ShroomshotSaturday672Enjoy the all of the photos of all the people in this circle full of photographers who have shared their awesome shroomshots with #shroomshotsaturday.  If you have shared in the last month and have not been included in this circle, please let one of our curators, +Patti Colston  +Michael Albrecht +Anders Stedtlund or +Sabeena LoBello  know and we will be sure to include you in the next shared circle.Want to be included in the next circle?  Simply share your  fungi photos with us, tag +ShroomshotSaturday  #shroomshotsaturday  and all of the above curatorsWe LOVE shroomshots, but due to the increasing popularity of this theme, please only 1 photo per week.  It is becoming difficult to acknowledge and reshare all of the fabulous submissions that pour in all week long and this way,  during the seasons where shrooms are scarce, you will still have some to share :)Thank you for understanding and happy Shroomshooting :)2013-11-10 21:59:1625713512CC G+
Brittany Constable3,838You know, I haven't seen any NaNoWriMo shared circles going around yet.  Perhaps communities have made them a little redundant, but this is still one of my favorite things about the Plus, so I'm sharing away.The people in this circle have all either mentioned NaNoWriMo in posts or comments, or are in the NaNoWriMo 2013 community.  Please let me know if you:- are not in this circle and should be (this is the one time of year I'll circle anyone and everyone as long as they're doing NaNo)- are in the circle and shouldn't be- are doing NaNo, but would not like to be included in shared circlesA note about adding large circlesIn the past, I've added WriMos to both the NaNo circle and the general writers circle.  This has proven a mistake, since a lot of people who pipe up enthusiastically during November later disappear off G+, or just don't prove a good fit for my stream, and it leaves me spending a lot of time doing circle maintenance.So what I'm doing this year, and what I'd recommend others do as well, is add new people only to this circle (if they're not already in other circles) and keep the volume turned all the way down.  Then you can go to the separate stream and check people out, adding only the people you want to keep around to other circles. In a couple of months you can empty out the NaNo circle and clear out all the people who didn't make the cut.2013-10-23 17:06:17401404CC G+
Sean Cowen43,829My Morning Circle: By Far, The Most Interesting and Unusual Circle I've Ever Created...In the beginning of October, I asked people to dig down deep and give me names of great people to add to a must-read morning circle. ( http://bit.ly/16ow9Cm ) This is the FIRST CIRCLE of those names. I have omitted a few names by my own prerogative and I've left off PAGE names as I'd like to create a separate circle for those. By and large, though, this list is the result of all the recommendations I received. There are more names to follow, as I'm still working down through the comments...What I Originally Asked of Anyone Leaving Comments and Recommendations...I'm looking for a SINGLE CIRCLE of pure awesomeness - a circle that gives me incredible content, insight, analysis, humor, a dose of the erudite, funny, sad, melancholy, happy - in short - I'm looking for one circle to throw into my stream that gets my days started off on the right foot.But I need your input. Who should I add to this circle?We all know the usual suspects (and some of those people will definitely be included if you recommend them), but I am seeking and searching for those little mentioned and possibly unknown to me people who will jump start my day.I'm not looking for popularity or anything specific - just let me know about the people you would include if you were creating this same circle. #circle   #coolcircle   #recommendedcircle   #circleoftheday  P.S. Added myself against my better judgement as I was chosen on this list as well. Now you know... :-)2013-10-20 15:53:26499613067CC G+

Georges Pauly14,521Thomas HawkShared publicly  -  30 Aug 2013 2500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 2 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Yesterday I shared last name A-Da.  This one , part 2 of 5, today, represents Da-Ho.  I'll share the remaining three next week.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 3, 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpn*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of domain errors.  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-01 19:56:06482204CC G+

