Takahiro Yamamoto2,882,141We'll finish our 366 project in several days! Are you happy about it? Or are you sad? Anyway, who not celebrate the fact that we're completing our missions! You can share two shots this time. *Please remember just two images!* 1) Your best or most favorite shot you took in the fourth quarter of 2012 (October- December). Add #Bestof4Q12Creative366  in the comment section after you post the image! 2) Your best or most favorite shot you took for the project this year. Add #BestofCreative366Project  in the comment section after you post the image! If you think those two tags are too complicated, forget them and just two of your images! But please add your comment in the comment section after you have posted them. *And if you are the one who failed to complete the mission and are thinking you are going to do it again next year, you can add your fav one you took for the project here!* One last thing: I have made this event "public." I might have missed inviting those who are participating this +Creative 366 Project, so if you know anyone who isn't here but is doing his/her project, please invite them! 366プロジェクトもあと数日で終わりです。うれしいですか。それとも、悲しい? どちらにしても、長かったミッションの終わりを皆で祝いましょう! 今回は写真を2枚シェアしてください。 *2枚だけです!* 1.10月~12月にプロジェクト用に撮った写真から、お気に入りの写真かベストの写真を1枚選んで投稿してください。 #Bestof4Q12Creative366  のタグを投稿後にコメント欄に入れてください。 2.プロジェクトのために撮った写真から、今年のベスト(もしくはお気に入り)! の写真を1枚選んで投稿して下さい。  #BestofCreative366Project  をタグとします。 タグが面倒なら、ただ2枚を選んで投稿してくださるだけで結構です。写真のコメント欄に、その写真の思い出などを書き添えていただけるとうれしいです。 そして、このプロジェクトに参加したのに途中で挫折した!来年こそは!という方も、ぜひこのイベントにご参加ください。挫折するまでに撮った写真をシェアしていただければ結構です。もちろん、来年への抱負も添えてくださいね!The Best of Your 3662012-12-30 16:00:0088

Gailen Mapes75,675Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera F-H - 25 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.2015-01-25 11:59:29201001

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 October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 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 +2014-10-25 11:06:00204001

Hi!  Morning!  I am #dreamingofsummer  today.  I took this image in #minnesota   at Tamarack Wildlife Refuge.  The day I was at the refuge there were just swarms of all kinds of #dragonflies  , I had never seen so many at one time.  This one was different from any I had seen in Kansas with it's golden color.  I hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hi all!  I am #dreamingofspring  today.  It's not that cold out but it is so blah and brown.  Looking forward to sights like this where trees like the Cherry are in bloom.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!   It kind of fits the theme as it is part of a tree.  :-)

Tools of the Trade

Hi, a little late with my posting.  My real job that I have to make a living off of is lots of paperwork and not an interesting subject for a photo.  I decided to share my sideline hobby that has made me some money so could be called my "trade" as well.  These are the items I use most in my photography.  The ring flash is usually on my macro so doesn't quite fit the lens it's on at the moment but I liked how the LEDs were caught in the image.  Hope you enjoy it.

Hi all!  It's Friday!  Yay, it's been a long rather stressful week with an audit going on.  Winter is back as well with some snow on the way possibly.  So I'm #dreamingofsummer  today with this vision of sunflowers to keep me warm.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#beethursday +Bee Thursday by +Dorothy Pugh

Hi all!  I caught this Bumble Bee busy at work in this flower.  I can't remember what this flower is called.  It's heck getting old.  Sigh.  Anyway, I loved how it was all covered in pollen and was busily collecting more.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#wildflowerwednesday by +Bette Kauffman

Hi!  We are going to be unseasonably warm today before the bottom drops out tomorrow.  Flowers are confused and starting to emerge, this is not good.  Hope the future cold does not damage them too much.  I took this image out on +Konza Prairie last fall.   This is a wildflower called Ironweed that was in bloom and had the bonus of a Question Mark #butterfly  .  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#bokehtuesday +* by +Bob Baxley

