Mike Runyon28,188While I realize a lot of people have to work on President's Day, it is worth while asking for the day off. The traffic is considerably less and the crowds are diminished, making for far more photo opportunities. All those who can attend can meet just inside the main gate as there's a large area to gather and then proceed on through the event. There is a lot to see and do, as well as some great food to go with! There are numerous shows and great displays and has been quite the fun time all the years I've attended. You can buy tickets at the main entrance or you can usually pick up discount tickets at Fry's groceries. http://royalfaires.com/arizona/ Even though you may not be able to attend, please share this with any and all you think might be interested in the event!Arizona Renaissance Festival President's Day Photowalk2013-02-18 18:00:0020G+

russ vallelunga28,129Sycamore is the second largest canyon in the Red Rock District of Coconino National Forest (the first being Oak Creek), but is lesser known, and less traveled.  It's also more pristine, less populated by 'venturers', and friendlier to unspoiled~nature photographic scenes.  A riparian habitat in the desert, the subjects to photograph range from macro to landscape.  30 minutes out of Cottonwood, Az, a light decent of 200 feet leads to a level, sandy hiking trail   I'm staging a 'hiking' photowalk here, September 16th (alternate date, Sept. 30th if the 16th turns out to be unsuitable due to weather).   This is wilderness habitat.  The trail is mostly sandy and smooth, but sturdy shoes are needed. Bring at least 2 quarts of water per person (or purification tablets for the natural springwater); pack a non-perishable lunch, plus snacks.  There are *no* toilet facilities in the wilderness. I will bring a light shovel and a couple rolls of TP; we shall be considerate in covering any natural wastes and elsewise packing out what we pack in.  Animal subjects may include Golden eagles, mountain lions, bobcats, badgers, great blue herons, and black bears (most are elusive, but it could happen) and certainly smaller birds, squirrels, rabbits, and reptiles.  Natural subjects include miniwaterfalls, sandy waterways with moss and fungi, and water pools bathed in red-rock reflections.   Flora subjects include cottonwood, sycamore, and Arizona walnut trees, & a variety of wildflowers, vines, moss and fungi.  The photowalk will end about 2 miles in, at a pool of water about the size of an Olympic sized pool, surrounded by rocks of many colors. You're invited to camp out overnight at the trailhead for an early start/meet & greet  (campfires may be prohibited--bring a camping stove, or cooler for chilled foods).  There's no moon on the 16th, so I will offer assistance in astro-photography if desired.   Morning travelers to the event should use a travel site such as googlemaps or mapquest to determine at what time in the wee-hours of the morning they will need to leave from their location to arrive by 7:30am, then leave 1/2 hour earlier (just to be sure).  Those arriving late are welcomed to follow down the well-marked trail to catch up with the group.  Photowalk: Parson's Trail, Sycamore Canyon, Az2012-09-16 16:00:0012G+

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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-07-20 11:44:54116203CC G+

Thomas Hawk6,156,0612,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 4 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi.  Today's , part 4 of 5, today, represents Mi-Sh.  I'll share the last remaining circle tomorrow.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for part 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6f*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-04 15:53:284916171105CC G+

Rusty Ferguson5,790The Rusty Ball of Photographers Edition #2If  you were notified then you are included in this shared circle.In this circle, you will find some very good photographers and some amateurs too. Please support these photographers by sharing this circle.If you are a included in this circle, please reshare publically. It will help your work to be found by others if everyone or even many will do that.If you are not a photographer, please share to increase the chance that you will be included in another circle.I attempt to visit the profile of each person in this circle to confirm they are in fact sharing photos on G+.  There are a few people in here to help with the distribution of the circle, some special friends that work with me on G+.Do you want to be in my balls? LOL Okay my circles. I just couldn’t resist. I do things a little different. I’m not trying to have the biggest circle share on G+ if I do, that’s great but it is not my goal.I add people to engagement circles based on pluses, comments and reshares.  I also consider profile completion. If you do all four, then you’ll likely be shared four times a week on most weeks. However, I take a random sample of post so people can’t just engage once and hope to be included later. If you both comment and reshare and plus, then you get included in all three circles. If you’re profile is completed and you do one or more of the above, you’ll also be included in the circle that only folks with completely profiles get into.I know its not as simple as some make it but then that’s my style. I love comments and love to get to know you so hope you’ll comment when you have something to say about what I post. I can’t get to know you from a plus. I have also started a community for sharing your own photos. Joining it will also increase your chance of being included as I count that as engagement. You can join that community here: http://goo.gl/i56uSNI have two websites that you might be interested in. Visiting is not required but comments on articles are included in engagement and very much appreciated.For Internet Marketing and Social Marketing visit: >>>>>>> http://www.tantalizingweb.com/blogFor my adventures in the Philippines, see >>>>>>>> http://www.excitingcebu.comHope you enjoy the photographers, adding this circle will get you more quality photographs from those that produce the content.Thanks,Rusty #therustyball   #rustyball   #circleshare   #sharedcircle  2013-08-14 14:47:29422965693CC G+

