Dubie Bacino135,930Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino  (18th Edition)This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is inspiring content that will enhance your Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------When it comes to #CircleSharing, my practice is to share only two of my circles every month:  - ENGAGERS: this is a way of saying thank you to those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content. If you want me to notice you, be active in one or all of my communities (see below).-----------------------------------------To connect with me, the best place is my appearoo page: http://appearoo.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/ -----------------------------------------If you are on #TSU, connect with me: https://www.tsu.co/opajdara.

Gailen Mapes85,294Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera T-Z - 9 of 27Note: 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 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.2015-04-10 10:37:27182001

Well I'm older now and still runnin
Against the wind'

I photographed this tree at least a decade ago and when I saw it again recently it seemed to be smaller if anything. The wind is really strong near the salt lakes on Rottnest Island. The tree is strong but maybe the wind is stronger.

Where are you? #1 -  this is the first image in this set which begins the storyline.  (I think, anyway, it's a work in progress). This series are  constructed images that I conceptualise as stills from a short movie. 'Constructed' in the sense that they are preplanned shoots with an actor and a narrative base. It is a way of working I intend to do more of in future. Album link  https://plus.google.com/photos/108092487151722513439/albums/6080412435935829761

Long shadow -  I photographed from the escarpment above, as dusk fell rapidly, and this shadow quickly creeped out onto the plain in Namibia and the solitary tree. Using a tripod has helped to capture the detail in the, side lit ,grassland, even though my running with the camera on the tripod  tripod across the rocky top of the escarpment, to catch the shadow on the tree, was risky.  Keeping a camera on a tripod is one of those things that invites trouble and I did famously drop a medium format camera that way once, yet it is so tempting when moving between shots.

'Dawn is a feeling ... 
'You look around you. Things they astound you.
So breath in deep. You're not asleep.'  (Moody Blues)

We hope that for these ancient stupas and temples in Bagan, Myanmar...  'this day can last (another) 1000 years'.
(added to PLACE album)
 Wikipedia "From 1044 to 1287, Bagan was the capital as well as the political, economic and cultural nerve center of the Pagan Empire. Over the course of 250 years, Bagan's rulers and their wealthy subjects constructed over 10,000 religious monuments (approximately 1000 stupas, 10,000 small temples and 3000 monasteries)'

Two Nomad Women-Revisited A newly re-processed version of this image from a couple of years ago as a result of looking for images to use in the processing part of my talk for Fremantle Camera Club this Tuesday. Here's the description from last time I posted: 'I was delighted to be able to meet these two wonderful women, who invited us into their Yak wool tent to drink tea, high on the Tibetan Plateau. Shortly after this image they headed out in the misty rain to catch the calves so they could be tethered for the night.' To me these women seem utterly rooted in their land and their nomad culture.

Still going nowhere - on the recent Japan Photo Tour we revisited the bus Dai and I found last time. This February was milder than last so it's snow hat was not so high. I like this vertical image best from what I shot. I also like the footsteps which  kind of go nowhere too. Here's the link to the previous bus image with snow falling.

Against the wind
I'm still runnin' against the wind
I'm older now but still runnin' against the wind
Well I'm older now and still runnin
Against the wind'

I photographed this tree at least a decade ago and when I saw it again recently it seemed to be smaller if anything. The wind is really strong near the salt lakes on Rottnest Island. The tree is strong but maybe the wind is stronger.

in another world The title this time comes from the man on the left who seems to be lost in thought. I have been putting together a set of screen grabs of my processing of this image in colour  for a presentation I am giving at a local photo club next Tuesday. "15 screen grabs later I thought" wonder what it would look like in black and white?" and voila. Stronger really and the eyes go more to the man on the left. I also found his chai and emphasised his smoke while doing all this.

Sometimes I just sits ... - a hot bath is a great place to space out and not think about anything. However, if you are photographing someone  in the bath think about the steam. +Martin Bailey who is incredibly experienced in photographing Japanese wildlife recently discussed how the fog in these baths can throw off focus or the image can end up obscured when you try to photograph parallel to the water. His advice is to wait for the eddying breeze  to clear the mists a bit. Next time I will try for a little clearer image but I do like this expression. Martin's podcast is always worth tracking.

slice of life - one of the great joys of photography for me is to try and capture a small slice of life. As I work on the image later I wonder about this man hard at work on a machine like my mothers.What is he sewing? Who for?  In Kolkata as dusk approaches the scenes inside the open doorways are illuminated and the light on the inside and outside starts to equalise so that the two can have a conversation. Does he love his work? Is his  work inspired by love of family? Is he making something of beauty or for a beauty?

I am working on the material today for the January 2016  Kolkata workshop I will run together with Manjit Singh Hoonjan. Details soon. Join the mail list here. http://robertvankoesveld.com/new-photography-tours-be-upda…/

j'accuse - Naoko delivers the slightly accusing look I asked for on a shoot the time before last in Kyoto. I stumbled on this while reviewing cameras and lenses in Lightroom and did some work on it just now. The canon 5D3 is kind of noisy at iso 2000 so needs work to reduce that. was one thing I was reminded of. It was after dusk. It also reminds me that working without an assistant is not ideal. A little fill from a reflector or off camera softened light (held by that missing assistant) would have helped here. All good learning of course.I think of this series as "Where are you?"(when I need you!). More to come.

a subtle grace seems present in this humble building near a village cemetery in Hokkaido. Water and buckets to wash the graves of family and ancestors. A silent witness to care and community.

three -Kyoto - There is a fashion in Kyoto of visiting Japanese or foreigners dressing as maiko. Personally I am uncomfortable with it as real maiko work so hard to achieve their skills. It seems like calling yourself 'doctor' without having done a Phd. Still I guess most people see it as a sort of 'homage'. This girl was looking back so her mum could photograph her and enjoying a mother/daughter day in Kyoto. I like that there are 2 fake maiko (one a poster)  and one real puppy in the image all looking my way. (Dressing in normal kimono, without white makeup, high shoes and such ,of course is something I totally support)

Iceworld-  Hokkaido - I also like the built environment in Hokkaido both old and new buildings that share the landscape with the famous single trees and groves. The late afternoon sun and the round tanks add a space element for me too.

Confident Reader - the boys down the back look on as this Bhutanese student reads aloud for the visitors in a village school. Education is an important pillar for measuring Gross National Happiness in Bhutan.
I stumbled on this image from one of our previous photo tours while preparing tonight's talk  for Peregrine WA.  More information on our next Bhutan Heartland Photo Tour here. http://summittravel.com.au. We are joined this year by +Matt Brandon

Conscientiousness - early morning in Kyoto and workers move into action to replenish the stocks of the restaurants and bars: a process that seems to go on through the day and into the night, as deliveries are made by foot, bike and cart down narrow streets. Added to my street colour album on G+

Tomitsuyu is one of the Maiko we photographed on my recent Japan Photo Tour. The group experienced a banquet with Maiko, Geiko and Jikata attending and agreed to leave cameras behind for the night so that we could fully experience their artistry. The artists themselves were surprised and delighted to be dancing without cameras firing. The next day, however, we had a lengthy shoot arranged so were able to photograph two maiko, inspired by our experience the night before. Tomitsuyu is one of the many Maiko and Geiko I have been photographing over the last few years. It is a pleasure to witness her developing presence as she studies and practices her art. The book is in its final stages now but final publication may well be a year away.
