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 +2014-07-23 10:34:33170000CC G+

Stuart Dyckhoff25,692February EngagersIt's time to share the circle of those of you that have engaged with me this past month. The number is way down on January but then so has my sharing - mostly due to the weather. All in all, the end result is not surprisingAdding these people to your circles is your choice but I can confirm that everyone in this circle is an engager. What do I mean by engager?Simply that you have left a comment, even if only one word, on one of my posts throughout the past month. And the only way to get in next months is to engage with me. However .... one word comments or simple statements will not keep you in my circles. This is a temporary circle for the specific month and after this post it will be deleted. So far a couple of you have been added to a permanent place in my circles because you have gone above and beyond simple comments and for that I thank you again.Irrespective of your level of engagement I do truly appreciate each and every comment anyone makes. It is this interaction that drives any social media site. Without it, we may as well not be here.So, thank you, diolch, grazi, merci, etc.2014-03-01 20:55:054829110CC 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 03:06:3237613277162CC 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+

One of the TV stations in the UK being sponsored by Mitsubishi are to air a documentary showing dog fighting.

To add some perspective, you are all aware of my rescue dog Harry and how much I love him, these people will think nothing of stealing him from my home to use as a bait dog, that means he could be attacked by dogs training to fight so they get a taste for fighting, it would go on until Harryd... more »

#fivedayquest  -- Day 1

Someone I used to consider a friend suggested I join in on the fun(?) of posting a picture a day for five days of just stuff going on in my day. Sounds like TMI to me :)

Here is an event that happens everyday: feed the dogs. This is Leo eagerly awaiting his breakfast (the other one is already busy eating).

The other part of the fun is to tag another soul to see if they'd like to share in the pain fun. Has +Robin Griggs Wood had the pleasure? :)

I'm an Arcanum Master now –– yeah! ( +The Arcanum thearcanum.com ) –– and these days looking through applicants who want to grow as artists. I decided I wanted my introduction video to be more than just an "About me" thing, but something to reach farther and elevate others with. If you feel the same, spread the word about the myth of "talent" and let people know that ART and CREATIVITY is available to everyone who truly wants it. No one is left out.

"The Myth of Talent" and an introduction to Robin Griggs Wood

Here is my primary focus for my Arcanum Cohort:

– To help people overcome the myth of talent and bring back their greatest faculty for learning, the ability to play
– To help people overcome creative blocks
– To direct, foster and give a general kick in the arse to personal creativity. Ichallenge peopl... more »

Deep in the country I stumbled upon what appears to be a new alien-contact communication hub. The solar panel portion is clearly sized for a much larger power drain than this small dwelling so the assumption there are other units either deep underground or hidden in a neighbouring dimension. Construction appears to be almost complete (the lawn-to-be has been seeded) but no inhabitants were seen.

Dear EVERYONE,

This is me…
SO HAPPY!
Guess why?
I got myself a phone call from Nikon
Oh yes… yes I did.
A loaner camera is ON ITS WAY!!!! And THEN I will send in my broken camera in. 

HAPPY DANCE

Thank you, Dear Nikon, for making an exception and allowing me to continue doing what I love to do… and keep food on the table for my kiddos. 

Thank you - each and every one of you who helped make my voice heard. TRULY.
And thank you SO MUCH to ALL of you who so unbelievably offered to send me their own personal cameras so I could make due. I cannot believe how generous that was, and how many offers I received. I am TRULY a blessed girl. My amazing family.

Dear NIKON (+Nikon Canada Inc, +Nikon USA)
Hello,
My name is Chrysta Rae.
I AM a full-time professional photographer - even though you don't consider me one.
I make my living doing interior/architectural photography.

I was a devoted Canon user, until I heard about your amazing 14-24 mm wide angle lens.
Because of that lens, I switched to Nikon.
And I was SO excited and proudly told everyone that I had switched.

I spent ALL of my savings (I am a single Mom, so let me tell you - spending over $5,000 on a brand new Nikon D600, a 14-24 lens, a 28-300 lens, a Nikon SB-700 Speedlight flash was BEYOND my financial limit by a LOT. a LOT.) 

My photography changed instantly - the camera is unreal and that lens was worth every penny - BUT day ONE I discovered these spots on every single one of my photos. What the heck?

