paula contreras9,580There are so many of us out here that have image issues and are our own worst critic.  I challenge you all to take a picture of a body part (and please keep it somewhat clean everyone) that you think is your best attribute.  Take a picture of your arms, hands, feet, knees, hips, etc. that make you feel beautiful.  If you think your whole body is beautiful that’s wonderful, just pick one part. I know you all are beautiful so get busy and shoot.You can do your shot in whatever style you want this is all about your depiction of your beauty, so try abstract, B&W, HDR, whatever tickles your fancy.  Mostly have fun and invite anyone you want.http://youtu.be/VYmFpYdwqLsYou are Beautiful2014-02-21 04:00:0047

Lotus Carroll1,771,636This is the Event for our September 2013 Self Portrait Challenge: A Great Cell Phone Photo. Just because you use a cell phone doesn't mean your self portrait has to be of the "facebook style" mobile or reflection variety.

Your photo must have been captured this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST September 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month.

It makes a huge difference! Is there junk in the room behind you? If yes, it's not a good place to shoot. ETC.*DO NOT just slap a filter or cheesy effect on and call it a day - take the time to try different edits and pay attention to the elements of your photo. *DO NOT point your phone at a mirror and take a reflection photo where we can see your phone.*DO NOT have your arms in the photo as you're holding the phone out in front of or above you.*DO NOT duckface.*DO NOT showcase your cleavage as the main subject.Here's a list of Photo Apps you can try out:SnapseedVSCOcamRetouch (cloning tool!)Camera+Camera!PhotoStudioPixlr ExpressAviaryInsPhotoPrizes1 Year of +September Self Portrait Challenge: A Great Cell Phone Photo2013-09-01 07:00:00180

Scott Jarvie386,355UPDATE: it's online now: http://youtu.be/-DItFCAg4jM We like to call this a "PLUS ONE PARTY"Because people submit links to their albums and we look through the pictures and we plus one the pictures we like in the album.It's my way of giving quick feedback to people about which pictures really catch my attention out of their images. It's quick and yet helpful.Last time we looked at over 120 albumsLIVE PUBLIC HANGOUTYep it'll be a live public hangout again.Shorter and more awesome than last time.So if you LINK us an album make sure you know they will be on video and then on youtube. We're both really nice people and with people pictures we worry about commentary for fear they're related to you or something. But we may make commentary and you gotta be alright with that as well. The video won't be edited when it goes onto youtube.I'm basically saying: The easily offended need not applyTHEME = PEOPLE PICTURES+Susan Marinello and myself have a separate project going on where we're spending dozens of hours researching to find great photographers and create the most awesome list of "people shooters"https://plus.google.com/u/0/100962871525684315897/posts/UMBDiPKJqKaSo therefore we've made the theme this time to People pictures as well because that's what mood we're in.If you already have an album like that share it. Or maybe put together another one in the next 24hrs that you'd like us to go through. Professional work, weddings, families, kids, selfies, street candids, models etcJOIN INThis time we'll be linking the albums and having people join us as we go through the pictures... so you may be getting a lot more plus ones (eyeballs) than normal.FAQWe won't be looking at non-people pictures even if they're in the album.We'd rather not look at crazy large albums so try to keep them under 50 (but we can be a bit lenient)Please submit open/public albums specially since other people than myself will be wanting to view.Make sure you're following myself (+Scott Jarvie ) and +Susan MarinelloAlbum Viewing Party - People Themed (A Jarvie Production)2012-09-24 05:00:0078

Trever McGhee71,060Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system!This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know.Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know.I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way,The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it.My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you.I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true.Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later.Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish.They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event.It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters.Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true.Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart.Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life...*****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOUIn my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with.So today I Celebrate being 44 aUpdate to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00205

Gailen Mapes68,516Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera D-F - 4 of 31Note: 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 October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."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 +2014-10-04 10:42:35157101

Pibble Awareness Month

October is not only my favorite month because I get to play dress up and share spooktacular imagery, it is also Pibble (Pit Bull) Awareness Month.

