David Bowden37,155Its 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</david>2014-05-06 23:16:1649012223CC G+

Scott Dawson7,448It's been a while since I've shared a Google+ Showcase Circle so I figured I'd make another one up to share with all of you.This Circle is made up of  mostly new people that I've circled in the past week on Google+.To help build some engagement on Google+ & this Circle I ask that everyone who is in this circle (and anyone else that is reading this) share a recent post of their own, or one you've shared in the last week by adding a link to it in the comments.Doing so, will give us all an opportunity to connect and share with other active Google+ users.I look forward to checking out your favorite posts that I might have missed!There's no requirement to share, +1 or Comment but it's always appreciated if you do.Have a great weekend everyone!2014-03-15 15:13:23501322636CC G+

Whelp, sadly this is our last night in HI. Tomorrow we wing our way Westward so we can start deluging you all with photos on Tuesday - and I'll have some real bandwidth for a change. Woo

I've been talking about the Chronic Health Journal for a while, and I thought I'd show how I'm using it.  I don't fill out every blank, and it varies every day.  Mostly just mental notes so I can remember what I did three days ago :P

Anyway, if you think this is the sort of thing that could help you or a friend/loved one, check out the Amazon page at http://smile.amazon.com/Chronic-Health-Journal-Regaining-Control/dp/1499683790/ and the 'Look Inside'

Another shot of the Kiluea Light House on the North Shore of Kaua'i.  There aren't many ways to get a good view of it, but the overlook before you go into the park is a good one fortunately :)

So, these are my favorites from our trip to Kauai.  I hope you enjoy them 1/8th as much as I enjoyed taking them :)

Most of these are available in my galleries at http://gallery.squareheadphotography.com/Art/Places and are on sale through the end of the month for 35% off with the coupon code kauairocks.  As always, sizes under 24" long come signed, matted, and ready for you to put in a standard frame.  If you're interested in one of the panoramics, contact me privately and I can cut you a special deal on those separately.

Either way, I hope they make you want to visit +Kauai  :)

Apparently this is the pier used in South Pacific but I wanted to portray what a long freaking walk it is to the end.

I wrote a fair bit about photographic philosophy, so in a rare bit of hubris, I thought I'd share it wider.


[concerning the idea that cameras only refract light and for a mere sliver of time, and therefore can't tell a story]  I have to respectfully disagree.  A holiday snap, yes, you're absolutely right there.  A photograph, a really good one, the photographer tells a story, whether it be real, or something from the photographer's mind.  

Photojournalists routinely do this.  They will walk into a catastrophe or a triumph, and tell the story through their images, often better than the print that accompanies it.  Their best photos leave an emotional imprint that is somehow transferred from the subject to the viewer.  Is it the whole story?  of course not.  The whole story can never be told, even with a million cameras and a million more videocameras. There a... more »

Photojournalists routinely do this.  They will walk into a catastrophe or a triumph, and tell the story through their images, often better than the print that accompanies it.  Their best photos leave an emotional imprint that is somehow transferred from the subject to the viewer.  Is it the whole story?  of course not.  The whole story can never be told, even with a million cameras and a million more videocameras.  There are too many factors, and too many people, and too many things happening behind the scenes even with all that recording equipment.  The only way we can really know the whole story is as all the data we have is filtered through time.  And then because of all the data, the detail is actually lost other than a few bits here and there.  And historically, those details have been photographs.

Street photographers are all about stories.  They go out into the streets, searching for that one vignette that tells a story all on it's lonesome.  And what they find can be the richest of the rich, or the lowest of the destitute, but on the street there are always hundreds of stories to be had. Just sit on a park bench for an hour and you'll know what I mean.

Now, for the sake of a label, we'll say that [redacted] is doing boudoir photography.  Here his 'job' is to capture the essence of the woman and what it is that makes her beautiful (both inside and out).  In his particular case, he's showing us an entire series based on one woman, and is highlighting different parts of who she is through photography and words.  IMO he needs less words, but then a lot of people can't get past "boobs".  In a very real way, though, he is telling us a story.  Not of her life, but "who she is".  It's subtle, but it's there.  It's easier to see if you follow the whole series though.

