Tara Meyer-Robson3,023HIGHER THOUGHT/INSPIRING CIRCLE Created by +Tara Meyer-Robson  (1st Edition)This is my first circle share, so I wanted to make it a great one! Please SHARE and LIKE to be added to version 2! I’ve realized how important it is to surround yourself with people that inspire you, that allow you to dream, that kick you in the behind on days when you are ready to give up, and who are always willing to look for the higher meaning in the lessons of life. In this group, you will find those that will do all of the above!This is a circle of truly amazing, intelligent, and spiritual individuals. Most people are either personal friends or others that I've been interacting with here in the few months I have been on G+ and I’ve connected with many of these people on other networks, too.  All people here are very active on Google+ and worth adding to your circles. They come from all over the world and have many different backgrounds: some of them are authors, writers, bloggers, and creatives; all are inspiring people who love to connect to a higher frequency. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++If you’d like to be added to my circles, it’s very easy: you can certainly keep engaging with my posts, or keep sharing great content of your own or others.To connect with me, here are the other places you will find me: My Website: www.TaraMeyerRobson.comOn here, you can sign up to get a free healing meditation and to get the best I have to offer on how to shift your life and heal your body by understanding the underlying cause. That’s my passion and what I do best, so please feel free to connect with me there. Twitter: http://twitter.com/tarameyerrobsonFacebook: http://facebook.com/tarameyerrobsonLinkedIn:  http://www.linkedin.com/in/tarameyerrobsonFor Authors: http://HowtoBeaBestsellingAuthor.comWhen my book first came out, I really struggled trying to get sales. Desperate to find an answer, I studied what other bestselling authors were doing to drive their books up the bestseller lists, and I put together a formula that I thought might work. It did, and it cost me almost nothing to do. After helping other authors do the same, I packaged the whole thing up so I could share the information with as many authors as possible. For Affiliates/Writers/Bloggers: If you are interested in earning 75% on my products, I am on www.clickbank.com  - here’s my Vendor Spotlight: https://theflow6.accounts.clickbank.com/spotlightProfile.htm?f=spot&v=theflow6. Right now, affiliates are making about $62 a sale on my Bestseller in 1 Day! Program. I offer a ton of Affiliate Tools, such as approved Google ads that have converted for me, a list of Google keywords, sidebar ads, and more.  If you are a writer or a blogger, this is a great opportunity for you to have a high-quality product to promote and monetize your blog. If you’ve never monetized your blog before, feel free to reach out to me and I’ll help. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++MY BRAND-NEW COMMUNITYMind-Body Healing for Everyone: https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/103956739698618922440Join us to learn how to translate what your body is te2014-03-12 19:34:34500311724CC G+

Dubie Bacino55,195Inspiring on Google+ Curated by Opajdara (3rd Edition)This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is engaging content that will enhance your #Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------I have gained a tremendous number of followers these past few months thanks to being shared in many public circles, and have met a lot of interesting people in the process. So I decided to start sharing two of my circles every month:  - FRIENDS: 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)SOCIAL NETWORKINGIf you need more shared circles, check out the ones posted by +Friend Filer.

Stephan Spelde8,664My Inspirational CircleEver since I joined Google plus in the end of the year 2011 I have been looking for those special ones. Those people that inspired me...touched my soul with their work or made me laugh my pants off.It took me over 2 years to fill this circle up to 500 inspirators, but today... I finally added my last person. :)I will seek more of these in the future, don't worry, and this means I will have to share multiple circles from now on, but for now...these are the 500 most inspirational people on Google Plus for me.A great big Thank You to everybody in this circle for enriching my Google Plus experience and inspire and motivate me in becoming a better photographer.artist. #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circles  2014-01-09 22:05:0550031930CC G+

Zvonimir Fras17,307101 Amazing PhotographersI don't usually share circles of my own......this is a special occasion, since I've gathered 100 photographers who's work I really like.It took me more than a year, and many of them came to my attention when I started managing +Stunning Moment alongside +Alycia Miller.Some of them are extremely popular with millions of followers, and some of them have less than 10 or 100 followers.Some are very active on G+, some are mostly active on other sites.If you're into photography (and you are if you're seeing this post) this is the circle you want to add ;)Feel free to share this with each and every photography-lover you know, they will thank you ;)Please tell me if you think I missed someone!

