Gailen Mapes66,871Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  I-K - 6 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 +2014-08-06 10:25:22128407CC G+

Gailen Mapes65,720Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  I-K - 6 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 +2014-07-06 10:56:35131005CC G+

Sunset Seen From the Ocean Floor

With such low and high tides as we have here, I have found myself both scrambling to dry land up the cliffs on the rocks (as in the other day) and walking far out into the Bay of Fundy on land (not very dry) which is, twice a day buried deep under the waves.  I have even felt disturbed at the thought, wondering if I might end up sucked down into a sinkhole, never to be seen again. I was having just such thoughts the other evening as we were out walking Joni, when I turned around and saw the sky. The rivulets running down from streams that come from those cliffs reflected the clouds and evening light and colours, drawing my eye up to the land and then that dramatic sky.

Growing Pains Can Bring Tears-136/365

Last week the rain and warm temperatures brought a spurt of growth and suddenly my favourite plants and flowers are stretching their leaves and opening their blossoms. The new leaves here looked as if they were cocooned in tears as they grow.  I wish everyone a happy few days with balmy weather and the rain if you need it. As it falls on you remember how those drops look on this and know that these are the same drops that fall on you. 

The last few days have been hectic (and the next few will be, too), so I will post as I can.  I will also answer comments as I can as I really appreciate them all! :-)

Beach Home for Sale. Great View of the Bay

 (if at times a bit close for comfort)

The red cliffs along the bay of the Minas Basin, off the Bay of Fundy are constantly being whittled away by the relentless daily tides and the wind and weather. Many of the residents whose cottages are perilously close to the cliff edge have paid huge sums of money to have rocks and even giant boulders piled at the base of their properties in an attempt to slow the steady erosion of their land. 

The interesting results of this natural sculpturing are rock formations and caves that have been carved out as if by troglodyte builders, preparing dwellings for miniature people to inhabit. This particular one reminds us of a real sculpted giant shell which is in the town of Sarlat, near where we used to live. I imagine every tourist who has visited that town has a picture of his childreni... more »

I imagine every tourist who has visited that town has a picture of his children inside the walls of that shell. Do people take photographs of their children in this? Possibly they do, but I doubt that many venture very far along this beach to discover these tidal caves.

Watch out for the Tara Effect Filter on Your Camera Lens!

The other evening we stood talking to friends who had just come up from the beach with their 17 1/2 year old dog, Tara. Tara has joint problems but still loves her walk by the water, every day. They throw sticks into the water for her so that she gets to do some swimming in the salt water. It's a kind of therapy and possibly one reason that she has reached that ripe old age with as much mobility as she has. If she were a human being she would be over 100 years old and yet she walks daily and runs after her sticks. And she managed to shake herself with considerable vigour... all over me and my camera. :-(

I carefully wiped my lens with the edge of my (soft, clean) t-shirt and carried on down to our walk along the beach. I took a fair number of photographs of some of the birds by the shore and looked forward to seeing... more »

I carefully wiped my lens with the edge of my (soft, clean) t-shirt and carried on down to our walk along the beach. I took a fair number of photographs of some of the birds by the shore and looked forward to seeing what I had got when I got home. And I saw... what we now call "the Tara filter effect". The photographs were all soft, gently blurred, as though photographed through a piece of plastic. I looked at the lens, and it was filthy from the smeared spray off Tara's coat. Oh well. Lesson learned. :D

So, for this one, as I wanted to catch those drops flying off Joni's coat I was very careful to aim the lens at a safe enough distance. Let's hope the almost daily beach walks help her get to as ripe an age as that lovely old lady, Tara.

Supermoon,  August 10, 2014

Sometimes you can't go anywhere special to take a photograph. Sometimes the subject comes to you. Or is everywhere (almost). Barring cloudy skies, the supermoon was there for us all. And it almost didn't matter where you were to photograph it, because as long as you could get it in your viewfinder, the foreground was almost irrelevant. I wanted in this case, though, to include the soft pinky clouds that were under it as it rose, as well as the trees, giving some context to where I was when I took it. Anyone can take a photograph of the moon, many with far longer lenses than I. But only I took it from the field behind our house and the trees make this unique to me. I was pleased with the details in the moon, as well.

This supermoon was the closest to the earth this year, at its apogee, so looked the largest.

