Gailen Mapes74,959Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera I-K - 6 of 31Note: 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-01-06 12:02:34129409

Joni at 9 Months Old

Joni has come a long way from the photograph of her that you see at the beginning of this album. Not only has she grown so that she looks almost adult, but she is (mostly) obedient enough to be able to walk with us off her leash, in the woods and on the beach at least. She doesn't exactly walk to heel (not at all, to be honest unless she is on the leash) but she runs and walks a little way ahead before pausing and turning to see if we are coming along behind her. She will wait if I tell her to and will even sit when I ask, even though I am not nearby. If she thinks she knows where we are going she will sometimes run too far ahead, so this is something we have to work on, but generally she is getting better and better all the time. 

Here you see her at 9 months old, sitting up on the top of a bank in the woods. As part of the obedience exercises I... more »

Coastal Cliff Erosion Kingsport Beach

This was taken on another late afternoon walk with Joni and Linda at low tide with a threatening sky framing the horizon. (It frequently seems to be threatening over Blomidon Cliff that you see in the distance.... or is it that I just like to take photographs when the sky is heavy with cloud??)

Storms will often leave a changed landscape and on the latest of those walks we could really see the difference in the formation of the sandy cliff walls and the trees that had fallen down the sides of the face. The light was just hitting the sand and the end of that spit of land.

Our Streets Are Paved With Gold

It is commonly spread about abroad that the streets in Canada are paved with gold. This is meant to be figurative. However, as you can see, it is quite literally true in some places.

This was brought home to me when I looked out of my bedroom window one morning and this was what met my eyes. At last here is the proof! (It really did look like this.) For a bit of Friday fun!

Golden Waves at Sunset

There are moments of special light where the world is tinged with gold. This was a moment when we turned around on the beach walk, ready to head back. The beach was rimmed with golden crests to the low waves breaking on the shore. The effect only lasted for a moment or two and then the moment was over. 

Minas Basin, Nova Scotia, Canada -  Kingsport Beach.

Winter Roads

I was having a chat with my friend +Alexa KH the other day and said that I was about to go out, though the visibility was poor because of the snow. I thought as I wasn't driving (!!) I would take the camera to show just what I meant by blowing snow on the roads. It wasn't actually snowing at that point (I don't think, it's not easy to tell sometimes) but the drifting snow makes it hard to see the edges of the road and builds up drifts that can go right across the road. You can see that the snow isn't even very deep. Ah, the joys of a Canadian winter! :-)

Up Close and Tiny

02/26 - Macro

The 'macro' theme of this part of our B&W project got me thinking - macro (to me) = tiny or very close. Over the two weeks I took a close up look at lots of things by way of my macro lens and converter - parts of animals, vegetables and ... minerals! Curly hairs and outstretched claws on our cats, a finely chopped onion, many other objects came under the ruthless scrutiny of my lens.Because a macro lens is brutal in what it will reveal. Do you know how much it might put you off your food if you saw a tiny hair in the chopped onion? Or can you imagine just how many specs of dust are on the claw of a cat?

My submission today is something that caught my eye yesterday, in our kitchen which is still transformed into a building site during the day. I had to ask what it was as it was obvious that each of these tiny objects would... more »

My submission today is something that caught my eye yesterday, in our kitchen which is still transformed into a building site during the day. I had to ask what it was as it was obvious that each of these tiny objects would be separated from the strip. They are (for those non builders among us) nails for a nail gun. And I was told that they make them in sizes as long as this but as thin as a needle. The pencil and nail punch are there to give an idea of scale.

A Lovely Album by a Great Friend of Mine

I want to share this lovely post and the album by a friend I met on G+. I have worked with her closely for the last while and I think she has done a wonderful job! Please give her your plus love and comments on her original post. 

Thank you dear  +Alexa KH  - you were an excellent, motivated and dedicated pupil and I look forward to working together with you again. Congratulations!

My graduation album of my photography course with +Ellie Kennard

I wanna thank you my dear teacher because of motivating me ... This course is my best experience I've ever had, It really changed my way of photography!

Working with lights, using composition elements, color effects on the viewer, Golden Mean, Golden Spiral, Rule of Thirds, critiquing my own photos and knowing the right definition of all these lessons are the most important things I've learned...

I hope I was a good student, and of course I always would like to be your student!

New Beginnings Grow From the Past

01/26 - New Beginnings

New Beginnings of what? What does it mean? I'm glad you asked, or I hope you wanted to ask. :-).

This is the first of themed fortnightly posting in black and white and I have joined some of my friends in this 26 image challenge for 2015. So what is my own personal challenge? My aim in this challenge is to develop my black and white photography to tell some of my stories better than colour pictures could.

The image you see below illustrates my point. Here is a skilled craftsman who has a workshop full of modern tools and machines. Here, though, he is using a labour intensive method and an antique tool, to achieve the effect he is after. It is exactly the right tool for the job. It's not necessarily the easiest way, but it is the best way for him and for what he is making.

New Beginnings Grow From the Past

New Beginnings of what? What does it mean? I'm glad you asked, or I hope you wanted to ask. :-).

