HACK THIS PHOTO4,462*PLEASE READ - NEW FUN TO BE HAD!!!!* *Hack This Photo* _Our Photo.  Your Spin._ *(Open for the entire week)* Welcome to a special edition of @116361882895448900841!  The photo editing game where you take our photo and twist it, turn it, crop it, chop it, texturize it, pixelize it, make it your own.  Then post it for all of G+ to see!

We'll let this snippet from their About page do the talking... _This project started long, long ago in a faraway land when photographer Ken Rathke felt that his creativity needed a boost one rainy day. It began as a a fun experiment with creatively processed images of California and blossomed into a weekly foray to exciting destinations - all virtually of course on the Artistic Google Magic Bus!_ _So where can we find travel pictures for screen capture and creative processing? Google Maps - Street View is perfect. It's Frugal National Geographic for those of us that like to dream. The challenge is to find the right angle, subject matter, cropping, composition and presentation._ _We wanted the images to have a certain raw quality that was already there, but hidden until brought out by the creative mind of the Artistic Googler._ To Play: Tonight we're giving you two options of playing. You can either simply HACK the photo we're supplying by clicking on the link below: https://plus.google.com/photos/116361882895448900841/albums/5796967343539305697/5796967346267396802 Note that the image supplied is based on the Google Street View and is copyright Google.

But how do we actually get to the Street View images of the reef?... For now, the only portals to Street View of the reef appear to be here, but once you're in, you can use the GSV navigation controls and arrows._ http://maps.google.com/help/maps/streetview/gallery.html#!/ocean _On this page, be sure that you select a site in the Great Barrier Reef to explore because there are other reefs in other parts of the world shown here also and the cognoscenti know that Hawaii isn't part of Oz..._  Remember that this is a speed hack, so open the shot in the editor of your choice, start your favorite song, and have at it!  When the song is done, so are you!

Are you ready for our next tour?

The Golden Triangle - June 29 - July 12, 2015

Artistic Google celebrates the hustle and bustle of three cities: Los Angeles, New Orleans and Mexico City.

Los Angeles - "City of Angels", is a paradise for tourists who throng to Hollywood, Venice Beach,  Sunset Strip, Rodeo Drive, Disneyland, Japanese Garden, and much more. Seek out LA's huge selection of street murals! 

New Orleans - "The Big Easy", home of jazz, is one the oldest cities of USA and has an diverse atmosphere rich with French, Creole, and other cultures. Enjoy the unique architectural styles reflecting the city's historical roots and multicultural heritage. The famous French Quarter is a treat for artists. Pay a visit to Superdome, museums, the zoo, and of course the stunning views of the Mississippi River.

Mexico City is one of the oldest cities in North America and biggest metropolis in the world. Founded in the 12th century, the city is full of historical buildings and landmarks. It is also known as the City of Palaces. Visit the Plaza de la Constitución, the Cathedral, "El Angel" monument, Basílica de Guadalupe, and Coyoacán— the Colonial Arts district which was home to Frida Kahlo, Leon Trotsky, and Diego Rivera.

If you need more inspiration, have a look through our photo albums. We have visited California every year since 2012, and the artistic team went to New Orleans/Louisiana and Mexico in 2013.

If you've never participated in Artistic Google and would like to, check out our "About" page to find out how. (Jamal and Jan).___

Theme: Exploring Africa

For +Artistic Google curated by +Jan McCartney +Rob Robinson +Patrick Sheeran and +Jamal Masood (me).

Queen's Palace (officially Manjakamiadana Rova) is a landmark building in the Rova (royal palace complex ) of Antananarivo, Madagascar. The original palace was built in mid 19th century and was made wholly in wood. Later, as a reinforcement, stone casings was erected around the original wooden structure. The entire complex was severally damaged due to a fire which broke out on the night of 6 November 1995 and all that remained of the original buildings were the stone shells of the Queen's Palace and the near by royal chapel. The complex is gradually being rebuilt. (Wikipedia - https://goo.gl/nePdVl)

To +Artistic Google  Theme: Africa

Hartbeespoort Dam
GSV found here  : https://goo.gl/maps/kWX6H

"Hartbeespoort Dam (also known as Harties) is an arch type dam situated in the North West Province of South Africa. It lies in a valley to the south of the Magaliesberg mountain range and north of the Witwatersberg mountain range, about 35 kilometers west of Pretoria. The name of the dam means "pass of the hartebeest" (a species of antelope) in Afrikaans. This "poort" in the Magaliesberg was 'n popular spot for hunters, where they cornered and shot the hartebeest. The dam was originally designed for irrigation, which is currently its primary use, as well as for domestic and industrial use"

Exploring Africa 

ArtyGooglers visited South Africa (https://goo.gl/zZvl3e) back in 2012. Now we are heading back to Africa but this time, our tour is not limited to a single country but encompasses the whole African continent.

Besides South Africa, Botswana, Swaziland and Lesotho, the Google Street Camera crew have travelled far and wide and have captured some famous/historical regions. Have a look at the Citadel of Qaitbay in Alexandria,  Abu Mena Monastery town, The Citadel and Coptic Museum in Cairo, the mighty Pyramids and the mysterious Sphinx at Giza Necropolis and the Pyramid of Djoser. Moving further south the camera crew have captured a multitude of views at Mt. Kilimanjaro. It's famed locations like Uhuru, Arrow Glacier, Lava Tower, Moir Hut, Shira Camp and Lemosho Glades are covered by orange dots (inside views - https://goo.gl/xFBKCC). Moving towards the Atlantic coast the Gombe National Park in Tanzania is now in GSV - the park is most famous as the location where Jane Goodall pioneered her behavioural research conducted on the Chimpanzees.

The GSV team has also visited the Island nation of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. It's Avenue of the Baobabs is one of the natural wonders of Africa.

And here is a bonus ! Although the beautiful Canary Islands have been traditionally, culturally and politically associated with Spain, geographically these are very much part of African Continent and are included in this tour.

So join us in exploring the unexplored African Continent. This is a four-week tour running from June 1 - 28. (Jan and Jamal)___
