Takahiro Yamamoto3,063,308We'll finish our 366 project in several days! Are you happy about it? Or are you sad? Anyway, who not celebrate the fact that we're completing our missions! 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 #Bestof4Q12Creative366  in the comment section after you post the image! 2) Your best or most favorite shot you took for the project this year. 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

If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to February 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting January 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             #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.2015-02-24 11:52:152048210

Vinod Kalathil9,118My Morning Circle - January 2015 EditionAs many of you know I started this circle of photographers whom I reshared in the last 12 months. I have learned so much from these photographers and it has helped me come a long way. Here are some of my favorites from January 2015.A colorful lighthouse by +Beena R https://plus.google.com/+BeenaR/posts/7VizSfHV8A7A dreamy monochrome landscape by +Richard Susanto https://plus.google.com/+RichardSusantoPhotography/posts/9fvT1TMX9MLUnique reflections by +Werner Polwein https://plus.google.com/+WernerPolwein/posts/cXfZPQu9Rt6If you get a notification, you are in this circle. To stay in the circle, you don’t need to do anything other than keep posting beautiful shots! However, any plusses and reshares will be most appreciated to spread the word. If you add the people in this circle, you can be rest assured that you will discover some great talent. If you do not want to be a part of this circle, please send me a personal message and I will remove you from this and future circles.2015-02-01 18:27:4530511112

Tulip Line Up

Morning!  It's a rainy day here again, a nice soft rain.  Love it!  Unfortunately I am heading out for the day so don't have time to play.  I wanted to share another photo from my garden this Spring of some Tulips who looked as though they were lining up for something and of course there's always one who's rather impatient wondering why the line isn't moving.  :-)  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!  Catch up with you later!

How Do You Do

Morning!  A lovely yellow Tulip from my garden waving a hello on a dreary day here in Kansas.  This was one of the old bulbs on the property that came up this year.  Loved the bright color of it.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great weekend!  It was a long time coming this week for me.

Week 11 - Self Portrait

Hi all!  This is my take.  I hate photos of myself.  Anyway, this is me doing my second favorite thing.  If this theme took place in late June or even later this month I could have had a shot doing my favorite thing, running a steam train.  Anyway, I used my broken Pentax on a tripod on a 12 second timer and as the shutter went off on it, I snapped the shutter on a macro I was taking of these Columbines.  Sometime I'll have to share that image.  Maybe on my Blog.  :-)  So there you go, this is me.

#floralfriday +FloralFriday by +Tamara Pruessner +Beth Akerman +Kiki Nelson +Eustace James

Hi all!  Felt like something a bit bright today.  We are in for several rainy days which even if we don't get rain, will be several cloudy days.  This is an image I took during the winter of some flowers I bought to brighten up the house and also to play around with.  I processed these with a high key look.  Hope you enjoy them and that they brighten your day as well.  Have a great start to the weekend!

Hi all!  We have a sunny day today!  I'm not complaining about the rain, just wish the sun was out when it wasn't.  :-)  I got this image on Saturday.  I'm not sure what these blossoms are but I got an unexpected surprise while looking at the images I took of them.  Hope you enjoy this Honey Bee's butt among the flowers and have a great day!

Hi all!  I took this image on a trip to Missouri and Squaw Creek Wildlife Refuge in the northwest part of the state.  I saw a large number of waterbirds that day including this very large group of pelicans that was almost constantly in movement around the main water area.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all!  I finally have something to play in this theme with.  I was in Topeka on Saturday down by the BNSF shops and caught these 2 older units heading in.  I got my shots finished just as it began to rain, hence the gloomy sky.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Morning!  Had a busy weekend and will just get worse from here now that activities are gearing up.  Anyway, for today's image I thought I would share another monochrome version of the Barrel Cactus blooms from a few weeks ago.  I think these flowers lend themselves well to this.  I like the detail a monochrome image brings out.  I will be posting the color version on my blog later today for comparison.  Hope you enjoy this one and have a great day!

