James Honzik16,565Sharers Meta-circle III: A circle of circle sharers, centered around photography and art. This is version III, bigger and better.

Gene Bowker66,344The   #Alphabetcircles  Gene's Active Photographers on G+ circle.Part Five: First Name R-Z (the final set)Meet 490 more ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names between R and Z.Tomorrow is going to be a busy day at work, so I decided to go ahead and shoot this off tonight.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.My Selection Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+ (usually within 30 days or so)2. We circle each other (sometimes for a long time)3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4. "Safe for work" (another judgement call)Why you should follow them?1. Add active photographers to your stream without a lot of inactive accounts.2. Find some new folks to interact with who are ACTIVE on G+As always.. if you do add them.. the best way to do that is to create a new circle and that way you can watch it and decide if they fit with you or notGoogle has recently changed the circle add logic, so you can no longer search a shared circle to determine who is in it and only add people that you don't already share. This makes life harder for all of us.Not in here?1. Maybe we haven't met yet?  If so, I'd love to hear from you and I'll be sure to check out your stream. Be sure to circle me if you haven't as I check those who add me regularly.2. Maybe you don't post public? If not, there is a good chance that you looked inactive to me.3. Maybe you don't post "primarily" photography... once again that is subjective.I love it when you shareIt does take a lot of time to visit and compile the lists. I enjoy doing it but feel free to re-share the circle with your friends. That way they can find some great new photographers too.  You don't have to reshare to remain in the circle, but it is appreciated.If you follow along you can easily add 2000+ photographers to your stream too.Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images   Here are the others in the seriesPart One: A-C https://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/1KejHoGGhBzPart Two: D-Ghttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/R9GFFEnR1CmPart Three: H-Khttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/Beo3nKCJS6oPart Four: L-Qhttps://plus.google.com/u/0/+GeneBowker/posts/J2pQM7ZpBoJ (thanks Randy for catching that)Thanks again to everyone in all of the circles.

From G+ gurus as well as from people with only a few dozen followers but amazing profiles.Back to How-to-get-started...Of course, if you don't feel like creating your own circle, you can simply share the traditional way: 1. Click the share button below and share. 2. Plus one this post. 3. Comment on this post. [Will add you to my upcoming engagers circle.]Quick start steps for creating your own shared circle:Create the new circle1. In the circle below click ‘Add people.’ A popup will open where you can create a new circle.2. Type a new name for your new circle, and click the button ‘Create [name of your circle] circle.’ You will now have a new circle with the 450 people from the circle I created.

From the circle page, click the ‘Share circle’ arrow in the round circle icon. A popup opens where you can share.2. Check ‘Include yourself in shared circle.’3. Add a comment.4.

Click ‘Share.’Before you share a circle, you might want to get an idea who is actually in this circle!What's NOT in this circle:No spammers. No offensive content. No inactive people.Who I've added:- I've put a lot of time into finding interesting people. Not all 450, but lots of people who are active posters, posting a variety of topics on g+. - An even smaller [than last time] pinch of 'the usual suspects,' i.e. people active in circle sharing.- A few people who have helped me to grow my following, i.e. who have RECENTLY included me in their shared circles. Including them here is a THANK YOU for their support!AND A SPECIAL SHOUTOUT for the amazing admins of our community BLOGGERS OF GOOGLE PLUS+Julie DeNeen +elizabeth obih-frank 2014-03-04 16:51:4545012590129CC G+

Thomas Hawk6,156,0612,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 4 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.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi.  Today's , part 4 of 5, today, represents Mi-Sh.  I'll share the last remaining circle tomorrow.  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 part 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/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6f*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.2013-09-04 15:53:284915966104CC G+

Wray Post9,774I think this is only the 3rd time I have shared a circle in the (almost) 2 years.

