Gary McLaren1,175New Engagers Circle on Google+Over the past few weeks as I have become more active here on G+ I have been extremely grateful for all the comments, +1s and shares from the people I've met here. After all, the "magic" of G+ is in the engagement - conversing and interacting with people on topics of mutual interest.Today I want to share with you a circle of wonderful people that have been engaging with me. Many of these people, like me, are writers and authors. They're a great bunch and I guess many of them are the type of people you might be looking to connect with too. So check them out. Go say "Hi". Add them to your circles if you like. Or share the circle with others. I'm not in this circle... this is all about them not me. So please consider sharing it with others to create even more connections. Hat tip to +martin shervington for the inspiration to do this. Cheers, Gary.  P.S. I'm sorry if I somehow missed you off this circle... if I did it was accidental! But if this idea goes over well, I'll be doing it again. 2013-02-19 23:38:59153666

Canadian man enters U.S. by showing passport on iPad

TORONTO (AP) – A Canadian man who realized he forgot his passport as he approached the U.S. border found a new way to gain entry — his iPad.
By Victoria Arocho, for USA TODAY

Martin Reisch said Tuesday a slightly annoyed U.S. border officer let him cross into the United States from Quebec after he presented a scanned copy of his passport on his Apple iPad. Reisch was a half hour from the border when he decided to try to gain entry rather than turn back and make a two-hour trek back home to Montreal to fetch his passport.

He told the officer he was heading to the U.S. to drop off Christmas gifts for his friend's kids. He said that true story, the scanned passport and his driver's license helped him get through last week.

He said the officer seemed mildly annoyed when he handed himthe... more »

Marina Bay Lights || Blame The Monkey 2.0

A big thanks to everyone who has supported me over the last year and half. From blamethemonkey.com to Google+, I’ve really felt the love from everyone and things have been growing rapidly. Thank you so much -- I sincerely appreciate it.

We don’t have a team of people working at Blame The Monkey. It’s just myself and my wife, Naomi Locardi . Everything you see is the result of a true love for photography and a passion to freely give away knowledge, experience, and information. I do this purely because I love it and she helps me purely because I’ve cleverly tricked her into loving me. (I find that subliminal messages work the best).

Over the next week, significant updates will be coming to blamethemonkey.com, starting with the re-design followed by new content and tutorials. -- (Not to worry, all the before and afterswill st... more »

Marina Bay Lights || Blame The Monkey 2.0

A big thanks to everyone who has supported me over the last year and half. From blamethemonkey.com to Google+, I’ve really felt the love from everyone and things have been growing rapidly. Thank you so much -- I sincerely appreciate it.

We don’t have a team of people working at Blame The Monkey. It’s just myself and my wife, Naomi Locardi . Everything you see is the result of a true love for photography and a passion to freely give away knowledge, experience, and information. I do this purely because I love it and she helps me purely because I’ve cleverly tricked her into loving me. (I find that subliminal messages work the best).

Over the next week, significant updates will be coming to blamethemonkey.com, starting with the re-design followed by new content and tutorials. -- (Not to worry, all the before and afters will stay in place). -- Hopefully we can prevent taking the site down in the process but if things start acting funny, you’ll know the reason. So, please bear with me over the next week as I enter my sleepless, caffeine driven - obsessive - get things freaking done mode. :) Hopefully we’ll come out with something wonderful when it’s all said and done.

This is all in preparation for a huge life change in March. In 2011, with a comical blend of insomnia and jet lag, I flew 220,000 miles to feed my passion for Travel and Destination Photography, almost always with a return ticket. But as of March, after we finish relinquishing all of our personal possessions, there will be no more round trips, no more going home, and no more looking back. The world will become our new home with 22 countries planned for this year alone.

I openly invite you to come share the world with us and learn how to create beautiful photography in the process.

Marina Bay Sands and The Helix Bridge

With only 2 days to explore Singapore last week, I hit the big areas first - and they don’t get much bigger than Marina Bay. And what could possibly make one of the most opulent places in the world more attractive? How about a laser light show? Now that’s cool!

Trust me - having only a few days in this amazing city was a complete tease but thankfully, I’ll be back there very soon. :)

From Wikipedia:

Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort fronting Marina Bay in Singapore. Developed by Las Vegas Sands, it is billed as the world's most expensive standalone casino property at $8 billion, including cost of the prime land.

