HACK THIS PHOTO4,459PLEASE READ - NEW FUN TO BE HAD!!!!Hack This PhotoOur Photo.  Your Spin. (Open for the entire week)Welcome to a special edition of +HACK THIS PHOTO!  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 +Artistic Google folks to explore the land down under, Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef!!!So what is +Artistic Google, 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/5796967343539305697/5796967346267396802Note that the image supplied is based on the Google Street View and is copyright Google.

Peter Fraterdeus867For your Google+ enjoyment ;-) This circle has people who post about art.I haven't seen all of the posts, or know the people, but they've been curated into the original circle by the person who initially shared the circle.It's a good way to get something of value into your home 'stream'. If you want to follow a particular person, you can add them to your own circles.You can always remove this circle, or edit how much of the content from that circle shows up in your stream...2012-09-17 11:53:54216807

Many of the people in this circle are among the most interactive people on G+. Contribute top their themes, get to know them,  I think it will enhance your G+ experience.Best Regards+Charles Lupica ────────The circle has been checked for accuracy by most of the involved curators.  I would also like to thank +Steve Gill +Jason Borg +Manuella Betaille for their help in checking the existing themes.There are now over 400 themes, theme pages, and perhaps as many as 1000 curators but not all themes are created equal. I often talk about what it means to me to curate a theme and how I view things. To me, the best themes are the ones that have highly interactive curators. The vast majority also have a page to compliment their theme. A theme page is a great place for the curators to share information about the theme and to list the name or names of the people currently curating the theme. IMHO, a good theme page should provide information about the theme, how to participate, and who is curating the theme.  Most theme pages share some of the best work.  A few share all submissions.There are many themes that were created and then abandoned by their creator so I wanted to know, "Which themes rock?". I asked the G+ community to tell me which themes have highly interactive curators and an active community. This circle is based on community feedback and my personal view of what it means to have a theme that rocks.  ────────A good place to start if you are new to themes is perhaps the about page of +Monochrome Monday or the about page of +Daily Photography Themes +Daily Fine Art Themes.  If there are any themes that you feel rock that aren't mentioned, be sure to add a comment to this post, include the name of the theme, what day of the week the theme takes place or daily, the name of the page, and the name of the curators.  If there is no page, please state this.  Themes without a page are less likely to be listed but some very interactive themes don't have a page. 2012-08-29 13:45:173048691106
Billy Wilson417,065Virtual Travelers CircleThis circle was created of those who have an interest in exploring the world using Google Maps/Earth/Hangouts/Street View from the comfort of their own home. I made this circle based on nominations, people claiming they had an interest, those who were part of +Artistic Google, and those who are part of +Virtual Photo Walks™. I hope this circle helps strengthen and grow a community around this interest, so please consider sharing this post with your friends. You can add these people to your circles by clicking "View Shared Circle". +Artistic Google is a theme on G+ where people find spots in Google Street View and capture them and edit them. +Virtual Photo Walks™ is something started by +John Butterill and +Bruce Garber that uses Google+ hangouts to bring people to locations around the world they normally wouldn't be able to get to.  #CircleShare   #GoogleStreetView   #Google  2012-08-23 19:00:38102212937
Jeff Sullivan341,904Daily Photography Themes on G+: Theme Page Circle v2.0Daily photo themes are a great way to share your best work.  Many of the theme creators/curators also maintain a Google+ page on the theme, so following the daily theme pages can be a great way to find creative work by others for enjoyment and inspiration.  Some of the pages highlight some of the curator's favorite participant contributions, others are set up for participants to tag the page in their photo and automatically have their work appear in the page's stream.  Lists of the daily themes, with notes on any participation details, are maintained by the following people:+Eric Leslie  - http://ericleslie.com/guides/daily-photography-themes-googleplus/+Kol Tregaskes  - http://bit.ly/kolgplusphotodailyhashtags+Ray Bilcliff  - http://trueportraits-nature.com/2011/11/g-photographers-daily-themes/Typically to participate you simply Include the theme hashtag, in the text of your post, and others can find it by clicking on the hashtag or in searches.  If you want interaction though, don't sit around waiting: you get what you give.  Be the interaction you want to see!  Or just browse photos and get inspired.  There's no "one right way" to enjoy Google+; interaction isn't a prize to win or something to compete for.  I only mention it in the context of making new friends with similar interests.  Over the course of the past year, I've met a lot of fun and inspiring people, many of whom I now get out and shoot with regularly, and others I hope to meet and shoot with some day.  Whatever you're here for, a photography theme can categorize images in ways which may help you find the types of images you'd most like to see or photographers you might like to meet.I've found 394 themes so far, but if I've missed some, please mention them in the comments and I'll include them in a future update!2012-08-10 01:07:41394161339

