Takahiro Yamamoto3,016,986We'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

Gailen Mapes84,567Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera F-H - 21 of 27Note: 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 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.2015-03-22 12:34:52207000

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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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.2015-01-25 11:59:29201001

Hi all!  I was invited to another challenge by +Rosie Nixon .  This is my first image for the #fivedaysbokehchallenge  which will be fun and a bit challenging but there are different types of bokeh.  This time we start off with a bit of round reflective bokeh in back of this Twelve Spot Dragonfly that was clinging to one of the plants in my pond in the summer.  Hope you enjoy it and have a good 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!

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

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.

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

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!

#fromthecartuesday by +J. Rae Chip +shift

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!

Hi all, it's #steamysunday  with your curators +Paul Pavlinovich and me +Shelly Gunderson where we hope you will play along and share some steamy shots!  It can be ANYTHING steamy we like it all!  It would help us if you use the 3 tags I did to find them easier so we can enjoy them!  I saw some great ones already today but would love to see more!  :-)
My image today goes back to Cass Mountain and Scenic Rwy in West Virginia.  This was our train as we headed up the mountain through the woods.  They had just put water in the tender and you can see it was pretty full and we are heading up as the locomotive pushes us due to the stream of water coming out of the tender.  :-)  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi!  This image is straight out of the camera and is one of the oldest Tulips in my yard.  Someone had planted Tulips and other spring flowers in a spot between a couple of trees before we moved into our house in 1994.  I have heard that Tulips stop coming up after a while but these have bloomed every year, not many, usually about 3 of them,  however this year there are about 7 tulips up in that area.  I shot this one against a small portable white backdrop that I have.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Week 8 - Asymmetrical

I had a hard time with this.  As someone mentioned everything I saw and shot was very symmetrical.  There's quite a lot of symmetry in nature that we don't notice till we try to look for the opposite.  Last night, the Waxwings came to visit again and I finally had my image.  I liked the contrast of the smooth one to the one that the wind had caught it's feathers and then of course the tree branches providing differences.  Hope you enjoy my take on it!

Hi all!  It's a bit chilly out today.  Winds we had blew our warmth away for a while I guess.  anyway, today's image is a macro of a Hibiscus bloom.  I bring my plant in for the winter and while it does drop some leaves due to the light change it does OK and even blooms during the winter.  I took this of it after I had misted it so that's the reason for the water drops.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hi all!  I felt like seeing a butterfly today.  This is a male Tiger Swallowtail on the Butterfly or Buddleja Bush in the garden.  I am looking forward to seeing some more of these this year so I hope they show up.  :-)  
We just can't seem to get any rain.  Got a sprinkle that made my car even dirtier than it was and that was it.  SIGH.  Where are my April showers for May flowers.  :-(
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this image and have a great day!

#waterbirdwednesday +Water Bird Wednesday by +Margaret Tompkins

Hi all!  Last weekend the in-laws took us to Squaw Creek Nature Area in north western Missouri.  There were quite the number of birds to see.  I got this image of a pair of Blue Wing Teal ducks on the water in a reedy area.  I had never seen this type before.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!  I am hoping for rain but the chances keep decreasing.  SIGH

Morning!  It's very humid outside this morning or what we call muggy.  I wish we would get rain but our chances for it tomorrow are dropping as usual.  :-(  Anyway, thought I would share this image of some currently blooming Daffodils that I have in the garden.  I played around with this image a bit and liked how it turned out.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hi everyone, we are having the first #steamysunday  of April!  Co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I +Shelly Gunderson hope you will play along in the theme and share something steamy of ANYTHING you like, we enjoy it all!  Let's see some steamy shots!
My image for today is an older one from the first trip we took on the Cumbres & Toltec in #colorado  and #newmexico  .  I took this image as we were riding the train and the front part was crossing a trestle.  I believe this is Lobato Trestle but I could be wrong so please correct me if so.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!  I hope to catch up with you all soon.

Early Spring Tulip Party

Hi all, sorry I haven't been around much, we're out of town visiting family for a couple of days.  Will have to catch up when we get back.  In the meantime, this image comes from the yard of some good friends of mine.  I was visiting them Thursday and they had this group of tulips blooming.  They were the first ones I had seen this Spring except for a miniature singleton my neighbor had.  They looked like they were happy and having a party so I was able to come up with a title.  Hope you enjoy them and have a great day!

