Mykal Hall405,260+Jay Patel and +Varina Patel are here in Australia for a workshop in Port Stephens hosted by +Brent Mail on the 3-5 Jan 2014. I have twisted their arms to do a photowalk here in +Sydney on the 11 January 2014.  So lets show our guest the welcome the Sydney Photo Community has to offer. We will meet on the steps in front of the Sydney Opera House at 6.30pm and slowly make our way to Hickson Rd Reserve for sunset and then to the end point at Observatory Hill by 9pm. I have plotted a few photo opportunity locations along the route as well as public toilets that I know of.https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=zw_eAURDDMag.kLJfMBZmQ50o There are plenty of food outlets to grab a quick bite to eat at Circular Quay for the journey. I have walked the route in 1hr 40mins at a leisurely pace but you may want to stay at one location longer if you desire. That will be fine as long as we all get together at the start to greet Jay and Varina and then at the end point to say our goodbyes. Then afterwards if you still feel in the mood to chat over a drink we will be heading to The Hero of Waterloo (if there is only a small group) or the Harbour View Hotel (if there are more than the Hero can fit).I recommend catching public transport to Circular Quay or Town Hall but if you drive in there are a few parking stations within a short walk to the Opera House. I suggest downloading the "Cheap Parking App" from the Google playstore or iTunes. This will give you pricing options from closest or cheapest and links to get to them.I hope everyone has a great time during the walk socialising and remember you can approach Jay, Varina and myself at anytime to ask any questions.Please share this with anyone you may know who would want to join us. :))) Looking forward to see you all and don't forget the hash tag #PatelSydneyPhotowalk+Jay and Varina Patel Sydney Photowalk2014-01-11 18:30:00139 
Ben Fewtrell3,016Ben Fewtrell from www.on3legs.com  and Rob from Photography Hot Spots www.photographyhotspots.com.au are hosting the 2nd anniversary G+ PhotoWALK in Sydney... We have broken this walk into two parts, the first part is an early start for those that like to get up early to shoot sunrise, we will be meeting outside of Luna Park next to the Milsons Point Ferry wharf at 6am and making our way around to Jeffrey Street Wharf at Kirribilli where will meet those of you that want to sleep in! At 8:30am the walk will continue back to the starting point of Luna Park where it will conclude. Everyone of all skill levels is welcome… as usual with my PhotoWALKS it does not matter what type of camera you have, even your smart phone will do the trick! #G+2yearanniversary SYDNEY G+ 2 year anniversary Worldwide PhotoWALK2013-06-28 22:00:0047 
Stephen Godfrey69,726Time: 3pm Location: Newtown Train Station (near the street) I will be there no matter the weather conditions. Even if it is raining there will still be plenty of cover around Newtown to shoot while not getting too wet. Sorry for not updating this before now, been a very busy week. Shoot me a message if you have any questions. ---------------------- It has been about a year since the last time I ran a photowalk so I guess it is time to do so again. Once again we will be heading to Newtown with the intention of doing some street photography. Never fear if you are not into street shooting there are plenty of other things around Newtown to keep you occupied, from the Historic Newtown cemetery to lane ways full of graffiti.  If you are new or never tried Street Photography never fear I will help you get started with a small introductory workshop on how to get started. Oh and the reason I run a photo walk at this time of year it coincides to my birthday so why not do something you love doing around your birthday. More details about the start and finish location to follow. PS I cannot promise another rainbow.Newtown Street Photography Photowalk2013-05-25 15:00:0028

Gailen Mapes70,137Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera N-Q - 28 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 October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 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             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-10-28 10:24:37147000

Matt Evans3,114The Richie Benaud CircleThought I'd get in on some circle sharing action for a change. In this circle you will find everyone who has left a comment on one of my photos over the past 3 months. It's easy to click + 1 and keep scrolling but it takes a little more effort to punch those keys as well. So big thanks to all these guys for their time and perhaps if you are after some positive comments on your photos, you should add them too. #circleshare   #circles   #circleoftheday   #circleoflegends  P.S. For all you internationals out there thinking "who the heck is Richie Benaud" , just remember, we are on a social platform run by Google ;)2014-10-13 02:34:24157002

Gerard Blacklock23,700Gerry's Australian Photographers Circle Version 3Hey Aussie togs, this is a pretty big update to this circle from the last one, this time I have been more selective in the fact that inactive glus members get booted, the circle was over 600 and as such I needed to comply with 'the less than 500 requirement' hence culling was needed.Note, this is the only circle I share since I really have a interest in local content.Feel free to reshare as you see fit, the main purpose is to facilitate more engagement between local aussie togs.Please feel free to comment and let me know if you know anyone (or if you are indeed one) who is a quality, active and interesting Australian based photographer.Two great communities/themes to get involved with if you like Australia content is #photomaniaustralia +Photo Mania Australia and Australian Landscape Photography https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/1060822645285719679572014-08-13 02:56:2844714219

Must Hang On!