Back in Las Vegas and finally got up for an early morning sunrise view of Red Rock Canyon out here.  It's a beautiful place, and, I know, not what most people think of when they think Vegas, but you can drive out here in just 20 minutes... A good break from the Casinos. I recommend you visit next time you're in Vegas.

I'm in Cambodia now. Last night I may have witnessed (and photographed) something never before seen in the storied history of the 900 year old temple of Angkor Wat!  I'm being dramatic, yes :-) 
 
It began with my desire to take a sunrise photo. Its my first time in Cambodia, and I'd yet to visit the famous temple at dawn. I got up at 4:30am to be in place for the  sunrise. I was up so early, there were still stars in the sky. My trusty Tuk Tuk man Heng greeted me and we began the 30 minute drive out to the temple through the old town of Siem Reap. 

As we drew closer, we both noticed strange lights shooting up from the general direction of the temple and into the starry night sky. Heng has lived here since he was 11 years old and told me he'd never seen these lights. I speculated that they must be practice/preparation for some kind of show they're planning atthe ... more »

I've spent a nice few weeks in Thailand, going all over the country... from the beaches in the south to the country's highest mountain in the north. Once you leave Bangkok, it's a very relaxed, laid back place. I've not been able to get many photos I'm happy with, but here's one. This shot is from Ko Phi Phi Leh, a small, uninhabited island with a few pristine beaches. It might look familiar to you from the movie "The Beach" which was filmed very close to here.

A major typhoon is touching down in the Philippines right now. I just left the country a few days ago and took this photo on the flight out. The Philippines has faced so much natural disaster... While there I visited the earthquake damage in Bohol. Over 300,000 people were displaced from their homes just a few weeks ago after the 7.1 quake. In Manila I stayed with a family who's home had been flooded multiple times over the years. In the worst flood, they lost their most treasured possessions. The Typhoon today (Haiyan/Yolanda) is the strongest storm on Earth this year and one of the largest tropical cyclones ever recorded in terms of wind speed (235mph). Catastrophic damage is expected. Fortunately, they think it's blowing by so fast that the flooding won't be as bad as the wind damage. For info on donations, safety and volunteer work, check the Red Cross:... more »

I've been in the Philippines for about a week now. I didn't expect Internet to be so hard to come by, but I ended up driving up North of Manila -- Baguio, Banaue, Bontoc, Sagada.  The rice terraces were the standout for me. I never made it to the place where they're supposed to be the most beautiful. This shot was just from the road on the way to Banaue from Bontoc. We got lucky with the timing and the distinctly purple hue of the sunset.... So nice :)

In just 2 hours I'll be on a plane to South East Asia.... So looking forward to this trip. I'm hoping to drift a bit... I want to visit many countries, but have no particular agenda. I love being in rural areas and slowing down of the pace of life. If things go as planned, I'll get Internet access and will share photos and thoughts about the trip. Here's a shot I took last October in an out-of-the-way part of China. It was one of my favorites of the trip and I still like it a year later... (Which is rare with me and photos!)   So excited :-)

I spent a few days on Kauai, the "Garden Isle" in Hawaii. A really beautiful place and one that I'll return to again and again to try and capture it's beauty... This is from a rainy/cloudy afternoon, when the sun peaked through for just a minute. Of course, even when it rains in Hawaii it's still warm and people enjoy the outdoors. It never really gets cold here. :-)

Burning Man 2012 - That's the man off in the distance. I sat here for awhile with my camera and was taking long exposures as there was barely any discernible light left from the sun... Luckily, while I was waiting, some cyclists with the perfect color lights rode into my shot and into the distance and I got a long exposure with light trails. :-)

From last year's Burning Man. I don't know these people; they didn't pose for me... That's one thing that's so wonderful about Burning Man, all these wonderful moments happen left and right... You don't have to set anything up. The opportunities are endless. I'm packing up my RV right now, getting ready to go to this year's Burn. I like to arrive a little late after the chaos of entry has subsided somewhat :-)

A scene from Burning Man 2012. This was an awesome moment that is both combination sandstorm (blowing down below) and some very unusual clouds (up above, obviously hehe).  I've been working on getting my stuff together to go on Tuesday.. I'm planning to arrive a day late and avoid the wait on the way in. Are you going?

Have you heard about the boy in China who was born with blue eyes and can see in the dark? "Nong's night vision has sparked interest around the world by vision scientists, evolutionary biologists, and genetic engineers. And this is good news for science as we may eventually be able to use genetic technologies to deliberately create such a condition ourselves." 

