Paul Pavlinovich21,824Each year I keep saying I'll get to Vivid Sydney but I never do. Well in 2015 I'm making this event so I'll have to. If you can join me please do. Accommodation expenses and transport will be up to you (hint stay in or near the cbd) be there for one or all days. I'll try and organise some Sydney photographers to host us Mexicans and I'll try and include a night trip to cockatoo island of it can be organised. Perhaps @113333047738251078279 might like to show us around or @106677033160092990257 do some light painting with us? Thanks to @107614843238833895006 for permission to use his image as the event header.Melbourne Photowalkers Go To Sydney Vivid 20152015-05-27 01:00:007  
Jeff Smith61,934Welcome to The Selfie Sunday Project for April 5, 2015 We are back! First thing you may notice is "Selfy" has become "Selfie", just a change to keep up with the more recognized spelling of selfie. A general theme for this week is *New Beginnings* , it's Spring and Selfie Sunday has returned so it seems to fit. If you can't stick to the theme no worries either, since we are freshly back and running any selfie you take is fine.  Please read this post for the guidelines and FAQ for Selfie Sunday. http://goo.gl/SKnkZ8 Your photo can be taken from Mar. 30/15 before the event up until 8:00 AM EDT Monday Apr. 6/15. Older photos posted will be removed from the event. Please only post one photo to the event and that photo should ideally be taken the weekend or the week prior to the event. Again, please no dipping into the archives. As always have some fun. Everyone is looking forward to some great selfies. Any questions, We have many moderators in the Art of Self Portraiture Community who can help you along the way. _ UPLOADING The event will be open for uploading photos at 9:00 PM on the Saturday before. Click the Add Photos button in the event to upload your images. This is a Public event open to all. Any questions, again please check the FAQs. http://goo.gl/SKnkZ8 Cheers, JeffThe Selfie Sunday Project2015-04-05 03:00:0061  
Lady Fran W8,190✰ *Embrace your inner rainbow* ✰ Late last year Melbourne hosted the Colour Run. It's now been announced that we'll be at it again in March 2015.  *Tickets on sale NOW!* Become a VIP and you can score a sweet deal!  www.thecolorrun.com.au/#vip   _No actual running required!_ Bring the kids. Bring the whole family! Don't bring the dog though. Please feel free to share the event. Note: this is not an ideal venue for photography. As much as you dearly want to capture the colour and fun, the dust is the natural to your expensive gear. You also don't really want to be carrying heavy gear for the walk. Bring a cheap point and shoot, bring your phone, whack everything in zip-lock bags and just have fun!Colour Run - Melbourne2015-03-01 08:00:004  
Lady Fran W8,190It's the start of the year.  There are new people joining the MPW community every day.  There are members itching to get out and do something.  There has been a rotation of mods. It's White Night and we're all going to need a drink before embarking on chaos and mayhem.   Sooooo ... *let's get together, shake hands, have a drink and talk about the year ahead.* _Venue confirmed:_ Dumpling World 608 Collins Street Melbourne -Call for venue ideas:- -Venue to be confirmed but if you have any ideas then post away. Y&Js and Fed Square venues are convenient but being White Night these will probably be bursting at the seams and potentially hard for a group. Do you know of somewhere else in the CBD that may be a good spot to descend on? Suggestions welcomed.-  _White Night:_ There is no formal photowalk planned for WN as the environment is not conducive for large groups; however, if you wish to use this event as a meet up or tag along with others please feel free to do so.  _All welcome!_ Feel free to invite anyone who you think  may enjoy the fun.MPW 2015 hidey-ho there neighbour2015-02-21 19:30:0010  
Paul Pavlinovich21,824See @109173756154545584645​ for all the information you need. No formal photowalk as it's too hard to keep a group together. it's really worth your time coming in to the city. My plan is to do Princes Bridge for sunset then lay low until midnight when I'll start to cruise. This plan may change as WN is covering a bigger area this year.White Night Melbourne2015-02-21 19:00:0041  
Paul Pavlinovich21,824A disposable snap camera view of Australia Day in Melbourne. You're welcome to bring your digital or film camera along with your disposable snap camera for this photowalk day. We'll stalk and be part of the peoples parade then wander the king's domain for snaps, food, cars, music and of course people. Snap Happy Australia Day Photowalk2015-01-26 09:00:0023  
Charles Strebor (Rantz)22,668I'll be celebrating my 50th trip around Sol in January 2015 and I would very much enjoy your company. We'll be starting at 4ish in the afternoon and going on late into the evening with fire spinning and other light play once the darkness arrives. Please bring yourselves, your cameras, a favourite dish that you'd like to share with others, your favourite drinks and any spinning toys you may have.  And orbs.  Don't forget your orbs. We'll be gathering where Warragul Road and Beach Road meet, down on the beach around the shelter near  the pier and groyne. With many thanks to @111907656136306657088 for the banner for this event - I'm sure you'll recognise the fire spinner from our #BrunswalkWithFire  from 2013. The Rantz and the Mario will be doing special fire play - just because we can. More details as they happen to be known. PS - There are *_THREE_* pubs nearby.A Celebration of the end of the 50th trip around Sol2015-01-17 16:00:0034  
Paul Pavlinovich21,824Now that summer is nearly here I think it's time to return to St Kilda for a summer meander. Have some munchies before the walk. We'll have the usual wander and click but if anyone wants to wander with me I'm happy to explain what I'm doing and why. If the light and sea are favourable I'll be using black glass for long exposures near the pier. I may use it again at Luna Park to make people "go away" for the facade shot. Depends how much light there is. features will include - beach front walk - sunset by the pier - a visit to the penguins at the end of the pier - Luna Park after dark - The espy facade and the two esplanades https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=z58dq65KDHgk.ka252xbBiZq4 Event updated with the meeting place (St Kilda Marina) and a link to the walk map.summer evening photo walk2014-12-05 19:00:0023

