Margaret Tompkins101,687>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 25,000 FollowersThe photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 25,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Some are fairly new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people but please only one.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!A while back, I had a wonderful discussion about circles with +Robin Griggs Wood and +Charles Lupica .  If you don't know them, then let me introduce you to two of the finest people here on G+!    Charles is a master of monochrome!!  Robin is a master of everything and a mentor to all of us!!  Did you know that she speaks seagull!!   I hope that both Robin and Charles will look you all over and give you a share!  There aren't many quality vetted circles shared on G+.  I'm proud to say that this is one of them!!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2014-02-16 03:26:0247725863164CC G+

Magnus Ericson35,090Now it's been awhile since I posted my very first public circle so here's an update. I have named the circle "Artistic People" Most are photographers who continually share their own pictures of good quality.The only thing you need to do to get into, and stay in the circle is to continue to have me in your circles and share your own great photos without a lot of other bling bling, youtube clip, animated gifs and so on in your stream.I've probably forgotten one or more that should have been in the circle, but I'm neither the first nor the last to do so.Hope you like my "Artistic People Circle" and that you pass it along to your own circles. Please leave a comment of what you think.2013-08-12 11:20:3528531827CC G+

Blair Kunkel5,687ATTENTION - Since my original snowball circle(Share Circle #1) circle grew so fast it reached over 2,000 members!  It has been brought to my attention that each time the circle is shared and added to YOUR circles, you are only able to add under 500 people. SO...to make sure that this circle of awesome people continues to grow, I have divided all 2,000 members into 7 other share circles(so far) and each of those share circles 2-7 are starting out with 400 members each. That will allow each circle to snowball up to 100 more members each.  Once each of those circles reach 500 members, I will create a new share circle...and so on and so on.--------------------------------------------------Welcome to SHARE CIRCLE #5--------------------------------------------------Want to be added to this SNOWBALL CIRCLE and increase the number or your followers?  To be added to this circle you must do these things in this order:1.  You must PLUS the post.2.  You must SHARE the post.3.  You must ADD the circle.(Remember, you can only have 5,000 people in your circles overall so make sure you have the room to add everyone in this circle first)4   And lastly, you must comment below when you have done the three above to let me know.Just want to remind you that in order for me to add you to this circle you MUST share this circle.  I always check the activity and I see who shares it and also +1's it too.

Gailen Mapes26,221Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera A-F - 11 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 500 members.I am now sharing one circle per day, for the reason see:https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/posts/RrPNTzHhQuHAs 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 15th.)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 #handpickedcircles   #sharedcircles #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle2013-04-11 10:58:3937616213CC G+

According to unconfirmed reports that guy who spied on Germany's secret service BND on behalf of NSA is a member of Commando 'Gavrilo Princip'. This group considers itself as supporter of a 'new world order'. For further propaganda see their website.

Just kidding.

What would I do if anybody asked me?
1) Political asylum for Edward Snowden in Germany.
2) Hearing of Snowden before the NSA investigation committee of the Bundestag.
3) Further measures to prevent the establishment of a 'state within the state'. 

And a lot more, but that would be nice for a start.

The next strange event yesterday happened half an hour later. Not only Cologne had its mega event, Düsseldorf has one, too: the big Rheinkirmes, a big fun fair (not only fun fair, like everything in Europe this one has traditions reaching far back into the Middle Ages). This Rheinkirmes also attracts several hundreds of thousands of people per day, and so I wasn't too surprised to see several teenagers in the city train at midnight, eager to end their night on the fun fair area. And it's summer holidays anyway, so why shouldn't they?
Perhaps I'm getting old. When I was sixteen, it was the biggest sign of autonomy to have a bottle of beer in your hand when celebrating something. But these kids yesterday: bottles of hard liquor, two of them with a whole bottle of vodka, respectively? At age 15 or 16?

Two things made me raise an eyebrow, though: why did my train have to take an alternative route due to a few fools who desperately had to enter the rails on Hohenzollern Bridge, thus hampering the whole rail traffic between Cologne and the rest of the world? Of course, the reason was a fireworks which attracted the aforementioned hundreds of thousands of people (hotop). But is the need for fun of a few fools reason enough for redirecting trains, police operations, and stuff? 
I guess that some of them who even might have been arrested afterwards, would have felt as victims of a cruel state power. But then again, I think that nothing has happened to them, because such behavior doesn't have consequences. They probably call it freedom. Perhaps it is, but to me it's lack of consideration, too.

