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

Lead, follow, or get out of our way

I agree with +Karen Shackles  I saw a post today that said "I say try to share 80% other people's content, 20% your own" and wondered, what the heck are you talking about, that one of the stupidest things I've ever heard.  

If you want me to unfollow you, do exactly what that guy advised.  Whenever I see someone who mostly posts things other people posted, I unfollow.  I follow people who are ORIGINAL, I don't follow followers, I follow leaders, and leaders are usually true originals.

Question everything, verify before sharing, and above all, think for yourself! Just because someone posts something does not make it true, and information presented as "expert" advice is often no more than personal opinion. 

According to various items moving through my stream today, I ought to be kicked off social media because I share mostly original content, and there's no way I can succeed as an entrepreneur (even though my business is in its 20th year). I think I need to do some circle tweaking. ___Lead, follow, or get out of our way

Microsoft reads your email when it wants to

I'm not talking keywords here:   "Microsoft accessed the blogger's private Hotmail account to trace the identity of the leaker, and that the company deemed this to be legal. The move raises concerns about Hotmail user privacy, although Microsoft's privacy policy states that the company may access a Hotmail (now Outlook.com) account's contents"

So, basically, MS says they can read your email when they want, for whatever purpose, not just advertising.   Interesting.

Does this mean Microsoft "scroogled" this guy?  lol

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.

Why is Android successful if it's so hard to create an app?

Everything comes out on IOS first. I've been waiting years for some things to get ported, hearing people promise their apps are coming to Android, someday.  Instagram took so long to get to Android that by the time it came, I didn't care anymore because I had already found other things.

I'm not buying an Ipad just because a couple of things I really would like to have, never get delivered to Android.  The value proposition just isn't there when everything else I want or need is already on my Android tablets and phones.  I was excited the other day when I heard +Jeremy Cowart was coming out with an app, then dissapointed when I found out it was +OKDOTHIS if you have an IOS device.  OKDOTHIS looks like fun, check it out, if you have an Iphone (P.S., I'm not whining, honest).

Why is Android successful if it's so hard to create an app?

Everything comes out on IOS first. I've been waiting years for some things to get ported, hearing people promise their apps are coming to Android, someday.  Instagram took so long to get to Android that by the time it came, I didn't care anymore because I had already found other things.

I'm not buying an Ipad just because a couple of things I really would like to have, never get delivered to Android.  The value proposition just isn't there when everything else I want or need is already on my Android tablets and phones.  I was excited the other day when I heard +Jeremy Cowart was coming out with an app, then dissapointed when I found out it was +OKDOTHIS if you have an IOS device.  OKDOTHIS looks like fun, check it out, if you have an Iphone (P.S., I'm not whining, honest).  

I know, it will get better.  For the end user, the value proposition is with Android as far as tablet devices go. I just can't justify paying double if what I really need, convenient, handheld, internet access, books, magazines, Netflix, and a couple of music streaming apps, are on Android. My Nexus 7 is great and my wife loves to curl up on the couch with her Nexus 10, and we both like our Samsung S4's.  Our kids have android phones, and the majority of our friends have android devices.  Even the people I know who used to have Iphones are moving to Android.

Luckily, we don't have to look at the code behind the apps, which I hear is so much more impossible to code than IOS.  I'm praying for you developers, but I guess we will just have to wait for the value proposition to get better on the development side.  I know there are plenty of Android users who don't have a problem paying for apps if we are given the opportunity (oh, I don't have HBO either, so I'm used to that situation, lol).  

Hey, and where's my flying car?___

Camping at the Kettle Moraine

Camping at the Kettle Moraine State Park (Southern Unit), Wisconsin.  Circa 1965.  That's my mom sitting in our VW, probably reading a book, my dad's guitar against the tree.  I'm guessing I must be around here somewhere as I was probably two or three years old (unless I was with my grandparents in the next state).  I remember that side tent because my dad kept it and used it with his '73 camper.  It was yellow and brown(?) and had all the sides including a small room for the portable toilet This was the first of three Volkswagen campers my dad owned, and the last one (an '87 Weekender) is in my garage waiting for some minor maintenance before I take it out this summer.  I don't remember seeing this picture before last year when my dad passed and I retrieved the old photos.

