Offbeat Images533THIS CONTEST ENDED ON 8/15/14 Introducing the Offbeat Images "Blue Ribbon" Gallery Contest – the bi-weekly, Google+ digital photography and art competition dedicated to honoring images (and the digital artists) that celebrate the magic and wonder found in ordinary places, spaces and things.   You are cordially invited to show off YOUR best “offbeat” image (and digital art skills)  in our inaugural contest. [You can ONLY SUBMIT ONE IMAGE.]  What is considered an "offbeat" image?  It's not a traditional landscape, portrait, or macro digital photography image. (In other words, you probably won't find one on a travel poster, art gallery wall or flower theme page.)  An "offbeat" image is an original, unconventional, high-quality (i.e., not raw, but very well composed and thoughtfully processed) piece of digital photography or art that captures the glory of often overlooked items and areas in our world. For example:  Peeling old paint, Candid or unconventional portraits, Striking or abstract shadows and/or reflections in buildings or things, Interesting or unique antiques, Narrow alleyways, Far off Main Street urban scenes, Fallow farms or old tractors, Stormy skyscapes or unusual clouds, Dried river beds, Broken windows, Abandoned factories, Beaches in winter, Overgrown paths or trails, Fields of wildflowers, Seldom used roadways, Weedy gardens, Decayed, worn or rusty objects ... The examples above are merely a guide to what some might consider ordinary things and spaces. The everyday world has lots of ordinary things and spaces that--with an artist's touch, could be captured and crafted to look or feel extraordinary. That said, PLEASE DON'T SUBMIT the following: -  Unprocessed or raw photos (no "Instagram" or snapshots) -  Images lacking thoughtful composition, lighting, focal point, color or tone balance, perspective, or cropping. ("Offbeat" by our standard doesn't mean silly, shocking, or mocking in nature. This is a serious contest for serious artists looking to express their artistic vision.) -  Landscapes/skyscapes/seascapes  (Unless you have used additional processing, such as HDR, selective focus, textures, etc.) -  Macro shots of flowers or bugs (Unless you have used additional processing, such as HDR, selective focus, textures, etc.) So ... set your artistic self free: Create your "offbeat" images with THINGS AND SPACES FOUND IN YOUR EVERYDAY WORLD that capture your eye, meet our definition and deserve our attention.  Thanks again for your participation. _______________________ Here’s how to participate: 1) Circle our Offbeat Images "Blue Ribbon" Gallery theme page and each of our owners and curators. 2) Accept this contest event invitation and submit ONE original (i.e., created and owned by you) image that you have either previously shared publicly on Google+ or one that you have created recently and would like to share--first, with us in our contest. (Be sure to share only a single image--not an album, and enable commeOffbeat Images "Blue Ribbon" Gallery Contest - ENDED ON 8/152014-08-01 21:00:0010

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters.Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true.Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart.Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life...*****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOUIn my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with.So today I Celebrate being 44 aUpdate to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00205

Gailen Mapes73,565Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to December 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting November 7th.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-12-14 12:07:07194000

Gailen Mapes71,322Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-14 11:21:38202002

”Clarity and emptiness are inseparably united in the true nature of mind, which is beyond all concepts of existence and non-existence.”
Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Wishing to all my friends and followers a happy Sunday.

Photo description and details:
I took this photo almost two years ago, after being stuck in the Hotel at the top of Serra da Estrela for a couple of days due to a huge blizzard. When we were able to leave, we took the road from Penhas da Saúde down to Manteigas. Following one of the slopes of the glacier valley of the river Zêzere we stopped at a kind of picnic area by the creek. There we found this beautiful spot.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Photo description and details:
I took this photo almost two years ago, after being stuck in the Hotel at the top of Serra da Estrela for a couple of days due to a huge blizzard. When we were able to leave, we took the road from Penhas da Saúde down to Manteigas.

Pema Chödron

The Pateo - Sortelha, #Portugal
(Click on the photo to view it large)

”A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labours of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.”
Albert Einstein

Photo description and details:
Near the Porta Nova (New Gate) in Sortelha (we can see its arch above the trees in the center of the photo) is this very cozy pateo. On the left side we can see the fortified wall that surrounds this medieval village.

The Power of Waves - Senhora da Guia, #Portugal
(Click on the photo to view it large)

”The mind is always active, always generating thoughts, just as the ocean constantly generates waves. We can’t stop our thoughts any more than we can stop waves in the ocean. Resting the mind in its natural state is very different from trying to stop thoughts altogether.”
Mingyur Rinpoche

I know that probably this is a little lame post. 
Nevertheless, it's been two years now that I revived my old passion about Photography and started this wonderful journey here at Google+.
I had to learn digital photography from scratch. But the basic skills from many years ago, when I was shooting with film, were still here.

In the meantime, my friends (that I met here at G+)  +Miguel Almeida and +Fabs Fabian invited me to exhibit my photos along with their wonderful work.
+Jack Stepanyan and +Rinus Bakker invited me to be a part of the wonderful adventure that is +BestTopPhotographer.com 

+Britta Rogge and her +ShowYourBestWork are also a great support to my work.

Last but not the least, Google+ has granted me the honour of selecting many of my photos to be promoted at "What's hot and recommend" 
Here are a few I managed to catch and screen shoot.

Thank you all my friends and followers for the great support you have given me. Without it, none of this could be possible. 

