ShroomshotSaturday672Enjoy the all of the photos of all the people in this circle full of photographers who have shared their awesome shroomshots with #shroomshotsaturday.  If you have shared in the last month and have not been included in this circle, please let one of our curators, +Patti Colston  +Michael Albrecht +Anders Stedtlund or +Sabeena LoBello  know and we will be sure to include you in the next shared circle.Want to be included in the next circle?  Simply share your  fungi photos with us, tag +ShroomshotSaturday  #shroomshotsaturday  and all of the above curatorsWe LOVE shroomshots, but due to the increasing popularity of this theme, please only 1 photo per week.  It is becoming difficult to acknowledge and reshare all of the fabulous submissions that pour in all week long and this way,  during the seasons where shrooms are scarce, you will still have some to share :)Thank you for understanding and happy Shroomshooting :)2013-11-10 21:59:1625713512CC G+

I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050113386127CC G+

Margaret Tompkins48,891>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 10,000 FollowersThe photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 10,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Many are fairly new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2013-04-14 22:18:2334135373160CC G+

Curating Content on Google+4,580The new Pʜᴏᴛᴏɢʀᴀᴘʜʏ ENGAGERS Cɪʀᴄʟᴇ is out!    [ Mar 28, 2013 ]Record participation again last week!  The bar has been set higher!Quick start instructions:➀  post a URL link to a G+ photo in the comments below,➁  check out some photos from others and +1 and comment on them,➂  publicly share this circle-post, from a new friend's stream (instead of ours)➃  add this circle, and replace it every week.You will get a comment from us and be added (or stay in) the circle share next week!  Questions?  Ask in comments below - you'll get help!Full story: This circle is for meeting engaging G+ users about photography.  The interaction happens in the comments and re-shares.  Post a link to a photo from your stream during the last week in the comments below.  It can be your photo or someone else's.  Then from the comments here, check out someone's link, and comment on / critique that photo.  Try to pick someone new each week, so you will meet new people and make new friends (more than 1 is ok too).  Re-sharing their circle-share helps them learn about Ripples!Results: your photos will get more exposure, you will be circled more, and you'll find active people to add to your stream.  Re-sharing this circle is highly recommended, and some form of engagement is mandatory.  That will result in a curated circle that's always fresh!  If you drop out for any reason, you can get back in at any time by adding content & engaging in the current weekly circle!We respond with up to 3 ☑ next to your name: 1 for linking your photo, 1 for sharing the circle, and 1 for a +1 on this post.  The circle will always have the people who interacted the most over the last 3 weeks.This will be done every Thursday.  It is for active G+'ers that want more interaction and exposure. This is a hybrid idea, taking the best parts of circle sharing, communities, and G+, and rolling them into one!Biggest Ripple last week: +Wiebke Delightgraph with 10!   Top Influencers last week: +Malthus John, +Ree Saunders, +Alan Shapiro, and +Medicine Tree Studios.  Special thanks to you too!See http://goo.gl/ldooJ for full details!Also, a big hug for the "little elves" who help make this work:+Malthus John +Sara Schiavi +2013-03-28 22:44:44382411120146CC G+

Gene Bowker45,875First Name T-ZThe #photographerstofollow  2013 #alphabetcircles Curated by +Gene Bowker So who are these folks? And why are they photographers to follow?First of all.. this circle contains a bunch of my closest friends on G+. The folks that I spend the most time "with" on here.  There are a bunch of great photographers and just as importantly "good people" here.How I decide who to circle and share:1) Active : They have posted within the last month. With the holidays a lot of folks have slowed down but these folks are still there. Yes, I visited each stream.2) Original : These photographers are sharing mostly  "THEIR OWN WORK" and their stream is mostly photography. 3) Interactive : I try to find folks who are interactive and comment on their own posts and the posts of others.4) Honestly, 99% of them circle me too. I usually figure if someone doesn't circle back, they are no longer interested in my work and I make room for someone else in my circlingThere are some names you will recognize in here for sure, but there are also some folks you probably don't know yet. Hopefully you will take some time to check them out and see if they have room in your circles.Any omissions are wholy on me too as no one asked for did anything to be included in here.I hope you'll reshare in your stream!Why?I love it when people take the time to reshare these circles.It allows my friends to be introduced to your friends.. and promotes some great photography on G+.Not in hereThere is no need to ask for inclusion.  I add folks as I come across them,  you can read more about how I select athttps://plus.google.com/111112809838472063992/posts/NeJZXLJ6oQBBe Original. Be Active. Be Interactive.There is a good chance we'll cross paths before I share the circles again.NoteThis is the last circle for round one in 2013. As my new job starts next week, I'll be spending less time around Google+ until I get moved to ATL and settled in with the new position. Here are the #alphabetcircles for 2013A-Chttps://plus.google.com/111112809838472063992/posts/YUPre2B2kckD-Ghttps://plus.google.com/111112809838472063992/posts/4ZJPzcPtrizH-Jhttps://plus.google.com/111112809838472063992/posts/eKB7DCAVG3tK-Mhttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/HvFzPoFpE7CN-Shttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/TX3VXzpLCeWT-Z2013-01-31 12:15:48197653152CC G+

