I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050114186132
Curating Content on Google+3,618Pʜᴏᴛᴏɢʀᴀᴘʜʏ ENGAGERS Cɪʀᴄʟᴇ  Nearly a full circle this week!Quick start instructions:➀ post a link to a G+ photo in the comments below,➁  check out some photos from others and +1 and comment on them,➂ share this post (public),➃ add this circle, and refresh it every week.You will be added (or stay in) the circle share next week!Full story: This circle is for engaging G+ users about photography.  The interaction happens mainly in the comments, but of course re-shares too.  Post a link to a photo from your stream during the last week in the comments below.  It can be your photo or someone else's.  Then from the comments here, check out someone's link, and comment on / critique that photo.  Try to pick someone new each week, so you will meet new people and make new friends (more than 1 is ok too)Results: your photos will get more exposure, you will be circled more, and you'll find active people to add to your stream.  Re-sharing this circle is highly recommended, and some form of engagement is mandatory.  That will result in a curated circle that's always fresh!  If you drop out for any reason, you can get back in at any time by adding content & engaging in the current weekly circle!This will be done once per week, starting fresh again.  It is for active G+'ers that want more interaction and exposure. This is a hybrid idea, taking the best parts of circle sharing, communities, and G+, and rolling them into one!Special thanks to the people who shared the circle in the last weeks: +viviane cristina moura leite +Trever McGhee +Malthus John +Jürgen Keil +Ludovic Moreeuw +PhillyBelle Turnipseed +Share Your Circle  #publiccirclesproject #photography #sharedcircles #weeklythemecircles #sharingiscaring #greatphotography #beautifulpictures #curatedcircle 2013-02-21 04:00:124781855176

I often talk about what it means to me to curate a theme and how I view things. To me, the best themes are the ones that have highly interactive curators. The vast majority also have a page to compliment their theme. A theme page is a great place for the curators to share information about the theme and to list the name or names of the people currently curating the theme. IMHO, a good theme page should provide information about the theme, how to participate, and who is curating the theme.  Most theme pages share some of the best work.  A few share all submissions.There are many themes that were created and then abandoned by their creator so I wanted to know, "Which themes rock?". I asked the G+ community to tell me which themes have highly interactive curators and an active community. This circle is based on community feedback and my personal view of what it means to have a theme that rocks.  ────────A good place to start if you are new to themes is perhaps the about page of +Monochrome Monday or the about page of +Daily Photography Themes +Daily Fine Art Themes.  If there are any themes that you feel rock that aren't mentioned, be sure to add a comment to this post, include the name of the theme, what day of the week the theme takes place or daily, the name of the page, and the name of the curators.  If there is no page, please state this.  Themes without a page are less likely to be listed but some very interactive themes don't have a page. Because of2012-08-29 13:45:173048995110

Scott Detweiler22,344This is my top circle for inspiration.A few words on this circle:- These are people that inspire ME, and may not do the same for you.- Not all of them are photographers, there are artists, re-sharers, and others.- I don't limit people by how many followers they may or may not have, as I don't care.Photographers I enjoy may not inspire me and my work, so they won't be in here.  I do have circles for my favorite photographers and so on, but they may not be an inspiration for my projects.If you want to get in on this circle you need to have a profile that isn't blank and examples of work you think I will find inspiring.If you like this circle, feel free to share it.  I am sharing it because these people rock and hopefully will inspire others.  If you are in this circle, it would be kind of you to share it as well.Enjoy!2012-07-14 18:15:2236829917

Jeff Sullivan131,363Daily Photography Themes on G+: Curators Circle v1.0Daily photo themes can be a great way to share your best work, or to find creative work by others for enjoyment and inspiration.Lists of the daily themes, with notes on any participation details, are maintained by the following people:+Eric Leslie - http://ericleslie.com/guides/daily-photography-themes-googleplus/+Kol Tregaskes - http://bit.ly/kolgplusphotodailyhashtags+Ray Bilcliff - http://www.trueportraits.com/daily-photo-themes.htmJust Include the theme like today's #SelflessSunday in the text of your post, and others can find it in searches and you can enter that tag in the search box at the top of the page to find photos by other contributors.  However, that only works if many people using a theme are looking at (and commenting on) each others' posts.  On G+, like in so many areas in life, you get what you give.I've created two circles: one containing theme pages and this one containing theme curators.  Theme curators are among the most active photographers (or photography lovers) on G+, but if they're actively curating their theme, visiting most or all posts and interacting with many (comments, +1s, shares), they're also among the busiest, especially as the G+ community grows.  Keep your expectations of them reasonable and you won't be disappointed.  The golden rule, karma, "what goes around comes around"... take responsibility and be the interaction you want to see.  As people come to recognize your comments and posts, you'll get to know people and develop circles of community members to interact with on G+.This is intended to be a comprehensive, inclusive circle, so if I've missed a theme curator please let me know, thanks!2012-07-08 15:27:4433222730

