Max Huijgen46,779The 100 most relevant people on G+ you really should check out. It´s impossible to select the people which contributes most to my experience on G+ so I´ll let Google do the dirty work.These 98 people (and 2 pages I helped founding) are the most relevant ones according to Google´s circle sort so they deserve a spot in the Friday sun.  If you´re not in it, be assured I really enjoy your posts and/or comments. I meet a lot of great people here, but this self imposed limit to 100 is just to make it easier for others to circle the whole bunch and check them out.2013-06-21 19:32:111001221459CC G+
Jim Warthman15,004Today I passed 15,000 followers! Thank you all very much for your kind appreciation and interest in my work! I am honored that 15,000 people enjoy my photography and have chosen to add me to their circles. I especially appreciate those of you who take the time to read my posts and comment on my work. I am truly humbled by this, and hope I can continue to share content that you’ll find interesting and worthy of being included in your circles.And special thanks to +Margaret Tompkins! I connected with Margaret soon after joining G+ and she has been mentoring me ever since.

Or, I had a senior moment and missed them.  I thought I had avoided that this time but I still managed to miss +Magnus Ericson should should be around 454. I noticed some interesting things when compiling this circle.  There are a lot of people that moved into the top 500 that abandoned G+ for some reason or their interaction has become one post a month.  I have also noticed that many of the photographers in this group have a lower follower count than they had 6 weeks to 8 weeks ago.  I'm not sure what conclusion can be drawn from this but I find it very curious.To view the lists please see the following links.001 to 080: http://goo.gl/mmr7w  4'431'409 - 55771081 to 160: http://goo.gl/mXuup  55368 - 37454161 to 240: http://goo.gl/rLmy1  37343 - 30457241 to 320: http://goo.gl/o06Hy  30131 -25785321 to 390: http://goo.gl/747Lf  25760 -23013390 to 450: http://goo.gl/xDc2D  23006 - 21347450 to 510: http://goo.gl/sEnac  21321 - 194402013-02-23 23:33:145001353999CC G+

Come

March 2, 2001

She arrived, full of life, youth and enthusiasm. Sass and style. Yes, she was a true red. To watch her in the sun was to be mesmerized by her beauty and grace, the light gently glistening in her coat as she moved. She was a beautiful, strong, intelligent and loving. I thanked God for bringing her into my life.

Her road to me was a hard one. Left abandoned on the side of the road in a small town outside of Houston. Fate and my 34th birthday brought us together. From the moment I first saw her, I vowed to rescue her from the life she endured thus far and provide her with a purpose and the same love she offered me.

She would suffer no more.

She noticed everything, her eyes were always aware of her surroundings. She was strong yet gentle. She was full of love and faithfully devoted. We connected immediately, she was mine.... more »

This moved me:
Its not often these days that I find something that resonates so strongly with me that it has a profound effect causing retrospective thought.

This did....

I'm going to share it because its profound, its moving, its accurate and its a direction that I have been heading in on my own but now have a new sense of urgency.

Watch it....
Share it.....

Then do it.

I am trying to DELETE this account (yes the one I am sending this message from). Everytime I go into settings and select the delete function, the browser times out and returns a 500 error. This has been going on for two days now. I have tried; Chrome, IE, FireFox and Opera. All get the same result.

Please call me on the phone number listed with my account for more details or just go ahead and delete this account. (I am fine with either).

I have posted an error message on my stream for your review. Please help.

Thanks!

This is what you get when.....
you are on a social network you ignore in favor for others deemed more popular.

So, I have been re-inventing myself online and creating the social accounts I intend to focus on. I used to be a Flickr user. From that site I had been discovered and published in Seattle Met Magazine (My first full double page spread), Texas Tech University (oddly without them knowing I was an alum... I mean really why they hell would anyone ever go to Lubbock if you didnt go to Tech) and Digital Photo Pro.

So today, I went out there to update my profile (Been a user for 6 years) but I hadnt logged into my account in 3. What was waiting for me when I logged in...???

1- Offer from a NY Based Fine Art painter to do a painting from one of my prints.

5 Ways to Create Better Images Without Buying More Gear
Original Post By: Barry J Brady

You are a photographer. You love getting out there and doing your best to create great images. Photographers also love something else. Camera equipment. Sometimes you may find that you spend more time searching for a new lens, filter or accessory than actually photographing with it. When you meet other photographers you will hear them talking about the latest piece of equipment that has just launched.

