Sonia Kalčić13,036You are invited to a photowalk in the great outdoors! A day for you to spoil your senses; filled with fresh air, birds chants, luscious fall colours and nature sightings, to your heart's contempt! ~♥The starting location is situated about 45 minutes from either Brampton, Oshawa or downtown Toronto. Some of you might want to carpool down to Whitchurch-Stoufville, and from there, we will work our way down the country roads, back to Oshawa and the beach.Here is the schedule I have put together so far, but changes might happen as I go verify some of the locations beforehand:9am - Eldred King Woodlands, Whitchurch-StoufvilleArrival, gathering and preparation time in the parking lot. We will see how the weather is as fall gets closer, but light clothing should work just fine for the hike, as the area is quite protected from the wind. Bring anything you might need, like water bottles, bug spray (not a lot of them at all in the summer, so I would not worry too much) and bear whistles... Just kidding!  :P10am to 12h00pm - Eldred King Woodlands, Whitchurch-StoufvilleStart time! Hike through the old woods, falls colours, pine grove and a stop by the lake. We can spend 2 hours here easily, as there is about 15 km of paths to visit, and lots of nature details to see (moss and shrooms, yes please)!12h15pm to 1pm - Township of UxbridgeAbout 10 to 15 minutes away from the woodlands. Lunch break.1pm to 3pm - Township of UxbridgeA walk through the lovely New England style village. From what I hear, Uxbridge is the trail capital of Canada (who knew!), and within its network, you can observe countless historical sites. I will need to dig in deeper to find exactly what it is we could see there, but I definitely will keep it on the list for now.3h30pm to 4h30pm - Purple Woods Conservation Area, OshawaContinuing down towards Lake Ontario, maybe 20 minutes from Uxbridge. One of the only maple tree farms in the vicinity of Toronto, in Oshawa. It is not very big of a place, like one or two kilometres to go around the site, but a definite must-see if you want to observe fall colours. 5pm till sunset - Lakeview Park, Conservation Marsh, OshawaA sunset on the beaches of Lake Ontario! I haven't been to the conservation area yet, but I am thinking it could be a great combination of marsh and beaches, and while the sun doesn't set at the horizon per say (not behind the lake, that is), we usually get wonderful colours nonetheless.If on a grey day, nature and birds will still be there anyway! :DIt is about 50 minutes in between the first and last stop, so it's no too crazy of a drive, and really, beside gas, no expenses but taking in the beautiful nature scenery! Feel free to participate to whichever leg of the day interests you; no obligations, just fun!!Feel free to share any comments or suggestions.Invite friends to come along; the more, tFall Colours & Nature Photowalk2013-10-12 09:00:0022G+

Rob Elliott2,408Come join us as we take a trip through Niagara Falls, Ontario. Please read after the Bold for dress and gear (nothing major just don't want anyone missing out) We are going to meet up at about 11amIf everyone is ok with paying for parking then we can meet closer to the Skylon tower ( http://goo.gl/maps/K5Skw ) (It's about $5-$10 for the day) If you want Free parking  then we will meet at the Niagara Falls City Museum on Ferry St. These are driving directions to the parking lot from the 420 at the Stanley Exit. ( http://goo.gl/maps/LD94S )I'm not driving so it makes no never mind to me. Originally we were planning on doing Journey Behind the Falls and we will play Journey as a maybe. If the platform is open that it's a great deal and makes for amazing photos, if it's not.. then you have a foot long stone port hole to shoot through. (A blog with winter pictures http://goo.gl/b6Isq) We can make a decision when we get to Table Rock. If we choose to pass we can head up the Skylon which is open till 9pm, and we can decided if we want to do so near sunset, during the day, or after dark.  (or we can do both as the cost for both is under $30)I've been careful not to over plan, and with a small group we should be ok with a more fluid structure, though I figure we will be at the Fallsview Casino area for Lunch, and at Clifton Hill for Dinner. We will head down Main St, to the Fallsview Casino area, head down to table rock, and from there either go out towards Duffrin Islands, or towards the Clifton Hill area. After Dinner we will have the last weekend of the Festival of lights, the lit up Falls, and of course the Carnival like lights of Clifton Hill to end the evening off. If there is a strong wind, or there wet weather we will do our best to not turn everyone into icicles.Gear and DressPlease dress warm and in layers with something water resistant, the mist can chill you very quickly if the wind shifts and you are near the falls. Temperatures can change through out the day, so being able to strip off a layer if needed or toss one on is a good things. Though it's usually wind and temperature is Mild this time of year. Even I'll have gloves. If you have a camera or lens that isn't weather sealed, you may consider getting rain gear of some sort for it. If you want to take it out while outside at Table Rock. Certianly bring something to clean you lens, if the wind shifts you can get mist putting water droplets on your lens as far away as the top of Clifton Hill. Tripods can be big and bulk and seen as rude by some, please bring them, but you may consider a Monopod. If we do Journey, Tripods can not be usNiagara Photo Adventuring.2013-01-27 17:00:0015G+

