Rusty Ferguson0۝►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►The Power Ball, V7 from +Rusty FergusonNew Version 4-24-14 To Improve Your Engagement & Stream◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄۝A good shared circle will not only help you to grow your following and increase your engagement, it will also provide you with some quality people that you will be happy to have in your stream. For that reason, I have about 100 people in this circle that I would almost bet you will not share this circle. I also will not add everyone that shares my circle to my shared circles. I have a massive database of trolls and spammers. I am constantly updating that.  They are not here.  It includes about 4000 people. It is constantly updated.  Send people in my circles or communities invites and other spam and you’ll soon find yourself blocked. If they are not following you, I really dislike that.  If you’re doing it, I will know and you will soon be gone.I don’t need to be the number one most shared circle to the point that it means loading you up with a ton of people I wouldn’t follow. I won’t do it.This is a circle made up of mostly of those that are known to share circles. However there are also over 100 profiles with incredible content or promote worthy causes. Most profiles are from those that have shared my circles in the past.To remain in this Circle do this:Plus this post.   Comment on this postShare this CircleAdd this Circle to your circles When you get re-shares of circles that you share, you’ll find that you are in more circles.  It is in your best interest to share it to your stream and tell others about the benefits of shared circles. Are You New to Circle Sharing?Here are some quick tips for you. When you add a circle, many of the people in it will add you back.  Many more will if you have a profile picture of your face. To further improve on that complete your tagline and employment fields found in your profile. Instead of saying you work for IBM or Walgreen’s tell us something about you in that field. What you do at your job or what you’d like to do. It doesn’t matter. What I want to know is what you are interested in on Google Plus.  You’re profile should tell us about what kinds of post you make.The other day, someone told me some of the people that add the circle will delete it. She’s right, they will. So what you need to do is engage with the people you add. Leave comments on their post. When you do your name shows up and if you keep doing it you will get their attention and even those that delete will keep you in their circles more often. Those that don’t, probably are not worth your efforts.Also, for those post that you like or think your audience (followers and potential followers) will enjoy, share those post. When you share another person’s post you should plus tag the person that shared and it and the person that originally posted it. If you don’t do this, they will likely never know you shared it. If they do know they might come by and plus or comment on your share. How do you plus tag? Type the plus sign and then without a space start typing their name. This works best if you add them to your circles before you plus tag them. As you type their name, G+ will offer suggestions of people on G+. When it finds the person you just circled, click their name and you’re done. Now they should get a notification that you mentioned them in a post and they can go straight to your post and view your profile. Google wouldn’t be showing us the number of profile views if it wasn’t important. Google is trying to get us to improve our postings. I believe that’s the main reason they recently add2014-04-24 14:03:33454124110119CC G+

Mark Goodman8,406Introducing the Photographer Inspiration and Engagement circle.This is a collection of photographers I personally find inspiring as well as active and engaging on Google+. My hope is that if you like my work you'll also thoroughly enjoy the posts of those included in this circle.  Who's in the PIE? You knew there'd be a hook right ;)- Mostly Landscape, Cityscape and Architectural photographers.- Share mostly original content.- Photogs that I relate to they way they take a photo, process a photo or that I want to dabble in a similar look to what they achieve.- A few people that have shared me in previous circles with an appreciation for their support.Who's not in the PIE?- A lot of outstanding photographers that may just have a different style or shoot a different genre from my own. You can consider them the ice cream on the side :)- People I haven't discovered even if they might be in my circles and people I may have overlooked. It's a big Google+ ocean but I hope to continue adding people that fit this particular circle in the future. - No spammers or non-photography related streams. If you find that's not the case please send me a message.Please add and reshare the circle so others may enjoy what I think is an extremely high quality circle.Have a great day and enjoy your enhanced content stream!2014-04-06 16:56:5721024719CC G+

Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/2)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca  #sharedcircles #circles #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:30:374321214692CC G+

Gailen Mapes61,421Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  T-Z - 30 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. 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 +2014-03-30 11:12:43200605CC G+

Daniel Mihai Popescu41,745I do not remember why I have called this circle Zero when I gave it this final form. Anyway, it's a circle of value, it's not a "push". So, don't feel obliged with anything. A "+1" will be greatly appreciated.Thank you very much! #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  I still have some great difficulties to connect properly to G+, so I hope that you understand that. "Engagement" means connecting. I have to assure you that you haven't lost me :) Of course, if you feel that I don't "interact" with you as much as you like, don't be afraid and uncircle me! 2014-03-28 10:52:1148713273168CC 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.