Camping at the Kettle Moraine State Park (Southern Unit), Wisconsin.  Circa 1965.  That's my mom sitting in our VW, probably reading a book, my dad's guitar against the tree.  I'm guessing I must be around here somewhere as I was probably two or three years old (unless I was with my grandparents in the next state).  I remember that side tent because my dad kept it and used it with his '73 camper.  It was yellow and brown(?) and had all the sides including a small room for the portable toilet This was the first of three Volkswagen campers my dad owned, and the last one (an '87 Weekender) is in my garage waiting for some minor maintenance before I take it out this summer.  I don't remember seeing this picture before last year when my dad passed and I retrieved the old photos.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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/

I'm going to be busy for awhile

I think this year I got more than I expected from my wish list, and even things I didn't wish for, but someone knew I would want.  Think the things below might keep me occupied for a while.  I'll watch #jamesbond  and build a #volkswagencamper  while waiting for summer so I can take my real camper to the woods.

Save the Internet in the United States

The FCC is thinking about allowing Cable and Telco companies to filter what internet sites you can see, based on how much money they are paid by the sites.  Imagine every internet search returning only paid results.  President Obama appointed a cable and telco lobbyist to head the FCC, and now the inevitable is happening.

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.

Hey Amazon, I'm still not buying a Kindle - how a Windows 8.1 tablet infiltrated my house

I've had Amazon Prime for several years, and I love it, except...  For years I've been aggravated because with our Nexus tablets and android cellphones, we weren't allowed to watch Amazon Prime videos (or even purchase videos and movies) on anything but a computer.  

This week I bought an Asus T100TA running Windows 8.1.   The screen detaches from the keyboard, so I have a netbook when the keyboard  is attached, and now with Bluestacks installed, I have a Windows 8.1 / Android tablet with the screen detached.  And I can watch Amazon Prime Videos like the Daily Show, on my tablet.  And, when I want to watch Youtube video on my tablet, I no longer have to be told the video isn't available on "mobile".

Hey Amazon, I'm still not buying a Kindle - how a Windows 8.1 tablet infiltrated my house

I've had Amazon Prime for several years, and I love it, except...  For years I've been aggravated because with our Nexus tablets and android cellphones, we weren't allowed to watch Amazon Prime videos (or even purchase videos and movies) on anything but a computer.  

This week I bought an Asus T100TA running Windows 8.1.   The screen detaches from the keyboard, so I have a netbook when the keyboard  is attached, and now with Bluestacks installed, I have a Windows 8.1 / Android tablet with the screen detached.  And I can watch Amazon Prime Videos like the Daily Show, on my tablet.  And, when I want to watch Youtube video on my tablet, I no longer have to be told the video isn't available on "mobile".

I would have never bought a netbook before this, or a laptop with a touchscreen.  Though I still wonder how Windows 8 was released with such bad UI decisions, it certainly makes more sense on a laptop with a touchscreen or a tablet.  That said, I can tell I will be using the android emulator often when in tablet mode (and sometimes even with the keyboard).  

Using Windows 8 on a desktop was bewildering, frustrating and seemed silly.  Now with the changes Microsoft is making to Vista 2 in response to complaints (or rather, low sales), it seems it is becoming a bit more reasonable.  As long as my Quick Launch bar continues to work (yes, it makes much more sense in my mind than "pinning" to the taskbar), I think I might just be able to live with it.

Thanks Amazon and Youtube for ticking me off.

Remembering Christmas past

Some of our loved ones are celebrating Christmas every day now.  Fourteen years ago this week, my mother (pictured below with me in front of our Christmas tree) passed away after a short battle with lung cancer.  This year in January, my father passed away after a long battle with skin cancer.  There's no predicting when our loved ones will leave.  My mother had stopped smoking two years before her cancer took her in her late fifties.  My Father smoked and drank until he was eighty-four, passing a year later.   

I'm thankful to have a loving wife and children.  All will be here today (barring car trouble for the one who lives a few towns away).  Time is unpredictable, but love lasts for eternity.

Have a Merry Christmas and may love abound.