Lesson learned yesterday: cities are no longer the places for living and working. They have transformed into giant event areas, attracting several hundreds of thousands of people. Okay, no suprise so far. But wait.

Who enjoyes reading the news today? The story of MH17 superficially reminds me of the torpedoing of RMS Lusitania in 1915, when German forces fired a non-military ship without warning. But I don't want to burn my mouth about this. Everything's contaminated and will be exploited by all conflict parties, and the only sad truth we definitely know about are many dead people.

St Marien in Bonn Bad-Godesberg (the “Bad” means that this town is a spa, nothing “bad” here at all) built 1862, extended 1894. Design: Vinzenz Statz, one of the most important advocates of Neo-Gothic style in Germany (who also was master builder of Cologne Cathedral). St Marien is another fine neo-gothic church (there must have been much more decorations in the past) with a surprisingly vast space, provided by the massive transept.

Probably this has already been addressed by many and it's already late, but... why does this alleged XKeyScore code (available at http://daserste.ndr.de/panorama/xkeyscorerules100.txt) mention the Tails operating system correctly in line 98 ("The Amnesic Incognito Live System"), a comment line, while it's written wrong in the actual code, line 91: "Amnesiac Incognito Live System"? Note the 2nd "a" in "amnesiac" which is wrong. If this would be used for fetching querys for Tails, it would never match.

When strange things get weird: a thorough analysis of the fragments of alleged XKeyScore code concludes that these files are most likely a (sophosticated) fake. The analysis appaears serious and correct to me. I don't want to regurgitate sensational news from unclear sources. So I'm going to leave indignation mode and find my own opinion based on the data available. Thanks, media, this was a good exercise in becoming mistrustful, again. (This whole game is so big, it's stuff for decades to come, it seems.)

Looking for "Tails" (a secure O/S) and tools like "Tor" (for preserving anonymity when surfing the web) makes you a suspected terrorist. This is not a test: fragments of XKeyScore config files leave no doubt about this, as a German report reveals.

I'm using Tor and other security tools (Wireshark, uh-oh; Truecrypt, KeePass, 1Password, sometimes I'm even encrypting my e-mails, holy cow!) Sometimes I have to, because it's my job. And of course I care about my privacy, how couldn't I?

Do I now have to be terrified of my next stay in the US due to unpleasant interviews in close offices? What's the point of all this but to spread fear, uncertainty and doubt?

I cannot eat as much as I would like to vomit.

Anything more? No, no interviews on the World Cup. My Klout score increased: aha. That gruesome storm in my region three weeks ago: others certainly have reported on that. The number of artists in Düsseldorf: has increased by one.

"What's reality" asks the local issue of Scientific American. I don't know the answer, really. It's subjective.

"Art is liberating us from data terror" said an article on a German news portal some weeks ago. It was discussing an art exhibition at Düsseldorf's Kunsthalle, and after reading it I didn't know what "data terror" actually was. Neither did the author of that article, I guess. Freedom of mind and senses would come through art. Information isn't everything, more important is what you can view and think up beyond it. Information is just the seed vessel of the new.

Whew. (See here for further information. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Information)

We're living in strange times. Surveillance everywhere, sometimes even with our friendly assistance in the form of loyalty cards and discount tickets, and still the biggest network of them all manages to hide a psychologial field trial from the public. I would be really pissed if I was relying on facebook and the posts of my people there.

Apart from that, what was happening there was the opposite of science. There's a Code of Ethics (http://www.cop.es/efppa/metacode.htm) by the European Federation of Professional Psychologists Associations that tells how it's done. See position 3.1.3: informed consent.

Thanks too to all these nice people mentioning my name for #SacredSunday! But I'm no longer curating this theme. Curating for a year has been a mad time, but it also was a bit much at the end of that year. So I'm taking it a bit slower now, that leaves me time for a few other things. Traveling with my wife and taking photos, for example.

Strasbourg Cathedral, by the way.

