Bette Kauffman25,676+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 Kauffman25,676Yes, 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 Mapes68,130Hand 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 September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 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 +2014-09-26 10:51:14153002

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

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

Gailen Mapes58,711Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera I-K - 26 of 30Note: 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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. 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 +2014-01-26 11:33:0714210310

Little Red Schoolhouse

Stumbling upon this in north-central Lousiiana was a trip down memory lane. I grew up attending a little red one-room schoolhouse just like this. Yes, Plussers, I really am that old! The image I posted for #wordlesswednesday this week was inside. I was so thrilled that the doors were open and I could go in and walk around. I could almost hear kids whispering and snickering and my sole classmate at the front going through his lessons with the teacher, slowly and painstakingly, while I gazed out the window or, more often, read books because I was already finished.

The teacher's name was "Mrs. Brock." She's the only pre-grad school teacher I remember, and I remember her because she brought me stacks of books to read from the public library in town. I don't remember the classmate's name. I remember the books... wonderful, amazing... more »

Green Eyed Hiver

I was hiding at a rendezvous point in a wooded area near Hive City waiting for +Alex Lapidus to complete a perimeter reconnaissance when, much to my alarm, a pair of green, onion dome-headed creatures appeared moving in my direction. Suddenly the head of the leader popped open and up came a slender periscope with one big green eye on the tip. As the periscope turned slowly scanning the terrain, I carefully slipped a can of beer out of my back pack and flung it as far as I could. The Hivers moved toward the sound of the beer can exploding on impact and I fled. Glad to see you got out okay on your own, Alex!

#wildflowerwednesday is quite sure the designers of hummingbird feeders--the plastic ones with the red plastic flowers--must have been looking at these beauties! Thanks, +Bob Danley.

#wildflowerwednesday  - Hummingbird Trumpet
Epilobium canum blooming at Florida Wash (Santa Rita Mountains, AZ).

Natural History Notes: This species is a member of the Evening Primrose family. The flower is unusual in that is connected to the main stem of the plant by a "floral tube"...the base of which is the ovary. This plant blooms summer through late fall in California, Arizona, Utah and Wyoming. Reference: Brandenburg 2010.

For Edwards

Sometimes you have to share what makes you feel better! I went into the archives for this one to commemorate a humble, wise and gentle man we laid to rest this afternoon. I'll miss you, Edwards, dear friend.

And tomorrow is #wildflowerwednesday! Edwards would appreciate that I am using the common beauty of American Swallowtail (Papilio polyxenes) on milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa) to both honor him and remind y'all to share your wildflower photos tomorrow.

The rules are simple: Your own photos of wildflowers in their natural habitat, and I appreciate a mention as the curator. And where and how did you get the shot? I encountered this beautiful pair in the Vernon District of the Kisatchie National Forest.

Ladies Tresses (Spiranthes nadia cernua)

So... at #MillwoodLake with the Arkansas Native Plant Society last Saturday, my obsession with wild orchids, Spiranthes in particular, got a good boost!

Today is #wildflowerwednesday , and I am feeling particularly blessed because my university is closed and I have the total gift of an unexpected day for catch-up interspersed with pleasures like enjoying your contributions! Be sure to tag me, +Bette Kauffman, the curator and #wildflowerwednesday , and tell the story of the shot and of the plant, if you can! (BTW, I owe a tornado that ripped through Monroe Monday for this day off. Quite a lot of damage but no one was killed and only a few minor injuries.)

The story of this shot: We found at least two species, maybe three, of Spiranthes in Millwood State Park, at the foot of Millwood Lake. My notes are a little spotty because of my excitement and the drizzly weather! This one was a lone plant up on the hillside well above the water's edge, and I'm certain it was identified as S. nadia. Another time I'll share some photos of colonies of S. oderata that were right down on the water's edge. For this one, I got a damp knee but it was relatively easy to shoot.___

Ooops! I forgot to make this public, so I'm resharing with an apology to those who get hit twice!

So long, summer!

At #WhiteCliffs for #hqspcolor. +Lou McCorkle challenged me to this #hqspcolorsplash and I'm happy to share this flowering dogwood leaf that I just encountered Saturday in the White Cliffs Natural Area along the Little River near Ashtown, Arkansas. What a beautiful area! And I did not realize until Saturday what glorious color the flowering dogwood provides in autumn. So here's the rules:

1.share one photo (your work) with lots of color to brighten your followers day
2. Mention the person who tagged you
3. tag 3 new persons to join the game
4. Paste the rules of the game in your post
5.  Hashtag   #hqspcolor    

And I invite +Christina Lihani, +Sandra Parlow and +Sabeena LoBello to have a go at it.___Ooops! I forgot to make this public, so I'm resharing with an apology to those who get hit twice!

At #WhiteCliffs in west central Arkansas, the flowering dogwoods are covered with bright red berries and the leaves streaked with dark coppery red.

Spent late Friday and all day Saturday with the Arkansas Native Plant Society. Saw much beauty and came home with about 300 shots to process! Also had the great pleasure of meeting +Eric Hunt!

Look at the edges! Fringed gentian is new to #wildflowerwednesday. Thanks +Bob Danley!

#wildflowerwednesday  - Fringed-Gentian
Visited Bluff Spring Fen (northern Illinois) recently and found many Gentianopsis sp. in bloom.

*Natural History Notes": "Gentians" bloom late summer, early fall when most everything else is brown. This particular location is a designated Illinois Nature Preserve with many "rare" plants...plant species list of 500+! I did not get good photos of the plant leaves to drill down to whether this was a Greater or Lesser Fringed-Gentian. No matter the flowers were large and beautiful. Hope you enjoy :-)___Look at the edges! Fringed gentian is new to #wildflowerwednesday. Thanks +Bob Danley!

*Mountain Laurel (Kalmia latifolia)

Not long ago (last week?), someone posted a photo of Mountain Laurel that had lots of pink in the blooms. +Fine Art Photography by Ken Barber, I think! I commented on the amount of pink in the blooms because I was remembering these I photographed in Connecticut a couple of years ago in the Enders State Forest near the Enders River. I don't get to photograph Mountain Laurel much, so I don't know which is more common, lots of pink or mostly white. The only detectable pink on these was the ring around the throat.

And... it's #wildflowerwednesday and I hardly need to post a reminder since it is already Wednesday evening in Louisiana! Sorry I didn't get one posted yesterday! And now I'll check out what y'all shared today.

Beyond Ideas

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field.  I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
doesn't make any sense.

Forced Feet Up Friday

For #feetupfriday by +Tom Tran & +Tisha Montgomery. My "forced" feet-up moment today was at Lifeshare, where I donated a double unit of platelets. And I didn't have my phone so I had to turn my computer around and use the webcam, hence the rather sloppy framing. Getting ready for RiverMarket tomorrow has me pretty busy, but I'm framing now and love doing it.