Least Sandpipers, Kingsport Beach, NS

As we were walking on the beach for the past few days, we have watched many small flocks of these little shorebirds as they foraged for food or swooped and dipped over the water. When in the air they keep a tight formation, wheeling and banking so that at times the flash of the underside of their wings makes them invisible against the water behind them. I hope I have identified them correctly, but will change the title if someone lets me know otherwise. They are approachable, not being frightened particularly, except with the ball or dog lands in their midst.

This was the photograph I got of them yesterday. I owe it, in part, to Linda who walked with me and Joni (and waded with us through the incoming tide that caught us unawares) as, when I hesitated as to whether to bring my camera or not, she said "you always take your camera... more »

And I had chosen the right lens, for once.

Love of the Common People - Paul Young

I love Paul Young's version of this song. Hope you enjoy it.

It would fall through the hole in your pocket and you'd lose it
In the snow on the ground..."_  (written by by  John Hurley, Ronnie. Wilkins.

More Beach Fun - Joni at 8 Months Old

Okay, here is a photograph very similar to one I posted a while ago of Joni playing on the beach, waiting for the ball.  It seems that this is a standard pose. She just loves the water and will go in it whenever we get near it, running in and out, with or without her ball and whether we go in it or not. She will drop the ball into the water and retrieve it, making a game of it.

My friend +Ursula Klepper asked if people swam off the Kingsport beach and the answer to that is yes, they do. It can be a long walk to get to water at low tide, depending on how low it is. And some of the places along the shore are better than others. The water is not particularly cold, certainly not at this time of year, and when it is coming in at high tide then as it washes over the warm sand/mud it is very pleasant.  The other side of the province, theAt... more »

The water is not particularly cold, certainly not at this time of year, and when it is coming in at high tide then as it washes over the warm sand/mud it is very pleasant.  The other side of the province, the Atlantic ocean side is bitterly cold, so cold that if you wade with bare feet the bones of your feet ache horribly. I would not dream of going swimming in it, having tried the wading bit once. That was enough for me. Steven swam in it and survived, but was rather blue when he got out. And he has lost a lot of weight since then so I am not sure that he would be able to stay in it long now. I'm sure if we took Joni there she would go in anyway. She doesn't mind the cold of winter, so I'm sure a bit of cold water would be no big deal.

Did you ever see such a happy and sandy smile on a dog?

Legs Heavy with Pollen

This bee looks almost as if he is wearing jodhpurs, his leg sacks are so packed with pollen. If you look at the centres of the flowers, you see the ones that he has stripped as they are almost white. The ones waiting for his visit are the same golden colour as he is carrying on his legs.

Check out the Wednesday Photo Themes in the New Document Format

For example, see what the mysterious #WordlessonWednesday  theme is all about and why the poster doesn't respond to comments for 24 hours....

Want to post to themes? Not sure of the curators? These documents give you text and numbers that you can copy and paste to be sure that you have it as up to date as I can make it (and as the curators inform me). Go to the About page on the +Public Calendar of Daily Photography Themes and see links to each of these documents. Have them linked into your own Drive (don't copy, just have them shared, that way they stay up to date).  Easy Peasy. :D

Enjoy
And thanks to +Janice Hackney who came up with the brilliant idea of converting these to documents (these are all linked within the calendar, of course.)

Wednesday Themes

The themes are now on publicly accessible documents, including this one, for Wednesday themes. 

Including the #wordlessonwednesday  - in the words of +Jason Jakober
"Wordless on Wednesday ~ #WordlessOnWednesday
The idea is to post an image without any words, title or description about it.  Just let the image speak for itself, let the viewer come up with his own ideas about the shot and they can mention them in the comments.

No Titles
No Descriptions
No Reply Comments for 24 hours from the poster
Just add the tag #WordlessOnWednesday (only one tag, no themes  just post whatever you want and we will do the rest)

Post your photo and sit back and let the viewer take it all in and interpret it the way they see it, how they feel it. Give it a shot, I think you just might enjoy the freedom and then you can spend your time checking out everyone else's images :-)"

Lone Aviator Over Kingsport Beach

Everyone was happily playing on the beach, fishing, swimming or wading when we walked along with Joni. The drone of this little bi-plane didn't even really break the peacefulness of the scene, in fact it almost seemed to intensify it.

