Mykal Hall415,704+Jay Patel and +Varina Patel are here in Australia for a workshop in Port Stephens hosted by +Brent Mail on the 3-5 Jan 2014. I have twisted their arms to do a photowalk here in +Sydney on the 11 January 2014.  So lets show our guest the welcome the Sydney Photo Community has to offer. We will meet on the steps in front of the Sydney Opera House at 6.30pm and slowly make our way to Hickson Rd Reserve for sunset and then to the end point at Observatory Hill by 9pm. I have plotted a few photo opportunity locations along the route as well as public toilets that I know of.https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=zw_eAURDDMag.kLJfMBZmQ50o There are plenty of food outlets to grab a quick bite to eat at Circular Quay for the journey. I have walked the route in 1hr 40mins at a leisurely pace but you may want to stay at one location longer if you desire. That will be fine as long as we all get together at the start to greet Jay and Varina and then at the end point to say our goodbyes. Then afterwards if you still feel in the mood to chat over a drink we will be heading to The Hero of Waterloo (if there is only a small group) or the Harbour View Hotel (if there are more than the Hero can fit).I recommend catching public transport to Circular Quay or Town Hall but if you drive in there are a few parking stations within a short walk to the Opera House. I suggest downloading the "Cheap Parking App" from the Google playstore or iTunes. This will give you pricing options from closest or cheapest and links to get to them.I hope everyone has a great time during the walk socialising and remember you can approach Jay, Varina and myself at anytime to ask any questions.Please share this with anyone you may know who would want to join us. :))) Looking forward to see you all and don't forget the hash tag #PatelSydneyPhotowalk+Jay and Varina Patel Sydney Photowalk2014-01-11 18:30:00139

Lotus Carroll1,771,351This is the Event for our September 2013 Self Portrait Challenge: A Great Cell Phone Photo. Just because you use a cell phone doesn't mean your self portrait has to be of the "facebook style" mobile or reflection variety. That little guy has a camera inside it, so treat it like one!Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait using only a cell phone to capture and process (no computer software post processing!). Your photo must have been captured this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST September 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified.Tutorial & TipsNeed some tips and inspiration for this challenge? Have no fear! That's why we're here. :) The amazing +Mark Rodriguez made a tutorial about shooting cell phone photos to get you inspired - see it here: http://goo.gl/z3IZ23 He also posted a video of his process - see it here: http://goo.gl/vzcRHLRemember these Do's and Don'ts to get the best photo:*DO take the time to set up your shot thoughtfully.*DO invest time and effort and try more than once to get it right.*DO make sure your lens is clean.*DO take your photo in adequate light so it's not grainy, blurry, or dark.*DO put the cell phone down and use a timer - stop taking all your photos by holding the phone and pointing at yourself or a mirror.*DO try different angles for the best composition.*DO read the posts in our Tutorials Category and try the concepts and ideas you learn from them: http://goo.gl/uSUULE *DO try different apps and see what works best for you.*DO be aware of your background! It makes a huge difference! Is there junk in the room behind you? If yes, it's not a good place to shoot. ETC.*DO NOT just slap a filter or cheesy effect on and call it a day - take the time to try different edits and pay attention to the elements of your photo. *DO NOT point your phone at a mirror and take a reflection photo where we can see your phone.*DO NOT have your arms in the photo as you're holding the phone out in front of or above you.*DO NOT duckface.*DO NOT showcase your cleavage as the main subject.Here's a list of Photo Apps you can try out:SnapseedVSCOcamRetouch (cloning tool!)Camera+Camera!PhotoStudioPixlr ExpressAviaryInsPhotoPrizes1 Year of +September Self Portrait Challenge: A Great Cell Phone Photo2013-09-01 07:00:00180

