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.

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+

Gene Bowker66,344The   #Alphabetcircles  Gene's Active Photographers on G+ circle.Part Five: First Name R-Z (the final set)Meet 490 more ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names between R and Z.Tomorrow is going to be a busy day at work, so I decided to go ahead and shoot this off tonight.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.My Selection Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+ (usually within 30 days or so)2. We circle each other (sometimes for a long time)3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4. "Safe for work" (another judgement call)Why you should follow them?1. Add active photographers to your stream without a lot of inactive accounts.2. Find some new folks to interact with who are ACTIVE on G+As always.. if you do add them.. the best way to do that is to create a new circle and that way you can watch it and decide if they fit with you or notGoogle has recently changed the circle add logic, so you can no longer search a shared circle to determine who is in it and only add people that you don't already share. This makes life harder for all of us.Not in here?1. Maybe we haven't met yet?  If so, I'd love to hear from you and I'll be sure to check out your stream. Be sure to circle me if you haven't as I check those who add me regularly.2. Maybe you don't post public? If not, there is a good chance that you looked inactive to me.3. Maybe you don't post "primarily" photography... once again that is subjective.I love it when you shareIt does take a lot of time to visit and compile the lists. I enjoy doing it but feel free to re-share the circle with your friends. That way they can find some great new photographers too.  You don't have to reshare to remain in the circle, but it is appreciated.If you follow along you can easily add 2000+ photographers to your stream too.Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images   Here are the others in the seriesPart One: A-C https://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/1KejHoGGhBzPart Two: D-Ghttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/R9GFFEnR1CmPart Three: H-Khttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/Beo3nKCJS6oPart Four: L-Qhttps://plus.google.com/u/0/+GeneBowker/posts/J2pQM7ZpBoJ (thanks Randy for catching that)Thanks again to everyone in all of the circles. It's been a lot of fun seeing your work and I look forward to resharing the circles in a few months time. Stay ACTIVE everyone.2014-03-17 00:25:0949113234139CC G+

Ralf Skirr14,917The How To Get Started With Shared Circles V2 Circle! Lots of people re-share other people’s shared circle by simply clicking the share button on the circle post. THIS circle is a starting point and a short introduction into creating your OWN shared circles.Just Published - My EPIC Circles Tutorial.5,000 Words. 29,000 Pixels long. Check it out:http://ralfskirr.com/google-plus-circles-tutorial-for-businessFor The Critics: Did you bother to take a look? This is an excellent circle that I've put together over 6 weeks. When you add these people to your circles you'll get an amazing variety of interesting, entertaining, and educational content. From G+ gurus as well as from people with only a few dozen followers but amazing profiles.Back to How-to-get-started...Of course, if you don't feel like creating your own circle, you can simply share the traditional way: 1. Click the share button below and share. 2. Plus one this post. 3. Comment on this post. [Will add you to my upcoming engagers circle.]Quick start steps for creating your own shared circle:Create the new circle1. In the circle below click ‘Add people.’ A popup will open where you can create a new circle.2. Type a new name for your new circle, and click the button ‘Create [name of your circle] circle.’ You will now have a new circle with the 450 people from the circle I created. Google sends you to the circle page in your browser. From there you can share right away:How to share your new circleIf you want to share the 450 people circle without adding more people:1. From the circle page, click the ‘Share circle’ arrow in the round circle icon. A popup opens where you can share.2. Check ‘Include yourself in shared circle.’3. Add a comment.4. Click ‘Share.’If you want to add people to the circle before sharing:Simply visit your circles or your stream and hover over the names from people you like to add and add them to your new circle like you always add people to circles: by checking the box with the circle name.To share the circle after you've added your own people:1. Place your cursor in the top left corner for the Google+ main menu. Click ‘People. ‘2. Click ‘Your circles.  ‘3. Select the circle that you’d like to share. 4. Click the ‘Share circle’ arrow in the round circle icon. A popup opens where you can share.5. Check ‘Include yourself in shared circle.’6. Add a comment.’7. Click ‘Share.’Before you share a circle, you might want to get an idea who is actually in this circle!What's NOT in this circle:No spammers. No offensive content. No inactive people.Who I've added:- I've put a lot of time into finding interesting people. Not all 450, but lots of people who are active posters, posting a variety of topics on g+. - An even smaller [than last time] pinch of 'the usual suspects,' i.e. people active in circle sharing.- A few people who have helped me to grow my following, i.e. who have RECENTLY included me in their shared circles. Including them here is a THANK YOU for their support!AND A SPECIAL SHOUTOUT for the amazing admins of our community BLOGGERS OF GOOGLE PLUS+Julie DeNeen +elizabeth obih-frank 2014-03-04 16:51:4545012590129CC G+

Gailen Mapes58,956Hand 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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 +2014-01-29 11:33:5019720613CC G+

Such is Life!
I will not add interpretation here.
Suffice to say that the dog is called 'Tractor' and the Bengali script loosely translates as "I only desire you!", which is the title of a forthcoming movie.

Note:  The metal container on the left holds Tractor's meal, but he wasn't hungry yet :)

Who wins this race amongst these Ruddy Turnstones. Is it the bird in front (B1), or the duller bird (B2) at the back or the one bringing up the rear (B3) ? Select your winner and find the answer tomorrow, same time, same place :)
This one is specially shared to wish my dear friend +Sharon Jeannette a Very Happy Birthday. She likes races, and she is a winner all the way! :)

A Bird in Habitat
We generally tend to show birds themselves, and not as a part of their natural surroundings. Sometimes placing the subject in its habitat makes for an interesting and educative image.

