Eric Raeber1,169,077I got a post from @112417919317910781482 who is in the Bay Area this coming Friday evening and was wondering what we other photographers were up to. Sounds to me like a good excuse for a photowalk, no? On that, @108104041823912324329  proposed Alviso, which is a small city at the bottom tip of the bay with a bit of a history, as well as some old buildings to prove it. Here is the map: http://goo.gl/maps/xduKL We will start from the entrance of the Marina Park at 6.30pm. Park on the street, outside the parking lot, as the gate closes at sunset. @108104041823912324329 will tell us how she found out... Alviso also has a train crossing. If the passenger train is on time, we should get trains passing by around: - 6.08pm (northbound) - 6.23pm (southbound) - 7.33pm (northbound) - 8.30pm (southbound) This is a very small town. So even if you come late, you cannot miss us! If you come early, shoot the train! Bring on your flashlight and tripod. We’ll be in for some long exposures and light painting. We’ll have dinner at a restaurant of our choice after the photowalk. It is all within walking distance. Hope to see you there for some fun walk, fun talk, and fun shootsNight photowalk in Alviso, San Jose2013-01-18 18:30:0013

Gailen Mapes78,802Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera J-L - 17 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 February 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting January 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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-02-17 11:37:24171101

Normally I'd avoid photos of myself, but my little friend is irresistible!  One of my favorite experiences from Madagascar.

Many of you have seen my Madagascar photos (album at https://plus.google.com/photos/+AlexLapidus/albums/5933913563025170673 ).  In case you haven't seen +Linda Villers', her Madagascar album is at https://plus.google.com/photos/+LindaVillers/albums/5934094655406531329?sort=1 .

Wait, You're Not a Tree...

This cute little brown-fronted lemur hopped out of the tree and landed on +Alex Lapidus's shoulder for a bit. This guy is from Lemur Island at Vakona Lodge next to Andasibe-Mantadia National Park, Madagascar. The guides bring bananas for the lemurs, so they are quite friendly. It is quite a jolt when one of them jumps out of a tree to land on you since they normally come at you from the side or the back and perch on your camera backpack! Have a wonderful week everyone...

I don't think I've posted a photo of this guy yet.  This is the nocturnal White-Footed Sportive Lemur (Lepilemur leucopus), photographed in the Berenty Reserve.  They only live in southern Madagascar, and are considered endangered due to habitat loss; at this point, their exact population is unknown.  They're protected in Berenty, and in the Andohahela National Park.

We're still accepting applications -- be sure to go to the original post!  This is a great opportunity if you've been shooting on automatic and would like to have more control over your photography.

Sign up here for the Camera Basics: Beyond Automatic 3 mentorship!


►►► Read the instructions before you sign up! ◄◄◄

This is a special program through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers designed to help you get to know your camera better and be able to move into Manual shooting mode. A group of mentors will be taking on a handful of people for a 6-week online mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!

We have assembled a very able group of quality, knowledgeable and caring photographers from the Google+ community who want to share their understanding and experience with you.


PLEASE NOTE: This is a camera BASICS workshop only, designed to help an individual past shooting on Auto mode exclusively. It will cover how to use the various manual options for DSLR cameras and some "point and shoot" cameras that have a dedicated Manual mode. Do not apply for this workshop if your camera does not have a Manual mode. 

Group size is LIMITED.

Signups will be open for several days, and are not first-come first-served.  Selections will be announced by Thursday, Feb 26th, and the first lesson post will be Saturday, Feb 28th. You will need to have the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers page circled to receive the private message, if you are selected.

Darkness

The Darkness is a paradox.  From the outside, it appears to be compact, bounded.  From the inside, there is no escape -- no spacetime path that can result in emergence -- and it is therefore endless.  From the outside, objects that fall towards the Darkness never completely disappear; as their speed grows, their fall appears to an observer to slow.  Yet within a falling object, you can be almost instantly engulfed, dissociated into the purest quantum information.  When you approach the Darkness and begin the long fall...then it must be #alienabductionfriday !