As digital photographs become easier and easier to create, edit, and share, it’s also becoming easier to doubt the authenticity of photos. There have been quite a few stories in recent days of photojournalists, news organizations, and contest winners throwing their reputations away by using Photoshop to manipulate the truthfulness of photos

Visiting Maki
So today I was looking around, visiting some friends pages and landed on +Maki Silberberg page. There I noticed a shot she took from a nice little chapel in downtown Dallas, Texas.

This nice little place was designed by Phillip Johnson. The outside of the chapel is really Un-Inspiring. It looks like a torn toilet paper roll. However, on the simplistic inside there is some amazing stained glass.

This was my take on the famous little chapel.

Thanks Maki!

Close.... the hunt is on
So today, I ventured out into the dreaded jungle know as a "Dealership." despite packing a weapon and bad attitude, I was still accosted by the local tribesmen.

They were out for blood.

Fortunately my daughter and I made it  out alive. We did however have a second to get a picture with one of the locals before hacking our way out of the dealership.

I have always liked "Give me a TICKET Red"

Decisions... decisions :)

Getting used to new Social Systems is a bummer. I REALLY need to code a single place where you can post once and hit all of the sites at the same time. Trying to keep up is a lot of work.

Friday the 13th and Baseball
For all of you LA Dodger Fans, I offer you a shot of Clayton Kershaw:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clayton_Kershaw

He threw a great game last night. We had AWESOME seats (4 rows from the field). So, equipped with my 400mm lens I managed to snag this shot.

I got a few others, but this was my shot for the night. I even got to catch a ball at the game. (that was cool. I have been to at least 100 pro games and never gotten a ball before).

So this is how I spent my Friday the 13th.... how about you..?

OneEXPOSURE
After 5 years of submissions, I am happy to say that I finally had my third image shared and published on OneExposure (1x.com). I have a TON of respect for this web site, the curated reviews and feedback needed to be included.

I can think so so many G+ Photographers that should be in 1X. I encourage you all to go take a look. Its a great site, community and forum for reviews and feedback.

Dreaming
Many of my old followers know I am a muscle car guy. Prior to losing a TON of money in the real estate bust 7 years ago, I had two sports cars. In my efforts to recover from that bust and foot the bill for College for my son, I did the responsible thing, sold them and got me a KOmuter car :)

My 2003 Cobra SVT was a dream car. 650 hp, super charged v8, 3000 watts of Stereo and done up in "Give me a ticket red!" which it did plenty of times :)

Now, I am focused on my other dream car. A stingray. The 1973 Stingray is my favorite year.... up until this year. I have always wanted one and am now seriously looking at this baby. I just cant decide if I want white or yellow. (Im done with red)

:)

I hope to be able to get one. Im having a hard time finding what I want. this is what I m searching for.... maybe in electric yellow as well.... more »

METAL
So many here know I work at #riotgames . Everyday I have the esteemed pleasure of working with some of the most passionate, devoted and all around AWESOME peeps in the gaming business. I have to tell you.... I LOVE MY JOB.

At Riot we have several musicians and a composer. (Yes, a real composer). Interestingly, our composer is a Metal head. He and the team got together and created the fist real album from a fictitious Riot Band called "PentaKill".

If you are a metal guy, or just want to hear something completely different, check this out. The music, production quality and songs are truly amazing.

http://na.pentakillmusic.com/en/

It's free (just like our game) and its on iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay and Spotify.

Curious question...????

Negative Views....
For awhile now, like my friend +Max Huijgen I have tracked and done some statistical math on how Google's G+ Operates.

Now... granted its been awhile since I was a "regular" on the site (its getting better) several things have changed. Since my last serious effort at providing daily content on Google they have graciously added "Views" to our profiles.

The thing that I have found odd as that while my follower number vary from day to day, the views number seems to go down daily..?

Being that Google stated:

The number equals the number of times your content has been seen by other people, including your photos, posts, and profile page. 

I am real curious as to how this number goes in a negative direction..?
If this is done like a regular web site the number should ber... more »

Beautiful Abstraction
Another shot I took this last month at the Arcadia Arboretum. This is a macro close up of flowers pedals as they intertwine with each other.

While I was out shooting, since I didn't have a tripod with me, I decided to embrace the gentle breeze and see what I could get + it was a recon trip to the arboretum to see what is there and what gear I would need to shoot next time I go.