Lone Aviator Over Kingsport Beach

Everyone was happily playing on the beach, fishing, swimming or wading when we walked along with Joni. The drone of this little bi-plane didn't even really break the peacefulness of the scene, in fact it almost seemed to intensify it. This typical summer Sunday beach afternoon on a hot August day could easily have looked very similar back in the 1920's

Kingsport Beach at Evening - One Man and His Dog

We have spent a lot of evenings walking on Kingsport beach, which is a not far from us. Joni loves the freedom, loves the games of ball thrown all the way down the shore and into the water.  These two look so alone against this Eastern sky at the blue hour.

I am taking photographs of +Steven Kennard in his leisure time, for a slideshow being prepared of him by a Canadian magazine. This is one I took for that project.

Don't have a lot of money to spend on gear?

But want to try out some cool hacks to get different effects (macro, tilt-shift, remote trigger, underwater photography etc.)? You could find your answers in these tips. Thanks to +David duChemin and the folks at +Craft & Vision who pointed me to these guys on +Photoventure and their crazy and useful tips.

Stone and Sand and Sea and Sky

This was a wonderfully tranquil evening for a walk along the beach. The mauve clouds and mist blended perfectly into the reflection on the calm water of the bay.

It reminds me of this beautiful poem set to music by Rose Vaughn, sung here by Rosemary Phelan and Jason LaPrade - Stone and Sand and Sea and Sky

Throw the Ball! Throw the Ball!

Is there anything more fun than playing on the beach when there is a ball with a chuck-it launcher involved and you are an almost 8 month old Border Collie? I would say not. Even though it does involve getting a mouth full of sand and a coat full of mud. Because there is always the water to jump into again to get you clean and cool. As you see, she has to sit before the ball is thrown for her. For some reason she has combined the command to sit with the one to get her to drop the ball. If she is reluctant to let it go, all you have to do is ask her to sit and she drops it and gets ready for the next throw. Then she runs like the wind after it, into the water, or along the shore. She streaks back towards us, but then does a little victory lap around to celebrate her retrieval and the joy of living.

She streaks back towards us, but then does a little victory lap around to celebrate her retrieval and the joy of living.

Joni will be 8 months old next week. She loves the beach more than anything, although as we live where the tides are the highest in the world, this needs careful planning and the use of a tide app to predict the water levels. At the highest point you can't access the beach. At the lowest you can have a long walk (30 minutes) through mud to get to the water. About 2 hours before high tide is a sweet spot, where the majority of the beach is sandy and the water is warm as it is washing in over the warm sand. But we have to keep an eye on the water level and not forget that there are places along this long stretch of beach where the inlets will fill faster. There are ladders up to the top of the cliff, but I don't fancy my chances on them. I'm sure Joni would manage just fine as she swims well and loves the water.

I must remember to tell you the story of the lost ball and share the photograph that I took to go with it. (It will be for the next time.) Meanwhile, have a great weekend and enjoy your furry friends.

Spider in her Larder

This year for the first time I have noticed these spiders on this peony plant. There have been several of them, distinctive with their red strips and white, almost translucent bodies. They are mostly to be found on the flowers like this that are white, with splashes or edges of red or pink. It's not a bad camouflage, though it makes them elusive models. The bug you see on the right is dead. From what I could see, the spider lay in wait for bugs that passed by all unawares, then she would kill them. She then stashed them between the petals of the peony. It is as if she was storing them in her food locker or larder.

I did make some macro photographs of this little lady, one of which I might share later.

Iced Tea

Shanti Tea ( +Shanti Tea ) is asking what we might suggest as a new flavour for their organic iced tea powders. We are thinking that Iced Lapsang Suchong would be an amazing drink. Drinking it would give you a feeling as if you were on a boat, with the smell of the tarry ropes and a cool drink in your hand. To send in the suggestion and maybe win a tin of the winning iced tea choice, they wanted you to share on FB or Twitter with the hashtag #amazingicedtea . So I wrote and asked them about G+. Safiya said "Sure!". So here it is Safiya!

Pushing the Buttons

+Steven Kennard is waaaay more than just a pretty face that turns wonderful creations in wood (and takes beautiful photographs). He is also an accomplished musician. Here he was playing his Bertrand Gaillard one row D melodeon, outside in our garden. 