Artists In The Plus1,833,483+Artists In The Plus and the world famous Village Studios in Los Angeles, CA bring you "Making Music In The Digital World featuring Grammy award winning producer +Val Garay  and singer/songwriter +Nikki Lang.Check out Village Studios at: http://villagestudios.com/This is an On Air event broadcasting LIVE on Youtube and here on the event page.Val Garay:Val Garay has produced and engineered records for Linda Ronstadt, Kim Carnes, the Motels, James Taylor, Dolly Parton…and more.  Starting out as a songwriter and performer, Garay soon gravitated toward working behind the scenes with artists as diverse as the Mamas and the Papas, The Buffalo Springfield to Seals & Crofts.It was at the legendary Sound Factory Studio in Hollywood that he became acquainted with the studio’s owner/operator, Dave Hassinger. Hassinger had established a reputation as one of rock ‘n’ roll’s premier engineers, having helmed many of the legendary Rolling Stones sessions, as well as early Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane albums. It was Hassinger who realized that Garay had a “great pair of ears,” and offered to teach him the finer points of the craft. Working with Hassinger for a year, Garay refined his technique and perfected the punchy bottom sound, guitar blend and mixing approach that distinguishes his work today.Garay truly made his mark early on, working with such artists as Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, Jackson Browne, The Four Seasons, Orleans, Donald Byrd and The Blackbyrds, Andrew Gold, JD Souther and Bonnie Raitt. It was in this key role that Garay helped to create and define what is still being referred to as the “L.A. Sound.” With the release and success of Ronstadt’s Heart Like A Wheel, Garay suddenly became one of the most sought after engineers in the business, known for creating never-before-heard sounds. Read more about Val Garay here: http://www.valgaray.com/vals-story/Nikki Lang:Starting her musical career as a singer/songwriter at the age of 12, by 15 Nikki Lang had appeared in clubs throughout Los Angeles as both a solo artist and with her band. Today, she has toured nationally and internationally, and has been featured on radio, television, and in major newspapers and magazines such as USA Today, Teen, and L.A. Daily News. Inspired by the authenticity of singer/songwriters Joni Mitchell, Alanis Morissette and Lily Allen. Nikki writes songs of self-discovery and empowerment that read like a handbook for young women coming of age.More about Nikki Lang at: http://www.nikkilang.com This event is sponsored by Westlake Pro for all your music needs, Village Studios - where Val Garay & Nikki Lang - "Making Music in the Digital World"2013-06-28 01:00:0066

Sydney on Fire27What?Fire twirling is a group of performance arts or disciplines that involve the manipulations of objects on fire. Equipment most commonly used includes staff, poi, fans, hoops, rope darts and skipping ropes to name a few.The current world record for the Most People Fire Twirling is currently set at 117 people. This event looks to SMASH that record by having 150+ participants manipulate objects on fire for a minimum of 3 minutes.Where?Miranda park on the corner of Sylvania Rd and The Kingsway will be our location for the  World Record. Settled within the Shire, this location ties our World Record attempt to the people and the communities who loved and supported Talin and his family through devastating times.Who?Sydney on Fire is a group of volunteers united by Talin. This group of volunteers have worked tirelessly to make this event a success. From a small group of organisers this event has grown to include circus societies, baton twirling clubs, members of the fire twirling communities and members of the public keen on learning how to twirl so that they too can participate. Those interested in participating should head to the How You Can Help page and register their interest. All participants will be required to read and understand the safety rules and demonstrate their ability to twirl competently.When?Sunday 11th of NovemberWhy?Talin, as with all children, was far too young to be taken from this world. Bear Cottage supported Talin and his family through the difficult times they had to endure. By sponsoring this event and Bear Cottage you are doing your part to help an organistation that helps kids and their families through nthe hardships of terminal illnesses. Warmth, comfort, strength, a safe-guard, passion and risk are all associated with the element of Fire. It is through fire that we remember the strength and beauty of a young boy and fortify our position as a wider community who safe-guards those in need.Fire Twirling Guinness World Record Attempt2012-11-11 17:30:0040