Art photographers (myself humbly included) tend to go two ways.  One, they may tell a story.  Look, for example, at a landscape an art photographer may do.  There's always something going on, often involving people.  It may be a busy train station, or it may be a family playing on the beach.  There's almost always movement, and a story to be had.  Compare this to a straight "landscape photographer".  They prefer wide open scenes unsullied by human influence wherever possible.   When they do integrate mankind's droppings, they invariably create a story about that thing, and where it is.  

Then there's the art photographer that leans towards the abstract.  I'll use my own photography for as an example, because that's what I'm most familiar with.  Sometimes, I may express a story of pure emotion, or create a story
 - which is not unlike what my journalistic and street photographer friends often find, or I may create a scene where the viewer is compelled to fill in their own story, which in concept (at least) is similar to a lot of boudoir.

More than often, though, any photograph has some, or all of these elements in some balance to each other. 

But there's always a story.___

The Boy and my Pseudo-niece, not long before someone handed him the controls of a machine hurdling through the skies at several hundred miles an hour.

I thought it pretty cool that out of all the people he could have chosen for a ride-along, he chose his sister though.

"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford. "It is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them," said Ford. "They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates to the government they want."

In case you missed this earlier - A lot of work went into making this the best tool possible, and I've been thanked numerous times by the people that are using it.  If you're (or someone you know is) in need of a journal for keeping track of health symptoms and the daily things that might affect them, this just might be the right tool.

Amazon currently has the Chronic Health Journal at 14% off list price!

So, if you, or someone you know is looking for a daily health journal to jot down and track various factors, such as sleep, diet, pain levels, etc. that affect your daily life - especially as they pertain to chronic illnesses - this may just be the tool you need.

This journal was put together with the input of several people here on G+ and a few more on Facebook that have a variety of chronic conditions, and based on that input I tried to create something as flexible and easy-to-use as possible, all wrapped up in a purdy cover.

Check out the "Look Inside" on Amazon, or head over to http://www.follandfamily.com/chronic-health-journal/ for PDF samples.

And, don't hesitate to tell your friends, particularly if you think this is something you think they could use.___In case you missed this earlier - A lot of work went into making this the best tool possible, and I've been thanked numerous times by the people that are using it.  If you're (or someone you know is) in need of a journal for keeping track of health symptoms and the daily things that might affect them, this just might be the right tool.

See, I didn't know this was National Lighthouse Day, or even that there was a #lighthousethursday  but since they coincide I figure I should pull out all the stops.

I've got others I love, but this is my favorite shot of the Kilauea Lighthouse on the North Shore of Kaua'i.  It doesn't quite give the sense of location, but it lets the Lady shine in her own light.

One more from Ke'e for the night.

If you're not familiar with Kaua'i, Basically all things fan out from Lihue (the main town).  From there you can drive North, or West, but can't actually drive a full circle because there's a big nature reserve in the middle (only accessible by launch or helicopter)

Driving North from the airport, Hwy 51 turns into Hwy 56, and somewhere just past Hanalei turns into Hwy 560.  560 ends at the beach, Ke'e.  Like most North Shore beaches, get your butt there early or you're SOL unless you want to hike a mile or two back to the parking lot.  Even the gimp spaces are full by 9:00 or so.

You can't see Ke'e proper from here as this is a hike up the beach, but the old reef in this spot is so shallow at low tide that you can walk out a hundred yards or so.  And yes, a rogue swell got my butt wet taking thisone.... more »

On a side note, two things - 

One, I'm gearing up for my Summer card list.  If you're not familiar, I send cards out 1-2 times a year (solstice/christmas/etc at least) so if you'd like to be on it, PM me, or preferably shoot me an email at olav@squareheadphotography.com

Two, once I get all my trip photos processed, I'm going to have one helluva sale on panoramics.  This will include prints, metal prints, and thin wraps.  So stay tuned for that.

In Between Paradise

Around the corner and way down the way is Ke'e Beach, and behind is a beach we couldn't identify on the map.  It was super-quiet though, and a good place for reflection.

Also, I believe the piles of sand are turtle nests, though I may be wrong.  They're all lined up along the high water mark, and each pile corresponds with a hole dug into the sand.  Of course, they could also be really large crabs, in which case I'm probably glad I didn't see any.

True story:

Tunnel Beach on the North end of Kauai is almost one of those places you have almost have to just know about.  There's a narrow dirt lane and some on-street parking, but a rough guesstimate would say perhaps 30 cars could park in it's proximity.  The other option is the public parking waaaay down the beach - far enough that most people wouldn't make the trek, thus the appeal.