If they'll be offering night-vision as a for-purchase genetic mutation, I'll sign up :-)

On the top of the Empire State Building, New York, New York. Last Night I watched the movie Oblivion, and thought to myself "I've been up there!" (the Empire State lookout / observatory plays an important part in the movie). Here's a photo I took from that location on Thanksgiving last year. :-)

Was in Vegas a few nights ago and there were several fires on the horizon, courtesy of lightning during extreme heat (118 degrees!). The smoke from one of the fires covered the sun, turned it red and made this beautiful sky.

Here's another shot from my recent Beijing/China trip. This one was taken atop the Beijing TV tower and facing some brilliantly lit buildings.   On the right bottom corner here, the dark area is a construction zone. I can't wait to see how this area changes as new buildings are completed. The last shot I shared here was taken from the same location, but looking in the opposite direction.  Note: I uploaded this one in full resolution, try zooming in and looking at the detail. Pretty nifty :)

Here's a shot from Beijing, China, taken a few weeks ago during my visit. I wasn't able to post much there because G+ was blocked. As many of you who have been to Beijing may attest, the skies are quite muggy and polluted there. I only saw a blue colored sky once in 10 days. Though I'm not completely certain, this appears to be a nuclear power plant, so what's coming out of those towers would be steam. Maybe that's one step to cleaning up the air in Beijing.

Does anyone know how to access other photo albums besides the camera roll when using the IPad on Google+? This is about the fifth time I've thought "I'm going to post a photo to google+" and then find I can't, because the photo I want to post is in an album I created. Then after about 5 weeks I'll forget you can't do it, and I try again and doh! Im stuck again. I also can't find a way to choose photos from my Android phone, I can only select photos I've already uploaded to G+ or take a photo. This omission makes me think I'm really missing something / just being brain dead :-)

Android Experts?  Hey Folks - I'm looking into a new phone here soon. I don't mind waiting if something else is coming out in the next 1-3 months. Right now I have a Galaxy SIII, which I'm not super happy with because of the changes to the OS made by Samsung. Before that, I had a Nexus phone whichI loved, and, as I understood it, was the OS the way Google intended it. What I'm looking for is the fastest phone, with the largest screen that has a straight Android OS (by straight I mean, no modifications by the phone manufacturer). What phone is that? Or is a new one coming out? (On a side issue, the camera does matter to me as well... But I'd probably give up the best camera quality for the first 3 requirements.)

I've arrived back in America -- Hawaii specifically -- and witnessed a spectacular rainbow yesterday evening just before sunset. I wanted to post it up now even though I haven't shared some of my favorite China shots yet. This shot almost didn't happen because raindrops kept getting on my lens. Finally I was able to wipe it clean and snap off a shot before the rainbow disappeared.. Life is good :-)

Tomorrow I'm headed to South Korea for two nights. Does anyone have any suggestions on cool buildings or landscapes to photograph for my two quick nights there in Seoul?

A lot of people ask me about my workflow - how I process photos and that sort of thing. Lightroom 4 is a big part of it, and the new Lightroom 5 (currently in Beta) will be as well. I find Lightroom to be so much easier than Photoshop (though I use that too!) On Wednesday, the Lightroom product team will be hosting a hangout where we can all ask questions and hear what's going on with the new product. My photographer friends 
+Dallas Nagata White and +Ed White are going to be acting as the Google+ community representatives and help field the questions from the user base.  Don't miss it, it's Wednesday at 11:00am PST. Here's the event link:

Here's a shot I took from the Google Office in Japan several weeks ago. Tokyo is an amazing town. How fun would it be to work for Google in such an exciting city?  We had a dramatic sunset that night, it started looking ominous (captured here), but it happied itself up after awhile... :-)

The London Tower Bridge. I shot this on a cold day in November last year. It's really an amazing site and fascinating when you consider construction started in 1886. I've never seen the drawbidge portion go up and down. Apparently it's a rare event these days :-)

Here's a shot from Queenstown, New Zealand I took in January. You don't have these sorts of views in Los Angeles, where I am right now. I wonder where the closest place to see stars like this is outside of LA? Joshua Tree? Not really sure.  I've not been shooting for a few days and am itching to shoot something epic :-)

It feels nice to be back in Los Angeles using my desktop computer with a large screen and updated versions of my photo software. One of the joys of geekdom, I suppose. As I was backing up my files from the trip and updating everything, I pulled up this photo of the Manhattan Beach pier I took over a year ago when I was just getting started with photography. It was really fun to process an old shot on my big screen, and using an actual mouse. Such  a nice zen morning, and I vivdly remember the feeling of being at this pier back on this special day. I'm happy :-)

I'm back in Los Angeles... looking forward to a night of rest in my own bed. Here's another shot from Japan. I spent a few days in Kyoto on this trip and was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a real-life Geisha slipping inside a traditional inn on the streets of Gion. Not my typical kind of shot, but it's probably still one of my favorites from the trip.

