HACK THIS PHOTO4,443PLEASE READ - NEW FUN TO BE HAD!!!!Hack This PhotoOur Photo.  Your Spin. (Open for the entire week)Welcome to a special edition of +HACK THIS PHOTO!  The photo editing game where you take our photo and twist it, turn it, crop it, chop it, texturize it, pixelize it, make it your own.  Then post it for all of G+ to see!Everyone is welcome to play – no formal training, expensive software or previous experience is required to join us.  Use an app on your phone, the G+ photo editor, GIMP, Lightroom, CS6 – it’s up to you.Tonight we're joining forces with the fantastic +Artistic Google folks to explore the land down under, Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef!!!So what is +Artistic Google, you ask? We'll let this snippet from their About page do the talking...This project started long, long ago in a faraway land when photographer Ken Rathke felt that his creativity needed a boost one rainy day. It began as a a fun experiment with creatively processed images of California and blossomed into a weekly foray to exciting destinations - all virtually of course on the Artistic Google Magic Bus!So where can we find travel pictures for screen capture and creative processing? Google Maps - Street View is perfect. It's Frugal National Geographic for those of us that like to dream. The challenge is to find the right angle, subject matter, cropping, composition and presentation.We wanted the images to have a certain raw quality that was already there, but hidden until brought out by the creative mind of the Artistic Googler.To Play:Tonight we're giving you two options of playing. You can either simply HACK the photo we're supplying by clicking on the link below:https://plus.google.com/photos/116361882895448900841/albums/5796967343539305697/5796967346267396802Note that the image supplied is based on the Google Street View and is copyright Google.

Laura B Williams864I just posted this circle to My Circles when I meant to post it publicly...ooops.This is a circle full of some of the most talented writers on Google+. I am sharing this with you because I like to share awesomeness. If you  are a writer and I do not have you in this circle please let me know in the comments and I will add you! 2014-07-12 13:09:58344302CC G+

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 June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 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 +2014-06-29 09:56:09189006CC G+

Mario Rotta15,308This is a circle in which I included a lot of excellent photographers: but most of them start from pictures to create visual design effects. So, this circle may represent a list of people working on the edge between photography and art. I like that experimental edge :-)2014-05-22 06:00:41400016CC G+
Mark Hanson3,303Visual Creatives CircleThis is my circle of those involved in visual creativity. It includes graphic designers, amateur and professional photographers, and those involved in art and website design.If you need a visual boost in your stream then do consider adding this circle!(Shared especially for my #graphicdesigner friend +Lena Lahab, though I'm sharing publicly as I think many may be interested.) #sharedcircles #photography #graphicdesign #webdesign  2014-05-08 10:41:31340305CC G+

Thomas Hawk6,146,1772500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 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.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  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 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/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OC*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.2013-09-03 18:49:364857231117CC G+

Stephanie Calahan842FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 2 of 4My goal was to crowdsource a list of Fabulous Woman on G+ that are Actively posting and Engaging on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and #Gratitude, I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1311 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmWhat 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+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* 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 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 each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+ #womenongplus #womenonline #womenongoogleplus #women #activeusers #activedirectory #activeengagers #fabfems #googleplusengagers #femalesongoogleplus #female 2013-05-09 17:30:57362381135CC G+

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 March 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 2nd.)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 #thebestcircle2013-03-27 10:45:49334204CC G+

"Gardener"

Just another day in Paradise at Leaside Community Gardens, a little hippie haven of vegetables, flowers and tchotchkes parked smack in the middle of the hydro corridor in this industrial wasteland. Pull up a plastic chair and watch the colourful birds at the many many feeders, while enjoying the techno-sound of dump trucks at the nuclear waste facility across the ravine.

A stone's throw from my office but light-years away.

The Joy of Books

Type Books on Queen Street West challenges the notion that bookstores are dead. A literary community hub. Imagine that. Added to my list of bookstores to visit this summer. Along with more time spent at my wonderful neighbourhood library. 

I am sorry to see our local Chapters store in the historic Runnymede Theatre building replaced by a drug mart selling $90 lipsticks for yummy mummies, but don't miss the lack of real literary choice at this big box bestseller pusher. I don't miss their greeters either. I guess that putting a real theatre - you know, with a stage and actors -  in that building wouldn't make economic sense though.

Enjoy Type Books' magical video. And dare to dream.

"Stray Dog, Heraklion" for +Artistic Google's tour of Greece, curated by +Rob Robinson +Jamal Masood +Patrick Sheeran and me.