So anyway, we got there around 8am (if you show up past nine you're generally out of luck).  We'd settled in to a spot on the shore, and Kat and I were scouting out angles we'd like to shoot, when this gentleman named Ohio (pronounced Ohei'o) came up to us with a couple timidly in the background and said the couple were getting married and that they were here from Germany and had no friends with them, and asked if I wouldn't mind taking a few photos with their camera. I... more »

So after that, I took a number of photos with their camera, and asked if they wouldn't mind if I took a few with my own, explaining I was more comfortable with it (the camera), to which they agreed.  

I ended up taking about ten shots rather quickly, as I didn't want to detain them, and offered up my card saying that if they emailed me, I'd send them the shots (gratis, this wasn't a gig).  I'll probably put together five of my favorites.

I really love this one, and opted to post it instead of some of the others since their faces aren't identifiable.  If they contact me and consent to posting some of the others I will though :)

-edit, sharing is okay, I don't think there's anything that would embarrass, or even identify anyone.
--2nd edit despite protestations to the contrary, I do actually shoot weddings, but your attitude and style, and my attitude and style have to mesh, otherwise I'd prefer you find someone that will work with your attitude and style___

Kauai is an awesome place to shoot panoramic photos, and I succumbed to several.  

This particular shot is from an overlook on the way to Hanalei (admittedly most of my shots are from that area, but hey).  The fields on the valley floor are mostly Taro

I'll put this and some of my other panos from the trip up at www.squareheadphotography.com as soon as I figure out what standard off-the-shelf frame sizes are available for this sort of shot.

Still alive, but mostly without cell service. I'll try and work out a way to upload something actually post - worthy when I can, but in the meantime here's something from the flight in.

And with that, good night, and good luck.  At best I'll kill you in the morning.

Only, I'm going to be mostly unplugged the next week or so.  I'll see what I can post when I can find a hotspot, but that seems to be a rare thing where I'm going.

And no I won't tell you,  but I'm rather bummed I won't be able to make the Drink and Click while I'm there :/

Side note on how utterly weird my life is.

My  _ex-wife_ is going to pick me up at 7:30 tomorrow morning so me and the boy can make all the connections to get on our flight out of state.  A dot Am.

Think about that for a moment.  How many people would you get up at the crack-ass of dawn for?

So far, I've had perspective and tonic for dinner. I don't recommend it unless you're properly prepared.

Sizing yourself up against the galaxy is generally considered a bad idea.

Geek question - what if I flashed CM11 over an Omnirom install.  Would I lose all my stuff, or would the tablet just catch fire?

Ever have one of those times where you go looking for something so old and esoteric that you're completely surprised that what you intended popped up (sorry) so easily?

Well, I think I'll sleep easier tonight knowing this still exists on the internet.

Not Safe For Work, obviously.

I took this last night but didn't get a chance to share it.

Know how they say "the best camera is the one in your hand"?  Well it's true.

Shot with my Nexus 5.  Unedited other than rotating it.

So I managed to upgrade my old(ish) Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (PT5113, it matters) to Android 4.4.4 via Omnirom.  Still downloading apps, but w00t!

Most of the instructions on the internet are actually wrong, so I'll walk you through my process.  It's pretty easy once you get the feel for it...


First, download this thing called "CF auto root" and a program called Odin.  I'm not sure if the version of either matters but find what you can get.

You'll probably need the USB drivers for your tablet too.  Fortunately the ones provided by Samsung actually work.

Start up Odin and find the CF autoroot MD5 file you downloaded.  You don't know it yet, but this extension will be your best friend.  Select the MD5 file under "PDA" since no one under 30 probably knows that that means, and anyone over 40 it also has another meaning. Basi... more »

Start up Odin and find the CF autoroot MD5 file you downloaded.  You don't know it yet, but this extension will be your best friend.  Select the MD5 file under "PDA" since no one under 30 probably knows that that means, and anyone over 40 it also has another meaning.  Basically you're about to get up close and personal with your tablet.

Reset your tablet, and hold the power & up volume keys.  This puts you into this thing called "download mode"  Say yes, really, and plug the tablet into your USB port.  When nothing happens, unplug the HDMI adapter and plug the cable in again.  This time your computer makes a noise.

