Gorka Ortiz50,007              (¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.- JOIN THE FUN & SHARE -.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯)== NEW REVIEWED RELEASE OF "THE GATHERING CIRCLE" ==NOW I'M ALSO ADDING PEOPLE TO MY PHOTOGRAPHERS LIST ON FACEBOOK!! https://www.facebook.com/lists/852972128064411If you are a photographer and want to be added also to that list, please send me a FB friendship request:https://www.facebook.com/HaizbeltzIndicating you would like to be added to the list and your photography interests.I'd like to enhance the quality of this circle by including only profiles with a person behind. If you choose to add the circle (which is up to you as always), I want it to be a nice experience, I don't want to flood your stream with ads or spam, that is why I weekly review the circle. Should you find any Copyright Infringer at any time, please, provide proper evidence and let me know ASAP in order to remove and ban the user. We support interaction and friendship not robbery! THANK YOU GUYS for all your plusses & shares, and for being there week by week, it is highly appreciated!Would you like to be in the next one and be part of the FUN? Just follow these simple steps: 1.- Plus the post.2.- Share the post publicly in your own stream.3.- Please leave a comment so I am fully aware of your participation.4.- Please follow me.PLEASE READ:1.- I am promoting and sharing this circle in my stream so, please do the same from your side. Do not share it in your "Circle Sharing" page, use your stream.2.- In order to keep "The Gathering Circle" as "clean" as possible from spammers, aggressive business pages or profiles who don't share anything else but spam, ads or just circles please be aware that I will directly remove and block anybody asking for inclusion and meeting any of these cases:A) Your profile or page mainly has circles. I'd like to include in my circles people who, at least have something to say or post, I can't understand why a profile or page just post circles and nothing else, not a single picture, opinion or whatever, please say something, I'd like to see there's a person behind. This is a gathering between people, not circle pages.B) Your page or profile mainly has spam links to some kind of business where they you lend money or stuff like that.C) Your page or profile mainly doesn't have anything else but spam, ads or links to commercial sites.D) If you crop, modify in anyway, remove signature or upload someone else's picture as your own you will be automatically removed from my circles, banned and reported.Nobody can surf all the posts in every profile and check uploads continuously so I'd appreciate your help detecting wrongdoers in order to quickly block & remove them from my circles.Those of you helping me in this task may be included in a special circle of "Circle Moderators". People included in this special circle will automatically be added to "The Gathering Circle" promotion every week. ;-)E) People creating and selling their own stuff like their own Porcelain or Ceramic creations will still perfectly fit in the circle, I like promotingartists creating their own stuff, that is what we photographers also do anyway. I just want to keep away the spammers who flood our streams with lots of annoying ads and we all know how these profiles look like. ;-)I want this circle to be more a community, a gathering than just a bunch of people who doesn't know each other.Thank you very much indeed for your friendship and2014-08-20 10:23:21475181021CC G+

Dubie Bacino99,615Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino  (10th Edition)This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is engaging content that will enhance your Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------When it comes to #CircleSharing , my practice is to share only two of my circles every month:  - ENGAGERS: this is a way of saying thank you to those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content. If you want me to notice you, be active in one or all of my communities (see below).To connect with me -@Opajdara, the best place is my xeeme page: http://xeeme.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/ -----------------------------------------MY PAGES AND COMMUNITIES(Feel free to join if any of the topics interest you)FRIEND FILERIf you need more shared circles, check out the ones posted by +Friend Filer.