Sean Clark860A photowalk that (roughly) follows the path of last year's Maribyrnong walk and (less-roughly) stops at some of the sights of the soon-to-be-complete Regional Rail Link - City to Maribyrnong River Project. *the route* A rough route is here. Happy to take suggestions and make changes: http://goo.gl/ycHjMI Meet at Footscray Station, finishing at -the- -pub- South Kensington Station. It's a bit of a hike (~3km on foot), and covers about 1/2 of the project, but there are some highlights that have been built by RRL-CMR including: - The new Maribyrnong River rail bridge - built to complement the heritage bridge that it sits beside - Street art by Makatron at South Kensington Station There are also a few sights from the project's neighours: - The new Footscray Station (built by the adjoining project RRL-FDP) - The temple of the Heavenly Queen - South Kensington Skate Park - Lots (and lots) of +Cableicous action throughout the South Kensington area - Oh, and the fish-and-chip place at Conway - Must. Stop. There.Maribyrnong Photowalk2014-07-12 10:00:0010  
Charles Strebor (Rantz)22,668Ready for another spin?  Yeah - I thought you were. _I've had a change in plans: I'll be in Melbourne again sooner than expected.  Might as well have a bit of spin, yes?_ Come one - come all: you'll get to see @111907656136306657088 do her best not to become _BBQ Fran_ and as there are no bodies of water in the area so she won't be able to push me in the drink, though I'm sure she'll be able to convince me to have a drink. I look forward to seeing you there.Sunday Poi Play2014-05-11 16:00:0026

We'll take dinner in the Crown food court. After dinner we'll complete our waterfront stroll along towards Flinders & Swanston where we'll head up around Hamer Hall and The Arts Centre down to NGV where we might play with the windows if they're still on when we get there then we'll finish up for the evening. No route map. No way points. No leaders. No formalities. No give-aways. No competitions. Just a good old fashioned photowalk with friends.Saturday Night River front Crawl and Dinner2013-09-14 17:30:0030