ハングアウト放送「Google+の遊び方」って何?

「Google+の遊び方」というGoogle Hangoutsを使った番組が始まるそうだ。そして、その0号(パイロット版?)に出演することになった。Google+のこと、Cool Japanのこと、そして写真のことなどを話すらしいが、どうなるかはまったく予測がつかない。

司会 +荒井沙織/Saori Arai で放送されるこの番組の初回は4月30日(水)でゴールデンウィークの谷間。午後12時半開始ということで、おそらくタモリのいなくなった昼休みの時間帯を狙い撃ちするのだろう(ほんとか!)。そんな時間に遊べないよ! そんな時間に見られないよ! という方は、録画がアーカイブされるので、ぜひそちらを見て遊んでいただきたい。
放送のイベントページはこちら >> http://bit.ly/ROBEd1

A New Hangouts Show: How to Enjoy Google+

I'll appear on a new Hangouts show hosted by +荒井沙織/Saori Arai . I'll talk about Google+, Cool Japan, and my photos. The programs will be all in Japanese, but if you have time pllease Stop by at its Event Page: http://bit.ly/ROBEd1  The program starts at 12:30 P.M. JST on April 30, and it will be archived on YouTube!... more »

名も知らぬ植物が海風にユラユラ。
カップルのシルエットが日の光にユラユラ。
それぞれのユラユラが同期したとき、
カメラを構える僕は「しめた!」と思う。

Unfamiliar plants are swaying in the sea wind.
So are the silhouette of a couple in the sunlight.
When the both movements synchronize,
I say yes and click the shutter.

365 COOL JAPAN on Google+ 完走のコツ

「日本のカッコイイ」を365日間写真で世界に発信しようというプロジェクトが始まった。ほかのプロジェクトを実行中の僕は残念ながら参加することができなかったけれども、4月のスタートメンバーの方々を応援していきたい(4月参加メンバーのサークルはこちら: http://bit.ly/1if9s7Y)。

また、5月スタート、6月スタートとメンバーを募集するそうなので、「ぜひ参加したい!」という方は、こちらのFAQをご覧いただきたい: http://bit.ly/1if9uwM
僕が、写真を1日1枚撮って投稿するという「365プロジェクト」に初めて挑戦したのは2009年のこと。デジカメはあゆが宣伝していたパナソニックのコンデジしか持っていなかったけれど、それを毎日持ち歩いて撮り続けた。

雨降りが続いて困ったときがあれば、残業で遅くなって日付が変わるギリギリまで街をさまよったこともある。台風が近づいても逃げられないし、風邪で床に伏しても手からカメラを離せない。毎日写真を撮るというのは思った以上に大変だった(今回の365 COOL JAPANは毎日撮らなくてもいいそうなので、ご安心を!)。

2011年末には、その経験を「Fuel YourPhotography」という写真サイトに書く機会をいただいた。それが発端となって、2012年の365(正確にはうるう年だ... more »

Sweet Scent

色とりどりのツツジが咲き誇る。
甘い香りが道を行く人の足を止める。
この時期にしか味わえない、
ほんの束の間のぜいたく。

Azalea flowers are blooming colorfully.
The sweet scent makes people stop.
It’s a luxurious moment we can enjoy
Only at this time of year.

Hurrying Home

見たいテレビがある、
飼っている犬に餌をやらなきゃ、
怒った妻が玄関に仁王立ち。
家路を急ぐ理由は人それぞれ。

“I’ll watch my favorite TV show.”
“I have to feed my dog.”
“My wife is waiting with her arms crossed.”
They hurry home for various reasons.

Dogwood Flowers

ハナミズキの花が踊る。

鳩がポッポと来て餌をねだる。
何も起きないことがうれしい晴れの週末。

Dogwood flowers are dancing.
A man sitting on the bench is nodding off.
Pigeons are coming cooing for food.

Birds, a Boat, the Sun and Me

The birds fly, a boat goes.
I sometimes hear the sound of passing trains
Running through the golden bridge.
The sunlight in the late afternoon
makes me feel warm and comfortable.

鳥が空を舞い、船が川を進む。
黄金色の橋を渡る電車の音がときおり聞こえてくる。
午後遅い時間の日の光が
僕を心地よく温めてくれる

A Man with Passion

Have you seen +takashi kitajima's photos? I love the extreme bokeh in his works. If you haven't, see this (http://bit.ly/1nuZdBA), this (http://bit.ly/1gRO4d0) or this one (http://bit.ly/1jfLdri).