In 2011, October was designated as National Pit Bull Awareness Month and the 27th is the official awareness day.  It started to honor the memory of Tiffin, the dog that inspired Bless the Bullys and National Pit Bull Awareness Day.  It was a way to pay tribute to the incredible creature who captured hearts and inspired the work to change the perceptions of the American Pit Bull Terrier and "pit bull-type" dogs, or the more affectionate term I like to use - pibble. 

As you may be aware, I am the proud momma to this sweet rescue named Tenshi, who will celebrate her 3rd birthday on the 3rd of this month; here is her story:

In 2011, October was designated as National Pit Bull Awareness Month and the 27th is the official awareness day.  It started to honor the memory of Tiffin, the dog that inspired Bless the Bullys and National Pit Bull Awareness Day.  It was a way to pay tribute to the incredible creature who captured hearts and inspired the work to change the perceptions of the American Pit Bull Terrier and "pit bull-type" dogs, or the more affectionate term I like to use - pibble.

Show A Little Heart

“Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but - I hope - into a better shape.” ― Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

For the love of all things make-up like, and to satiate my need to make fun and sometimes bizarre self portraits, I give you this take on a few different elements.

First, it follows the gothic meme of literally 'showing your heart' followed by the symbolism of a dark and evil queen holding a heart in her bloodied hand (Inspired a bit by Regina from Once Upon A Time and her heart removal process).  

Sure, I could have made the beautiful (as if glamoured) with a fashion make-up, but what fun would that be? I had my cool contacts and plenty of Snazaroo face paints lying around, so clearly something strange hadto be d... more »

The most hilarious part about this shoot is the fact that those contacts are not corrective.  That's right - I was blind as a bat and tossing my glasses on and off in between a few burst shots to check the settings and lighting.  Rather comical, I might add.

I actually have a few with my glasses on that I am going to process later on, but for now, here is one of the many versions I have created from this single image!

Enjoy and Namaste! ♥

Death of the Butterfly

The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins? - Edgar Allan Poe

While walking with +Patti Colston and Paris, we happened upon a dying flutterby who could not fly due to the tattered wings.  At first we thought we were just fortunate enough to finally get a shot of one being so still, but with further inspection, we realized we were witnessing its last moments.

I got the poor dear to climb up on my finger and placed it up in a tree.  I believed it to be the right thing to do; let it die in peace rather than being swarmed by marching ants.

What an interesting blur...

Sitting on my finger with life coursing just below the surface, the butterfly spent some of its last few moments...

The cycle of life and the boundaries of such things is terrifying and wondrous.

To Paris, With Love

It is no secret that I love portraits (which include pets), and today, while walking around with +Patti Colston and her lovely pupperooni Paris, I had the opportunity to catch Paris relaxing while taking a break from squirrel investigating.

Such an energetic, well-mannered, and beautiful pup.

Thankies Patti for letting me tag along on your puppy time!

Enjoy! ♥

Stand Tall, Even When The Sky Is Falling

While out at the Barkingham Dog Park with +Patti Colston and Paris, I happened upon this shroom who was standing up to the adversity of all the crap falling from the sky and I thought it was pretty awesome.

It also sends a message out to anyone in difficult times...

Stand up, keep your chin up, and know that you are strong enough to get through it!

Namaste! ♥

I don't typically share my blog posts on Google Plus, especially the ones revolving around writing or other stuff like fitness, recipes, or whatnot, but since this post dealt directly with how the internet has helped me grow as a person, including the interactions on G+, I thought I would give it a little share!

Phone Vs. PhotoShop

So, I decided to challenge myself, yet again, to try something new.  I am always curious about things and improving my skills, and one way to do that is to test things out.

Both of these images were taken with my iPhone and the Macro Olloclip attachment, but when it comes to processing, they were done in completely different ways.  One was created using VSCO on my iPhone and the other was processed using PhotoShop CS4.