Charles Lupica66,743          Top 1000 most followed active        photographers sharing content on G+                  Circle One: J to ZThis  is the second of two circles,  The first was shaerd on 16 May here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/103236949470535942612/posts/FPsHj9E2QEo.  The circles have been divided alphabetically to help give more exposure to people with fewer followers and shared at different times to help keep down the stream saturation. Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated. It has been two weeks since I announced my intent to update my circle of the 500 most followed photographers on G+.  I decided to do things a bit differently this time and so I'll share the top 1000.   To build the circles and the list I enlisted the aid of  +Bill Wood +Gemma Costa +Jen Baptist +Katy Houlne and +Margaret Tompkins   They built circles and vetted profiles.  My starting point for this was a list of 2000 names generously provided to me by +CircleCount. I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050114186132CC G+

Lightning Vortex
Terrific thunderstorm through here last night! Got a lot of shots I really like and this is one of my favorites.
Once the lightning was starting to hit on both sides of us as well as behind us and the wind was blowing so had I could hardly stand and rain started to pour, we called it a night.
I could hardly to get home and process my shots, but alas, when I got home the power had been knocked out and I had to wait till morning to process!

It seems I'm really starting to getting into cooking Chinese dishes these days. After whipping the Beef Stir Fry last week I decided to cook up a dinner of Sweet & Sour Stir Fry.
I think next week I'll do chicken stir fry as well!

Idiot Walking His Dog 
Made a quick run to the grocery a few minutes ago and saw a moron walking his German Shepard. The thing is, right now it's 104.5° and the sidewalk temp, which I just measured is 144°! 
I did notice the dummy walking his dog wasn't barefoot, so why would he think his dog would enjoy that! The guy probably takes his dog to the store and leaves him in a hot car while he shops too!

Movie Miscue
We started watching the very good movie "The Butler" last night and I noticed in a scene they were vacuuming in the White House with a Fairfax SCPD7 like the one pictured on the right during what was supposed to be the Kennedy administration. I found it interesting that particular model wasn't manufactured till the 90's and the correct one would have been the S-1, pictured at the left.
I sold the S-1 part time in the 60's and still own one of each, although the S-1 lives in my garage now where it seems happy to reside and let it's newer version take care of the dog hair and miscellaneous other chores in the house!
They remind me a bit of R2D2 and, as you can see, the S-1 came in quite handy when I was dueling with Darth!

Yoda's "Man Cave"
Even though he outgrew his doggie crate years ago, Yoda still uses it as a getaway from his 2 furry sisters, Maisy & Molly, but since he messed up his knee he hadn't been using it, I think because it hurt him to turn around in there with the bad knee.
Since his knee surgery he's started using it again this past week, as well as putting some weight on that leg, so it must not hurt him as much as it was and that's great!

Stir Fry Beef, Broccoli & Noodles
I decided last night to whip this up as a bit of a anniversary eve dinner, since the wife likes Chinese.
I used a combination of a couple of online recipes and a bit of ad libbing with the ingredients and it turned out to be quite delicious!
I also discovered, as I've long suspected, that no matter what they say is the cooking & prep time, you need to at least double it unless you have 2 or 3 people helping with the slicing and cooking! 
It was well worth the effort!

Power Window Broken
I had the driver's side rear window fail on my Dakota quad cab last Sunday. Now I previously had the front driver's door fail and it cost me over $300 to have it replaced in the shop and I thought if I end up replacing all my window motors, it will end up costing over $1200-1300 for all four, so I went on Youtube, found a video on replacing it, ordered a new motor and mechanism from a dealer on Ebay for around $35 and replaced it in 53 minutes. It works great now and left a lot more cash in my wallet!

Camouflaged
My new neighbor has his Chevy Silverado camouflaged, so now you can hardly see it. I certainly hope I don't accidentally trip over it walking to the mailbox!

Maisy & Molly Cuddling
Molly usually growls Maisy off if she gets too close to her, but the other night Maisy got to Molly's spot on the couch first and Molly's little green security blanket, forcing Molly to squeeze in between Maisy and the back of the couch to snuggle up to her blanket.
That's the first time Molly has ever cuddled with Maisy in the year we've had Maisy!

Lightning at the Ball Park
One of last night's storm over the Prospector Park Ball Diamond. Believe it or not the game was cancelled right after this shot.

Arizona Cardinal
For some reason when I see these birds I tend to think of the NFL (real football).

Monarch Butterfly
While they say "Butterflies are free" it still did cost $10 to get into Boyce Thompson Arboretum to shoot this lovely creature. It is easily worth several times the price of admission!

First Blossoms
We got this cactus almost 14 years ago and raised it in a pot the first several years till we bought this house 8 years ago, when we gave it a permanent home, planted in the front yard.
It looks like it's finally decided that it's happy here!

Rare Fur Covered Night Finch
Sitting on my patio yesterday at dusk I noticed this guy zig-zagging between two trees in my backyard. The way he was zipping around in the darkness between the branches you'd almost think he had sonar.

I noticed he has fur rather than feathers, as he went after various insects, so I immediately identified him as above!

He moved rather rapidly and flitted back and forth and up and down, so it was a bit hard locking onto him either in AF or manual!

Didn't have a very long lens with me, but this guy was kind enough to let me approach him to get the shot. At the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.
