Gailen Mapes61,175Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  I-K - 26 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.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 +2014-03-26 10:41:361347211CC G+

Gene Bowker66,106  #Alphabetcircles  - Gene's Active Photographers on G+ *Part One: First Name A-CMeet almost 400 ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names between A and C.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.Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+2. We circle each other3. 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 notNot 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.Feel free to reshare with your friends if you want, but there are NO requirements to be in this circle except for the criteria above.I'm slowly going through the rest of the Alphabet and as I complete each section I'll be sharing them in this series.  If you follow along you can easily add 1000+ photographers to your stream too.p.s. don't forget tomorrow is  #transporttuesday   Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images 2014-03-11 00:18:29394752593CC G+

Monochrome World6,526January 2014 Contributors Circle What an amazing month. The quality of the work shared has been exceptional, at least in my view. You do quality photography and it shows. In terms of contribution numbers it was humongous, and in terms of contributors, we beat all records. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful work. Re-share this circle if you can. It helps YOU and the theme to grow.Please remember to include in your posts, both the page and tag: +Monochrome World  #monochromeworld  This makes it easier to find your post. Also, all those included in this circle added the theme page to their circles. If you don't do that, I can't add you to the Contributors Circle.Note:1- please share your images posted to Public. If you post to communities, only community members can comment.2- So, my recommendation is this: post to Public first, then re-port to your favorite community.3- And, if you post to Extended Circles, your reach is limited and it makes difficult to re-share. So, it's been a rule for a long time: Extended Circles only-posts are not re-shared.Hope this helps clarify some issues. Thank you for your patience, and if I missed you in this circle, please let me know so I can pay more attention to your posts.Curator: +andi rivarola  #circleshare   #sharingcircles  +Circles Circles Circles +Share Your Circle +Circle Distribution +Valued Circle Shares 2014-02-04 03:06:3237613483164CC G+

Stuart Dyckhoff25,367January EngagersEveryone in this circle has directly engaged with at least one of my posts this past month. This share is my way of saying thank you again for having done so.The only way to get in my monthly engagers circle is to comment on at least one of my posts. A +1 won't do it and it doesn't matter whether I follow you back or not because for at least that month I will follow you if you comment. If you aren't normally in my circles then it's up to you to show me why you ought to remain. That could be by even more regular interaction with me or by sharing your own stuff that makes me want to engage back.Irrespective I do truly appreciate each and every comment folks make as it's this interaction that drives any social media site. Without it, we may as well not be here. Thank you, Diolch, Grazi.2014-01-31 06:53:00811517CC G+

Thomas Hawk6,146,1772500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 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.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  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 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/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OC*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.2013-09-03 18:49:364857231117CC G+

Most people would call Cranesfoot a weed, but I think it's a lovely little flower, and especially like the symmetry of the center portion which is like a tiny flower inside another tiny flower. You have to get down low to see this because they're only about 4 inches high.

Large White-Topped Sedge (Dichromena latifolia)

Hey, folks, it's #wildflowerwednesday time again! It's a busy week, but I'll get to your posts of wildflowers in their native habitat at some point in the evening. So... be sure to share only your own photos, tag #wildflowerwednesday and me, +Bette Kauffman, the curator, and tell the story of the find!

This shot is from a wonderful hike I did last spring with other native plant geeks. I found this large white-topped sedge in a small pitcher plant bog on the edge of the Kisatchie National Forest, a true treasure of west central Louisiana. I was very grateful to have on knee-high boots. Fortunately, sedge grows tall enough that I didn't need to kneel to get the shot. The white flower with its rather unusual petal arrangement amongst yellow-green pitcher plants was striking.

Untitled

For +Lauri Novak, because she sent me some b&w film a few months ago and has probably been wondering what happened to it! I put a roll in my oldie but goodie, a Pentax ME, and within a few days had discovered that the camera's shut-off switch, which was supposed to turn off the camera when you closed the film advance lever, was broken and the batteries were dead. That meant the internal light meter didn't work, so I shot "blind" and ruined some frames that way. Then it took me forever to finish the roll of film because I had to keep taking the new batteries out of the camera so they wouldn't go dead instantly. But I finally finished and sent it off for developing (my own darkroom being not set up), and it appears the film canister had leaked some light. Or maybe the camera? In any case, only a few frames are usable and I kind of like this one. Now the... more »

Wisteria (Wisteria sinensis)

Tomorrow is #wildflowerwednesday , curated by me, +Bette Kauffman. So please share your wildflowers in their natural habitat and mention me by name so I am sure to find your post. And I love to hear your stories about the plants, how you got the shot and so forth.

Wisteria is not always a "wildflower." Indeed, many people purchase it at nurseries and plant it in their yards. If you do that in the south, be prepared to keep it in check! Here in Louisiana, we have kind of a love-hate relationship with wisteria. It is beautiful, with huge clusters of flowers hanging like bunches of grapes from the vines. But it will spread rapidly and kill other stuff, including trees. It is fragrant and you will learn to move slowly when photographing it up close like this, because you will be competing with bees for this level of intimacy!

