Charles Strebor (Rantz)24,293An evening of friends playing with fire and light for photographic purposes. We shall dine and sup and meander and rejoice and giggle and guffaw and wander and play.  There is never enough play. We shall gather well before sunset so as to identify appropriate spaces for playing with fire and light in order to make awesome images. Please bring food and drink to share, cameras for making images and any fire and other light equipment that you may have for a proper exploration of the photographic possibilities of Kalinga Park.Fire Spinning & Light Play2015-08-29 17:00:008

Charles Strebor (Rantz)24,293I'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 Pavlinovich22,357Now 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  
Paul Pavlinovich22,357You may shoot 36 compositions on this photowalk. you may shoot film or digital it's up to you but only 36. Can you do it? Shooting only 36 will make you really look, evaluate, think "do I really need this shot?". It will make you more deliberate. It will make you hunt for the best light and the best subject matter. You'll find it hard. You'll find it frustrating. You'll find it rewarding. You may post process via traditional or digital darkroom if you choose. If you're shooting HDR you may bracket but you must only end up with 36 images after post. I'll lead a walk around Melbourne (botanic gardens, observatory, the shrine, arts centre, ending for munchies and drinks on Southbank). If you can't walk with us, please shoot the 36 anywhere you want and share the 36 to this event. Worldwide. Go for it. The 36 photowalk - where will you shoot yours?2014-08-31 14:00:0053

Charles Strebor (Rantz)24,293Ready 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

You can share two shots this time. *Please remember just two images!* 1) Your best or most favorite shot you took in the fourth quarter of 2012 (October- December).

Add #BestofCreative366Project  in the comment section after you post the image! If you think those two tags are too complicated, forget them and just two of your images! But please add your comment in the comment section after you have posted them. *And if you are the one who failed to complete the mission and are thinking you are going to do it again next year, you can add your fav one you took for the project here!* One last thing: I have made this event "public." I might have missed inviting those who are participating this +Creative 366 Project, so if you know anyone who isn't here but is doing his/her project, please invite them! 366プロジェクトもあと数日で終わりです。うれしいですか。それとも、悲しい? どちらにしても、長かったミッションの終わりを皆で祝いましょう! 今回は写真を2枚シェアしてください。 *2枚だけです!* 1.10月~12月にプロジェクト用に撮った写真から、お気に入りの写真かベストの写真を1枚選んで投稿してください。 #Bestof4Q12Creative366  のタグを投稿後にコメント欄に入れてください。 2.プロジェクトのために撮った写真から、今年のベスト(もしくはお気に入り)! の写真を1枚選んで投稿して下さい。  #BestofCreative366Project  をタグとします。 タグが面倒なら、ただ2枚を選んで投稿してくださるだけで結構です。写真のコメント欄に、その写真の思い出などを書き添えていただけるとうれしいです。 そして、このプロジェクトに参加したのに途中で挫折した!来年こそは!という方も、ぜひこのイベントにご参加ください。挫折するまでに撮った写真をシェアしていただければ結構です。もちろん、来年への抱負も添えてくださいね!The Best of Your 3662012-12-30 16:00:0088

Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych354,437It's been a pretty disappointing year for some of us, celestial sights wise. There have been the usual meteor showers (it was cloudy for me every time), the transit of Venus (also cloudy) and several eclipses (none were visible from my area). Luckily, we still have the Geminids left. They're generally considered to be one of the best and most reliable meteor showers of the year, so hopefully we'll get a good show. They will appear to radiate from the constellation of Gemini, and you could spot up to 120 meteors per hour. The moon will be new meaning that visibility should be very good. Although Dec 13th-14th is the peak, meteors will be visible for several days before and after that so don't forget to look up this week. As usual, if you get any good photographs/videos please send them our way!Geminid Meteor Shower2012-12-14 00:00:00162  
Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych354,437On 2012 November 13/14, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses Earth's southern Hemisphere. The path of the Moon's umbral shadow begins in northern Australia and crosses the South Pacific Ocean with on other no landfall. The Moon's penumbral shadow produces a partial eclipse visible from a much larger region covering Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific. For those traveling to Australia for the eclipse, please note that the eclipse occurs on the morning of Nov. 14 local time. For more information, including specific timezones and best countries to view from see NASA's website here: http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEmono/TSE2012/TSE2012.html #sciencesunday    #solareclipse   #eclipse   #NASA   @109783903175191665261 Total Solar Eclipse2012-11-13 23:00:00133