This was taken a few years ago and I found it when searching for photographs to be made into a slideshow of him that Canadian Woodworking Magazine is preparing to feature. They wanted to have some photographs showing him relaxing and this seemed a good one to include.

Lobster Boat Collecting Traps at Sunset on the Bay of Fundy

Last weekend we were with our friends sitting on the shore of the Bay. We watched one lone lobster boat make its way across the scene in front of the setting sun, picking up its traps as it went. The bright white and blue lights on the little boat seemed to glow brighter as the scene got darker. I was reminded of a scene that my Finnish friend +Mari Luukkonen had posted the day or so before. It doesn't matter where we are in the world, such scenes speak to all of us.

Have a lovely, peaceful weekend, all!

Why Drink Organic Coffee?

As it is #coffeethursday curated by my friends +Stuart Dyckhoff +Jason Kowing +Maki Silberberg and +Sairam Sundaresan I thought I would post an interesting article explaining why it is important to drink organic coffee for our health as well as for the environment.

We love special coffees (though not the awful flavoured ones that seem so popular around here) and have two or three organic coffee (fair trade) outlets here, including one of the actual roasters and pioneer of Fair Trade practices. They will also feature speciality from small individual farms. You can even learn about the families who grow it.

Not a Dandelion (and 'Civilization' Fights Back)-146/365

I have been watching these plants with their seed heads for some time, as they were along the side of one of the paths that Joni and I take on our walks. My friend Linda and I walked it together a week or so ago and she told me that she has also been curious as to what they are.

She said that the flowers only open for a very brief period early in the morning (which was why I had never observed that ;-) ). She also said that most of the heads simply shut up and die. Only a very few turn into these large and intricate seed heads which are very similar to dandelions. But these are much larger, about 3" across. And the stems they are on are between 2 and 3 feet high.

I have no idea what they are, but I am really glad that I photographed this specimen as the other day an over enthusiastic village worker went through and mowed down all of the wild flowers and grasses next to the path, including these. So they are all gone.

'Civilization' Fights Back

The field that I photographed the other day (https://plus.google.com/105804664540125819976/posts/fd6X1K1A4ZA) has also been mown completely flat. All of the wild roses, all of the lupins, all of the tiny wild strawberry plants, the milkweed flowers  - monarch butterfly nurseries - as well as the wild blackberries have all been cut down and destroyed. I guess the village was threatened by all of this natural beauty. I could have cried. I am only glad that I caught it with my camera before this happened.

Ladybug Love / Ladybird Love

On the same walk with my friend Linda, she (without her camera) spotted this preoccupied pair. I wonder where that spider's web is leading, too, but think that it would have to be a brave spider to interrupt these two. I was particularly intrigued by the 'eye' spots.

Excellent Video Series Reduced to a Great Price

From +Craft & Vision I have purchased this amazing series of videos (over 14 hours) full of inspiring content. In case any are interested in purchasing, just go to the link. No need for a discount code. It is usually $80 and now is just $20 for them all. The quality of the material and the videos themselves is excellent and although I have only watched just one of the 10 separate videos at this point, I already feel that I have had way more than $20 of inspiration and thought provoking content. 

+David duChemin, for those who don't know him, is a photographer with down to earth practical advice and a way to help you recognise your own potential and discover your vision. I have several of his books which I love and so I knew the videos would be worth having.

Arthur's Visit to Nova Scotia-146/365

That's tropical storm Arthur, in case you wondered...

For those who are wondering what the destruction was like and why it took so long for power to be restored to so many customers in the Maritimes, I thought I should post this picture. (Again, out of order, but who cares? Not me.) There were many downed power lines and phone lines caused by the huge number of trees that fell. This translated into a loss of electricity for up to 5 days (see +Steven Kennard's post here https://plus.google.com/104584322313471697637/posts/AnJXk24VAnh for exactly what that means in this region). A good friend of ours even put his back out badly hauling water for his family from a nearby stream.

A good friend of ours even put his back out badly hauling water for his family from a nearby stream. Roads were blocked by fallen trees and the loss of telephone land-lines put at risk those people who have no mobile/cell phone coverage in their area (quite a lot near us) and the elderly or those who choose not to have such phones but might have been in need of medical attention. 