One of many fabulous images from +Adam Woodworth -- NOT MY PHOTO!  Please pay Adam a visit and check out his fabulous landscape and night sky photos.

Whaleback Lighthouse Sunrise
New Hampshire

The frigid temperatures were promising for sea smoke this morning but I think the winds were a little too high or the temps weren't cold enough to generate huge amounts of sea smoke, but it was still a beautiful sight when the sun rose over the clouds and lit up the sea smoke with a warm glow.  The temp was around 6 degrees, which is 10 or 15 degrees warmer than it has been when I've been out in the morning recently, but the winds, even a light wind at this temp, were brutal and made it feel much colder.___One of many fabulous images from +Adam Woodworth -- NOT MY PHOTO!  Please pay Adam a visit and check out his fabulous landscape and night sky photos.

The Star Bridge

Far across the galaxy, in the direction of Sagittarius but beyond the galactic core, the Nyryx have decided to reinvest in Their infrastructure.  Once limited to smaller scale Wormhole Transit Facilitators #WTF , They have decided to build the Star Bridge: a massive structure capable of transmitting entire solar systems over distances of hundreds of parsecs.  Sure, the project is taking twice as long and costing three times as much as They estimated, but, hey, They can always raise taxes on an entire Sector to foot the bill.

Here you can see Them running some early tests, with expendable stars.  I just got a quick glimpse, but They actually let +Dwayne Fuhlhage stay here for several days :-).

Beyond

A man is a very small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders. -- Lord Dunsany

Humankind has learned so much about the structure of the universe over the last 20-30 years, about its origins and history, and even about its future.  But as we look into the night sky and marvel, and as we witness human events and doings in our own tiny corner of the cosmos, we sometimes need to remind ourselves of something else we have learned: that the human mind seeks stories, and will create them to its need.

One of the funny enterprises in which people engage -- and I mean funny in every sense of the word -- is the creation and dissemination of stories that are not factual, or at least beyond factual, to fill the vast void between our actual understanding and our desire to understand.  Some of those people are scientists, offering hypotheses to bet... more »

Some of the stories are helpful in our lives, while others hold us back in various ways.  If anyone has read this far and feels like humoring me, step outside tonight -- there's not much moon, and hopefully you'll have some clear skies and can see the stars -- and let yourself marvel at how much we know about this amazing universe, and equally at how much we don't yet know.  For one night, try to set aside the stories, and simply enjoy what is.

P.S.1: How did I get to this place, standing at night on the ocean floor in the Bay of Fundy with rock formations towering over me?  I told the story in a post the morning after I took this shot, along with a different version; you can find it at https://plus.google.com/+AlexLapidus/posts/SNhPq2nEq3A .

P.S.2: I know I have a noise problem with the image.  If you look at the other version, you'll see the noise greatly reduced -- but it also really diminishes the number of stars and overall intensity of the night sky, so I thought I'd offer this one as an alternative, to feature the stars.

I thought for a change I'd de-emphasize the canals a bit to focus on the architecture.  For some reason I can't get into this album today; I hope everyone else can see it.

Awaiting Morning

We had a lovely sunset here at the Vakona Lodge in the Andasibe-Mantadia region of Madagascar.  The canoes ferry guests to an island that the hotel maintains as a preserve for a group of lemurs.  I guess the canoes spend the night on the far side so the guests don't sneak down to use them (or so that the lemurs can?  :-)  ).

High clouds starting to light up with sunset, as the fog spills over the hills and down towards the reservoir.  This is why June/July isn't really summer around here.

Part III: Raise Me Up
The Hall Beyond Time: A Saga of Alien Abduction in Three Parts

Gently, the thin, frayed edges of their seeking minds came into contact.  They learned to share their perceptions of the forces that surrounded them.  They created language, and, with language, sought to describe opportunity.

Together, they reached into the forces that bound them.  They studied, explored, expanded.  They Called.  And one day there was an Answer.