I often talk about what it means to me to curate a theme and how I view things. To me, the best themes are the ones that have highly interactive curators. The vast majority also have a page to compliment their theme. A theme page is a great place for the curators to share information about the theme and to list the name or names of the people currently curating the theme. IMHO, a good theme page should provide information about the theme, how to participate, and who is curating the theme.There are many themes that were created and then abandoned by their creator so I wanted to know, "Which themes rock?". I asked the G+ community to tell me which themes have highly interactive curators and an active community. This circle is based on community feedback and my personal view of what it means to have a theme that rocks.A good place to start if you are new to themes is perhaps the about page of +Monochrome Monday or the about page of +Daily Fine Art Themes.  This circle is part of an ongoing series and will eventually include, "Charles Lupica's guide to themes on G+™".*If there are any themes that you feel rock that aren't mentioned, be sure to add a comment to this post, include the name of the theme, what day of the week the theme takes place or daily, the name of the page, and the name of the curators.  If there is no page, please state this.  Themes without a page are less likely to be listed but some very interactive themes don't have a page.* *Because of the limitation put on posts by Google Plus, the curator names will not be hot linked nor will the page names.  Sorry if this causes an inconvenience but only 100 links can be put into a post and this one contains close to 300.* Let's rock.Sunday• Dawn on Sunday  #dawnOnSunday  +Dawn On Sunday  +Ray Bilcliff +Sherry McBriar • Sacred Sunday  #sacredSunday  +SacredSunday™  +Charles Lupica +Manfred Berndtgen +Margaret Tompkins +Robyn Morrison +Sherrie von Sternberg  • Selfless Sunday  #selflessSunday +#SelflessSunday Theme on G+    +Jeffrey Sullivan • Sentimental Sunday  #sentimentalSunday +Sentimental Sunday Theme   +Louisa Catharine Forsyth• Sign Sunday  #signSunday +Sign Sunday +Jonathan Davis +Lori Carey • Sky Sunday  #SkySunday +Sky Sunday - Photography Theme  +Randy Scherkenbach +Patrick Scherkenbach • *Zen Sunday*   #zenSunday +Zen Sunday +Charlotte Therese Björnström +Simon Kitcher +Nathan Wirth  ────────Monday• Backyard Birding Monday  #backyardBirdingMonday +Backyard Birding Monday #BackyardbirdingMonday   +Celeste Odono +Ricky L Jones• DOF Monday (Depth of Field)  #DOFMonday +DOFMonday +Mara Acoma +L2012-06-06 17:32:51260927778
Peter From36,228The CAPTURE THE NATURE Circle –– Validated First Version #CircleSharingForThePeopleCNCVF The time has come to reshare my validated first revision of the Capture The Nature Circle (CNC) with 463 excellent artists that produce great nature photography. You don't want to miss this one. I am proud to promote these great people and I am sure they will bring lots and lots of great and interesting images to your feeds.If YOU want to hop on the next CNC train, do the following:1. Help spread the word and reshare this circle post. Why? If you think you should be promoted, you should be willing to do the same for your fellow artists. Simple as that.2. Ask for inclusion in the comments. I will check every feed.3. Make sure that you share your own original nature photography in your feed. If there are too many reshares of other peoples' work, irrelevant YouTube clips, animated GIFS, blog post teasers etc., I might not add you to the circle. The CNC is a validated quality circle that should bring people great nature imagery to their feeds.NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the next revision of the CNC. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this circle post and let me know that you did so.HOW TO AVOID FLOODING OF THIS POST IN YOUR FEED:This post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeopleCNCVF so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares. Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/Cheers!2012-05-28 11:01:11463125156134