Gerard Blacklock23,700Gerry's Australian Photographers Circle Version 3Hey Aussie togs, this is a pretty big update to this circle from the last one, this time I have been more selective in the fact that inactive glus members get booted, the circle was over 600 and as such I needed to comply with 'the less than 500 requirement' hence culling was needed.Note, this is the only circle I share since I really have a interest in local content.Feel free to reshare as you see fit, the main purpose is to facilitate more engagement between local aussie togs.Please feel free to comment and let me know if you know anyone (or if you are indeed one) who is a quality, active and interesting Australian based photographer.Two great communities/themes to get involved with if you like Australia content is #photomaniaustralia +Photo Mania Australia and Australian Landscape Photography https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/1060822645285719679572014-08-13 02:56:284479320CC G+

Gailen Mapes66,819Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  T-V - 12 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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-08-12 10:29:55113317CC G+

Gorka Ortiz48,499              (¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.- JOIN THE FUN & SHARE -.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯)== NEW REVIEWED RELEASE OF "THE GATHERING CIRCLE" ==NOW I'M ALSO ADDING PEOPLE TO MY PHOTOGRAPHERS LIST ON FACEBOOK!! https://www.facebook.com/lists/852972128064411If you are a photographer and want to be added also to that list, please send me a FB friendship request:https://www.facebook.com/HaizbeltzIndicating you would like to be added to the list and your photography interests.I'd like to enhance the quality of this circle by including only profiles with a person behind. If you choose to add the circle (which is up to you as always), I want it to be a nice experience, I don't want to flood your stream with ads or spam, that is why I weekly review the circle. Should you find any Copyright Infringer at any time, please, provide proper evidence and let me know ASAP in order to remove and ban the user. We support interaction and friendship not robbery! THANK YOU GUYS for all your plusses & shares, and for being there week by week, it is highly appreciated!Would you like to be in the next one and be part of the FUN? Just follow these simple steps: 1.- Plus the post.2.- Share the post publicly in your own stream.3.- Please leave a comment so I am fully aware of your participation.4.- Please follow me.PLEASE READ:1.- I am promoting and sharing this circle in my stream so, please do the same from your side. Do not share it in your "Circle Sharing" page, use your stream.2.- In order to keep "The Gathering Circle" as "clean" as possible from spammers, aggressive business pages or profiles who don't share anything else but spam, ads or just circles please be aware that I will directly remove and block anybody asking for inclusion and meeting any of these cases:A) Your profile or page mainly has circles. I'd like to include in my circles people who, at least have something to say or post, I can't understand why a profile or page just post circles and nothing else, not a single picture, opinion or whatever, please say something, I'd like to see there's a person behind. This is a gathering between people, not circle pages.B) Your page or profile mainly has spam links to some kind of business where they you lend money or stuff like that.C) Your page or profile mainly doesn't have anything else but spam, ads or links to commercial sites.D) If you crop, modify in anyway, remove signature or upload someone else's picture as your own you will be automatically removed from my circles, banned and reported.Nobody can surf all the posts in every profile and check uploads continuously so I'd appreciate your help detecting wrongdoers in order to quickly block & remove them from my circles.Those of you helping me in this task may be included in a special circle of "Circle Moderators". People included in this special circle will automatically be added to "The Gathering Circle" promotion every week. ;-)E) People creating and selling their own stuff like their own Porcelain or Ceramic creations will still perfectly fit in the circle, I like promotingartists creating their own stuff, that is what we photographers also do anyway. I just want to keep away the spammers who flood our streams with lots of annoying ads and we all know how these profiles look like. ;-)I want this circle to be more a community, a gathering than just a bunch of people who doesn't know each other.Thank you very much indeed for your friendship and2014-07-28 08:25:4646812583161CC G+

Trumpeter swan Yellowstone These are surprisingly large birds which I photographed in mid winter on the ice near a river. A little further along we found a coyote with a wing in it's mouth. Most likely scavenged , as they normally prey on much smaller creatures. From my WILD (b&w) album.

Wattle Spring The idea of only 4 equal seasons is a euro-centric notion that doesn't apply in much of the world. Some places have three seasons one of which is 'dust'. Aboriginal  Australians often thought in terms of six seasons tied in to what food was available at each time.

