Bette Kauffman25,702+Bette Kauffman is coming to Chicago! Will arrive some time Friday Sept. 26 and be ready for a photowalk Saturday. I have us meeting at The Bean, but if anyone has a better idea, I'm game. I'll be staying in Club Quarters Hotel in The Loop, but I'm comfortable using CTA to get about anywhere I want to go. If you can't join in until lunch time or after, we can make that work too. I'll have to head back to my hotel room by 4 p.m. to get ready for the opera. Y'all get this on your calendar, now!Chicago in September!2014-09-27 17:00:003

Bette Kauffman25,702Yes, Bette Kauffman is coming to Chicago! Opera Friday and Saturday evening, photowalk Saturday, home Sunday. Meet me at The Bean (Cloud Gate to the purists). If the weather cooperates, I plan to be out until about 4:30 p.m. If the weather is nasty (seems a real possibility this year), we'll head up to the conservatory and feast our lenses on orchids and such. Or go anywhere else protected from the elements y'all might suggest. I'm easy to please! Join me for all or part of the day. (Yes, that's +Tom Tran in the photo.)The Chicago-in-March photowalk is on!2014-03-08 17:00:005

Gailen Mapes70,002Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera I-K - 26 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 October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 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 +2014-10-26 10:26:091466416

David Bowden37,155Its been awhile....For over three years I collected and shared an exclusive B&W circle. This circle "was" one of the most shared on G+ for awhile. I would share it once a month with everyone as a part of my personal desire to share more quality B&W images and photographers. The requirement for being in this circle was that the photographer shot at least 60% B&W images (I tend to shoot 80%).There are some excellent photographers and friends here. I encourage you to take a look at their work. While I know that bulk circle sharing is a thing of the past or no longer the norm on G+ (which is a shame) I wanted to re-share a collection of truly inspirational people.You wont be disappointed. Re-share if you like their work</david>2014-05-06 23:16:1649012223

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.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.

Monochrome World6,526January 2014 Contributors Circle What an amazing month. The quality of the work shared has been exceptional, at least in my view. You do quality photography and it shows. In terms of contribution numbers it was humongous, and in terms of contributors, we beat all records. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful work. Re-share this circle if you can. It helps YOU and the theme to grow.Please remember to include in your posts, both the page and tag: +Monochrome World  #monochromeworld  This makes it easier to find your post. Also, all those included in this circle added the theme page to their circles. If you don't do that, I can't add you to the Contributors Circle.Note:1- please share your images posted to Public. If you post to communities, only community members can comment.2- So, my recommendation is this: post to Public first, then re-port to your favorite community.3- And, if you post to Extended Circles, your reach is limited and it makes difficult to re-share. So, it's been a rule for a long time: Extended Circles only-posts are not re-shared.Hope this helps clarify some issues. Thank you for your patience, and if I missed you in this circle, please let me know so I can pay more attention to your posts.Curator: +andi rivarola  #circleshare   #sharingcircles  +Circles Circles Circles +Share Your Circle +Circle Distribution +Valued Circle Shares 2014-02-04 03:06:3237613276159

Stuart Dyckhoff25,367January EngagersEveryone in this circle has directly engaged with at least one of my posts this past month. This share is my way of saying thank you again for having done so.The only way to get in my monthly engagers circle is to comment on at least one of my posts. A +1 won't do it and it doesn't matter whether I follow you back or not because for at least that month I will follow you if you comment. If you aren't normally in my circles then it's up to you to show me why you ought to remain. That could be by even more regular interaction with me or by sharing your own stuff that makes me want to engage back.Irrespective I do truly appreciate each and every comment folks make as it's this interaction that drives any social media site. Without it, we may as well not be here. Thank you, Diolch, Grazi.2014-01-31 06:53:00811517

My fourth in the #fourveggiechallenge in the spirit of Edward Weston sure does get around. I had no idea it is grown and eaten so widely. Nevertheless, it might take someone in the southern hemisphere to recognize it!

So.... thanks again to +Jürgen Hurst for starting this business, and to +Heiko Mahr & +Richard Harlos for passing it on. +Levi Moore, I eagerly await. And, folks, tune in tomorrow because I'm going to start a veggie challenge with a difference of my own.

Getting low and putting this "flamingswords" against the sky was a great move by +Steele Wotkyns for #wildflowerwednesday! Cool shot!

This is likely my last #wildflowerwednesday  post for the season. We spotted this blooming ocotillo in #Sedona  on our hike last weekend! It's November! Ocotillo or Candlewood, slimwood, ... vine cactus, flamingsword ... is Named for Pierre Fouquier, a #French professor of medicine. Relative of the boojum tree of Baja. Blooms: March to June. Despite spines on its stems, the ocotillo is not a cactus. Mature plants have up to 75 slender branches. (Plants of Arizona, Epple & Epple)._ I also thought +Maria Blosser would appreciate this one! photo: (c)2014 S.

For my own variation on the #fourveggiechallenge , loosely after Edward Weston, started by +Jürgen Hurst and passed on by +Heiko Mahr & +Richard Harlos, and now I've heard +Levi Moore is on board.

No rules, really. Well, black & white, four or more and have fun. But save those colors because I'm gonna start a new challenge when I've finished this one! Oh, and my own twist? Guess what it is.

Henbit (Lamium amplexicaule)

For this week's #wildflowerwednesday reminder, surely the most under-rated wildflower of all time! Henbit is everywhere in Louisiana and it blooms from spring to fall. But on a recent Saturday, the blooms along the edge of a harvested field were especially open and lovely. Most people just walk over them, but if you get down on your knees with a macro you'll reap a reward!

