Jeff Smith60,305Welcome to The Selfy Sunday Project for July 28/13.This weeks theme: In The ShadowsI am looking for something mysterious, something hidden but you are perhaps wanting to reveal.

Christi Nielsen31,718Everyone get ready for the G+ 2 Year Anniversary Photowalk!   Woot!We're meeting at Union Station at 6:30pm. If you like architecture, Union Station has fabulous ceilings, lines, arches and more. We'll venture out into the surrounding area as well, and we just might end up on Olvera Street for some LA history and margaritas! =DInvite anyone you know who might be interested. They don't have to be on G+!Photo contest!  The categories are: Macro, Wildlife, Portrait, Landscape, Architecture, Black and White, and Sunrise/Sunset. The photo needs to be taken during the photowalk, and you cannot enter it in more than one category. I'll have more info at the event. You must be a member of G+ to enter the photo contest, so if you're bringing friends who aren't on G+, encourage them to create an account if they want to enter. **UPDATE:**Here's the plan folks: We'll spend some time at Union Station, then head to Chinatown (7:15). Sun sets at 8:08 so we'll still have some light before the sun goes down. After that, the lights at night in Chinatown are pretty cool. Then we'll head back to Olvera Street (which is right across from Union Station). For those who wish to stay, we'll pop into one of the mexican restaurants there for food and margaritas! I expect to be back at Olvera Street around 8:30, but you know things always take longer than you think, especially with photographers! We'll meet at the main entrance to Union Station (Alameda street). If you come to Union Station via the metro lines, you'll need to walk down that long corridor to the other side. You can't miss it, you'll instantly see the high ceilings and fabulous architecture. If you don't see anyone with cameras, look for a Circus Circus wig. That'll be me. I tend to like to know a little info/history about where I'm shooting, so here's a bit to get you started if you're interested.Union Station - "Last of the great railway stations" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Union_Station_(Los_Angeles)Chinatown - Was demolished to make room for Union Station - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinatown,_Los_AngelesOlvera Street - Birthplace of Los Angeles - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olvera_Street Here is a link to info about photography and the Metro. Keep in mind you CAN use a tripod in Union Station if you fill out a short form. You'll have go to the Security Office right inside the main entrance. If you can't find it, ask the Information Desk  (in the picture above). I'm pretty sure when you get to the otG+ 2 Year Anniversary Photowalk - Los Angeles, California2013-06-29 18:30:0066G+
#MetallicMonday1,139I meant to do this for a while, but finally thought about doing it enough in advance this week ;) So anyway to get to the point. I think it is long overdue that the page gets a decent cover photo. While I can try to take one myself I thought it'd be a lot more fun if we make it an event and then decide which to use. So anyway if you have a photo, which you think would fit, and don't mind me using as a cover of course, then just put a link in the comments here - or add it to the event .. although I think if you "normally" share with the page and #MetallicMonday  and put a link to the post in the comments here it probably makes more sense.#MetallicMonday needs a cover photo2013-05-26 12:00:0010G+

Thomas Hawk6,164,4602,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 5 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi and Mi-Sh.  Today's , part 5 of 5, represents Sh-Z. I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for part 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6fPart 4-5:  http://goo.gl/Tq9HCO*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-05 16:07:314714429109CC G+

They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to August 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting JAugust 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 creat2013-08-20 10:39:352111017CC G+

Thank you everyone for patiently waiting for the results in the Photo Contest!

Just giving you a heads up here so everyone doesn't think that they have been forgotten.   。◕‿◕。

Right after our Photo Contest entries were closed I went off on my annual camping vacation. (29th year) When I got back I became pretty sick and have been down for the count for a while now. I went to work today even though I'm far from being well, (still have to pay the bills) but please hang in there and know that the event is still moving forward and I'll give you another update as soon as I have a firm time frame for completion.

My apologies to everyone for the speed-bump here in the flow of things.

I remember the moment so vividly as if it just happened ......

