They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire.

David Bowden37,155Its been awhile....For over three years I collected and shared an exclusive B&W circle. This circle "was" one of the most shared on G+ for awhile. I would share it once a month with everyone as a part of my personal desire to share more quality B&W images and photographers. The requirement for being in this circle was that the photographer shot at least 60% B&W images (I tend to shoot 80%).There are some excellent photographers and friends here. I encourage you to take a look at their work. While I know that bulk circle sharing is a thing of the past or no longer the norm on G+ (which is a shame) I wanted to re-share a collection of truly inspirational people.You wont be disappointed. Re-share if you like their work</david>2014-05-06 23:16:1649012223CC G+

Paige Keaton57,548In memory of +Dirk Talamasca I am sharing a circle of friends from G+ I have shoved into a circle named. People Worth Keeping. As he was really into getting people connected. This circle is 700 people deep and it only shares 500. I need to split this in 2 and share all of you lovelies.. Dirk was a bad ass. He was what G+ was all about. Enjoyed many hours online during Beta with him. Really sucks when people die on here.   #RIPDIRKTALAMASCA   #shareyourpeople  2014-03-31 01:45:085017238CC G+

Peter Bryant7,517Fill your stream with great photosAdd these guys if you enjoy seeing original, awesome, photos in your stream. I've been curating this list for a couple of years.  I typically cherry pick people here only after viewing their stream and seeing a consistent set of images I enjoy.  I mostly don't put people here that simply re-share photos.There are a few of the 'to be expected' photo big shots.  Plus a few great (yet unknown, uncommonly followed) photographers.+Shared Circles on G+ #sharedcircles #photographers  2013-07-23 02:10:15373839CC G+

I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050114186132CC G+

This might make you misty eyed. Does show there are still some good people who will do a kindness for a stranger to ease their pain. The world just became 1% less evil today.

A father wanted a photo of his daughter who recently died in hospital  "without all her tubes," and posted the request on Reddit. Redditors responded with photoshopped photos.

"All I wanted was a nice picture. What I received was a lot of love and support from a bunch of strangers," the father said.

Wow. I certainly missed out on some brilliant ideas in the past when I shot pregnancy nudes.
No nudes in this link. Just questionable 'art direction' and choices. :)

It is better to know.
If you like Stephen Colbert and Neil deGrasse Tyson, this long form video (just under 90mins) shot on stage at a school a few years ago is great. Some really interesting Q and A between the pair and the audience too. #Science   #neildegrassetyson   #stephencolbert

FYI: APP THAT COPIES KEYS
For those who host parties or if you go to them (you social extroverts you!), I want you to really keep this in mind. If you leave your keys in a bowl by the front door, or in the pocket of your coat piled on the bed with every other guest (and ID in that coat to point back to you). You are risking someone using a phone app to easily copy your keys in seconds and gain access to your house/apartment/cottage/work etc. There is at least one simple and legal iPhone app to do it.

The challenge of going through old photos instead of shooting new photos is my wanting to try different Lightroom processing as my tastes have changed now and then in what I would like to see as a final finished image. This isn't unheard of as many film photogs who made prints at different times - sometimes decades apart, would end up having visually different results, but it is time consuming. :)

Ugh.  A Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 (flight MH17) en route from Amsterdam to KL crashes in Eastern Ukraine. Various reports suggest it was shot down by a missile. So far that is not confirmed.

This might make you misty eyed. Does show there are still some good people who will do a kindness for a stranger to ease their pain. The world just became 1% less evil today.

A father wanted a photo of his daughter who recently died in hospital  "without all her tubes," and posted the request on Reddit. Redditors responded with photoshopped photos.

"All I wanted was a nice picture. What I received was a lot of love and support from a bunch of strangers," the father said.

Posted several places but also at the CBC: http://goo.gl/iYFR45

The moral of this scene is this: just because someone appears to not understand you, it doesn't that they don't. And Dragons are not slaves. Valar More-crispy-us

Despite Throw Back Thursday sounding like it is a fishing related day... This is a selfie of me standing outside the Scaled Composites facility at the Mojave Civilian Aerospace Testing Facility, Mojave, California (aka the Mojave Airport) in November 2004. Six weeks before this pic, the X-Prize was won here and it is now where Sir +Richard Branson and  +Virgin Galactic test and build their spaceships.