The Helix Bridge , previously known as the Double Helix Bridge , is a pedestrian bridge linking Marina Centre with Marina South in the Marina Bay area in Singapore. It was officially opened on 24 April 2010 at 9 pm, however only half was opened due to ongoing construction at the Marina Bay Sands.___

I might just have to go to DC to put my hands around the neck of +Alexander Angelides who has challenged me to a weight loss duel. Little did I know that I would have to give up the things I love most for 5-7 days. That's right vegetables. People, I had to give up vegetables!!!! He's turned me into a carnivore overnight and as I'm sure most men would find that attractive in a woman, it's really not a cute look on me. I found myself lusting over the bf's salad at lunch.

Today is crap! I have never in my life craved chocolate until today! To top it off my stream has been trolling me all day with news of the memes. Say it ain't so!!!!

Oh well tomorrow's a new day and I'm sure I'll be thanking Alex in the end.

+Alexius Jørgensen - I hope you'll allow it, since I have such a cheeky quote to go with it.;-) After all, even if we never pick up a brush in post, do we not paint with our cameras nearly every time we pick them up? This is straight out of the camera, and really, if I tried to use a brush on it, I think I'd ruin it. So here is my humble submission to your beautiful group, which I love SO much... #PaintItSaturday .

I have to tell you... shooting Niagara Falls in the dead of winter, with zero degree temps, everything coated in several thick layers of ice and lighting conditions that change every few seconds, was one of the most challenging things I have ever done photographically. It was amazing!;-) I can't wait to go back and do it again and I wouldn't hesitate to do it this time of year for several reasons, and here's why.

This particular photograph was taken some time around 11 pm on Saturday night, January 14, 2012, during Niagara's Festival of Lights, which is a really gorgeous time to visit and there are less people to contend with. On Friday nights, they have a short fireworks show over the falls which we missed this time, due to inclement weather. I will definitely try photographing that next time around.

This particular photograph was taken some time around 11 pm on Saturday night, January 14, 2012, during Niagara's Festival of Lights, which is a really gorgeous time to visit and there are less people to contend with. On Friday nights, they have a short fireworks show over the falls which we missed this time, due to inclement weather. I will definitely try photographing that next time around. Every night, they light up the falls with several giant spotlights that change the colors slowly from reds to greens to blues to yellows and purples. It's quite a spectacular sight from the Embassy Suites where we stayed, but it is massively impressive to be down there so late at night when it is just you, your camera and the rumble and roar of the falls.

In this image, you can see the Rainbow Bridge to the far left that brought us from the United States into Canada. In the center, are the American Falls, and those gorgeous falls to the right are Horseshoe Falls, which you just have to experience, to believe. That is a powerful lot of water flowing over that ledge. The sound of it is really very impressive.

It's been many years since I have visited Niagara Falls and this was the first time, with a dslr. I am not a landscape photographer and I still struggle a lot with some technical aspects of shooting wider angles than I am used to. Even shooting wide open here at f/4, ISO 100, my shutter speed was pretty slow at 10 seconds. I didn't use any filters this time. I was wishing in a big way that I had thought to rent a wide angle lens for this weekend. I don't own one and had to make do with my 24-105, which was frustrating at times, as I couldn't get the whole scene in the frame, the way I wanted. That is a definite must do for next time. Don't go to Niagara Falls without a wide angle lens!! You'll kick yourself! But honestly, wow. I enjoyed shooting the falls so much regardless, I forgot it was only zero degrees outside until I went back inside and realized I couldn't feel my fingers and toes and even the bottoms of my feet. Something to be careful about, for sure.

January is a great time to try photographing Niagara Falls, especially if you are willing to get out there late at night. If you've ever visited during high season, it is nearly impossible to set up a tripod without tripping someone or even being able to get a clear section to shoot without a million other people around you trying to do the same. I would welcome any and all advice for improving on the next round and I will take notes so feel free! Don't be shy about leaving your ideas here, as others might benefit from that too.

Good morning, #BreakfastClub !___

Yes, i'm posting two images in one day but please don't comment on both. I just wanted to make sure there was something for everyone. If you like trees, check out my image below. If you like water and mood, this one's for you. I probably won't post anything again for a few weeks it's feast or famine on this end :) Took this one at Pacific City on the Oregon coast a few weeks ago. And the one below is from Zion back in November. Happy Tuesday everyone! Still catching up so if I haven't paid you a vist I will soon :)

I Want My Incoming Stream Back!!!

