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 19:56:06482204

I have had to split some circles because they exceeded 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 August 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 1st.)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/about2012-08-22 10:52:18254406

Grayson Hartman22,725BIG THANKS TO ALL +Fire Friday CONTRIBUTORS!CIRCLE SHARE OF THE FIRST 503 CONTRIBUTORS TO #FIREFRIDAY Since nearly the beginning of Daily Photography Themes (DPT) on G+, FireFriday has been a place for people to share photographs of anything fire related.  I've had the pleasure of meeting some great people through this DPT and have been absolutely inspired by you all.  I've enjoyed the different takes on the subject and continue to look forward to more of your outstanding contributions to FireFriday.  Also, due to the limit of 500 in a circle-share, the pages +Wandering Shutterbug and +Prometheus Imaging were left out of the circle unfortunately, but your contributions are no less appreciated.  It was the only way I could share the whole circle.Fire Friday:  Anything fire goes-from a wildfire, to a tip of a match shot macro, to even smoke from a fire, fire houses, fire hydrants and fire hoses.

Michael Earley12,869Great week and again this week bumper crop of new talent and posts. From incredible  shots of naked jet engines to goats in a trolley, they ran the gambit. Awesome work across the board. We are starting a few new things this week. +Gene Bowker added his pick of the week and next week more of the curators will be doing the same. Check out the #transporttuesday or genes feed to see who he picked. Next week we are tweaking the theme a little to a No Motors week. see what you can come up with. I would like to thank you all for posting and +Gene Bowker +Steve Boyko +Joe Paul and myself +Michael Earley thank you for all your submissions, comments, shares and re-shares of some really great work. Please click the little curved arrow down below and share this circle so more folks can enjoy this work.  Sorry for the omission of a few folks as we can only share 500 at a time.2012-08-01 17:27:245008922
Ryan Lynham11,576Still having trouble finding G+ to be an active photography community?This is a list of the major players in my photography circles. Add this puppy and I think you'll solve your problem. In fact you might be overwhelmed and wish you had only added a few from it, which is another good idea, depending on your sitch, and what not.The standard circle share spiel: If you want to be in this circle and you aren't, then start sharing good photography and participating. Interaction on my posts / posts of people I follow helps, too. Easy peasy. Please don't ask me to add you. Thanks!Cc-ing +Darren LoPrinzi, who was looking for some good folks to follow. : )2012-07-30 18:23:5920234010
Gailen Mapes12,625Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera G-K - 8 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. I have had to split some circles because they exceeded 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 July 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published July 1.)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/about2012-07-22 11:11:22256116
Scott Detweiler22,344This is my top circle for inspiration.A few words on this circle:- These are people that inspire ME, and may not do the same for you.- Not all of them are photographers, there are artists, re-sharers, and others.- I don't limit people by how many followers they may or may not have, as I don't care.Photographers I enjoy may not inspire me and my work, so they won't be in here.  I do have circles for my favorite photographers and so on, but they may not be an inspiration for my projects.If you want to get in on this circle you need to have a profile that isn't blank and examples of work you think I will find inspiring.If you like this circle, feel free to share it.  I am sharing it because these people rock and hopefully will inspire others.  If you are in this circle, it would be kind of you to share it as well.Enjoy!2012-07-14 18:15:2236829817
Jeff Sullivan131,363Daily Photography Themes on G+: Curators Circle v1.0Daily photo themes can be a great way to share your best work, or to find creative work by others for enjoyment and inspiration.Lists of the daily themes, with notes on any participation details, are maintained by the following people:+Eric Leslie - http://ericleslie.com/guides/daily-photography-themes-googleplus/+Kol Tregaskes - http://bit.ly/kolgplusphotodailyhashtags+Ray Bilcliff - http://www.trueportraits.com/daily-photo-themes.htmJust Include the theme like today's #SelflessSunday in the text of your post, and others can find it in searches and you can enter that tag in the search box at the top of the page to find photos by other contributors.  However, that only works if many people using a theme are looking at (and commenting on) each others' posts.  On G+, like in so many areas in life, you get what you give.I've created two circles: one containing theme pages and this one containing theme curators.  Theme curators are among the most active photographers (or photography lovers) on G+, but if they're actively curating their theme, visiting most or all posts and interacting with many (comments, +1s, shares), they're also among the busiest, especially as the G+ community grows.  Keep your expectations of them reasonable and you won't be disappointed.  The golden rule, karma, "what goes around comes around"... take responsibility and be the interaction you want to see.  As people come to recognize your comments and posts, you'll get to know people and develop circles of community members to interact with on G+.This is intended to be a comprehensive, inclusive circle, so if I've missed a theme curator please let me know, thanks!2012-07-08 15:27:4433222730