During this little challenge/experiment, I came to the conclusion that the iPhone Presets and other apps you can edit with are fast and the more the apps improve with customization, the more spot on you can be with your tweaks and style.

Don't get me wrong, I love Photoshop and really like to use it as a 'go to' for editing, but it did take me a much longer time to edit the image, but I could go at what Iw... more »

Don't get me wrong, I love Photoshop and really like to use it as a 'go to' for editing, but it did take me a much longer time to edit the image, but I could go at what I wanted to adjust with surgical precision, which you simply cannot do with the phone apps.

Just like anything, it is all about selecting the right tools for the job, and I can honestly say that neither trumps one over the other since every image and process is situational to what look you want to achieve.

So, what do you think?  Do you agree?  I am always up for hearing other people's views and opinions, but let's keep it respectful!

Namaste! ♥

As you may be aware, I am the proud momma to this sweet rescue named Tenshi, who will celebrate her 3rd birthday on the 3rd of this month; here is her story:  

This is my girl, but when I found her sneaking into my parents' garage and circling the yard between our houses at 4-5 weeks old, it was a completely different story.  I was backing out, on my way to work, when I saw her, and actually thought she was this tiny Jack Russell, so I called my mom to check it out.

When she went out, she told me that she was just a little neglected puppy and was in rough shape.  I told her to call my boyfriend right away and have him bring her into the house.

We waited 48 hours before we got our hopes up that we could keep her, but regardless, we took her to the vet and got her on the mend.  She was covered in ant and flea bites and had a fat little belly full of parasites, which we treated her for.

Once the time was up, we claimed her and gave her a name - Tenshi, which means Angel.  She is our very special little angel, even when she gets so hyper she is about to bust.

Looking at her today, she is full of spunk, muscle, and drooly kisses.  She is a great family member and I feel blessed that she decided to join our family. ♥

Most people on the planet are aware that 'bully-type' breeds get a bum rap because of a isolated cases and sensationalized media.  I am not saying that there aren't horrible instances where people are attacked by dogs, but I am saying that I don't believe that dogs or 'bully breeds' are inherent to violence based on genetics.

However, this post is not about that, and I respectfully ask that it not become a forum for it.

It is about honoring and bringing awareness for the sweet pups and furbabies that are not allowed to play at dog parks or become banned from locations because they 'look' like they could be trouble.

There are many great places all over the internet to find out information so I am also not going to share a plethora of facts.  I will share with you one documentary I truly enjoyed watching with my daughter:

Beyond The Myth (http://www.beyondthemythmovie.com/)

I believe that prejudice is prejudice, and profiling pets is not a thing that will make the world or parks a safer place.  Just like people, we all come in different shapes and sizes, and we all have different temperaments and personalities.

Don't blame the many on the actions of a few. People and pups included.

So, for the month of October, I welcome you to educate yourself, show patience, and open up your mind to new thoughts on pibbles and people alike.

Namaste! ♥

Hello October!

#ThisIsHalloweenPhotography is in super high gear!

It is October first, and the Hallow's Eve holiday is rapidly approaching.  I know many of my fellow spooks and specters are already getting into the mood - +Patrick Kelly already brought it this morning. 

Since this is one of my all-time favorite times of year, last year I put up a little un-curated hashtag that can be used year round (though, you can tag me in it if you want so I can see it and reshare the awesomeness) called  #thisishalloweenphotography .

Again, this is not seasonal, it will be for year round tricks and treats, macabre and menacing photography, but it is obvious that this time of year we see a lot more offerings!

I hope you are all not too afraid to slither on in!!! ^.~

* You want thingamabobs? I got twenty.  But, who cares? No big deal. I want more...*

So, it has been quite some time (I believe my Almost Human series) since I created a theatrical painted face or make-up photoshoot for myself.  It isn't like I was in a funk for ideas, I just had so much on my plate with my work-out schedule and vacationing that I put the shoots on hold until I had the time to dedicate to doing them right.

