paula contreras10,855There are so many of us out here that have image issues and are our own worst critic.  I challenge you all to take a picture of a body part (and please keep it somewhat clean everyone) that you think is your best attribute.  Take a picture of your arms, hands, feet, knees, hips, etc. that make you feel beautiful.  If you think your whole body is beautiful that’s wonderful, just pick one part. I know you all are beautiful so get busy and shoot. You can do your shot in whatever style you want this is all about your depiction of your beauty, so try abstract, B&W, HDR, whatever tickles your fancy.  Mostly have fun and invite anyone you want.  Please add at your leisure up to the date and only one photograph please! Thank you @118149685580234696847  for so graciously letting me use your shots from last year for our banner.2nd Annual "You Are Beautiful"2015-02-22 04:00:00300  
Bette Kauffman25,926And it won't be so cold in December, right? Well, regardless, +Bette Kauffman is coming to town--God willing and some nut doesn't set fire to the infrastructure again! So it's photowalk time. Calling all Chicago and vicinity photogs. Hope you can join me. We'll gather at the Bean for the obligatory group shot there, and I want to check out what has transpired with the construction that was underway in Millenium Park last time I was there. After that, I'm easy. We can go anywhere y'all are inspired to go, including back up to this beach where Tom and I were freezing our tushes back in March 2013.It really was cold that day....2014-12-20 17:00:002  
Bette Kauffman25,926@115907986192399529711 is coming to Chicago! Will arrive some time Friday Sept. 26 and be ready for a photowalk Saturday. I have us meeting at The Bean, but if anyone has a better idea, I'm game. I'll be staying in Club Quarters Hotel in The Loop, but I'm comfortable using CTA to get about anywhere I want to go. If you can't join in until lunch time or after, we can make that work too. I'll have to head back to my hotel room by 4 p.m. to get ready for the opera. Y'all get this on your calendar, now!Chicago in September!2014-09-27 17:00:003

Bette Kauffman25,926Yes, Bette Kauffman is coming to Chicago! Opera Friday and Saturday evening, photowalk Saturday, home Sunday. Meet me at The Bean (Cloud Gate to the purists). If the weather cooperates, I plan to be out until about 4:30 p.m. If the weather is nasty (seems a real possibility this year), we'll head up to the conservatory and feast our lenses on orchids and such. Or go anywhere else protected from the elements y'all might suggest. I'm easy to please! Join me for all or part of the day. (Yes, that's @107400819855192601582 in the photo.)The Chicago-in-March photowalk is on!2014-03-08 17:00:007

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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-04-22 11:42:08152014

Debashish Samaddar33,286Engager's Show & TellIf I sent you a notification, you are in this circle.This is a circle of people who have engaged with me in the past one month (last circle was released Jan 19).First of all, thanks for all the reshares, comments and plusses. I appreciate it all. I may not be able to respond to you individually but I am aware of it and appreciate it.As you have already seen all my posts, I will just highlight a few:A nightscape of downtown Phoenix with the light rail train whizzing by, caught on film:1.https://plus.google.com/104952228420449716209/posts/TwtPAGcPxxbPortrait of a friend:https://plus.google.com/104952228420449716209/posts/GCmoA7j5CMgPortrait of a landscape (hah!):https://plus.google.com/104952228420449716209/posts/JHzWKm4EjuTA medium format film camera I have started using.

There is no requirement to reshare, but resharing will probably help you get more followers and engagement. Plusses and reshares are always appreciated.There are more engagers but I had to choose a cut off point in order to keep it manageable. I have freed up space in the circle for new entrants. I choose from the top of my "relevant list" (as defined by Google+). To me you are all relevant! But for purposes of this circle, if you engage with me more, Google+ raises your score and it becomes easier for me to see you in the list.#circleshare #circle2015-02-18 14:31:1441115897186

Gailen Mapes75,719Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera I-K - 26 of 31Note: 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-01-27 11:25:53150111

Beautiful Beautiful Birds0It is time to honor these great photographers many of whom have been shared on +Beautiful Beautiful Birds #beautifulbeautifulbirds .  This circle contains photographers both professional and amateur alike who are passionate about photography. Many are bird and wildlife photographers, although some only photograph birds and wildlife on occasion.   If you enjoy great photography, please consider adding this circle.  The photographers come from many walks of life, and from all over  the globe.   This circle is not complete, but will continue grow.  Sadly google for whatever reason will not allow more then 500 people to be shared in any one circle.  This circle was over 500 and I will need to figure out who was omitted once this is shared.  They will be the first to be placed in  the next circle that I will share.   That circle will be shared as soon as I have what I feel is a large enough circle to once again share.   Thanks for following Beautiful Beautiful Birds, and please follow those whose work make this page possible. Without their public shared this page would not be possible.Warmest Regards,+William Joers curator of +Beautiful Beautiful Birds 2015-01-08 18:34:11501848

