Mike Runyon28,425While I realize a lot of people have to work on President's Day, it is worth while asking for the day off. The traffic is considerably less and the crowds are diminished, making for far more photo opportunities. All those who can attend can meet just inside the main gate as there's a large area to gather and then proceed on through the event. There is a lot to see and do, as well as some great food to go with! There are numerous shows and great displays and has been quite the fun time all the years I've attended. You can buy tickets at the main entrance or you can usually pick up discount tickets at Fry's groceries. http://royalfaires.com/arizona/ Even though you may not be able to attend, please share this with any and all you think might be interested in the event!Arizona Renaissance Festival President's Day Photowalk2013-02-18 18:00:0020

russ vallelunga29,418Sycamore is the second largest canyon in the Red Rock District of Coconino National Forest (the first being Oak Creek), but is lesser known, and less traveled.  It's also more pristine, less populated by 'venturers', and friendlier to unspoiled~nature photographic scenes.  A riparian habitat in the desert, the subjects to photograph range from macro to landscape.  30 minutes out of Cottonwood, Az, a light decent of 200 feet leads to a level, sandy hiking trail   I'm staging a 'hiking' photowalk here, September 16th (alternate date, Sept. 30th if the 16th turns out to be unsuitable due to weather).   This is wilderness habitat.  The trail is mostly sandy and smooth, but sturdy shoes are needed. Bring at least 2 quarts of water per person (or purification tablets for the natural springwater); pack a non-perishable lunch, plus snacks.  There are *no* toilet facilities in the wilderness. I will bring a light shovel and a couple rolls of TP; we shall be considerate in covering any natural wastes and elsewise packing out what we pack in.  Animal subjects may include Golden eagles, mountain lions, bobcats, badgers, great blue herons, and black bears (most are elusive, but it could happen) and certainly smaller birds, squirrels, rabbits, and reptiles.  Natural subjects include miniwaterfalls, sandy waterways with moss and fungi, and water pools bathed in red-rock reflections.   Flora subjects include cottonwood, sycamore, and Arizona walnut trees, & a variety of wildflowers, vines, moss and fungi.  The photowalk will end about 2 miles in, at a pool of water about the size of an Olympic sized pool, surrounded by rocks of many colors. You're invited to camp out overnight at the trailhead for an early start/meet & greet  (campfires may be prohibited--bring a camping stove, or cooler for chilled foods).  There's no moon on the 16th, so I will offer assistance in astro-photography if desired.   Morning travelers to the event should use a travel site such as googlemaps or mapquest to determine at what time in the wee-hours of the morning they will need to leave from their location to arrive by 7:30am, then leave 1/2 hour earlier (just to be sure).  Those arriving late are welcomed to follow down the well-marked trail to catch up with the group.  Photowalk: Parson's Trail, Sycamore Canyon, Az2012-09-16 16:00:0011

Gailen Mapes75,495Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera P-R - 20 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.2015-01-20 11:52:36122000

There is no requirement to reshare, but resharing will probably help you get more followers and engagement and precious metals and gems :)))) (I had to strikethrough that as some people don't understand jokes!)But 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. If you were left out, it was either because of the cut-off or because I made a mistake. I wasn't trying to leave you out on purpose. Also, this circle is at full capacity (just about) so it would have been hard to add any more.2015-01-19 12:21:3649611321

It also gives everyone a chance to learn a little bit about why I like to have you in my circles, and if they would like to add you to your circles. You'll need to use a public post or Google plus won't give you a link to it. There are lots of new people in this circle. This is your chance to make some great new connections.Here's the second bonus for reading this far. You have a chance to win one of our coveted "Blue Footed Boobies" tee shirts. Everyone in this circle (plus Pam) who shares a link to a post will be added into a new circle.  We will give one member of that new circle a coveted Blue Footed Boobies tee shirt as pictured in this post: http://goo.gl/2MJGE4 - in support of breast cancer research.If you don't have a public post of your own that you would like to share you can include a link to someone else's awesome post that you like.SHARING COMMENTING PLUSSINGAll the above are welcome and appreciated, but please do any of the above for your own reasons. You are in this circle already because of our interactions or because I admire what you do online and I want to recommend you to others. This is not a snowball circle.

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.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 +Gailen M2014-04-20 10:27:5311715012

Three Camera Selfy
For Weeklyphotoproject2015-Try a new technique.
I decided to make this really something I hadn't tried before, so I used 3 cameras, 2 tripods, 2 speedlights, camera popup flash, remote optical flash trigger and a remote rf shutter release.
The idea was to catch my trusty old Vivitar 285 speedlight with an optical trigger, mounted on the F2 I'm holding  partway through it's flash cycle which is rather short, without washing out the exposure,  and by playing with various shutter speeds I finally did so.

Cemetery Geocaching
While out exploring the cemetery for the now ghost town of Pinal City, +Rimgaudas Vidziunas and I came across a geocache for the grave of Celia Ann "Mattie" Blaylock, Wyatt Earp's common law wife who died from an overdose of liquor & laudanum. Her death is listed as a suicide.
+Rimgaudas Vidziunas was kind enough to use my camera to take this shot of me holding a picture of Mattie that was among several items in the cache box.