Mz Maau10,204I rarely share circles, and I regret to inform, this is not the promised #CircleDirk , rather, it's a circle I've been semi-maintaining since last spring, when it was created for +Pierce Arner to jump-start his Plus experience.Today, I'm resharing the current version on behalf of +Søren Dalsgaard Brath, who, like Pierce, is looking for new content for his stream.I figure he and I probably have a chunk of overlap, so I've added a few extras he might not yet know about.Some notes about the curation of this circle:I've tried to set aside those who have not posted recently, and I've tried to only include those who post publicly, or to extended circles.  I may have missed a few, and if you're in this circle and would like to be permanently removed, please let me know.This is not the final version, as I'm not sure such a thing is possible.This circle DOES come with a warning:You will, most likely, NOT enjoy everyone in this circle.  I, like many, have eclectic tastes, and I'm still a bit gun-shy after seeing some of the explosions from last year's crossing of the streams, so PLEASE, edit this circle to your liking with that in mind.If I ping you, you're in the circle.  There is no expectation or requirement to add this circle, it's merely a courtesy ping.  Again, if you would like to be removed from any future circle shares, please let me know.And yes, I promise, I'm still working on the #CircleDirk .Also note:  This is NOT an indication of who I like best, though some are included in this circle.  It is simply meant to be a sample of the diversity I follow.#PinkAndFluffyPersonsOfQuestionableRepute2013-06-22 16:38:09164143576CC G+

paula contreras2,511The BestBeen on G+ for about a year now and have met some of the most amazing people.  Photographers, Story Tellers, and now some of them friends.Well I don't usually do this, in fact other than sharing a single person at a time, I have never shared a circle.  High time I did and just wanted especially those just starting out on G+ to have a glimpse of some of the best.The best you say, yes the best.My circle count consists mostly of photographers and I am pretty picky about who I circle, but there are a couple of people in this list who are just awesome and appreciate photography so much that you will definitely get shared a lot if nothing else.  These people are also the ones that interact on G+ the most, so if you want content in your stream, than here ya go.So take a look, take the whole circle or just peruse through and find your best peopleShow less2013-06-10 20:31:3220057319CC G+

Jennifer Bailey1,873,208This began as a relevancy circle - and Google+ has a ton of use and info on my habits so actually it's very accurate.  But I kept moving down my circles and picking people to add - people who might be new to me but who I have had a wonderful time engaging with them.  Some of these people only post rarely, some of them post a ton :)  I follow Historians, Photographers, Artists, Thinkers and Rebels.  Some of their posts might shock you.  Some of their posts will delight you.  Some of the people I added merely because I know them from engaging wildly well on my own threads and have come to know and like them that way.142 people - some I know personally - some I just know here through this medium.  But I am the better for it.2013-05-20 22:21:0014262563CC G+

Stephanie Calahan842FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 2 of 4My goal was to crowdsource a list of Fabulous Woman on G+ that are Actively posting and Engaging on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and #Gratitude, I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1311 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmWhat You Can Do Now------------------------------------* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+ #womenongplus #womenonline #womenongoogleplus #women #activeusers #activedirectory #activeengagers #fabfems #googleplusengagers #femalesongoogleplus #female 2013-05-09 17:30:57362381135CC G+

I know a lot of y'all are familiar with the SCAR Project (http://www.thescarproject.org/) and the work David Jay has done to portray the humanity of breast cancer survivors - which is the ultimate goal: These are people and deserve to be treated as such.

Anyway, David has the opportunity to bring his works to Santa Monica (CA) and do a show there, but could use some help.  He's $8K short of his goal, but if we all pitch in a little, and spread the word, I know we can meet that in a couple of days.  You've seen the shared posts, and I know many have been deeply touched by them.  Consider this a chance to make it real for those that haven't.  I know I wish I could make it down for the opening.

So give what you can, and tell your friends, please.

Pay attention, kiddo

So I'm driving my son home from school, and I tell him that Dallas (the cat) doesn't have diabetes. He doesn't respond, so I glance at him and see he's looking at his phone. So I say, "And the alligators are getting completely out of hand."

Beat.

Him, "What?!"

Heehee.

I pasted the story I'm writing into I Write Like and got Neil Gaiman. I kind of like that. It also suggests to me that the story might have dark elements (not my normal direction, though I've done it). Well, better that than talking animals, that's for sure.

WARNING: (Very small) Dog on Duty!

So much foul language (implied).