I really put my whole 'self' into a make-up concept and go the extra mile with processing to reach the vision I had planned.  A pseudo mix of artistry and photography, I suppose.

A little back story on this:

I grew up with The Little Mermaid (the tragic and depressing written version and cartoon movie), and while I loved the the way mermaids have been portrayed in cinema and literature, I have always had a thought in my head as toho... more »

I grew up with The Little Mermaid (the tragic and depressing written version and cartoon movie), and while I loved the the way mermaids have been portrayed in cinema and literature, I have always had a thought in my head as to how I would create them with my knowledge of the seas and its inhabitants.

I always saw them as fish-like (perhaps it is my Pisces influence), but with a human form.  Fish have shiny scales, but mermaids need to have something mesmerizing about them in the water so I went with colors that might make a sailor stop and take notices of what is below the surface of the drink.

I started with a silver cream theatrical make-up and dusted a silver shimmer powder over it to set.  Once set, I placed a fishnet stocking over the make-up and dusted colored powders over the fishnet to create that scaled like texture.  I also added my green anime contacts, blues, purples, and teals to the eyes to match the scales.

The finishing touches were the bright red 'Ariel' wig, shells I actually picked off of our local beaches, and the infamous fork for hair combing!

I hope you all enjoy!

I hadn't planned on doing a +Movie Mashup Tuesday mash this morning, but when I logged in and saw that it was +Mark Rodriguez ' birthday AND it was #moviemashuptuesday , I felt like I just had to challenge myself to something a little different today.

If you are familiar with Mark, then you know he is an artist (of many things), and in his stream, he recently doodled up Groot.  It was a super cute rendition, so I thought to myself...

I wonder what Groot would look like in badass mode?

What better way to be badass than to mash Mark up in the Groot-ster; I couldn't think of one.  Plus, it gave me a chance to try something beyond a simple face meld; this one had textures and color that had to be matched.

Namaste and enjoy! <3

A little tutorial on Painted Faces for The Art of Self Portraiture and for all of you! 

Enjoy! ♥

Don’t Panic!

Self Portraiture Tutorial: Painted Faces

I am sure many of you have seen some of my bizarre self-portraits where I have painted my face to be anything from the iconic “Crying Girl” to the more famous video game villain “Kefka Pallazo”, but what you may not know is that it is easier than you think, so….

DON’T PANIC! =)

Now that you have the first step down, where do you go from here?
Well, you come up with a concept.  I find that creating boards on Pinterest are a great source for help.  If you follow this link (http://www.pinterest.com/juxtapixelsfoto/presence-of-painted-aesthetics/), you will find a board that I personally keep for thoughts and ideas.  Some ideas are simple and minimal while others speak to my more expert make-up-ista.  Go with what you are comfortable with....always.  Having images to use as an inspiration and reference are always a great starting point; when I create or sit down to conceptualize, I may look at hundreds of images to get an idea for how I would do something that fits my style.  Once I get my concept down, sometimes I will literally sketch it out on a make-up artist test sheet like the one found here: http://makeupanarchist.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/closedEyeFaceChart.jpg.

After this phase, I move on to watching some videos if I am not familiar with a style for creating.  One thing that had been foreign to me when I began was blocking out eyebrows.  I searched the internet high and low for good techniques until I found a bunch of wonderful MUA (make-up artist) channels that had sound and documented results.  Here are a few links to some of my more favorite ‘extreme’ make-up artists who deal a lot in using paints to recreate nifty looks:

Ana Arthur: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuM4X4D5U3_udV_7hVuc77g

Audfaced: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpYFwrSRGSEmtv5SB0Ks-IA

Courtney Little: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5IqIxx_ti_UravJUS9r30w

Emma Pickles (Halloween Make-Up Tuts): https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLiqqBjSfPM6o3_TxuHAWGH6nWlqdTdbdn
MissPixieLulu: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrB-WwcqR3BB01uOnVklDhg

Pinkstylist (One of my absolute favorites): https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAAszizDDdScfqclAybLiEA

I find that it can be difficult to create something with nothing.  It never hurts to see how others may do certain things if it may make it easier for you to get something accomplished.  I have shaved hours off of my make-up application time by using techniques that I learned from some of these amazing people.