I wish you all the happiness this world can give...___

Photo description and details:
I was supposed to travel today to the Pottery Museum (+Olaria O Patalim Lda) in S. Pedro do Corval, to buy more stuff for the restaurant. It is pouring rain here in Oeiras and I suppose that it will ruin a 200Km journey to Alentejo. I have to wait a few days for better weather - want to take some photos along the way…

Patalim - S. Pedro do Corval, #Portugal
(Click on the photo to view it large)

Photo description and details:
I was supposed to travel today to the Pottery Museum (+Olaria O Patalim Lda) in S. Pedro do Corval, to buy more stuff for the restaurant. It is pouring rain here in Oeiras and I suppose that it will ruin a 200Km journey to Alentejo. I have to wait a few days for better weather - want to take some photos along the way…
So this shot was taken back in January, the last time I was there...

Mingyur Rinpoche

The Old Cross and the New Windmill - Sortelha, #Portugal
(Click on the photo to view it large)

”For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”
Nelson Mandela

Photo description and details:
Outside the fortified walls of Sortelha I found this beautiful stone cross. It looked very old and, so far, I could not find any historic reference to when it was built. On the other hand, the surrounding hills of Sortelha are full of these new windmill generators…
For a cleaner energy and a better future for all of us.

”As I see it, there isn’t so much to do. Just be ordinary — put on your robes, eat your food, and pass the time doing nothing."
Linji Yixuan

Photo description and details:
Like all fortified medieval villages, Sortelha has a huge and thick stone wall surrounding its old part.  So, in order to shoot the Sunset I climbed the wall to have a broad perspective of the landscape on the West side.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Wishing to all my friends and followers a happy Sunday.

Photo description and details:
I took this photo almost two years ago, after being stuck in the Hotel at the top of Serra da Estrela for a couple of days due to a huge blizzard. When we were able to leave, we took the road from Penhas da Saúde down to Manteigas. Following one of the slopes of the glacier valley of the river Zêzere we stopped at a kind of picnic area by the creek. There we found this beautiful spot.

”Proper effort is not the effort to make something particular happen. It is the effort to be aware and awake each moment, the effort to overcome laziness and merit, the effort to make each activity of our day meditation.”
Ajahn Chah

Photo description and details:
On my first trip outdoors to experiment my present camera - the Nikon D7100 with the 18-300mm Nikkor lens - I went to this wonderful beach called Praia da Adraga. It was late September and after a heavy rain that fell that afternoon. The air was clear and the breeze smelled wonderfully. I still remember that.
It seems that every time I go deep into my archives, there is always something worthy of processing...

”It is very important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short term and the long term for both yourself and others will come.”
The Dalai Lama

Photo description and details:
I met with some friends this morning to free some lives. Being an important day, according to the Buddhist calendar, we usually celebrate it by releasing into the Ocean some shellfish that otherwise would be destined to be cooked alive and then eaten. 
It was pouring rain, but fortunately when we arrived at our spot, an opening in the weather gave us a break...

"With even a little intuitive wisdom we will be able to see clearly the ways of the world. We will come to understand that everything in the world is our teacher.”
Ajahn Chah

Photo description and details:
This long exposure was taken back in February. It was a stormy day - like many others of the past Winter - and during a weather break I was able to climb down the stairs to this small beach in Estoril, and take a few shots there. It had been raining heavily and this was really a great opportunity to take a few photos without becoming totally soaked. This photo was sitting - once again - in the archives and I decided to give it a new go with Lightroom. I hope you like it...

"There is no distinction between means and ends. There is no way to happiness; happiness is the way.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

Photo description and details:
Sortelha is an old fortified village that brings us to the Middle Ages. I visited it this Summer and posted here quite a few photos. One of my favourites is the Pillory (https://plus.google.com/+LucianoCruz/posts/aFXssw95dJK). 
Once there, if you head Westwards and follow the street and past the parish church, just look up and you will find the Porta Nova (New Gate). Go through it and once outside the fortified walls you’ll find a place with a solitary tree where you can enjoy a peaceful and relaxed sunset: https://plus.google.com/+LucianoCruz/posts/1291pVcNNjg

"Appreciate and rejoice, without any expectation. It doesn’t matter if people are unkind to you, it doesn’t matter if people betray you, it doesn’t matter if people don’t even say ‘thank you’ to you; by appreciating everything around you, from happy experiences to sad, your life will become meaningful, full of understanding, joy, strength and fearlessness.”
Gyalwang Drukpa

Still another shot taken at Cabo da Roca, the most Western point of Continental Europe. I’m sure this lad was thinking about the the big issues of life. That's what usually happens when we gaze at such beautiful scenery...
Or maybe he was just texting...

I took this shot back in August 2013 with my old camera. It was sitting in the archives and unpublished. Today I decided to give it a new processing and give it a go. It was taken by the Tide Pool at Azenhas do Mar at the end of a beautiful Summer day and you can see some children still bathing in the warm waters of the Atlantic.
If you would like to know how does this pool look from the cliff above, please refer to another photo of mine “Cliff Refuge” published here at the link below. You’’ll see it’s worth the effort. Trust me.

If you would like to know how does this pool look from the cliff above, please refer to another photo of mine “Cliff Refuge” published here at the link below. You’’ll see it’s worth the effort. Trust me.

Milky Way Rising - Belmonte, #Portugal
(Click on the photo to view it large)

"You are not an observer, you are a participant.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

Photo description and details:
Another shot from last Summer's vacation, and taken from the terrace by the pool of the Pousada de Belmonte, a charming little hotel where I usually spend some quality time. Here we can see the Milky Way rising over the Cova da Beira Valley (which comprises the crossing path of the river Zêzere through the cities of Belmonte, Covilhã and Fundão). Normally this kind of photos are made with two exposures (one for the landscape and another for the sky and then blended digitally). I’m not that fancy and so this is only one exposure processed in Lightroom 5. I hope you all like it.