This is the first of themed fortnightly posting in black and white and I have joined some of my friends in this 26 image challenge for 2015. So what is my own personal challenge? My aim in this challenge is to develop my black and white photography to tell some of my stories better than colour pictures could.

The image you see below illustrates my point. Here is a skilled craftsman who has a workshop full of modern tools and machines. Here, though, he is using a labour intensive method and an antique tool, to achieve the effect he is after. It is exactly the right tool for the job. It's not necessarily the easiest way, but it is the best way for him and for what he is making.

Black and white photography is where it all started - historically and also personally for many of us. We now have tools that allow us to process our digital photographs in colour or in black and white, as we choose. So usually we choose colour as... everyone loves colour. And the picture comes out of the camera in colour. But that's not always best. Sometimes colour is a distraction. Sometimes, to tell a photographic story with the emphasis where you want it, black and white is the answer. My aim is to discover the right time and the best way to use this medium to tell my stories.

In case you are wondering,  the craftsman here is in fact my husband +Steven Kennard​​​, and he is making the beading trim for my new kitchen cabinets. The name of a previous owner of the plane he is using is engraved above his own name on the end as you can see by zooming in. He is following in the footsteps of craftsmen through the ages, keeping with the traditions of fine craftsmanship. This is also part of my aim in my exploration of my black and white photography in this project. I am looking forward to it and hope that you will follow me in my journey of discovery.

Steven tells me that this plane was probably owned by his grandfather who would have given it to him. He doesn't know who the previous name belonged to, but it was apparently the custom in England, on the death of a craftsman, such as a furniture maker or cabinetmaker for his tools to be sold to help his widow. His own grandfather (also a skilled woodworker) might have come by the plane this way.

Streams aren't what they used to be! Can we help fix it? Let's try to beat the algorithm. If you comment on my post here, I will go to your page and plus and comment as +Tamara Pruessner​ (she can't do it all herself) and see if we can't get our streams to show the posts that we want to see.

New Day's Hope

I have been doing a lot of thinking about how my main stream no longer shows everyone, or even a few and their newest posts, about how my own posts get increasingly smaller interaction, and how if my posts are doing that, then everyone's are.  I think the algorithm that governs what we see and what others see of our own stuff has gotten too restrictive.  And it frustrates me to no end - especially when I have 100 new posts in my stream and most are either 24 hours old, something I have already seen (and plussed or commented) or both.  Fresh isn't happening anymore and it is FRUSTRATING.

I don't normally notify anyone of my posts but for this, I am (and I am not even sure how many will get the notification - over 3500 in my circles).  What I am proposing is an experiment of sorts.  To all of those that comment on this post, I will go to your stream and plus the heck out of you, comment as much as possible, and over the next week, share a few my favorite posts.  Here is the catch - you have to share this post or something similar, calling your own circles to action.  

Let's see if we can shake up the algorithm a bit.  Let's see if we can take back control of our streams LIKE WE SHOULD HAVE.  Let's see if our streams start showing our favorite people again.  A week from now, I will make a new post so I can see if my stream has changed... hopefully, mine will and so will yours.

Joni Has a Job-She's a Carrier Dog!

At last! The big day has arrived! Joni has her first job.

Joni comes from working stock and there is nothing that gives her more pleasure than having a job to do.... especially if that job can include chasing her blue ball in her work breaks. This was her second walk as a carrier dog and she carried her blue ball in her saddle bags (along with about 2 pounds of additional weight) on her walk. She gets more exercise this way as the weight tires her out (or it's supposed to, anyway!). She doesn't seem to mind wearing the harness with the pack and still manages to fly over the snow after her blue ball. We thought you would like to see Joni in her new job. (Don't tell her, but the bags don't really contain anything that needs delivering, just some rice and lentils, or water. I don't want to spoil it for her.)

Coastal Cliff Erosion Kingsport Beach

This was taken on another late afternoon walk with Joni and Linda at low tide with a threatening sky framing the horizon. (It frequently seems to be threatening over Blomidon Cliff that you see in the distance.... or is it that I just like to take photographs when the sky is heavy with cloud??)

Storms will often leave a changed landscape and on the latest of those walks we could really see the difference in the formation of the sandy cliff walls and the trees that had fallen down the sides of the face. The light was just hitting the sand and the end of that spit of land.

Hungry Snake

It's bitter cold today and no reptile would be moving around, so this is a summer memory. We had fun this past year meeting up with +Alex Lapidus and +Linda Villers and we spent the day sharing with them some of our favourite spots. On our walk to the Kejimkujik seaside adjunct, we spotted this fellow with a frog in his mouth. The frog was easily 4 times as wide as the snake and the back legs (from my memory) were being swallowed as the snake began to ingest his prey. I can't interpret the look on the face of any reptile, but I am pretty sure I saw panic in the eyes of that frog. As we came nearer, the snake was startled and relaxed its grip for a second. The frog struggled free and hopped off and the snake, disappointed and no doubt hungry, turned to make his own escape into the undergrowth beside the path.