Showy Beardtongue (Penstemon cobaea)

So... I purchased this amazing plant at the Arkansas Native Plant Society meeting last fall, but I can't remember which species of beardtongue it is. Calling +Eric Hunt to remind me! It is now blooming gloriously on my deck. I must capture some seeds and make more of these! (I'm thinking P. cobaea, but really not sure.) Thanks for the positive ID, +Eric Hunt!

Candy Root (Polygala mariana)

Too pretty to pull up, but if you do, you can eat the root! This lovely little bloom heralding #wildflowerwednesday still grows on Dove Field, a new location for me in the Vernon Parish district of the #KisatchieNationalForest . Went there last Saturday with plant nerd friends as part of a weekend hiking and counting species.

Yes, tomorrow is #wildflowerwednesday, so share your shots of wildflowers in their native habitat. Be sure to tag me, +Bette Kauffman, the curator and tell the story of the plant and the shot.

I had a great weekend and have a few hundred shots to sort through, but... I had fewer than I might because I suffered camera trouble. Yes, my trusty Pentax let me down. I have bragged on the reliability of Pentax cameras for a long time, and in all the many years I have used them, this is the first breakdown. Have no idea... more »

Open Wide!

As a kid who drank from the hose growing up on an Iowa farm, I was tempted to step into the stream and open wide! However, being older and wiser, I realized I do not know where irrigation water comes from...

Thanks to +Naturpunkt by Gina M. for this lovely photo and the information about how Austria is saving these gorgeous wildflowers.

If i had no time yet to wish you a wonderful week, i do it now with a picture of these precious wild "Iris Sibirica" flowers, which now are in full bloom at the Nature Reserve of Bangs. These flowers are under nature protection.
Last year i had missed the flowering period and the happier i was now, to spend some very happy hours there.
More information underneath.

Iris sibirica at the Nature Reserve Bangs, Vorarlberg, Austria
End of May thousands Siberian irises (Iris sibirica) transform the wet meadows of the lower reeds in a blue sea of flowers. The Siberian iris settled wet meadows, low moors and floodplains. Drainage, intensification of use and eutrophication have led in many areas of Central Europe to the decline of this attractive kind.
Siberian irises are up to 80 cm high. The delicate, blue-violet flowers are pollinated by bumblebees. Unlike the yellow flowering marsh iris leaves Siberian iris are grassy narrow. The scientific genus name "Iris" is derived from the way the Greek Rainbow Goddess.

Congrats to +Fine Art Photography by Ken Barber for finding and photographing a plant that's apparently a thousand miles from home! Fascinating plant, too, albeit a bit creepy in name and behavior.

Broomrape, species unknown

for #wildflowerwednesday  curated by +Bette Kauffman 

Saw these yesterday while eating my picnic lunch up on Sandia Mountain.  Not able to positively ID them; the species that look most like them supposedly don't occur this far west (added later:  or south), and the species that do occur here are purple, which these clearly are not.

Broomrape is a parasite with no chlorophyll.  It just attaches to the roots of something else and sucks out its nutrients.

Another shot for my "Nasty Nature" album.___Congrats to +Fine Art Photography by Ken Barber for finding and photographing a plant that's apparently a thousand miles from home! Fascinating plant, too, albeit a bit creepy in name and behavior.

Gorgeous contribution to #wildflowerwednesday by +Diana Boyd!

Blue Eyed Grass, Sisyrinchium angustifolium 
I found this little beauty in a low moist woods in Adams County, Ohio.The grass-like leaves were about a foot tall and the flowers less than a half inch wide. Although the plant is small, the flowers have all the features of the iris family, Iridaceae .

Check out the "fun facts" that go with these lovely contrabution to #wildflowerwednesday by +Ohio Prairie Nursery! For all the false indigo I've soon, I don't think I've ever seen blue blossoms!

#WildflowerWednesday! Spring blooms are in full effect around here! Both Blue False Indigo (Baptisia australis) and Ohio Spiderwort (Tradescantia ohiensis) were captured this morning looking their best!