Spent the final night in Japan at the Robot Restaurant (see +Trey Ratcliff's post) and wandering around Kabukicho shooting street scenes. It's pretty wild there, but I caught this more peaceful moment as things were shutting down very late. This shop owner was putting away his lanterns for the night. 
The Japan adventure is over for now. Jumping on a flight to Los Angeles in a few hours, but I'll definitely return to Japan soon. I love it here.

On Sunday, +Trey Ratcliff and I continued our Japanese adventure guided by +Negoro Kaori, her husband and +Sulwyn Lim (two Google+ employees in Japan).  We stopped to eat in this quaint place on the road to Mt. Fuji. I loved this village, and tried to capture it in a way that evoked that storybook feeling it gave me. This is my last night in Japan, I'll miss it. :-)

I've been in Japan for almost a month now, and my BFF +Trey Ratcliff joined me 3 days ago. Last night we went out shooting with +Takahiro Yamamoto and encountered this GIANT GUNDAM, an amazing 7-story tall robot, which even has its own themed cafe here in Tokyo. The cafe was closed, so we didn't get to eat GUNDAM-shaped cookies or anything cool like that. This morning we are about up to head towards Mt. Fuji with some friends we made at Google+. I'm excited to get out of the city and see a little bit of the countryside today. :-) We should have no trouble since our new Google+ friend +Negoro Kaori also works on Google Maps here in Japan. (Btw, if you are using an iPad with Apple's map app, be sure to download the Google Maps app. Apple Maps is horrible in Japan, and almost everywhere else outside of the US!) Update: Can anyone tell us about the origin of the GUNDAM?

I always find country-by-country health care comparisons to be intriguing. I've been in Japan for 3 weeks and got sick a few days ago. Today I went to a hospital and was delighted with the experience and service.

First, I found a place within a few miles of my hotel that advertised English speaking physicians (quick Google search got me that),

Second, when I entered the hospital it felt more like a nice hotel or lounge than a place for sick people. There was even a live piano player in the main lobby / waiting area.  

Third, I easily found the receptionist, told them my symptoms and was assigned a department and doctor within minutes. The forms/info were minimal. They required a 30,000 Yen Deposit (about $300 US). 

Fourth, the doctor called me in within seconds of walking across the main lobby to his area. He hadc... more »

The Meiji Shrine in Tokyo's Yoyogi Park is a wonderful place to visit. If you go there just at sunrise, there's almost no one there. Just a few temple attendants sweeping the leaves. I've been in Japan 3 weeks now, I gotta say I love this place. Here's a photo from my first morning, when my sleep schedule was messed up and I actually got up before sunrise. :-) The shrine itself is a large, impressive structure. This is just a little building outside where you can scoop up water with a ladle to clean your hands and mouth before entering the main shrine.

I caught a dramatic sunrise from the top of the Hyatt hotel where they filmed Lost in Translation the other morning. This is one of my favorite shots from my current Tokyo trip. Loving this place :-)

Washington DC at Sunrise About two weeks ago I was in Washington DC laying on the ground, shooting this sunrise over the reflecting pool and the Washington Monument. When I was there I'd heard talk about the blooming of the Cherry Blossom trees, but I was there too early for that. Well, now I'm in Japan and the Blossoms are in full bloom... I haven't gotten a great photo of them yet. Still trying :-)

Shibuya Crossing, Tokyo The Shibuya crossing is famous for the tidal wave of pedestrians that flood across the street in every direction. It's really awesome to be down there in the mix.  

This photo was taken around midnite when I arrived in Japan last night.  I was super tired, but I got this shot just before I went to sleep.  I plan to be here for a month, maybe longer. I've been to Japan a few times, but that was back in 2007 when I was working and not taking photos, so I've actually seen very little of the city.  