I mean, you've seen circles for "Most interactive photographers", The Kick Ass Photographers", "The Inspirational Photographers", "The best Nature and Wildlife Photographers", and the list goes on.This post contains a list and a circle. The circle contains the 500 most followed photographers with less than 60'000 followers.  The list is a list of photographers that have more than 60'000 followers.  Most people on the list have over 1 million followers because they are on the G+ list of suggested users (commonly referred to as the SUL).  But who are the most followed ? Here is an updated version of a circle  I shared a few months back. I have tried to find all of the top photographers and add them to this circle. Obviously the last 50 places probably change daily so this is the list as I checked it before sharing. The number of followers needed to be on the list has changed a lot over the last 4 months.  Back in February you needed  13'117 followers, in mid-June that number is around 17'200. Why is this circle of interest ? Well, because it wasn't chosen by me or any other individual. It was chosen by the G+ community. Some of the people in the circle are great photographers, some are great at being interactive, some are just plain good at marketing themselves, and many have a combination of the above. But, in the end, the G+ community has chosen them as the top 550 photographers to follow.• Why is xxxx not on the list ?  Photographers that haven't been active on G+ for more than 6 weeks weren't included.  Several photographers that only post sporadically and generally less than one post a month aren't included• If you find someone on the list that you don't really think is a photographer, send me an email and / or a private post and I'll look into removing them or leave a comment below.• If you know of someone that I missed that has more than 17'200 followers, let me know and I'll add them to the list for next time.• You could call this the User's Choice Award circle because people on G+ have chosen to follow the people in this list and circle. Why share this circle ? Photographers were among the first people to embrace G+. Over the last few months I have seen photographers add significant numbers of followers and fall in over all standings. Wordy people and celebrities are overtaking photographers. +Trey Ratcliff +Thomas Hawk and +Lisa Bettany are the only photographer2012-06-14 13:42:29500244215241
Elizabeth Hahn19,891With the anniversary of G+ just a couple weeks away, I went through all the people in my circles, and made one just for people I've HIRL'd with.  This is a circle of 200 that with the exception of one person, I didn't even knew existed a year ago.  (the one person was one of the most recent I have met, too).  If I've forgotten you, please send me a message!!!!!  I've gone through my circles a few times trying to catch everyone.. but I still probably missed someone.I didn't follow any blogs, I didn't follow photographers on that other social network, I pretty much shot on my own.  In the last year I've been on more photowalks than I can count.  (I would guess over 40, but I haven't sat down and really counted).  Some of the folks I've just shook their hand and said hello, other's I've spent days in the desert, mountains and beaches of California with.  There are people from at least 4 different countries, pro photographers, casual hobby photographers, but they all have enough passion for it to get out and share their love of it with others.  While much photography, especially landscape photography is done alone, it also can be a really fun group sport.Add the circle if you wish, pass if you don't.  I just wanted to say thanks to everyone here for changing my view of photography, and help me learn so much in the last year.  You all rock!!!!!2012-06-12 22:22:15200102119