Fun trip, and got some nice shots despite not being properly geared. These have a very "Water color" feel to them that I like a great deal. Normally, I would be all about the macro look and detail, but found that the softer side of flowers is fun to capture as well.

The Sorcerer's Apprentice
The Milky Way and Mars over Delicate Arch.  This is a self-image from my recent trip to Utah with +Phillip Colla.  Phil keeps inviting me to join him on these trips, and I'm happy to tag along and learn some of his secrets to master photography; hence the title of this picture.  On this evening, we hiked up to Delicate Arch, Utah's most iconic sandstone arch, for sunset, then happily watched every other person depart shortly thereafter, leaving the entire place to just us, the stars and the local wildlife.  We stayed almost the entire night, which gave us plenty of time to play around with several compositions and different light-painting techniques before hiking out in the pre-dawn darkness in time to catch the sunrise at Broken Arch.

Iron Maiden
So... I posted in Dipro001's stream that I was an Iron Maiden Fan and that I was one of the official photographers for Maiden back during their Somewhere in Time tour. I shot seven locations for Stardate Productions back in the day. There was a doubter in the thread, nice dude, but kinda throwing caution to the wind. So, I thought I would set the record straight and share a few from the show. These are all of Bruce.

These images are almost 30 years old. The first show was in Sept 1986 near my birthday. What a present it was to get this gig.

Here are three shots of Bruce. Scans from some of my 8x10 archive prints. The gold on the bottom is exactly that, gold leaf embossed name and tour markers. I used to do this for portraits I shot and did this for all of my concert pictures.

Apologies for the quality, but I wanted to share something from WAY... more »

Fun with Flowers
I recently went to the Arcadia Arboretum to shoot flowers. I enjoy taking pictures of flowers (I don't know why I don't do more of it?) Anyway, while out I decided to not pay the $50 fee for a tripod. It was windy so abstracts was going to be what I got (along with being able to recon the facility).

This was one of the images I captured.

Waiting for the end
Something that everyone may not know about me is my love for music and the profound effect it has on me. When you look at my long post archive many will notice that the titles of what I write tend to be song titles. Thats usually because the song inspires me or has taken me back to a time or an event that causes me to ponder, re-live and then express (or write).

This song is no exception.

The lyrics speak to me.
About the past as well as the present. 

The hardest part of ending is starting again

If I were to get a tattoo, I think it would be this phrase or simply the word "Unforgiven." But I will save that for another time and another story.

Thought of the day...

Beginning today,
treat everyone you meet as 
if  they were going to be dead by midnight.

Extend to them all the care, kindness and 
understanding you can muster, and do it
with no thought of any reward. 

Your life will never be the same again.

Come

March 2, 2001

She arrived, full of life, youth and enthusiasm. Sass and style. Yes, she was a true red. To watch her in the sun was to be mesmerized by her beauty and grace, the light gently glistening in her coat as she moved. She was a beautiful, strong, intelligent and loving. I thanked God for bringing her into my life.

Her road to me was a hard one. Left abandoned on the side of the road in a small town outside of Houston. Fate and my 34th birthday brought us together. From the moment I first saw her, I vowed to rescue her from the life she endured thus far and provide her with a purpose and the same love she offered me.

She would suffer no more.

She noticed everything, her eyes were always aware of her surroundings. She was strong yet gentle. She was full of love and faithfully devoted. We connected immediately, she was mine.... more »

Its been awhile....
For over three years I collected and shared an exclusive B&W circle. This circle "was" one of the most shared on G+ for awhile. I would share it once a month with everyone as a part of my personal desire to share more quality B&W images and photographers. The requirement for being in this circle was that the photographer shot at least 60% B&W images (I tend to shoot 80%).

There are some excellent photographers and friends here. I encourage you to take a look at their work. While I know that bulk circle sharing is a thing of the past or no longer the norm on G+ (which is a shame) I wanted to re-share a collection of truly inspirational people.

You wont be disappointed. Re-share if you like their work

This moved me:
Its not often these days that I find something that resonates so strongly with me that it has a profound effect causing retrospective thought.

This did....

I'm going to share it because its profound, its moving, its accurate and its a direction that I have been heading in on my own but now have a new sense of urgency.

Watch it....
Share it.....

Then do it.