Vince Ong10,656Vince's 2012 Top 200 Kindliness Photographers.It's all back to why we circled a particular people in the first place? Yes it's all because of that artistic and impressive work. Well on top of that, a photographer needs to interact and talk.Why these people are in the circle?They are here because they interact and communicate. At least at their own post, they reciprocate and say Thank You to those that had left a comment.Because of their kindliness, I had certified them and you are safe to circle all the 200 great people here. You can start to comment on their work!Happy New Year!2012-12-29 13:30:3320115160124CC G+

Brunner Nathan1,086The photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 10,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Some are new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographerr that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles2012-12-24 08:19:0850022323CC G+

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 #circleoftheday2012-12-15 20:38:08340506CC G+

Chris Mallory17,861Just 150 PeopleBecause it's saturday, here's a random circle share that consists of most of my favorite people on G+. In here are people of all sorts: people whom I personally enjoy engaging with, people whose content I believe to be interesting, people whom I can call friends, and people that don't know that I exist but make interesting posts anyway. It is certain that I've probably accidentally excluded some people - if so, my apologies! I've also purposefully excluded a handful of people such as real life friends, as well as +Miss M since she doesn't like being in my circles. Thanks for being cool, guys :)2012-12-08 22:45:1915029017CC G+

I had the awesome pleasure of hanging out with +Jason Keomany and +Scott Jarvie this past weekend.  Scott is currently working on his book project, Faith in America: Religious Buildings of the United States, so we visited a few churches around Ann Arbor, went by the Stadium, and had a nice dinner.  Next time you're in town Scott, be sure to hit me up again.  And if I ever get out west again, I'll do the same and look you up (I have some relatives who live in Provo).   #cheers   #drivesafe

We ended up with a pretty big snow storm here last week.  I attempted to make it into work, but both paths I tried were blocked with cars stuck in the drifts.  This video is a time-lapse of my drive.

"Senior Photo" shot from this fall, in Ann Arbor, MI.  I have two boys that are both Seniors in High School this year - super excited for their future plans.  One is likely going to Michigan Tech, and the other will be signing his paperwork and joining the Navy soon!

I'm really a noob when it comes to photographing people, but I've got so many family members asking for shots lately, I figured I better get to learning.  This day plagued me with really high winds, that kept blowing her hair all around.  Not sure how to get around that, so if you've got any tips aside from lots of hairspray, let me know!   #cheers

Been trying my hand at a few new things lately.  Namely, doing a little bit of timelapse photography.  The video below is my first "test" I did a week or so ago.  Still got a lot of learning to do, but I'm really digging it so far.  Hoping all you are doing well!  Give it a quick watch... it's only like 30 seconds.

A young button-buck I tracked for quite a while.  Ended up running into the rest of his family, accidentally spooked them all across a busy road.  They all made it across safely.

Take a break from pulling weeds, mowing the lawn, fertilizing, and get out into the world and explore.  Even if you don't go to take photos, just go see what you can find.  Nature will do the rest.

I haven't been too active posting on G+ lately, mostly because I've been kinda taking a break for shooting for a bit.  I participated in a +G+ 365 Project last year, and while it was an amazing journey, I just needed a bit of a break from things.  With #spring2013  finally getting things in gear around here, it's motivating me to get back out there and shoot...  This tiny little Robin Egg must have slipped out at the wrong time - with no nest in sight.

Went back and visited with one of my favorite Detroit churches this afternoon.  Every time I go to check her, she's in much worse shape than the time before.  All the plaster is pretty much melting off the walls, and all detail work above the doorways has all been stolen.  I'll keep going though, until they seal the place back up, or tear it down.  She's one of my favorites!

