HACK THIS PHOTO4,473*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! Everyone is welcome to play – no formal training, expensive software or previous experience is required to join us.  Use an app on your phone, the G+ photo editor, GIMP, Lightroom, CS6 – it’s up to you. Tonight we're joining forces with the fantastic @104600718104833273883 folks to explore the land down under, *Queensland* and the *Great Barrier Reef*!!! So what is @104600718104833273883, you ask? 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?

Maritime Vacation (July 27 - August 9, 2015)

With the summer season in full swing, we thought it might be time for a Maritime Vacation to the Northeast US and Canada.  We start our Vacation at Rhode Island and work our way north.  Next is Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine in the US. From Maine we head into Canada and visit New Brunswick, Nova  Scotia and Cape Breton, and Prince Edward Island.  For our final destination the Magic Bus magically crosses the Gulf of St. Lawrence to Newfoundland. 

Our resident Artists will find plenty of variety, from the big cities to quaint fishing villages.  Parks, seascapes and beautiful natural scenery are plentiful if that is more to your liking. You can explore the coastline or take a tour inland within each of these states and provinces.

Come and take a Maritime Vacation with Artistic Google and show us what you have found.  

If you have never participated in Artistic Google and would like to try turning Google Street View captures into digital creations, check out our "About" page to find out how. (Patrick, Jan)___

"Villalobos Rescue Center" by +Jan McCartney 

Saving New Orleans' dogs since Katrina. (Jan)

"Villalobos Rescue Center" for +Artistic Google curated by +Rob Robinson +Jamal Masood +Patrick Sheeran and me.

From New Orleans Ninth Ward, Villalobos Rescue Center is a rescue, rehabilitation and placement facility for abused and abandoned Pit Bulls. Relocated from L.A. to LA, Villalobos does not say no to abandoned dogs - dogs tied to their front gates, turned loose on their street, dogs chained up and abandoned in empty lots where houses once stood prior to Katrina…Truly the City of Second Chances.

The next stop in the 3 city tour ( LA, NOLA, Mexico City) for +Artistic Google is Mexico City.  This is the the Palacio de los Desportes or the Palace of Sports.  It hosted the Mexico City Olympics in 1968 and was the site of basketball and volleyball.  It now mostly is used for concerts and an occasional sporting event.  GSV caught these guys working the lights and I thought it was interesting.

St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans is often called "The Jewel of America’s Grand Avenues". Several of historic and architecturally interesting mansions built in late 19th and early 20th Century are located there. Depicted here is reportedly the biggest mansion on the avenue.

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.