Hi all, it's #steamysunday  where your co-curators +Paul Pavlinovich and I hope you will play along with a steamy shot.  It can be ANYTHING STEAMY we love it all, even the steam off your coffee or tea!  We hope you'll play along and tag us so we can find and enjoy them!
My image for today goes back into the archives of our first Cumbres & Toltec trip where on the day after we rode and were chasing the train we were treated to a double header of power.  The train is headed out of Chama, NM here and is on it's way to Antonito, CO.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Tulip Line Up

Morning!  It's a rainy day here again, a nice soft rain.  Love it!  Unfortunately I am heading out for the day so don't have time to play.  I wanted to share another photo from my garden this Spring of some Tulips who looked as though they were lining up for something and of course there's always one who's rather impatient wondering why the line isn't moving.  :-)  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!  Catch up with you later!

Morning!  I am back with another image for my rain celebration.  We have a good chance for more tomorrow and we still need it due to being without for so long.   My Pond Lilies are flowering already.  The sun had just come out on Sunday after we had a nice rainfall and I caught this one with drops on the bloom and pads.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day and a great start to your weekend!

Hi all!  My rain celebration continues with some of my favorite flowers in my garden.   I wish they lasted longer.  These are my Daisies that I was able to capture after the rain on Sunday.  All my flowers were very happy as was I.  Hope you enjoy them and have a great day!

Hi all!  I'm continuing on with my celebration of rain.  I shot this lovely Iris just as the sun came out after it stopped raining on Sunday.  I loved the soft background the bokeh created.  Hope you enjoy it as well.  Have a great day!

#happymomentsmonday +Happy MOments MOnday by +Baki Karacay

Morning!  Posting to a new theme for me today with something that might not make others happy but did for me.  We had RAIN this weekend!  Nice rain too not just a gully washer as they call them around here but somewhat gentle and a good amount.  I went out and took photos of real raindrops on flowers instead of having to fake it with a spray bottle.  :-)  So I am celebrating rain a lot this week.  This is a Columbine I bought and photoed just before I planted it.  This particular color is Colorado's State Flower.  It is also known as Columbine Aquilegia caerulea.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

A Flair For the Romantic

Hi everyone!  This is one of my older Tulips that all seemed to end up pink except for a group in the front garden that are red.  When I was taking photos I loved how the petals on each side folded out.  It inspired me enough that I came up with a title for it even.  I hope you enjoy it and have a great day!  This is also for my buddy +Wray Post who has always been very supportive of my work and commiserates with me on lack of rain and gives me a smile quite often and is celebrating a birthday today.  Happy Birthday Wray and hope it's a great one!

Week 10 - Flowers

Hi all!  Here is my image for this weeks theme.  The Barrel Cactus that I have at work was in bloom last week.  For a cactus that isn't that great looking, it produces the most beautiful flowers.  Thought it worked great for the project.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great weekend!

This also works as well for another image for #floralfriday +FloralFriday by +Tamara Pruessner +Beth Akerman +Kiki Nelson +Eustace James

Morning all!  A bit dreary today but we have a chance for rain so I guess I will take that.  This is a Monarch Butterfly and a sight I hope to see this summer.  I have been choosing plants that butterflies will like as I plant this Spring in the hopes of giving them something to feed on to help them on their journeys and also to be able to get photos.  :-)  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hi all!  +Sandra Parlow posted this today about Collections.  It has some great info.  I posted this there but here's a bit more info about it.  Hope to clear up some questions and confusion.  Where people viewed Communities as breaking up G+ this is different and allows you even more customization of your stream.  
All Collections are is a way of organizing things for the person posting.  What you are seeing these days is what they would have sent through the stream anyway.  The only difference is that now it is tagged into a Collection with like posts to be able to find those like posts easier and if others are interested in them for them to find them easier.  That's it.  Note: if you Move your posts into a Collection they will not reappear in a stream.  If you Share it, it will. 
If you were able to comment on someone's post before, you still will.  Collections do nothave to be more »

Ok - so I'm seeing some confusion about collections amongst my photo friends about collections...

Let me try to unconfuse you...

What I'm seeing is that people aren't sure about the check box that makes your collections automatically followed by your circlers.

People are afraid that they are going to be spamming people with things they don't want to see if they keep this box checked.

