Justin Hill22,601114 HDR Photographers :- Here's my second circle share for the weekend. I have two circles for photographers and this is my second which concentrates on those that indulge in HDR photography. Some in this circle use the technique all the time and others only once in a while. Each and every one of them is a great photographer in their own right which is why I added them and created this circle carefully over time. You won't see much overblown HDR here, they are all very good at what they do and their images prove it. Once again this circle was put together by me and all within it were hand picked due to my likes and preferences. If I have left you out then I am sorry but I simply cannot put everyone I see in a circle so i have been deliberately selective.  Please feel free to add them all to your own circles or pick your way through and select just a few. By all means share if you so wish. Enjoy...2013-10-13 20:19:15114202

Thomas Hawk6,146,1772500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OC*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-03 18:49:364857231117

I have a serious question for everyone.

While I tend to mess around with different styles most of my photos end up being very vibrant while I know that simple and subdued can also make a piece attractive. Here are two versions of the same photo which actually was the most popular post on Google+ the night of the solar eclipse for a while with over 1000 comments. 

Which of these two versions of the solar eclipse sunset do you find most visually appealing? Which would you be more likely to hang on the wall? And for what reasons?

Your input is greatly appreciated!

New Lightning Photo for the 30% off September Weekend Sale!

Store: http://emmett.smugmug.com/
Coupon Code: SEPT30PCT

I just got this photo edited before the second computer crash of 2014. After I was able to bring out some detail and color I noticed it looks quite a bit like a walking stick figure. Think of it as sort of a lightning Godzilla perhaps 

Remember the 30% off sale runs through today (Sunday 9/21). For full details visit the original post: https://plus.google.com/118146622799388835070/posts/g6g6n6AfVL3

Help Needed! / Get Rewarded with discounts

Okay, I've worked so long on this I'm delirious but to sum it up I finally have my new photography storefront page up and running. Pretty much I'm asking people to pick out their favorite photos, then I remaster (if needed) the top picks and put them for sale through Columbus Day for 50% off. It gives me a way to judge what types of my photography people are interested in and people get rewarded with half off their favorite photos. I also could use followers since I believe I'm my only follower right now so please share far and wide and pick your favorites too! Read the page post for details. Thanks!

Pick Your Favorites! / Get Rewarded
Store URL: http://emmett.smugmug.com

I've gone through my stockpile of photography and chosen my favorites since 2004. The main reason I'm posting these is to get an idea of the most popular categories and find out what prints my customers are most likely to buy.

 As a reward I will put the top picks totalled from the social networks I'm sharing this with on sale for half off through Monday (Columbus Day). The sale includes anything from a 4x6 luster print to a 40x60 canvas wrap or metal print. - Since I do remaster almost every photo I upload you should expect to see between 5 and 10 photos end up in the sale gallery. 

To vote for a photo, just view each gallery which is posted as a separate sheet of thumbnails in this album and leave a comment with the image name/names you are voting for in that category. To let me know your favorite category/categories all you need to do is leave a comment on the album itself (this post). One thing I need some help on is categorizing my "Abstract/Modern/Other" set, those are the closest terms I can come up with to describe them but I feel there are better descriptions.

Later tonight (roughly midnight U.S. Central time) I'll check the results and should have the photos in the sale gallery with a half off promo code available which I will post as a comment on this album. Remember I'm also posting this on my Facebook page and this page is brand new and I could use some followers so any promotion of this page/post will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your help!

New Photos Coming Soon! / Need Input

After days of searching I've found 726 new sellable photos in my archive from the past 9 years (imagine if I hadn't virtually stopped taking photos when my back went bad). I've narrowed it down to the best 543.

I remaster all photos before I put them up for sale because the artist in me want's my product to be of the highest quality so don't expect to see them for sale all at once. I do however want to gather some public opinion on which of my photos they like best so I'm not wasting time uploading just photos that appeal to me since I need to pay the bills in a serious way. Most are of high enough quality for a 40x60 print or larger (if panoramic) so they are suitable for any office, clinics, lawyers et. so if you have any leads please let me know as I really want to get things kick started.

I also have a brand new model shoot coming up which tells a controversial story for those interested.