Okay, so you have the concept and the techniques…

Now what?

You need supplies.

This may seem like an impossible thing, but it really isn’t.  you can use any quick make-up kit that they sell at the store, you can use allergy-tested paints (I have used acrylics on my face before) and even black light pigments if they do not irritate your skin.  The key is to do what you feel comfortable with and on your own budget.

Some of my looks have been at a price of fewer than 5 dollars to create like my ‘Living Doll’ series.  The key is to remember that you don’t have to spend a million dollars to create something awesome; you may just need a cool idea and a clever execution.  My favorite products come from Snazaroo (some palettes and individual colors are 5-20 bucks and they last forever since they are water-based) and Ben Nye (Good stuff, but on the pricier side).

Finally, the application.  

The most important things I can tell you about this are all from trial and error, failures and recoveries, and most importantly, experience:

1. Test your applications in advance if you are worried about messing up.  If you are doing details, practice them a few days prior without all the other make-up on so that way you get the muscle memory down for the technique.
2. Plan out the steps to application.  Having a game plan for even the simplest make-ups will make a huge difference.
3. Take your time.  It isn’t a race and you should always give yourself enough time to get the make-up done and time to shoot.
4. Never underestimate the power of some really good detail brushes.
5. Remember that a make-up does not have to be complex to be great.  Some of my more fun looks where only a handful of colors and materials.
6. Don’t fret if something goes wrong.  Take a big, deep breath, collect your thoughts, and remember that everything will be alright.  Sometimes a quick wipe of make-up remover or skilled touch-up will save a look if you give yourself a chance to work through it.

Once you get the application complete, you are ready to be in front of your lens.  Be sure to pick a costume or scene that heightens your look.  This can be done with location or even Photoshop compositing.  Also, if you notice any issues with the make-up once you are editing, which I have done before, simply clean it up with your program of choice or use the flaw to the advantage of the image.

Here is a video to my own work on the character Kefka: http://youtu.be/Khng6V4112Q  and the album below has some of my favorite ‘painted faces’ from my body of work.

Most importantly…

Remember to have fun with this challenge and all other challenges!

Enjoy! ♥___A little tutorial on Painted Faces for The Art of Self Portraiture and for all of you!

A Little Help For My Friends

I don't think you can ever be too late when trying to lend a helping hand, and in this case, I think this to be true.

I have met +Patti Colston down here in my neck of the Florida swamps and to say she has a big heart is an understatement.  When we met, I instantly knew that her salty snark and generous nature were true and that we would hit it off.

Now she is humbly looking for some assistance, and I want to help spread the word.  Please read her original posting below and give her a hand in either monetary means or just helping spread the work through a reshare.

Every little bit helps...

Namaste! ♥

The time has come for me to swallow my pride and ask you, a majority that I have gotten to know solely here, for help. I'm in need of some financial assistance to help us out of the red. My goal is $800. This will help me get caught up on essential bills and get and  (hopefully) stay out of the negative.

Some of you know I am unemployed due to a bad tailbone and back. My husband works out of town a lot, so he needs access to money regardless of how much is in the bank. Recently, we have had a string of financial bad luck and with bills and the bank's outrageous NSF fees, we are in a vicious circle of getting out of the red, and right back in again. I've had to swallow my pride and borrow money from my son (which I am still trying to pay back now.) He is understanding and patient in the slow repayment. Now I am swallowing my pride again and reaching out to you for help. This is so hard for me to do. Any amount is greatly appreciated. Thank you. 