paradigmblue8,282Welcome to #ParadigmShift #6 For #ParadigmShift #6 I'm sharing with you guys another one of my favourite images.  Back in early June, I was fortunate enough to be in Sydney on a week long work conference.  This just happened to tie in with the Vivid Sydney 2013 Festival.  For two weeks, the world renown Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge were lit up with all kinds of lights - it was a spectacular sight and event to attend.  I was really happy that I was able to escape at night on a few occasions after work and capture this event.  For my pics, visit my website here:  http://www.paradigmblue.org/website/portfolio/vivid-sydney/ After doing this for awhile, I decided to cross over the Harbour and venture out to the less crowded side at Milsons Point in North Sydney and look back towards the city.  It was so nice and peaceful on this side and the view was spectacular.  So I wanted to capture this feeling by taking an image directly under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and capture some of the skyline.  And it's this image that will feature in #ParadigmShift #6 This #ParadigmShift will be different from others as it's a long exposure night shot - light is a scarce commodity with his image and it's what you'll do with it that'll make it pop!  I'll post the before and after shot below and you'll see that I opted for a crop guided by the rule of thirds.  As for you, do whatever floats your boat! Other details are: Filter: ND4 Shutter: 151 secs ISO: 100 F /13 Shot on a Canon 6D (24-105mm) - focal length @ 28mm So there is plenty to pull out of the RAW file (linked below).  As always, I look forward to your edits.  Please play by the rules :) The Rules Step 1 Share this event to your public stream.  Failure to do so will result in your image being removed. Step 2 If I'm not in your circles, add me - @116923280194426907545  Step 3 Sign into #ParadigmShift #6 with a short comment  Step 4 Download the straight out of the camera RAW file from the link below and edit to your liking.  The only restriction is to avoid Photoshop and create a composite image Step 5 Add your edit to the event by entering a comment and clicking on the camera icon to the right of the comment dialogue box.  You are free to enter multiple edits into the event. Step 6 Show your appreciation to others by +1'ing and commenting on their work.  It's all about having a bit of fun. Please note: 1. I still retain ownership of copyright on the image as I took it :) 2.  Please don't provide a link to the original RAW file in your posts. 3.  And in the words of @116009459840268115761   "it's worth reiterating that this is not to establish the right or wrong way of treating and image, but more an exercise in exploring how different individuals would interpret the treatment of an image." - Couldn't have said it better - so I won't :) The event is good to go as you're reading this so don't wait and get to it!  Ends on Sunday 28/07/2013 @ 9:00pm Australian Eastern time and the RAW ParadigmShift #62013-07-26 09:30:0037