Scott Jarvie390,606UPDATE: it's online now: http://youtu.be/-DItFCAg4jM We like to call this a "PLUS ONE PARTY"Because people submit links to their albums and we look through the pictures and we plus one the pictures we like in the album.It's my way of giving quick feedback to people about which pictures really catch my attention out of their images. It's quick and yet helpful.Last time we looked at over 120 albumsLIVE PUBLIC HANGOUTYep it'll be a live public hangout again.Shorter and more awesome than last time.So if you LINK us an album make sure you know they will be on video and then on youtube. We're both really nice people and with people pictures we worry about commentary for fear they're related to you or something. But we may make commentary and you gotta be alright with that as well. The video won't be edited when it goes onto youtube.I'm basically saying: The easily offended need not applyTHEME = PEOPLE PICTURES+Susan Marinello and myself have a separate project going on where we're spending dozens of hours researching to find great photographers and create the most awesome list of "people shooters"https://plus.google.com/u/0/100962871525684315897/posts/UMBDiPKJqKaSo therefore we've made the theme this time to People pictures as well because that's what mood we're in.If you already have an album like that share it. Or maybe put together another one in the next 24hrs that you'd like us to go through. Professional work, weddings, families, kids, selfies, street candids, models etcJOIN INThis time we'll be linking the albums and having people join us as we go through the pictures... so you may be getting a lot more plus ones (eyeballs) than normal.FAQWe won't be looking at non-people pictures even if they're in the album.We'd rather not look at crazy large albums so try to keep them under 50 (but we can be a bit lenient)Please submit open/public albums specially since other people than myself will be wanting to view.Make sure you're following myself (+Scott Jarvie ) and +Susan MarinelloAlbum Viewing Party - People Themed (A Jarvie Production)2012-09-24 05:00:0078

It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion.To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks likeON AIRThis will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout.I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing.If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't.SPECIAL GUESTBecause I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things I will have my good friend and great photographer +Susan Marinello on the show to facilitate the discussion.She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well.We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access.DIRECTIONS1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album3.  IMPORTANT If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video.4.

Kelli Seeger Kim1,305,201It's +Karen Hutton 's birthday!  (okay, well - technically, it's September 7.  But +Kerry Murphy and I couldn't wait any longer!)Anyone familiar with Karen will attest to the fact that she is all about peoples' passions.  What drives them.  What's in their hearts.  What better gift to give to her, than to share with her images that we feel represent our passion/soul/heart!.  Images that truly represent who we feel we are now - or the journey we are on (or traveled), in search of personal growth.  Maybe you have an image of yours that represents a style of photography that you feel a deep connection with.

Gailen Mapes69,907Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera C-E - 24 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 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 11:04:42171000
Dubie Bacino107,050Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino (12th 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. -----------------------------------------When it comes to #CircleSharing, my practice is to share only two of my circles every month:  - ENGAGERS: this is a way of saying thank you to 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)FRIEND FILERIf you need more shared circles, check out the ones posted by +Friend Filer. If what you are looking for is to grow your audience, expand your reach on Google+ and connect with people on other social networks, I also recommend joining their community at http://bit.ly/1f6AUpH.MOON PHOTOGRAPHYTake a look at +Moonipulations, it's the place for all Moon lovers.

Gerard Blacklock23,700Gerry's Australian Photographers Circle Version 3Hey Aussie togs, this is a pretty big update to this circle from the last one, this time I have been more selective in the fact that inactive glus members get booted, the circle was over 600 and as such I needed to comply with 'the less than 500 requirement' hence culling was needed.Note, this is the only circle I share since I really have a interest in local content.Feel free to reshare as you see fit, the main purpose is to facilitate more engagement between local aussie togs.Please feel free to comment and let me know if you know anyone (or if you are indeed one) who is a quality, active and interesting Australian based photographer.Two great communities/themes to get involved with if you like Australia content is #photomaniaustralia +Photo Mania Australia and Australian Landscape Photography https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/1060822645285719679572014-08-13 02:56:2844714219

