Peter From75,672The Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle | September 2014Time to share the SEPTEMBER Edition of the PAC. As usual, I have sifted through each and every feed and I can promise a very interesting circle. Wonderful people taking wonderful photos. Add the circle right away! :)I will announce the theme contest winners in my feed tomorrow.If you want to be a part of the next PAC, please follow the guidelines as stated below.This Is How To Do It (a.k.a. The Rules, a.k.a. The Guidelines)Now, remember that you HAVE to comply with ALL the rules or I will ignore your request. I want that to be as clear as crystal. I put a lot of time and effort into this lil' project and I want to keep things as efficient as possible. Please help me by complying with the rules.1. PLUS & RESHARE this post. You help yourself and your fellow photographers by spreading the word.2. ADD the  CIRCLE to your circles. 3. Please ADD A FEW WORDS about the field of photography that you are into when you ask for inclusion. That will help me immensely when I compile the next circle.4. Please TAG a few fellow photographers that you think should have the opportunity to be in the circle as well. Please limit your choice of photographers to a maximum of five persons.5. Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is neither the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Thanks. I will check your feed anyway, be sure of that. :) Not complying with this rule results in your comment being deleted. Multiple offenders will be blocked.6. Premium & Lifetime Members of the Pixativity Photographer's Directory website are automatically included in the circle. Feel free to reshare this post though. (How to obtain a Premium or Lifetime account to the PPD can be found here: http://maps.pixativity.com/join/).7. Please do NOT use the comments to thank people who tagged you. Do that in their feed or your own feed. I need all the comment space that there is for requests. This Month's ThemeWill be announced in the next Announcement Post.The RestIf I do NOT add you to the circle there's always a reason for that.1) You do not mainly share your own original work in your feed.2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc.3) I did not like the mix of your feed (yeah, I know, it's a very subjective thing to create circles like this).4) I just missed your comment of some reason – mistakes happen, I am only human.Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured that I check ALL feeds and you are always welcome to ask for inclusion in the next edition of the PAC.How do I know if you added me to the circle?You don't. You will find out once the circle is being released. Asking me in the comments will render no answer. :)Release DateThe next circle will be released end of October. Now, let's make this month's NEW PAC another success story. :) Get on with the resharing.Cheers!2014-10-08 09:13:23411141318
Gailen Mapes68,403Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera B - 2 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 September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 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 #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 +2014-10-02 10:23:56136000

Piotr Tymiński7,625My very own circle of PHOTOGRAPHERS v.2A word of thanks to all of you who are a constant source of inspiration for me and a botomless well of beautiful work which is a joy to look at Real people here who post their own work. Amateurs and professionals. And no, I don't care about the number of followers they may have. It's all about the quality and, of course, quality is a very subjective matter so don't get upset with my choice:) I'm sure it can be a great source of inspiration for everybody. Many of the people in the circles have me in their circles and some do not, but take it easy, you don't need to circle me back - it's all about enjoying some great photography. And some of them (what a horror!) do not even call themselves photographers but somehow happily produce content which beats many so called "pro" guys.This circle is obviously under permanent development as new photographers are added when I come around some work I really enjoy. If you are into photography and I've circled you it means you will sooner or later be in this circle. I am simply putting some sense into my contacts - bringing order from chaos, you see... If you are into urbex and derelict climate please look for another circle of mine which is specifically dedicated to such kind of photography.Sharing is alway appreciated. #photographycircles #photographers  #photography #sharedcircles  #topcircles #circleshare #publicsharedcircle2014-05-30 19:07:18415262020

Marco Favero720Great 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.  Some 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 but please only one.  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!#sharedcircles #addcircle #sharedpubliccircles #circleshare #publicsharedcircles #circlesharing #publiccircle #findcircles #circlemeup #influencers #influencer #influence #influencermarketing #sharedcircle #circles #circlethis #circleyoushare #circle #socialmediamar2014-02-11 00:07:58479312

Gailen Mapes59,040Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera B  - 2 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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 Mapes2014-02-02 11:50:53145605

Hung cuavan607Get in More CirclesWhen You reshare with a circle, you should also explain the benefits of participating in shared circles. Explain the BenefitsExplain that when they add the circle many people in the circle will add them back. Also,Explain that if they re-share your post that the circle creator may add them to their future shared circles. If you do these two simple things you will increase your re-share rate.

