Alan Shapiro2,958,741I'm continually flabbergasted (I love saying flabbergasted. Say it with me. Flabbergasted. Now say it ten times while pretending you just got your tongue pierced. Cool.) at the sheer number of certain products available for photographers. Choosing a camera bags has got to be one of the more time consuming and frustrating experiences. And a bag is one of the products that is really important right? We're carrying expensive gear around and want to protect it. But then it has to be comfortable. And easy to use. After spending far too much time searching online and walking the aisles of B&H, Adorama. PhotoPlus Expo most recently in search of the perfect camera bag, I decided to ask a friend, +Peter Waisnor from +Tenba to spend a half hour with me to talk about choosing a bag and what to look for in a bag (while promising me to stay as neutral as possible despite making the best bags in the world.)Join us tonight from 8:30pm - 9:00pm EST (5:30pm - 6:00pm PST) for our Hangout On Air (which will be recorded so if you can't make it, no worries. You can watch it online later)Picking a camera bag...what to look for and how to decide what's right for you2013-10-28 01:30:0081

Vago Damitio8,732This is the famed international circle! I did not succeed...and now. I leave it to someone else or perhaps me later. I am so impressed and enthused looking at the MicroVictoryArmy Stream  that I'm going to do something radical. I"m going to share my other circles, invite the members to join MVA, and then I'm going to delete all those circles so I can give more attention here.  I will keep  one circle of people like the +Dalai Lama  and +Richard Branson  who I would love to have join MVA but I don't want to lose track of if they don't. And that's it.  The Micro Victory Army is Victorious in my Circles and if you join - so are you. https://plus.google.com/communities/100245247140773385767  #microvictory  for figuring out how to enjoy G+ and manage my circles better!This is the circle in which I tried to gather one person from every country in the world. I failed.. I'm about to delete you (unless you are in MVA - it's not personal - I still love you)2013-01-12 22:07:37146000

The circle has grown a bit too big and there are some new additions to this one but some may be left out since there is a limit of 501 to share (This is looking like an All Star Circle Lately!). As always I try to mention some of the people in this amazing circle and remember to feel free to share, add the circle (especially if you are new to Google+!), or recommend people for future shares! Some of my Google+ family include: +Brenda Leguisamo, +Joby Remigio, +Alex de Carvalho, +Sze Liu,  +Liz Quilty, +Liza Walton, +Blanca Stella Mejia, +Linda Lawrey, +matthew rappaport, +Bobbi Jo Woods, +Mara Mascaro, +Michelle Marie, +Amanda Blain, +Moritz Tolxdorff, +Euro Maestro, +Christina Trapolino, +Brian Rose, +2012-10-09 03:17:21501191634

Rob Michael22,740From time to time, I get asked if I have a "Jazz" circle or similar so I thought I would share this: my "Musician" circle. This is one of the few circles that I really check-in with. These are mostly musicians who are present here on G+ and don't do the blatant self-promo thing of which musos are so frequently guilty.cc: +Paul Stickland 2012-06-13 16:00:55191747

Sebastian Hiernaux0Interesting Plusers CircleI usually don´t share my circles but this one contains around 200 people that I consider to be interesting, funny or both. Most speak English but there are a few Spanish speaking users in there as well.The interesting part is I know none of them personally (those would go in my friends or colleague circles) but are still interesting enough to follow.Hope you find them as interesting as me :)2012-03-21 22:22:07190217
Howard Huang3,358Do you want significantly more music in your Google+ stream? Check out this circle of people that either promote music, make music, love music, or have any appreciation for music.I've done my best to prune the circle free of inactive users. If you would like to be considered in this music circle in the future leave a comment so I can check you out. If you don't have time to go through the entire list I suggest atleast checking out +Rob Michael +Ryan Van Sickle +Don Harrison +Erik Peterson They share and talk about music more than I do.Don't forget to re-share to spread the love of music.2012-03-02 19:50:25195304

