Gailen Mapes61,362Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  R-S - 29 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 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 +2014-03-29 11:45:451911318CC G+

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 +2013-12-29 11:44:2619412114CC G+

It's Wildlife Wednesday. Here's a plump northern elephant seal pup resting on its mother's busom. Please excuse me for posting yet another northern elephant seal (Mirounga angustirostris). I just finished the draft for my book, The Onshore Lives of Northern Elephant Seals, a couple days ago, and the draft is currently getting some tough love in the hands of 28 test readers. Thus, I'm in the mood for sharing a picture of this amazing species. 

I hope you enjoy it.

From a conversation in the library with Ms. J, this afternoon:

(She handed me a book she was considering checking out, called Quirky Kids: Understanding and Helping Your Child Who Doesn't Fit In – When to Worry and When Not to Worry.)

Mike: "You already understand. You were a quirky kid. I was a quirky kid. We're both intimately familiar with what it's like to be quirky kids."

Ms. J: "Yeah, but we both grew up to be socially maladjusted freaks."

Mike: "You say that like it's a bad thing."

The Onshore Lives of Northern Elephant Seals

Done! I just finished the draft of my forthcoming book, The Onshore Lives of Northern Elephant Seals. (Well, sort of. Writers never really finish, right? I'm sure I'll still fiddle with it some more.) 

Now I feel like this elephant seal looks. After I get back from the aviation museum, I'll start sending it out to test readers. 

I have mixed feelings about The Onshore Lives of Northern Elephant Seals. I think I made a good natural history book, but I'm still not sure it should ever be published. We'll see how the test readers react to such emotionally challenging content.

This picture, perhaps sadly, isn't in the book. There are a lot of photos I would have liked to put in, but they just didn't fit with the narrative. I might try to find ways to stick in this and a handful ofo... more »

Looking for Test Readers

I'm nearly done with the rough draft of The Onshore Lives of Northern Elephant Seals. I'll probably finish tomorrow. 

This is the rough draft with the words and pictures, but it is not yet formatted in a way that looks like a finished book. I'm looking for what you think about it, what you like, what you dislike, what you would change and how, corrections of any errors you find, any editorial comments, etc.

In case you are familiar with my book Growing Up Humming, I must be clear that The Onshore Lives of Northern Elephant Seals is not cute, not rated G, not uplifting nor heartwarming. Elephant seals have very harsh lives, and  many of their behaviors are diametrically opposed to human values. 

If you'd like to be a test reader, let me know. 

Thank you.

Northern Elephant Seal

Well, you asked for it, so I'm making the book The Onshore Lives of Northern Elephant Seals. I'm not sure I'll ever try to publish it, but we'll see how things shape up after I make it. It's coming together very quickly, because I already had all the pictures and more than 95% of the writing done; I mostly need to put it together and finesse it.

I'm considering using this as the photo for the cover. What do you think of this one for a book cover? Yea or nay?

This story warmed my heart. I love the kindness toward others in this story. I also love what it says about people's true worth being greater than you might think based upon their appearances. I loved how it shows most anyone can be raised up with a helping hand, and shows not to give up hope. This also resonates with my sentimental, "everyone has a book inside of them" feelings.

See for yourself.

Wow, 409,600 ISO. It wasn't much more than a decade ago when I was reluctant to use ISO 400 film, because the film grain was the size of boulders. 

And it's pocket-sized, full frame, with 4K video capability. While I prefer an optical viewfinder that shows you the view through the taking lens over an EVIL (Electronic Viewfinder, Interchangeable Lens) camera design, this sounds interesting.

Here's a common buckeye, just because I'm in the mood to show a pretty butterfly. I hope you enjoy it.

Part of wildlife photography is finding the right animal. You can find hundreds of common buckeyes (or whatever other creature) who are skittish, faded and torn, etc. Then, every now and then, you stumble upon one who is in outstanding condition, and has an unusually tolerant disposition.  This particular buckeye was one of the first times I ran across a creature in outstanding shape, who was willing to pose perfectly and let me approach as close as I want for as long as I want.

A related aspect of wildlife photography is the economics of time and other resources. After enough experience, you come to realize that it's often faster and more effective to give up on photographing one that's not going well and find another where everything is smoother, rather sticking... more »

This sounds like it could be a breakthrough which might lead to greatly improved camera sensors,

Then again, I see the news for various emerging technologies all the time, year after year, decade after decade. Exciting as they seem, extremely few of them ever make it into available products on the market.

I guess we'll see.

As I'm getting close to finishing the book I'm currently working on, I'm considering doing a book about Northern elephant seals, next. I've been wavering for a long time whether I should make my elephant seal book at all, because I'm convinced there's no market for it. And yet part of me still feels drawn to make my elephant seal book, anyway – feels like their story needs to be told.

This is a bittersweet shot, with a lot more going on than it may seem to the casual observer. Northern elephant seals only have one pup, and they only have the resources to raise one. Sometimes, when they lose a child of their own, they'll adopt nearby orphans. This elephant seal cow was taking care of 6 adopted babies. It's simultaneously heartwarming to see this mothering instinct, so strong as to adopt all the orphan pups around – and heartbreaking, because she can'tpro... more »

For those of you who don't know, I wrote and photographed a book Called Growing Up Humming.

Growing Up Humming spent 6 months straight as the number one top-rated book out of almost 50,000 in its category on Amazon, until it hit the 6 month limit. It has an average of 4.9 out of 5 stars, with more than 65 5 star reviews.