GO CHARGERS
San Diego, CA

The Charger game starts in a little over an hour.  To be honest, I didn't think they had a chance at making the playoffs, let alone win a game and be in the position they are now.  My Chargers fan friend didn't appreciate my lack of faith in the team, so we made a bet, and if the Chargers win today, I have to wear a bolo tie for a week.

If you're not a Chargers fan the reason I have to wear a bolo tie is because Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has been wearing them before and after games during the teams recent (somewhat improbable) winning streak. I've actually seen articles saying there are bolo tie shortages in San Diego, fans have been buying them in support of Rivers. Bolo ties are not a fashion accessory typically seen on the streets of San Diego, but if the Chargers keep winning, that might change.

So in thee... more »

Standing Water
La Jolla, CA

Low tide leaves behind these rocks covered in green moss, and little pools of standing water. I remember as a kid taking a field trip to the tide pools to learn about the marine life that stays behind as the tide goes out. I haven't taken the time to explore all the pools around La Jolla, but I remember there being a lot of star fish and sea anemone.

When Lightning Strikes
Las Vegas, NV

We had an electric weekend in Vegas. It was my bachelor party, so not much time for photography, but I managed to get this before heading out for dinner.

Trump Tower
Chicago, IL

I took this from a bridge over the Chicago River. Every time a car would drive over the bridge it would shake the whole bridge, including the camera. I had to try and time the start of the bracket with the red light at the end of the bridge, then hope cars didn't come around the corner from the other direction. I think I ended up getting 2 clear shots out of 15 or 20 tries.

Jay Pritzker Pavilion
Chicago, IL

Chicago was a really fun city. They have so much going on between college and pro sports, theater and museums, and an incredible skyline too. I really enjoyed wandering around Millennium Park and the Jay Pritzker Pavilion.

The Flatiron
New York, NY

Going on a trip and taking several thousand new photos is a good way to get back into photography and posting photos. I spent 4 days in Chicago and 3 in New York last week which included a trip to the top of the Empire State Building. 

We never seemed to have a minute of free time and it was our last night in New York. I was thinking I was going to have to skip going up the Empire State Building, but on the way back from the Yankee game, I looked up the operating hours for the observation deck and discovered they are open until 2am. We got there around 11:30pm, bought our ticket, and walked right onto the elevator. If avoiding lines is important to you, I would definitely recommend a late night trip to the Empire State Building.

The New York Hustle
New York City, NY

I'm excited to be going back to New York in a couple weeks, in anticipation I pulled out an old photo and gave it a quick edit.

Based on my experience last time I was in New York, I think I want something wider than 17mm. Does anyone have experience with one of the cheaper ultra wides for Canon full frame? For now I'm looking at the Rokinon or the Samyang 14mm. I would love to get the Canon 14mm, but I don't think I can swing the price right now.

San Diego Administration
San Diego, CA

The new park and landscaping has turned the Administration building into a pretty popular place, and it looks a lot nicer too. I'm also a fan of the tribute to Tony Gwynn hanging out front.

Pier Cafe in Mono
San Diego, CA

The Pier Cafe in Seaport Village is one of the coolest places in San Diego to photograph.

Only 1 more day to go, this is Day 4 of my #fivedayquest  challenge from +Danny Levin.

Today I would like to invite +DeShaun Craddock, a New York photographer I met at an art show in San Diego last year. He has quite a few really interesting unique and original compositions of both recognizable and unknown subjects, and I always find his work to be inspiring. I hope he will be able to join me in the #fivedayquest . 

There are 3 simple rules to follow:
1) post 5 shots on 5 days
2) use the tag #fivedayquest  
3) tag a circlefriend to join in, mentioning the original person who tagged you too.

* La Jolla Ocean Geyser*
San Diego, CA

The tide was really high during sunset last night, and the surf was a little bigger than usual. The result was this "geyser" that would shoot up from between the rocks every time a wave made it to the shore.