I appreciate anything you can give and the moral support if you are unable.

If you are able to help and find any photos of mine you would like to have, please send me a PM with your email address along with the photo you like and I will send you a full res copy.

Alternatively, you can order photos from my account at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/patti-colston.html?tab=artwork

Thank you!

Live Like A Lotus Flower

“Every waking moment we talk to ourselves about the things we experience. Our self-talk, the thoughts we communicate to ourselves, in turn control the way we feel and act.”  ~ John Lembo

I realized this morning, after sharing some old self portraits on other social media outlets, that it had been quite a while since I shared one around here (not counting the good old SSP stuff).  So, after a little morning lotus pose and other asanas from my morning practice, I rolled down to my belly from lotus and shot this.

Yoga and going to the gym have become a big part of my lifestyle these days and if you couldn't tell by the look I have, it has been supremely good for me.

Normally, I would be so bundled with nerves from all the changes going on with work and back to school for the munchkin around the corner, but I am really taking it all in stride.  This type of mentality and self-talk really does make a difference.  For me, when I get stressed, I tend to let it snowball - it starts with one thing and then like some kind of poison, it spreads to other things in life.

Since putting my focus towards other things, more positive things, it just doesn't really effect me any more.  Or, at least not how it used to.

This was taken with my trusty cell phone (iPhone 4s) and with a little care and time to make sure it looked the way I wanted it to, I am sharing it with you all today.

Namaste and enjoy! ♥

Thanks For Loving My Face

So, I bet you all may be wondering what the heck this is... Well, it would be one of my mashes being used on a channel I follow on Twitch.tv.

+MMODen otherwise known as Limpy on the channel, plays/streams a lot of games I enjoy watching.  On top of that, he donates to puppy charities with the money he makes, he engages with his fan base, wears the craziest hats, and has an overall great personality to watch while gaming.  In addition to that, he has no qualms about even playing said games with his fan base either.

So how this mash-up came to be?  One of the hats he wears is very similar to the hat that Woody Harrelson wore as 'Tallahassee' in Zombieland.  A lot of viewers even remark at how much he looks like the character/actor, so I decided to warn him nicely that in honor of his channel going from MMODen to Limpy on Twitch, Iwas... more »

On Sunday, he was on air and pulled up his Twitter stream and caught a gander at it and found it most hilarious and awesomesauce.  So much, in fact, it is his current offline Twitch.tv channel image (as seen below).

And, in case you were wondering about the quote, when people follow him, he will say this comment or sometimes he says it on sign-off.

Anyway, it seemed like a perfect addition for +Movie Mashup Tuesday #moviemashuptuesday with +Mark Rodriguez and +Isabelle Fortin even if you aren't really seeing the full image.  However, if you do want to see it, just go over to https://twitter.com/QwerkyGirlArt/status/498507294976794625 and take a look.

It wasn't me, it was the 'otter' guy.

Another one of those fun moments where I crawled to my belly and probably 20 other positions to get this very real shot of an otter eating a fish in the slough preserve.  This guy was so uninterested in us and was right up by the path.  I mean, he was grubbing down and I left my 100mm lens on since he was that close.

I hope you all have an wonderful Sunday and Namaste! ♥

“The strongest love is the love that can demonstrate its fragility.” ― Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes


While out walking with +Patti Colston last Friday, I climbed down on my belly to capture this unfurling little fern-type plant.  It made me think about this quote as well.

My Life According to Me

Day 5 of the  #fivedayquest that I was tagged in by the shweetness +Isabelle Cardinal is the final glimpse to my week.  It is Friday, which meant another super charged workout with Josh (my trainer). 

The nice part about a Friday session is that it is in the morning when I am bursting with energy and feeling unstoppable.  It always begins with a solid breakfast and plenty of protein while I accomplish the house chores and get ready.  If you couldn't tell by now, I almost don't know how to function without multitasking.  Seriously, at this very moment I am editing, drinking my Amino Acids water in a Camelbak thermos so I don't have to use my hands, and I am creating this post!