paradigmblue8,282EDIT:  This event is now closed.  A huge thanks to all who particiapted.  Be sure to add everyone below to your circles - they're all awesome :) Hi peeps, Welcome to #ParadigmShift #3 :) First of all, a massive THANK YOU to all who participated in #ParadigmShift #2 - it was so much fun seeing all the different post processing pics you came up with. For #ParadigmShift  #3, I'm choosing an image close to my heart.  A few weeks ago, my brother +Dave Tomek and I went on a photowalk around #PortMelbourne   #Australia  - such a beautiful place to photograph.  One of the best known locations is #PrincesPier  - it's an absolute photogs delight.  That is, if you manage to dodge all the fishermen and other photogs in the area :)  For the history of the place, check out the Wikipedia article here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princes_Pier The posts in the water are what used to be the extension of the original pier - it would've been huge as behind me still stands a rather large pier. The RAW file was taken during the blue hour: Filter: ND400 Shutter: 50 secs ISO: 50 F /13 Shot on a Canon 6D (24-104mm) - focal length @ 24mm So there is plenty to pull out of the RAW file (linked below).  As always, I look forward to your edits.  Please play by the rules :) The Rules - Share this event on your public stream.  My goal here is for all your circles to know about this and participate if they're interested.   - If the above is not done and a pic is submitted into the event, I have grounds to delete it.  That sounds harsh I know - but I want this thing to grow and get out there :)  It's a small thing to do for access to a RAW file to edit and submit. - Go nuts and edit, crop, process whatever floats your boat - bring out the best of the image according to how you see it.  But try to steer clear of using Photoshop to merge the image with others. - Please note, I still retain ownership of copyright on the image as I took it :) - Post you edit into the event using the "Add Photos" option in the upper right. - In addition to posting your edit into the event, post it on your public feed and tag me +paradigmblue so that I can find it.  Be sure to tag it with #ParadigmShift  - Please don't provide a link to the original RAW file in your public posts. - And in the words of +Debashis Talukdar " it's worth reiterating that this is not to establish the right or wrong way of treating and image, but more an exercise in exploring how different individuals would interpret the treatment of an image." - Couldn't have said it better - so I won't :) - The event is good to go as you're reading this so don't wait and get to it!  Ends on Sunday 05/05 and the RAW file will be deleted. - And most importantly have fun!  Be sure to add peeps who contribute to this into your circles - they're all awesome :) RAW FILE: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9MYbPF71WSeOXZ2T0h6RG1PQW8/edit?usp=sharing#ParadigmShift #32013-05-03 01:00:0043  
Charles Strebor (Rantz)22,668*First and Last Warning*: _There will be fire - your safety is your own responsibility_. I'd be chuffed if you would join me for a photo walkabout on Saturday, 27 April 2013 in Brunswick, Victoria. We will walk through a number of bluestone laneways, enjoying the street art and also stopping at a various locations for fire spinning and juggling by @111830327627461921997, @115027053902979628958 & @111514735588177976561. There are many pubs in the area and a decision (or decisions) regarding where to head to when the fire play has finished will be made during the walk. For those unable to arrive at the starting time, @111830327627461921997   will be broadcasting his location using Glympse (http://glympse.com/) so you can find the the group during the walk. Tripods are recommended for the fire play shooting as long exposure shots of 3 to 10 seconds are best for shooting this activity.  Recommendations for other camera settings will be offered at the time for those interested. http://goo.gl/tncmC  Brunswalk with Fire2013-04-27 16:00:0021  
Lady Fran W8,190*Your lovely hosts for this event will be:* @112471334785730222439  and @111907656136306657088  The effervescent @112471334785730222439 and I agreed that it is an important part of ANZAC Day to set aside some time to honour and respect all those lives touched by war and conflict. The Dawn Service at the Shrine is a beautiful and moving tribute to those who gave so much. Getting out of bed at a horrible hour, on what is normally a chilly April morning, is the very least of what we can do to pay our respects.  Following the somber tribute in the morning, we agreed that the call of coffee will be strong, and the need for food second most to that, and then ... the photographer in us all will be screaming to get out. Soooooo, we thought that we would plan a bit of a photowalk. The idea is as follows:  *Dawn - Service and sorrow* _6:00pm service_ This part of the morning will be purely about respect. This is not a photo opportunity, but a moment of reflection. Until the _Last Post_ and formal ceremony is complete, please avoid pulling your camera out. If you really can't hold back, then please arrange to get in early and capture the moment in private prior to the ceremony. The Shrine, the eternal flame, and the surrounding areas will be open and manned from very early.  *Meet up* _6:30am +/-_ ie after completion of the service 'Blue fountain' Corner of St Kilda Road and Southbank Blvd  Map ref: http://goo.gl/ClkBX *Coffee and feasting* _7:30am_ Following the dawn service, the intention is to hop a tram to Port Melbourne for a caffeine hit, and a hearty breakfast.  A table has been booked at _Cafe Zest_ for 7:30am  http://cafezest.webs.com/apps/location/ *Cameras at the ready* Once we are full charged, and our spirits a little higher, the intention is to spend the morning around Station and Princes Piers practicing some of our recent learning from the two ND/GND and long exposures events. Pack a tripod, filters, or any gear you want.

