Gailen Mapes67,153Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  IL-M - 27 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 August 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting July 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 +2014-08-27 09:46:42179000CC G+

Gorka Ortiz50,026              (¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.- 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 10:23:2147511691129CC G+

Dubie Bacino99,863ENGAGERS CIRCLE - Curated by +Dubie Bacino (10th Edition)This is a circle of truly amazing and creative individuals. Most people are the ones I've been interacting with for years here and on other social networks, mixed in with some new friends I've made recently. All people here are very active on Google+ and worth adding to your circles. They come from different countries and backgrounds, some of them are bloggers and social media professionals, others are artists, musicians, writers, photographers… They are not a shy group by any means. All you have to do is reach out and most of them will reciprocate the engagement. 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.  If what you are looking for is to grow your audience, expand your reach on Google+ and connect with people on other social networks, I also recommend joining their community at http://bit.ly/1f6AUpH.MOON PHOTOGRAPHYTake a look at +Moonipulations, it's the place for all Moon lovers.

Red Tailed Hawk

I was looking to see if the mail had arrived this morning and I found a visitor in my driveway.  Photo taken through the front door glass - I could tell it wasn't going to hang around long!  I got 4 shots off and he flew off to a tree across the street.

#albumshare   #albumreshare   #snapsfordyllon  & #helpfordyllon  

I have been thinking for a while about this project.  I goes like this:

I've been around here since pretty much the beginning and I have a whole bunch of pictures in various albums.  I'm sure that there are a lot of others in the same situation.  

Some of those albums haven't seen a lot of traffic lately.  Not because they are bad or really old, but because they are so far down in the pile that nobody visits them anymore.

So let's share them again.  I invite you to take a look through these albums, and if you like the pictures, hit that old "+1" button or share them or whatever.

And if this sounds like a great idea toyou too, jo... more »

Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  IL-M - 27 of 30

Note: 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 August 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting July 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."

Reading on a Sunny Day

Some time back I promised that I would visit the "Indian Mounds Park" area in St. Paul for some summer shots.  This was taken on the north end of the existing mounds (from the path - you can't climb the actual burial mounds) looking north and west into St. Paul.  Across the river is St. Paul Downtown Airport, "Holman Field." (From Wikipedia: Holman Field was named for Charles W. "Speed" Holman (born in 1898), who was a stunt pilot, barnstormer, wing walker, parachutist, airmail pilot, aviation record holder and airline pilot. (For Northwest Airlines)  see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Paul_Downtown_Airport )

There were additional burial mounds in this area but they were destroyed when the cliff face below was reshaped to accommodate the rail lines below by the river.

Heidi and Billy - First Dance

Heidi, the little girl who was the flower girl at Sara and my wedding is all grown up and got married to her best friend Bill this yesterday.

They are a beautiful couple and appear to be insanely in love.

(I will add some more pictures to this album as I have time to process them.)

May you have love that never ends,
lots of money, and lots of friends.
Health be yours, whatever you do,
and may God send many blessings to you!

I have been thinking for a while about this project.  I goes like this:

I've been around here since pretty much the beginning and I have a whole bunch of pictures in various albums.  I'm sure that there are a lot of others in the same situation.  

Some of those albums haven't seen a lot of traffic lately.  Not because they are bad or really old, but because they are so far down in the pile that nobody visits them anymore.

So let's share them again.  I invite you to take a look through these albums, and if you like the pictures, hit that old "+1" button or share them or whatever.

And if this sounds like a great idea to you too, join me.  Share yourolder albums... more »

Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  A-B - 23 of 30

Note: 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 August 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting July 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

I have been thinking for a while about this project.  I goes like this:

I've been around here since pretty much the beginning and I have a whole bunch of pictures in various albums.  I'm sure that there are a lot of others in the same situation.  

Some of those albums haven't seen a lot of traffic lately.  Not because they are bad or really old, but because they are so far down in the pile that nobody visits them anymore.

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

I was looking to see if the mail had arrived this morning and I found a visitor in my driveway.  Photo taken through the front door glass - I could tell it wasn't going to hang around long!  I got 4 shots off and he flew off to a tree across the street.

Album Sharing Project - Day 10

#albumshare   #albumreshare  

I have been thinking for a while about this project.  I goes like this:

I've been around here since pretty much the beginning and I have a whole bunch of pictures in various albums.  I'm sure that there are a lot of others in the same situation.  

Some of those albums haven't seen a lot of traffic lately.  Not because they are bad or really old, but because they are so far down in the pile that nobody visits them anymore.

So let's share them again.  I invite you to take a look through these albums, and if you like the pictures, hit that old "+1" button or share them or whatever.

And if this sounds like a great idea to you too, join me. Share yo... more »

In the mean time: enjoy!___