Fun Fact #1: Blue False Indigo produces a plant juice that turns purple when exposed. It's been used as a natural dye.

Fun Fact #2: Ohio Spiderwort is truly a Spring bloom. It doesn't like hot temperatures, and by August, is very difficult to discover as above ground vegetation has dried and faded.

Green Dragon (Arisaema dracontium)

This odd little flower is here to remind all that tomorrow is #wildflowerwednesday! Actually, +Diana Boyd already kicked us off with some lovely Blue-Eyed Grass. I'm a little later than usual with my reminder, as I drove to Baton Rouge for some business at the capitol tomorrow.

But I'll be home tomorrow evening to enjoy all your contributions to #wildflowerwednesday. Please share your own shots only of wildflowers in the natural habitat, and be sure to tell the story of the shot: where, how, and what you know about the plant.

This shot is from my fist ever encounter with Green Dragon a few weeks ago hiking the Bayou Bartholomew Nature Trail along the southern edge of Pine Bluff, Ark.

Back to the WATERLINE project!

Progress!

Yes. Semester ended two weeks ago. Today I got back to the WATERLINE book and made good progress. Fixed a number of writing errors located through a careful reading of the mock-up and corrected an aspect of layout I didn't like.

Also put in formatted blank pages for what I currently plan as the remaining content of the book. See Table of Contents below.

The plan is for a book of 54 pages. Obviously, I will be able to reproduce only a small percentage of the 200+ linear feet of panels I created. That makes me a bit sad. But at 54 pages, the book will cost about $75 print-on-demand from Blurb. Plus shipping, of course.

I think that's affordable for many people, so I'm going with it, at least for now. And if I am able to buy in quantity and resell them myself, I'll be able to get a discount and sell them for a bit less. I have a plan. We'll see if it works out!

And, no, I did not find a publisher. LSU rejected. Acadiana never responded, and I can't remember who else I sent it to. Fuck 'em. The book will be done!___Back to the WATERLINE project!

So... read +John Wade's story if you need another "must visit" place for your bucket list! I know this bromeliad as "red ginger," and it is the reddest red ever.

Ilha Grande (pronounced Granje) is a small island just off the coast of Brazil and about 60 miles West of Rio. This is a wonderfully unspoilt island due, in part, to the fact that until about 20 years ago it was home to a prison for Brazil's most dangerous convicts!

It is now subject to stringent planning controls and most of the island is part of a State Park. Outside the single town of Abraio, there are no roads - just a few wider tracks and a network of trails. No motorised transport is allowed with the exception of a few emergency vehicles, a school mini-bus plus a tractor and trailer dustcart.

If you want to get around, it's either by boat or on foot. I captured this bromeliad on a rainforest trail late one morning.

I have bragged on the reliability of Pentax cameras for a long time, and in all the many years I have used them, this is the first breakdown. Have no idea what happened but the shutter quit working. Could not change the shutter speed and could not trip the shutter. (BTW, I shoot full manual.) At first it was intermittent and when it quit, after fiddling for awhile, it would start working again. Then Sunday morning, it would not work at all so I was reduced to iPhone for the last hike. Sent the camera off to DigiTech this morning. sigh___

A Hundred Ways to Kneel & Kiss the Ground #013

Dear Googly Friends:

I am having the most fabulous birthday ever! It's my 70th, which called for some special plans, so I threw a party last Saturday night with the help of a friend who is a wonderful chef and host and loves to entertain.

Only I didn't want any more stuff, so I made it a fundraiser for a local nonprofit that employees and trains and helps mentally challenged people to have a good and productive life. My generous local friends bought raffle tickets for a few pieces of my photography and bid enthusiastically on donated silent auction items. We raised over $2,000 for the nonprofit! I'm telling you, it was the most fun I've ever had at a party!

And now today I am on my annual birthday jaunt to west central Louisiana to hang out at the B&B of my botanist friend and his wife, who is right now cooking up a fabulous Chinese dinner. Other plant nerd friends are gathering and I shot this Black-Eyed Susan this afternoon!

Sharing +John Wade's serendipity and hoping a #wildflowerwednesday follower can ID it. I'm wondering, since it grew near his compost heap, if it is something that might have come from a seed in the compost. Any ideas, folks?

We have a "wild patch" around our composting bins which helps keep them out of sight and it's always a pleasure to see what nature decides to grow there. This appeared a few days ago, growing very close to the ground - never seen one before......

I did not know honeysuckle came in colors! Thanks to +Eric Hunt for this beautiful drama for #wildflowerwednesday !