Firethroat
That, actually, is the name of this bird! :)
Sometimes a bird is a great rarity for the area, in this case for the whole of India. A birder then 'twitches' the bird for the record. Although this is not my first sighting of this bird, it is possibly the 5th or 6th record for India. This is what you call a vagrant migrant.

Coping with  Summer
Climate change is best not discussed because so many want to remain in denial. But what is undeniable is the mercury.
We, at Kolkata city, had our hottest March in the last 5 years with temperatures touching 39C. The next highest was 36C in 2012!
The Jungle Myna featured here has figured out a way to beat the heat. I wish it was that simple for us.

Holi or the Festival of Colours
Holi, or the 'Festival of Colours' is a spring festival celebrated by Hindus in many parts of India and across the world with large Indic diaspora populations. Every year it is celebrated on the day after the full moon in March
 Holi is well known for the rituals attached to it. The best known is the smearing of coloured powder on each other. Initially, the only colour used was red, signifying the colour of passion. Called "Abir", the colour was originally extracted from the flowers of the 'Flame of the Forest' which blossoms at this time. 
Yesterday was Holi in India.
Happy Holi!

Bird sketches from 42 years ago!
I found these sketches in an old Laboratory notebook. I guess I made them in 1971 or 1972.
They were drawn with a purpose. There were very few bird guides books covering Indian birds those days, and these were copied from a book that I either could not afford (more likely) or were unavailable in the local market. The purpose was to aid field identification. 
The notebook has 10 pages of sketches but only two pages were painted. Any case, my daughter insisted that she scan them, so I thought I'd share this with my friends here.

The Truck Driver
I met this old gent at a wayside eatery on one of India's cross-country highways. He was relaxing on a charpai , a woven bed usually made from ropes on a wooden frame, his truck framed in the background. As I waited for my breakfast, I started a conversation with him.
He was from Uttar Pradesh, a large northern state of India. He did not remember how old he was, but could recall that he started on trucks in 1962! Since then, the road has been his home for 9 months of the year and the other 3 he spends with his family. He is a grandfather now and one of his sons is a policeman, the other works with 'komputars', as he called them. He does not need to drive around anymore and thinks that he will soon call it a day. When I asked him what kept him on the road, he sighed and said - "to escape from my wife's constant bickering".
He wanted a copy of... more »

A bauhinia for a dear friend
"Fleur-de-Lee"
I am a bird photographer and usually do not shoot flowers. But last Monday when I was in the Himalayas, I felt compelled to shoot flowers. And I shot a whole bunch of them. Little did I know that those images would be meant for a very dear friend and a very special one.
Lee and I became friends in the early days of GPlus. Our passion for birds and the mountains bridged many barriers. Indeed Lee and I were part of a small coterie of friends given to spending silly hours in private chats here. And the one who kept every one in place was our, always correct, moderator - Lee! I nicknamed her "The Professor", and she enjoyed being called that, I think. And at times we have been much more than just Social Media friends.
Lee crossed my mind many times during her illness, and this last week in the Himalayas reminded me... more »

The Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus) 
The Brahminy Kite is a medium-sized bird of prey. In India many consider it to be the contemporary representation of Garuda , the sacred bird of Vishnu or Narayan. 
This is the 1st of a series of images that I will share from my short trip to #Goa  .

This is not a Seagull Butt, but you get the message anyway!
I am a happy Non-Curator for a Non-theme - #seagullbuttsaturday  along with many other overly talented, but slightly butt-affected curators. As I live far away from seagulls, I decided to have an #ibisbuttsaturday  for myself - not that it would matter in the least to the non-curators!
The reason is simple. The worst nightmares are best addressed by blatant exposure to the source, and this Glossy Ibis delivers that message emphatically I thought!
This is my 2nd post for the day and I hope you will bear with it! Because there will be no more posts for a few days as I travel to sunny, sandy and surf-filled Goa in search of real seagulls! Be well, stay safe, and whatever else you do, stay away from Ibis butts!

Thumbs Up!
The "alula" or "winglet" is a small projection on the front edge of the wing. It is the freely moving first digit, a bird's "thumb" .
The alula is a high lift device and functions in the same way as the slats on the wing of an aircraft providing lift without stalling in slow speed flight.

Trying birds at ISO 800
I am off for a few days to do some photography at a wetland in Orissa, a distance of about 500kms from home. Before I hit the spot I figured I'd try the #D7100   at high ISO in poor light. I found that it works very well till ISO 640 but starts to lose it at ISO 800.
Any case, this is in extremely poor light, at low shutter speed (1/200) and is does not use any noise reduction. Sharpening is selective.

It is winter, and the 'Monkey Caps' are out!
Kolkata city has the mildest winter that you could wish for. But that does not stop its inhabitants from dressing up to deal with freezing temperatures. One of the best known accessories used, is the ubiquitous 'monkey cap' - as the 'balaclava' is called in the Indian subcontinent.
This was yesterday evening, when the temperature was touching 12C (54F). That is almost as cold as it gets here :)