I wonder how this effekt would look like if the stones of Cologne Cathedral would have their original colour of sand stone (instead of the almost black tone they have acquired in the last century). Something like Notre Dame in Paris. But having the same bright facade here would be an impossible dream, wouldn't it?

When the light is good, the stones of Cologne Cathedral start shining. I never get tired of looking at it. #sacredsunday

This impressive window of Cologne's Minoritenkirche can only be captured properly from outside. Inside it's mostly covered by the organ. 

Taken on APX 100, developed with Tetenal ultrafin, beefed up a bit with Silver Efex 2. For #SacredSunday

This is one of the windows by Jan Thorn Prikker (1868-1932) in St George church, Cologne. One of my first film shots in a church. Much room for improvement.

If you're living in Europe, especially in the EU, you probably should buy what you need as quick as you can. When politicians start to dispossess depositors, like they're going to do in Cyprus, you know that nothing is as safe as it seemed to be this far. Sure, black money owners will be glad to escape unscathed widely, but to soak these people with a normal savings account is undoubtly a breach of taboo. And again it's the many banks that are going to be saved, and none of their shareholders will have to pay.
This will be a restless weekend for Cyprus (and once again, for Greece, too). Their holiday tomorrow is the orthodox equivalent to Ash Wednesday, as I've learned today. How fitting. Guess what happens next.

The last, this, and the following shots were taken on Kodak APX 100 film. I finally developed them last week, using a new developer, Tetenal ultrafin, and I'm quite happy with the results. Compared with my old chemicals the new photos are much more rich in detail.

So what can we do with this day at the end of this neverending winter?

Okay, I won't complain about this winter any longer. See what -59°C (-74.2°F), no heat, and bad windows can do to your home.

A witty interview with IEEE and ACM fellow Moshe Vardi on the job market of 2045, and what kind of future we will have to expect. Fortunately he doesn't go as far as to give us an overly optimistic or pessimistic prediction. I'm, however, not fully satisfied: the last two decades brought us the working poor. Germany's wealth is partially based on a low-pay sector that doesn't need expensive innovations in AI and robotics. No doubt, there will be new and exciting technology in the next decades, but in my opinion it will lead to cheap labour and neither to increasing wealth for the masses nor to ample spare time for the workers.

Taken three months ago (in Berlin), this also could be a shot from today. The fresh snow on the trees is pretty and all that, but I really didn't ask for it.

The saddest daffodil, spotted this morning. 17°C last week, -2°C today: not my kind of spring.

Just one more thing: the former Gerling buildings, a complex of insurance office buildings has turned into a big construction site. Will be interesting to observe if the high hopes of the investor will become reality: turning office buildings into costly flats for wealthy people.

My favourite shot of the whole tour: the guy far above us all seems to be happy about his successful ascent for more than hundred years.

While the hustle and bustle is taking place elsewhere, these strollers are enjoying the day among themselves.

The entrance to Cologne's Mediapark, a large area formerly owned by Deutsche Bahn, then redesigned for everything Media. A lot of stories could be told here, but let's say that now you can find here everything but media (apart from a cinema complex).

A much more subtle monument which can be easily overlooked reminds of seven people who felt victim to the Gestapo. While Cologne's farmer are celebrated for centuries, this monument will fall into oblivion one day.

The peasantry is of special importance for the city of Cologne in the Middle Ages. At one of Cologne's old city gates you can see this inscription below a sculpture of the boor: Halt fass do Kölscher Boor. Bliev beim Rich et fall sös ov sor. (Hold on, farmer of Cologne! Stay with the Reich, be it sweet or sour.)

And on we go with our little early spring tour in Cologne. Daffodils and crocuses in the parks don't bloom yet, but at least some stores offer the first heralds of spring.

Fascinating images about Hongkong's human battery hens and the people living there. Insights into flats of the size of a phone booth, home for people founding the wealth of one of the richest cities of the world. The website is rather slow, but worth the wait.

Dark and bleak streets come back to colours and life with a little bit of sunlight: the effect is always breathtaking. And a relief.

The trees are leafless still, and there are no flowers apart from a few snowdrops, but a bit of sunlight and the colours are coming back immediately. That felt really great.