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT

Those of you who know me know that fashion is my life. I only associate with true fashionistas, and I wouldn't be caught dead in off-the-rack clothes.

Somehow I've become known as a nature photographer, despite my complete aversion to the outdoors. (It musses my hair, wrinkles my shirts, muddies my pants, and worst of all it scuffs my shoes). 

Let's face it. There's simply nothing new left in nature to photograph. It's all been done. There's nothing new under the sun. Nothing is original. Ronald Reagan once asked, "A tree's a tree; how many more do you need to look at?" He has a point. I don't need to look at anything in nature any more, and neither do you.

People who look at my pictures of nature sometimes ask me, "Where's the human interest?" And you know what? Without people in the... more »

So, Google added view counts to people's profiles today. Some people are trying to figure out the implications, some are trying to figure out how it will be used, and some are just saying they don't care.

This is just wild conjecture on my part, but I'll guess that some (related) reasons behind it are:
1) At a time when Facebook is making headlines for decreasing the reach of posts, Google is using view counts to let it be known that you'll get lots more action, here.
2) While the media keeps proclaiming that Google+ is a "ghost town," Google is showing how silly and false that claim is. 
3) For people who are dubious whether it's worth using their G+ account because they wonder whether anyone will see their posts, this shows them that it's worth using.

I already knew that many of my posts get plenty of engagement, and I don't... more »

I've shown the color version of this bristlecone pine photo before, but I thought you all might also like seeing it in black and white. I hope you enjoy it.

Have a great weekend!

Here's a phone snapshot of some of the wiring for an old Cray supercomputer, at the Computer History Museum, today. The wiring for these old computers was amazingly complex. This is just a small section of what was practically a wall of many thousands of wires. Imagine putting these together, where a clutter of wires like this has to be put together absolutely flawlessly – any wires in the wrong place would screw up the logic.

WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY
Curated by +Morkel Erasmus and +Mike Spinak     

It's Wildlife Wednesday. Here's a white tailed kite staring at me. I hope you enjoy it.

I'm sorry for being a somewhat absentee curator, lately. I haven't been as active online, while I focus on finishing writing my book. 

Remember that every Wednesday is Wildlife Wednesday. Post your pictures of wildlife. Do a search and look at other people's pictures of wildlife. Any wild creature will do. Big or small. From bugs to birds. All you have to do is post a wildlife picture, and mark it with #WildlifeWednesday  

I hope to see a lot of your wildlife pictures. Show the wild animals you've encountered!

Go here for a live broadcast of physicists at Stanford discussing the recent discoveries about the big bang and gravitational waves. It starts in about 4 minutes.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Personally, I'd be a lot more impressed with someone famous for seeing the intrinsic worth in all animals, and making all animals welcome, than with someone famous for purportedly driving all the snakes out. But any cause for a celebration is a good one, so have a great day!

Beware!

(I just had to say that today, so I might as well post a photo to match. Here's a gopher snake. I hope you enjoy it.)

I don't know enough about this to comment on the science, but I'd love it if this works fairly effectively. I've never had a headache, but my brother, father, and three of my closest friends all suffer from migraines often. I hope some technological relief is on the way for them.

OK, here's an apparently real video of 20 strangers paired up to make out with each other, unlike the video I showed the other day – which turned out to be an advertisement.

Happy Pi Day, everyone!

(No, this picture doesn't have much to do with Pi. I don't think I have any pictures that do. Sorry.)

This is a phone snapshot of a cement mixer, in case you're wondering. I hope you enjoy it.

Apparently that kissing video I posted the other day turned out to be a clothing advertisement with actors and models.

WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY

Morkel isn't here this week. He's on a safari.

Here's an Aggregating Anemone Catching and Eating a Brown Crab. I hope you enjoy it.

In this video, 20 strangers are paired up to make out with each other.

This is even more lovely than it is weird.

It's Sign Sunday.

Here's one of the first mobile phone snaps I ever made, from Delray Beach, Florida – with a less than 1 megapixel phone camera that had no exposure control and no ability to focus. I took this shot not only because of the statement "This is not Fashion   It's Life.", but also because of the way that the world of fashion is literally giving this bewildered man a headache. 

I still have lots of silly signs left in my collection. I hope this one gives you a chuckle.

After posting the bad news about Getty, yesterday, I'm happy to be able to post a piece of good news for the photography world.

Do you remember a few weeks ago I posted that the FAA considers it illegal to sell photos made with a drone copter? A federal judge has now ruled that the FAA has not made any legally binding rules against it. You are currently free make and sell drone photos as you wish. (Just remember that there are places where they are still not allowed.)


Thanks to +Barry Blanchard for bringing this to my attention.

Read a novel in under 90 minutes? What horrible idea!

Folks, if your reading comprehension speed determines the speed you read novels, then perhaps you're doing it wrong. Novels are to be savored, not sped through as fast as you can. The "winner" in the game of reading is the one who gets the most out of what s/he reads, not the one who finishes most quickly. Slow down and take the time to think about everything as you read it. 

You may be able "read" a novel in 90 minutes, but you can't read a novel in 90 minutes.

Next, someone should make an app that quadruples the speed at which music albums play. ;-)

I wonder whether people would be as enthusiastic for an amazing innovation that would speed up their sex acts to just 30 seconds....


P.S. That said, the technology is interesting, and may have some useful... more »
