Henry A. Otero (Hanko9)105,143#Spartacus : War Of The DamnedGaius Claudius Glaber is dead. Many months have passed since his defeat, and the rebel army, led by Spartacus and his generals Crixus, Gannicus and Agron, continue to amass victories over Rome. With the rebel numbers swelling to thousands of freed slaves, it has become a force that has started to challenge even the mighty armies of Rome.Spartacus is more determined than ever to bring down the entire Roman Republic. Following the death of Ashur, Naevia and Crixus fight as one with newfound strength and determination. And Gannicus, always seeking toembrace life to the fullest, shares his bed with the beautiful and dangerous Saxa.Together, the rebels engage in one bloody skirmish after another and prepare for the inevitable: a full out war with Rome.The Roman Senate turns to its wealthiest citizen, Marcus Crassus, for aid. A powerful, strategic politician, he respects his opponent and refuses to make the same mistakes Glaber and his predecessors have. With a young and fiercely competitive Julius Caesar as an ally, Crassus is determined to crush Spartacus and his rebellion.The epic conclusion of a legendary journey, Spartacus: War of the Damned will unleash a battle unlike anything ever seen before.Spartacus: War of the Damned [Season Premiere]2013-01-26 03:00:00143G+

Gailen Mapes66,836Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  A-C - 14 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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 +2014-08-14 10:24:52192005CC G+

Gary Matthews19,315Featured Engagers Forum!Social media at its best is a great conversation. The #FeaturedEngagersForum is a shared circle honoring people who, in my experience, practice and promote that art."Featured" means that if you’re in this circle, I'm inviting you to share a link to a favorite post of your own -- either recent or classic.Linking to a post is easy: Just click the small down-arrow at upper right. From the drop-down menu, choose “Link to post”: Copy the web address that pops up, and paste it into your comment.Please visit each other’s links. I certainly will! Please also visit each other’s profiles. I already have! All of you, in your own ways, have welcomed me to your engagement roundtable. My earnest hope is to return that favor by connecting you with others who will support you as you have supported me.This circle consists mostly of friends who interact with my non-circle posts in the form of plusses, comments, and reshares. Merely doing these things, however, won’t guarantee you a spot. Not doing them won't necessarily keep you out. To join this circle, you must join the conversation either by engaging directly, or by elevating the level of discourse in other ways. (For example, by sharing content that others might want to talk about.)==========================Some of my own recent posts:Make Your Own Animated GIFshttps://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/4DsG8Wtvs2UCircle Sharing on Ⓖⓞⓞⓖⓛⓔ  Ⓟⓛⓤⓢhttps://plus.google.com/u/0/+GaryMatthews/posts/bk8u3Rv8SzuIs Circle Sharing Really a Pyramid Scheme?Not if you manage shared circles my way! ≧◔◡◔≦ https://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/CV95E6zZGWrWhat Happens to Abandoned Facebook Photos?They become digital “unclaimed freight” -- and Facebook makes billionshttps://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/1UY88CnpfqbMy Favorite Superhero -- Lois Lane!https://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/gfpL8qx9cU6Introducing Full-Width Link ImagesGoogle Plus follows Facebook initiativehttps://plus.google.com/u/0/+GaryMatthews/posts/aRNSNuoE22AGoogle Comments Unleashedby new full-width link formathttps://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/C4gvwkHDnGmUse ℱᗩﬡᙅᎩ ℱOﬡ☂ᔕ and ϟ℘ℯ¢ḯαł ℭнαґα¢☂εґṧhttps://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/8GXkDfzzzsTA Knoxville Springtime!https://plus.google.com/u/0/+GaryMatthews/posts/XoDn4t5QM6vWhy I'm Changing My Namefrom "Gary L.

Gailen Mapes65,089Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  A-C - 14 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 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 +Gailen Mapes2014-06-14 11:12:201974111CC G+

"Thy fate is the common fate of all; Into each life some rain must fall."

Well, it only took me two months to finally get my act together.

