Georges Pauly14,521Thomas HawkShared publicly  -  30 Aug 2013 2500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 2 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.  Yesterday I shared last name A-Da.  This one , part 2 of 5, today, represents Da-Ho.  I'll share the remaining three next week.  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 3, 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/17ujpn*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.2013-09-01 19:56:06482204

Margaret Tompkins48,891>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 10,000 FollowersThe photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 10,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Many are fairly new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2013-04-14 22:18:2334135071158

I miss my zinnias.  And this year, I miss the Monarch butterflies that used to be so prolific in the summer.  This year, I saw only two.

Yet beautiful and bright he stood,
  As born to rule the storm;
A creature of heroic blood,
  A proud, though child-like form.

P.S. to Biscuits, our waiter - Bite me!

Say hello to my little friend

Sometimes you can look and never see what is right in front of you.  Working on an old image of a butterfly and noticed something I hadn't seen before.  A tiny flying bug no bigger than a pinhead, sitting on the flower off one wing.  Something I would never have spotted working with film.  Here he is blown way up.

Bee on Hibiscus

Near the end of the season, it gets a little colder, and they slow down for nice portraits.

Grasshopper through the window-screen

A rework of a photo I posted some time ago.  Soon the hibiscus that surround the house will be in full bloom again.

Promise

Sunset's fire on a winter's eve,
Barren and still, the hibiscus' stand watch over cold, hard ground,
Seedlings hold the promise of spring, and rebirth.

Football Fun

The wonderful thing about being a child is the ability to enjoy your fun without regard to whatever else may be going on. Many of the children in this picture had recently lost their homes and most if not all of their possessions when the flood-waters rose. For a brief time, that's all forgotten as they play.

Super C

The Jefferson County Antique Tractor Collectors gathered at the Jefferson County Fair last week.  See the tractor display always makes me a bit misty eyed, remembering my grandfather riding me around the Iowa cornfields on his red McCormick Farmall  At the time, I barely reached the center of the tire.  They don't look as big anymore, but I still feel that connection to Grandpa Ed.

Nothing like a double-decker pool on a hot summer day

Buckingham Fountain, Chicago, July 4th, 1987.  Eventually, the cops did kick them out, but it was really hot that day.  Always has been one of my favorite Chicago pictures.

Toy motorcycle shadows.

The Best Camera... Or Lighting?

Day 3, +G+ 365 Project 2012

This is a challenge, and I'm so ready. 365 days, 365 photos, let's see what we can come up with. I'm sure they won't all be gems (but I'll try), some will be mundane, that can't be helped. But I definitely have a mission... CREATE. It's not just about what you find or pure luck. Everyone has a vision that they want to communicate to the world, a way of seeing things that is unique to their experience. I know I want to do that, don't you?

I thought about stopping to take a picture of the sunset on the way home, but it's hard when you see the same thing every day in the same place. At that point the sunset needs to be really spectacular. So I came home, and knew I had to find something. I needed a more powerful flash and something with more direction than the built in on my camera, so I was using the LED on my Droid to search through my old equipment, when I realized, that LED sure is bright. Hmm....

Next post, the setup.

Where have all the good men gone, And where are all the Gods?

A friend gave us tickets to the local renfaire in Bristol Wisconsin recently.  It was just a quick couple of hours with my wife and oldest son so I didn't take but a few pictures.  I love this girl's sign, there's no mistaking what she's looking for.

Twilight at Sandals

Ah, vacations.  Next time I have to bring my tripod, no matter how light I'm trying to travel. Hard to believe this shot was only a tenth of a second handheld.  I wonder how sharp it could have been, with a tripod, before a couple tropical cocktails. lol.

Nothing says America like the Iron Horse.

I've been sick the last few days and haven't had a chance to go out and take anything new. Working through the backlog of pictures. I can tell from editing this one that I might need a more powerful processor on my pc. I ... get.... tired.... of ....waiting... lol.

Smiling through the mud

Just before the demolition derby at the Jefferson County Fair, Sunday.  Some got just a little muddy getting the track ready, and I think might have been having some fun.

A Nice View

I don't think my wife was too happy when I climbed up on the outcrop to take a few pictures.  I took this pano with my cellphone and ran the jpg quickly through Lightroom to punch it up a bit.  We'll be in Estes for another day and might head back into the park for a few more pics on this bright, sunny day.

Passion Play

On Easter Sunday last week, our church put on a play.  As always it was interesting and well done.  The crucifixion was a dramatic moment, especially when we realized it was actually and actor behind the curtain. http://www.crosscc.org/