Lonicera sempervirens

May's weather has been varied, interesting, and fickle.

I was scheduled to lead an enthusiastic group of Arkansas Native Plant Society members on a tour of the botanical treasures found at the Arkansas Audubon Center at Gillam Park on May 9.

The night before, with the forecast calling for a heavy line of thunderstorms rolling through at daybreak, we canceled the walk. Emails were sent and websites were updated with the news.

The thunderstorms rolled through several hours early, waking me up at 3am with their sound and light show.

I got a call from one hike participant at 9am asking if we were still going. With no rain in the region I told her I would love to meet for our 10am hike. There was always the chance someone planning on going did not see our cancellation notice(s).

The two of us spent about 90 minutes wandering around enjoying the morning. About 11:30 the rain returned and we made it back to the car just in time.

Firecracker Bush

And #wildflowerwednesday is back! And happy to be back. I finished my end of semester grading in the wee hours of Monday morning, slept a few hours then had cataract surgery in my left eye, slept a bunch more Monday and today I'm kind of like new!

And #wildflowerwednesday is back! And happy to be back. I finished my end of semester grading in the wee hours of Monday morning, slept a few hours then had cataract surgery in my left eye, slept a bunch more Monday and today I'm kind of like new!

The mother load of A. pavia is on a highly accessible 2-mile trail along Bayou Bartholomew on the south edge of Pine Bluff, Ark. This was the last outing of the spring  Arkansas Native Plant Society Meeting, only +Eric Hunt chickened out to the threat of rain! So it was me, three other ANPS members and our worthy botanist guide, Brent Baker. We barely got sprinkled on early and then had a beautiful morning.

We probably encountered the first blooming A. pavia about halfway through, and I, of course, stopped to take several photos. I then took off to catch up, only to find that the farther I went, the more blooming buckeyes I encountered. I have never seen so many in one big colony. The shafts of light coming through the canopy highlighted the blooms beautifully. You'll see more of these because I got a lot of good shots.

Share your own finds to #wildflowerwednesday tomorrow. All wildflowers in their native habitat are welcome, and I love to hear the story of the shot. Be sure to tag me, +Bette Kauffman, too.___

Kisatchie Splendors

So... I had cateract surgery this morning, left eye. Came off without a hitch, but I'm kinda laying around today. Tired, because I had to finish and upload the semester's grades before I went to bed last night! Actually, it was the wee hours of this morning...

Anyway, laying around today, I decided to make a collection. And I started with this one because I am determined to do a book about the Kisatchie when I retire in a couple more years. If you haven't notice, I em enthralled by this place and sneak a few hours there whenever I can.

And, BTW, the biggest problem I had building a collection was finding all of my posts on this subject. Hashtag searching just didn't do it! And so I still don't know if I've got them all. Is there a secret?

Showy Beardtongue (Penstemon cobaea)

So... I purchased this amazing plant at the Arkansas Native Plant Society meeting last fall, but I can't remember which species of beardtongue it is. Calling +Eric Hunt to remind me! It is now blooming gloriously on my deck. I must capture some seeds and make more of these! (I'm thinking P. cobaea, but really not sure.) Thanks for the positive ID, +Eric Hunt!

Beautiful Weed

So... I don't usually post two photos at a time and I don't usually post what I don't know what is. (Sorry, Mrs. Brock, I'll get English right some day.) But this week I'm kinda flat outta time. This is my notice, dear #wildflowerwednesday fans, that #wildflowerwednesday is taking tomorrow off. I am up to my eyeballs in grading, all of which must be done by midnight Sunday. Then.... freedom!

Now, what do I have here? I'm sure some of you will know. It's a very common weed in Louisiana. I needed one more shot for the scavenger hunt, so I left the house yesterday afternoon, drove to the edge of a field 5 minutes away, and sure enough found this lovely patch of... well, weeds, but all abloom. I photographed at least five species of wildflowers/blooming weeds, found the ladybug I was hoping for and was back home in about 40 minutes.... more »

I photographed at least five species of wildflowers/blooming weeds, found the ladybug I was hoping for and was back home in about 40 minutes.

This particular beautiful weed at an earlier stage is more yellow-green and looks for all the world to me like oatmeal coated stalks. I never before noticed how gorgeous it is when it turns bright pink. Of course, the late afternoon light was also making it glow. And I honestly don't know what it is!

Go ahead and post as you wish tomorrow. If anyone else wants to take up the curatorial reins, be my guest! I'll be back next week.___