"True success is overcoming the fear of being unsuccessful."
~Paul Sweeney




Personally, there's no way I'm going anywhere near that thing, except on the other end of my zoom lens. However, it got me thinking how many of us sometimes avoid the things that make us uncomfortable.

What are YOU afraid of? I'm not a fan of spiders either, but the guy that does our pest control every month tells me they are good for the environment, and keep balance in the rest of the bug population around our house. Hmm...

Still, I think I'll keep safe distance from such things. I never photographed a snake before, but the festival I attended yesterday had one of those traveling zoos, where they introduce animals to young kids, and explain their various roles in nature.

Despite my initial fears, I did actually take the opportunity to pet the nine-banded armadillo, which turned out to be quite a cute little animal, and very friendly.

While you are all out enjoying your weekend, take a moment to think about something you are afraid of, and if how you plan on conquering that fear.

HAPPY WEEKEND, PLUS PEEPS!

"I got a real good feelin' somethin' bad about to happen..."

I'm not usually one for watching country music videos, but I happened to be flipping channels last night and caught this video, and it's quite addictive! A very catchy chorus, and love the way the hooks keep punching you with that hypnotic beat. I think I'll definitely have to check out some more stuff by Miranda Lambert...

"There is something of the marvelous in all things of nature."
~Aristotle




I couldn't think of a better way to honor +Sumit Sen on his birthday than by sharing some of nature's beauty with him like he does with us every day. I can't imagine you aren't all already following his work. But if for some reason you've never heard of him, please make sure to head over to his page ASAP and check out his amazing photography. Although he is perhaps most known for his incredible collection of bird shots, he has some fabulous environmental portraits as well. As if that wasn't enough, he's been here on G+ since the beta days, and you really won't find a nicer guy to have in your Circles. 

Happy Birthday! +Sumit Sen

Copyright Controversy!?

It's pretty simple... If you don't own it, get permission. +Thomas Hawk generously shares his work for all of us to observe and enjoy. So basically, in the words of Will Wheaton, don't be a dick, and read the license guidelines!

[Please leave comments over on the OP.]

Those of you who know me know that I’m very generous with my photography.  I license 99% of my images Creative Commons noncommercial and am happy for anyone to use my images under the terms of that fairly liberal license.  It is a very specific license however.

I do make a fair amount of money licensing my images commercially and my general feeling is that if a for profit company wants to use an image, I’m happy to license it if they want to pay a fair licensing fee.

A few years back I was disgusted by an article that Valleywag wrote.  I had first hand knowledge of facts reported in the article and felt that Valleywag had purposely twisted a story in a dishonest way.

At that time I contacted +Nick Denton and asked him to remove any images of mine that had been published on Valleywag previously and asked that none of my images be used on his site in the future.  Valleywag complied and removed my images that they'd previously used.

Valleywag is part of Gawker, a commercial enterprise and as such is not entitled to use my images without my permission in violation of my license.  It’s also a publication I’d rather my work not be associated with.

So I was disappointed tonight to see that Valleywag had written an article that I felt was disparaging towards +Kevin Rose and that they used a photograph of mine without authorization, payment or approval.

What’s just as bad is that when notified about this infringement Kevin Montgomery the author of the piece seemed to suggest that because my photo is licensed Creative Commons Non-Commercial that he was within his rights to use it.  Since when did the Gawker Media Empire become a non commercial entity?

I want Kevin Rose to know that they did not have approval to use that photo and I’ve asked Kevin Montgomery to remove the image.

In the spirit of this whole ice bucket thing, I’d also ask Valleywag to make a $2,000 donation to cover the copyright infringement of this image to the ALS Association in lieu of a licensing fee to me on the image.

Also maybe someone from the Gawker Media legal department can school Kevin Montgomery on how photo licensing works.___Copyright Controversy!?