If I have the energy I'm going to put together sample sheets in each category and post them to my new G+ Page sometime in the mid morning (Assuming I get it complete enough to put out there).

Stay on the lookout. Any input is very helpful!

For some reason they won't let me set my URL to +EmmettLollisPhotography even though it's my verified places and brand name. - Any suggestions other than sending yet another report to Google?

Thanks!

Why We Shouldn't Prevent Air Travel to the U.S. from Ebola Infected Countries

I just heard Ebola expert Donald Trump say that to contain Ebola we should prevent air travel from Ebola infected areas. I've also heard this a great deal from the media and posts on Facebook. On the surface that sounds like a good idea but when you think about it, that decision would undermine the best safety measures we have in place.

Imagine you just traveled to an infected area, you feel fine and want to come home so you don't lose your job, miss your family, are running low on money to stay et. What do you do? You travel to an area where air travel is permitted to make your trip home. If you happen to be infected, not only did you just bring Ebola to the U.S. but you evaded the screening process in place for people traveling from infected regions. This would create a much higher public... more »

This would create a much higher public safety risk and greatly increase the chances of an outbreak here on U.S. soil.

Why capitalism is responsible for the lack of a cure of most major diseases and how we can fix it.

Capitalism in and of itself isn't a bad idea but it could certainly use some modifications. Specifically when it concerns medical patents. Medical corporations get a 20 year patent on new drugs/vaccines. Of course to be sold they have to prove the effectiveness of said medication or vaccine. Vaccines typically cost a lot more to develop than a treatment medication which is the first knockdown on profitability. If the average survival rate for someone with a particular type of disease is 18 years it will take 18 years before they can start making money on it, giving them a whole 2 years of explicit profit, thusly investors are going to thumb their nose at it.

Capitalism in and of itself isn't a bad idea but it could certainly use some modifications. Specifically when it concerns medical patents. Medical corporations get a 20 year patent on new drugs/vaccines. Of course to be sold they have to prove the effectiveness of said medication or vaccine. Vaccines typically cost a lot more to develop than a treatment medication which is the first knockdown on profitability. If the average survival rate for someone with a particular type of disease is 18 years it will take 18 years before they can start making money on it, giving them a whole 2 years of explicit profit, thusly investors are going to thumb their nose at it.

There are three ways I know to go about fixing the issue. The first and easiest to implement would be for the government to set up a system to extend the patent life for vaccines which require longer trials. Not by the entire trial period because that would encourage foot dragging to extend profits. Somewhere between 50% to 75% sounds like a fair start to me.

The second option would leave the patent time alone and create a set aside fund to give the pharmaceutical who develops a successful vaccine a healthy bonus to make up for lost revenue due to the limited patent profit time. This of course would be less popular with citizens who are against taxes of any kind, even if it means they might get more years to spend with a dear loved one, parent, or spouse. Of course there is always the risk of congress voting to dip into those funds since they can do it quietly without the voters noticing.

I'm way too tired to get into the third option right now but I may post it in the comments later on today if I get the time.

What are your thoughts?

Searching for poor mans marketing advice

Greetings fellow plussers,

I have two sites setup for selling my photography, the first is http://emmett.smugmug.com and the 2nd is http://etsy.me/EverythingEmmett - I did the Etsy store first because it's a cheap option, they order, then I have the print shipped to them. SmugMug is much more photo centric and has tons of options + framing but costs $35 per month. Right now I'm somewhere around breaking even. I have close to 1k followers on the FB page, 3,300+ on my personal profile, and 42k followers on my G+ profile, yet I have 3-4 day sales with no purchases. I was getting sales when I first started but I think they were my sales base and can't afford to keep buying.

If anyone can suggest resources I could get free promotion through please let me know, I don't have the money to pre-print to sell in local... more »

Also critique on my photos, pricing et on my 2 sites would be appreciated. I know I need to upload a lot more photos but I remaster each one that I add which takes a lot of time and for SmugMug I have to crop to their ratios. Thanks!

Large Print Sample Finally Available for View, Plus the September Weekend Sale ends tonight at Midnight

It was good to finally be able to get a special order print in my own hands to deliver to a customer. It's a going away dedication to her father who was an engineer / hobby photographer through his life. When I say hobby, from my understanding he has more gear than most pros do so I wouldn't call him an amateur by any means.