Hungry Snake

It's bitter cold today and no reptile would be moving around, so this is a summer memory. We had fun this past year meeting up with +Alex Lapidus and +Linda Villers and we spent the day sharing with them some of our favourite spots. On our walk to the Kejimkujik seaside adjunct, we spotted this fellow with a frog in his mouth. The frog was easily 4 times as wide as the snake and the back legs (from my memory) were being swallowed as the snake began to ingest his prey.

Joni Playing Ball

I was using different settings on my camera this summer, experimenting with motion captures and Joni was an ideal subject for this blurred motion study. Border Collie playing ball. She doesn't stop for long, just long enough to will me to throw it again.

It's not so green on the ground now, but I had better get out and play ball with her anyway as her energy only seems to increase in the winter! Have a great weekend everyone!

In a Blaze of Glory

Today I thought we could bravely face head on the blaze of colour in this sunset. This photo was taken from exactly the same spot as my photograph shared yesterday but that one was facing the gentler eastern sky. It is often the more striking and dramatic that instantly attracts our attention, while the soft and kind sits quietly just behind us.   This more muted one is found in this post:  https://plus.google.com/105804664540125819976/posts/bZZWRKiGAd2 .

I hope that your day passes in a blaze of fun and excitement with moments of moving and warm gentleness for comfort.

Look East

We were near the end of a road trip, after driving through some heavy rains interspersed with dramatic bursts of light through the clouds.

As the sun began to set the sky was aflame with colour and drama. The intensity of the sunset was almost overwhelming and Steven stopped the car for me to dash out to the side of the road, dodging rain drops to try to find a decent foreground for some photographs. I took a few and then I looked behind, to the East. The pastoral scene, with the last of the autumn leaves at the bottom of a green stretch of grass and bounded by a field of ripened gold corn was a beautiful foreground to the more muted, but still beautiful reflection of the garish colours in the West.

New Notifications feature explored

We now have 2 Notification bells instead of one. (Top / Lower Bell).

The Top bell follows you around all Google products, from Gmail to YouTube.
The bottom bell is for Google+ only and gives you more choices in how you wish to check your notifications.

Why, you may wonder?
I'll say wait and see: There's often a method in the Google+ madness! :D

Beautiful and Elegant, Alert for Danger

I guess she didn't see me as a threat when we were stopped by her. This deer was in the woods in Ontario, not far from Arnprior, where we were visiting in November. She was very close to us and stood still long enough that I managed to get several photos of her. Deer always make me catch my breath with wonder and when I was younger, they could move me to tears when I saw them. They have such a beautiful grace and elegance for creatures of their size that I never fail to be delighted at the sight of them.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, filled with joy at the beauty that is around us in whatever part of the world we are.

Joni is a Year Old

It seems as if she has always been a part of our lives and our daily routine. So it's hard to imagine that she is only a year old. At the same time it seems only a short while ago she was a little short nosed puppy playing with her blue ball under the rungs of the kitchen chairs.

Our Joni is now a year old and has all the best qualities of the border collie, developing more and more as she grows. She has the intensity (here she is watching the blue ball in the launcher that Steve is holding for her) and the energy. She has the intelligence and the love of learning. She also has the patience (as here) to wait until she is told to do the job she is waiting to do. When we take her out on her walks, as she runs free, if we have the ball and launcher she watches us and won't go far. She completely ignores anyone and anything else.

She also has the patience (as here) to wait until she is told to do the job she is waiting to do. When we take her out on her walks, as she runs free, if we have the ball and launcher she watches us and won't go far. She completely ignores anyone and anything else. If we have the ball, all we have to do is say 'down' and she drops to the ground. If she has the ball in her mouth then she is not quite so keen to do as she's told, though she just runs around us teasing us and trying to bounce it on the grass or the hard sand if we are on the beach.

She loves to run up the seats of the bleachers on the sports field, running along the boards then jumping from seat to seat up and down in her own private agility course. Here you see her on the top row, pretty much at the height of Steven's head, as he is holding her attention with.... you guessed it.... the blue ball !

A few people have said to me that they particularly missed seeing pictures of Joni, in particular my dear G+ friends , +Christina Lihani and +Ursula Klepper.  Thanks to you both for your friendship.

Cloudy with a Chance of Flowers

Yesterday the weather forecaster announced on CBC radio that it would be "Cloudy with a chance of flowers". I wish. I just had to share that with you all and hope it made you laugh as it did us.

On our recent road trip, as we were driving along the 401 in the direction of Toronto, the evening sky was really interesting and changed constantly. These fingers of light reaching down to touch the stretching bare trees were quite beautiful.

The sunset was stunning and I stopped to photograph it a little later, but I liked this one for today. It was taken out of the car window.

It's been pouring with rain all day today, melting the snow that fell on the weekend. The winter is settling in. I wish it weren't so early.

Coffee by Steven courtesy of Rancilio, Mug by Teresa Wingar of Ontario

For #coffeethursday courtesty of the two who love to see these on a Thursday - +Stuart Dyckhoff  and +Jason Kowing 

This gorgeous little mug is just the right size for a small Americano (almost a straight espresso). We love the work of this lovely potter, Teresa Wingar. Her sense of colour and the attention to detail in her patterns make her one of our favourite craftsmen. We each brought home a small mug made by Teresa as a souvenir of our visit to Ontario and her studio.