So tomorrow's the day to share your wildflowers, be they common or rare. Share only your own photos, please, and tag me, +Bette Kauffman and #wildflowerwednesday . Wildflowers in the natural habitat only, please! And share the story that goes with the photo: where you found it, how you got the shot.

Do these look like tiny, tiny orchids or what?!

So... no great mystery here, I'm sure, but the wrinkle I'm adding to the #fourveggiechallenge in honor of Edward Weston is to not say what the veggie is and see if I can stump you!

Thanks, +Richard Harlos, +Heiko Mahr, and +Jürgen Hurst for starting this. Anyone can jump in at any time. And I had so much fun photographing my veggies that after I've finished this Weston tribute in b&w, I'm going to do four in color because some of them look damn good in color, too!

The soybean harvest was in full swing in Newelton, La., back in August. Tractor-trailers were lined up on all roads leading to weigh-in at the elevator.

Manzanita
Arctostaphylos patula

For #wildflowerwednesday  curated by +Bette Kauffman 

This is a shrub that is common on the wet side of the Pacific Northwest.  There's a lot of it on the Oregon beaches, so I presume that it likes sand.  This one was growing in the volcanic soils at the Cascades crest near Santiam Pass.___Gold Star

Crowpoison (Nothoscordum bivalve)

Is this stuff really poisonous to crows? I don't know. But that's what it's called. And tomorrow is #wildflowerwednesday! So share your photos of wildflowers in their natural habitat and tag me, +Bette Kauffman and #wildflowerwednesday .

Crowpoison grows in lots of places in Louisiana. This I found in a road ditch near a culvert where the ground tends to stay damp. It's also called "wild garlic" and the plant looks like wild onion but without the odor. The flowers are tiny, and these were swaying in the breeze. That's why the focus is soft. I suppose I could say I was going for a dreamy effect, but the fact is, I was using double extension tubes, it was cloudy so light was low and the wind was blowing. 'Nuf said.

Looking forward to your shares tomorrow!

Simple Gifts

Lyrically inspired: Simple Gifts - Yo-Yo Ma and Alison Krauss

Henbit (Lamium amplexicaule) is surely the most underrated of plants. It is always, always classified as a weed and most people walk over it without giving it a second look. Here in Louisiana, it is everywhere. It blooms from spring until winter. The young tender leaves are edible. It serves as ground cover and prevents erosion. And unless you get down on the ground and examine the flowers through a macro lens, you will never know that they look like orchids. I found these on the edge of a cornfield yesterday. But they are truly everywhere!

Crowd-Source Funding?

LSU Press turned down the book. A proposal is still in the hands of one publisher, Acadiana House in Lafayette, La. Interestingly, the editor who turned it down remembered the exhibit well, she said, from when it was in Baton Rouge. But she turned it down anyway because her publishing calendar is full for the coming year.

Looks like I'll be finishing it myself and attempting to sell it through Blurb. One of my students suggested using one of the crowd-funding sites to raise enough money to buy a bunch of copies from Blurb to get a discounted price and then sell them myself.

Has anyone had any experience with that? Should I use one or several crowd-funding sites? Which one(s) for this kind of project?

Thanks to +Cheer Nature for this wonderful contribution to #wildflowerwednesday. A beautiful flower in a beautifully composed shot with perfect focus and DOF. Well done, +Cheer Nature!

Commelina - Asiatic Dayflower - these beautiful litte flowers seem to reflect the beauty of the blue skies above. It is such a pleasure to see them bloom right after the rains. 

This post is for  +L Kennedy  who takes such a great pleasure in observing nature and posting interesting snapshots with lovely proses/ poems. She specially likes blue skies - you can see many photos with lovely blue skies in her stream. That is why dear friend, here is a flower that seem to reflect the blue skies for you :-) Thank you for your passion in simple things that Nature has to offer us. It has always been a pleasure to interact with you.

I could have used one of these leaves getting between buildings in the rain today! Thanks for +Dorothy Pugh from #wildflowerwednesday .

A blooming Umbrella Leaf (Diphylleia cymosa), seen on Standing Indian Mountain in the Southern Nantahala Wilderness (near the Georgia border) in the North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains on May 27, 2013.  Its NatureServe conservation status is G4 (apparently secure). This is one of the largest leaves you will see outside the tropics.

Long Live the Queen

Along Highway 82 in Western Louisiana headed toward Texarkana and the Arkansas Native Plant Society meeting, the Queen Anne's Lace (Daucus carota) nodded in the breeze close to the road. Who could resist? What traffic?

It's #wildflowerwednesday , folks! Share your own work only please, and keep it to wildflowers in their natural habitat. And tell the story of the shot! I love to know where and how you got it. Tag #wildflowerwednesday and me, the curator, +Bette Kauffman. See you tomorrow!

And it won't be so cold in December, right? Well, regardless, +Bette Kauffman is coming to town--God willing and some nut doesn't set fire to the infrastructure again! So it's photowalk time. Calling all Chicago and vicinity photogs. Hope you can join me. We'll gather at the Bean for the obligatory group shot there, and I want to check out what has transpired with the construction that was underway in Millenium Park last time I was there. After that, I'm easy. We can go anywhere y'all are inspired to go, including back up to this beach where Tom and I were freezing our tushes back in March 2013.

Beast of Burden

A leafcutter ant (Atta cephalotes) carries more than its own weight and size across the vast expanse of red mud that the colony has churned and tunneled into a nest. Such an amazing phenomenon! They carry these bits of leaf below ground and grow food on them.

Also for #macroaddict +MacroAddict, curated by +Sandrine Berjonneau, +Jean-Pierre Malézieux, +Christian PR, +Den Bassi, +Ruth Hochholdinger & +Mia Morvan.