I've been wanting to show that the prints I offer aren't some cheap type print you might order from the corner drug store that fade in a few years. These prints are built to last for over a century (how long? I don't think anyone really knows how long yet).

ARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!

I had my old Wacom Bamboo tablet (1st generation) go bad on me a couple months ago right when I needed it to edit a photo which required some detail work. The closest equivalent I could find anywhere near my price range was a Bamboo Pen (2nd generation) for about $20 including shipping. I plugged it in and everything was working great, then I started having OS problems a couple weeks ago and sometime between then and the past few days both the pen and the pen holder vanished.

Now I was keeping a close eye on it because I've knocked the old pen behind the desk a billion times so I'm fairly certain I put it aside somewhere so it wouldn't get lost.

Well as my ADD would have it, the 3 seconds I spent deciding where to put it have emptied from my brain, I thought there was a good chance it did fall so I ended up getting on my hands... more »

Well as my ADD would have it, the 3 seconds I spent deciding where to put it have emptied from my brain, I thought there was a good chance it did fall so I ended up getting on my hands and knees to look under the dresser, then moved the desk and even checked under the bed. No luck.

I checked all the boxes I put my extra computer components in that would have been accessible under the gigantic pile which I like to call computer supplies and Dremel tools. I checked into it and I can get a pen for the tablet but of course they cost $35 and I can't find any used. I went so far as to try to get the old pen (old style had an eraser feature that I never used), I took the whole thing apart and super cleaned it, then put it back together only to find out they run on separate frequencies!

Now I can't sleep because I'm still obsessed with finding the freaking pen! Can anyone identify with me?

Geek out moment! - In case you missed it NASA is still working on a functional warp drive :)

I know the report is several months old but I've been following the Alcubierre drive concept for many years. It literally works by warping space into a warp bubble around the craft by contracting the space in front of the craft which is pushed forward by the expanded space behind it. 

At one point they gave up by determining they couldn't viably generate enough negative energy to propel the craft until another scientist realized that changing the design from a warp bubble to warp rings would significantly reduce the needed negative energy, while the theory hasn't been proven yet, it does work well with general relativity. This would make a craft that could travel at faster than 2 light years per week, not too shabby given there are plenty of stars to explore within... more »

I have a serious question for everyone.

While I tend to mess around with different styles most of my photos end up being very vibrant while I know that simple and subdued can also make a piece attractive. Here are two versions of the same photo which actually was the most popular post on Google+ the night of the solar eclipse for a while with over 1000 comments. 

Which of these two versions of the solar eclipse sunset do you find most visually appealing? Which would you be more likely to hang on the wall? And for what reasons?

Your input is greatly appreciated!

Computer Trouble Update

My OS drive is still dying a slow death. I tried switching to another SATA port on the motherboard and the drive got into eternal click mode. It makes me wonder if the entire problem could be my motherboard but I don't have a way of testing it without spending money.

There could also be an issue with the power supply though the only thing off is the 12v rail shows about 12.5v.

Then again, given that Windows "repaired" itself by forcing me to boot to Windows 7 and hiding the Windows 8 install may have messed with my HD drivers. (I managed to find BCDBOOT to get back to Win8).

That means reinstalling EVERYTHING as well, it seems any path I take is going to take days. I wish I had money to throw at it to buy a replacement Motherboard, new hard drive and new copy of Windows 8. Argh!

Computer Troubles

I know this is a long post but I'm including last weeks trouble since I believe it may be very relevant to my current issues.

The Start of it All
The Saturday during Labor Day Weekend I came home to spend some time with my computer, pet it, love on it, have a few chats and maybe even do some Photoshop work and spend serious time getting my business going better. I had four new photos to post and a big Labor Day weekend sale I'd been touting for a week. Only there was a slight issue. It would power on just fine but the BIOS would never post, not even a beep even though the computer powered on fine which was to say the least very frustrating. I ended up re-seating the SATA and power connectors as this had been an issue before but it was still a no go.

I had four new photos to post and a big Labor Day weekend sale I'd been touting for a week. Only there was a slight issue. It would power on just fine but the BIOS would never post, not even a beep even though the computer powered on fine which was to say the least very frustrating. I ended up re-seating the SATA and power connectors as this had been an issue before but it was still a no go.