In essence, I love to move or be moving (even in my mind).  Some of my tools for movement are below (in the image).  My mode of travel is by feet and when I am weight training, I keep the gloves on to lessen the calluses.  In some ways, I still want to be a delicate flower LOL!

For me, the motto is be strong, be beautiful - the beauty is in the strength.

So, on this Day 5, the final day of my quest, I share with you my essence.  I am a multitasking goddess of mind and body.  If I am not doing a million different things, I just don't feel like myself.  I am always learning, evolving, training, doing, creating and trying to be the best me I can be.  Love it or leave it, it is just me being me!

The Rituals of Sleep

Day 4 of the  #fivedayquest that I was tagged in by the awesomesauce +Isabelle Cardinal, which I was just so incredibly tired to post last night on G+ is about the rituals of sleep I find myself in at night.

As an extreme morning person, I really covet my sleep.  Even when it is only 5-6 hours, I still make sure they count by hitting a deep REM.  What can get me is when I hit the Wednesday/Thursday night and I am almost too exhausted physically or mentally to actually fall asleep.

10 hour work days plus a strict work-out schedule, meal planning, chores, responsibilities and everything in between means that I have to find ways to reach a peace in my mind to sleep.

What I resort to, when I really can't find that zen, is gentle meditation, some wonderful Yogi tea, and yoga wall poses where I rest my outstretched legs on the wall to promote good circulation for the heart, slow breaths and finally a quiet mind to reach my slumber.

So, on this Day 4 of my quest, I share with you my dedication to not only be steadfast in my waking practices, but also in the ones that take me to my nocturnal homeostasis.

Caring Is Sharing Helping Without Asking

Day 3 of the #fivedayquest that I was tagged in by the amazeballs +Isabelle Cardinal has me wanting to share a story that subsequently goes with the image and a pretty big aspect of my life.

To begin, I am going to share a morning story that is wrapped around the image below. 

Each morning, when I get to work, it is just the head maintenance/ facilities guy (Bill) and me when the doors open.  While he is running around the 3 story building getting the alarms shut down, opening up the offices and classrooms, I head into my office to set my lunch luggage down.  Normally, the responsibility of the break room in the morning is to the maintenance staff (sort of an unwritten rule that I think is lame).

Since the end of last year, I have taken it upon myself to help out in the morning.  I still hit the office and set my junk down, but afterwards, I help with turning on some of the lights on my floor, unlocking some offices and then I head to the break room to whip up pots of coffee and tidy up the room.  Even though I rarely drink coffee these days, I still don't mind.

It is not my "job" to do this, nor do I walk around exclaiming how I go above and beyond in the mornings to help out; I do this because I believe in a few things:

1. Helping is not hard to do.
2. Appreciation doesn't need to be expressed for me to feel good about what I do.
3. I consider being a decent human being a job for everyone and we don't need accolades for doing the right thing.

Honestly, this kind of thing has become second nature to me.  I don't even realize I do the things I do until I stop and really think about it.  Also, I do not consider sharing this story as a way to seek out praise because it isn't.  What I am sharing is an aspect of me that most in the internet world do not get to see.

The series of images are not about the conceptual photography or perfect shots or retouches, they are about the quest of me as a person striving to get through the imperfect world while being who I am.

So, on this Day 3 of my quest, I share with you a small glimpse into the compassionate and empathetic side to me.  The side that isn't as easily conveyed in the online world.  It is a part of me that close family and friends see, but I wanted to share with you.

Things you may never know
I care, I share, I laugh and I love
The sum of my parts are infinitely rare
I am what I know, I am what I dream
Endless possibilities, a universe is me.