Charles Lupica66,743          Top 1000 most followed active        photographers sharing content on G+                  Circle One: J to ZThis  is the second of two circles,  The first was shaerd on 16 May here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/103236949470535942612/posts/FPsHj9E2QEo.  The circles have been divided alphabetically to help give more exposure to people with fewer followers and shared at different times to help keep down the stream saturation. Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated. It has been two weeks since I announced my intent to update my circle of the 500 most followed photographers on G+.  I decided to do things a bit differently this time and so I'll share the top 1000.   To build the circles and the list I enlisted the aid of  +Bill Wood +Gemma Costa +Jen Baptist +Katy Houlne and +Margaret Tompkins   They built circles and vetted profiles.  My starting point for this was a list of 2000 names generously provided to me by +CircleCount. 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 13:17:2050113386127CC G+

Gailen Mapes24,796Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera L-Q - 9 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 500 members.I am now sharing one circle per day, for the reason see:https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/posts/RrPNTzHhQuHAs before these circles are photographers that I admire. They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 2nd for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 15th.)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 #handpickedcircles   #sharedcircles #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle2013-03-10 10:43:16301313CC G+

Gene Bowker45,875First Name T-ZThe #photographerstofollow  2013 #alphabetcircles Curated by +Gene Bowker So who are these folks? And why are they photographers to follow?First of all.. this circle contains a bunch of my closest friends on G+. The folks that I spend the most time "with" on here.  There are a bunch of great photographers and just as importantly "good people" here.How I decide who to circle and share:1) Active : They have posted within the last month. With the holidays a lot of folks have slowed down but these folks are still there. Yes, I visited each stream.2) Original : These photographers are sharing mostly  "THEIR OWN WORK" and their stream is mostly photography. 3) Interactive : I try to find folks who are interactive and comment on their own posts and the posts of others.4) Honestly, 99% of them circle me too. I usually figure if someone doesn't circle back, they are no longer interested in my work and I make room for someone else in my circlingThere are some names you will recognize in here for sure, but there are also some folks you probably don't know yet. Hopefully you will take some time to check them out and see if they have room in your circles.Any omissions are wholy on me too as no one asked for did anything to be included in here.I hope you'll reshare in your stream!Why?I love it when people take the time to reshare these circles.It allows my friends to be introduced to your friends.. and promotes some great photography on G+.Not in hereThere is no need to ask for inclusion.  I add folks as I come across them,  you can read more about how I select athttps://plus.google.com/111112809838472063992/posts/NeJZXLJ6oQBBe Original.

Al Nesbit3,929Colorado PhotographersSo here it is. My circle of 290 G+ Colorado Photographers. This is a general photography circle, where the people in it are Pro, Semi, and Enthusiast photographers as well as a graphic artist or two and even a recipe blogger (Hey, don't judge until after you see her food images). I've also included +Colby Brown's new +Colorado Photographers page which is being created to help connect ALL photographers in the Centennial State.Don't see yourself in the circle but want to be included? Make sure you 1) Make your stream mostly about your photography and, 2) live in Colorado. (That second one is going to be a tough one for some of you). Just leave a comment and I'll get you in there.And don't forget to share this to your stream so that we can reach your Colorado photographer friends and associates as well.2012-10-02 16:19:41290612CC G+

Just call me Spok.
I am out in the middle of some sparse population. Yet I have taken a snapshot of an electronic map that has my location and even the direction I am facing. And now I am sharing this info with the G+ world.
Not only all that but I can call Captain Kirk! (dating myself)
I love technology and how we take it for granted nowadays.
I wonder if they will make a button so I can transport myself to the Enterprise? Scotty, beam me up.

No Hunting
"A superstition is a premature explanation that over stays it's time." ~ George Iles
Weigh each comment, each suggestion, each thought for its value naught just for you. But for how it might benefit others.

Good Friday
“If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple." ~ Luke 14:26
The day Jesus died.
In Luke, Jesus is quoted saying some things that are very hard to hear. I have always believed that one's priorities should be God, family, and then finally work. In that order. But Jesus is telling us that after God, there are no more priorities.
He proved his point too. He gave up his life for you. He sacrificed his life on this world, for you! Think about that. He loves you so much, that he laid down his life.
Are we willing to do the same? Are we willing to give up all other priorities for Him? In the name of love, true love, I pray so.

Don't you hate it when someone knocks on the door and all they want is to make sure you are awake?
Here in Colorado we have the "make my day" law where you have the right to shoot someone trying to gain entrance into your home.

School District 60
In extreme north eastern Kansas, there is the most delightful hobby/tradition going on. From what I hear there is a single retired farmer that goes around and makes signs out of plow discs for old school districts and other areas of Kansas. These signs are always in rural areas and are like prize when driving around off the beaten path. It truly is a fun way to learn history of an area.
So if you venture NE Kansas take a side road (county gravel road) and see if you can learn a little about the area. Post a picture of it if you do.