#beethursday +Bee Thursday by +Dorothy Pugh

Hi all!  I shot this image last Spring and it's one I hope to see soon if things go well.  The Lilac bush currently has lots of flower buds all over.  It's going to be lovely if they all open.  This Bumble Bee was sure enjoying them last year and I hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!  We actually got some rain during the night so mine is off to a better start.  :-)

Hi all!  This is the 2nd present from nature I received for my birthday.  I was able to capture my first butterfly for the year.  This is a Question Mark Butterfly on the Apricot Tree blossoms in my neighbor's yard.  I was happy to see it and to capture it in such a picturesque setting.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hi all!  I wanted to thank everyone so much that wished me a Happy Birthday.  It was so wonderful to see all the wishes from people here when several people in my offline world didn't so it really made my day!
I mentioned that I received a couple of gifts from nature that day and this is one.  I rarely get Cedar Waxwings visiting but this day I saw them in the Walnut tree and they stayed long enough for me to change lens on the camera and then get off several images of them.  It was a rare site for me so I had to share.  I have heard these birds are bullies like Blue Jays but for me they only come around to drink water at my pond and very rarely.  Hope you enjoy them and have a great day!

I was looking for something the other day and found some Cumbres& Toltec double heading images that I had never shared.  I think it was the first time we went there we were going to chase the train on the second day and were treated to a double header.  This is a view not too far out of Chama, New Mexico.  For the first half of the trip up to Windy Point it is mostly all up hill and with the smoke they were putting out they were working pretty hard at this point.  And, no, it's not a lot of pollution, most of it falls to the ground and on the train. Hope you... more »

Hi everyone!  This is the last photo I had taken and prepared in my celebration of Spring.  The Magnolia Tree at the Historical Society where I volunteer was in bloom this past weekend.  The blooms and the smell they produce are just lovely and a great sign of spring.  These are also referred to as Tulip Trees so does this image fit into #tulipsaturday  ?  :-)  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Week 7 - Umbrella

Hi all!  My take on the theme works for 2 different things today.  :-)  It's still a celebration of Spring but also for my B&W Project.  It's also a symbol of what the plants are going through here lately.  We have gotten some small showers but we are so dry here it is like we have a large umbrella over us.  The rain goes all around us but rarely do we get any.  The pond in town is at least a foot low if not two.  I have not seen it so low before.  In this image I liked how some of them seemed to be peeking out from under while the others were hiding back.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#beethursday +Bee Thursday by +Dorothy Pugh

Morning!  I captured this image on Sunday.  My neighbor has an Apricot tree that she lets me photograph and also get Apricots from.  The Honey Bees were busily flying from blossom to blossom and I was able to capture this one doing just that.  It got down to freezing last night and the grass was crunchy this morning so I hope the flowers were set on well enough that the tree will have fruit.  Last year it only produced one apricot due to a freeze.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Is It Safe

Morning all!  Daffodils are the second flower to bloom in my yard in the spring.  The first ones were just beginning to open up on this past Saturday.  I took this image of this particular one and it seemed to be asking the question of which I titled this image.  Unfortunately, no it is not safe because we are due for a possible snow mix tomorrow.  UGH  I'd much rather have rain and we can't get that these days.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Crocus Party

Morning!  When I left for Pennsylvania, one of my Crocus was already blooming because it had been so warm.  I thought I would miss seeing them all while I was gone.  When I returned this group was blooming and several others as well.  They just seemed to be enjoying the warm sun so much I even was able to come up with a title for the photo which is a rare thing for me.  :-)  On another note, we missed a chance for rain again.  SIGH  If our area wasn't developed like it is it would be the dust bowl again.  :-(  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day.

Hi all!  I am so happy that Spring is finally here that I thought I would share some photos this week that I have taken since it has come on fairly strong.  I saw these flowers in Pennsylvania last week and they were the only thing blooming anywhere there due to it being fairly cold and their snow had just melted a few days before.  When I looked them up to see what they were I found they are called Winter Aconites and are usually the very first flower of Spring.  Very true in this case and as you can see, a bee was quite happy to have found them as well.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Tulip Dream

Hi all!  Back home again after 18 hours of driving.  UGH  Left snow in Pennsylvania for 70 degree weather in Kansas.  Crazy.  Anyway, this is a tulip I had bought a couple of weeks back and decided to process with a dreamy feel to it.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hi everyone!  We are in Pennsylvania right now and they are calling for snow.  Made me wish for something warm so how about a lovely #butterfly  on Yarrow.  I shot this Common Variegated Fritillary on this wildflower out on Konza Prairie in the fall on a warm evening walk.  Tomorrow is travel home day so I won't be around, I'll be spending the day in the car.  Hope you all enjoy the image and have a great start to your weekend!