We're glad to be home, though we had a wonderful time with friends and family while we were away.

An Un-Anniversary Celebration

We are in Quebec city, having a great couple of days on our way home from a bit of a tour around friends and family in Ontario and Quebec. Last night we found a little restaurant, the Café de Paris, not far from the Château Frontenac in the old town and were sitting, waiting for our meal to be served. I was talking pictures of various things in the restaurant when the owner came up and asked if I wanted him to take a photograph of us... Um... Sure, I agreed. He then proceeded to stand on a chair with my camera and tried to zoom in with the lens (he couldn't as it was my prime 40mm) and then he complained when the lens was moving in and out (trying to focus). I asked him if he knew what he was doing and he said he did. Then he said that the picture was looking blurry. I told him how to focus and all seemed to be well.

I asked him if he knew what he was doing and he said he did. Then he said that the picture was looking blurry. I told him how to focus and all seemed to be well. Suddenly his hand holding the camera dropped and there was a crash! He had dropped a metal cup just to give us a fright. :D What a great sense of humour. He was Italian, perhaps that had something to do with it?

For some reason he had decided that it was our wedding anniversary and wanted us to gaze lovingly at each other, then hold hands, then finally we had to kiss and Steve was told to 'take your time'. So here is the picture. What a clown he was! He then asked us if we wanted an after dinner drink, on the house. That sounded good, so we sat and waited... But those promised drinks never arrived. Eventually we paid the bill and left. Anyway, here we are on our very merry un-anniversary.

We will soon be home, with lots of photos and good memories.___

A Bee on Every Flower

There is a beautiful clump of brightly coloured flowers that grows wild down the side of our drive. Every time I walk by it is buzzing with bees and a closer look shows that every flower has a bee. As one tires of the bloom and flies to the next, a new bee takes its place. The cars going by on the road below cause a constant wind that blows bees and blooms around, making it difficult to catch a still moment to photograph. I did manage this time.

Autumn Leaves near Arnprior Ontario

Those who have followed my postings on G+ have probably noticed that it's been a long time since I posted. No, I am not posting somewhere else, I have not moved to a new social network ;-). I have not been on a mentorship. I have just  been ill, not able to do what I wanted to. So now I am hoping to be able to get back into sharing some of the images I have taken recently.

This one, however, was taken this time last year, when I was in Ontario. It seemed a good time to share it, as the colours are still beautiful, though many of the leaves have fallen. I hope you enjoy it.

For all my G+ friends, most particularly my good friend +Ursula Klepper who is a terrific support and friend, behind the scenes. Thank you Ursula. One of these days we will sit on that bench and talk. Maybe beside a lovely lake such as this.

Attention Please Google Plus Helpers

Below this was my comment on the original posting. I am including it here so that my feelings are made clear. But +Natosha Davis has a genuine problem and others are also experiencing it. Can someone from Google help her out and fix the problem?

I am hating all the messages about 'let's move out'.
It's making me bored with my notification messages and my stream for the number I see when all they are doing is talking about another network.

And no, I'm not moving out.

I like it here. I grew up as a photographer here and learned so much from the mentorships I was given freely and hopefully I helped others learn on the ones I helped mentor. I even held am still holding a couple of (free) private ones for those who are shy or just close friends.

I understand that there are some real issues going on with G+. 
But I love being able to plus one the posts I like (even if they don't always stick) and know who else has commented on them. And I like being able to see a photo properly without scrolling. And I like being able to zoom in to see detail (and check metadata if I am curious as to how the shot was taken, or if the poster really took that image himself). And I love being able to actually recognise who has posted because their name is clearly visible. And I love being able to use a decent android app. Because often I access on mobile.

So I shall keep posting here. Because I like it. Warts and all.

Hold on Natosha, that can only be a temporary glitch. This ship has not been abandoned.

(Probably) Immature Wood Duck

Until I learn otherwise, I am saying that it is probably an immature female wood duck, as identified by +Mike Goodwin and seconded by +Stephen Thackeray -  thanks a lot you two! I will change the title once we are 100% sure. 

Another young bird photographed on the same overcast rainy day in Miner's Marsh in August. I thought it was a young mallard, but I see more clearly now that it probably isn't, as there seem to be no photographs of mallards with white stripes around the eyes and the base of the bill is not the right colour. There are many wrong things about it (not wrong, of course, just wrong for mallard) in my thinking, so I am stumped here. My bird app has not come up with an answer. Can you?

Immature Pied-Billed Grebe

I walked around the Kentville Miner's Marsh area a few weeks ago, on a dull day and managed to see quite a number of wildfowl, many of which were too far away to get decent photographs especially as the light was poor and it was windy. This youngster was swimming and diving not too far from the shore and I got several of him.  I thought at the time that when he went underwater it was almost as if he didn't so much dive as simply submerge out of sight. Almost as if he sank underwater.