Morning!  Hope those of you out in New England are staying safe in the snow.  I'll try to send our warmer weather your way.  I took this image while we were having cold weather and frost.  This is a branch of my in-laws Yew bush covered in sugary frost.  I really liked the bokeh in this one so thought it was perfect for the theme.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hi all!  I shared a photo a couple weeks ago of a Tufted Titmouse with a big peanut in it's beak.  This photo shows that they actually do eat them.  They are quite cute to watch breaking open the shell to get at the peanut.  I originally bought peanuts for the Blu-jays but these guys have been enjoying them even more and have been great fun so a win.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Morning, it's #steamysunday  with your curators +Paul Pavlinovich and me +Shelly Gunderson where we hope you will join in with ANYTHING steamy that you like!  We enjoy it all just please use the 3 tags above when you play so we can find and enjoy them.  Let's see some steamy images today!
This is Ex Soo Line 353 watering up in the fog early one morning at Rollag, Minnesota.  This is the locomotive I get to fire on and this was being done during the shift before mine.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!  We don't have fog like this but it's about as grey out today.  Dreary.

Goin' to Kansas City

Morning!  This is an image I took of Kansas City while we were heading into town from the north one morning.  We were heading to the art museum and shopping for the day.  I was not driving at the time, in fact I was in the back seat.  :-)  It was about mid morning and the sky had a different color due to the clouds that day and I liked that I caught some birds as well.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi, it's Friday!  I only had a 4 day work week this week but it has been a long one so I am ready for the weekend!  :-)  I bought some flowers and was playing around with lighting on them this past weekend.  I liked how this one turned out so thought I would share.  Hope you enjoy them as well and have a great day!

Hi all!  Giggle +  is working really oddly today.  Could be just me.  Anyway, these are Common Lacewing Butterflies.  I shot these at the Butterfly Pavilion in Colorado this summer.  A lovely place to visit.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi!  Morning!  I am #dreamingofsummer  today.  I took this image in #minnesota   at Tamarack Wildlife Refuge.  The day I was at the refuge there were just swarms of all kinds of #dragonflies  , I had never seen so many at one time.  This one was different from any I had seen in Kansas with it's golden color.  I hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#backyardbirdingmonday +Backyard Birding Monday #BackyardbirdingMonday by +Celeste Odono +Ricky L Jones +Marilou Aballe

Morning!  This is a Cedar Waxwing that came to visit yesterday.  I don't see these guys often but my pond in the backyard is frozen over because the pump broke that usually keeps an opening and they were thirsty.  Several Waxwings and Robins were visiting the birdbath instead so i got this shot as it rested in-between going for a drink.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!  It's a holiday for me and I am waiting for our new couch to arrive.  It was supposed to come Wednesday while we were working but it's coming today!  Not often that something works right for us.

My image is back to #westvirginia  and the great railroad, the Cass Mountain & Scenic.  A wonderful ride through the woods and up the mountain pushed and pulled by a Shay locomotive.  With all the green this also brings back warm memories.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#bwproject26  

Morning!  The theme for Week 2 of the BWProject26 is Macro.  We had some pretty cold temps for our area during the last couple of weeks so I was able to get this image.  When it gets down in the single digits our front storm door tends yo get some beautiful frost patterns on it.  They remind me of ferns.  I like how they look in B&W as well so thought they were perfect for my macro image.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day and start to your weekend!  I start a 3 day weekend so yay.  :-)

#wildflowerwednesday by +Bette Kauffman

Morning!  Busy day today.  Probably won't be around much until later this evening.  These are some very pale purple asters that were growing in a field near my house in the fall.  The flower heads are pretty tiny, maybe an inch across.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!  We are warming up to over 30 today!  Yay!

#transporttuesday +TransportTuesday by +Gene Bowker  +Annie Irving

Hi all!  Welcome back to the Transport Tuesday theme!  Thought I would share this Burlington Northern & Santa Fe combo of 3 different styles of locomotive schemes.  The first is their Executive colors which I think look pretty sharp, the second is the scheme they use for regular use, and the third which was a surprising find, is a locomotive still in the Santa Fe Warbonnet scheme.  I photographed this set in south eastern #colorado  , edited: La Junta  I believe on the way to the Cubres & Toltec.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

This is a quite different steamy Sunday shot for me.  I took this at the in-laws home near the end of December on a day where it was bitterly cold out in the morning.  The bird bath was emitting this steam and this Blue-jay was so nice to pose after taking a drink so just had to share him for the theme.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Morning!  This is a view my in-laws have out their back doors to their deck off their kitchen in Missouri.  On one particular morning while I was visiting there was some lovely color to the sky.  They get views like this and even more colorful often.  I am envious.  :-)  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!  Will have to catch up later, have to be gone most of the day today.