Power and the phones were restored, but in seemingly random ways. One family had the electricity restored to their house but not to the one next door. So they ran an extension cable to 'lend' electricity during the outage. Our neighbour called to offer to share his generator with us, if we needed it, to keep our fridge and freezer from thawing. People helped each other and got on with life as best they could. Now comes the cleanup. _Oh, and don't touch the red wire! ;-) This was taken the night of the storm when there was a lull.

Earth's Restorative Powers-145/365

I was walking at the edge of this field a couple of weeks ago when this rich array of wildflowers drew me to walk right into the middle of it. There were lupins of white, purple, blue and pink, white and red wild roses, and so many more flowers that I couldn't name. All of these were crawling with beautifully marked spiders, insects, tiny butterflies and bees. Now and again, underfoot, there was a crumbling bit of concrete which was the only evidence that a school, complete with large parking lot had stood there only a few short years ago.  It reminded me of the poem by Shelley, "Ozymandias" which has the line "Look on my works ye mighty and despair". (link to the poem below for those who don't know it).

The earth has such wonderful restorative powers that it quickly produces great beauty and fruitfulness in places formerly occupied by dull, ugly and heavy concrete structures. Such healing of the scars left here really touched me.

This is for my friend Levy, who tells me that she reads all of my posts and loves them, though she is not on G+ herself. Thank you for that, Levy. This is for you.

Breaking the Fall-144/365

I have got myself into a downward spiral of not publishing my photos. They might not seem 'good enough' or it might be that I don't want to show one more floral image, or I might be too tired (most frequent) or it might be too late. Whatever the reason, I knew I had to break the cycle and just upload and share. This peony, one of my favourite flowers, was resting on the path, so splendid in its unfurling pinkness, so sweet in its wonderful perfume, it too easily might have been trodden underfoot. It's just as lovely as those standing proud above it. So (for my friend Joyce) here it is. :D

Batten Down the Hatches

Not a good screen on this weather app this morning.

Even Stanfest, the biggest and oldest (I believe) music festival of the Maritimes has been cancelled, which is such a shame for organisers, musicians and festival goers alike.

Two Border Collies, a Red Frisbee and the Ocean-143/365

I'm completely out of order here, but ... hey! It's my project and I'll do what I want! :-)

Today was Joni's first day at the beach. It was hot and sunny and Aria's owner called to see if we wanted to bring her down to play with their dog (1 year old) and introduce Joni to the ocean. The tide comes in at a terrific rate here and we had to time it before high tide, when the beach disappears completely under water. We all had a great time, with the two dogs playing and swimming in the waves and rolling about in the sand. When, after only a short time, we looked up, we had become cut off from our escape route back up the beach. After soaking my shoes in wading through the shallowest part of the water, I had to scramble up onto the rocks to work my way around the shore back to the exit. Joni went through the... more »

Two Border Collies, a Red Frisbee and the Ocean-143/365

I'm completely out of order here, but ... hey! It's my project and I'll do what I want! :-)

Today was Joni's first day at the beach. It was hot and sunny and Aria's owner called to see if we wanted to bring her down to play with their dog (1 year old) and introduce Joni to the ocean. The tide comes in at a terrific rate here and we had to time it before high tide, when the beach disappears completely under water. We all had a great time, with the two dogs playing and swimming in the waves and rolling about in the sand. When, after only a short time, we looked up, we had become cut off from our escape route back up the beach. After soaking my shoes in wading through the shallowest part of the water, I had to scramble up onto the rocks to work my way around the shore back to the exit. Joni went through the shallows below (which were not too bad, just too deep for shoes) and we met up at what remained of the dry part of the beach, making our way up to the boardwalk where the cars were. 

Here you see Joni (left) with Aria on the right. Aria was obsessed with catching the Frisbee, Joni was just obsessed with having fun. And with catching Aria. I think I probably got a bit sunburned. I'll know later. :D Incidentally, there was plenty of room for us all on this beach - people and dogs. There is no overcrowding on our sandy beaches.

Thanks for all of your great comments. I will get to them as soon as I can. Life is so busy just at the moment and summer is too short to spend longer than I need to at the computer.

Call for Curator(s) to Take Over the Farm Friday Theme



#notforblog  

Call for Curator(s) to keep the Farm Friday Theme Going

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the current curators of this great theme are unable to curate it as it should be done. For this reason we are asking if there is someone who would like to take on the theme and the community that goes with it.