He was a little hard for me to identify and even another (much better) bird photographer didn't have any idea what he might be, looking at my photographs. I was a little disheartened (feeling that my images had not done the bird justice) until I found it on my bird identification app and the images of it were no better than this one.

Today I found this information about the species, which is the second smallest grebe found in North America. http://ecobirder.blogspot.ca/2010/11/adventures-of-clown-duck.html

Late Afternoon Light, September, Annapolis Valley, NS

There are moments when the light is special in that 'Golden Hour' before sunset or after sunrise and it filters down between the clouds in a darkening, heavy sky. At times you see this light and you can't do anything about it. Perhaps you don't have your camera, or there is just no scenery to feature. Or maybe you are in heavy traffic and can't get out without creating a hazard.

On this day, I was coming home and saw these golden and darkening conditions developing in the distance. I drove past my favourite farm, but the light wasn't going to hit it. I kept driving and watching. As I came down towards Hillaton, I saw the clouds becoming heavier over the North Mountain and the mist settling on the hills beneath, all the time I was driving and watching for the scene that would be the one.

When I saw this, I pulled the car quickly around the corner onto the hard shoulder (light shifts rapidly in this situation, I didn't want to lose it) and, grabbing the camera I jumped out of the car, all the time clicking the shutter at the scene, just in case the light changed and I lost it.

Soon these trees will be turning wonderful colours of red and gold, but now the fields are gold with harvest, surrounded by the deep greens.

Working Horses for Farm Friday!

This pair of draught horses was in a field not far from where we live. The older one was quite protective of the younger so they both came over to see what I was up to. Not many people use horses for working the land any more, but they do a great job of pulling timber out of woods that are inaccessible to vehicles in winter. They are light on the land compared to tractors, non polluting, quiet, willing and companionable and can help produce their own food. It is too bad they are not a common sight except at farm fairs.

Remember that tomorrow is the day for one of our favourite themes, #farmfriday  - +Farm Friday curated by myself, +Steven Kennard , +Susanne Stelle  and +Alessia De Bonis (we are an international team, so we can view your farming images almost around the clock!).

Zippy-But not much use for Purposes of ID

The village has, with a lot of love and care, created a nature walk through woods that border our property. It has many little trails that twist and wind their way through the forest and along the edge of the fields. At one place, not too far from the school playground, there is an all weather fitness equipment area. (Take the 'all weather' bit with a pinch of salt, of course.) The purpose of this path is to encourage villagers to get outdoors and exercise themselves. There are projects for school children that are created around this path that include both exercise and learning experiences - today there were two groups of different ages, one using a GPS device, presumably to find their schoolmates we could just about hear in another part of the trail, the younger class children simply running along it.

From the outset this path was for those on non motorized forms of transport: feet, snowshoes, skis and even bicycles. Unfortunately there are no signs in place to indicate this restriction and the paths are being ruined by heavy fast two or four wheeled vehicles in winter and in summer. In the winter they form ruts that make it very difficult to walk along the trail. In the summer they can represent a hazard to walkers and their dogs. They also gradually are harming the roots of the trees that border the path. In time they will start to die back. The village has been unable to identify the infringers and have asked us to try to photograph them for identification. So here is one of them. :D

Signs and a few strategically placed bollards would do a better job, I think.

Joni at 9 Months Old

Joni has come a long way from the photograph of her that you see at the beginning of this album. Not only has she grown so that she looks almost adult, but she is (mostly) obedient enough to be able to walk with us off her leash, in the woods and on the beach at least. She doesn't exactly walk to heel (not at all, to be honest unless she is on the leash) but she runs and walks a little way ahead before pausing and turning to see if we are coming along behind her. She will wait if I tell her to and will even sit when I ask, even though I am not nearby. If she thinks she knows where we are going she will sometimes run too far ahead, so this is something we have to work on, but generally she is getting better and better all the time.

Here you see her at 9 months old, sitting up on the top of a bank in the woods. As part of the obedience exercises I practice with her, she will run up the bank and sit and wait until I tell her that she can come down and carry on along the path. The way I taught her to do that was by running up and down the bank myself until she caught on. I leave you to imagine that. She has been running through the damp fields and woods as you can see, but that is what a dog loves to do.

Just Because This Makes Me Smile

There is something about this image that made me smile at the moment I first saw the scene and then the photograph. It's hard to define, but it's undeniable and I would not want to deny something that brings happiness simply in being. 

I hope it brings some joy into your Friday and lingers over the weekend, too.

If you are able to watch this short video (around 25 minutes long and free viewing for a short time only) you will see organic farmers discussing their methods and thoughts for the future of their land. You will also hear the beautiful poetry of Tanya Davis.

Interesting thoughts from some extraordinary people on their beautiful green island.

Belted Galloway Cattle in Nova Scotia

This sleek and healthy looking herd of Belted Galloway cattle are on a farm which is only a few miles down the road from where we live. It is unusual to see these cattle, at least around here so I thought I would share this image, with the Farm Friday fans.