Gailen Mapes7,020Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Unknown or Other Camera R-Z - 14 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. I have had to split some circles because they exceeded 500 members.My last share of the "hand picked" circles was March 15. As before these circles are photographers that I admire. 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 22 for this set.A word about spam... A lot of previously good photographers are sharing a lot of goofy stuff these days. Remember, if you are in the "Hand Picked" circles, you are represented as "more photos, less spam." Goofy animated GIFs don't hack it and I reserve the right to drop you from these circles. So if you were dropped, this is probably the reason. (I have the same 5000 limit as everyone else. I can't afford to keep spammers in my circles.)2012-03-22 20:20:5832616111

"Distant Thunder"

Frozen in the cold, lonely, familiar glow of a computer screen, I abide in a monotony of keystrokes and mouse clicks. I should go to sleep. Restless tired eyes look for something new, but it's my ears that whisper of a change. A deep but almost imperceptible shaking of the floor beneath me, and the house has moved, just a little? I remember that feeling like a dream. Distant thunder. That first rumble of spring can pull me from this place of transfixed indolence like nothing else, to switch off the computer and all the lights, and open the windows. To sit within the darkness and feel the cool air wash in over me, damp with spring, a melange of rotting leaves and wood and thawing earth flooding my nose.

Now I want to go outside and stand in the rain until I'm soaked, shivering, thawed, hopeful. That all this dead wood might break away when the leading edge of the storm finally hits. I want that wild roiling wind to flatten me to the ground, thunder crashing louder than the most stubborn self doubt. To be utterly overwhelmed in that storm by something that isn't me, and wake up when it has passed and remember what is.___

I'm a little annoyed at the apparent backlash against the marriage equality movement coming from within parts of the LGBT community. Claiming that marriage is nothing but a non-secular throwback to absolute patriarchy is narrow-minded at best, and insulting to those of us who define our marriages on our own terms, and consider our partners absolute equals. I'll never hesitate to say that the government really has no business in defining what a marriage is or isn't, but if you're going to give special financial, medical, legal, and custodial rights to people, you need to do it in a completely non-discriminatory way. It's not a frivolous thing for people to want marriage equality, and it's misguided to think that once certain groups have access to those rights, that they'll forget about the remaining folks who still are not treated equally.

I'm a little annoyed at the apparent backlash against the marriage equality movement coming from within parts of the LGBT community. Claiming that marriage is nothing but a non-secular throwback to absolute patriarchy is narrow-minded at best, and insulting to those of us who define our marriages on our own terms, and consider our partners absolute equals. I'll never hesitate to say that the government really has no business in defining what a marriage is or isn't, but if you're going to give special financial, medical, legal, and custodial rights to people, you need to do it in a completely non-discriminatory way. It's not a frivolous thing for people to want marriage equality, and it's misguided to think that once certain groups have access to those rights, that they'll forget about the remaining folks who still are not treated equally. There are millions of us that already have these rights that are fighting tooth and nail for those that don't. That's not going to change.

I understand that there are countless other issues that deserve much more attention than they get, and that the list of marginalized and disenfranchised groups in this country is very long indeed. There is so much that needs to be changed. That doesn't make marriage equality an unworthy cause, and I think that we'd all be better off supporting and respecting the issues that we each hold dear, instead of disparaging the ones that we don't find personally compelling. Respect and mutual support always make the strongest alliances and the most cohesive movements. In the end, we're all trying to make a world the celebrates and supports our different needs and wants, right?___

"Oasis"

Adrift in snow,
ensconced in glass,
green tiny fronds
defy the season;
an oasis of hope
surrounded by winter.

I remember better days,
days beneath the dappled sun
with a gentle song of water at my feet,
and how the light danced upon your eyes
to reflect a love that made me feel
like I was at the very center of things.

On the heels of USA Today's logo redesign, I've decided to retool my own. My new design represents an elegant simplicity, while allowing for limitless imaginative expression, underscored by a humble reverence for the creative process. It polls well with hipsters (ironic), senior citizens (easy to see), republicans (white), democrats (unity of color), independents (open minded), and mimes ().

Signed prints, mugs, t-shirts, and keychains will be available soon!

"I hear you have a vegetable garden"

So we have a lot of deer around our house, and it seems that some of them are getting very tame. This one walked right up to me, and wanted to eat my camera.