Rob Elliott2,408We are going to take a walk down a part of traditional Toronto, that was at one point the home of Toronto's wealthiest residences at the turn of the last century and home to some nice pieces of architecture and a few nice parks. I'm posting this so that I can get a decent count on who will or may be coming. We will be walking down from Sherbourne and Bloor Street (near the subway station) crossing over to Jarvis St and heading down to St Lawrence Market with a stop at the Allen Gardens Conservatory. Below is a google map with the route. http://goo.gl/maps/hWfSYSo please feel free to join in the walk all are welcome, Cell phone or DSLR and take a nice walk, and what should be a fairly nice day. It's a nice short route, should take about an hour to walk at a comfortable pace, and I expect we should be at St Lawrence Market no later then 1pm. Toronto Jarvis St Photowalk2012-12-15 16:45:008G+

Scott Jarvie380,194UPDATE: it's online now: http://youtu.be/-DItFCAg4jM We like to call this a "PLUS ONE PARTY"Because people submit links to their albums and we look through the pictures and we plus one the pictures we like in the album.It's my way of giving quick feedback to people about which pictures really catch my attention out of their images. It's quick and yet helpful.Last time we looked at over 120 albumsLIVE PUBLIC HANGOUTYep it'll be a live public hangout again.Shorter and more awesome than last time.So if you LINK us an album make sure you know they will be on video and then on youtube. We're both really nice people and with people pictures we worry about commentary for fear they're related to you or something. But we may make commentary and you gotta be alright with that as well. The video won't be edited when it goes onto youtube.I'm basically saying: The easily offended need not applyTHEME = PEOPLE PICTURES+Susan Marinello and myself have a separate project going on where we're spending dozens of hours researching to find great photographers and create the most awesome list of "people shooters"https://plus.google.com/u/0/100962871525684315897/posts/UMBDiPKJqKaSo therefore we've made the theme this time to People pictures as well because that's what mood we're in.If you already have an album like that share it. Or maybe put together another one in the next 24hrs that you'd like us to go through. Professional work, weddings, families, kids, selfies, street candids, models etcJOIN INThis time we'll be linking the albums and having people join us as we go through the pictures... so you may be getting a lot more plus ones (eyeballs) than normal.FAQWe won't be looking at non-people pictures even if they're in the album.We'd rather not look at crazy large albums so try to keep them under 50 (but we can be a bit lenient)Please submit open/public albums specially since other people than myself will be wanting to view.Make sure you're following myself (+Scott Jarvie ) and +Susan MarinelloAlbum Viewing Party - People Themed (A Jarvie Production)2012-09-24 05:00:0079G+

Maybe you have an image that marked a moment in your life that was particularly incredible for you - that touched you in a way that is significant.  We can have a lot of fun with this theme - the most important thing is that it comes from our heart.  :-)So feel free to upload images to this event, and tag them:   #SharingOurLightWithKarenHutton  Sharing Our Light With Karen Hutton (Happy Birthday, Karen!)2012-09-07 13:00:0058G+

Gailen Mapes66,836Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  A-C - 14 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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 +2014-08-14 10:24:52192005CC G+

Piotr Tymiński7,625My very own circle of PHOTOGRAPHERS v.2A word of thanks to all of you who are a constant source of inspiration for me and a botomless well of beautiful work which is a joy to look at Real people here who post their own work. Amateurs and professionals. And no, I don't care about the number of followers they may have. It's all about the quality and, of course, quality is a very subjective matter so don't get upset with my choice:) I'm sure it can be a great source of inspiration for everybody. Many of the people in the circles have me in their circles and some do not, but take it easy, you don't need to circle me back - it's all about enjoying some great photography. And some of them (what a horror!) do not even call themselves photographers but somehow happily produce content which beats many so called "pro" guys.This circle is obviously under permanent development as new photographers are added when I come around some work I really enjoy. If you are into photography and I've circled you it means you will sooner or later be in this circle. I am simply putting some sense into my contacts - bringing order from chaos, you see... If you are into urbex and derelict climate please look for another circle of mine which is specifically dedicated to such kind of photography.Sharing is alway appreciated. #photographycircles #photographers  #photography #sharedcircles  #topcircles #circleshare #publicsharedcircle2014-05-30 19:07:18415261920CC G+

