Gailen Mapes62,357Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  N-Q - 9 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 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 Mapes2014-04-09 10:48:3515210216CC G+

"Error performing the requested action because of a domain restriction" is a frequent error you could have displaying adding people from any shared circle. It doesn't block the chance to add people, it doesn't allow you to import some of the users inside the shared circle.

Thomas Hawk6,156,0612,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 4 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.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi.  Today's , part 4 of 5, today, represents Mi-Sh.  I'll share the last remaining circle tomorrow.  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 part 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/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6f*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.2013-09-04 15:53:284915966104CC G+
paula contreras2,511The BestBeen on G+ for about a year now and have met some of the most amazing people.  Photographers, Story Tellers, and now some of them friends.Well I don't usually do this, in fact other than sharing a single person at a time, I have never shared a circle.  High time I did and just wanted especially those just starting out on G+ to have a glimpse of some of the best.The best you say, yes the best.My circle count consists mostly of photographers and I am pretty picky about who I circle, but there are a couple of people in this list who are just awesome and appreciate photography so much that you will definitely get shared a lot if nothing else.  These people are also the ones that interact on G+ the most, so if you want content in your stream, than here ya go.So take a look, take the whole circle or just peruse through and find your best peopleShow less2013-06-10 20:31:3220057319CC G+

Gailen Mapes30,231Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera L-Q - 4 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 500 members.I am now sharing one circle per day, for the reason see: https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/posts/RrPNTzHhQuHAs before these circles are photographers that I admire. They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to May 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting Msy 1st.)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 #handpickedcircles   #sharedcircles #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle2013-05-18 11:31:4139817417CC G+

Stephanie Calahan0FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 1 of 4My goal was to crowd-source a list of women on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and , I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1310 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone (this is shared public too).If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  See the bottom of this message for the original post where names were collected.I thought you would want to know that you have been identified as someone the G+ community should connect with!  I don't send out notifications unless there is 100% warranted.#Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.What You Can Do Now* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post to public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share our brilliance.Original Post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/HHzp7g9aW9t2013-05-08 19:56:31324401632CC G+

The little gentleman

One of our dear friends got married last month and she asked that Spawn Two be a part of her entourage, him being her godson. So off we flew to Victoria, BC to join them in such a joyous occasion.

Here's Spawn Two looking dapper in his suit, waiting for the rest of the bridal party to arrive. :)

The person with the red(ish) umbrella

A few days ago, +Brandon Luk posted one of his photos of a girl playing with a red umbrella in the water. It was taken during our fun photo walk last May.

Since it's his birthday, I thought I'd post a photo of some random person holding a red(ish) umbrella right side up. Just because. ;)

Happy birthday Brandon. I'm only about a half hour late, right?

Evidently, +Eustace James  is an actual person and not just a cardboard cut out legend. I finally got to meet him last weekend and we even sat at the same table. He is very nice. :-)

Yay, it's Friday. That means the weekend's here. Oh wait, I'm a photographer. Weekends don't apply to me anymore. Tomorrow is our first wedding of the season. Hopefully it doesn't rain. :-)

But anyway, here are some flowers for you, my lovelies. Lookee here, +Brandon Luk. These were the not-so-trampled upon flowers from last weekend's Toronto Island photo walk. ;)

The vivacious and beauteous +Sandra Parlow. I was so excited to finally meet her in person last Saturday during the Toronto Islands Photowalk. It was great to see familiar faces and to meet some new ones, too.

Assignment for Jake Johnson

Last week, +Jake Johnson was handing out personalized photo assignment to anyone who wanted to be motivated. The assignment is chosen based on what knows of the person according to the profile info or even through interaction with them.

I've been in the slump again for the last couple of months and I definitely needed the motivation to pick up my camera and shoot anything. So of course I signed up. Here is what he told me:

"You love food and photography, so logically we would combine them right?   I want you to cook an amazing meal this weekend and photograph it."

I went the comfort food route. Here's a dish I loved to eat as a child and can recreate even with my eyes closed. It's called pineapple chicken. It's basically a chicken stew with pineapples, tomatoes and coconut milk. I added some sweetye... more »

Last Monday's supper: Baked chicken breast in coconut crust, Pineapple fried rice, and steamed asparagus with bacon. Actually we also had Maui-style ribs but they were in a different plate. ;)

Happy Friday, everyone. It's almost the weekend. Yay!

Happy birthday dear +Elizabeth Lund! Hope it was a great one for you. :)

Final Plus Post

The end of the story... or is it?

Have you ever encountered a book that you simply cannot put down? You get so immersed in the story and the characters and you just want to keep reading. You enjoy it so much that you just don’t want it to end.

That is exactly how I felt about the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers  ran by +Robin Griggs Wood . For 13 weeks, it was like being lost in an enchanted book.  It wasn’t just filled with instructions and how-tos; it was full of magic, beauty, colours and stories. It had characters one can relate to and laugh and cry with. There was a well-loved fairy queen who ruled the kingdom with much grace, wisdom and beauty. Alongside the fair queen were the other fairies and pixies that helped ran the kingdom smoothly and efficiently, sprinkling unicorn dust of happiness everywhere. I wish I didn’thave to... more »

Have a wonderful weekend ahead, everyone.

NEW: In The Spotlight –– Announcement Post

It's time to show your fellow Google+ photographers some appreciation folks –– and I will provide you with the forum for exactly that; the brand new In The Spotlight circle.

What's the In The Spotlight circle?

It's a circle for my favorite photographers as well as yourself and your favorite people (it could be people you know or people you admire but never interacted with). It's the hottest circle yet here on Google+, a circle you definitely want to be a part of. 

Who can participate?

Anybody. As long as the main focus lies on photography. It's neither a pro circle, nor an amateur dito. It's a circle for great and active people loving the art of photography.

How can I be a part of this?

It's verysimple. Jus... more »

A C-5 Galaxy was in town a few days ago. We watched it come in for a landing a few times. It was amazing to watch this massive beast maneuver in a seemingly effortless manner.

What a beautiful day. The sun is bright and it is a warm day out at 6°C. Bring on the shorts, tank tops and flipflops. Heh.

Even more important is that it's the +Robin Griggs Wood Appreciation weekend. Why? Just because we can. ;)

Seriously, it's because she is one of the most amazing people someone can ever meet. She is a dedicated and benevolent (my new favourite word) mentor, has a heart of gold and a beautiful soul.

It was a great honour to be a part of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers under her tutelage.  Thank you for everything you have done for us, Robin. I hope you have a most wonderful weekend. Here, have a feather. ;)

Holy cooper's hawk! I thought somebody threw a rock on our window. Scared the bejeezus out of me. It was a Cooper's Hawk slamming on the window as it tried to catch the squirrel on the bird feeder. The squirrel got away and the hawk went away empty handed taloned. ;)
