Wayne Marinovich26,506Wildlife Photographers CircleWell, it has been over a year since I last shared my wildlife photographers circle. I have recently been through it, and dropped some folks who no longer seems to be posting. Whilst going though all the people, I realise just how many friends I have made in this online world. I look forward to meeting more of you in the flesh someday.Please feel free to share this with your followers (that is how this works after all). If you are not on here and are a keen amateur, semi-pro or seasoned pro, let me know and I will add you.  2014-05-23 08:07:52474938CC G+

Gailen Mapes17,749Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera T-Z - 6 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 November 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 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 #circleoftheday2012-11-06 11:46:2321911310CC G+

David Waddington2,952Sharing 500 Canadians circle. This circle is bigger and I tried to change it so that it was only 500 but when you delete someone from circle it deletes them from all circles. Really weird. I will share part 2 tomorrow but I honestly don't know who of the 668 are not included.If someone can help me fix this issue it would be appreciated because I would like to be able to include everyone that I can.If you are Canadian or living in Canada and not included in this circle leave a comment and I will make sure you are added to part 2.+Amanda Blain perhaps there are some Canadians in this circle that were not in the one you shared.Oh, for those of you that haven't filled out your profile page yet it is a good idea to do so. Stating in your profile the things that interest you will increase the possibility of you being added to circles. Not everyone adds people because they are Canadian.2012-10-15 00:26:015011506CC G+

Brett Sivits2,001#shareyourcircles  I have only been on Google+ for a few months but have enjoyed it thoroughly.  I have been thinking about sharing a circle but I have resisted the hubris of pretending to know what I am talking about.  I have chosen to share a circle of Northwest Photographers (US).  These are my neighbors and I have loved watching them photograph so beautifully the people and places that someday I hope to be able photograph with even a tenth of their artistry and skill.All that being said it made me think we should all be sharing a circle once and a while. #Shareyourcircles  is your opportunity to share any of your circles great or small.  My version of #FF   in twitter speak.  I would love to see your boutique circles.  I may not be interested in Tibetan Macro Photographers but I don’t know that until I look at your circle.  Include yourself or don’t it’s just a wonderful way to tell someone that you enjoy their work enough to tell their friends about it.This is a small circle and clearly it isn’t exhaustive.   If you are a photographer or know one that I should add please let me know.  BTW if you are in the share and don’t live in the Northwest (Oregon, Washington, BC (Canada) or Alaska I am sorry but I guess I am enjoying your work anyway because you are still in the circle albeit in the wrong context. Happy Sharing 2012-09-26 13:49:37154813CC G+

Fraser Cain136,858Super Science Circle - August 2012 EditionIt's time again for the latest edition of my Super Science Circle. If your stream is stale, import this shared circle and never want for knowledge again. And if anyone ever tells you Google+ is a ghost town, point them at this circle and demand they import it.Please reshare this list, to help it spread wide and far. Do it! For Science!If you're interested in my criteria, the circle contains:1. People active on Google+2. People who often post about science.I highly recommend that you import these people into a test circle and then evaluate them over the next month. Move over the people who really delight you to a more permanent circle. Then replace the test circle next month, when I share it again.If you know anyone who should be included in this list, please let me know. #sciencesunday   #evang+  2012-08-20 19:42:04434170414583CC G+

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/about2012-07-20 11:03:342171207CC G+
David Waddington2,233I am sharing my circle for Canadians that are on Google+I try to add as many as I can. If you are not in this circle and wish to be added just make a comment. If your comment gets plus 1'd by me then you have been added. I will share this circle again at a later date with new additions.I also have a circle for users in Edmonton. If you are in Edmonton and wish to be added just note in your comment that you are in Edmonton.  I have added quite a few users from Edmonton in the last while. One thing I have noticed is many haven't filled out their profile. If you wish to have people follow you it's a good idea to fill out a profile and put it in why people might be interested in following you.Lets grow our circles!  :) #circleshare #circles #circlesharing #circleshared  2012-07-16 00:35:063512004CC G+

The photographs, having spent 440 days on the ocean floor, have been reunited with the photographer and the family. I am very happy to have facilitated the journey back to where the photographs belong! I certainly didn't anticipate the attention this created, any photographer finding my camera would do the same, right? Thanks again for the great help that came from the Google+ community. I received an email from the recipient of your help this morning:

"Again thank you so much!!! Seeing the pictures brings tears as we really had forgotten what we were missing by not having them."

Urban Coyote

I am typically up before dawn on weekends to find a little space from the rest of civilization - off into the woods or out with the canoe to enjoy the morning before the rest of the world wakes up. This morning was no exception - resulting in a brief encounter with a pair of coyotes who I imagine feel very much the same way I do (though they were almost certainly up a whole lot earlier than me). Our paths crossed, heading in opposite directions - and for a moment the three of us just stopped and watched, a little surprised at the unexpected encounter (at least I was)...