Action on the Avenue
Last evening, shortly after 5:00pm we heard all sorts of sirens and they stopped on the street in front of our home. Walking out in the driveway i saw what must have been over half the squad cars in town parked from in front of our place to down the street, two houses away.
There were at least 6 or 7 squad cars, three fire department vehicles and a few minutes later 3 unmarked cars with detectives who started getting all their cop equipment out of their respective trunks.
It reminded me a bit of "Alice's Restaurant" and thought about the 27 8x10 glossy photos from that song.
Called the local cop shop this morning, asked what was going on and was told it was a medical emergency. I said it seemed like a lot of personnel for a medical emergency and they then said it was more than that, but they couldn't say right now! I hope to find out more... more »

They were still there well past 9:00pm!

Chimping in the Park
Weeklyphotoproject2015-Street Photography
A gentleman sitting on the walkway wall at Boyce Thompson Arboretum reviewing his mornings shoot.
From a test roll I recently finished putting through my "new" 1979 Nikon F2as, Nikkor 43-86mm, Agfacolor 200. The camera's meter and shutter speeds seem to be dead on, but can't say I much care for the graininess of the film since Agfa sold the manufacturing rights to some Japanese concern. Apparently they didn't sell their film making technology to them!
Guess it's time to order a few rolls of Kodak's Ektar!

Pinal City Cemetery
Pinal City was abandoned shortly after the Silver King Mine ran out and the post office closed in 1891, the graveyard was used by a few of the residents of the nearby copper mining town of Superior for a few years until the Forest Service appropriated land for their own cemetery. This one is from June 21, 1916.
The graves are laid out in rather haphazard fashion, not in rows or any particular order. Not sure if the posts around this one is to keep people out or the deceased in!

Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks?
Yoda passed 10 years on last December, which by the online dog age calculator makes him 56 years old for his breed (Parson Russell)  and while he's a bit stiffer in his senior years, he still knows several tricks. He can do sit, shake hands, high five, roll over, speak and a few others. He seems to like the pictured trick more these days!
Since he's become older he's gotten too stiff to do the somersaults he used to do to greet me when I came home.
The last few years it's been his turn to teach me new tricks, such as having a towel on standby when he has to use the doggie door on rainy days and helping him get in our bed in the middle of the night, when it gets too chilly in his bed on the floor. He can still jump up there by himself, but his sister, Molly sleeps at the foot of the bed by the bed bench and he doesn't want to... more »

It seems three politicians would find it more convenient for their personal businesses to send Arizona back into the dark ages of DST while Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana are introducing legislation to repeal DST.
It would be great is instead of changing Arizona's time, we changed these three politicians!

Dangerous Cap Guns
I saw a posting yesterday on Facebook concerning Airsoft guns and people getting themselves shot by police while playing with them.
It reminded me my brother and I both got a set of 2 Nichols Stallion Colt 45 cap guns for Christmas in the late 50's. These were full size replicas and rather heavy and had removable bullets you could pull apart and put round caps inside. When they fired smoke would come out the barrel. Our older brother was kind enough to show us you could put more than 1 cap in the bullets and really feel the air from the barrel about 20 feet away!
Thing is we had them for years with many a fun shootout, but were never shot by the cops! You don't suppose it was because we never pointed them at people or the cops in particular?

American Kestrel Breakfast
Having it's morning breakfast courtesy of some hapless bird he nailed. The smallest of north America's falcons and the only kestrel found in the Americas, they tend to launch at smaller prey from trees or poles and sometimes hover in the air waiting for an opportunity to strike.

Morning Surprise
Starting out to take pictures of the snowfall we had last night when I discovered my Dakota was totally iced up! The doors were frozen shut and required a bit of force to get opened and then, as you can see I got to scrape windows before heading out! 
I thought I'd left all that behind when I moved here from Indiana!

Microsoft Technical Support
Just got a call purported to be from Microsoft technical support claiming my pc was having problems that were showing up online. 
This guy sounded like a Pakistani and went on about we needed to change some settings, but when I asked him how to change my Linux system he got all flustered and then I told him Microsoft never calls Windows users and he hung up right after I told him he could take his technical help and shove it where the sun don't shine!
I have doubts they'll call back!

Digging Rights
Years ago this little guy and I got into an argument as to who had the rights to dig in my yard. I had grass where I was living at the time and was trying to get the lawn looking decent, but he decided he needed to make lots of holes in it. 
As quick as I'd fill one in he'd either make another or reopen the one I'd just filled. Turns out he didn't much care for me running a garden hose down his holes and decided it was time to move along! Sure takes a lot of water to fill one of their holes!

Christmas present?
Our garbage disposal gave it up a day or so before Christmas so I got to make a trip to Home Depot for a new one. 
Funny, but my wife had never even heard of a garbage disposal till she moved to the U.S., so I asked her to ask her mom when she talked to her Christmas eve and her mom had never heard of one either! On doing a bit of research I discovered, while well over 50% of American homes have them, very few in Europe do and, in fact, they were even banned in some European cities. Some cities in Sweden though will actually subsidize the cost of one, although the percentage of use is only about 5%. 6% in the U.K. and about 3% in Canada.
While they were talking her mom heard me using my electric carving knife in the background and now thinks Americans are fascinated with all things electric! lol

I'm told the county has since restored it to it's original beauty. Too bad we have to deal with idiots vandalizing things of beauty!
Leica M3, T-max 100
From some negs I discovered I had today.