Rusty Ferguson54,564♥★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★Ripples of Love -- * Rebuild the Philippines *, V2 from +Rusty FergusonNew Version Updated: May 27, 2014★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★♥This is a circle that supports +Habitat for Humanity’s program to Rebuild the Philippines. To support this circle, you can share it or donate or both.Today was the first day of school in Tacloban. I learned that someone I’m very fond of that is in the second grade needs to bring a portable light to school!  They have no electricity so there are no fans either. Hard to ignore that and I don’t understand it but that tells us the need in the Philippines is still great. We can wait for the government to do it so we need to help as much as possible. These funds will not go to the government but to Habitat for Humanity who is building homes themselves.For some this will be a reminder. Please understand that A lot of people doing a little will have a huge impact. We are making ripples when we post on Google Plus, FaceBook, Twitter and other social media. Why not make those ripples mean something positive?When you make or share a post, those post spreads out across the Internet like tossing a rock into a pond. The Internet is an infinite pond, so our impact can also be as infinite as our zeal to support something worthwhile. What is a little? If only I could get more people to understand that $2.00 is enough if everyone participates we could easily build an entire home for a Filipino family as the cost is under $4500 to build an earthquake and super typhoon resistant home in the Philippines. A home much nicer than most Filipinos live in.If two dollars is all you can give than please give that. It’s enough! Some donated less than a dollar and that too is enough! Every drop expands the ripple.http://www.give2habitat.org/member/rustyf/haiyanHowever, I realize times can be hard. You may not have a dime tospare but you can still help. When you reshare this circle, others will see it.  Though you may not be able to contribute they may be able too. Or they may share it too. The ripple will grow.A week or so ago, I got an email from Habit for Humanity (HFH) requesting additional help for the victims of Typhoon Hiayan.Here is a portion of their email:♥★★★★★★★★★★★★Your commitment to help rebuild the lives of the families who were displaced by Super Typhoon Yolanda inspires me and my coworkers.  Because of you, Habitat has been able so far to repair 22,000 damaged homes and to start constructing the first 1,000 of the 30,000 houses it aims to construct for the Yolanda survivors.I'm writing to you right now -- exactly six months after the tragedy -- in behalf of the Yolanda survivors.  Most of the displaced families are still living in makeshift houses, tents, and evacuation centers.They are currently enduring a hot summer but soon it will be replaced by the country's often very wet season.  I urge you, therefore, to help us remind others about them.♥★★★★★★★★★★★★There was a PDF included that revealed this:♥★★★★★★★★★★★★It’s been six months since Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan), made its tragic landfall in the Philippines on November 8, 2014. Aside from the more than 8,000 Filipinos who died and are still missing, the typhoon affected…14 million FilipinosDestroyed or severely damaged more than a million homesWiped out or impaired millions of people’s livelihoods…And dreams.But there’s hope. You can support them by donating through >>>>> http://www.give2habitat.org/member/rustyf/haiyan(Additional options for donations b2014-06-02 12:07:07457161182152

Gailen Mapes64,497Hand Picked Photographers Circles -"Unknown or Other" Camera  C-E - 24 of 30Note: 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 May 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting April 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 +2014-05-24 10:51:501768210
Mario Rotta15,308This is a circle in which I included a lot of excellent photographers: but most of them start from pictures to create visual design effects. So, this circle may represent a list of people working on the edge between photography and art. I like that experimental edge :-)2014-05-22 06:00:41400016

For that reason, I have about 100 people in this circle that I would almost bet you will not share this circle. I also will not add everyone that shares my circle to my shared circles. I have a massive database of trolls and spammers. I am constantly updating that.  They are not here.  It includes about 4000 people.

To further improve on that complete your tagline and employment fields found in your profile. Instead of saying you work for IBM or Walgreen’s tell us something about you in that field.

What I want to know is what you are interested in on Google Plus.  You’re profile should tell us about what kinds of post you make.The other day, someone told me some of the people that add the circle will delete it. She’s right, they will. So what you need to do is engage with the people you add. Leave comments on their post. When you do your name shows up and if you keep doing it you will get their attention and even those that delete will keep you in their circles more often. Those that don’t, probably are not worth your efforts.Also, for those post that you like or think your audience (followers and potential followers) will enjoy, share those post. When you share another person’s post you should plus tag the person that shared and it and the person that originally posted it. If you don’t do this, they will likely never know you shared it. If they do know they might come by and plus or comment on your share. How do you plus tag? Type the plus sign and then without a space start typing their name. This works best if you add them to your circles before you plus tag them. As you type their name, G+ will offer suggestions of people on G+. When it finds the person you just circled, click their name and you’re done. Now they should get a notification that you mentioned them in a post and they can go straight to your post and view your profile. Google wouldn’t be showing us the number of profile views if it wasn’t important.