Steve Johnson34,050... At least for this event. The idea here is a simple one; Rules serve a useful purpose but they should be questioned, broken and ignored on occasion. Post photographs that break at least one photography rule (maximum of 3 photograhs) and note which rule they break in the comments.  Here are some example rules that can be laid waste to: Composition The horizon a third from top or bottom Left/right mirror symmetry is to be avoided The odd number rule Rule of thirds Technical Use of on camera or undiffused flash Wideangle for portraits (fortunately this one is becoming a thing of the past) Editing Oversharpening Over-saturating (Just about over-anything really).  Other Shooting down at kids, pets or flowers. These are just a few examples off the top of my head -there are many, many more. If you can think of others please add them in the comments. One useful rule: This is all for fun so don't over think it :)Rules are for Fools2012-09-24 07:00:0034

Jacob Dix37,043For some time now I have been doing a project, an experiment, an exploration, a study in light. My object has been the sky, through the limited vantage point of my kitchen window and my backyard. The result, so far, is this album called *Sky*: http://goo.gl/phGuR Forget about that for right now. Show everyone your own sky! The best, the worst. I've seen people mention avoiding it because it means they have no "object" to shoot. Don't listen to those people. It is the most challenging palette of light there is. Let's see 'em! You have a full day and a half! Please spread the word too.Sky!2012-09-02 00:00:0023

Culicoides ornatus

Biting midge (Culicoides ornatus) numbers rise with full moons: to protect yourself, cover with long-sleeved shirts, long trousers, socks and shoes and apply DEET or Picaridin-based repellents.

Yeah, yeah - I know, I know - long clothing in the tropics at this time of year?  Crikey!

h3rg1dri529's Birth

Hir birth wasn't like ours, at least not in our understanding of what it is to be birthed.  Sie's birth is more like what our science tells us is The Big Bang - an infinite being conceived as two universes touch, albeit briefly, before going their own ways for further mating.

Born in Between

Should Doctors Operate On Intersex Babies?
M.C. was born with ambiguous genitalia, a rare condition that doctors addressed with surgery. Now, in a landmark lawsuit, M.C.’s parents are challenging the medical mainstream: Why does a surgeon decide what sex a child should be?

All children have a right to bodily integrity: female, intersex, male - stop cutting childrens' genitals.

Fractalz 23

The womb in which h3rg1dri529 gestated for millions of universes (yes - universes - there's no point in telling you the number of years this is - it will only confuse your tiny hooman brain) is the most beautiful womb of hir species. Unlike our gestation from one cell to many, h3rg1dri529's gestational womb was a holding space as sie was fully formed at conception. Sie merely stayed in the womb until the universe was ready to understand her beauty.

Genital Cutting: It's Not About Skin

Genital cutting – whether done to those designated female, intersex or male at birth – is not about skin. Yes – it’s skin that gets cut.  But it’s not about skin.  It’s about consent.

All children have a right to bodily integrity: female, intersex, male - stop cutting childrens' genitals.

 Aphantasia...Hyperphantasia

Another spectrum... and there's a quiz as well.

My results? Hyperphantasia - a category which approximately +23 percent of people fit into.

I've written to the Professor to seek involvement in his research.

I suspect that many in my circles, particularly those I regularly engage with, will also be in the hyperphantasia portion of the spectrum.

Where do you fit?

Fuzzy Nautilus Rediscovered and Filmed

Coming from stock that first appeared near the end of the 530-million-year-old Cambrian Explosion, when animal life first appeared in our planet’s global ocean, the nautiloid cephalopods have endured through both good times and bad, including times very, very bad indeed: the great mass extinctions, short intervals of time when most species on Earth died out. Thus survivors such as the nautilus are revered by science.

Morning Rain

My morning routine was interrupted with a brief rain which, necessarily, meant that I had to go outside for my rain dance ritual.  I'm glad it's still dark and the neighbourhood is still, mostly, sleeping as I got to greet the rain wearing my sky suit.

May your day be.

10 Reasons You’re a Pro-Circumcision Fart Bag

This isn't the usual style of information that I include in my Genital Autonomy for All collection as it doesn't fit with my style of (intact)activism.  My style of (intact)activism involves providing information that can help educate about the dangers of and mythologies around circumcision. For me, name calling and shaming those who circumcise is counterproductive to the goal of ending genital mutilation of all children whether they are assigned female, intersex or male at birth.  

In this instance, though, I'm sharing this post as I guffawed as the point-by-point refutation of a woman who supports circumcision because she's a "mommy blogger" and knows everything about the rights of children, even the penis of her male child and his choices later in life.

There's a link to the post that is being refuted in this post, but I shan't link to that here and will, instead, provide the dot points from this article:

1.) Citing the American Academy of Pediatrics
2.) Citing “The New York Times” as “proof” of support of infant circumcision
3.) Making bullshit assumptions and spreading more bullshit
4.) Believing circumcision pain is equivalent to baby shots
5.) Dropping the erroneous “hygiene” argument
6.) Giving excuses, not reasons
7.) Lack of critical thinking
8.) Carving a sexual preference into a child
9.) Downplaying the harms of circumcision while hiding behind laws that protect your own gender
10.) Having no idea what “pro-choice” means
11.) BONUS! Believing that Female Genital Mutilation is “worse” than circumcision

All children have a right to bodily integrity: female, intersex, male - stop cutting childrens' genitals.