Farm Friday is a theme curated by myself, +Steven Kennard +Susanne Stelle and +Alessia De Bonis - the page is +Farm Friday and we always welcome farming related submissions to our theme. The catchphrase for #farmfriday  is "No Farms, No Food".

Because Everyone Needs a Little Peace and Tranquility

The coast of Nova Scotia is varied in its makeup, even along stretches of the same beach. You can be clambering over boulders, walking through mud with long bright green sea grasses underfoot or across pebbles and then suddenly come to an expanse of sand reminiscent of the most beautiful tropical beaches. The gentle lapping of the waves as the tide recedes has a calming effect on our minds that can get through to us and have a positive affect on the rest of our day in spite of the stressful lives we live.

This is Kingsport Beach in the Minas Basin, Nova Scotia, looking at the cliffs of Blomidon in the distance.

Fingers of Light

Why is it that when you have an actual appointment (with a time, rather than a vague 'see you tomorrow morning') you see a scene before you that is so unusual and beautiful that it forces you to stop? I hate being late, but with such moments, you just have to pull over and pick up the camera (I was so glad I had it with me). This was such a scene. I hadn't time to compose it carefully, nor to deliberate as to the best vantage point. I was on a road, traffic was passing us and this severely restricted me. I took 2 photographs and then had to get back into the car and carry on. The fingers of light were reaching down through the clouds towards the hills that were shrouded in mist. The Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia.

They made a lovely job of this slideshow about +Steven Kennard to accompany the articles about (and also one he wrote)  him in this latest issue of the magazine. I took some of the images in it, so I was really pleased with the use of them.

Thought I would share it here as it has just come out

Excellent post by +Alex Lapidus - thanks Alex.

Google, or at least +Brian Matiash is actively seeking suggestions on how they can improve our G+ experience.

Please put any of your own suggestions in comments on the original post.

#notforblog  

=
Feedback on Google Plus

+Brian Matiash has recently invited us to send him feedback on Google Plus, at matiash@google.com, and I'm happy to take him up on it!  I've pasted my note to him below; I'm certainly looking forward to your comments to me, but I also encourage everyone to take some time and send Brian your own thoughts about the platform.

+Sumit Sen +Robin Griggs Wood +Thomas Hawk You may have other avenues for providing feedback, but I know that all of you have been engaged for a long time with helping build this community; I'm hoping this is a productive time to rekindle the discussion.



My goal is simply to try to improve what Google Plus is, not to imagine something very different that it might become.  And I’m speaking for myself; this isn’t, at least for now, an attempt to canvas the whole community for ideas.  I do think most active photographers on G+ want pretty much what I want, but I’m really just trying to express what matters to me and why.  I’m also not trying to tell Google how to win more active users or improve engagement outside the photography community; I’m speaking as an active user myself, who hopefully creates original content that helps create activity within the platform.  In that way I am a facilitator, but I understand that I am not a customer, as I neither advertise nor view any advertising.  If your entire future is in cats, GIFs and phone selfies, I’ll go quietly.


A.  Identity
If I’m going to invest any time or effort in G+ as my online face to the world (or one of them), I have to be able to choose what I wish to present, to control what about me can be viewed.  It is absolutely miserable to be forced by some “feature” to actively misrepresent myself, by showing the wrong posts, photos or personal information.  When it comes to my profile, I’m able to pick and choose what to show and which tabs, and I can exclude Community posts – all good.  But my ability to choose and organize the photos I present is disastrous and has continually worsened.  I’ve chosen to be here as a photographer and nothing more or less, and I can’t show my photography in an acceptable way.

Request 1:  Present photos in albums.
1a.  When someone clicks on the Photos tab on my Profile, they should see the Albums view (https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/104294083885937159989/albums ).  I should be able to freely organize the order of my albums (including moving Photos from Posts and Profile Photos from the top slots).
1b.  When someone clicks on an album, they should see all the photos in that album.  I should be able to freely organize the order of photos within the album.  I should be able to select a vertical or portrait image as an album cover without it being cropped or distorted.
1c.  There should be no view showing only “Highlights,” either inside or outside an album.   If there were, I should be able to select which images are included, what order they are shown in, and if necessary, to control any other structure (i.e. if they’re grouped by album, then I should be able to set the order of albums for showing Highlights).
1d.  I have no interest in “Photos of You” and when you placed it at the top of my Profile tab, I untagged myself in every image, and blocked all tagging of me (I then tagged myself in a few favorite photos that aren’t of me).  If it needs to exist for some audience, make it an album whose position I can determine (i.e. I can bury it at the bottom of the Albums view, while someone else could choose to put it at the top).

Request 2: Fix Event Behavior.
2a. If I post to an Event, it should result in a single post on my Profile and in others’ streams.  Currently it produces three: a “normal” post, an Event post, and an orphan image.
2b.  I should have the option of showing Event posts on my profile or not, just as I have for Community posts.  By default, nobody should see my posts to an Event unless they have accepted an invitation to that Event.
2c. If I post a photo to an Event, I should be able to manage that photo in an existing album (or not, as I choose), rather than having a new album created.
2d.  If someone clicks on one of my photos from an Event, it should go to the lightbox and then to my album or Profile, not to Event images by other people or Event posts unrelated to me.  My photos should not be buried in an Event album or downloadable in bulk with other people’s images through an Event.
I’ll address Event invitations and notifications separately.