Last night we had a "famous" Snipers' Night in Shinjuku (It's just about three men hanging out and taking photos but we love to call it that way). Anyway, he showed up with a broken arm! He said he had done it by tripping on the ice in Hokkaido.

One broken arm never keeps him from resting at home. I was just amazed with his passion for photography!

A Sniper on a Mission

As a Staff Pro Member of +f-stop, I agreed to submit photos of me using one of their soon-to-be-released bag. I couldn't take such photos myself, so I asked +Motonori Ando,  a good friend of mine to take them for me.

Here in this photo, you can see him searching for a nice angle for capturing me and the bag in Daiba, Tokyo. I hope that I will be able to show you the results soon. Please wait until they have released a lookbook that features the new line of bags!

I know Totoro won't visit such a bus stop in the industrial area in Kawasaki, but I just imagine the scene when I saw this bus stop. Do you know Totoro by the way?

Cherry Blossom Street

Eight-fold cherry blossoms started to bloom.
I always visit this street at this time of year,
and applaud the finale of the cherry blossom season.

The Bridge of Friendship

Fureai Bashi, the Bridge of Friendship, is the name of this bridge. It's often used in TV dramas, and I like the atmosphere surrounding it.

2月に個展が開催されることが決まって、最初に写真を撮りに行ったのがこの場所(この一週間前にゲートブリッジを訪れたけれど、そのときは個展に出す写真を撮ることは考えていなかった)。でも、空の感じが気に入らなくて、もう一度ここに来ようと思ってそれっきり。ドラマのロケにもよく使われる、天王洲にあるふれあい橋。小さい橋だけれど雰囲気が好き。

The Findear Magazine Vol. 1 has been published. Its concept is to connect creative people (Available only in Japan).  Along with +nao sakaki's beautiful photos, four of mine which I took for my exhibition but didn't select are featured in the magazine. My style seems very different from the others in it, but I'm very happy that I am included.

The Arakawa Line Photowalk 2013 Spring

March 30 was a stormy day. It was not a perfect day for a walk at all, but 57 people joined the event (We even had a guest photowalker from Germany, +Justin Rush). I hope everyone there had a very nice (or at least memorable ) day!  By the way, we are divided into four groups because the trains are really small and we were not able to get in the same train at once. That's why not many people are in my photos ...

3月30日に開催した「男と女の荒川線写真散歩」(男と女シリーズ4回目!)には、悪天候にもかかわらず57名が参加した(ドイツからは +JustinRushさんも参戦!)。とても楽しい(少なくとも記憶に残る)一日となった。ところで荒川線の車両サイズの都合で、参加者は4グループに別れて移動した。だから、写真に人はあまり写っていないのだった。

荒井沙織 応援プロジェクト / Saori Arai Supporting Project

The name of the event doesn't matter. There's no official name. Anyway, we held an event for supporting, +荒井沙織 (Arai, Saori),  a young female talent from Hori Production, one of the major entertainment agencies in Japan. I met her at the Cool Japan on Google+ Event and thought it would be great if she became more popular  on Google+ than the famous AKB48 members.

Google+を通じて、これまでたくさんの人と出会い、多くのイベントやプロジェクトが生まれてきた。だから、出会いを大切にしたいという思いは日を重ねるごとに大きくなる。先日、Cool Japan on Google+ のイベントで、ホリ・プロ所属の +荒井沙織 さんにお会いした。そのときに生まれたのが

After the Party

I enjoyed dinner with the people involved in my photo exhibition that was held last month. After the dinner, I had a chance to capture the moon over the city of Tokyo. Tomorrow, I will organize an event to support a young female talent. After that, I'll be engaged in a new project. I'm excited.

River Of Cherry Blossoms

So many people have visited Naka-Meguro and enjoyed cherry blossoms. I did too. So many people have taken this angle, and I did too. I just couldn't help it.

中目黒の目黒川沿いはものすごい人出。宴会を開くスペースがないだけまし。たくさんの人が撮っているこのアングルを僕も撮る。去年も撮ったけれど、今年も撮る。このためだけに今日、今週で会社を去るという友人との飲み会の場所を、無理やり変更してここに寄り道した。

Sakura Tunnel

This is the tunnel of cherry blossoms on my way to the office. I like this place because almost no one is there in the morning even though the cherry blossoms are in full bloom.

通勤路にある桜のトンネル。毎年撮る。日が暮れると人がほとんどいないいから、のんびりできて気に入っている場所。今日も風が強かったけれど。

The Arakawa Line Photowalk / 荒川線写真散歩

It was a rainy and windy day, and many broke their umbrellas, but at the last spot we visited, we were able to enjoy the sunlight on the cherry blossoms in full bloom. I was happy with the view. The lens also seemed to be extremely happy and took in too much sunlight.