I was extremely frustrated since virtually the same thing had just happened to it a couple months ago and I ended up with a dead hard drive. It took me a day or two to get the courage to face it again. The solution ended up being to clear the CMOS to default which reverted back to the original version (which doesn't work with Windows 8). I have Windows 8 installed on my primary drive and still have an old copy of Win7 on my secondary. Of course I got the boot sequence wrong in BIOS so it loaded Win7 which was okay since I needed the internet to download the newest BIOS version to USB anyway.

After I had flashed the BIOS and had the Win8 as the first boot drive again the OS assumed something was wrong and took me into one of the repair tools which takes forever to load so I stepped out for a smoke assuming I would be prompted for an action to take when I returned. Instead Windows 8 had fixed itself by making Win7 the only bootable drive, even overriding the BIOS settings. I finally found the BCDBOOT command which I used to make Win8 visible again and was able to log in. Things appeared to be okay for a while, this is where we get to the:

Current issues:
I decided to get back to work on editing and adding new photos to my online stores. It worked okay for a few minutes but when I selected "save as" in Photoshop after my edits I got the blue screen of death which I've never experienced in Win8 before, apparently it's now named "Bug Check" instead of BSOD but it's only up for 3 to 5 seconds, I was getting at least 2 different errors but the most common was code 122 which according to Microsoft is:

The WHEA_INTERNAL_ERROR bug check has a value of 0x00000122. This bug check indicates that an internal error in the Windows Hardware Error Architecture (WHEA) has occurred. Errors can result from a bug in the implementation of a platform-specific hardware error driver (PSHED) plug-in supplied by a vendor, the firmware implementation of error records, or the firmware implementation of error injection.

The problem wasn't just when saving in Photoshop but also happened as I was writing a post in Facebook or had left the system idle. Given that ScanDisk has been returning errors which I clean very frequently and the fact that when the issue first happened it sounded like my hard drive was powering off/on/off/on/off/on about once per second I'm leaning a bit toward a hard drive failure in progress.

What I desperately need to do
My copy of Windows 8 is legitimate but it's running under a one time use only key which means I won't be able to do a fresh install if I lose everything. A friend gave me her "My Book Live" backup external network drive which I was going to use at first but it's purpose is to backup my RAW and edited photos along with websites and graphics I've designed et and even at 1TB it probably won't hold all of that.

Fortunately I have enough space on my 3TB drive to do the full Win8 image backup which apparently wants to image everything on my first two drives (perhaps since Win8 is on C and Win7 is on D). The bad news is that every time I attempt to image the drives a new corruption error pops up on my broken drive which stops the entire process.

So far I'm thinking that the paging files and browsers are the main programs which would be writing/reading my OS drive so I've disabled the paging file on C and am about to give it another try, though I don't have a lot of confidence at this point.

Does anyone out there have some input? It would be appreciated! Thanks!

New Print Available - Destination Unknown

SmugMug direct link: http://emmett.smugmug.com/Downtown-Tulsa/i-KpfTV6B

I was finally able to get back to posting photos last night. I was ready to go with three of them but noticed some enhancements needed to be made to the others and due to issues with my main OS drive I've had to divert my attention but I'm glad to have a new offering. I also wanted to note that you shouldn't be frightened off by prices on Canvas Wraps, Thin Wraps and Brushed Metal photos. These are all products which require no frame at all which saves enough money to make these other products much more attractive both metaphorically and literally.

So I decide to upload some photos to my stores tonight, found that one needed to be fixed before making it available and as Murphey's law would have it my computer kept locking up as I was using Photoshop/Bridge so I've spent the past 4 hours or so going through error messages in the Administrator event logs to attempt to clean up everything that got messed up when I had to reset the BIOS in order to get the PC to boot the other day.

Our Newly Mapped Galactic Home!

Apparently the Milky Way galaxy is a very small part on the outer edge of a supercluster of galaxies which has been mapped by observing the movement of over 8,000 neighboring galaxies for many years to create a 3 dimensional image of our galaxy's home which has been named Laniakea.

Prepare to feel very small and insignificant as well as amazed by the utter vastness of our universe.