I tried to go in and get a tour, but was politely turned away. Even the memorabilia and photos inside the reception area were mind blowing.

Good Grief. The Society of Women Artists in the UK had their 153rd annual exhibition. A piece called 'Ruby Mae, Standing' by artist Leena McCall was one of the juried selections. But The Mall Galleries, hosting the exhibit, took it down after complaints. And did so without consulting the artist or the group who rented the gallery. People really need to get a grip.

The Distance Measuring Tool is back in the new version of Google Maps. I know I wasn't the only one to offer feedback on it, but it was nice to get an email from the Google Maps team about this - and with a clever title too.  Thanks  +Google Maps !  :)

PBS Frontline / Channel4 (UK)'s Olly Lambert was filming in 2012 in al-Bara, Syria when a large airstrike occurred 300 meters away. He kept filming and spent about an hour documenting the aftermath of that strike and then the follow up airstrike's impact.  The madness and chaos is strangely juxtaposed against  Lambert's calm narration - done in post.

This is why war photographers and videographers earn their pay. Heading in the wrong direction when you should be leaving the area. Just to tell a story. To get word out about something. Telling stories like these, not just in Syria, is important. Even if sometimes we don't want to know about them.

While edited, this is pretty raw video and there are disturbing scenes of bodies and victims being pulled from debris - and a lot of shouting so if you have your speakers turned up you might want to turn them down a bit.more »

That was... a rout  6-3, 6-0. But I am pretty sure this is not the last time the name Eugenie Bouchard will be heard in a final at Wimbledon. She needs to play more power left handed players and she will be on top.

And as the old Klingon proverb goes, 'revenge is a dish best served cold.'  :)

I did a version of this image around the time I shot it, but decided a bw conversion suited the image more today.

Cuban Cars. 
This NPR post and accompanying 4min audio clip is pretty good. I know if I went to Cuba I wouldn't stay in a resort except to sleep. And I would be shooting cars and local colour 24/7. Even if, like the NPR brief said, I was told to shoot everything but cars. :)

+Larry Page and +Sergey Brin 2004: "Google users trust our systems to help them with important decisions ..."

Please stop #copyrightinfringement  on +Google+ !

The number of copyright infringements is going up like crazy and it's getting very annoying and frustrating especially for the copyright holders. 

There are solutions which could be implemented and that would give Google+ a BIG PLUS and to the world a clear statement that you really mean what you made the informal corporate motto (or slogan) of Google.

The last screenshot ever from my Flickr account. My Pro account has expired. And tbh it's not worth paying for anymore, but after nine years on Flickr it is sad the numbers are all gone - just because Yahoo can't be bothered - which is essentially their overall business model when it comes to Flickr.  Ah well. I know the stats are still there adding up as invisible zeros and ones on some server somewhere. :/

I just remembered why I don't post much on Flickr. Their 'Uploadr' is a piece of slow molasses. Selecting groups to put an image in seems like you are on dial up when you are picking them. Sigh. But I wanted to post one more image on there as a Pro. One people could see here as a link. And probably have already seen here. But perhaps not. :)

Leia Beach Day, Nude with Driftwood, No.8

So today or tomorrow is the last day of nine years of me being a Pro on Flickr. Saying that doesn't mean as much as it once did, but I am a little sad.

So, much like Leia here (which you can't see unless you are a Flickr member), touch wood and lets hope Yahoo doesn't ramp down Flickr completely and it continues on for some time to come. It has been my longest running home on the internet, and despite its issues I have grown fond of Flickr.

That is an absurd amount of ducks. You will never ever see more ducks in one spot again. Ever. The snaking flow of the ducks as they made their way down the road was fascinating.

A really good review of the brand new Adobe Ink and Slide from the Tested folks. Skip to 17m40s or so to see the review. Prior to then are comparisons to other pens stylus/styli interfaces.  Adobe Ink and Slide is just iPad iOS for now and the square footage you get to play with is too small, but if you have some artistic skill and want to do more than doodle, and would like to make straight lines with a ruler, watch this review. Maybe there will be one on the Android or MS Surface type tablets soon.

Eleven sentinels
A rework of an image from 2012. I can't find what I called it that summer (you can search your stream, but by hashtags your stream is not a visible option), so I thought this was a good title for these posts on a curved entry way to a building.