This is Day 3 of my #fivedayquest  challenge from +Danny Levin.

My invite for today might be a long shot, but I would like to invite +Douglas Isaacson, another one of my favorite photographers, he is from New York City. He posted his first photo today after a few months away from G+, so here's hoping it's the start of something good. I know as well as anybody that sometimes life gets in the way of photography, and especially photography sharing. Nonetheless, I hope he will be able to join me in the #fivedayquest , or even some modified version of it that results in more photo sharing.

NOT MY PHOTO

I've been following +William McIntosh on Flickr for the past few years. This week I'm happy to see he has made the move over to G+. He is one of my absolute favorite photographers, and shoots a lot of my favorite subjects, California landscapes and cityscapes with some Disneyland mixed in too. Take a minute and check out his work, and add him to your circles.

This is a seven minute exposure of the San Diego skyline yesterday during sunset. I was thinking about going black and white again, but for this photo, the color was an important part of the story.

No Lifeguard
San Diego, CA

This is a lifeguard tower at Torrey Pines State beach.  I was surprised to see kids out playing in the ocean despite the overcast skies, temperatures in the 60s and water temperature in the 50s, brrrrrr.

I'm still playing with black and white, and can't quite decide if I like it or want to go back to color. Either way, I am having fun with long exposures. I've found I could definitely use a 3-stop ND filter. I currently have a 6-stop and a 10-stop, and I've run into a few situation where the exposure time I wanted called for almost exactly 13-stops of ND filters.

Seaport Village Streaks
San Diego, CA

I'm curious what it takes to create many different styles or looks in photography. Sometimes that curiosity leads me to actually try new things. 

I think it's been over a year that I've been admiring the visuals of long exposure photography. For Christmas I got a 10-stop ND filter, but it took me until this past week to finally get out and give it a try. 

Long exposures take a lot more setup than other forms of photography. It's important to make sure the composition is right, the focus is set, light leaks are covered, and the exposure time is calculated and correct. If I were going back in time, I probably would have spent the extra money for square or rectangular ND filters, as opposed to the screw on B+W filters I have.

If I were going back in time, I probably would have spent the extra money for square or rectangular ND filters, as opposed to the screw on B+W filters I have. Filters that can be easily removed, especially without significant risk to bumping the zoom or focus ring on the lens would make the process much easier. For this image I used a 10-stop and a 6-stop ND filter to get a 5 minute 30 second exposure. It is a single exposure, and no HDR, which is pretty rare for me.

Scripps Pier Black and White
La Jolla, CA

I'm really getting the bug for black and white. This is my second attempt, and I tried to do a lot more processing on this one, which resulted in some things I like, and a few things that bother me. I bought +Joel Tjintjelaar's new black and white book, but I haven't had time to dig into it yet. Hopefully it will help me learn some new concepts and processing tricks.

Children's Pool
La Jolla, CA

This is still a bit of an experiment, but I've started playing with black and white. This is the first time I've processed a black and white photo with Photoshop. It's about as far away from my typical colorful HDRs as I could possibly get, but as I've progressed in photography I've become more interested in black and white. It really forces you to break down the image and focus on composition and tonality. 

I was also able to finally get some use out of the ND filters  I've been carrying in my bag for months. I think I've only used them 2 or 3 other times, and never ended up posting any of the shots. In B&W the long exposure helps to further isolate the subject from the water and sky.

Downtown Waterfront Park
San Diego, CA

Last night I had a few minutes to check out the new Downtown San Diego Waterfront Park, and I have to say, it's pretty cool. I only had time to explore the north side of the park, and I think the south side will be even better, but there are fountains, pools, reflections, pathways and leading lines everywhere. It's almost like a photography park, I'm looking forward to going back again when I have a little more time.

Fire Fueled Sunset
San Diego, CA

I took this last week while the fires in San Diego were still burning. A lot of the smoke from the fires blew out to the ocean, adding some color for the sunset. Thankfully the dry, hot weather only lasted a couple days and firefighters were able to get all the fires under control. I'm fearful of what we could be in for the rest of the summer considering how dry the winter was in Southern California.