So Ir... more »

#fivedayquest   -- Day 6

What can I say, I'm a big fan of Douglas Adams and his 5-part trilogy :)

Here's to the end of the day and the end of the quest for five photos of my simple life. I thank +Christin McLeod for pushing me into it (all those bored by the previous 5 shots should write to her and complain - don't forget to include a stamped self-addressed envelope so she can reply). Since it is Day 6 I won't tag any other unsuspecting soul but I will tag +Lauri Novak and +Tisha Craw as two souls who appreciate a nice glass of wine (or two, or thr...) ;)

#fivedayquest  -- Day 5

Yes, it is the obligatory morning coffee shot. Photographically inspiring ain't it? :)
But this is an important start to every day of my life for many years so it deserves a spot in this mini-chronicle. Blame +Christin McLeod, it is all her fault for tagging me :p

Besides, I get to tag in #coffeethursday  and my friends +Stuart Dyckhoff +Maki Silberberg +Jason Kowing +Sairam Sundaresan which I haven't done in far too long.

The #fivedayquest  is simply posting an image stolen from your life for five days, tag your instigator and another of your (soon to be ex) friends
to join in the fun (that person is free to decline). Today I'll ask +Jorunn Gudlaugsdottir if she would like to play.

#fivedayquest   -- Day 4

A little photo of a photo-making for today. The azaleas are coming into bloom and making their Springtime statement. I was hoping to catch one of the big bumblebees at work but that was not to be. I have 32mm of extension tube attached to the 70-200 lens so I can get a nice close-up of the blossom .

I got tagged into the "one photo a day of your everyday activities" by +Christin McLeod (I'm sure she regrets this by now :) ) and, as part of the chain letter post I need to tag another to join, or not as they choose. +Rachel Ferris are you interested?

#fivedayquest  -- Day 3

And so it begins, weed wars and grass cutting. I don't try to win, I just want  'em to know I still have some say :)

Five days, one shot a day of something going on in your life. +Christin McLeod sucked me into it and I have to initiate a new person to see if they want to join in the fun(?) :) 
+Nancy Battis Vita are you willing to play?

#fivedayquest  -- Day 2

Off to do some biking. My wife and I did a little over 6 miles today, not a lot by some measures, but this is the first real time on a bike since I broke my ankle earlier this year so I'm pretty pleased with the result.

One shot of something in your life for five days. +Christin McLeod tagged me and I'm supposed to return the honour to another (who needn't accept). Today's target honouree is +Darion Jackman :)

#fivedayquest  -- Day 1

Someone I used to consider a friend suggested I join in on the fun(?) of posting a picture a day for five days of just stuff going on in my day. Sounds like TMI to me :)

Here is an event that happens everyday: feed the dogs. This is Leo eagerly awaiting his breakfast (the other one is already busy eating).

The other part of the fun is to tag another soul to see if they'd like to share in the pain fun. Has +Robin Griggs Wood had the pleasure? :)

Signup here for Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play

This is a special program on the art and weird science of motion blurs, intentional camera movement, long exposures, and much more, offered through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers .  I will be taking on a small group of people for an eight week online mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. This is going to be huge fun, and a great learning experience!

To me, blurs and unsharp photography have represented a new dimension of artistic freedom – a fresh and joyous way to play with light, color, form… and sometimes their absence.  My hope is to inspire some of you to find more of that joy in your own photography, and to offer some techniques, tips and tools to help, along with plenty of practice!

My own photography has benefited enormously frommento... more »

I don't often have something to share for #transporttuesday  but I caught this guy hauling some cars in front of the derelict Bethlehem Steel works.

This was my submission for the April round of #TheBWProject . The theme was "Inspired by Literature" and I chose Poe's poem The Raven as my inspiration:
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!"
                                    Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

This is a single shot processed in Aperture and Silver Efex Pro

Hmmmm, being as it is #floralfriday  and since I was just at a place where there are a couple of flowers (Longwood Gardens) I do have a flower to share. It is an orange one (I'm told that is the technical name, right +Shannon Adelson and +Alan Allum ? :) ) This is all +Rachael Switalski's fault for organizing the event. :)

Forsythia, fər-ˈsi-thē-ə, I like the way it rolls off the tongue, fore-sith-ē-ə

Bursting with yellow, sunlight on a branch, Spring is now!

Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play

With the support of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers , I’ve decided to offer a free eight week program on the art and weird science of unsharp photography.  The official signup post will be next Tuesday, April 29, and the program will run from May 9 through July 5.

To me, blurs and unsharp photography have represented a new dimension of artistic freedom – a fresh and joyous way to play with light, color, form… and sometimes their absence.  My hope is to inspire some of you to find more of that joy in your own photography, and to offer some techniques, tips and tools to help, along with plenty of practice!

We’ll be covering a range of topics, including not just how to take certain kinds of images (and sometimes why), but also tools in post-processing and phone apps.  My goal is to be able to offer theprogram to... more »

Some mossy bits.

I don't have a theme for this, I just liked the colours and the glow so I'm sharing it. :)