Goggle.com
I have Google.com as my home page meaning that every time I open my browser, Chrome btw, Google shows me a birthday of some scientist or humanatrian that is worldly known but I have never heard of before. I never read what Google is trying to show.
Hang with me here please, change of subject here, but as a photographer and as a human being I have done everything I can think of so that power lines or telephone lines are not in the picture I am taking at the time. In fact, I have thought they were obstructing what I really wanted to see. For example, the other night I was driving home from from visiting my Father that is in the hospital. In the rear view mirror was a glorious sunset. I had to pull over. I had to get a picture. I had to create. But in my search for something to see, was this dang power/telephone line that just obstructed every point of view.
Then it struck me,... more »

A waste, is a terrible thing to mind.
You have a choice. Do you cry over spilled milk? Then why cry over death?
Of course we will feel loss. But take advantage of that loss, use it. Mourning over a loss helps no one except yourself. But taking a photo, even a snapshot, and talking about it will help the nest disappear quicker. Well, that and running over it with a lawnmower will!

Reflecting Wisdom
Who?
Remember the owl of Tootsie Roll fame? Suppose to be the wisest critter out there. I met him. He wasn't that wise. Dare I say I was wiser? I know, that is a big stretch.
I headed back to Garton Pond for some solitude the other day. When I got there, someone was trespassing! How did I know he was trespassing ? Because he was on private property. Confronted with that fact, the guy said "Oh, I must be lost."
Sheesh.

Dearfield Colorado
The name "Deerfield" was chosen for the town's name because the precious value of the land to the residents. Though mostly a ghost town now, it was designed/created as a settlement by a "black majority". In 1921 the town had reached a population of 700. (here in Colorado at that time, that was a high population)

Close the Barn Door!
This is a pix I have been working on for years. I would love more clouds in the sky for color, and I would like to take a couple steps to the left so the windmill was more visible. But if I step left even one foot, the sun hides behind the door. That's the problem aligning a celestial body with fixed doorways. Only get a couple of chances a year.
What about you? Got any pix you are working on? Anything to show?

Behind the Lens || A Fitting End

Today marks the end of a two week stay on The Big Island of Hawaii. With such diversity in Eco systems, I was able to get a wide variety of photography that I feel truly encapsulates the island (Landscape, Wildlife, Abstract, Macro, Cultural). While I won't turn down amazing light to capture that one iconic photo that some photographers like to chase, I generally prefer to photograph a variety of subjects that help to better define a place rather than just focus on a single photo that I had stuck in my head. This tends to lead to a more positive and enjoyable experience when out working in the field...at least for me :)

This photo of the gorgeous lava coast line south of Hilo represents the beauty and power of the coastal regions of The Big Island. I used a +Sony #a7r , Canon 24-70 f/2.8 plus a 105mm Circular Polarizer and 4 stop ND filter... more »

You know your day ain't going too good when at first you have to pick up some pig fat and drive through a blizzard on a curvy highway known to like pig fat.
Looks like this truck driver just lost vision of the road. They had to call in two wreckers and a tanker truck (to suck out the fat because it is flammable) to haul off this trailer.
Can you imagine being the trucker calling dispatch ... "Ah sorry, but I lost your fat."

When a cow heads off by herself away from the herd, and the tail comes up, she is ready to calf or make a pie. I prefer calves.

It is a cold and snowy day here. But just 30 miles south the calving cows (hopefully) are still dry. Nothing better than a stinking wet calf that needs medicine because his momma had an eye for a bull.

World Domination
It took me awhile but I finally figured it out. The Canadians are Invading! Yet not like one might suspect with heavy arms and tanks rolling across the border, but with a penny at a time! Their currency has become an American standard. I dare you to not find one in your pocket. Next think you know we will speaking like them with phases like "Take off, eh?" ... and with pleasant undertones. They are sneaky! Be careful around those like +Hai Vu and +Ron Clifford and Santa Clause!

Foremans Studio
I could use some help, please. Many years ago when my grandmother passed away, my father got a quilt and an album. Both of which were boxed up and quickly forgotten. We found both. But unfortunately Dad does not remember who the portraits are of.
Could you give me any ideas of where or what became of the studios? I am trying to track down the photographers for their notes. Most of the portraits were done in St. Louis by "Killion" but there other photo studios. Any ideas? Fill free to post this anyplace you think will help.
Thanks.