Scripps Pier is a surprisingly popular spot for photographers from amateur to seasoned professional. Last time I was in Las Vegas I went to Las Vegas I got to see both Peter Lik and Jeff Mitchum's gallery, and both had photos of Scripps Pier.

Fire Fueled Sunset
San Diego, CA

I took this last week while the fires in San Diego were still burning. A lot of the smoke from the fires blew out to the ocean, adding some color for the sunset. Thankfully the dry, hot weather only lasted a couple days and firefighters were able to get all the fires under control. I'm fearful of what we could be in for the rest of the summer considering how dry the winter was in Southern California.

Scripps Pier is a surprisingly popular spot for photographers from amateur to seasoned professional. Last time I was in Las Vegas I went to Las Vegas I got to see both Peter Lik and Jeff Mitchum's gallery, and both had photos of Scripps Pier. I think there are a couple factors that contribute to it's photographic popularity. First, it's a relatively small pier, so it doesn't take up too much space in photos, you can see through it to the surf breaking on the beach, and more importantly, the sunset colors. The other factor benefiting Scripps Pier over some of the other San Diego piers, is it's extension to the west. The California coast does not just run north to south, there are many places that are south facing, and even a few north or north west facing areas. The photographic benefit of facing to the west means the sun sets within the frame (and twice a year the sun sets centered between the pillars of the pier) which places the light and more importantly the color, in a good compositional position within the frame.

Full Moon over the Marina
San Diego, CA

I went out and shot the full moon from Shelter Island on Wednesday, and I ended up way off on my guess of where the moon would actually rise. I was hoping to get the moon rising over the hills directly behind the downtown cityscape. Instead I got the moon rising over the hangars at NAS North Island.

I still really wanted to get a cityscape moonrise shot, so I decided to do a little research. I did a few google searches, and ultimately decided to buy the iOS app +The Photographer's Ephemeris. The app lets you drop a pin on a map, and then it shows you the time and direction of the moonrise, moonset, sunrise and sunset for any day you choose. It also gives a bunch more information about the moon and sun, but in this case, all I was concerned with was the time and direction of the moonrise.

It also gives a bunch more information about the moon and sun, but in this case, all I was concerned with was the time and direction of the moonrise. The app was a bit on the pricey side, but it gave me exactly the information I was looking for.

Having shot from the end of Harbor Island closest to the city several times in the past year, I knew it offered great views of the city, and equipped with my new app I knew the moon would be rising right over The Grande condos, two of the tallest buildings in the middle of the skyline.

The trouble started when I arrived at the parking lot for Island Prime and found the whole end of the parking lot fenced off for construction. The area has been in a bit of construction limbo ever since they removed the paddle boat that was docked there a year or two ago. Previously however, there was still easy access to a walkway that lead down to the water, and had great views of the city, unfortunately that was no longer the case. The fence would not be too difficult to get around, but I'm not a big fan of passing no trespassing signs. Ultimately I decided to head back up Harbor Island and look for a parking spot on the side of Harbor Island Dr.

At this point, the moonrise was only a few minutes away, and as I drove I couldn't find a place to park. By the time I found a parking spot I was on the west half of the island, and had shifted my perspective enough that according to my app, the moon would be rising well to the right of the cityscape I had hoped to capture. With only a few minutes left, I decided to setup in this spot and I was able to get some shots from here. It's still not the image I've been hoping for, but it's a step closer compared to the one I got Wednesday night.

When it comes to shooting the moonrise over San Diego, I actually prefer the night after the full moon. The moon is still big, and it comes up about an hour after sunset instead of just a few minutes later. That gives the city lights a little extra time to turn on and appear brighter against the darker night sky. With this app I feel like it's just a matter of time now, I won't be guessing where I should go to get the sun or moon position I want. Like I said before, it's a bit pricey, but I think I'll get a lot of use from the app, and I'll also learn a few things about the Earth, the moon and the sun.