Request 3: Stop Post Duplication
In addition to Event posts, almost all photo posts in private Communities have produced duplicate photos in the Community stream for a long time now, and recently that behavior is leaking into the main stream and creating clutter.  I’m sure you’re familiar with the problem, but one is the original post and the other corresponds to activity from the lightbox view.

Request 4: Allow Me to Sell.
This is slightly farther afield than the other requests, but a print on demand fulfillment service like the basics of Fine Art America or SmugMug would allow both me and Google to generate some revenue, without forcing me to try to push people outside G+.


B.  Community
Since I can’t present my photography properly or sell it, I must be staying for the social interaction – for me, the best and most unexpected benefit of being on G+.  There are a number of steps Google should take to facilitate that social interaction and to avoid inhibiting it.

Request 5:  Who Added Me?
5a.  The notification when people add me should lead to a complete list of all of them (as it used to a long time ago).  What’s more basic than that?
5b.  The notification when people add me should be a single item rather than two.  Why do I get two different kinds now, the one in the main list and the one down below of “other notifications” (my settings have always said notify me of everyone).
5c.  Notification emails should likewise include everyone who has added me.  One email a day would be fine, or whatever algorithm you used to use to decide how to bundle people was okay.

Request 6:  Who Tried to Interact with Me?
6a.  Show everyone who has plused, reshared or commented on my post, not just the “most relevant” 50.  Again, seems pretty elementary.  I appreciate every one, and it’s an important way of discovering new people.
6b.  Show all such activity in chronological order, so I can find the activity I haven’t seen yet.
6c.  A little farther afield: show me summaries or allow me to download raw data to find out, for example, who has plused how many of my last n posts or other similar metrics, to allow me to create/discover my own list of “engagers.”
6d.  Add detail to notifications, to enable me to see all the people who plused a post, and which posts (the “so-and-so plused many of your posts” notification is unhelpful; I end up having to open all of those posts to see what they were looking at).

Request 7: Who Have I Tried to Interact with?
7a.  Fix the “plus one bug”!  I don’t care so much that I can’t see how many people have plused my own posts, but it really costs me time and nuisance in going through my Circle Streams to try to see other people’s work.  Since I can’t see my own pluses on other people’s posts, unless an image was very memorable, I often can’t tell if I’ve already seen it or not, or where I am in a stream’s timeline.  It’s also time consuming as a theme curator and Community moderator when I can’t quickly determine which posts I’ve already seen.
7b.  When I go to a Circle Stream, show me every post, in reverse chronological order, by members of that Circle.  I always thought that was how it’s supposed to work, and I’ve even had Google employees tell me so, but now there are many, many posts missing when I do that.  There has to be a way to see what people are posting without going to every single Profile.
7c.  Fix hashtag search.  Why can’t Google make that work again?  When I search a hashtag, I want to see all posts using that hashtag, in reverse chronological order.  If you must have the “best of” as an option, fine, but I’m usually searching as a theme curator, and I want that day’s or week’s posts.  Now I get a few recent ones and then random junk from months ago that may or may not even include the tag.  Many people’s theme contributions are missed because they trust in hashtags and don’t directly notify curators or a theme Page.

Request 8: Improve My Control over what I See.
8a.  Allow me to filter posts by content type.  I would choose to block all GIFs, autoawesome, Stories, YouTube clips, Circle shares, Event posts...  Of course other people could make other choices.
8b.  Fix Event notifications.  Why do I receive endless notifications for Events I’ve never even viewed, much less replied to in any way?  I should never receive anything from an Event unless I’ve accepted an invitation to it.
8c.  End the plus-one spam, where something appears in my stream only because someone in my circles has plused it.  The positive yield for those is horrendously low.
8d.  I’ll understand if Google has to do what it can with the main stream for its own purposes, but I’d like to have much more granular control over the probabilities that material from different circles or communities will show up there.  If not, I’ll end up further abandoning it for Circle Streams (especially if they stop losing posts).
8e.  If I search within G+ from the photo albums view, I want to search for posts (not for images).

Request 9: Improve the Playing Field.
I don’t have as precise a request here, and I don’t want to rehash many lengthy conversations that have already been held, but my concern here is the theft of copyrighted images by G+ profiles presenting them as their own work.  While I understand that Google cannot accept a role as censor, Google could certainly be as quick as other social networks to address DMCA takedown requests and to block accounts of repeat violators.  There may also be dials behind the scenes that you could readily turn to somewhat disfavor stolen content relative to original work – but of course that may conflict with your engagement and advertising numbers.  I just want to be clear that when popular sharers of stolen images are rewarded with attention, it has a corrupting effect on the community and creates one more disincentive to share original art.