Absolutely love exploring places with significant historical backgrounds!
This ballroom in Detroit hosted so many great names back in the day... Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin, Pink Floyd, The Grateful Dead, Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Jeff Beck, Procol Harum, Cream, The MC5, and The Who.
Quite an honor to visit, but I fear it may not be around or accessible much longer.

Woods on Ice - Detroit, MI.  To my knowledge, nobody has ever claimed responsibility for creating the massive sculpture that resides in this church.  It had to have taken several days to complete, and contains items are large as a piano, to items as small as puzzle pieces.  The floor was covered with ice about 1" thick, which made walking around a bit dangerous.

There aren't many chairs left at this abandoned theater in Detroit, MI.  The ones that remain are in a pretty "drafty" area, so you may want to bring a jacket.   Alice Cooper, the Doors, Pink Floyd, Jefferson Airplane, Bob Seger, Jethro Tull and the Grateful Dead are just a few of the bands who played here between 1969 and 1973.  Afterwards it hosted Jazz shows, became a theater for the performing arts, Raves back in the 90's, and was home to a church for a short while.

Digging through my archive of shots from last fall that I never posted, and came across another decent shot of this tiny little guy.  I would have loved to get a time-lapse video of this thing spouting - it'd be hilarious.

We used to climb but no one tries to go up that far now

Revisited one of my favorite abandoned churches in #Detroit  today.  My goal was to explore the underground tunnels, and check out the movie "props" that were recently constructed down there... of course I couldn't pass up the opportunity to re-shoot some others areas as well.

For some reason, horses have always scared the crap out of me.  I'm not sure why, but I think it's just because of their size.  I photographed this one, along with two others for about 15 minutes on a cold foggy morning recently, and I swear they tried to bite me at least 6 times... although my wife claimed they were just trying to get me to pet them.

I've had some really weird activity on my photos today.  Lots of comments from non-English speaking people, and random +1's and reshares of photos I've posted months ago.
It took me a little while to figure out was going on, and it turns out, one of my photos was selected as one of the "Featured Photos" on Picasa Web Albums!  Mine is the green flower in the upper left, which has now been viewed nearly 400,000 times.  Wow, how cool!

Day 367/366
I've barely touched my camera since completing my +G+ 365 Project +Creative 366 Project's four days ago.  I'm purposely giving myself a little break from things for a while, and catching up on some other things that need my attention.  Plus... it's been so darn cold here this week, I don't feel like doing much of anything.  Won't be long though, and I'll get back on my horse shooting again.
I do have quite a backlog of shots from the project that I haven't posted yet, so those will be coming your way soon as well.  This collage I'm posting today was made from all 366 photos that "made the cut".  If you missed any along the way, or want to check out the entire album, you can find it here:

Day 366/366
My quest is complete.  An entire year of taking and posting a photo every day... for 366 days!  In a way it's kinda sad that it's ending, and at the same time, I'm very grateful for the end.  
A huge thank you to my wife +Rachel Benore for all of the encouragement along the way, and for putting up with my relentless "picture taking time" day after day.  To my children I owe thanks as well, as the project took quite a bit of time each and every day.  
In all, I took a total of 15,496 photos this year... and it seems this is only the beginning.  To those of you who have followed along with me on this journey, I thank you as well, for all your encouragement!  Wishing you all a Wonderful and Happy New Year!

Day 365/366
Had a chance to get out an explore some more abandoned places in #Detroit  today.  We hit up about four locations, and this church was by far my favorite of the day.  It was pretty trashed inside, but I loved the architecture and the murals of people they used to decorate some of the back walls.

Day 363/366
More ice you say?  Well, it's definitely a lesson I learned early on in my +G+ 365 Project and +Creative 366 Project's...  That lesson is to take whatever nature gives you, and just go with it.  So many times I've set out with the intent on shooting spiders, and end up only finding butterflies.  Other times I want to shoot mushrooms, and all I find are spiders.  Just take whatever nature gives you, and make something wonderful out of what you're given!

Day 361/366
We've been holed up in the house for a couple of days now, and even though today was the first big winter storm of the season, the wife and I decided to venture out and run some errands.  Stopped at a few places along the way, and this shot is my favorite from the day.  The weird patterns in the creek weren't from a long exposure, but from sections of the stream beginning to freeze over and become slushy.