"The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion."
~Albert Camus




While visiting Boston a few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to walk the Freedom Trail. At the start (near the visitor information center) there are actors/guides dressed in period clothing. After a quick conversation about where we were  from and what we had planned for the day, she allowed me to capture a quick portrait. She remarked at how many people pass by each day and snap pictures without ever saying a word, or even asking her it it's OK to do so. Sure, they are out in Public and serving a functional role for an audience. Nevertheless, common courtesy goes a long way, and she actually thanked me for asking permission, and taking the time to inquire about her.

Belated Birthday Wishes...

Apparently I missed the opportunity to offer these on time earlier this week, so please accept my apologies for the delay, and join me in wishing a Happy Birthday to +Shannon S. Myers. She is not only an amazing photographer of beautiful things, but a long-time friend since the early beta days of this network. If you aren't already following her, please go check out her stream, and I'm sure you'll be glad you did.

Hula Hoop Animation

I was shooting a concert in the park last night, and got a few frames of this girl playing around with her hula hoop. I brought it back into Photoshop CC, and experimented with the frame animation timeline. It is composed of only four frames, and is somewhat choppy. I tried to smooth it out a little with tweening, but that didn't go so well. Any suggestions for how to get this to look a little more natural are greatly appreciated...

I might upload these individual shots into an album, just to see if Google will #autoawesome  them for me, and how that version compares to the one created here from Photoshop.

Hope you are all having a great week so far! Make sure you take some time out to have a little fun too.

HAPPY THURSDAY, PLUS PEEPS!

I tried to smooth it out a little with tweening, but that didn't go so well. Any suggestions for how to get this to look a little more natural are greatly appreciated...

I might upload these individual shots into an album, just to see if Google will #autoawesome  them for me, and how that version compares to the one created here from Photoshop.

Hope you are all having a great week so far! Make sure you take some time out to have a little fun too.

HAPPY THURSDAY, PLUS PEEPS!___

Good Afternoon, Plus Peeps!

We are finally back from our Summer vacations, and will now begin slowly catching up with correspondence we missed along the way. I'm sure a few of you are eager to hear where we've been, and what we've been up to, so I won't disappoint...

Over the coming weeks, you'll see images from throughout New England, including Massachusetts and Rhode Island. From downtown Boston all the way to the mansions on the sea shore in Newport, we toured vigorously, cameras always at the ready. I look forward to sharing our travel adventures with you all soon!

For now, I hope you'll enjoy this peaceful tree we found amidst the gardens on the outer grounds of one of the mansions.

It's Maki's Birthday!

I was just about to head to bed, and realized I almost forgot to post some Birthday Wishes for +Maki Silberberg. Obviously my brain is tired, and if I was still allowed to drink it, desperately in need of some of this richly aromatic java. Alas, I'll have to settle for absorbing the contact aromas vicariously, as y'all are drinking the elixir of essential energy.

As you all know, Maki is supremely talented as a photographer, and totally rockin' the Mom thing now too. Tomorrow when I'm a little more coherent I'll scramble around for the nearest cupcake and toast to a super fabulous friend and colleague here in this wonderful community.

Hope you have an amazing Birthday, full of precious moments with family and friends!

Happy 4th of July

Many thanks to +Scott Kelby whose incredibly helpful article allowed me to experiment with better guidance this year. Getting just the right look takes a lot of trial and error. But having a solid starting point from which to finesse the final details made it SO much easier. I am super grateful to all the fine folks at +KelbyOne who give 100% to their members, and really take a heartfelt interest in our successes. I think it's fair to say I wouldn't be where I am today without the resources and encouragement from such a nurturing community. If you want to Shoot Like A Pro, then make sure to follow Scott on his blog, where there are always insights which can make your photography better and more fun!

Notifications Nightmare

On the bright side, I've been shooting a lot lately, and really enjoying the Summer so far. However, I've gotten pretty far behind in both my own posts as well as catching up with all of yours. Sorry I've been so out of touch, but the demands of real life kind of monopolized my calendar. Every time I think I've cleared the Inbox, more magically appear that I seem to have missed along the way. So I apologize sincerely if you tried to reach me and I didn't reply yet. I'll do my best to respond to everyone's emails, posts, comments and plusses as soon as I can.