Matt loves Mikelle | Valentine Tx

There were a few things that surprised me while traveling through Far West Texas. One of them was noticing some striking similarities to rural Australia. Another was that places such as this morph into full on party destinations. I love that it's left in it's rusted state and loved all the more for it.

Busy Bee~

A couple months ago, while visiting my sister on the US/Canadian border, I spent a fair while capturing bees in her garden with my camera. We discussed at length the plight of these little creatures & how much our world depends on them. 

Pretty simple really - no bees = no food! Don't know 'bout you ...I'd rather deal with a few pests & keep the bees :)

A couple months ago, while visiting my sister on the US/Canadian border, I spent a fair while capturing bees in her garden with my camera. We discussed at length the plight of these little creatures & how much our world depends on them. 

Pretty simple really - no bees = no food! Don't know 'bout you ...I'd rather deal with a few pests & keep the bees :)

Sunrise Over Sea~

Sometimes it's the unexpected that satiates the heart.

This weekend I headed down to the beach to make pictures out of other peoples art. There's always such a great mix of beauty, humour, environmental awareness & abstract oddity featured at  #sculpturebythesea .

The crowds have grown to epic proportions ... even at 4 am - photographers abound!  As everyone staked their claim and clamoured for a sunrise shot I took the path less traveled and spent a moment just appreciating what nature so effortlessly offers up every day.

Great idea +Sassi Sassmannshausen!

#savedetroit

Normally I like to help with my tutorials, this time I have a different idea: (Please share if you like it)

Dear Amazon Founder/President Jeffrey Preston "Jeff" Bezos,

This is not a request for money, not at all. This is a request for support to help your customers in Detroit.

The Ford Foundation developed an idea for Detroit. I have a simple, but hopefully effective, idea to get money which might be otherwise be forgotten. My idea needs a strong payment system with a good engineering IQ, which Amazon certainly has.

1) The problem

The Ford Foundation need $816 million to save Detroit.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/08/us/finding-816-million-and-fast-to-save-detroit.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&module=first-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news&_r=0


2) The idea

Given the fact that many U.S. citizens have received a money gift-card, which they used most of, there is often a small amount still left on such a card. This little bit could make the difference.
If everyone would have a simple option to simply donate that remainder to a good cause, huge amounts of money could easily be collected. 


3) The missing link

Imagine, on one's Amazon site, an interface where one could choose what cause one wants to support, and after typing in the gift-card number, the remainder on the card could be offered to the cause. Wouldn't that be simple and safe? A "1-2-3-step process"; quick, safe and simple. These money gift-cards are often otherwise useless for "real" shopping with the only few dollars left on them.

If one likes to get a donation receipt, just use the provided e-mail field and a pdf is submitted to that address.


Mr. Bezos, all I ask for is something that Amazon does already for Kickstarter, but in a different way, to help people to overcome obstacles.
I do not ask for anything in return, certainly not for any money for myself: I just like to help. Detroit would be certainly a good cause.

If you have a minute, please let me know if there is a way to get this done. I certainly will try to get Darren Walker, the president of the Ford Foundation, to support this idea. I think it is a win-win situation.

“There are often skeptics who have given up on American cities,” Mr. Walker said not long ago. “And this is a big mistake. We can’t give up on our cities.”  [nytimes.com]

Detroit's citizens would be the initial starters of the social media PR for the campaign. 

Kind regards,

Dr.V.Sassmannshausen Ph.D. ["Dr. Sassi"]

Los Angeles, CA___Great idea +Sassi Sassmannshausen!

From a couple years ago...

stumbled across this again & thought a few you might enjoy it :)

*Original footage was used for a series of commercials called Estrellas del Bicentenario, which was part of the Bicentennial celebration intended to reflect the natural beauty of Mexico to the world. Created by Pedro Torres, Diego Pernía and the Mates Group. It aired in 2010 on Televisa. Shot with Phantom & Red One Cameras.