Sunrise at Brooks Point on Pender Island

This image was taken at sunrise late in Autumn 2013.  The location is beautiful, consisting of an untouched headland facing south towards the Canada/US border and the San Juan Islands.  

Shortly after I visited, the local community succeeded in purchasing the adjacent parcel of land to expand this regional park and connect it with Gower Point, protecting it from development. Considering that many of the most beautiful shoreline locations in the Gulf Islands are often purchased and subsequently developed, fenced and bordered with sign posts warding off the public (often by millionaires who spend only a few weeks a year at their 'cottage') - this is great news. Nature in locations like this should be available to everyone.

Photographic Lessons from Life Experience

I found myself on Cypress Mountain at a popular lookout over the City of Vancouver a few weeks back. It was early in the morning, just before sunrise, and the city was covered in a dense low fog - one of those rare opportunities to capture an iconic scene. The same scene thirty+ other photographers were about to capture...

This type of situation creates a conflict for me. I am aware the opportunity is rare and the scene is beautiful, however, the entire experience creating the image is not. I am standing in a crowd and competing for space (people are honestly shoulder to shoulder, huddled along a retaining wall) waiting to capture the same scene as everyone else. Perhaps I just need to have a little faith in my creative ability to produce something original - I think it's something more though.

The images that I have the greatest attachment to are those with a memorable experience behind them. Images attached to interesting stories, adventures or moments where I felt a connection with nature. Standing in a crowd waiting for the light to break is not somewhere I would choose to be to experience life - and, for me, not a place I am likely to capture an image that will have meaning or memorable attachment.

I find myself more often now in situations where the experience provides the inspiration and the opportunity for the photograph - and ultimately those are the images that are something more than just a collection aesthetic pixels.

Summit in the Clouds

Seymour Peak photographed from Second Peak in North Vancouver, BC. Look closely and you can see a hiker standing on the summit looking out at the clouds.  This was shot on a gorgeous day at the beginning of winter - shortly after a fresh snowfall we thought might be the beginning of many more - unlike the rest of North America, we haven't had much since.

Sony rx100.  2 images blended in Photoshop and further refined in Nik Silver Efex.

Ice Landing

Photographed during a rare freezing event at the Reifel bird sanctuary, situated in the Fraser River estuary south of Vancouver BC.  The deep blue behind the duck is ice, resulting in some very comical landings.  This drake is about to land and I can only imagine the thoughts running through his head - 'O god here we go again!'

Mallards are the ancestors of most breeds of domestic ducks, and so common almost everywhere the climate suits them that it's easy to forget how stunning a bird they actually are.  The brilliant green head actually has subtle tones of blue as well, when seen up close or from the correct angle.

Barred owl photographed on an early morning in Seymour Valley just outside North Vancouver.  This was one of my first successful wildlife photographs - shot with a Canon 350D and a relatively cheap 70-300mm lens.  The owl was kind enough to sit very still allowing me to use a long shutter speed in the darkened forest.  Still one of my favourites.

An answer to a timeworn debate:

Next time you're photographing a bird, listening to its song, or perhaps more intriguingly, when you find yourself responding to music - you can consider why and where it may have come from.

“Both birdsong and music elicit responses not only in brain regions associated directly with reward, but also in interconnected regions that are thought to regulate emotion. That suggests that they both may activate evolutionarily ancient mechanisms that are necessary for reproduction and survival”
Sarah Earp - Emory University research student

An Open Letter to the World:

Please read and share if you value a sustainable, healthy environment.

The current Canadian Government is systematically decimating environmental sustainability and scientific process in favour of short term non-renewable resources, passing legislation that effectively muzzles scientists and charitable organizations from participating in and ensuring informed debate and even from lobbying parliament. The importance of stopping this behaviour before serious damage becomes irreversible can't be understated. Canada, once a leader in environmental protection, is now setting a brutal standard; this, combined with our massive global footprint ensure that the consequences will certainly be felt outside our borders.

three pics were posted in the album from the SD card (photos aren't mine, so the child remained anonymous).
exif data was examined.
Kamloops Fire Rescue and Firefit were contacted.
Canon Canada was contacted re: camera serial number (reply received - no record of the serial number).
photos were dropped into google search and specific websites mentioned in the comments (no luck - nothing matching the exif serial online).
camera serial - canon eos rebel xs: 0520213746
SD card (for those who inquired): Sandisk Extreme III 20mb/s 2GB (it's not uncommon for SD cards to survive underwater - regardless of brand).

Media: please feel free to use the information posted here. I will not be providing interviews or contact information. To those who inquired re: use of my photographs and the story, and provided credit - thank you.

Original Post:

For Sale: Canon EOS 1000D
Description: only used underwater once, in the Pacific Ocean, for approximately one year.

Actual story: found off the end of a wharf in Deep Bay, BC while I was diving (completing a biological survey) in the harbour. I removed the SD card, cleaned it up, stuck it in a card reader and after being underwater in a corroding camera since August 2010 - it works! Approximately 50 pictures on the card from a family vacation.