I often talk about what it means to me to curate a theme and how I view things. To me, the best themes are the ones that have highly interactive curators. The vast majority also have a page to compliment their theme. A theme page is a great place for the curators to share information about the theme and to list the name or names of the people currently curating the theme. IMHO, a good theme page should provide information about the theme, how to participate, and who is curating the theme.There are many themes that were created and then abandoned by their creator so I wanted to know, "Which themes rock?". I asked the G+ community to tell me which themes have highly interactive curators and an active community. This circle is based on community feedback and my personal view of what it means to have a theme that rocks.A good place to start if you are new to themes is perhaps the about page of +Monochrome Monday or the about page of +Daily Fine Art Themes.  This circle is part of an ongoing series and will eventually include, "Charles Lupica's guide to themes on G+™".*If there are any themes that you feel rock that aren't mentioned, be sure to add a comment to this post, include the name of the theme, what day of the week the theme takes place or daily, the name of the page, and the name of the curators.  If there is no page, please state this.  Themes without a page are less likely to be listed but some very interactive themes don't have a page.* *Because of the limitation put on posts by Google Plus, the curator names will not be hot linked nor will the page names.  Sorry if this causes an inconvenience but only 100 links can be put into a post and this one contains close to 300.* Let's rock.Sunday• Dawn on Sunday  #dawnOnSunday  +Dawn On Sunday  +Ray Bilcliff +Sherry McBriar • Sacred Sunday  #sacredSunday  +SacredSunday™  +Charles Lupica +Manfred Berndtgen +Margaret Tompkins +Robyn Morrison +Sherrie von Sternberg  • Selfless Sunday  #selflessSunday +#SelflessSunday Theme on G+    +Jeffrey Sullivan • Sentimental Sunday  #sentimentalSunday +Sentimental Sunday Theme   +Louisa Catharine Forsyth• Sign Sunday  #signSunday +Sign Sunday +Jonathan Davis +Lori Carey • Sky Sunday  #SkySunday +Sky Sunday - Photography Theme  +Randy Scherkenbach +Patrick Scherkenbach • *Zen Sunday*   #zenSunday +Zen Sunday +Charlotte Therese Björnström +Simon Kitcher +Nathan Wirth  ────────Monday• Backyard Birding Monday  #backyardBirdingMonday +Backyard Birding Monday #BackyardbirdingMonday   +Celeste Odono +Ricky L Jones• DOF Monday (Depth of Field)  #DOFMonday +DOFMonday +Mara Acoma +L2012-06-06 17:32:51260927778

58th Butte Fire Academy
I dropped off the face of the earth and lost some followers, but I've been super busy and haven't picked up my camera in so long!  To my friends who I haven't seen in a while I hope to catch up on your work and get posting here again soon.  I've spent the last 19 weeks studying Fire and EMT at the Butte Fire Academy at Butte College, Oroville, CA.  This video was made by a friend and fellow Cadet +Alberto Olmos and shows a bit of the program out on the Training Grounds which accounted for 40% of the academy.  The other 60% of the academy was 7 hrs a day of classroom lecture and testing requiring a passing grade of 80% or better.  I think this video sums it up really well and the BEST video I've seen of the academy.  Enjoy and let's catch up soon!

CIRCLE SHARE OF THE FIRST 503 CONTRIBUTORS TO #FIREFRIDAY
Since nearly the beginning of Daily Photography Themes (DPT) on G+, FireFriday has been a place for people to share photographs of anything fire related.  I've had the pleasure of meeting some great people through this DPT and have been absolutely inspired by you all.  I've enjoyed the different takes on the subject and continue to look forward to more of your outstanding contributions to FireFriday.  
Also, due to the limit of 500 in a circle-share, the pages +Wandering Shutterbug and +Prometheus Imaging were left out of the circle unfortunately, but your contributions are no less appreciated.  It was the only way I could share the whole circle.

Wildfire captured in it's truest form: Wild

#FireFriday  curated by +Grayson Hartman

Here's a photo taken during a wildfire in northern California along the infamous HWY 70 corridor along the Feather River, specifically a ridge that spurs from Red Hill.  
The early morning rays of sunlight pierce the smoke as embers drop from the sky. The flames grow outward in a perfect circle until they all converge into one.  It was an amazing site to see.  
In the end, it was a two day firefight that started off of the highway by the river at 2500' and ended at the communication towers at the peak at 6300' elevation.  This photo is the morning of day two, when a crewmember woke the captain and said, "there's a crackling sound and I think it's fire."  Captain replied: "It's probably just a bear," and rolls over.  We were packed up anddiggin... more »

This one goes out to the power of every crewmember, no matter what the team.
Have a great weekend and if you're next to a campfire take some photos!

a rare glimpse and a happy ending
During the late summer/ early fall the Northern California fire season comes to roaring heights. This picture comes from the burning operations of multiple wildland firefighting crews over the course of three days and nights. This burn-out operation was attributed to saving the town of Hayfork, CA from the impending firefront.

Another great #firefriday contribution from +Lori Hibbett !