Can anyone recommend photo spots around the Tokyo area? Or other photographers who are living here/shoot here a lot. I'd like to see what the locals have captured. What's the best place to go up in a building and get a skyline shots of the city? In a week or so I'll probably venture out to Osaka, Kyoto and other more scenic areas. Soany... more »

Just spent a week road-trippin in the American South - mostly in Georgia and North Carolina. Before I arrived I'd Googled locations and was hoping to  get a cool photo of a swamp. I never quite did find what I imagined in my head, but I found this dried up and drained swamp on my last day in Augusta, GA. I woke up with a few hours before my flight and the sky looked intense. The clouds were ominous and strange and I thought to myself, "Dang, no photos today." Normally I look for happy blue skies and I won't even shoot in these conditions, but it turns out the muted and somber tones were perfect for this location.

Here's one I took about a month ago in Sydney, Australia. It's shot from underneath the Sydney Harbor Bridge, which was built in 1932. For a time, it was the world's widest long span bridge. And until 1967 it was Sydney's tallest structure. :-)

Shot this one in Oahu, Hawaii too. The moon cast an unusual color light because of the volcanic fog coming from the Big Island. That's my friend +John Hook holding still for 30 seconds while I captured this long exposure. We were camping on the beach at Bellows ... Awesome time :-)

Yesterday I went out to shoot some underwater photos in hopes of capturing dolphins. None of the dolphin photos came out good, but I did capture a double rainbow. It's a nice feeling just floating in the ocean and seeing this :-)  (Even nicer when you've got your camera!) This was shot in Kapolei, just off Electric Beach on Oahu.

Up in the clouds, or ...? I think this photo is a little misleading at first. Yesterday me and some friends went hiking out to a remote group of cliffs past Hanauma Bay on Oahu. We had stopped to take shots on this unique arch ... It sorta looks like we're up in the clouds, but it's actually a long exposure during the day with an ND Filter, so that's just water below him there (thanks David for showing me how to do that). I've been in Hawaii for about 10 days now, taking photos every chance I get. I've had a great fun with my fellow photographers: +Dallas Nagata White +John Hook (pictured), and four others who don't use G+: zaknoyle.com, jonasmaon.com, David Chat (unrealhawaii.com), and sticksxstonesjewelry (instagram)

So we were adventuring today...all kinds of dangerous ocean shenanigans were occurring...and I managed to capture one of +Tom Anderson in sequence. Tom, is the camera okay?

We all love Google+ but one of the best unexpected things it has brought me is a new best friend, +Trey Ratcliff. I just spent two weeks with him in Australia and New Zealand. He's changed my life in many ways, and the most obvious is that he got me started taking photos. I was a bit sad when he moved to New Zealand earlier this year, but after visiting him there this week, I know we'll have many adventures there throughout our lives... And, of course, we still continue to travel the world together.

Here's a photo I took of Mount Cook from our trip last week. New Zealand is even more beautiful than it looks in the Lord of the Rings movies. Go visit if you ever get the chance!

Did you know you can walk right up to Lava? I discovered this on my recent hike to an active Volcano on the Big Island in Hawaii. The slow-moving lava flow is hot, but you can get right next to it... literally within inches. I was about 2 feet away when I took this long-exposure shot. Kilauea is the most active volcano in Hawaii, go see it if you can, it's something you'll never forget! I'm headed back to Hawaii today and am thinking of heading out there to see the Volcano again!

Finally getting a chance to post a bunch of recent photos! Just after New Years Eve I took a 3 hour hike out where the Kilauea volcano lava flows into the ocean on the Big Island in Hawaii. Here's a shot of my photographer friends +Ed White and +Dallas Nagata White standing in front of the lava! I love that you can see stars above the extremely bright lava flow!

On the road back from Milford Sound, +Trey Ratcliff and I pulled over to take some star shots. This one was interrupted by an on-coming vehicle which created this crazy eye in the sky effect. That's not photoshop, it's a lens flare that appeared in camera. I don't think I could recreate it if I tried, kinda cool!

Just spent two weeks with my BFF +Trey Ratcliff. We started in Australia and spent the last week in New Zealand. Last night we were in Milford Sound and the moonrise was creating fantastic and beautiful light on the water and mountains. I discovered my camera timer had a 20s setting (I thought it only went to 5s, which limited my selfies), so I had more than enough time to go strike a pose in my own shot. That's me in front of the classic New Zealand landscape, the place Rudyard Kipling called the 8th wonder of the world! I learned that by reading a flyer in the bathroom at the lodge where we spent the night :-) Tip: I always like to remind people-- click on the photo and press space bar to see it full screen.