"... Unofficial video made for the enjoyment of the people ღ"

Happy Birthday Week Miss Mini Muse!

This Monday my daughter joined the realm of double digits~  

She's a special little spirit who makes life much more complex & meaningful everyday.   Because she features in many of my artworks I wanted to publicly acknowledge her patience and (often unwitting) participation in my photographic adventures.  Although she's shown an interest in photography herself, and truly delights in the magical, storybook  transformations I create with her form, nothing says I love you more than leaving the camera at home and spending time together - just for us :) 
 
Hopefully in her adult years she'll look back on these moments with fondness & carry enough happy memories in her heart to see her through life's more challenging times.   Happy Birthday little Z x

Meet Me at the Square~

“Each meeting occurs at the precise moment for which it was meant. Usually, when it will have the greatest impact on our lives.” 
                                                                                  ~Fathoms of Forgiveness

A few years back, before I had a "proper" camera & editing software, I was really into this swirly "ShockMyPic" app.  Looking back, I have to laugh at the extent to which I'll delve into a "phase"... this was one of the better results from that period. Maybe I'll try painting it on canvas someday.  In the meantime,  very much looking forward to getting back to Melbourne - even if it's just for the day :)

Happy Freak Day form Sydneytown, Trick-or-Treaters! 

Sorry for the re-share, but it's all I've got.

Haven't  really done ANY self portraits this year,  let alone creepy ones! Tonight I'll be celebrating & honouring the true spirit of Dia de Los Muertos while doing my best to avoid all the sugary stuff. 

Hope you all have a safe time feigning wickedness wherever & however you choose to celebrate - or not :P

All the Best~

Raven's Curse~                                                   

Morrigan 
keeper of secrets
chooser of slain
weeps dark tears 
bloodied with pain

intuit in thought
with power of mind
the whispers of souls
become Valkyrie cries

who's battle is lost
who's life will be saved
her raven wings fetter
from heaven to grave 

cursed by deep sorrow
black drained the heart
for all who lay still
on the battlefields, of no tomorrow~ GC

Upward Swell~

I think Drew Houston was on to something when he said, "Instead of trying to make your life perfect, give yourself the freedom to make it an adventure, and go ever upward."

Well, can't say I've EVER strived for a perfect life, but seeking a sense of freedom & adventure certainly keeps it interesting ;)

Cascadia~

One of the things I most love about traveling is the change of perspective. Rising above it all and viewing our planet from the vantage point of a bird serves as a great reminder that the clouds constantly shift & the sun is always shining!  A magical thing happens when mountains become molehills.  Having said that, the flight OUT of this region was though a major storm. People were screaming & crying ( except my daughter who thought it was fun). In that instance I was faced with the reality that some storms can not be skirted. They  must be faced head on with no certainty of reaching a physical destination.  
And when we do arrive? Well, you already know the answer to that ;)

Have a great weekend everyone!

#seagullbuttbomb  

I immediately thought of +Robin Griggs Wood when this bird bombed my shot ! So, I decided to contriBUTe a little something to the #SeagullButtSaturday silliness for the #FunniestNonthemeOnGplus :P Just because, well, I thought it might make Robin smile just a tiny bit brighter :D 

Not only are you the initiator of the #GreatSeagullButtMasters and #SeagullSubversionSect while being a sparkling light amongst the #Gulluminati,  you have also proven yourself time & time again, to be a trusted friend, teacher and master of many things. From the  +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers to the +The Arcanum and the countless classes you've taught - those who've crossed your path are always the better for it.  Cheers to all that you are & do!

May the flocks be with you!

View from the Dock~

It's a strange and wonderful thing to return to the places of our youth and view them through adult eyes. Fortunately, this location has changed little as it's grown more meaningful (to me) over the years.