Let me explain:  

Your followers follow you, right?  Right now they see (or potentially see) every thing you post publicly.  It doesn't matter what it is.  It could be your scenic photos, your caturday photos, your political posts, your stories about your grandma...   they see it all without collections.  right?

Ok...  so, now, enter collections...

When you create a collection, the default is for all of your followers to be automatically following the collection.  If you make your collection public, they will still see everything you post.  Nothing has changed at all.  You're not spamming anyone - it's business as usual.

Now, let's say that you uncheck that box...  so that your followers are NOT automatically following your collection.  Now, when you post to that collection ONLY the people who have found that collection and followed it will see those posts.  So.. if Joe unchecks that box for his "super de dooper star trails" collection - I will no longer see them..  most likely because I don't know they exist - because they will not be in my stream any more.  The only way I'll see them is to visit Joe's page.. and let's face it.... who has time to visit Joe's page and everyone else that they circle?  

Yeah - not many of us..

So...  right now you may be asking "what's the point?"

Well, here's the point...

If Joe has a collection for his star trails and his caturday and his grandmom's stories and his political posts, I can pick and choose what I want to see.  I can visit his page, check out his collections and unfollow the political posts and the caturday photos.

 The damn guy posts 5 cat photos each Saturday and he starts on Friday night and still is going strong on Sunday.  I'm sick of his political rants and even though I love to see his star trails, he's pissing me off and I just can't take it any more... so I'm thinking about uncircling him..

but now I don't have to.  I can just uncircle his Caturday and poliitical collections!  I don't have to be annoyed by him and he no longer has to feel that he shouldn't post certain things because it will annoy people.  

But he HAS to use his collections for this to work.  

On the other hand..  if his star trails are the ONLY thing of his I want to see - I can just follow that collection and I don't have to circle him if I don't want to - kind of nice for people who's circles are full, right?  

amiright?!! ;)

Ok, so hopefully that cleared some stuff up for you.

For my own use, I have created a few collections.  they are all checked to be automatically followed with the exception of one.  I feel that the people who follow me here do it for my photos, so it's ok for me to have them following my photos.  My yoga collection, however, I unchecked - because that's not what the majority of my followers follow me for.  It's out of my norm.  I created it mostly for me to keep cool ideas and things that I can refer back to - if someone else finds it useful they can follow along.  I can now keep that collection on my own page and not in my follower's streams and bother them with stuff they may not want to see from me.  

I can see this being a valuable asset moving forward for us to all fine tune our streams to make them more of what WE want to see - but it takes a village to raise a child.. or in this case...  a community to clean up their act.  ;)___Hi all!  +Sandra Parlow posted this today about Collections.  It has some great info.  I posted this there but here's a bit more info about it.  Hope to clear up some questions and confusion.  Where people viewed Communities as breaking up G+ this is different and allows you even more customization of your stream.

Hope this all helps.

Morning!  I thought I would play to a theme I never have before since this image I wanted to share fits pretty well.  :-)  I even have a title for it which is rare for me.  A macro of a Dandelion seed making it's escape from the others.  I gave it a monochrome treatment as well with some toning that I liked.  Hope you enjoy it as well.  Have a great day!

Hi all.  What a crazy time it's been.  Swamped at work and then all our rain for the year came in about 4 hours, we had over 5 inches!  
Anyway, my image for today fits 2 themes.  This is alongside K-18 out of Manhattan, KS which is quite the busy road so I did not get out of the car to take this.  I was headed in to pick up a package at Fed Ex and caught this tanker train heading out towards Ft. Riley and Junction City and places west.  I thought it made for a good pano shot and is best viewed large.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day.

My image is from the archives, Steamfest in Owosso, Michigan back in 2009.  We got to see a number of locomotives in action.  One of them was this Pacific Type 4-6-2 from the Little River Railroad that was in lovely condition and pulling some excursions during the show.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Happy Saturday!  I mentioned that I had planted Tulips last fall and that they all came up this Spring.  I tried to mix the colors up a bit while planting but only had bare bulbs to work with.  With this group of red/orange Tulips you can see i didn't quite manage that for all of them.  Not sure how it worked out this way but they looked quite lovely together.  Hope you enjoy them and have a great day!  I have an event to work today so won't be around much and will have to catch up later.