paradigmblue8,282Hi guys, Following the fun we had with #ParadigmShift #1 (see: https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/116923280194426907545/116923280194426907545/posts/MaFFcFyE1MX) I thought we may as well jump right into #2 :) Thank you to all the people who participated in #ParadigmShift  #1 - it was so interesting to see the way you guys approached post processing. For #ParadigmShift #2 I have a real treat for you guys.  It's my way of saying thanks to all of you who took the time to participate.  #2 will be a RAW file of one of my favourite pics - "underbelly of a bridge".  I chose this pic because I love it and can't wait to see what you guys come up with - going to be totally fun :) This time I'm setting this up as an event so you can upload your edits into the event so everyone can see what you guys came up with in one place. *The Rules* - Share this event on your public stream.  My goal here is for all your circles to know about this and participate if they're interested.   - If the above is not done and a pic is submitted into the event, I have grounds to delete it.  That sounds harsh I know - but I want this thing to grow and get out there :)  It's a small thing to do for access to a RAW file to edit and submit. - Go nuts and edit, crop, process whatever floats your boat - bring out the best of the image according to how you see it.  But try to steer clear of using Photoshop to merge the image with others. - Please note, I still retain ownership of copyright on the image as I took it :) - Post you edit into the event using the "Add Photos" option in the upper right. - In addition to posting your edit into the event, post it on your public feed and tag me +paradigmblue so that I can find it and tag it with #ParadigmShift - *with a link to the event - and not to the original RAW file.* - And in the words of +Debashis Talukdar " it's worth reiterating that this is not to establish the right or wrong way of treating and image, but more an exercise in exploring how different individuals would interpret the treatment of an image." - Couldn't have said it better - so I won't :) - The event is good to go as you're reading this so don't wait and get to it.  Ends next Friday and the RAW file will be deleted. - And most importantly have fun!  Be sure to add peeps who contribute to this into your circles - they're all awesome :) *RAW File* https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9MYbPF71WSeWnJZbHJ4ajF3MGM/edit?usp=sharing#ParadigmShift #22013-04-12 15:00:0014  
Paul Pavlinovich21,824Join us for another anniversary walk with all the usual and plenty of new faces from the Melbourne Photowalkers community. Walk starts and finishes at Collingwood Station. Food is available at The People's Market (expect to be there around 3pm) and after the official walk end at back near the town hall many of us will continue to the The Retreat Hotel for dinner and  beer. Here is the route https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=212211852192101909727.0004d81878e69719df99d&msa=0&ll=-37.803952,144.990327&spn=0.016598,0.033023 It's not as long as it looks. Note I've changed the times to ensure we can get into The People's Market which is absolutely brilliant. We'll be going past loads of laneways with amazing street art which are not marked on the route (a few are). If you want to make your walk longer feel free to diverge down the laneways. Suggestions: . There is an urbex site - use commonsense and make your own choices . Down the laneways travel in at least pairs - this is a fairly dodgy place sometimes - this means you Margaret Wong!Google Anniversary Photowalk *COLLINGWALK*2013-03-23 03:00:0055

I intend (if I'm not too rooted) to visit a few other attractions up the other end of the city including the torchlight tours of Melbourne Museum. There are extended public transport options in and out of the city on the night.White Night2013-02-23 09:00:0035  
Day in the life of G+5,644*Our 1/4 annual G+ LeapYear Day Photography Project*  Some of you may recall, last year we held the first ever A Day in the Life Photography Project,  _G+ LeapYear 2012 A day in the life of G+_ Our 1/4 annual G+ LeapYear Day Photography Project *Introduction* What is this Leap Year Project? A project to capture a small snippet of the lives and the world from the perspective of everyone here on G+. Everyone will take a picture of their small piece of the world on the 29th Feb 2012 and share it with the whole G+ community. This will create one never before seen photographic record of what the world looked like on one specific day in time. A record that forms a kind of time capsule that we can use to look back on one frozen moment in time. *How do I get Involved?* Simple: During the week of Feb.23 - Mar.1 2013 Take a Picture (or several) Upload that picture(s) to Google+ Share your picture(s) publicly Include the tag: #G+LeapYearDayProject2013 + Mention this page *What should the picture be of?* Absolutely anything, as long as it meets the terms of service of Google+ But if you want some inspiration please use any of the Daily Photography Themes The picture doesn't have to be some glorious ground-breaking event. The idea is to simply capture something going on around you at any point on that day. *Do I need to be a professional photographer?* No, this is for anyone to partake in More Information A G+ Community Photography Project Feb. 23 - Mar. 1 2013, *everyone* post a photo showing something that expresses you, how you see your world or G+.  Choose a specific time or just snap off a quick shot. Geo-Tag it so we can see where everyone is from (This is entirely optional). Have fun, no rules except, good taste, legal, and work safe please!*Our 1/4 annual G+ LeapYear Day Photography Project*2013-02-23 06:00:0021