+Google+, in my opinion, just made their first major screw up. The Incoming Stream, for those that aren't aware of it, was a stream that included posts from people that have added you to a circle, but you haven't added them. It was an extremely useful tool to quickly browse through posts from the people who've added you, see what they're interested in, and oftentimes, end up adding them to a circle.

At the beginning of this month I even issued a challenge entirely based on it (https://plus.google.com/100035762233109552669/posts/5CWJ13dGseJ) It was a fun way of getting people to get to know one another, to interact with someone that perhaps on the surface they didn't share much in common with, and maybe find something surprising.

Well, that's no longer possible. Earlier today, Google removed this stream. ... more »

Well, that's no longer possible. Earlier today, Google removed this stream. Posted here (https://plus.google.com/113882113745075873153/posts/Rjt66GLtnA2) is the explanation for that choice, and I think it's foolish. The Suggested User list is not an adequate replacement for this feed. All it does is showcase high level G+ users, not those lesser known people who are constantly posting great content.

The "What's Hot" list? Please. 90% of what I see there are cat gifs, posts from +Mike Elgan (which, since I follow him, I'm already seeing), and various posts from celebrities that I don't care about. Not useful.

They say that you can still see the people who circled you under the Circles button above. While true, it's useless for doing what the Incoming Stream did. A huge list of names does nothing for me. Do you really expect me to find the time to check the profiles of, at the time of this writing, 829 different people? There simply aren't that many hours in a day. Even if I were to delegate only 5 minutes per person, this task would take me just under 70 hours to complete. I'm not doing that. Would any of you?

In the comments for both +Dave Besbris's original post and +Natalie Villalobos's repost, I've seen people saying that they never used it anyway. Chances are, they didn't do that because they didn't know what it was. I'll admit, this was something that was never really explained very well, and it's only though trial and error did I figure it out. Once I did, I made almost daily use of it.

The solution to this was to perhaps rename the feature, or simply provide a better explanation of what it did...not to remove the feature for those of us who were using it.

I truly feel that Google made the wrong choice here, and I really hope they reverse it. The Incoming Stream was a valuable tool I used to decide who among the people that circled me should be circled back based on the content they posted here, and not having it changes a large part of my Google+ experience.

I spent a wonderful day yesterday photographing Snowy Owls. The Snowy Owl is one of the largest species of owl and in North America is one of the heaviest of the owl species. Young owls, especially males, get whiter as they get older. Females are darker than males, with dusky spotting, and never become totally white. Some elderly males do become completely white, though many retain small flecks of dusky plumage. These magnificent owls sometimes remain year-round in their northern breeding grounds, but they are frequent migrants to Canada, the northern United States, Europe, and Asia. Lemming availability may determine the extent of southern migration, when owls take up summer or even winter residence on open fields, marshes, and beaches.

How to carve out your very own niche on G+
For G+ newbies

I've seen a number of comments by people lamenting that they didn't know about something or they hadn't heard about such-and-such and that it's probably down to the fact that they have very few followers.

So, I thought I'd jot down a few ramblings floating around in the old cerebellum that may be of some help if you are interested in becoming part of a community, not just about follower count.

This is a long post and if this seems to you like I'm stating the bleeding obvious, then you have done well Padawan, you are now a true Jedi Knight and do not need to read any further.

Otherwise, read on....

I am by no means an expert or power user here. I'm just a guy with way too much free time on his hands, stupid economy :(

I had a quick look at the profiles of a couple of these "lamenters" and saw no posts, no profile info, nada! So, I say unto you - D'uh! If you want to become part of the conversation, you have to let other people know at least a little about you. Women need to be a bit more careful here as there are a few nutbags around, but in general a few non-critical details about yourself and the occasional original post about something you care about will go a long way to persuading others to follow you.

While it's not about follower count, you do need at least some in order to gain some traction in your field of interest. You can comment on other peoples posts with intellect and erudition till the end of time. But, they won't reciprocate by following someone who doesn't take the time to fill out their profile.

This is G+ 101!