Hi all!  Happy Friday!  Sheesh what a week.  I am glad it's about done.  Very stressful.  Anyway, on to the photo.  It's Iris time here in Kansas.  The first ones are blooming, the dark purples and whites.  These fancy color ones will be coming into bloom a bit later.  This is a lovely one I saw near work one day last year and photographed it against the sky.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#inmotionthursday +InMotion Thursday by +Scott Thomas 

Hi all!  Busy day ahead so might not be around till this evening.  This is the last photo from my Lilacs this year, they are about done already.  Just don't last long enough.  They smell so wonderful while blooming.  This Hummingbird Moth was sure enjoying them one afternoon.  It's slightly blurred because I caught it while in flight.  I was surprised to see one so early, I usually don't see them around till summer.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#transporttuesday +TransportTuesday by +Gene Bowker  +Annie Irving

Morning!  I have something a bit different to play in the theme today.  I live near Fort Riley, Kansas which is an army post that began in 1853 as a Cavalry School and  was active during Civil War time  and in 1865 had General George Custer stationed there.  The Commanding General's Mounted Color Guard recreate what it was like for a soldier in those early times.  The CGMCG was out at the historic Spring Valley School site this past weekend for an event for the +Geary History Museum and I got this image of a rider by the school.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Union Pacific 3985 or UP 3985 is a four-cylinder simple articulated 4-6-6-4 Challenger-type steam locomotive owned by Union Pacific Railroad. It was built in 1943 by the American Locomotive Company of Schenectady, New York. The locomotive is one of only two of the original 105 Union Pacific Challengers in existence, the other being UP 3977 on static display in North Platte, Nebraska.

This is a photo I had taken a good while ago and actually thought I had lost it in a hard drive failure. This is the Union Pacific's Challenger steam locomotive and is probably the largest steam engine still operating in the US until UP gets their Big Boy Locomotive up and functioning.  I took this image of it when it was on an excursion and visited Kansas City several years ago.

Morning!  I was taking photos of the Waxwings that are still coming to visit the backyard pond when I was surprised by this.  A female Cardinal with nest material that was in the small Cedars I have in my Garden Rwy up near the house.  This is not cropped at all.  Was very neat to see.  I know they build nests but have never observed them collecting material for it before.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all, it's #steamysunday  !  Co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I +Shelly Gunderson hope you will play along with some images today of ANYTHING steamy you want, we love it all!  Please use the 3 tags I did so we can find and enjoy them easier.  Let's see your steamy shots!
I am having to dig back in the archives these days.  This is an image I never shared from the night shoot we attended at Steam Fest in Owosso, Michigan several years ago.  This is the Southern Pacific Daylight leaving the turntable after the night shoot to head to it's spot for the night to be readied for our excursion behind it the next day.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!  I am having to be away for activities this weekend so will be trying to catch up with you all soon.

#TulipSaturday by +Measie Elizabeth +Marilyn Benham +Eustace James

Morning!  We got a bit of April showers last night for May flowers!  I am happy as we have been so dry.  It's even sprinkling a bit still this morning.  These are a Yellow Tulip Trio of new Tulips that I planted last fall.  All of them came up and bloomed which I thought was great.  I have not had such luck with other bulbs.  I thought I would share them to brighten up a bit of a dull day.  Hope you enjoy them and have a great day!

Superstition

Hi all!  Wow, Week 9 already!  Here's my take on the theme.  I tried for a bit of fun with a Black cat, Salt for Luck and Wood to Knock On.  I am a bit superstitious (I can hear my hubster laughing and rolling his eyes at the "a bit" part).  I try not to let black cats bother me though because they are usually big sweeties.  :-)  I have been known to throw salt over my shoulder a time or two and I utilize knocking on wood quite often.  Hope you enjoy my take on the theme!