As they were speaking, a dog that had been lying asleep raised his head and pricked up his ears. This was Argos, whom Odysseus had bred before setting out for Troy...In the old days he used to be taken out by the young men when they went hunting wild goats, or deer, or hares, but now that his master was gone he was lying neglected on the heaps of mule and cow dung that lay in front of the stable doors till the men should come and draw it away to manure the great close; and he was full of fleas.

As soon as he saw Odysseus standing there, he dropped his ears and wagged his tail, but he could not get close up to his master.

When Odysseus saw the dog on the other side of the yard, dashed a tear from his eyes without Eumaeus seeing it, andsa... more »

"Lookout" for +Artistic Google's tour of Greece, curated by +Rob Robinson +Jamal Masood +Patrick Sheeran and me.

Practically SOOC - Google Street View's camera, that is - on the causeway across the serene central lagoon, Limnothalassa Klisova near Missolonghi. The name came from the combination of two Italian words, "mezzo" and "laghi" which means "a place surrounded by lakes". Until 1700, Missolonghi was under Venetian domination. Its inhabitants were mostly fishermen. They lived in cabins which were made of a kind of waterproof straw and reed and stood on stilts above sea water.

Near the west Iceland fishing port of Ólafsvík and not far from the Snæfellsjökull (glacier) that was featured in Jules Verne's "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" in which the protagonists find the entrance to a passage leading to the center of the earth on Snæfellsjökull.

"Glasgow Dusk" for +Artistic Google 's  "Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Spirit" theme, curated by +Rob Robinson +Jamal Masood +Patrick Sheeran and me.

Nothing's left of the Gorbals neighbourhood in my old hometown; it's been torn down again and again, and exists only in faded postcards and memories. 

Memory is strongest at dusk, when the spirit hovers between day and night, light and dark, reality and dreams...even out here, driving along Hamilton Road in the space between what was then and what is now, full of remembrances, anticipation and questions.

Our senses cannot fathom this night, so
be the meaning of their strange encounter;
at their crossing, be the radiant centre.

And should the world itself forget your name
say this to the still earth: I flow.
Say this to the quick stream: I am.

The Google Doodle celebrates Rachel Carson's 107th birthday.

I remember reading "Silent Spring" aeons ago in first year biology, and then picking it up again several times later. Her centenary in 2007 was the subject of my very first blog post.

http://redstarcafe.wordpress.com/2007/06/07/rachel-carsons-centenary/

The book  is often credited with having launched the global environmental movement. Silent Spring had an immense effect in the United States, where it spurred a reversal in national pesticide policy.

Scientists such as American Cyanamid’s Robert White-Stevens (who wrote “If man were to follow the teachings of Miss Carson, we would return to the Dark Ages, and the insects and diseases and vermin would once again inherit the earth.”), chemical companies, and other critics attacked the data and interpretation in the book. Some wentfurther... more »

Blue pill:

Stopped they must be; on this all depends. Only a fully trained Jedi Knight, with the Force as his ally, will conquer Vader and his Emperor. If you end your training now - if you choose the quick and easy path as Vader did - you will become an agent of evil. (Yoda)

Red pill:

Leaside Community Gardens in the middle of the hydro corridor. One of the plots contains a piece of environmental art with large twigs constructed as a mashup of wigwams and those canopies you see in Little Italy gardens for growing grapes.

Sail,
bright boat,
winged banner,
in my verse,
stitch,
body of silver,
your emblem
across the shirt
of the icy firmament,
oh, aviator,
gentle
serenade of flight,
snow arrow, serene
ship in the transparent storm,
steady, you soar
while
the hoarse wind sweeps
the meadows of the sky.

Rosie the shiba inu wishes it would snow again and take away the grey ice that refuses to melt. 

And this, from Mary Oliver:

Now through the white orchard my little dog
romps, breaking new snow
with wild feet.
Running here, running there, excited, hardly able to stop, she leaps, she spins
until the white snow is written upon
in large, exuberant letters,
a long sentence, expressing 
the pleasures of the body in this world.
Oh, I couldn't have said it better
myself.

And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;

You have not dreamed of Wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air...
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark or even eagle flew --
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

One of my booky friends over on The Dark Side recommended Carlos Ruiz Zafón's masterpiece, "The Shadow of the Wind"? Another book to be savoured slowly because, although one would like to stay up all night to read it, knowing that there are still a few pages left at the end for the next day is the best part.

An Umberto Eco-ish intrigue set in Barcelona, a story within a story and, luckily, it appears to be part of a trilogy. 

Too many wonderful quotes to count, but this one, I thought, might draw in my friend, +Robin Cohen :

“Julian spoke with the clear, unequivocal lucidity of madmen who have escaped the hypocrisy of having to abide by a reality that makes no sense.”