Ryan Crowe16,410G+ Tip: Add this Circle - "People's Choice" Top 50a diverse starting point for people looking to fill out their streamsEveryone needs a good "getting started" circle, so this is good for a reshare or two.Based on this list: http://www.recommendedusers.com/peoples-choice/+Alireza Yavari of Recommendedusers.com posted an interesting question awhile back (like 7 years in Google+ time) and asked the question: "Who are the users who share the most interesting and valuable content on Google+ ?" This is the list that was created based on the answers to that question - only Alireza knows for sure how many people answered the question, I don't know specifically, but he publicly intimated that he received thousands of answers... but that's not what is most important about this circle from my point of view.What is probably the most important aspect of this circle is that you get a lot of diversity - this is useful for new Google Plus users or those who haven't really filled out their stream - or for users who are tired of getting shared circles with 250 people who talk about the same thing (which are useful in their own right, and I'm not knocking themed circles at all).Here you'll find some of your usual suspects like +Robert Scoble +Mike Elgan and +Tom Anderson -- but also other great photographers, artists and up-and-comers with whom you might not yet be familiar.Alireza has another list in the making - the same question with the caveat of a current/limited Follower limit of 1,400 people. So keep your eyes open for that!Ryan Crowe shared a circle with you.2011-10-13 20:22:3650226220

Robert Scoble161,698A circle of geeks (part II). Here's almost 1,000 active geeks. Programmers, developers, and highly technical people. Here's K-Z. Really great list of geeky/tecnical folks. Put them in their own circle so they don't overwhelm the folks you've hand selected. As always, if you find people who aren't active (a few have snuck through) or who aren't good, let me know and I'll remove them.Also, if you think you should be on the list, let me know! I'm still adding more.Robert Scoble shared a circle with you.2011-10-12 03:16:034941006360

The Tunnel Of Love

Klevan is an urban-type settlement in the Rivne Raion of Rivne Oblast in western Ukraine. Its population is 7,470 as of the 2001 Ukrainian Census. Klevan is accessed via the T1B17 and H22 roads, and is located 28.3 km northwest of Rivne and 50.4 kilometres southeast of Lutsk along the H22. Klevan lies on the Stubla River.

There’s a real place in the Ukraine that looks like this. This beautiful train tunnel filled with greenery is located in Kleven, Ukraine. Locals call it the “Tunnel of Love” and it’s beautiful even when it’s not all green.

I have watched dozens (if not hundreds) of hurricane videos but nothing comes close to the incredible force displayed by Super Typhoon Haiyan at landfall. Around @10:00 things get extremely scary with winds that come dangerously close to an F4 tornado. 

This hurricane should extend the Saffir-Simpson scale to 6. The devastation of the coastal cities was absolute.

A fantastic documentary. The New Horizons mission is 2 years away from reaching Pluto and its moons. I had no idea it was gonna be just a fly by mission, but the thing is moving so fast it will be impossible for it to speed down. Check it out if you want to learn every little aspect ranging from its conception, construction, launch and testing on Pluto

The ultimate battle of fire and ice! Who will win, the sun or Comet #ISON? 

Join #NASA as we follow the journey of Comet ISON as it slingshots around the sun. 

Will the awesome gravity and energy of the sun break up this cosmic ball of ice and rock? Will it break up? Or will it pass the sun intact to put on a dazzling show in the December sky? 

Watch as NASA solar physicists track the comet LIVE from the mission control for NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory,@NASA_SDO, during #ISON’s closest approach to the sun. 

We'll also be joined by comet scientists joining from Kitt Peak Observatory in Arizona, where the solar telescope will be observing ISON and by science writer Phil Plait.

Wonderful insight. 

Why Do We Remember Certain Images?

I float from one genre to another, I have thought about trying to stick with just the one but find it simply too restrictive. I have though found that certain images get a better response than others.

I remember I conversation I had a long time ago with +Alan Shapiro on how people react between certain genres. I know a lot of my landscapes get a better reaction than my street portrait. But why?

A beautiful landscape will give the viewer a means of escape, a release from the day to day life most of us have. It is though fleeting, landscapes are a lot more complicated to set up and take but few are really memorable.