This was taken after sunset at the TRE fire we had about a week ago. This is for +Grayson Hartman and his #firefriday daily photography theme. This area has been hit pretty hard by wildfires over the past year. Not much tinder left to burn so they are probably on the safe side for about 20+ years now.___Another great #firefriday contribution from +Lori Hibbett !

Sharing my Drinks on Fire shot that was made for +Chrysta Rae's Photography Scavenger Hunt this past March. It was a blast to make, as it involved lighting Bacardi 151 on fire in the living room on a large mirror. Though this is a composite image of the best flame captures in multiple shots, the colors and reflections are true to life.

.. and a reminder today is #firefriday curated by +Grayson Hartman (me) :) Have a great weekend!

I like this Chrome extension for the desktop. Thanks, +Cem İnceçınar!

via +Alan Shapiro

This chrome extension i just wrote is removes the height limit of the images on google+ stream. Also eliminate the #blackspace around the images. +Vic Gundotra should see this, also #whitespace stream people who have some design complaints. The result is really sweet. Im sure everyone related #photography will like this.

+Alex Leonard and +Alan Shapiro probably love that. Open the ideas for make it better. Please rate and share if you like it.___I like this Chrome extension for the desktop. Thanks, +Cem İnceçınar!

* #FireFriday * - An extreme "catface"
It's that time again - Share your images of Fire. Anything fire goes - from a wildfire, to a tip of a match shot macro, to even smoke from a fire, fire houses, and fire hoses. Fire People! Please tag my name so I'll see them.

About this photo: Taken in '07, this is an extreme case of a catface - a fire scar at the base of a tree. Thought too dangerous to cut, wood was placed inside to make the fire larger in hopes to have it fall on it's own. Very often trees can withstand large catfaces and survive, but this was too big. The day was getting long and it hadn't fallen yet so .. a little nip in the back with a chainsaw and it's down, safe to work around, and no longer a threat to the crews and the control of the wildfire. Hope you enjoy a little slice of my past life and don't mind me sharing these :)

Toad Chaser and Father

In the midst of Chrysta Rae's March Scavenger Hunt - which is now completed (http://goo.gl/9KSfc) - I still couldn't let a possibly epic sunset get away. I rushed to the park to watch it unfold. The sun dipped below a bank of clouds and the light never came. Switch to Plan B - silhouettes on the lake. I didn't have time to set up a tripod so I cranked up the ISO and shot this handheld f/5.6 at 1/200th, 150mm.
Looking forward to seeing all the Scavenger Hunt photos!

On the flip side, it's really sad when you find out someone who had you circled, uncircled you.

To those who've circled me back, thank you!

Blue Door
Island of Capri, Italy

You've maybe seen a few other posts from me about Capri, but it's because it was such a beautiful day when I was there last year. There's a system of fortifications on the rugged and isolated parts of the Island to protect the military quarters at the rear from enemy attack.

I didn't find any info on this particular structure, but believe it's probably part of the fortification system, high on top of Monte Solaro.

Fire Friday #firefriday
June 21st, 2008. 2000+ fires later
21 days after the June 21st lightning bust we returned to our training room to find it was exactly how we left it - books open, pens out, half drank bottles of water. It was an experience I will never forget. 3 days later we were back in the same spot. This time the fire we were working (~800 acres, 1 crew of 21 people in the wilderness) grew together with a handful of other fires to create 1 fire, I believe they called it the Yellow Fire. We looked across the Cottonwood Creek drainage into the Shasta-Trinity National Forest at a 1 blade dozer line that stretched from top to bottom. It was a dozer line from hell. Within days we found ourselves burning off that dozer line. It took 3 days with winds in our face and heavy air support helping with spot fires and slop-overs. All in all, it was 78 consecutive paid days with only 7 days off.... more »

The first day of summer 2008, June 21st, set off a summer to remember, as I expect +Grayson Hartman remembers. Starting the previous day in the Coastal Range, dry lightning busts lit up California to the tune of over 2000 fires. End of June thru July I could barely see, ....or breath. First shot is from ~Paradise, CA northwards, and the second shot is from around Oregon Peak northwards to the S. and Middle Fork Feather River confluence. Also I'll throw in a sunset shot from that fateful first day of summer. For #firefriday by +Grayson Hartman , a reminder for #forestfriday by +Rudolf Vlček & for #stormyfriday by +Reinhard Latzke