As most everyone knows, I don't sleep a lot and on this day even less. I had finished talking to a friend at about 3 am my time who happened to live on the east coast and was just getting ready to leave for work. She worked  in one of the WTC towers. I was back up a few hours later and as I was getting dressed, I looked over at the TV to see what was going on. That's when I noticed the smoke coming out of the building and wondered what had happened? I continued getting dressed and was waking Nica up so that she could start to get ready for school.

She was wondering what was going on and at the time there wasn't much information and the speculation was that a plane had crashed into tower #2 WTC. I remember thinking how in the hell could someone not see that big of a building with it being so clear out.... more »

Keep your digits crossed for my little girl....

She just got her first interview set up for starting her teaching career with Autism/Aspergers children on Wednesday!   。◕‿◕。

I'll give an update after she hears something back, that could take some time. It is in a local school district and it is for one of the levels that she was hoping for, so that would be a nice bit of icing on the cake after her working so hard through all of her school years to get to this point.

Even if she doesn't get this one, it is good she got an interview and recommendation from the University as one of the top prospects for it.

I remember thinking how in the hell could someone not see that big of a building with it being so clear out. Nica was kind of staring at the TV taking it all in when all of the sudden I said "Oh No" and Nica said "what's wrong?" I had just seen a plane come across the horizon from the shot I was seeing on the station I was on. I knew that it should not be that low and then it disappears behind the buildings and as I waited for it to come out into view on the left side of the buildings my anxiety grew more and more quickly as it should have already been visible.....

Then came the explosion on the left side of tower #1 and just at that exact moment...... my eyes exploded with tears and my heart sank as I knew that my friend was gone.....

RIP Jan ....___

Summer cool down

Beating the last light to end a great day....
I heard these three boats coming from off in the distance as I was getting ready to head home. I waited a bit longer until they came into frame.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

I caught this paddle boarder enjoying the last light of the day.
I was shooting some shots at a birthday party for someone and this was shortly after I had finished. I decided to take advantage of the setting where I was and catch a few moments of the setting sun.

It made me wish I was out there on that board.......

I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend as I head off to work ;-)

I don't often post links to videos, however this is different.

Do your self a favor and watch something A M A Z I N G!

Grab a tissue or two and enjoy something very different that is hard to believe......

If you feel moved by it, feel free to share it with your friends.

Crazy Humans

Why do they walk around all day trying to break open those eggs with those different sticks they're carrying in those bags? Then after they don't break, they walk or drive after them and do it again, over and over until they get tired and go home...

The Lone Soldier

Standing tall in all it's glory, it was calling to be captured when mother nature painted the background.

I was happy to oblige and thankful for the memory.

Right before I got the full moon shot I posted earlier, I was up in the hills shooting in the other direction. I caught this sunset and enjoyed the symmetry of the whole thing. It had some cool layers....

I hope everyone is having a great Thursday out there in Googleville!

Full Moon Rising

Haven't had a chance to get out and do some photography in quite a while due to my crazy work schedule. I got off a little early yesterday and knew that it was going to be a full moon. So I checked my Android app "GoogleSky" to find out where the moon was going to be rising in the horizon. 

I was up in the Tustin foothills at the time and when I checked the location, it was going to be rising over some un-exciting hills. So I beat it down to the Tustin Ranch Golf Course to see if I could formulate a shot using the fountain that is lit up at that point in the night. At the time the moon was still below the horizon, but the app lets you see where it will be at when it does rise.

So the end result is/was I set up my tri-pod and camera, adjusted the settings and then laid down on the grass for a while watching mother nature do her thing.more »

The Sun will come out tomorrow

Another shot I found going through my shots from +The Google + Two Year Anniversary Photowalk while I was with my group in #G+2yearAnniversaryLosAngeles . This is looking out over Elysian park and Dodger stadium would be just to the right of this up on the hill.  Not the greatest, but it kind of showed the sunset we were getting at the time.  。◕‿◕。

On my quest for getting myself well again, I'd say maybe 75%... but considering where I was.... that's a really good thing!