Please either PM myself (+Ellie Kennard ) or comment on the posting and I will get back to you by PM.

If no curator is found, both the theme and the community will become inactive, as the community is moderated by the page.

I really hope that someone can be found to keep this theme running. 
+Daily Photography Themes - please can you reshare in the hopes of attracting some interest?___Call for Curator(s) to Take Over the Farm Friday Theme

Blackberry Promise-142/365

This flower, from a wild blackberry just seems like a tiny world, so much going on, the closer you look. And this holds the promise of fruit for the summer. It's going to be a good year for them as they are everywhere in the hedges and at the edge of the woods. Plenty for the birds and us to eat and freeze.

Aquilegia (Columbine)-141/365

Sometimes you just have to get down at ground level and look up to see the best things. These hang their heads and so the only way to see them and appreciate their full beauty is to do just that. I love Aquilegia, (Granny's Bonnet, or Columbine). These grow randomly in our gardens and self-set in clusters that surprise us early each summer.

Natural, simple, clean and pure. They have very short lives, but they are so beautiful and give such joy to those who see them. Whether wild or cultivated, flowers are perfect works of art.

Google+ is Eating My Posts Again

It's rather discouraging to make posts and then find that Google+ is eating them again. Please fix this, Google. In the past I could make a comment on the image and have the post reappear. It's not working now.
#googleplusfail  

Please Google guys, can you find out what is disappearing our posts? I don't feel inclined to make any more and have them vanish into thin air. It's not the browser and it's not just that I can't see them, they are truly gone in thin air. I know it has been explained that it's just a glitch, but these glitches are getting too frequent these days.

Waiting at the Edge of the Field (6 months old)-138/365

A dog is still a puppy until about 8 months of age (when they are officially adolescent) and you can see that at 6 months Joni's ear has decided to flop into the front of her forehead once again, as she still has growing and developing to do. She is looking more adult now, though still is very slender as the breed often is. She is as intense as ever over her ball, but this time she is waiting for it to be thrown for her in the field. And behind her the field is white with dandelion seeds, making a perfect backdrop for her.  Her eyes are still striking, but this time in their intensity as she wills me to throw that ball for her. She is also learning slowly to walk on a leash with a bit of decorum. In spite of our combined best efforts at the moment it's still a bit like walking an erratic (and strong) yo-yo. But it is slowlyg... more »

Floral Flounces - 137/365

Now where was I? Mostly having busy and fun times which have kept me from the computer, but I still had my camera, waiting to post my images when I could. My computer time is limited, but I will post as I can. Enjoy your summer!

This was a photo taken last week, using the macro lens. Steven gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers (remember, always have flowers...). The macro lens makes these flower petals look like the soft silk flounces of a beautiful skirt.

Growing Pains Can Bring Tears-136/365

Last week the rain and warm temperatures brought a spurt of growth and suddenly my favourite plants and flowers are stretching their leaves and opening their blossoms. The new leaves here looked as if they were cocooned in tears as they grow.  I wish everyone a happy few days with balmy weather and the rain if you need it. As it falls on you remember how those drops look on this and know that these are the same drops that fall on you. 

The last few days have been hectic (and the next few will be, too), so I will post as I can.  I will also answer comments as I can as I really appreciate them all! :-)

Playing Ball is Hot Work

There is a very serious game being played on G+ just at the moment, started, I think, by Chrysta Rae. It's called #tonguepoker . You lot have us all scurrying to find photos of tongues in our archives. Fortunately for me, with a young active dog in the household, I didn't have to look too hard.

These are my absolute favourite tulips that we have in the garden. There are just two flowers that appear, each year. And they seem to last for weeks before dying off.

Surrounded by Trees-133/365

Our house is surrounded by trees. In the old days they understood how important this was. In the summer, the leaves, dense and green, stop the heat from getting in through the windows and keep the house cool. These leaves are a natural air conditioner, using no power, naturally filtering out the heat.  The birds find shelter in them, nest and raise their young in the branches and the evergreens and shrubs that are at the ground level.The sun filters through only when it is lower at sunrise and again at sunset, once the intense heat of the day is beginning to dissipate. In the winter, when all the leaves are off and the branches are bare, the sun's rays stream through all the big windows, warming and lighting the interior during the shorter winter days. The rooms are bright and airy. What can be better than that?