Melbourne Photowalkers1,203*UPDATE* Okaaaaay! I have just made an executive decision. Dictator FMW is stepping up.  I have just wandered through the city. It's hot and steamy and uncomfortable. It's been drizzling steadily all afternoon. According to the BoM tomorrow is expected to be scattered showers and thunderstorms in the morning developing to heavy rainstorms and thunder in the afternoon.  Soooo, I looked for the nearest spot to our originally planned location, and that could seat 16+ people. Leave your picnic rugs and sausages at home I think folks. *NEW VENUE* - Transport in Fed Square. Table booked for midday under my name (Fran W).  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- _Venue_ -Alexandra Gardens, by the banks of the Yarra- -See map for more specific location - http://goo.gl/APwsF- *Update - see above* This spot has both public bathrooms and BBQ facilities There are some picnic tables scattered around but limited. Being a popular picnic spot, and just a few weekends before Christmas, this location is likely to be uber popular. In order to stake our claim, it'll be worth having some people turn up early. _Catering_ BYO everything. Aim to please yourselves, but with the idea of being social, sharing/communal/etc.  _Other stuff_  - This is a family affair, bring your partner, spouse, kiddies for a day in the sun. - BYO rugs, tables, chairs, tents, whatever else one requires for the day.  - If you have a photowalk t-shirt, wear it! _Share the event_  As circulation of events is limited, please be sure to pass this on to others who may be interested. +Melbourne Photowalk Family Christmas Picnic2012-12-15 12:00:0021  
Lady Fran W8,190*Can you make an ordinary running kitchen tap look fab?* This challenge came about following a conversation in a thread with +Megan Huddle (thanks for the inspiration babe!).  Whilst on a recent trip to New Zealand, I got my very first 'soft milky water' shot of a stream, and purely by luck. I had no ND filter, no tripod, just good light and a little bridge to lean the camera on. See here - http://goo.gl/Vpz58 I'm now obsessed with trying out this kind of photography wherever I go. I'm searching for streams, waterfalls, beaches, you name it. +Megan Huddle suggested I could make anything look good (uber flattered).  .. and so the challenge came about. *A camera, an idea, and a plain old running tap in the kitchen sink.*     _Can you make it look fab?_    I think you can.  *Work your magic. Show us what you’ve got.* *Any camera, and setting, any processing.* *It’s all open to your imagination and creativity.* Sooooo, why not give it a go?  There's no prizes I'm afraid. No rewards. (Unless some super generous sponsor out there wants to throw something in as incentive.) Otherwise, it's all about the *glowing recognition, compliments and praise from your G+ peers.*  _Due date: 11:30pm, -Friday 8 December- Saturday 9 December_  ------------------------------------------------------------------------- PS PUBLIC EVENT! - Apparently one can't invite large numbers of guests to an event (ie big circles), soooo, please feel free to forward this around and get people involved. =)Photo challenge - A simple tap2012-12-08 13:30:0072

We'll be shooting the sunset (hope for a good one!) then wandering along the North bank of the mighty brown slug until we reach the pedestrian bridge at Flinders St Station where we'll cross to the South Bank for more wandering.

Photo Processing Challenge387*Photo Processing Challenge 4/2012 is starting now* Some people have already asked about the next challenge and here we go! Previous photo was a little bit "full of nothing", but this time you really need to use your skills to make this look great! This is a photo of a museum steam engine shot during our National Railways museum train day 2012. The train is so beautiful but the landscape not so you have a possibility to make it look totally different if you feel so - or leave it as is and just process the whole photo look more natural. It's all up to you to decide! We've had some feedback and people were hoping to be able to download the JPG version of the photo. This time it's possible so check carefully whether you want to download the DNG version or the JPG version. As always, we're hoping that you also take some time to comment and "plus" other's photos - and *_do not forget to explain how you built your version of the photo!_* Have fun!