G'morning/afternoon/evening wherever you are in Googleville....

Keep your digits crossed for my little girl....

She just got her first interview set up for starting her teaching career with Autism/Aspergers children on Wednesday!   。◕‿◕。

I'll give an update after she hears something back, that could take some time. It is in a local school district and it is for one of the levels that she was hoping for, so that would be a nice bit of icing on the cake after her working so hard through all of her school years to get to this point.

Even if she doesn't get this one, it is good she got an interview and recommendation from the University as one of the top prospects for it.

I'm a Dodger Blue fan through & through and today they got their 15th straight road win! That's pretty bad ass I don't care who you root for.

A little shot I got of the Stadium at night form the first G+ Anniversary photowalk.   Go Dodgers!!

Thank you everyone for patiently waiting for the results in the Photo Contest!

Just giving you a heads up here so everyone doesn't think that they have been forgotten.   。◕‿◕。

Right after our Photo Contest entries were closed I went off on my annual camping vacation. (29th year) When I got back I became pretty sick and have been down for the count for a while now. I went to work today even though I'm far from being well, (still have to pay the bills) but please hang in there and know that the event is still moving forward and I'll give you another update as soon as I have a firm time frame for completion.

My apologies to everyone for the speed-bump here in the flow of things.

The Glory Days

Sometimes I wished I could have been born earlier when I'm feeling a bit nostalgic.....  Then I remember that I wouldn't have my daughters or grand-kids if I were and snap out of it.  。◕‿◕。

In any case, here's a shot I caught  on the #G+2yearAnniversaryLosAngeles inside Union Station and loved the art deco feel I got from it.

I hope everyone's having a great weekend, I get my day off tomorrow!!

I'm not sure if this was meant to be, before or after the meal?

On our trek through Chinatown for #G+2yearAnniversaryLosAngeles I noticed this across the street and back a bit. There was a tree blocking it as I was walking up the street and as I looked back...
it made me laugh.   。◕‿◕。

In any case, I thought it was a funny little sign.

Have a Great weekend everyone!!

6 Theme shot

I was perusing the +Daily Photography Themes page to give me some inspiration to edit something for today. I found a little something something to fit in several of them, so here you go.  。◕‿◕。

This was a shot I took down in Victoria Beach and was killing some time hoping for the clouds to break by sunset. I thought I would try a little selfy and include my Kodak Vigilant Six-20 for interest.  There wasn't anyone around, so I kind of had to guess on the focusing point and then used my wireless shutter release to trigger it.

So this is me with the Victoria tower in the background......
I don't normally post to multiple themes, but thought this would be fun for the listed themes for Tuesday

For my buddy +Mark Esguerra  up in the LA area that we need to get back out on a little photowalk and of course end up here!

I snapped this while out on my photowalk in #G+2yearAnniversaryLosAngeles

Hopefully I'll see you soon my friend......

Soylent Green

Just keep walking people.....

Old movie that popped into my head while editing this. This shot was taken at #G+2yearAnniversaryLosAngeles photowalk inside Union Station. I slid over next to one of the walls looking down the tunnel and noticed all the leading lines. I then processed it in monochrome to help focus on that. So this was my take on the Union Station tunnel shot.

I enjoyed how the neon was outlining the architecture on this building, it seemed very surreal to me.

When the sun goes down the lights come up

Edited while listening to Chicago.- Saturday in the park

The perfect song to listen to while editing this photo. There's symbolism everywhere.....  This photo was taken during our photowalk on Saturday and edited on the 4th of July......

The sun was going down, yet the buildings were stealing it's hidden light from behind the hill.

After looking deeper into the shot as I was editing it I first saw the American flag hanging from the building off in the distance. Then I noticed all the light Stars and the red & White Stripes formed from the long exposure of the cars going and coming.

Sometimes we plan a shot and other times they just come.

I just wanted to remind anyone that wants to add a photo to this Photo Contest, make sure that you read and follow the rules listed in the "About" section.

