Gailen Mapes0Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  C-E - 24 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 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 +2014-04-24 10:21:54178001CC G+

Gorka Ortiz0           (¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.- JOIN THE FUN & SHARE -.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯)==WELCOME TO REALEASE 29 OF "THE GATHERING CIRCLE"== *THANK YOU GUYS* for all your plusses & shares, much appreciated!Would you like to be in the next one and be part of the FUN? Just follow these simple steps: 1.- Plus the post.2.- Share the post publicly in your own stream.3.- Please leave a comment so I am fully aware of your participation.4.- Please follow me (if you haven't reached the 5000 limit already!)PLEASE READ:1.- I am promoting and sharing this circle in my stream so, please do the same from your side.2.- In order to keep "The Gathering Circle" as "clean" as possible from spammers, agressive business pages or profiles who don't share anything else but spam, ads or just circles please be aware that I will directly remove and block anybody asking for inclusion and meeting any of these cases:A) Your profile mostly has circles. I'd like to include in my circles people who, at least have something to say or post, I can't understand why a profile just post circles and nothing else, not a single picture, opinion or whatever, please say something, I'd like to see there's a person behind the profile.B) Your page or profile mostly has spam links to some kind of business where they you lend money or stuff like that.C) Your page or profile mostly doesn't have anything else but spam, ads or links to commercial sites.People creating and selling their own stuff like their own Porcelain or Ceramic creations will still perfectly fit in the circle, I like promotingartists creating their own stuff, that is what we photographers also do anyway. I just want to keep away the spammers who flood our streams with lots of annoying ads and we all know how these profiles look like. ;-)Thank you very much indeed for your friendship and cooperation ;-)#gatheringcircle   #thegatheringcircle         #circleshare       #circlesharing         #circleoftheday    #handpicked         #sharedcircles         #sharedcircle       #sharedpubliccircles     #fullcircleshare         #addmetoyourcircles     #circleoftheday     #bestsharedcircle         #thebestcirclesongoogle     #thebestcircle      #circles         2014-04-23 05:56:02460127113148CC G+

Just follow these simple steps: 1.- Plus the post.2.- Share the post publicly in your own stream.3.- Please leave a comment so I am fully aware of your participation.4.- Please follow me (if you haven't reached the 5000 limit already!)PLEASE READ:1.- I am promoting and sharing this circle in my stream so, please do the same from your side.2.- In order to keep "The Gathering Circle" as "clean" as possible from spammers, agressive business pages or profiles who don't share anything else but spam, ads or just circles please be aware that I will directly remove and block anybody asking for inclusion and meeting any of these cases:A) Your profile mostly has circles. I'd like to include in my circles people who, at least have something to say or post, I can't understand why a profile just post circles and nothing else, not a single picture, opinion or whatever, please say something, I'd like to see there's a person behind the profile.B) Your page or profile mostly has spam links to some kind of business where they you lend money or stuff like that.C) Your page or profile mostly doesn't have anything else but spam, ads or links to commercial sites.People creating and selling their own stuff like their own Porcelain or Ceramic creations will still perfectly fit in the circle, I like promotingartists creating their own stuff, that is what we photographers also do anyway. I just want to keep away the spammers who flood our streams with lots of annoying ads and we all know how these profiles look like. ;-)Thank you very much indeed for your friendship and cooperation ;-)#gatheringcircle   #thegatheringcircle         #circleshare       #circlesharing         #circleoftheday   #handpicked         #sharedcircles         #sharedcircle       #sharedpubliccircles     #fullcircleshare         #addmetoyourcircles     #circleoftheday     #bestsharedcircle         #thebestcirclesongoogle     #thebestcircle     #circles         2014-04-14 12:55:38402171148179CC 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 +Gailen Mapes2014-04-08 10:52:561412210CC G+

Easter Service Panorama

This is a 4 shot handheld panorama of the "late" Easter service at Arlington Hills United Methodist Church.  Got to love a "packed house."  :-D  We were in the midst of three infant baptisms as this picture was taken.

Happy Easter

I recently explained the Easter story to a foreign exchange student.  All the way from Jacob and Joseph through Passover and Moses to the passion of Jesus.  Nope, no bunnies or eggs, except at the end I mentioned that old European springtime fertility symbols have been added - just because they are fun.

Nevertheless, I think I should hunt under my trees for some colored eggs this morning.  :-D

Have a blessed Easter everyone, and for my Eastern Orthodox friends - hey, we finally match up!

It Isn't Surprising...
that we had snow last night, after all in one year or another, Minnesota has had snow in every month except July.  What is kind of fun is that just as the snow was ending we had two white tail deer walk across my driveway.  If I hadn't been sleeping I would have seen them from my bedroom window - but I was, so I didn't...  :-D

40 Years in the Making...

One day, back about 1973 or so I took 3 photos of culverts that had been removed at Battle Creek Regional Park in St. Paul, MN.  (I used the 3 individual pictures for a while as my "top photo" on G+ - back when you could use 5 photos in a row.)  I ran across them again yesterday and decided it was time to stitch them together to complete my 40 year "vision."

Here they are!  (Tri-X Pan film, Nikon F, 50mm/f2.0 lens.)

I believe I originally shot this on Kodachrome 25 back in the '70s.  Can't find the slide and had to scan an old print.

It's That Time of the Year

No, not time to eat leaves, but rather gather them up and make a nest for squirrel babies - coming soon!

(If you check the photo data, you will see that I shot this hand held at 300mm and 1/20th of a second.  That says a lot about how really good the Nikon VR technology is and how stupid the photographer can be some times...)

Angel on the Roof

This is a companion shot to the Cathedral of St. Paul photo I took yesterday.  This angel stands on the roof of an apse on the west end of the building - beyond the altar if you are entering the front door on the east.  More information on this beautiful building at:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cathedral_of_Saint_Paul,_National_Shrine_of_the_Apostle_Paul

Being that today is "income tax day" in the USofA, I figured an angel to watch over us might be appropriate.  :-D

St. Paul's Cathedral, St. Paul, MN

D800E "official inaugural picture."  I thought I should start practicing up on pictures of big imposing buildings for my trip to Europe this summer.  After all, that's what I bought this camera for!  Lens used was a 1970's vintage 24mm/f2.8 AI Nikkor.  (It was purchased before AI, but later converted.)

The history of this building is here:  https://www.cathedralsaintpaul.org/history

This photo was taken from the street-side sidewalk in front of the building, you don't realize how high the hill is till you see it from this angle - or try to walk up it!  In addition, the wind was blowing - the weather service says it was gusting to 24 MPH but with the hill-top effect I know it was stronger up here.  I took some other pictures but I was disappointed in them - the wind shook the camera during theexposu... more »

Battle Creek in Spring

Even after all of the snow we had all winter the rivers and creeks aren't flooding because the melt was so gradual.  There is still snow "up north" and some flakes in the forecast later this week but the grass around here is starting to green up.  This is a good thing...  :-D

Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  R - 10 of 30

Note: 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.