North Island Hangars
San Diego, CA

I had to be in Point Loma around 9:00 last night so I decided to stop by Shelter Island and see if I could get a few shots of the full moon. I was hoping it would come up closer to the city, but I didn't do any advanced planning, so I settled for this shot of the hangars at North Island.

Broadway and 4th
San Diego, CA

This part of Downtown San Diego feels more like a real downtown because the buildings are older, taller, and closer together. With the recent 10 year anniversary celebration at Petco Park there have been a lot of photos comparing downtown before and after the stadium was built. It's incredible how many high rises have gone up in the past 10 years.

Manzanar Cemetery

This monument sits in the cemetery at the Manzanar Internment Camp in the Owens Valley in California. During the time the camp was in use 146 incarcerees died, but only 15 were buried there, and now only 5 graves remain because most were reburied elsewhere by their families. The monument was constructed by an incarceree of the camp, and the symbols on the front translate to "Soul Consoling Tower" (souce: wikipedia)

Balloon Pop Race
San Diego, CA

The fair is coming soon to San Diego. If you were thinking about submitting prints to the photo exhibit the deadline is tomorrow. I've never submitted anything before, but I have been considering submitting one or two images, just to see how it goes. I've always been against paying an  entry fee or giving up copyright for photo contests, but I've always enjoyed viewing the exhibit at the fair, and thought it would be cool to have one of my images in the show.

MLB Opening Day
San Diego, CA

Baseball's opening day is finally here.  They had a couple games in Australia last week, but I don't count those, tonight is the real deal. We get to see the Padres and Dodgers face off in San Diego, then tomorrow the rest of baseball gets started. 

I'm an Angels fan first, but living in San Diego now, I try to catch as many Padres games as I can.  I took this photo on the Padres opening day 2 years ago.

Ocean Beach Fishing Pier
San Diego, CA

The OB pier was completed in 1966, and was originally built for local fishermen. The shore has shallow water and is covered in kelp which makes fishing difficult. The ocean is 25-30 feet deep at the end of the pier giving fishermen the opportunity to catch many more species of fish.

Seaport Village
San Diego, CA

Seaport Village has all kinds of shops, dining and entertainment, and now just across the street at the Embassy Suites there is a Dunkin Donuts. I heard the line was over an hour long when they opened on Monday.

Dunkin Donuts is a traditionally Easy Coast brand with somewhat of a cult following kind of similar to In N Out on the west coast. I wonder how long the wait would be if an In N Out opened somewhere on the East Coast, my guess is it would be chaos.

Occasionally I get the urge to dig into my photo archives, and there's no doubt I most often gravitate to my photos from New York.  I was last there a year and a half ago, but I wish I could go back. It is a really fun city, with so much to see, and so much to do. It doesn't compare to anything we have on the west coast.

Daylight Savings time starts this weekend, and as much as I hate losing an hour of sleep, I'm looking forward to catching a lot more sunsets. I usually work until around 6 or 7, so as the days get longer, and the time jumps ahead, I should be able to make it out for a lot more sunset shooting.

First Snow of the Season
Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains

"It was the first snow of the season, I can almost see you breathin"

It took until March, but the Sierras finally got a real winter storm this weekend. 3-4 feet of wet snow fell on Mammoth Mountain, which made for the best skiing so far this season. Before heading home I had to stop by Convict Lake and grab a few photos of the fresh snow. This is quickly becoming my favorite spot in the Eastern Sierra.

Low tide leaves behind these rocks covered in green moss, and little pools of standing water. I remember as a kid taking a field trip to the tide pools to learn about the marine life that stays behind as the tide goes out. I haven't taken the time to explore all the pools around La Jolla, but I remember there being a lot of star fish and sea anemone.

Super Bowl Sunset
San Diego, CA

I took this on Super Bowl Sunday.  I was watching the game, but it quickly got out of hand, and the clouds looked more interesting than usual, so I decided to go for walk.

This area by the bay, along with Balboa Park, are my favorite places in San Diego to go for a walk. The best part is the weather looks more or less like this everyday during the winter. I sometimes get irritated with temperatures in the high 70s for too many days in a row, I like to be able to wear pants and jackets on occasion, but compared to the winter most of the country has had this year, I guess I really can't complain too much.