Street portraits differ, they being reality to every day life and when they are portraits of the more unfortunate then the reality can really hit home. Sometimes that's hard to take so a lot of the audience would rather go back to the escapism of a landscape.

But which one will you remember?

For me the portraits will always be in the forefront of my mind, they are more than a two dimensional image on a screen, they are someone, someone's father, mother, son, daughter, which will you remember? ___Wonderful insight.

Rubik's Cube Lamp

This fresh design for a lamp is based on the Rubik's Cube and even changes colors depending on the orientation.

From the artist:

Rubik's lamp is an innovative project based on the popular toy from the eighties. Much like the original Rubik's cube, the lamp is composed of 26 smaller cube-like pieces, whose interlocking shapes fit onto each other.

The rotation of each face of the main cube allows the arrangement of up to forty-three quintillion different combinations, each one providing different lighting. Colored patterns and chaotic, kaleidoscopic lighting can be created by not leaving the main rows parallel to each other.

Rubik's Lamp is a creative solution for customized lighting, and, just like the original toy, presents itself as a fun, challenging puzzle.

"Mount Roraima, Venezuela" by Uwe George (National Geographic)

The majestic Mount Roraima is the highest mountain in the Pacaraima Mountains.

Roraima lies on the three borders of Venezuela, Brazil, and Guyana. The mountain is part of Venezuela’s Canaima National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Angel Falls is also part of this beautiful park.

Mount Roraima’s highest point is Maverick Rock at 2,810 meters (9,219 feet), and the whole of Mount Roraima’s fairly flat top surface area is surrounded by 400+ meter (1,312+ feet) high sheer cliffs.

It can be climbed, though all routes besides the Paraitepui route require technical climbing gear. Visitors can get a stunning view of Mount Roraima and the greater Canaima National Park from a memorable helicopter ride.

Black Sabbath - Planet Caravan

We sail through endless skies,
Stars shine like eyes,
the black night sighs

The moon in silver dreams
falls down in beams,
Light of the night

The earth, a purple blaze
of sapphire haze in orbit always

While down below the trees,
bathed in cool breeze,
Silver starlight breaks down from night

And so we pass on by
the crimson eye
of great god Mars

As we travel the universe...

An Albino Killer Whale!

[Link to NatGeo: http://tinyurl.com/7mu748o ]

A fascinating sighting took place over the Bering Ocean, in Russia. I hope we're able to get some underwater pictures of "Iceberg", the white killer whale:

"Scientists were studying acoustic and social interactions among whales and dolphins off the North Pacific's Commander Islands (map) when the team noticed a six-foot-tall (nearly two-meter-tall) white dorsal fin jutting above the waves—hence the whale's new name: Iceberg.
Though Iceberg's moniker is new, he may be the same killer whale scientists spotted in 2000 and 2008 in Alaska's Aleutian Islands, Holly Fearnbach, a research biologist at the University of Aberdeen in the U.K., said by email.


For one thing, Iceberg and the previously seen whales look very similar, Fearnbach said.more »

For one thing, Iceberg and the previously seen whales look very similar, Fearnbach said.

Furthermore, each of the three white whale sightings were among about a dozen family members, all bearing the typical black-and-white pattern, Fearnbach said.


White Whale a Mystery

The 22-foot-long (7-meter-long) Iceberg is probably not a true albino, since he has color on his saddle—the area behind his dorsal fin—FEROP's Hoyt said.


Scientists have observed other killer whales with a condition called Chediak-Higashi syndrome, a rare disease of the immune and nervous system that affects coloration, Fearnbach said.

But most animals affected with Chediak-Higashi don't survive to adulthood, meaning it's unlikely Iceberg—a mature male of at least 16 years—has the disease. The male seen in 2000 and 2008, if different from Iceberg, also didn't have the disease.


Iceberg Healthy, Handsome

Whatever his condition, "we can see that he is a healthy-looking male, a handsome, robust member of his fish-eating pod, so we can presume that his coloration doesn't affect him in a negative way," FEROP's Hoyt said. (Some killer whale pods eat mammals, but Iceberg's group appears to stick solely to fish.)"