I started out with 9 followers, most of whom joined because I asked them and then promptly went back to Facebook. Most of my early posts went unread, uncommented & generally unloved. I nearly jacked it in but kept at it in part to the infectious enthusiasm for the platform of +Robert Scoble , in fact it was him who pointed out that the photogs were falling for G+. So, I started to post a few, commented on others and what do you know, my humble pics were being appreciated far better than I ever expected. So, very slowly over time I started to get feedback, the occasional comment and the rest just happened over time.

You're unlikely to be reading this if you're not into photography but, this platform requires patience and perseverance for whatever you're into. There is no magic number but, there is a tipping point when you've made enough contacts to become part of a group, a community of like-minded individuals. That's when the pay-off kicks in.

Do's
1. Fill out your profile as much as you're comfortable with.
2. Load a profile image of yourself if possible but don't leave the default one in place!
3. Post something original, something that's yours. Regularly.
4. Be honest, don't pretend to be an expert on something if you're not. That one is sure to bite you in the ass.
5. Be genuine in your comments on others posts. No one likes a kiss-ass!

Dont's
1. Do not constantly post or reshare animated gifs, everyone hates that guy!!!
2. Keep a limit on the number of posts you put up, be mindful of other peoples streams.
3. Do not try to get the attention of the famous or other power users by constantly including them in posts. You will get cock postblocked, my friend!
4. Don't be rude, condescending, or any variation of dickhead.
5. Do not, do not, do not steal someone's work or try to pass it off as your own!! This one is a biggee. If you want to post or show something made by someone else, make sure you credit the author!

There are many many more do's and dont's. These are just the one's that come to mind. But, you'll pick them up over time. In the early days there were numerous how-to's posted as everyone was figuring this thing out. Try a search if you need more info.

Early Light on Hāmoa - Hāmoa Beach, Hāna, Maui, Hawai'i
"The most South Pacific beach not in the South Pacific" , exclaimed Mark Twain. This golden stretch of island was also favorited (+1ʻd) by Earnest Hemingway, and James Michener. I had the blessing to rejuvenate my soul in this spot during the weekend. I come to this place often, but my goal was to see everything differently this time. We, as photographers, have the luxury of "seeing" in different ways. I have never in my life seen this famous beach photographed as is it shown here. The mood is less tropical and more dramatic -- less of a postcard, and more of a canvas.

Canadian man enters U.S. by showing passport on iPad

TORONTO (AP) – A Canadian man who realized he forgot his passport as he approached the U.S. border found a new way to gain entry — his iPad.
By Victoria Arocho, for USA TODAY

Martin Reisch said Tuesday a slightly annoyed U.S. border officer let him cross into the United States from Quebec after he presented a scanned copy of his passport on his Apple iPad. Reisch was a half hour from the border when he decided to try to gain entry rather than turn back and make a two-hour trek back home to Montreal to fetch his passport.

He told the officer he was heading to the U.S. to drop off Christmas gifts for his friend's kids. He said that true story, the scanned passport and his driver's license helped him get through last week.

He said the officer seemed mildly annoyed when he handed him the iPad.
"I thought I'd at least give it a try," Reisch said. "He took the iPad into the little border hut. He was in there a good five, six minutes. It seemed like an eternity. When he came back he took a good long pause before wishing me a Merry Christmas."

Reisch said the officer made an exception.

Canadians began needing more than a driver's license for identification for U.S. land border crossings in 2009. U.S. Customs and Border Protection says it only accepts a passport, an enhanced driver's license or a Nexus pass from Canadian citizens entering at land crossings. The list doesn't mention facsimiles, like scans and photocopies.

A spokesman for the department did not immediately respond to questions on whether scanned passports are also commonly accepted at U.S. points of entry.
Reisch, 33, said he took a scanned photo of his passport years ago in case it was over lost or stolen while traveling. He said he also successfully used the passport on his iPad to get through Canadian Customs on the way home later that day.
He said he doubts he'd get away with it again and will bring his passport next time. But he hopes border officials will eventually make digital identification an official form of travel document. He noted that many airlines now accept digital boarding passes stored on smartphones.

"I see the future as 100 percent being able to cross with your identity on a digital device — it's just a matter of time," he said.http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/story/2012-01-03/canada-ipad-passport-crossing/52367734/1?csp=34news&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+usatoday-NewsTopStories+%28News+-+Top+Stories%29___Cool