Scintillating Scotoma

This happens to me from once every 2 years to 2-3 times a year and it's going on right now. It started as a very small part in the center of my eye making it very hard to read roughly half an hour ago. (Update: while writing this it seems to have lasted a total of 35 minutes) At this point it's spread wide and moved up and right quite a bit. Apparently it's a form of optical migraine. 

The version I see looks very similar to a kaleidoscope except more of less sticks instead of triangles. I've picked out red, blue and yellow and it forms in an expanding crescent shape, I just found an article with examples, at the top, C, the 3rd illustration in the photo is very close to mine except mine would be rotated 90 degrees to the right along with a lot more of the pattern.

Anyone else get these?

Labor Day Update

I am still preparing for the upcoming Labor Day Weekend sale. Final details haven't been ironed out yet but I'm looking to try something different this time to break the standard X% off everything type of sale. I also want to include those who may have this thing called a "life" which I keep hearing people talk about so I'm looking to extend the sale into a cut off time in the afternoon on Tuesday. Of course I am working to add more photos to the SmugMug account. In fact there will likely be photos added during the course of the holiday as well. Be sure to check back with this page tomorrow when I get the details ironed out!

Stop Police Misconduct!

I know the majority of officers on the street are upstanding and moral people but it only takes a few rotten apples to spoil the batch which breeds citizen hatred against all officers including those who are doing their job right.

Misconduct and corruption have ran rampant among not just larger city PD's but also among smaller towns. Things are getting out of hand and something needs to be done. There needs to be a task force watching over each PD (beginning with the ones who have the most complaints) to infiltrate and bust those who are corrupt or display harmful attitudes.

In my opinion the low pay rates offered to recruits is a major reason there are so many officers on duty who are emotionally unstable, racist or don't care to bond with the community. Getting rid of bad officers and replacing them with good ones won't only save... more »

DOCTOR WHO - Series 8 Opening Credits - Confirmed

The video below is the new opening credit sequence for Series 8 of Doctor Who... and it's not.  This is what has inspired the new title sequence.

This is the video that was created by a fan and it seems Moffat liked it and commissioned it as the new opening sequence of Peter Capaldi's inaugural season as The Doctor.  It is quite unlike every opening sequence before it in the last 50 years but Moffat has confirmed this is it. 

Word is that this is VERY, VERY close to what the final version is and the fine folks at +Doctor Who TV lay out the details for us.  

http://www.doctorwhotv.co.uk/the-series-8-title-sequence-65250.htm

It's only a week to wait... only a week till we can start with the running and the monsters and some speculation will be ending... and much will just begin... 

[UPDATE] My friend +Pierce Arner Pointed me to handicam footage of the real opening sequence someone shot at one of the premieres. If you like you can see it, if not it's only a week away...
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2335qx_generique-de-la-saison-8-de-doctor-who_tv  ]

Check it out and be sure and check out Doctor Who TV for more details about what this is all about.

Rattlesnake Found in Case of Great Value Water from Walmart

Found this story via Nancy Thomas, this version has video that includes an interview with the woman who purchased the case of water which had the rattlesnake in it. Quite a few people believe this was a hoax story. I know a little bit about reading when a person is lying but I'm no expert so can't say one way or the other. What do you think? Truth or hoax?

Store: http://emmett.smugmug.com/
Use coupon code GRANDOPENING to save 40% off your total purchase today! Sale lasts through Sunday 8/3/2014.

I started paying for my +SmugMug store back in February with every intention of having it up and running within a week. I ended up going through a lot of family drama and stress in that time (it's not easy being a caretaker for a parent with verbally abusive tendencies), I can be fairly stubborn but eventually I figured out I couldn't handle fixing my issues on my own so I accepted help from someone who took me in for 24 days to get me away from the stress and help get me on a normal schedule along with ways to cope with family.

Thanks to her I've finally climbed what seemed like a mountain to get my SmugMug Store up and running.

I've taken the time to remaster each photo I've put up for sale because if I'm going to do it, I'm going to do it right! I was amazed at the results I was able to achieve having a little more experience under my belt and newer tools to play with. (Having a clear head doesn't hurt either) Many of these photos have shown a lot more detail than the original edits to the point of me being stunned by the improvement.