今日は雨風激しく、何人もが傘を壊すという前代未聞のフォトウォーク。それでも楽しくやれたのは、参加者の皆さんが楽そうにしていてくれたから。そして最後の目的地に着いたときには晴れ間ものぞいて、神田川沿いの満開の桜がひとときだけ輝いた。激しい天気の後だっただけに、この光景はうれしかった。そして、レンズも喜んだみたいで、ちょっと光を取り込み過ぎたみたいだ。

Earth Hour

I joined Earth Hour (8:30 - 9:30 P.M.). Turning off the electric lights, I enjoyed the time with candle lights, making paper cranes.

毎年恒例のアース・アワーに参加。電気を消し、キャンドルの明かりだけで一時間を過ごした。久々に折り紙で鶴を作ることにも挑戦。折り方をだいぶ忘れていて戸惑ったけれど、穏やかな気分になれたひとときだった。

Time, Please Stop / 時間よ止まれ そして、感謝の言葉

Flowing clouds, Shivering water,
Struck by the beautiful morning sky,
Time, please stop,
I will never leave your side.

流れる雲、揺れる水面
夜明けの空に心打たれる
時間よ止まれ
僕は君のそばを離れない

Dancing White

Spiraea is one of my favorite flowers, and I love to take photos of them with tilting the lens. I love how shifting focus points have create a dreamy atmosphere.

いろいろな方が投稿しているユキヤナギは、僕のいちばん好きな花で、毎年この時期になると、この花がたくさん咲く近所の公園近くに足を運ぶ。そしてレンズをティルトさせて撮るのがお気に入り。レンズを傾けると、その向きにフォーカスが手前から奥にスライドするから、この花の立体的な造形が強調されて、不思議な感じの絵が撮れる。

Me with an Umbrella

This is a photo of me taken by my hero, +Trey Ratcliff. It was during the photo walk event in Asakusa. I'd like to add the #CoolJapan  tag to the disposable umbrella, not to myself :p

浅草で開催されたイベントの最中に撮ってもらった僕のポートレート。 撮ってくれたのは僕のヒーロー、+Trey Ratcliff さん。僕にではなく、この透明傘に #CoolJapan のタグを付けたい(実は、海外に輸出したら大儲けできるのでは、と考えたことがあった・笑)。ちなみに 雨降りの写真散歩のときはビニール傘を使うと決めている。傘を低く構えても前が見えるし、被写体に近寄っているときでも、傘が影を作ってしまったりしないから。

SIMHA / シムハ

シンガーソングライターでアクセサリーデザイナーの友人、アーヴィン・アヤ・ホマさんのブランド「SIMHA(シムハ)」の展示即売会に足を運んだ。場所は渋谷の東急ハンズ近くにあるビルの3階。

今回の展示会では、女性用アクセサリーに加えて男性用もあったので、僕は2枚めの写真にあるレザーブレスレットを購入した。石や素材をオーダーでき、自分だけのアクセサリーが作れるのがよい。

展示即売会は、明日(3/23 日曜日 13:00-18:00)まで。会場はJET SET Depatment(東京都渋谷区宇田川町42-6)。 http://on.fb.me/1lZjdvz

I visited an exhibition and sale of an accessory brand, SIMHA, which is owned by a friend of mine, Aya. She is a talented singer/songwriter andjewelry designer. For this exhibit, she designed men's accessories as well as women's. I was happy to order a yellow leather bracelet in the second photo :)

100 Tokyo / Cool Japan Photo Walk

These are the photos from the event I joined yesterday. I posted some of the photos on site yesterday, but they are all SOOC JEPGs, so I processed the RAW files at home.

What event was it? It was the opening event of 100 Tokyo / Cool Japan on Google+ . For this event, all the participants (including photographers) were divided into three groups. A: Harajuku and Aoyama Area (Fashion), B: Marunouchi and Ginza (Urban), C: Asakusa and Skytree (Traditions). The one I joined was the last one. Despite It was a rainy day and we didn't have time to visit the Skytree (The upper half was in the clouds!), we all had fun time! Thanks Google Japan for having such a nice event!

Nightmare Factory

The auto-white balance function did this job. The lights should have been orange, not red. The pipes look like bloody intestines, don't they?

本当はオレンジの光が、オートホワイトバランスで真っ赤に。血塗られたなんとかみたい。