C.  Google’s Role
I understand that Google itself chooses to stay mostly out of the stream of conversation; that you don’t want to offer information about features or changes before they’re released; and that I’m not your customer.  But I think you do need to show some respect for the fact that your most active users, who spend hours on the service and help generate lots of interaction, are designing their G+ presence in many respects to work with the system.  When the system changes abruptly, it causes dislocations that can cost people many hours as they modify their behavior or repair their tools.

Request 10: Publicly Document Major Feature Changes.  Create an official Google presence, however minimal, that at least informs people when significant changes are made, and answer basic questions about the changes.  This would at least help people stop wasting their time just to figure out and define what actually happened.

Request 11: Publicly Acknowledge Top Known Bugs.  Create an official Google presence, however minimal, that at least informs people when you’re willing to acknowledge an issue and whether or not you intend to address it.  When things go wrong, there’s a massive amount of preventable scurrying.  I just saw clear acknowledgement on a recent post that you’re aware of the “plus one bug” and working on it.  Whether that took months to come out or whether the response was scattered on individual posts rather than being in a place that everyone can find, it would be much more helpful if it came from a single account that people would know to check.

Thanks, now and always, for listening, and I hope we can set G+ on a better course again.___Excellent post by +Alex Lapidus - thanks Alex.

Google, or at least +Brian Matiash is actively seeking suggestions on how they can improve our G+ experience.

Please put any of your own suggestions in comments on the original post.

The Last Summer Holiday Weekend

It's a long weekend here and the weather is beginning to get much cooler at night. For many this weekend will mark the official end of their summer fun on the beach. I took this photo as I started out on my walk along the shore.  As I came back at the end of my walk, it had begun to pour with rain and as I got closer to where they had been playing, I saw these children all huddled under a huge beach umbrella. They didn't seem at all put out by the downpour, but were giggling and laughing under their shelter in their bright clothes making a splash of colour against the grey stones and sand. They had the sun in their hearts and that was all that mattered.

Enjoy your weekend, however you spend it.

Sounds worth the read. Thanks +Keith Cooper

I'm not normally a fan of free 'improve your photography' eBooks, but here's one where I was actually asked to contribute to, along with lots of other working photographers.

As ever, I'd expect more experienced photographers to say that it's obvious stuff, but the point is it wasn't always so, for all of us ;-)___Sounds worth the read. Thanks +Keith Cooper

My First Long Exposure - Atlantic Coast, Nova Scotia

On Monday we had a wonderful day out with G+ friends Alex and Linda who were visiting our Province. We took them to some of our favourite places on the Atlantic Coast and finally I was able to do a long exposure photograph. This is something that I've been wanting to do for over a year - since I was studying landscape photography in a mentorship by +Sairam Sundaresan. To get the effect I was after, I needed to go to a place where there are waves and movement of water. +Linda Villers will tell you that our waves are pathetic by the standards of those who live on the Pacific coast (and they're pretty measly in comparison to those on the coast of the North Sea, too, I have to admit). But they are the closest things to moving water that I could find. And so, with the help of +Steven Kennard and +Alex Lapidus (thanks a lot,both o... more »

And so, with the help of +Steven Kennard and +Alex Lapidus (thanks a lot, both of you) I got my tripod and camera set up, filter in place and finally achieved my goal. The cormorants on the rock were most obliging and obviously barely moved during the exposure.

So here is my first long exposure photograph. I hope to get others some day, but I might have to move closer to some 'real' waves to get them!

Happy Feet

There are reasons to believe that having bare feet on the ground (earth, sand grass etc.) without any man made substance to come between is an important way to become 'grounded' and to disperse the electrical energy that we are absorbing all day from the appliances and gadgets and wiring that surround us even when we don't see them. I know that after walking on the beach, with our bare feet getting sandy, muddy or wet from the salt water, we all feel refreshed and energized, even sleeping better. For that reason I tend to believe that this recommendation is worth following whenever we can.

Originally posted for #wordlessonwednesday , the image had no title, no caption and no text with it (to comply with the 'rules'). I have to say that I also liked some of the other comments which would have made an excellent title, such as "6 feet, not quite under' by +John Ashton.

These were, indeed, happy feet, feet belonging to friends on a walk on the beach which has some areas of lovely reddish sand. The fourth set of happy feet which are missing from the scene are the four belonging to Joni, our dog, as she was, no doubt, running along the shore with her ball in her mouth at the time this was taken.

Beach Home for Sale. Great View of the Bay

 (if at times a bit close for comfort)

The red cliffs along the bay of the Minas Basin, off the Bay of Fundy are constantly being whittled away by the relentless daily tides and the wind and weather. Many of the residents whose cottages are perilously close to the cliff edge have paid huge sums of money to have rocks and even giant boulders piled at the base of their properties in an attempt to slow the steady erosion of their land. 

The interesting results of this natural sculpturing are rock formations and caves that have been carved out as if by troglodyte builders, preparing dwellings for miniature people to inhabit. This particular one reminds us of a real sculpted giant shell which is in the town of Sarlat, near where we used to live.

I imagine every tourist who has visited that town has a picture of his children inside the walls of that shell. Do people take photographs of their children in this? Possibly they do, but I doubt that many venture very far along this beach to discover these tidal caves.