The cafe is open until 3:00pm on weekends. So let's make an event of it. Come, eat, drink, be merry and take in the imagery at your leisure.  If people are still keen, and feel like walking off brunch, then perhaps an impromptu photowalk of the local area will follow (after we're kicked out of the cafe).  FMWCrowdification Day2012-08-18 11:30:0017

No make-up weekend
·················° 💄° ················
It's Friday night, the working week is over. Tomorrow it's jeans, t-shirt, and household domestics. That means no curling iron, no make-up, no jewellery. I'll think about a bra, but that decision hangs in the balance. Be warned door knockers, the inner zombie that hides behind the lippy and mascara during the week has been let loose.

Many moons ago I conducted a poll on this image; colour or B&W. Thanks to Collections the poll has been alive and active of late. It would seem that of the two hundred +/- voters, colour is the way to go for zombie Wolverine.

No make-up weekend
·················° 💄° ················
It's Friday night, the working week is over. Tomorrow it's jeans, t-shirt, and household domestics. That means no curling iron, no make-up, no jewellery. I'll think about a bra, but that decision hangs in the balance. Be warned door knockers, the inner zombie that hides behind the lippy and mascara during the week has been let loose.

Project 26 B&W
Week 11 - Self
~~~~~  ✿  ~~~~~
“A person is, among all else, a material thing, easily torn and not easily mended.”
― Ian McEwan
Vulnerable. Imperfect. Self conscious. Frightened.
Underneath the facade we are all hiding the fragility beneath.

I shudder when I read that a project theme is self portrait. If there is one thing I love about being behind the camera is just that... I'm behind it. Safe. Protected. This fortnight though, I decided that if I was going to do this, then I'd cut deep. No blurred reflections, no abstract body parts, no hats and makeup. Just me. An image without the gloss. Do I like what I see? Nope. Do I see all the bits that need fixing? Yup. So why let everyone else see that?... Because they already do.

The gorgeous, loving people in my life see me no matter what mask I put on. Those who judge, those who hate, are the people I don't need in my life. It's the people who see your soul that you keep. Know this, if you are in my life it's not because I don't see the imperfection, it's because I do! I love you and the beautiful imperfections that make you special and unique.

Something a bit softer to balance out the recent zombie posts, and warm to counter Melbourne's grey and wet morning. And would you look at those eyelashes! The envy of all the girls.

Many moons ago I conducted a poll on this image; colour or B&W. Thanks to Collections the poll has been alive and active of late. It would seem that of the two hundred +/- voters, colour is the way to go for zombie Wolverine.

A big thanks especially to +Leigh Wheeler  who threw this challenge my way. We'd seen similar images like this before and I've always muttered something like 'must try that'. When 'floral' came up for this week's theme Leigh added the extra inspiration and set this challenge for me, and I just happened to have the perfect model on hand. Thank you sweet niece and ballerina +Maddy Burns  ♥

“To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man's injustice to woman. If by strength is meant brute strength, then, indeed, is woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man's superior.

You are all perfect in your own way and you inspire me to capture the gift you give every day by being you. ♥

Fly away

Spend all your time waiting, for that second chance,
for a break that would make it okay.
There's always some reason, to feel not good enough,
and it's hard at the end of the day.
I need some distraction, oh beautiful release.
Memories seep from my veins, let me be empty and weightless,
and maybe I'll find some peace tonight.
In the arms of the angel, fly away from here. 
~ Angel, Sarah McLachlan ♫
There are times in life when flying away from the world is needed. Flying into the arms of somewhere safe, secure and at peace. To a place where the stresses of the world can be forgotten. Where your soul can recharge and you can find the strength you know is inside of you. Then you take a deep breath, return to reality and jump back into it all with both feet.

SHINY NEW FEATURES
You know you want a piece of it. If it's new, and shiny, and looks all perty like, then you want in on that. Especially considering it was only released today and you would be up there with the first on board, because let's admit it, we all want to be at the front of the line. So check it out, G+ Collections. The scope is endless. I'll fire through a couple of my own efforts shortly so you can see how this could really be a bit awesome for you. ☺

Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.___SHINY NEW FEATURES