Gailen Mapes64,177Hand Picked Photographers Circles -Nikon Camera  A-C - 14 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 May 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting April 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 +Gailen Mapes2014-05-14 10:35:13199606CC G+
Piotr Tymiński5,225My very own circle of PHOTOGRAPHERS v.1Real people here who post their own work. Amateurs and professionals. And no, I don't care about the number of followers they may have. It's all about the quality and, of course, quality is a very subjective matter so don't get upset with my choice:) I'm sure it can be a great source of inspiration for everybody. Many of the people in the circles have me in their circles and some do not, but take it easy, you don't need to circle me back - it's all about enjoying some great photography. And some of them (what a horror!) do not even call themselves photographers but somehow happily produce content which beats many so called "pro" guys.This circle is obviously under permanent development as new photographers are added when I come around some work I really enjoy. If you are into urbex and derelict climate please look for another circle of mine which is specifically dedicated to such kind of photography.Sharing is alway appreciated. #photographycircles #photographers  #photography   #photographycircles  #sharedcircles  #topcircles #circleshare #publicsharedcircle 2014-05-09 17:06:42319291429CC G+

Scott Kelley4,083Please visit http://graywolfsurvival.com/Rusty Ferguson originally shared: ۝►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►The Power Ball, V7 from +Rusty FergusonNew Version 4-24-14 To Improve Your Engagement & Stream◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄۝A good shared circle will not only help you to grow your following and increase your engagement, it will also provide you with some quality people that you will be happy to have in your stream. For that reason, I have about 100 people in this circle that I would almost bet you will not share this circle. I also will not add everyone that shares my circle to my shared circles. I have a massive database of trolls and spammers. I am constantly updating that.  They are not here.  It includes about 4000 people. It is constantly updated.  Send people in my circles or communities invites and other spam and you’ll soon find yourself blocked. If they are not following you, I really dislike that.  If you’re doing it, I will know and you will soon be gone.I don’t need to be the number one most shared circle to the point that it means loading you up with a ton of people I wouldn’t follow. I won’t do it.This is a circle made up of mostly of those that are known to share circles. However there are also over 100 profiles with incredible content or promote worthy causes. Most profiles are from those that have shared my circles in the past.To remain in this Circle do this:Plus this post.   Comment on this postShare this CircleAdd this Circle to your circles When you get re-shares of circles that you share, you’ll find that you are in more circles.  It is in your best interest to share it to your stream and tell others about the benefits of shared circles. Are You New to Circle Sharing?Here are some quick tips for you. When you add a circle, many of the people in it will add you back.  Many more will if you have a profile picture of your face. To further improve on that complete your tagline and employment fields found in your profile. Instead of saying you work for IBM or Walgreen’s tell us something about you in that field. What you do at your job or what you’d like to do. It doesn’t matter. What I want to know is what you are interested in on Google Plus.  You’re profile should tell us about what kinds of post you make.The other day, someone told me some of the people that add the circle will delete it. She’s right, they will. So what you need to do is engage with the people you add. Leave comments on their post. When you do your name shows up and if you keep doing it you will get their attention and even those that delete will keep you in their circles more often. Those that don’t, probably are not worth your efforts.Also, for those post that you like or think your audience (followers and potential followers) will enjoy, share those post. When you share another person’s post you should plus tag the person that shared and it and the person that originally posted it. If you don’t do this, they will likely never know you shared it. If they do know they might come by and plus or comment on your share. How do you plus tag? Type the plus sign and then without a space start typing their name. This works best if you add them to your circles before you plus tag them. As you type their name, G+ will offer suggestions of people on G+. When it finds the person you just circled, click their name and you’re done. Now they should get a notification that you mentioned them in a post and they can go straight to your post and view your profile. Google wouldn’t be showing us the number of profile views if it wasn’t important. Google is trying to get us to improve our postings. I believe that’s the main reason they recently added it to our profile.  It’s a caret. Read between the lin2014-05-02 08:55:50452101017CC G+

Live Now!  Learn something about the power of the Channels Panel in Photoshop!

Live questions from the event page

+Scott Fegette joins +Ron Clifford +Jan Kabili and +Dave Bell in another information packed episode!