This gallery contains the photos which I currently have for sale along with direct links to their high res versions on the SmugMug site, and I will continue to add photos as I have the time to edit them.

Unfortunately one thing I've learned is that along with attempting to keep a regular schedule I've had issues which are very similar to chronic fatigue or possibly narcolepsy. I even nodded off while driving twice in broad daylight which has never happened to me before. On most days I've only been able to get about 2 hours of work in which is why things have still been going fairly slow. I see my doctor about that later today and hopefully he can find a way to help me out.

Well, that was quite a long post filled with TMI to introduce my new SmugMug store. Remember the URL is http://emmett.smugmug.com and the 40% discount coupon code is "GRANDOPENING"!

Since my marketing budget is virtually nothing any re-share or referral to my store would be a tremendous help. Thanks so much!

I've known this myth was a sham for years but I still hear people mention it all the time. Just imagine how much more common knowledge is myth.

The 10% myth proved that a compelling story is a terrific way to propagate bad information. Perhaps it's more accurate to say that it also proves that we use only 10% of our critical faculties when listening to cool facts ... -- Adam (via Gizmodo)

Back from my vacation away from taking care of mom

I'm back home taking care of my mom again after having taking a very wonderful vacation that gave me a chance to focus on myself thanks to a completely selfless human being who took the time to help me and guide me to truly finding myself again.

Years ago I was seeing a professional psychologist when I was going through a low point in my life shortly followed by my father's death on top of that. But the professional help and gigantic doses of anti-depressants didn't come close to the help I got from my truly one of a kind friend whom I could bear my soul to with complete trust.
Having my life evaluated by an honest 3rd party who was able to see what I've been going through in my life situation, along with providing truly constructive criticism of my own faults was extremely enlightening. To sum up my faults,... more »

Having my life evaluated by an honest 3rd party who was able to see what I've been going through in my life situation, along with providing truly constructive criticism of my own faults was extremely enlightening. To sum up my faults, I had a tendency to choose the path of least resistance, I was too critical of my art, I was lazy from lack of motivation and avoided confrontation to the point that I gave up on standing up for myself. Living as a servant to everyone but myself really wasn't watering my happiness garden
Now I've not only found myself but I've been upgraded with the knowledge, clarity and confidence that I needed to find my path in life. I also know that I am free to alter my path as it grows if it leads to a happier future. There is no doubt that it will require a lot of work, but it will be worth every bit of that work to achieve my happiness, where ever that happiness may be found.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart +RedHeaded Julie, you've not only saved my life/given me hope for a happy future, but you've shown me that honest communication and trust are two of the most important things in the world!

Colorful Sunset

I spent an hour re-editing this photo to keep the amazing color while adjusting it to make for a great print that will do a good job for any room/office that you want to brighten the mood in. As with the rest of my prints its available as the standard pebble texture fine art paper, gallery wrapped canvas or if you really want to bring the photo to life you can choose a metal print.

SmugMug Store Coming Online Slowly But Surely

The larger photos are cheaper per square inch than the smaller ones. I am offering fine art luster, canvas gallery wraps and even metal prints. I'm hoping to have enough available in the shop to have a grand opening by the end of the week. Keep an eye out.

However I've decided to use the skills and tools I've gained since then on every photo I upload to make sure it's the absolute best quality possible and in  this case it went from being a cool shot to a wow shot.

Please Sign to Keep Corporations from Having Unlimited Power

It's really refreshing to see that we finally have someone running for office in Oklahoma that actually values the people of our state over the money from corporations. Inhofe has spent so much time in office that he has become a career politician that values his contributions over the best interest of the people. 

Either way red, blue or independent I think we can all agree on this petition. Each individual voter should have the power over the vote, not corporations who may not have our best interest at heart. So many seem to lose their soul in order to make a few extra dollars.

When he showed them the results which showed lead, including leaded gasoline was causing major contamination and serious health issues with the world's population they offered him a high paying job in a completely unrelated field to silence him and hired a scientist they could pay off to give the results they wanted. This is why corporations should not have unlimited power to influence congress.

The button shows the number of followers you have directly in a small button. You can add this button to your website, like the +1-Button of Google or the Like-Button of Facebook.






You can add this button directly in your website. For more information about the CircleCount Buttons and the description how to add them to another page click here.
