Susan Porter11,009ROYGBIV REVISITEDWho is up for another short round of color?  Spring is in the air for us in the northern hemisphere and fall must be around the corner for those of you in the southern half of the world.  To me, that means there is a ton of color out there to be found.  So toss on some walking shoes grab the camera and let's have some fun.  Guidelines1. Let me know on this post if you're in and I will create a circle of participants.2. Each day will be a different color with that color being the star of the shot. Photos may be taken in advance.  No need to wait until the day to shoot the color. May 1 - RedMay 2 - OrangeMay 3 - YellowMay 4 - GreenMay 5 - Blue/IndigoMay 6 - Violet May 7 - RainbowOnly seven photos are permitted per person and should be posted 1 per day.   Spammers will be given the boot.  3. Shoot the actual colors.  No cheating and having Photoshop/Lightroom, etcetera give you the color.  (Tweaking, enhancing, layering or other techniques are ok, but no blue oranges.) 4. The color of the day should be the star of the shot. No nudity, drugs, violent acts or other photos that will violate Google policies.  5. Add the photo to the event or use the hashtag ROYGBIV in your stream6. Any camera/level of experience is welcome to join.  7. Have fun!Feel free to share the post/event to raise awareness.Collapse this postROYGBIV 2.02013-05-01 06:00:00107 
Jeff Smith60,963Welcome to The Selfy Sunday Project for April 7/13.Theme: True ColorsWhat we are looking for is a dominant color element in your Selfy.

Metaphorical and or literal interpretations  are welcome of course.There are 16 moderators who can assist you along the way with SPP.The Selfy Sunday Project is the cornerstone event in the Art of Self Portraiture Community. This Community was designed as a place to share self portraits and to learn, grow, and challenge one another.The Selfy Sunday Project allows everyone to share their results on a bi-weekly basis all in one event. __Selfy Sunday FAQ can be found here.http://goo.gl/ngQeFPlease check there first if you have any questions.

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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 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             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-17 11:37:29108624

The Infamous "Hi Cow" Haiku

Well, that was surreal.  I just met one of Japan's highly esteemed poets - Shokan Kondo.  He is in Arkansas to headline a meeting of the American Haiku Society (or something like that.)   I told him that I had written one haiku in my life.   So I recited it for him.  He liked it and had me write it down in one of his journals.

So... I just found a file that I thought I lost... from almost TWO years ago.  This is from Melbourne Australia, where I guess they do things like that.

I am always surprised when people find and old photo (or poem) and give it a plus.  Not sure how this was discovered today, but it is one of my favorite poems.   If you read it, tell me what you think it is about.

INCARNATION

a poem by Kirk


Who knows the eyes of the all-mall-ball,
The sight of a quillion minnows zigging at the sun,
her tongue splitting in a trillion forks,
or
twittering with song?

Who knows the taste of the all-mall-ball-
the diatoms and dates,
the grippy grass and rancid flesh?-
Her voice, a quadul-gum of cricket sound and shriek and speak and breaking glass.

Who knows the hear of the all-mall-ear
These desperate cries and sparking brains
with pierce of train, and trilling prayer?
Who knows the hair of all the hares in the world
and the scale of the fish at once?

I am a son of the all mall ball,
one of many made under EYE
and bound in place-
But given to a shrapnel soul
that likes to ride behind the eyes:

Twisting up I find my lips pulled taunt with flapping plates
or stretched like hinge from eye to eye,
the fringe of baleen as I sweep,
or snapped back like a bear-trap-
voice cracking to the splendor of descending worm.

Oh I am a mouth with chomping crowns...
bloody sabers draped in deer,
I feel the sear of hot blood in my eye
I roar

I feel the weight of heavy pads,
the feline breath and nail-
I ride the racing nerves until I break
into the fountain of the vulture dance,
and “Aren't you beautiful my love
with bobbing bald and warts and
carrion perfume about your wings.”

I sing the song of morning from the line,
then walk it with flicking tail,
I twine with your like-silky throat,
and find pleasure in your snakey eye.

I am dragonfly amidst cat-tail trees;
darting in shatter-realm of stalk and dock...
I am belly taut with life and kicking hooves,
I feel it move,
but have no thought to tell you how it feels,
I hold a thousand guppies in my gut
and the webbing of the silk-worm net.

I am dolphin dipping joy,
punching through the thick n’ thin,
laughing at the lemon sky.

