Gailen Mapes61,276Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  L-M - 27 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 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. 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 +2014-03-27 11:02:15180027CC G+

Thomas Hawk6,146,1772500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OC*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-03 18:49:364857231117CC G+

Stephanie Calahan842FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 2 of 4My goal was to crowdsource a list of Fabulous Woman on G+ that are Actively posting and Engaging on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and #Gratitude, I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1311 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmWhat You Can Do Now------------------------------------* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+ #womenongplus #womenonline #womenongoogleplus #women #activeusers #activedirectory #activeengagers #fabfems #googleplusengagers #femalesongoogleplus #female 2013-05-09 17:30:57362381135CC G+

Or, I had a senior moment and missed them.  I thought I had avoided that this time but I still managed to miss +Magnus Ericson should should be around 454. I noticed some interesting things when compiling this circle.  There are a lot of people that moved into the top 500 that abandoned G+ for some reason or their interaction has become one post a month.  I have also noticed that many of the photographers in this group have a lower follower count than they had 6 weeks to 8 weeks ago.  I'm not sure what conclusion can be drawn from this but I find it very curious.To view the lists please see the following links.001 to 080: http://goo.gl/mmr7w  4'431'409 - 55771081 to 160: http://goo.gl/mXuup  55368 - 37454161 to 240: http://goo.gl/rLmy1  37343 - 30457241 to 320: http://goo.gl/o06Hy  30131 -25785321 to 390: http://goo.gl/747Lf  25760 -23013390 to 450: http://goo.gl/xDc2D  23006 - 21347450 to 510: http://goo.gl/sEnac  21321 - 194402013-02-23 23:33:1450013641100CC G+

In other Canadian news, RIP Jesse Winchester. I loved your music when you were playing The Yellow Door in Montreal. "Biloxi" still brings tears and makes me think of Hurricane Katrina. Keep singing, wherever you are, Jesse.

The Joy of Books

Type Books on Queen Street West challenges the notion that bookstores are dead. A literary community hub. Imagine that. Added to my list of bookstores to visit this summer. Along with more time spent at my wonderful neighbourhood library. 

I am sorry to see our local Chapters store in the historic Runnymede Theatre building replaced by a drug mart selling $90 lipsticks for yummy mummies, but don't miss the lack of real literary choice at this big box bestseller pusher. I don't miss their greeters either. I guess that putting a real theatre - you know, with a stage and actors -  in that building wouldn't make economic sense though.

Enjoy Type Books' magical video. And dare to dream.

"Kanheri Caves" for +Artistic Google curated by +Rob Robinson +Chee Yow +Jamal Masood +Patrick Sheeran and me.

Dating from the 10th Century CE, these caves lie on the outskirts of Mumbai, India, which was recently graced by visits from Google Street View.  Kanheri comes from the Sanskrit Krishnagiri, which means "black mountain" although the basalt from which they were carved is blue in this rendering.

Rosie the shiba inu wishes it would snow again and take away the grey ice that refuses to melt. 

And this, from Mary Oliver:

Now through the white orchard my little dog
romps, breaking new snow
with wild feet.
Running here, running there, excited, hardly able to stop, she leaps, she spins
until the white snow is written upon
in large, exuberant letters,
a long sentence, expressing 
the pleasures of the body in this world.
Oh, I couldn't have said it better
myself.

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of Wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air...
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark or even eagle flew --
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

One of my booky friends over on The Dark Side recommended Carlos Ruiz Zafón's masterpiece, "The Shadow of the Wind"? Another book to be savoured slowly because, although one would like to stay up all night to read it, knowing that there are still a few pages left at the end for the next day is the best part.

An Umberto Eco-ish intrigue set in Barcelona, a story within a story and, luckily, it appears to be part of a trilogy. 

Too many wonderful quotes to count, but this one, I thought, might draw in my friend, +Robin Cohen :

“Julian spoke with the clear, unequivocal lucidity of madmen who have escaped the hypocrisy of having to abide by a reality that makes no sense.”

California Dreamin'  (January 6 - 19, 2014)

The current theme is now CLOSED

To kick off a third year of Artistic Google, we paid our annual visit to the Google Street View location where it all started. We're sharing this album along with those from our previous visits to California.

This is one of my first Lensbaby images from just about this time last year. It is a vine on the wrought iron fence along my front path. This reminded me of Ben Shahn's art and I titled it "Menorah".

Rosie in her window for +DOG LOVERS Worldwide +The G+ DogPark 

Rosie, a shiba inu, joined our Canadian pack from an Ohio rescue three weeks ago. One of her favourite spots is this upstairs window, from which she can guard us from the mailman and anyone else. We think she was a breeder dog for her first seven years. She was picked up as a stray by animal control with severe flea dermatitis. As you can see, she recovered beautifully from those adventures. Her latest adventure has been the ice storm on Canada's south coast this past week. We are hopefully through that so she can just enjoy a good doggie life, tasty noms and the company of Karinoe, a shiba inu rescued from a midwest US puppy mill ten years ago.

A contrast in elements: earth, sky, water, fire and ice! Our Artistic Google team visited Iceland and Venice these past few weeks, and the images are stunning!

Come with us and float along the lazy canals and lagoons of La Serenissima under a golden sun. Venture into the colourful aquatic streets of Burano. Enjoy a tourist's wonder at the first encounter of magnificent St. Mark's Square. Kick back to a gondolier's serenade, marvel at the opulent palazzos or sip an espresso while taking in the passeggiata at dusk.

"Adrift" for +Artistic Google curated by +Rob Robinson +Chee Yow +Jamal Masood +Patrick Sheeran and me.

I pulled this picture of nothing off Google Street View last week. It's somewhere in the Venetian lagoon where the intrepid GSV camera guys have been plying the waters to our delight.

It just seemed right for a snowy Sunday when all is quiet and bright as the solstice approaches. A picture of nothing, to be savoured in the mind's eye when times are not quite as peaceful.

Burano

During +Artistic Google's Iceland or Venice tour, I couldn't drag myself away from the Venetian island of Burano. I had to fight to resist the urge to pepper my stream with image after image from the same location.

Instead, I've bundled a number of images into this video. This is not for submission for the AG theme as, not only are there more than the prescribed number of images, but also a video just does not fit the normal Artistic Google mode of presentation. Plus, you can skip all the images by just not watching the video.

Ironically, spending so much time in Burano meant I didn't really get to see much of Iceland in Street View, yet Iceland is near the top of places I want to visit in real life.

+Artistic Google is visiting Venice, now that the Google Street View photographers have recently covered the islands and canals. Our hearty ArtyGooglers are busily tarting up GSV captures this week and next.

It's chilly, grey, rainy December here on Canada's south coast, so I thought I would pull out my Italy album. Not Street View images, these. They were photographed on site with my trusty little Nikon FE, bought used, which used to go everywhere with me.

Last weekend would have been a good time to rake the leaves before yesterday's icing sugar dusting of snow that froze them into cakes. But the sky was clear blue and the air crisp and invigorating and the big maple across the road has finally stopped dropping. Filling 5 bags took no time at all. I was thinking about +Lynne Goodwin's French press coffee ...

Karinoe (with his toy) helped out by nosing around the fence looking for critters. The sparrows helped themselves to seeds in the feeders, perching in the little cedar that grew from a little sprout the size of your thumb. Kyoto was helping us in spirit. She always liked to supervise yard cleanup and the feeding of the wild things.