There is POWER in that Channels Panel

About +Scott Fegette 
Sometimes I feel like Photoshop ate my life! A prerelease copy of Photoshop 1.0 blew my mind in my mid-twenties and pulled me off the road as a hard-working, traveling musician - taking odd creative jobs cleaning up photos, designing CD and book jackets, and learning how to use the rest of the computer to help support my imaging habit.  A few years later I found myself working with guru Kai Krause helping to build the Kai’s Power Tools plug-ins and imaging apps, managing his website, and editing his popular series of Photoshop channel and selection ‘power tips'.  And a few years after that I ended up landing at Adobe as a product manager, working alongside Photoshop day in and day out in my role as the PM for Dreamweaver - finally landing at the mothership myself.  

About The Channels Panel
The Channels panel is one of my personal go-to panels in PS - but one that’s been misunderstood in many ways over the years - even though much of the old magic we could conjure up with it  back in the PS 3.0 era can now be achieved nondestructively with layer effects, there’s still a ton of power to be had in the Channels panel for creating and working with Photoshop selections and masks of all sorts.

What a privilege it was to be in this discussion on Mentorship and making a difference

Thanks for all you do to make +The Arcanum all it has become +Peter Giordano   and thank you +Robin Griggs Wood for all you pour into our lives every day.

#mentor   #FL   #arcanum  

Mentors Help you Unlock your Awesomeness

I had the privilege and honor to chat with +Ron Clifford and +Robin Griggs Wood about their years of experience Mentoring people along their artistic and creative paths.

Robin and Ron are applying their vast talents and mentoring experience as Masters within +The Arcanum  - a magical learning experience for passionate people motivated to Level Up their skills in photography and other visual arts.

I was humbled, honored and inspired during the chat... I learned so much, the least of which was the stark difference between teaching, coaching and mentoring.

One of the most important responsibilities of a Mentor is to create a safe and trusting environment where it is ok for you to be vulnerable, to share your creations and be open to feedback. In this way, we Level Up!

Thanks for watching and please let me know what you think!

She is a Nikon Ambassador wildlife photographer and Nikon has done a wonderful vignette on her and the Spirit Bear of the Great Bear Rain Forest in British Columbia.  The images are breathtaking.

Is This on Your Calendar Yet?

It sure is on mine!  I have been working for a very long time to get +Julia Kuzmenko McKim on the show and I have finally managed to get her to put some time aside (There may have been a cookie bribe in there) to share with all of you about her passion for excellence in retouching and Photoshop education, especially fashion and portrait work

If for some unthinkable reason, you can't make the live show, you can always catch it later on my YouTube Channel here:

It sure is on mine!  I have been working for a very long time to get +Julia Kuzmenko McKim on the show and I have finally managed to get her to put some time aside (There may have been a cookie bribe in there) to share with all of you about her passion for excellence in retouching and Photoshop education, especially fashion and portrait work

If for some unthinkable reason, you can't make the live show, you can always catch it later on my YouTube Channel here:

The Beginning of the Studio

My what big windows you have! (3 1/2 ft x 5 1/2 ft each.)

I am slowly moving ahead with the demolition and build of my Home studio.  It will be 14x25 and have 9 1/2 foot ceilings.  have a small 3 piece bath and makeup area.  My initial goal was completion August 2014, but ha!  it is now almost upon us and there is much to do.  Maybe spring 2015 is a better projection?

They were committed to bridging the gap between the creators of great content and the consumers of great content.  As I explored it, I embraced the vision of a creative community free of the noise of an open social network.  I knew august was going to be different.

How Much Do You Need To Know About Your Camera?

or

Technology, what technology

I was just watching Sue Bryce on Creative Live.  
For those who don't know, Sue is one of the most successful creative couture photographers of women I follow.  This coming on the heels of a conversation I just had with +Jessica Lark , a fellow Arcanum master, new friend and successful boudoir/style photographer and speaker/teacher, she had just echoed the same sentiments.

A question from the audience for Sue:

Q: what metering mode are you using?

A: I don't know

 It wasn't simply "I don't remember", it was a matter of fact "I don't Know and I don't care, it doesn't matter" kind of statement.

Why is that answer profound and something we MUST understand as photographers?

Q: what metering mode are you using?

A: I don't know

 It wasn't simply "I don't remember", it was a matter of fact "I don't Know and I don't care, it doesn't matter" kind of statement.

Why is that answer profound and something we MUST understand as photographers?