Hit the start button.  It does nothing.  Hit it again.  Still no bueno.  Restart the tablet into download mode again and still nothing.

Hit the Googles again.  On the 7th page you look at, they admit that it can take up to a minute for Odin to recognize the device.

Okay, unplug everything, restart the tablet into download again, and wait.

A little button lights up and says it's found something.  Cool.  Load the CF autoroot to the device, unplug and restart.

Download 'ROM Manager' from the App store.  This is distributed by Clockworkmod and everyone says this is absolutely the thing you need.

Go through the paces and download the Clockworkmod ROM that you'll need to flash your shiny new ROM.

Reboot the tablet and go through all the things they say to do.  Wipe this, clear that, and then realize you hadn't loaded the Zip files onto your MicroSD card.

Download the ROM files, and meanwhile rummage around until you find the MicroSD to SD card adapter so you can put the files on the card.  Currently you have nothing but the ROM manager on your tablet so you have to drop back and punt.

Reboot with the newly loaded card and try again.  Select the ROM and install.

Get and "Error 7".  Repeatedly.

Download the latest Cyanogen ROM and try that.  "Error 7"

Go back to Odin and reload the autoroot thing.  Try again.  Another "Error 7"

 Find out that people get "Error 7" but no one actually says what it means.

Try again.  This time the tablet resets some where in the middle of wiping stuff.

Reboot and find you're looking at the stock ROM loader.  Try loading any of the ROMs you have and they all start giving a new error - the can't verify the MD5sum (a magic number that relates to the sum of the data bits in the file.  If they don't match, something probably went wrong when you downloaded from the web).

Try all the ROMs again.

And again.

Now your tablet should be in a nice place where it won't turn off, but rather displays the loader screen just to remind you what an idiot you are, possibly for trying this in the first place.

Have a couple of stiff drinks and go to bed.  You've been fighting this thing for a couple of hours, and you really do have to get up for work in the morning.

Next day:

Do some searching on the internets and finally find a reference to your problem.  You have an old version of the clockworkmod thing.  You need this newer version, except the ROM manager you (had because it's all been deleted) didn't have the newer version despite the app being made by the clockworkmod guy.

Hit the internet again, and find out that there's actually an even newer version than the one everyone is referencing.  Deduce that this is because they're all talking about circa 4.4.2, not 4.4.4. that you're trying to load - basically 90% of the internet is working off six-month-old information.

Find the zip file for the new version of the clockworkmod ROM.   It's "unofficial" but you're used to everything being "unofficial" by this point.  Obviously you have to do this manually because you don't have a proper OS loaded.  Put it on your SD card and....

reboot again.  Still the old stock loader, but hey.  It's what you've got.  Try and load that zip file like before.

Unable to verify the MD5 sum.

F*ck.

Go back to the website where you found the Zip, and find out that there's an MD5 file like the one you loaded via Odin yesterday.  This is it.  This should work.  Go to download the file.

Server's gone.  Linky no worky.

Search for the exact file name and try again.

Linky no worky.

Try a few more sites and realize that they are all linking back to the same dead link.

Well crap.

Off to Googles again, since you passed the "no turning back" point 24 hours ago.

Find a new link.  This one's a home-brew version of the unofficial spin of the clockworkmod ROM, but hey.  They actually have an MD5 file, and has numbers higher than any of the others.  What the hell is there to lose at this point?

Do the Odin thing again.  but with this shady new MD5 file.  Reboot.

Hey!  It's that non-stock bootloader again.  W00t!

Looky!  OmniROM loaded!
Google Play loaded!

Reboot and it's a brand new tablet!

Now, wait 15 hours to re-download all your apps.

Get frustrated because it seems to be going nowhere.

Reboot.

Oh, now they're actually installing.

Wait, wait, wait.  The wallpaper sucks, but I'll change that when the apps are all done.  I don't want to break anything at this point.  But, it's also a good time to go through and delete all the bloatware the manufacturer put on the machine the first time around.

Oh, and everyone says download the 'minimum' Google Play ROM (the custom ROMs don't come with anything, really).  This means you'll spend the next (actually I'm not sure yet) days figuring out which Google Apps you're missing.  Probably not a bad idea for compatibility issues, but I don't entirely believe it.  But, it works so what the hell.

Easy, right?___
