Lotus Carroll1,777,944This is the Event for our June Self Portrait Challenge: "Minimalism"  A Minimalist self portrait image contains very little other than you or a part of you - there are very few or no props or background elements at all in the image. Often, the composition includes a great deal of negative space. Here is where you enter your ONE "Minimalism" Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST June 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month.

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.

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

An absolutely phenomenal album.

It's DAY TWO of REVEALS
from the 2015 - 15TH ROUND
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What you are about to experience 
over the course of the next 10 days is pretty awesome.
We play a game - 500 photographers and myself - a 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 a few times a year 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  

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
There are 10 categories:
This is the first - the "*RISK*" album.

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)

Friends will know that I have not been much on G+ in the last months.  I have been part of a different life rhythm - which includes today, the news that my father, Stephen Edgington Jordan has passed away.  (it was not unexpected)  I was able to share rich time with him this December and will be returning to Oregon for this week in memorial.

My Father put my first camera in my hands.  His.  A German Exacta.  My first "Assignment" - age 12.  Family vacation.  We swept over a mountain pass,  I saw the Tetons for the first time.  I could hardly hold in my astonishment.  "Praise God Praise God I cried, even as I ran a clicked.  Though I tried not to shake, cause it was Kodachome 25!

I am currently working on a poem, but my father fanned in me a great love of music, art, adventure ,and the natural world.  Thanks Dad, for your rich legacy in my life.

seeking some ADVICE.

I work for a group (actually a political administration) that is interested in maintaining photo albums which in turn link to a website.   These albums would feature a blend of news photos, public events and folks who interact with my boss and want to get a copy of their photo.  In the past we used Picasa, but it appears Google is marginalizing or even closing down Picasa.  I want to know what people might recommend instead of Picasa.   Here are some of our criteria.

Most Galleries are public, but I am not really interested in using a Google profile.  We would rather have folks who come to our web-site be lead to the galleries, rather than just have anyone view them from Google Photos.  (Having a Picasa Gallery meant that we were able to lead people to the galleries.   If I use Google albums, I think we may be more public than we desire.)

We do want people to be able to download photos, but would consider a setup which involves some kind of password protection for download.

We desire to link to either specific albums or photos.

End of an Era.

I haven't been much around on Google Plus, cause I have been up to my elbows in work.  This is the last week (not counting next Monday) for my boss, the Governor of Arkansas, Mike Beebe.  (After 8 years, our most popular Governor ever, has been term limited out.)  The last month has been all about archiving and last goodbyes.  I start work for his successor,  Asa Hutchinson next week.

Semi-wordless on Friday.  Cause  I just couldn't wait till next Wednesday.

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...

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.

Hello Dog, Hi Cow