So I pick up my computer this morning and find that google won't do anything (gmail, calendar, G+ tabs). Swearing. So I try to close firefox and after two minutes decide it ain't gonna quit (swearing), so I forced it closed. I decided to restart my computer, and then saw I had updates to do, so I started them. 20 minutes later, 4 updates failed. Potty mouth. Re-tried the updates and they work. Good. So then I open up firefox and find that not only are my tabs gone, but also my pinned tabs. More swearing. Go to USPS to print a couple labels and the first address I grab from my address book for some reason doesn't have the state. Mystified swearing. Go to find the address spreadsheet. Nope, not that folder. Nope, not that file. Or that file. Swearing starts to get creative. Finally get the state and find that USPS has changed their site and am... more »

Storm Damage

That soaking was the final straw for a weakened branch of our Silk Tree. The sawed off branch you see pointing downwards was cut off because it was crawling onto the roof of our patio overhang. The poor woodpeckers will have to find a new summer home this year.

The good news is that removing this branch will help the health of the rest of the tree.

I'm still alive, Pluskians. I've just been having a hard time (physically) and spending a lot of time just reading. I haven't had the energy to be creative, which is unfortunate in an artist. But I'll get my groove back eventually, fear not! And I'm in a good place spiritually and emotionally, so I've got that going for me, which is good. =P

Revisiting

I wasn't really feeling it the day I took this photo and the way I processed it at the time kind of showed that. I ran across that old thang (March this year) today and my eyes popped open! I thought, Wow, that's cool, but it could be so much cooler!

So here it is, my 100mm view from behind the Ferry Building in SF. ;)

All is Well

I just had to pick up my camera (as it was right next to me) and try to shoot this lovely scene.

I ordinarily don't discuss camera settings, but for some reason I feel moved to at this time. =P My living room is never well lit, so I cranked the ISO up to 1100 (thus the graininess), and the exposure time down to 60, which is about as low as I can go without a tripod and have a prayer of a picture without motion blur... and that's before the critters move!! And, of course, significant tweaking in post to overcome the underexposed result of all of the above.

Well, I got lucky and got a few pix for ya. It's so rare that I can catch the critters together on camera, even though it's not unusual to see them that way. The problem is that even if my camera is within reach, card and battery in it, they notice me and Bob the Cat will almost never stay... more »

The birth of a Warm (and coupon!)

You've probably heard of putting a cup of uncooked rice into a sock, tying it off, and putting it in the microwave for 30 second intervals until it's warm but not hot. Of course, you have.

But one day I thought, this warmth is nice, but this sock isn't very cuddly! So I went and raided the remnant shelf at the fabric store and came home with (among other things) a soft orange fabric, like a thin fleece. The first one was sewn by hand, simply because my sewing machine was in a box. But the result was amazing! I loved my soft new Warm. I petted it and hugged it and named it George.

Having made the discovery that warmth and snuggliness could go together, I founded this shop.

Languages are funny

If a person is cool, you want to hang out with them
If they are cold, they are unappealing
If they are warm, you think of their heart and kindness
If they are hot, you think of their physical attractiveness

So I'm not doing a Black Friday sale, and it's doubtful I'll do anything for Cyber Monday (but we'll see).

Instead, I'm giving away this signed, framed photo of San Francisco's Cliff House that I shot earlier this year.  The contest starts now, and goes until Sunday evening.

A larger version of this photo can be seen here - https://plus.google.com/photos/+OlavFolland/albums/posts/5835721328435428690?pid=5835721328435428690&oid=113330053950020592701

To enter:

First, this contest is not limited to the US, but I have doubts as to how well a glass frame will fare internationally.  We won't know until we try, right?  I've shipped plenty of prints overseas, just not framed.

Second, there is only one way to enter.  You must comment in this thread, and equally importantly say something about wanting it. &qu... more »

Babby is Born, But Photoshoots Are Forever

I am not a portrait photographer, but when my good friend +Julie Kowing decided she wanted some belly pix, I jumped all over it! Pregnancy is such a beautiful time, and so ephemeral. I can take my macro lens out on any given day and probably find a good subject, but pregnant women willing to pose for my camera are not exactly behind every bush (although that might be how they got that way! heehee).