#waterbirdwednesday +Water Bird Wednesday by +Margaret Tompkins

Happy Wednesday!  This is an image I was able to capture while in #minnesota  last fall.  I was watching this Red Wing Blackbird and a Heron in this pond.  The Heron started wading too close for the Blackbird's liking and so it took off towards the Heron which caused it to take off as well.  I was surprised to see the large Heron flee from a bird so small in comparison.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all!  I was traveling for work last week.  On the way home I saw the opportunity to photograph a train for this theme that I hadn't had anything to play with for a while.  When I was looking through my shots I found this.  Even Red Tail Hawks are railfans!  LOL  This is along Kansas Hwy 61 out of Hutchinson.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all!  Getting back to my 5/5 image for the #fivedaysbokehchallenge  that +Rosie Nixon invited me to.  This ia an older image that for some reason I never shared here.  I captured this male Baltimore Oriole on the pole for the bird feeder.  The background was nicely blurred to make this guy and his bright color really stand out.  I have really enjoyed this challenge.  If someone wants to try I bet you will have a great time doing it as well. it as well.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

I'm traveling so a bit late with my play for today.  This is a Cumbres & Toltec train heading out from Antonito, #colorado  .  This is just after it has left the scrub plain and heading into the foothills before the mountains.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Week 6 - TV/Movie Inspired

Hi all, here is my take on the theme for this week of the project.  Had a little fun with this one.  It also falls into both categories of TV and then this was more from the movie.  Yes, I have action figures.  LOL  I always say I am in my second childhood because when I was a child I was never able to have things like this.  :-)  Hope you enjoy my take, decided on this as it fit a bit into the Friday the 13th as well.

#fivedaysbokehchallenge  
4/5

Hi all!   I was invited to the Bokeh Challenge by +Rosie Nixon and here is my next example.  This type of bokeh is what's known as a "creamy" type.  All the background is blurred very nicely to make what you are photographing really stand out.  This was a Great Spangled Fritillary that came to feed on the Butterfly/Buddleja Bush in my yard.  My challenge will have to take a break.  I will be traveling for at least 17 hours tomorrow so won't be able to post.  I'll probably be posting my last image on Monday.  Hope you all have a great weekend and that you enjoy the image!

#leavesonthursday +Leaves On Thursday by  +Mehdia Ridder

Hi all!  I was given this challenge by +Rosie Nixon and it's been good fun.  I took this image this past fall of these leaves on a vine that the way the sun was hitting them made them appear to glow.  The bokeh was great on them as well, all the leaves and sunlight streaming through created little balls of color.  Hope you enjoy the image as well and have a great day!  I'm supposed to invite someone but I am leaving it open to anyone who would like to play.  Come on, try it, it's fun!

#fivedaysbokehchallenge  
2/5

Morning!  For day 2 of my Bokeh Challenge that +Rosie Nixon invited me to I thought I would share an example of what I call Sparkly Bokeh.  I took this image of one of the earliest blooming flowers in the yard on a very dewy morning.  This is called Henbit and is viewed as a weed but has flowers that remind me very much of an orchid.  I liked the bokeh created behind it from the drops of water in the grass that you can see more clearly in the foreground of the image.  I realized I am supposed to invite someone to play and I did not do that yesterday.  With all the challenges going around I'd just like to invite anyone who would like to try it.  Bokeh is fun and interesting to a photo I think.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all!  I was invited to another challenge by +Rosie Nixon .  This is my first image for the #fivedaysbokehchallenge  which will be fun and a bit challenging but there are different types of bokeh.  This time we start off with a bit of round reflective bokeh in back of this Twelve Spot Dragonfly that was clinging to one of the plants in my pond in the summer.  Hope you enjoy it and have a good day!

5/5

Hi everyone!  This is my last image for the fun Nature Challenge that +Ricky L Jones invited me to.  I got a new lens that I had been wanting for a while, the Sigma 150 - 500 Zoom.  I took it out to Milford Lake in Kansas to see if I could photograph some #baldeagle  .   I saw quite a number of them, at least 20, but they were quite far away even for the zoom.  I was able to capture this pair of juvenile Bald Eagles flying around with each other who came closer so I could get a decent image.  I'm supposed to invite someone but I would just like to extend an invitation to anyone who would like to try it.  Shooting nature is quite fun, thanks to Ricky for inviting me.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hope you all enjoy my image and have a great day and that in the US you remembered to change your clocks.

Hi all!  I shot this yesterday evening and thought it would work well for the 5 Day Nature Challenge that I was invited to by +Ricky L Jones .  I shot these geese flying overhead in the west as the sun had dipped below the horizon.  I loved the silhouettes that were created and how you could see details in their wings in silhouette but you would probably have to view it in the Lightbox for that.  :-)  So I'm supposed to invite someone to the challenge.  How about +John Wade , have you done it?  You take some lovely bird images.  No pressure.  :-)
Hope you all enjoy the image and have a great day!  It's going to be nice out for once so I may not be around much today.

Hi all!  I was invited by +Ricky L Jones to play in the 5 Day Nature Challenge.  My first image fits into the #beethursday  theme sort of as well.  This is a Yellow Jacket Wasp that was busy on a Sunflower bloom this past summer.  Sunflowers are very hard to grow when you try, the ones from bird seed seem to have no problem at all.  Weird.  Anyway, I am supposed to invite someone to the challenge.  I'm not sure who has done before, +Paul Cooper would you like to do it with your lovely bird images?
Hope you all enjoy my image and have a great day!