I had to remove photos and a person already that was posting photos that were not taken during one of the Anniversary photowalks. There was ample time to remove them instead of being disqualified and it was not done.

Have fun everyone, there's some great photos being submitted!!

+Carra Riley I'm heading out the door, can you make sure this gets shared into all of the categories?  Thank you...

Chinatown

A shot I got from above Chinatown on a parking structure. The sun was going down and the lights were coming up.

I thought it was an interesting contrast with the building in the background standing like a lone soldier.

When the sun goes down the lights come up

Edited while listening to Chicago.- Saturday in the park

The perfect song to listen to while editing this photo. There's symbolism everywhere.....  This photo was taken during our photowalk on Saturday and edited on the 4th of July......

The sun was going down, yet the buildings were stealing it's hidden light from behind the hill.

After looking deeper into the shot as I was editing it I first saw the American flag hanging from the building off in the distance. Then I noticed all the light Stars and the red & White Stripes formed from the long exposure of the cars going and coming.

Sometimes we plan a shot and other times they just come.

Here's the link to the song I was listening to at the time: Chicago.- Saturday in the park Original

4th of July

I'm not sure if you were able to get to see any fireworks on the 4th or not, but here's a few if you want to browse through my local show.  ;-)

No exciting landscapes to go along with the shots, because they were literally right on top of me...... 

Since it is #fireworksfriday I thought I would share some for the theme curator +Jörg Seidel  and there are many #colorsonfriday  to share with the curators of that theme +Karsten Meyer  +Britta Rogge . So I guess that would make it a #feelgoodfriday for those curators +Rebecca Borg & +Jason Borg and of course these were all done at #nightphotographyfriday so I'll share those with +Mark Hammon & +Steve Passlow 

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!

A guy named Gay

This is a shot from the Union Station in Los Angeles. He was sitting in one of the many comfortable cushioned chairs and not really making eye contact with anyone.  I walked up and sat down beside him and asked him how he was doing. He basically answered all my questions with a single word and very limited eye contact. 

I think he may have been autistic and I got him to look at me when I asked him if he liked fudge. I'm not sure if he thought I was crazy or just really liked fudge, but I told him that I was with a group of photographers that were walking around taking pictures of interesting things. I then said that I always make a batch of fudge for the people that were joining in the group and I have some left over if he would like some. He almost smiled a little bit and then nodded yes.

I opened up the container that I was keeping it in and took out a napkin and grabbed a couple pieces to put in it, then I looked up and he was still looking at the fudge so I grabbed a couple more pieces and wrapped them all up inside of the napkin and handed it to him. He took it from me without saying anything and then went back to looking down as to apparently not make eye contact with anyone.

I then told him to have a good day and asked him if he would mind if I took his portrait for myself. He said yeah, but I didn't know if that meant that he minded or not so I rephrased it and said it is OK for me to take your portrait then? He nodded yes and looked back down motionless.

As I got up I noticed two young girls that were sitting a couple of seats away and watching the whole interaction I had with him and they were smiling too.

I grabbed my camera and took a couple of shots before I moved on after thanking him..  which he nodded back at me.

Reflecting on LA

Grabbed this towards the end of our photowalk while we were in Chinatown area of Los Angeles. By the time we got to this point, the sun was already hiding behind the hill in front of us. It did allow for some nice colors peaking out and reflecting though.

The Magical Mysterious Ms +Yas Mean

I grabbed this shot while on our Anniversary walk in Chinatown.  She graciously accepted when I asked her to pose for me. If you cross paths on a photowalk with her, you will enjoy the company.

4:00AM time for me to get some sleep  @¿@

Trying to get caught up some what with all these notifications/emails.

Here's a shot from our anniversary photowalk in #G+2yearAnniversaryLosAngeles of the reflecting sunset off of the DTLA buildings. By the time we got to this location in Chinatown, the sun was already being blocked behind a hill. The angle of these buildings were just right to pick up what was going on behind the hill though.

G'morning/afternoon/evening everyone in Googleville....