Wattle Spring The idea of only 4 equal seasons is a euro-centric notion that doesn't apply in much of the world. Some places have three seasons one of which is 'dust'. Aboriginal  Australians often thought in terms of six seasons tied in to what food was available at each time. I think of wattle blooming as the herald of the local spring and today is a perfect August spring day and our acacia is blooming wonderfully after building up to it for a month or so.

In for the long haul these two monks were part group taking a few days to chant a particular text. #buddhism   #monks   #Tibet   #presence   #lovingkindness  

They were flexible and warmly gestured to me to sit in when I visited their monastery high on the Tibetan plateau. They were chanting a  chenrizi text, loving kindness, and they certainly seemed to embody that spirit.

Easy Riders - Two Tibetan men in a Plateau town directly meet the camera's gaze. #Tibet   #Presence   #livingculture  .
These towns have an amazing 'wild west' quality. Lots of bikes and horses mixing with hard worked vehicles. These men would traditionally be Yak herders, and probably still are, though many have been 'resettled'. Their dress reflects a commitment to maintaining their proud culture.The man on the right is astride his motor bike outfitted with carpets. Riding in these icy cold conditions must be bone chilling at times.

Apatani Shaman - this very old man was encouraged to pose for this image by his family when we visited their village home. He certainly gave me an intense gaze which has been made more dramatic by the lighting inside the smoky room. I am working on a photo tour to revisit this area and the wonderful Majouli island area.

While this image is more like a note for a future image, the combination of the three elements; tea caddy, tea spoon and tatami appeal to me. Of course, just like tea, they call for an attempt at perfection and naturalness. It seems simplicity is far from simple.

Intense Colour
Spent part of today walking along a trail beside these intensely coloured lakes in Fukushima Japan.
Heres what wikipedia says "Goshiki-numa (五色沼?), is a cluster of five volcanic lakes situated at the foot of Mount Bandai in the center of the lake district of Bandai-kōgen, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan.

Goshiki-numa formed when Mount Bandai erupted on July 15, 1888, destroying dozens of villages and killing approximately 500 people while creating hundreds of lakes and tarns.[1]

The eruption completely rearranged the landscape, creating the Bandai-kōgen plateau and damming local rivers. The eruption imparted mineral deposits to the Five Colored Lakes giving each of them their own delicate color, ranging from reddish green to cobalt blue.

An approximately four-kilometer walking path from Lake Bishamon, the largest of the five lakes, to Lake Hibara affords people a view of all five lakes."

Maples - Kyoto 

This time of year has new shoots on the maples that are so delicate and vibrant. I stayed quite a while yesterday, watching these two branches dancing together in the breeze and 'making shapes' as dancers do. Great to be slowed down sufficiently to be entranced by simple beauty.

Mutually Curious Laos
A tribal woman confidently returns the camera's gaze in the  Luang Namtha market. Shot on film quite a while ago. The town is also the place from which one could hire a long boat to go down the Namtha river (when the water is high enough) which was a really memorable experience. from my World Portraits album

snow and stuff ...   -  
I guess living in Western Australia make snow special for me. Some of you who have just had too much probably feel quite the opposite I realise. Still I like the simplification of shapes that the snow provides and I have discovered it's not too hard to work in snow when its well under freezing because it is so dry. Even when it is snowing while shooting you usually don't feel cold until you get back in the car (and the cold seeps through the layers) and you just brush the snow off your gear before it melts.

Warrior( 2)    Nagaland  -
A Naga elder meets the camera's gaze with strength inside his home. He wears traditional attire for an annual festival as well as his tattoos earned in battle.

I am working on a photography expedition to this area in march/april 2015. Heres the link to the mailing list for this and other trips.

Still here   - 
Just added to my monochrome Bhutan  *Reverence album* on G+, these little figures are only a few inches high and sit among an ocean of tsa-tsa's inside  a  shallow roadside cave on the way to Haa valley in  Bhutan.  The bearded figure is probably the Zhabdrung and the form of the Buddha I am afraid  I can't name.