I am the queen of nature
(born of her but giving birth
to all that gives us life)
Mother of an ancient “Son”,
building underneath my lungs
and soon the ONE of whom the mall-ball sings
(or twists within),
will find
the master of our liberation
walking in our eyes.





Note: This very weird poem is (among other things) a reflection on the omniscience of God. What I might try with imagination --living through the eyes of other beasts or men (or Mary in the last verse) –-is a world that God knows in its absolute fullness. He sees from every place, all at once and all the time. No thing is hidden from his eye. All things belong to Him. And we shall behold Him.___I am always surprised when people find and old photo (or poem) and give it a plus.  Not sure how this was discovered today, but it is one of my favorite poems.   If you read it, tell me what you think it is about.

So, I used to be able to drag the bell to the address tab anytime I wanted to see my notifications big.  This no longer seems to work.  Now it seems, I must open the Notification box, and then drag the title to the address bar.   Why did they make this change?  It is far less convenient.

So, now I am experiencing some cognitive dissonance.   I do make it a habit to say nice things to the women I work with (Usually about what they are wearing, and , never (in my mind) inappropriate.  And I have turned my head a time or two while walking... But what I am seeing here is just distressing.  So I am having to rethink how I speak to women.   I do not want to lose the luster of delighting  in beauty, but this is plain obnoxious.

As if the constant harassment on the street wasn't enough, the comments on this video should make you think about how much we need feminism.

To the people commenting that she should have played nice and replied back nicely, let me ask you two questions:

1. If you are a male, how many strangers approach you on the street like that?
2. If she had replied back to any of them, what do you think would have happened next?

Lewis' Law: ""Comments on any article about feminism justify feminism."___So, now I am experiencing some cognitive dissonance.   I do make it a habit to say nice things to the women I work with (Usually about what they are wearing, and , never (in my mind) inappropriate.  And I have turned my head a time or two while walking...

Hello Dog, Hi Cow
Salutations to the Frog
Everyone Wave.___

There is a last time for everything.

Not my picture.. .Cause I am the old geezer in the red shirt.  (Taken by my co-worker Jeremy, as i go whirling through the heavens... Gravity Style -- with another co worker... at the Arkansas State Fair.  it was free lunch break.  And MAN did the Nemesis 360 ever take me for a whirl.  I am frankly surprised that this is legal.  We hit some G forces like I have never hit G forces before.   And after I got off..  I thought.   Well, that was probably the last time in my life for THAT.

So, this last week I went to a wedding where are the groomsmen wore their pants in their socks...(which was odd) .and bow-ties and spenders.  But the bride also placed her vintage camera collection around the hall and on all the tables... so it was all cool.

The Pit in my stomach the size of Jupiter..

So a couple of weeks ago I had this premonition (because my computer was acting badly) and started copying photo files to a drive.  But I never finished the task.  I took my Mac into the Apple store last Friday --  they advised I copy all content off the hard drive first,  and then replace the drive.  I was to return on Monday (yesterday) with a 2 Terabyte drive to finish the task in store.  When I got there, they had already replaced the drive (contrary to our stated notes) and now are not able to get content off the defective drive.  they said it was making a terrible noise.  Anybody have any suggestions on best way to proceed?  The man suggested reclamation could be an expensive task (and not handled by Apple.)   I had already saved all commercial content to other drives....but this represents most of my personal photography taken over thelast two ... more »

Never thought an Ice-cream cone album would be so funny.  Lots of good laughs in here.. and now I want to eat ice cream!

We're officially on DAY FIVE of REVEALS
from the 2014 SUMMER SENSATIONAL round
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What  is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event every season for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers
(this round's judges were +Mike F Shaw +Robin Griggs Wood +Ron Clifford +mel peifer, and our winner from last round - +Mark Rodriguez 

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
Later today I will be posting the winners from this album.
There are 10 categories: This is the "*ICE CREAM CONE*" album. 
See my profile page to check out the "Sour", "Peace", "Your Worst Habit" and the "Your City" albums, already up.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*ICE CREAM CONE*" album,
1 item seen in 226 different ways.

For the last 8 weeks I have been part of a fantastic Mentor-ship program under the auspices of the ever creative, ever adorable - and excellent guide, +Sam Breach     The theme of our study was "isolation and storytelling"  --    I am not sure if this little folio really showcases all we learned, but I worked hard to incorporate lessons learned in this final folio.   (and its release just happens to coincide with +FloralFriday  #floralfriday   !   Should you ever have opportunity to be part of such a Mentorship, I would make a B-line.  (and if you are not following Sam, well you are missing the best of inspiration.)
