains are no more than a trophy, a braggarts plaything.

A female Asiatic lion, they say there are only between 200 to 300 left in the wild and captivity, I wonder how many grace the floors/walls of moronic hunters?

The Girl With The Eyes Of A Ghost
And deep within your soul she will stare
To reveal a melancholy of youth
To reveal a reminiscence of you
The girl with the eyes of a ghost
See's what you once was 
And what you shall become
For her's is the eyes we all see with
Our windows reflection upon this life
Look deep to feel your span of time
Look deep to know there is more than you will ever realise


A young photographer I met on the streets of Chester city, I no little of her due to the language barrier, I think she was Swedish, the only other language we both knew was that of photography.

Its Not Painful

Its not painful when you run out of coffee first thing in the morning.
Its not painful when you cant afford the latest phone on the market.
Its not painful when you have to get up for work.
Its not painful when the time has come around again to decorate your house.
Its not painful when you have to pay that heating bill.

Its painful waking up in a shop doorway.
Its painful not knowing when you are next going to eat.
Its painful having to sit on the street asking strangers for help.
Its painful trying to stay warm in the middle of winter with nothing but a sleeping bag and the clothes on your back.
Its painful when you have nothing.
Its painful when you have no one.

International Women's Day

To all of those that brighten our lives I would just like to say thank you.

Today is International Woman's day and I thought it would be nice to have a new tradition meet an old one with a portrait of a Pearly Queen.

The Street Cat

Living under a truck with its mother and two other siblings in Greece I watched as they fed from her teat, still too young to fend for themselves but almost there. Always watching, even when feeding they do not take their eyes off you, a trait of feral cats I see so much when observing big cats, all just as beautiful as each other, regardless of size.

The Sage

I always find it amazing how we are preconditioned to believe from things taught in childhood. From the stories of wise owls and the terrifying vampire bats when in all reality neither fit within the categories we have placed them.

Much of the same can be said of how we preconceive each other, Muslims are terrorists, Americans wrap themselves in the flag and know nothing of much beyond their own borders, the English are snobs with stiff upper lips and the Germans suffer from over starched underwear. 

Truth be told we all differ and thank whatever god you believe in for that. As in the animal kingdom we all have traits and ways of simply being that defy the preconceived ideas taught to us as children,

We are as diverse as we are numerous and none of us fit within the round holes society tries to ram us into.