+Leigh Wheeler, I love your work. 

If you like this concept, please  #PayItForward  (i.e. share the work of someone whose work you love using the #LoveYourWork #Hashtag)
 
The Back Story -->>> 
Post from +Paul Pavlinovich where he loves my work and discusses the hashtag http://goo.gl/zWsx0

Whilst many of my #loveyourwork posts will be about photographers, not all will be: one of the many things that I like about gee plus is that many of my interests are catered for in the one place.  As such, my #loveyourwork posts will cover myriad areas of ideas/topics/subjects/people that I find interesting.

Do you know how much you mean to me?
As you grow into what you will be.
You came from within, from just beneath my heart.
It's there you'll always be, though your own life will now start.
You're growing so fast it sends me awhirl, 
With misty eyes I ask, Where's my little girl?
I know sometimes to you I seem harsh and so unfair, 
But one day you will see, I taught you well because I care.
The next few years will so quickly fly, 
With laughter and joy, mixed with a few tears to cry.
As you begin your growth to womanhood, this fact you must know, 
You'll always be my source of pride, no matter where you go.
You must stand up tall and proud, within you feel no fear, 
For all you dreams and goals sit before you very near.
- Kay Theese

Female Circumcision & Health Benefits

Female circumcision or FGM is seen in the cultures its practiced as beneficial for women.  In the west we see it as abhorrent though some still cling to male circumcision.  In fact in the west, one of the arguments you will hear trying to justify male circumcision and denounce female circumcision is that "Male circumcision has health benefits but Female Circumcision has no health benefits".  In actual fact there are at least 2 studies listed below that show a correlation between female circumcision and lower HIV infections, and medical practitioners in femcirc cultures report that clinical experience shows that female circumcision does indeed have health benefits.

All children have a right to bodily integrity: female, intersex, male - stop cutting childrens' genitals.

We shall dine and sup and meander and rejoice and giggle and guffaw and wander and play.  There is never enough play.

We shall gather well before sunset so as to identify appropriate spaces for playing with fire and light in order to make awesome images.

Please bring food and drink to share, cameras for making images and any fire and other light equipment that you may have for a proper exploration of the photographic possibilities of Kalinga Park.___Six More Sleeps

Is That All There Is?

The markets, as per usual, were visited. One wanted stacks of garlic for tonight's dinner.  One found plenty of rather horrible garlic from China going at a cheap rate.  Local garlic? Well... I managed to find less than a handful.

Tonight's dinner has been re-designed. Tis a good thing there aren't any vampires floating about at the moment.

And it's best, methinks, that one gets clothing on the body and moves said body toward said markets.

Note to self: order is important - moving towards the markets before clothed can be problematic.

Cultural Bias in the AAP’s 2012 Technical Report and Policy Statement on Male Circumcision

The American Academy of Pediatrics recently released its new Technical Report and Policy Statement on male circumcision, concluding that current evidence indicates that the health benefits of newborn male circumcision outweigh the risks. The technical report is based on the scrutiny of a large number of complex scientific articles. Therefore, while striving for objectivity, the conclusions drawn by the 8 task force members reflect what these individual physicians perceived as trustworthy evidence. Seen from the outside, cultural bias reflecting the normality of nontherapeutic male circumcision in the United States seems obvious, and the report’s conclusions are different from those reached by physicians in other parts of the Western world, including Europe, Canada, and Australia.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recently released its new Technical Report and Policy Statement on male circumcision, concluding that current evidence indicates that the health benefits of newborn male circumcision outweigh the risks. The technical report is based on the scrutiny of a large number of complex scientific articles. Therefore, while striving for objectivity, the conclusions drawn by the 8 task force members reflect what these individual physicians perceived as trustworthy evidence. Seen from the outside, cultural bias reflecting the normality of nontherapeutic male circumcision in the United States seems obvious, and the report’s conclusions are different from those reached by physicians in other parts of the Western world, including Europe, Canada, and Australia. In this commentary, a different view is presented by non–US-based physicians and representatives of general medical associations and societies for pediatrics, pediatric surgery, and pediatric urology in Northern Europe. To these authors, only 1 of the arguments put forward by the American Academy of Pediatrics has some theoretical relevance in relation to infant male circumcision; namely, the possible protection against urinary tract infections in infant boys, which can easily be treated with antibiotics without tissue loss. The other claimed health benefits, including protection against HIV/AIDS, genital herpes, genital warts, and penile cancer, are questionable, weak, and likely to have little public health relevance in a Western context, and they do not represent compelling reasons for surgery before boys are old enough to decide for themselves.

All children have a right to bodily integrity: female, intersex, male - stop cutting childrens' genitals.