Elephant Seal Sunbathing

I had quite a few pre-planned stops along Highway 1, but this one was spontaneous, and turned out to be pretty interesting. I wish there was more in this photo to provide scale for the size of these seals, they were absolutely huge.  I'm used to Harbor Seals, but the elephant seals are much larger. If you're driving down highway 1, it's worth a stop.

Slippery Rocks
La Jolla, CA

I didn't make it down to La Jolla until just after the sun dipped below the horizon.  It was later than I had hoped, so I was rushing around trying to get my camera and tripod setup and move around to get as many compositions as possible. I guess I was moving a little too fast for these slippery moss covered rocks, because right before I took this I slipped and sat down in one of those puddles on top of the rock. Luckily I was careful enough that my camera was fine, and I didn't get hurt, just wet. If you find yourself out at low tide, be careful, the rocks are very slippery.

It turned out the Sofia Hotel was very easy to find on G+, and when I got to their G+ page I scrolled through a few posts and found my photo of the San Diego Marina was used 4 times (link to photo used: http://goo.gl/DtVlFZ), all without any credit given.  Three of the posts containing my photo were advertising a photo contest where the winner would get a free 2-night stay in one of their suites.

It turned out the Sofia Hotel was very easy to find on G+, and when I got to their G+ page I scrolled through a few posts and found my photo of the San Diego Marina was used 4 times (link to photo used: http://goo.gl/DtVlFZ), all without any credit given.  Three of the posts containing my photo were advertising a photo contest where the winner would get a free 2-night stay in one of their suites. Since my photo was used in the advertisement, I wonder if that makes me the winner?  Unfortunately, they never bothered to contact me, not to ask permission to use my photo, and not to tell me I won the contest I never entered (but still helped to promote). 

So despite the cool architecture, I guess it's fair to say I now have mixed feelings about +The Sofia Hotel

Mountainside Stream
June Lake, CA

I was planning to drive around the June Lake Loop, then head back to Mammoth, but about 2/3 of the way around the road was closed.  There is one part of the road that's susceptible to avalanche and rock slides so I think they just close it for the season.

Since the road was closed and there were some cars parked near the gate I decided to get out and walk around a little. In doing so, I came across this calm and quiet stream.  I was amazed by how still it was, especially since I know the Mammoth area, and especially Mammoth Mountain to be extremely windy. It ended up being a great walk around an area I never would have found if it weren't for the road closure.

GO CHARGERS
San Diego, CA

The Charger game starts in a little over an hour.  To be honest, I didn't think they had a chance at making the playoffs, let alone win a game and be in the position they are now.  My Chargers fan friend didn't appreciate my lack of faith in the team, so we made a bet, and if the Chargers win today, I have to wear a bolo tie for a week.

If you're not a Chargers fan the reason I have to wear a bolo tie is because Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has been wearing them before and after games during the teams recent (somewhat improbable) winning streak. I've actually seen articles saying there are bolo tie shortages in San Diego, fans have been buying them in support of Rivers. Bolo ties are not a fashion accessory typically seen on the streets of San Diego, but if the Chargers keep winning, that might change.

So in the end I'll be happy that the Chargers win, or I'll be happy that I don't have to wear a Bolo tie.

Sunset Obstruction
La Jolla, CA

I went down to La Jolla hoping for a great sunset, but instead I got a bunch of clouds.  It still makes for an interesting photo, I'll take clouds like this over a hazy cloudless sky any day.

Convention Center Lookout
San Diego, CA

Since the Chargers won their playoff game today it seems appropriate to share a photo from San Diego.  I took this from the top of the steps at the convention center looking back toward the Gaslamp and downtown San Diego.

June Lake Sunset
June Lake, CA

After Christmas I spent a few days with my family up in Mammoth.  The skiing wasn't very good, so one afternoon I drove over to June Lake to watch the sunset. My mom showed me this great spot which was a little bit hidden from the road but it has a great view of the lake, the town and the ski mountain.