It’s not fair. Life that is. Life is not fair. So, where is God in that? I’ve had plenty of reason to think just those thoughts. Maybe you have, too. Let me share a vivid memory with you from my childhood. I was the new kid in the first grade class at Louis...

Birth Flower

Ok, so it is early April, but Lily of the Valley, my birth flower, blooms in mid-March in my front yard! Funny how I never before noticed the green dots on the tips of the petals. Most Lily of the Valley blooms hang down, but this one was graciously tipped upward to give us a peek inside.

Oldest & Biggest (Scheelea Palm)

At #GarfieldParkConservatory for #treetuesday +Tree Tuesday, curated by +Christina Lawrie, +Shannon S. Myers, +Kim Troutman, +Ralph Mendoza & +Allan Cabrera.

Here's what the plaque said about this wonderful tree:

The biggest, oldest palm in the conservatory.

If I were growing out in nature
I'd be twice this height in stature.
As it is I'm under glass
where I'm the biggest in my class.

This huge Scheelea Palm dates back to 1926, when it was sprouted from a seed collected on an exploring expedition to Brazil led by Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History. The tree has survived two major room renovations and is still growing strong.

Twisted Sister

Hey, Chicago photowalkers! Remember this stuff right inside the entrance to the conservatory? Love the colors, then and now.

Just wanted y'all to know that I purchased my opera tickets for the 2014-15 season and I'll be in Chicago in September, December and March.

First trip is September 26-28 and some time this summer I'll create a photowalk event for Saturday the 27th. In the meantime, "pencil me in," as the saying goes! And I'm hoping for warmer weather than we had this March!

Thimbleful of Light

Tomorrow is #wildflowerwednesday , and I cannot believe I am posting my reminder in the middle of the afternoon! Here's hoping this moment of sanity in my life will extend into a streak.

So... share your wildflowers tomorrow--wildflowers in their natural habitat only, please, and only your own work, please. And I love to hear the stories: how & where you got the photo, what you can tell us about the plant.

And here's minie: This lovely little violet (Viola papilionacea) was growing in a muddy pathway in the Tensas National Wildlife Refuge, located in northeastern Louisiana. Louisiana mud does not smell nice! It smells very swampy, and after getting this shot, I could smell the knees of my jeans all the way home.

The Tensas NWR is a patchwork of preserved natural areas interrupted by farms and other settlement along the... more »

Henbit (Lamium amplexicaule)

Thank you so much #wildflowerwednesday folks for your excellent contributions this week. I'm doing a "thank you" post this week because I've been so overwhelmed at work that I didn't get a reminder post done. Nevertheless, the loyal followers of #wildflowerwednesday carried on with some terrific contributions.

+Bob Danley & +Fine Art Photography by Ken Barber both specialized in toxic beauty with their photos of Columbian Monkshood and Locoweed, respectively. +Patty Hankins' photo of orange milkweed is so glorious, I'm sure the butterflies would flock to my computer screen if I were outside! :D +Eric Hunt came up with another gem I have never seen before, and he says it's probably too late for me to look for Trout Lily in Louisiana anymore this year. +Diana Boyd contributed a lovely white trillium and +Jasbir... more »

Startle Effect II

Blackbirds feeding on spilled corn at a local elevator made for a perfect subject with which experiment for one of my S P E E D shots for +Christina Lawrie's +Get Critiqued! project! The birds obligingly came right back and allowed me to startle them off the corn repeatedly until I got a shot I liked.

But even though it is rather abstract, I thought +Ellie Kennard & +Steven Kennard over at #farmfriday +Farm Friday, and +Linda Stokes & +Heath Ramsey at #ruralsaturday might enjoy it.

Milkvetch (Astralagus)

I should put a question mark above because I believe this to be milkvetch, but I am not sure. I found it last June at my university's field biology lab, a nearly 100 acre site along the Ouachita River. And I believe I was on a trail along the top of a ridge, but I didn't make notes, unfortunately. Hope to get back there soon!

It's time for #wildflowerwednesday ! Unbelievably busy these days but plan to get to your #wildflowerwednesday submissions later in the evening. Remember to share only your own work and only wildflowers in their native habitats, please.

An Emerald Bird Rises

An emerald bird rises from inside me
And now sits
Upon the Beloved's

Crown Vetch (Securigera varia)

#wildflowerwednesday is back! Sorry to be posting my reminder so late, but had a long, long day.

In June 2013, I drove a rental car from Bradley International Airport to Enders State Park in Connecticut to the Berkshire's in Western Massachusetts, where I met up with +Craig Szymanski and his family for a day of photo-hiking up and down mountains, then back Amherst for a friend's wedding and back to the airport.

Along the way, somewhere in rural Connecticut along a lovely river full of trout fishermen in chest waders, I passed ditches full of wildflowers, including lots of this one. Could not resist pulling over and wading in. Still have bunches of photos to process from that trip!

Found a blog that says these aren't native but have thrived in North America. Anyone know more about that?

So share your... more »