Was on a long drive today. So along the way I've stopped a few times to take photos of the surroundings. At one point I came upon this Scorpion fly or Hanging fly (Harpobittacus australis), struggling to hold onto the grass. Taken this with my 18-135mm, as left the macro back in the car.

Casting Its Net

Came upon this Net-Casting Spider yesterday. It was sitting in a pot plant outside the apartment front door, that I was staying at in Shoal Bay, NSW. For a moment I thought it was grass tangled in a web. Till I saw the net between its front feet.

Lens Used: Pentax 100mm Macro WR F2.8

Hi, I thought I share +Randy Hume wonderful photo, and I encourage you to go and comment & plus his work. For he also victim of those who steal his work so they can get the credits.
  
For I came upon this photo via Google What's Hot, see following link:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+GauravChauhanSEO/posts/VG9i5msnqDE

I felt it was odd, as Chaurav Chauhan's profile does not show much. Plus the fact he is located in Asia. So I did a search and found original photo by Randy.

Anna's Hummingbird   
https://crated.com/art/67422/anna-s-hummingbird-by-randyhume 
http://www.redbubble.com/people/randyhume/works/12273765-annas-hummingbird  
----------------------------------------   
Hummingbirds are small, colorful birds with iridescent feathers. Their name comes from the fact that they flap their wings so fast (about 80 times per second) that they make a humming noise. Hummingbirds can fly right, left, up, down, backwards, and even upside down. They are also able to hover by flapping their wings in a figure-8 pattern. They have a specialized long and tapered bill that is used to obtain nectar from the center of long, tubular flowers. The hummingbird’s feet are used for perching only, and are not used for hopping or walking.

Diet 
Hummingbirds primarily eat flower nectar, tree sap, insects and pollen.

The hummingbird’s fast breathing rate, fast heartbeat and high body temperature require that they eat often. They also require an enormous amount of food each day. Hummingbirds have a long tongue which they use to lick their food at a rate of up to 13 licks per second.

Population 
It is difficult to estimate population numbers since there are many different species spanning a large geographic area.

Range 
Hummingbirds are found only in the Western Hemisphere, from southeastern Alaska to southern Chile, although most live in the tropics. There are 320 species of hummingbirds, 12 of which summer in North America and winter in tropical areas.

Behavior 
Like other birds, hummingbirds communicate via visual displays. Hummingbirds are very territorial and have been observed chasing each other and even larger birds such as hawks away from their territories.

--------------___Hi, I thought I share +Randy Hume wonderful photo, and I encourage you to go and comment & plus his work. For he also victim of those who steal his work so they can get the credits.
  
For I came upon this photo via Google What's Hot, see following link:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+GauravChauhanSEO/posts/VG9i5msnqDE

I felt it was odd, as Chaurav Chauhan's profile does not show much. Plus the fact he is located in Asia. So I did a search and found original photo by Randy.

I Thought It Was Winter!

Came upon large group of Butterflies sunning themselves. Quite surprising considering the recent cold burst of winter we had last couple of days. 

Lens used: Pentax FA 100mm F2.8 WR

Organised Chaos

Here in Alexandria, Egypt, you see the local yellow and black Taxis. Usually old Ladas imported from Europe. I was surprise that I didn't even seen a accident while I was there. Plus doing the  chicken run across 3 lanes of fast moving traffic has to be seen to be believe,

Hi There

Guess I back in action with my macros. Last night my moulting Mantis. Now a little wasp (approx 1.5 cm long) that didn't mind me getting close.

This was part of a attempted panorama, but I like what I saw here at the entrance. Was taken at the Temple of  Queen Hatschepsut.

You cannot get away from us

In Egypt at many tourist sites, you will ran into vendors trying to make a sale. They basically descend upon you like seagulls. Just when you think you were safe from them on a Cruise in the middle of the Nile River. They show up and start to make a racket.
The practice here is to get your attention and they throw their wares up. If you do not like it, just throw it back and they send another one up. 
Once you found a item you like, prepare to haggle.