Jeff Sullivan131,363Daily Photography Themes on G+: Theme Page Circle v1.0Daily photo themes are a great way to share your best work and to find creative work by others for enjoyment and inspiration. Many of the theme creators/curators also maintain a Google+ page on the theme.  Some of the pages highlight some of the curator's favorite participant contributions, others are set up for participants to tag the page in their photo and automatically have their work appear in the page's stream.  I like to discover new photographers and to get inspired by great photos, so for the +#SelflessSunday Theme on G+ page I look for a few of those types of posts to share, rather than have the page simply duplicate-post all contributions (and mirror the "see all posts" functionality that clicking on the hashtag already performs).  I'd also be concerned that auto-posting all contributions might set the page up for a high volume of self-promotional spam.  I'm not trying to advocate on approach though, if any curators would like to offer how/why they manage their pages in a certain way, that's fine, I'm open to suggestions.  I also like to catch up on curation later in the week when I can see all posts, and the ones I highlight can be discovered by community members who weren't online when the original post flew by on the stream.Lists of the daily themes, with notes on any participation details, are maintained by the following people:+Eric Leslie - http://ericleslie.com/guides/daily-photography-themes-googleplus/+Kol Tregaskes - http://bit.ly/kolgplusphotodailyhashtags+Ray Bilcliff - http://trueportraits-nature.com/2011/11/g-photographers-daily-themes/Just Include the theme hashtag, like today's #SelflessSunday, in the text of your post, and others can find it by clicking on the hashtag or in searches.  If you want interaction though, don't sit around waiting: you get what you give.  Be the interaction you want to see.  Or just browse photos and get inspired.  There's no "one right way" to enjoy Google+; interaction isn't a prize to win or something to compete for.  I only mention it in the context of making new friends with similar interests.  Over the course of the past year, I've met a lot of fun and inspiring people, many of whom I get out and shoot with regularly, and others I hope to meet and shoot with some day.  Whatever you're here for, a photography theme can categorize images in ways which may help you find the types of images you'd most like to see or photographers you'd like to see more work from.I was having some trouble finding photography theme pages, so if I've missed some, please mention them in the comments and I'll include them in a future update.2012-07-08 16:02:281884116

Like the neighbouring Holland, the the town of Brugge in West Flanders Belgium, once had several windmills. However today only four of these windmills survive and this is one of these four. I am not sure about its name, whether it is Sint Janshuis windmill or Bonne Chiere windmill. Perhaps Hazel can throw more light on it.

Ypres Cloth Hall
#artisticgoogle #googlestreetview  

A tour of BENELUX Countries under the able guidance of +Hazel Caplen 

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

At the suggestion of our expert guide Hazel,  I visited the "In Flanders Fields Museum" at Ypres, Belgium. Unfortunately there are no Inside Views, however I was very impressed by the building, a floor of which houses the museum. The building known as The Cloth Hall (Dutch: Lakenhal or Lakenhalle) is a medieval commercial building and was one of the largest commercial buildings of the Middle Ages, when it served as the main market and warehouse for the Flemish city's prosperous cloth industry.

The original building built mainly in the late 13th century was badly destroyed in the artillery fire which devastated Ypres in World War I. After the end of war it was meticulously rebuilt to its original condition. (Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ypres_Cloth_Hall)

Menin Gate in the Ypres Salient (Belgian Flanders) is a memorial to missing of the First World War who were killed in the Ypres Salient. It marks the starting point for one of the main roads out of the town that led Allied soldiers to the front line. Ypres Salient was the scene of the one of the bloodiest battles of WW-1. British and Commonwealth soldiers often passed through the Menenpoort on their way to the front lines with some 300,000 of them being killed in the Ypres Salient. Of these, 90,000 of these soldiers have no known graves. Stone Panels in the Hall of Memory of the Menin Gate contains names of 54,896 Commonwealth soldiers who died in the Salient but whose bodies have never been identified or found.

"The magic bus has visited Belgium and the Netherlands before, but with the recent addition of Luxembourg to the street view map this is a great time to tour the Benelux countries.

I used to live in Luxembourg before moving to Belgium, so I'm excited to visit of some of the things I remember, and to see your interpretations.  As well as the old city of Luxembourg, there's some fabulous countryside, the region of "Little Switzerland" (http://goo.gl/cVw8Rq), vineyards along the Moselle, some more industrial areas to the south.  Oh and banks of course.  Lots of banks ;)

Moving north into Belgium, you may get some ideas from my previous introduction (http://goo.gl/G9RN4u).  Have a peek at our 2012 Belgium album too: http://goo.gl/TTu89f

In the Netherlands there is no shortage of subjects amongst the old buildings, canals, windmills.  Maybe you'll find some colourful bulb fields. You can check out our Netherlands album from 2012 at http://goo.gl/pM3PtC

This should be a fun trip!"

You can't just stop at one when the views are this spectacular. (Jan)

For +Artistic Google  ...A set of three views of Lembert Dome in Yosemite displayed in three different modes. When I found a NEW trail in Street View along the Tioga Pass Highway, I found it really hard to limit myself to just these three! So much to see! I took over 200 photos when we drove over Tioga Pass [>9000' ASL] in 2011. '-) ENJOY There are notes for each image;Open the image to see! :) Comments Welcome!

Are you ready for our next destination?  The Magic Bus is off to the state where it all began back in January, 2012. Artistic Google celebrates its third birthday with an annual pilgrimage and some California Dreamin' !

CALIFORNIA (January 5 - 18, 2015)

What do we need to say about things to seek out and do in Lotus Land? Check out our California albums:

2012: http://goo.gl/k84Np2

2013: http://goo.gl/q5sf5R

2014: http://goo.gl/exVj5O

It's up to you whether you revisit old favourites or check out the California that you've never visited. We don't doubt that the Street View crew has added and updated quite a few venues. 

A new year - maybe it's also a chance for you to try some new digital manipulation techniques. Use the albums to see what others have done and recharge yourself.

If you've never participated, but would like to, check out our About page to find out how. (Jan)___