Because it doesn't matter what "mode" she is using.  She is working in manual and looking at the results on the screen and the values on her histogram.  What the meter thinks about it doesn't matter at all  THE RESULTS ARE WHAT MATTERS.  The meter doesn't know what I think or what I want.  Now If I were shooting film, I would have to know what the film was capable of recording and understand how to use a light meter to make the exposure the way I want.  To understand this, look up "The Zone System".  Know this though, on a Digital Camera it is more important for the creative photographer to know enough to create your vision so understanding everything about exposure is not likely necessary.  If it interests you to learn everything you can about meters, modes and exposures, go ahead and learn, but don't let it get in the way of your creativity. Am I saying don't learn about metering, f/stops and shutter speeds? NOT AT ALL.  I am saying you only need to  know enough to create your vision.

Sue helped me understand what I already knew but never verbalized when I first saw her on Creative Live a while ago.  That is -  how important it is to  understand that you  don't need to know EVERYTHING to be a pro, or to be a great photographer.  You need to know ENOUGH to arrive at your vision.  Those who know me have heard that when I write a book it's going to be called, "It's Not About The Camera!"

The Muse, Mentorship and the Ah ha moment!

"The Walrus and the Carpenter
Lewis Carroll

I posted a link a while back pointing to a pod cast by Arcanum Master Martin Bailey titled "A beautiful Anarchy with David duChemin". While this was a very worthwhile podcast the real treasure was David duChemin's book that was the subject of this podcast; "A Beautiful Anarchy, When the Life Creative Becomes the Life Created" After listening to the podcast I purchased the book on my Kindle.  To say that this was a life changing decision is putting it mildly.

When two great ideas come together:  I had already started down the creative path by picking up a camera two and a half years ago. Then came my invitation from +Ron Clifford  to join the Arcanum.  My art was jump started and brought to a whole new level thanks to my cohort and Master Ron. I didn't think it could get better then this; then I read "A Beautiful Anarchy".

I was about a third of the way through the book and had just uploaded my level 5 final submission. I hadn't given much thought to the level 6 challenge yet but was in no hurry. After all Ron's leaving on vacation and things are slow in the Arcanum, right? Right! I decided to take a quick trip to the Las Vegas Strip for a little practice. And it happened. I was visited by my muse. Everything I saw was as if I was seeing it for the first time. I was photographing things I had photographed 20 times as if it were the first, and these shots were good! I got home and downloaded my pictures and found and edited all of the photos for level 6 in one sitting. Whew!

The muse. Who knew that was a real thing? Because of my cohort, Ron Clifford , Trey Ratcliff  and David duChemin my life has been changed and I am deeply grateful.

Thank you all.

I love this, my wise and wonderful friend

Photo and story by +Kalebra Kelby

Recently returned from a trip to Prague and Budapest (that included my parents) and my dad forgot his camera, so he says to me...

“Well, you use your iPhone and I love your pictures! I'll just use your mother's phone on the trip. Better than nothing right?” (wink)

Right.

Fast forward to the two of us standing at the front of this beautiful church in Budapest.

Dad: (whispers) “Okay, I just stood next to you and took the same shot but it doesn't look like yours. Why?”

Me: (whispers) You didn't take the same shot. You took a shot—one that I knew (the second you picked up the camera) wasn't going to be what you wanted.

Dad: (not whispering as much and sounding a tad offended says) “What?! How could you know that?!”

Me: (suppressing a giggle) Because you were missing two things. Intention and a tip.

Dad: (actually, not whispering at all) “I definitely intended to take a good picture! Now, what's the tip?!”

Me: (poking the bear) I know you wanted a good picture dad but did you believe you could get it with that phone?

Dad: (now squinting) “Little girl.”

Me: (Uh oh!) Okay, okay! All I'm saying is...

I can always tell what kind of shot someone is going to get with their smartphone by how they pick it up to take the picture.

My dad's trouble started when he said, “Better than nothing right?”

Why intention matters.

I've never met a single photographer that picked up their camera to take a shot (they really, really wanted) that didn't pick it up with a swagger of confidence that their tool...ruled!

Wait. What?! Hahaha! (Moving right along.)

So dad, if you're going to use your smartphone to take pictures—own it! Once you go to take a picture with it, it's no longer your phone, it's a camera and, by the way, the absolute best camera you have at your disposal so treat it that way. 

Friends have heard me say that what's important is to examine your heart always because the spark of your true intentions will still be burning in the flames of your results. Turns out it's true for taking pictures as well. ;)

And the tip? 

When I want a wide shot I first turn on video, focus on the area I want and then take the picture. Because you took it in video mode the shot is wider. This is also a good trick for when you want something closer (without having to use the zoom—please, please, don't ever use the zoom on an iPhone.) LOL!

Dad: (smiling, whispers) “Now, was that so hard?”

Hahahahaha!! Nope. ;)