The Spirit Bird of Chisos Mountains~

At the heart of Big Bend Notional Park in the South of Far West Texas lies the Chisos Mountain Range. The mountains rise like phantoms to provide respite from the desert heat and shelter to “People of the Forest”.  During recent travels I stayed overnight at the base of this beautiful mountain. "The Window" view opposite was equally (if not more) stunning. I look forward to sharing some of those images with you soon :)

It seemed the Turkey Vultures circling overhead were a constant feature in the skies of both Oregon & Texas this year.  Time after time they flew into frame.  Eventually this made me curious about their symbolism, so I did a little research.

The Spirit Bird of Chisos Mountains~

At the heart of Big Bend Notional Park in the South of Far West Texas lies the Chisos Mountain Range.

It seemed the Turkey Vultures circling overhead were a constant feature in the skies of both Oregon & Texas this year.  Time after time they flew into frame.  Eventually this made me curious about their symbolism, so I did a little research.

Known as the GOLDEN PURIFIER these birds remind us that dirty jobs done in service of Mother Earth bear great gifts. The vulture does not hunt or expend excessive energy. Rather, when needed, it soars above limitation & seizes the resources already available. Patiently riding the wind & sensing the perfect moment to descend from higher awareness this creature is rewarded with sustenance as it purifies it's surroundings.   

Some would say,  when this bird appears "You are being asked to be patient with yourself and think things through. Take your time before making decisions and choose paths that support your higher consciousness and your heart. Use all of your resources combined with your past experience to approach the problem from a different angle..."  Sounds like good advice to me - I'll take it! 

For curious types ...

Spitting Rainbows~ 

Mercurial weather and everyday rainbows ... spring is on the way!

I love the way nature reminds us that it takes both sunshine and rain to reveal the full spectrum surrounding us. Seems to me, the gold at the end of a rainbow is the pool of light illuminating the beauty & value unearthed in a downpour.

Wherever you are today - I hope you recognise within your soul the worth of your own inner pot of gold. Spend it wisely ;)

Cheers from Oz!

Every year this book makes a difference . Let's hope 2014 is one of it's strongest yet.

Announcing Plus One Collection Volume III Fundraising Campaign

It's been a long journey, but we are fully focused on this now, and want to get the latest version of the #PlusOneCollectionIII book into your hands before Christmas. To help us get there, we created an Indiegogo crowdsourcing campaign that will provide us with the funds needed to publish the book. 

All the details are here - http://igg.me/at/plus-one-collection-iii/x/2020311

We also created a video explaining our project. You can find it here - Plus One Collection, Volume III 

We hope you can help up in two ways - first, contribute the funds for the book by picking one of the perks offered there. Second, please help us spread the word! Share the news here, share the news to your friends and family on other social networks and email. Share, share, share!

We set a goal to raise $30,000 in the next 30 days. We know it's a lofty one, but it will allow us to do two things - publish and ship the book to all campaign sponsors, and raise $5,000-10,000 for our charitable cause, Eliza O'Neill. 

The campaign is a fixed goal campaign, meaning, we do need to meet the goal of $30,000 before we receive any funds and can print the book. 

I know many of you who contributed photographs to the book want to know if your photo made it. We're still working on the selection, and will announce the list of contributing artists next week. Stay tuned! 

But in the meantime, we're happy to announce that the book publication process is back on track and with your help, let's make it happen and help Eliza!___Every year this book makes a difference . Let's hope 2014 is one of it's strongest yet.

Top of the Dune~

During my recent travels I was fortunate to re-visit a location and pastime from my youth along the Oregonian coastline. While most places seem smaller when you revisit as an adult, I'd have to say, running up and down the 12,000 year old 220 ft Cape Kiwanda Sand Dune felt as epic as ever :D

Alternate views from the top posted at a later date.
Until then~

Happy Weekend!

My cousin the climber~

Winter's been charting new territory since the day he was born.  If you're a climber you may want to check out his freshly established route directly up Hall Peak.

The Concert Hall~ 

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible."  ~Walt Disney

I love this Frank Gehry addition to the reinvigorated downtown Los Angeles area, such a fantastically unique design!  20 years ago one wouldn't dream of heading into the heart of the city for anything other than business. Great to see some of the original architecture being brought back to life for a new pulse on the old beat.