I hope to get back to regular posting soon. In the meantime, feel free to check out the Events page on my +SmugMug site, so you can see what I've been up to. In addition to the concert schedule, I've been shooting a few headshots and portraits on the side. Miss you... more »

"Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark."
~Rabindranath Tagore



While on vacation in Colorado a couple weeks ago, I got my first opportunity to photograph a hummingbird. At the train station, waiting for the Cog Railway to take us to the top of Pike's Peak, there is a feeder hanging right below the awning, next to the giant clock on the second floor. The area was restricted to employees only, but when I asked the manager, she agreed to let me get up close and take pictures for a few minutes. These magnificent little creatures are SO fast, it was incredibly challenging trying to get a shot when they weren't moving, let alone get one with their wings frozen in motion. But given the circumstances, I think I did pretty good for my first time shooting this subject.

No Standing
...while train is in motion

OK, I might have broken the rules, but only for a second. The windows on the train were pretty tall, so I had to stand up a little to reach my point and shoot out the top to get a few quick snaps of where we were headed. This shot is from the Cog Railway, on the way down from Pike's Peak in Colorado. Despite temperatures in the mid '70s at the base of the mountain, the summit featured winds of nearly 17 mph and only 28 degrees. And as you can see, there was still plenty of snow visible along the way! Roughly an hour and a half each way, and what incredible views from that altitude. Looking forward to reviewing the rest of the shots from this adventure...

Bison Burgers & Beer

After nearly a week visiting family in Colorado, we are finally back home in Pennsylvania, catching up on our rest and letting our bodies get back to a normal schedule. The fresh air at high altitude was invigorating, and the scenery was unbelievably awesome! I devoured these delicious nachos, while my wife had the Bison (Buffalo) Burger. Here's the restaurant in Idaho Springs where we had this meal:

Lots of photos to index from the trip... Look forward to sharing over the coming days and weeks, so you too can experience our adventures in Red Rocks, Golden, Pike's Peak, Boulder, Denver and more!

Have a great weekend!

Are you a Leader or a Follower?


Yup, it's a trick question. I think sometimes we're all a little bit of both, and other times perhaps we're neither. Conformity is recommended in certain situations, but rebellion is encouraged in others? Most of the people in my life that I consider successful have one thing in common: they aren't afraid to take risks!

I've met a lot of interesting people in my four decades on this planet. And some of the most memorable would probably be described by the mainstream as crazy or weird or eccentric... But being comfortable taking risks doesn't come natural to everyone (I'm counting myself in this category), and I'm not even sure if it's a trait that can be taught or learned. 

I'd like to take this opportunity to share my personal philosophy that...
Normal is BORING!

I'd like to take this opportunity to share my personal philosophy that...
Normal is BORING!

I mean, what is "normal" anyway? If a large enough portion of society places a value on a particular belief or behavior, does that make it worthy of replication? I'm not sure if there are any right or wrong answers here, only more questions about the pros and cons of following your own muse...

Last week I saw a post by +martin shervington inviting participants to share in a new project he was working on with +Chris Brogan, and I wanted to know more about this #FreakQuest  and how it might shed some additional light on some of the above questions. You can find more information by clicking on the hashtag, or following the event link below:

I haven't watched the video yet, but I'm looking forward to contemplating their viewpoints, and trying to plan my own interpretation of what comes next for my own quest. I'll be putting together a followup post to this, with my thoughts about what being a freak means to me, and how I've at times felt both proud and ashamed of how life as an artist has often changed the trajectory of my destiny.

+martin shervington graciously put together a Shared Circle of people asking similar questions, all looking for answers on their own journeys. And while I haven't yet had the chance to review them all, I'm overdue for a Spring cleaning of my circles anyway, to make room for some new faces. If you would like to meet some of these freaks, then feel free to click through to his link, and maybe even make some new friends...
