Lotus Carroll1,775,055This is the Event for our March Self Portrait Challenge: Multiplicity. What this means is create a self portrait where you appear in the image multiple times (2 or more, your choice). Get creative and think up an interesting scene you can use this effect on and then make your image. Here is where you enter your ONE Multiplicity Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST March 31st, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. (The dates on the Event are truncated, but you can submit a photo anytime, all month long.) Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified. *Tips & Inspiration* There are several different ways to go about achieving this effect. In camera, you can use a long exposure and move around. Alternately, you can use post processing to create multiples in an image. Photoshop is most widely considered in this type of editing, but other programs can also be used to achieve effect, such as Gimp. For those with no experience with creating "multiplicity" images with post processing, here are a few resources to help you get started: Photoshop Multiplicity Tutorial Videos: http://goo.gl/cyTpyZ Gimp Multiplicity Tutorial Videos: http://goo.gl/hChZ0Q Examples from Flickr: http://goo.gl/os2P65 Other Examples: http://goo.gl/DqlDtR Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we will also be putting our photos into the Event in the hopes that you'll be inspired.

Art through the Aperture Photography (Paula)11,871There are so many of us out here that have image issues and are our own worst critic.  I challenge you all to take a picture of a body part (and please keep it somewhat clean everyone) that you think is your best attribute.  Take a picture of your arms, hands, feet, knees, hips, etc. that make you feel beautiful.  If you think your whole body is beautiful that’s wonderful, just pick one part. I know you all are beautiful so get busy and shoot. You can do your shot in whatever style you want this is all about your depiction of your beauty, so try abstract, B&W, HDR, whatever tickles your fancy.  Mostly have fun and invite anyone you want.  Please add at your leisure up to the date and only one photograph please! Thank you @118149685580234696847  for so graciously letting me use your shots from last year for our banner.2nd Annual "You Are Beautiful"2015-02-22 04:00:00298

Note: *Only photos uploaded and posted to the event page or associated with the hashtag #sunsetday on Sep 19 will be considered* We hosted two Hangouts On Air in preparation for Sunset Day. The first hangout focused on the meteorology behind sunsets including the reason behind the beautiful array of colors.  The second hangout concentrated on the art of sunset photography. Expert photographers well known to the Google+ community talked about their techniques in capturing the perfect sunset. Links to both HOA videos are posted below. *HANGOUT SCHEDULE* 1.

Whoever it is - and as many as there are - grab that ray of sunshine in your life often, thank them for contributing to your happiness. 

Today is Thanksgiving in the USA, but it's important to always be grateful, to take the time to say thank you, you're welcome, please, I'm sorry ... little kindnesses. I hope I can be a beacon to those in my life, to add light to someone's day.

His Magesty The Eagle

How did I never share this?!! I uploaded it to G+ on March 31, 2014, while I was still in Alaska. Somehow, I never shared it. I took this when I happened upon at least two dozen bald eagles while feeding their young. It was so amazing to watch!! Yet, it was impossible to capture amongst all the trees.

Once I replace the power supply and case, that computer will have been completely rebuilt except for the video card, memory and optical drive -- in exactly 13 months -- because of defective parts. I didn't buy "cheap" parts. I bought good, name brand parts. It was where I shopped that was the problem, I think. I'll have to buy a new case, but I hope the power supply has a 2-year warranty. Everything else has, so far. I'll be without computer while I wait.

This is beyond annoying!! How long before my video card fails? Maybe I should just RMA it now while the computer is already down!___

Nerd-Challenge

If any of you geeks out there have a little spare time - and a website on a shared host - and want a serious challenge, I have just the thing for you!!

It seems no one has quite figured out how to install a LetsEncrypt certificate on a shared host that uses cPanel. My thinking is that the host could install it using SSH once I upload the necessary files via FTP ... but they tell me otherwise.

Here's a discussion: https://community.letsencrypt.org/t/fully-automate-manual-mode-for-shared-hosting/7416
Surely somebody can figure this out if enough great minds are working on it.

If you haven't had the pleasure of dining at Lago at Bellagio, I very strongly recommend it! I went there for the first time over the holidays - with my dear friends +Alex Lapidus and his wife (who isn't yet a member of this community so I won't mention her) and their friends.

This place is Top Notch.

FYI

I've deleted my YouPic account, if you were following me there. I just didn't find much use/merit in it. I will probably do the same on Ello and 500px soon. The only one I'll likely keep other than G+ is Flickr.

In other news, I want to finish out that Oregon collection, so I might be loading photos into it in quick succession. Please forgive me for flooding your stream. I very seldom do that. 

But first... I saw a fascinating video this morning that I'll share in a moment.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

I don't do resolutions or champagne ...
Sometimes I get out to see fireworks but mostly I avoid those crows.

The New Year is the best year, because the old one is gone -- that's my philosophy. I close the door on 2015: what was great, I don't mourn. What was less than great, I hope to learn from it. If there were awful things (there were!), I rejoice they're over.

Welcome, 2016!! (shortly) I hope it's wonderful for all my G+ friends!

Question... (I'll delete this post after I get an answer)

Did Google+ delete our ability to turn off "recommended" content; ie, "FriendA +1'd this post" from someone who isn't in our circles? I just did a quick scroll through my stream and about half of it is people I don't know. I circle people for a reason. I can't find a way to turn that off. It used to be there... seriously, G+ is getting to be more work than fun lately.

ATTENTION PHOTOGRAPHERS

Is this your photo or do you know whose photo it is? This person shares lots of posts to promote his limousine service. I commented on several posts of mine asking him not to share my posts for commercial purposes. He hasn't removed them. Subsequent to my comments, he started sharing only photos, so my concern is that he started grabbing photos instead of sharing posts.

Help Beethoven arrange his masterpieces in today’s #GoogleDoodle

Because I love a challenge, I had to try them all without first listening -- and got 100% on each. Then again, I've played them all except for the 5th Symphony but I can read music and know the melody.

Thanks +Elton Woo for sharing this!!

Who else can get it, either before or after listening? It's a fun challenge!

EDIT: My five seconds of glory are over.

The head honchos at DPS in their limited wisdom thought my photos were too risqué for Facebook, so they replaced some of them with images that were totally inappropriate for the article. One was a voyeuristic image of an elderly couple. Another was a studio setup of Amazon boxes. Ergo, I requested they remove my article. I felt those images denigrated the article.

It has now been republished on my own website here:

It won't go into sleep mode and when it does, it won't come out of sleep mode. I had to re-register my copy of Windows when I changed some (defective) hardware. Now they think I've stolen Windows.

Be Grateful Always

Whoever it is - and as many as there are - grab that ray of sunshine in your life often, thank them for contributing to your happiness. 

Today is Thanksgiving in the USA, but it's important to always be grateful, to take the time to say thank you, you're welcome, please, I'm sorry ... little kindnesses. I hope I can be a beacon to those in my life, to add light to someone's day.

Devil's Throat

After a day of nearly cloudless skies, we arrived at Devil's Throat near sunset and were blessed with amazing color and clouds. This is a very remote area of Nevada. We had hoped to get to Little Finland, but we stopped so frequently and spent so much time enthralled by the amazing rock formations that Little Finland has to wait for another trip.

I used a 3-stop +Vü Filters neutral density filter to get some slight movement in the clouds. I love these filters because there's virtually no discernible color shift. (I didn't adjust my WB at all in post.)