Hi all!  Happy Friday!  What a week!  My flower for today is part of my Spring Celebration.  This is a Fern Peony.  I have part of a plant that was my husband's grandmother's in Minnesota.  When she passed several years ago I was given this and took it home to plant.  Fortunately it has survived and every now and then produces a lovely bloom, usually only one per year.  I was very surprised to see this one this year due to the lack of moisture we have had since last Fall.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#beethursday +Bee Thursday by +Dorothy Pugh

Hi all!  I'm continuing on with my nature and Spring celebration.  The Red Bud Trees bloomed fairly early this year and attracted lots of bees.  I captured this Honey Bee enjoying the blossoms last week.  They are all pretty much done now and leafing out.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Morning!  Happy Earth Day everyone!  It's also Admin Professionals Day so be sure to thank those who help you out with your work.  I'm continuing on in my Spring celebration with a sight I hope to see continue if we are careful with the earth and it's resources.  When the Lilacs are in bloom I usually get a visit from a Swallowtail Butterfly to enjoy them.  This was the first one of the year that came and stuck around for a few photos.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hi all!  My Spring celebration continues with an image of actual rain!  We were about one and a half hours away from home on Saturday visiting with friends that we run trains for.  While there it was actually raining most of the time and was the first rain they had in quite some time as well.  I photographed these rain drops hanging off the leaves of a Cedar tree and I loved the bokeh the rain was causing.  When we got home that day we found that a rain storm had just moved through our area as well and we got the first significant rain of the season finally.  Still need lots more but it was great to finally see it.  Really helped the plants and filled up my collection tank finally.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all!  So this week I thought I would do a celebration of Spring mostly with the nature I have seen come to visit.  The Lilac bush has been quite popular so most of the images contain it.  I wish it lasted longer, it smells wonderful.  Anyway, this is the first Red Admiral Butterfly that I have seen this season and luckily it sat long enough to have it's photo taken.  This image was taken against a cloudy sky so that's why the white background.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all, it's #steamysunday  where co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I +Shelly Gunderson hope you will post your steamy images!  We like ANYTHING steamy from your coffee to trains to mist off a lake, we love it all!  Let's see those steamy images!
This is an image of the Cumbres & Toltec that I had never shared.  It was after our first ride on the line and the next day we were chasing the train and got treated to a double header.  Here it is making it's way back from New Mexico to Colorado and is working it's way up to Windy Point.  It's been basically all up hill at this point and you can see they are working hard to get to the top.  When they reach it they will stop for water and the second locomotive will detach and head back to Chama, NM.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all!  Still nothing much in our April showers for May flowers.  Sigh  I'm glad the Tulips are doing so well even without.  Here are another couple of old ones from before we moved in.  I had a name for this, Tulip Couple.  See I am horrible at naming photos.  Hope you enjoy it though and have a great day!  Will have to catch up later, going to be away all day.

Hi!  Wow, am I glad this week is about over.  Ugh, very stressful.  My image for today is of one of my favorite flowers.  I just learned of these a few years ago but I love the shape of them.  I had 2 different plants of them and both have not survived so I am going to try again this year and maybe third time will be the charm.  These are called Bleeding Hearts and I hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all!  How about a butterfly today.  :-)  This is a Cotton Square Borer that was on some Ornamental Pear Blossoms last spring.  I have seen some white butterflies around this year and a Checkerspot and Red Admiral but have been unable to get a shot of them yet.  I'm very happy to see them arriving though, missed them a lot during the winter.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all!  This is an image from Squaw Creek Nature Reserve in north western Missouri.  The in-laws took us there on Easter weekend.  There is a road to drive around the wetland areas.  I shot this image as we were stopped waiting for some Coots to cross the road from the main wetland area to a smaller pond.  So that's why the Coots crossed the road.  :-)  This one I caught as it was just coming up over the hill.  Now I know what bird the saying "Old Coot" comes from.  LOL  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#mountainmonday +Mountain Monday by +Michael Russell 

Hi all!  Thought I'd play in a different theme today.  :-)  This is from my trip to Colorado this past summer and when I drove to the top of Mount Evans.  Mount Evans claims to have the highest paved road in North America.  The top is at 14, 240 feet.  I was a bit higher when I took this photo because you can walk a few hundred feet more to the very summit.  From this point it is 5 miles driving to Summit Lake that you can see in the image.  At the base of the mount it was about 80 degrees F but here is was in the 30s and so windy you could hardly stand up straight but it was a beautiful place to be.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!