Hi all!  Thinking of much warmer days today.  This is an image from Rollag #minnesota  on the Western Minnesota Steam Thresher's Reunion grounds.  This is the area they use for horse drawn activities, not steam but used in the same time period.  This was a lovely warm day and it looked quite peaceful so had to get an image.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Morning!  When we went to bed last night it was minus 1 F and then when we woke up it was plus 8 so a heat wave!  It's actually supposed to get up to 30 F today so a heat wave indeed.  Thinking of summer though with this image of a Metallic Bee and a Fly on a Gerber Daisy.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Some great things being shared about taking back our streams and Google is even taking notice.  Yay.  Head on over to read and view this gorgeous image larger.

New Day's Hope

I have been doing a lot of thinking about how my main stream no longer shows everyone, or even a few and their newest posts, about how my own posts get increasingly smaller interaction, and how if my posts are doing that, then everyone's are.  I think the algorithm that governs what we see and what others see of our own stuff has gotten too restrictive.  And it frustrates me to no end - especially when I have 100 new posts in my stream and most are either 24 hours old, something I have already seen (and plussed or commented) or both.  Fresh isn't happening anymore and it is FRUSTRATING.

I don't normally notify anyone of my posts but for this, I am (and I am not even sure how many will get the notification - over 3500 in my circles).  What I am proposing is an experiment of sorts.  To all of those that comment on this post, I will go to your stream and plus the heck out of you, comment as much as possible, and over the next week, share a few my favorite posts.  Here is the catch - you have to share this post or something similar, calling your own circles to action.  

Let's see if we can shake up the algorithm a bit.  Let's see if we can take back control of our streams LIKE WE SHOULD HAVE.  Let's see if our streams start showing our favorite people again.  A week from now, I will make a new post so I can see if my stream has changed... hopefully, mine will and so will yours.

#winterwednesday by +Antoine Berger +Logan Miller

Hi everyone!  It's very cold here and we got a day off due to it though I found it quite surprising but I'll take a day off any time!  :-)  We have a high today of 10 (-12C) and we are supposed to be having wind chills of minus 13 (-25C) or more with the gusts.  I took this photo a couple weeks back and it's inspired by +Don Komarechka 's beautiful snowflake photos though nowhere as good as that.  I was happy with the detail I was able to get but I don't know how to focus stack so I should make that one of my goals for this year.  This is an image of frost that was on a wood railing.  I converted to B&W to bring out more detail.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Also, I remember one of the themes was wrong in Google Calendar but can't remember which one so hope I haven't tagged too many people.

Hi all!  Yikes it's cold out, 1 F as I was heading to work.  Yuck.  I finally got a decent Tufted Titmouse image!  However, as you can see, I had to bribe it to do so.  I decided to try and feed Blue-jays peanuts like my in-laws do.  The very first bird to get a peanut was a Blue jay.  Since then it has been several Tufted Titmice  snacking on them.  That's OK though, if the Blue-jay isn't around at least someone is enjoying them and they are very cute!  I think when we were gone over Christmas the Blue-jay left because no peanuts were out, the Titmice are still around for the sunflower seed.  Anyway, hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

My first image of the year had to be of my favorite tourist railroad, the Cumbres & Toltec.  This was our locomotive and train sitting at the station in Antonito, #colorado  ready for our excursion this past June.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Morning!  Supposed to get snow and sleet today, yuck.  Right now going all around us and can stay that way.  :-)  This is an image from October of a sunset over some pasture lands on a drive home not far from where I live one evening.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!  Will most likely not be around much today as we are finally going to see the Hobbit as long as the snow stays away.  :-)

#bwproject26  

Hi everyone!  Here I go with a new project.  I decided to try the B&W 26 week Project this year.  For the first image we were to set goals with our image.  My main goal with this project is to just finish it.  I have been really bad lately about starting and then not finishing.  With this project my other main goal is simple, to just better my B&W photography and learn new things by experimenting.  This image that i took recently is of a Petunia and I was experimenting with light and contrast to bring out details.  I think I accomplished that and hope you enjoy it.  This also fits in for another post in #floralfriday  .  :-)

Hi everyone!  Here I go with a new project.  I decided to try the B&W 26 week Project this year.  For the first image we were to set goals with our image.  My main goal with this project is to just finish it.  I have been really bad lately about starting and then not finishing.  With this project my other main goal is simple, to just better my B&W photography and learn new things by experimenting.  This image that i took recently is of a Petunia and I was experimenting with light and contrast to bring out details.  I think I accomplished that and hope you enjoy it.  This also fits in for another post in #floralfriday  .  :-)

Hi all!  Sharing an image I took last month of the Geranium that I have growing in the office.  Heading into the blah part of the year with no holiday decorations so have to come up with other ways to brighten up the house.  At least at the office i have some fresh flowers from plants I have growing there.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day.

Morning, Happy New Year's Eve!  Yikes it's cold, 7 F right now.  Not fond of this kind of weather at all.  This is an image that makes me warmer of a Swan family that I was able to observe at Tamarack Wildlife Refuge in #minnesota  this past summer.  The Refuge is a wonderful place with wildlife and lovely views and beautiful wild flowers.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great and warm day if you are experiencing winter right now.  :-)

Hey cool!  Someone from Kentucky just bought an image of mine, a favorite of mine as well!  I'm so pleased and thanks so much to that person!  Just had to share!  Forgive my bit of self indulgence.  :-)

Morning everyone!  Winter is definitely here today with a high of 12 F (11 C) in store for us, yuck.  I am really #dreamingofsummer  today!  This is an image from late summer/early fall of a Viceroy butterfly on the Sedum.  You can tell this is a Viceroy and not a Monarch due to the very defined line on the rear wings.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day and stay warm to those in the northern hemisphere.  :)

Hi everyone!  Winter is back and we might look like this later but I doubt it, chance of snow is not all that high.  Anyway, this is from this past winter when we got a decent snow and this female Cardinal had just got a seed from the feeder and then sat on the railing.  Hope you enjoy her and have a great day!

Hi all, it's the last #steamysunday  of 2014!  Hope you will play along today and share ANYTHING steamy that you like.  Please mention co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and me +Shelly Gunderson and the theme so we can find them easier.  Lets see some steamy images it's very cold out around here today!
This is something a bit different for me.  Trying a new style out and a different subject.  This is the type of steam traction engine that my husband +Darren Gunderson works on in Rollag #minnesota .  This is a Minneapolis.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all!  Dreaming of Spring today as an arctic front is on it's way and we are still under gloomy skies.  I manipulated the background of these Daffodils a bit so they could go under the #photomanipulationsaturday  theme.  If you look closely there is a spider on one of the flowers waving Hi!  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!  Will try to catch up later, have more company coming shortly.

Hi all!  I saw this theme and had never participated in it but thought this pair of Postman Butterflies fit rather well.   I photographed these two in the Butterfly Pavilion outside of #denver   #colorado  .  I think they were partaking in some amorous activity.  ;-)  Hope you enjoy them and have a great day!

Hi all!  We are getting a bit of rain again, nice cause we need it and a lot more but I'll take what I can get.  It's supposed to get cold again tomorrow and maybe snow then.  Winter, gotta love it.  NOT!  :-)
I was playing in B&W again, I'm going to try the project again this year and see if I can stick with it this time.  This is a tulip from this spring that I processed in #silverefexpro2  and liked the way it turned out.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hi all!  It's the penultimate #steamysunday  of the year!  Hope you will join in and share something steamy of ANYTHING you like, it does not have to be trains.  Just please mention me, +Shelly Gunderson and co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and the theme so we can find and enjoy them easier.  Let's see those steamy images!
My image for today is locomotive 353 by the roundhouse as it heads around the grounds to the other pickup point for passengers.  Everyone can ride for free.  It's a great way to get from one end of the grounds to the other.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#sunsetsaturday by +Dennis Hoffbuhr

Morning!  Today starts my 2 week break from work!  Woohoo!  :-)  Lots to do at home though.  This is an image of the sunset that I shot back in October at the Geary State Fishing Lake near where I live.  I was heading back to the car at this point but loved the light in the clouds and the look of the water.  Hope you enjoy it as well and have a great day!

#floralfriday +FloralFriday by +Tamara Pruessner +Beth Akerman +Kiki Nelson +Eustace James

Hi all!  Thought I would share a lovely yellow Lady Slipper with you today.  I get to see there sometimes in western Minnesota when we are there in June.  They are part of the Orchid family and rather elusive.  I was able to see several of them this year.  You can see from the shape of the flower how they get their name, they do look like a slipper.  Hope you enjoy it and have a good day!