Limber Up

Day 2 of the #fivedayquest that I was tagged in by the wondrous +Isabelle Cardinal led me to jokingly refer to Zombieland with the title, which ironically as it stands, I have been mashed into its poster a few times heh.  Being limber or flexible is something I have always been.  Not sure if it was gymnastics as a kid or just good genetics, but it has always been so.  Yoga helps to center my mind and my body, especially with a lot of the strength training I have been doing for over 3 months now. The weight training is amazing, but also works counter-productively to staying limber.

Weights are of an amazing benefit, but they do come at a bit of a price due to the microscopic tears that occur, which can allow for delayed onset muscle soreness for up to a week while they repair.  The muscle soreness can exhibit as stiffness, swelling, strength loss and pain, andtha... more »

Weights are of an amazing benefit, but they do come at a bit of a price due to the microscopic tears that occur, which can allow for delayed onset muscle soreness for up to a week while they repair.  The muscle soreness can exhibit as stiffness, swelling, strength loss and pain, and that is why I make yoga and recovery stretching part of my daily routine.

Pictured here, I am winding down after my morning recovery stretches.  Last night was a big night of running nearly 4 miles and my legs were tight, so I structured a recovery flow that focuses a lot on warming up the hamstrings and opening the hips.  Just for funsies, I also did a little shoulder work to open them up as well.

So yeah, that is what I do...

I stay limber in the mind and the body so that I can live a productive life and get through each day with a smile!

Copious

Day 1 of the #fivedayquest that I was tagged in by the wondrous +Isabelle Cardinal starts with copious , which is the only way to describe the amount of fluid (or water) I ingest daily.

For anyone who doesn't know me very well, here is a typical work day for me: 

1. Wake up at the butt crack of dawn (between 4:30 AM and 6:00 AM - depending on if it is a gym morning or not)
2. Get ready in a haphazard, kamikaze fashion (I am like a Tasmanian Devil except I leave a path of order and cleanliness behind).
3. Fly out the door to either the gym or the office.
4. Spend 10 hours in the office.
5. Head to the house or the gym (depending on my morning)
6. Go home to prepare to rinse and repeat until Thursday.

If you hadn't guess yet, I work four 10 hour days, and then have 3 days off.  While tethered to a desk for 10 hoursa... more »

If you hadn't guess yet, I work four 10 hour days, and then have 3 days off.  While tethered to a desk for 10 hours and working out close to 6 days a week, two days with my trainer, and the other 4 days solo, you can imagine the amount of hydration I need to keep the muscles happy.  Thus, I carry two coolers full of water and my lunches/daily snacks with me each day.  I can actually say, it looks like I live here on most occasions.

Pictured here, I have already consumed 4 bottles of water, a sports container full of protein OJ, and sitting in my trash was the disposable cup that had about 16 oz. of Rooibos tea in it - plus there is the one I am drinking now before the gym since I didn't go this morning.

So yeah, that is what I do...

Well, at least for this slice of my life today, that is!

What I might be

"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be." - Lao Tzu

Yesterday was kind of an amazing day.  It started off with a great back and shoulders rehab and recovery type workout with my new trainer (and pretty cool dude) Josh, who is helping me to slowly build up the muscles around my shoulders and back to avoid any further injuries to them.  Some people may know that I have a bum left shoulder and when I was training alone, I could tell I was doing things to irritate it and it was hindering my abilities.  That was when I knew I needed guidance to reach my goals.  I needed to surrender to the humbling need for help, which is not always easy for me to admit. 

However, I did.

After that great session, I met up with fellow G-plusser +Patti Colston for an impromptu  nature / photowalk at the Six Mile Slough Preserve.  Wespent a... more »

However, I did.

After that great session, I met up with fellow G-plusser +Patti Colston for an impromptu  nature / photowalk at the Six Mile Slough Preserve.  We spent around 3 hours talking and shooting and doing what is most important - making memories.

During this walk, Patti pointed out this lil dragonfly (damselfly) sitting on a leaf and I just had to try for the shot.  The coolest part was how the sun cast its shadow below it.  I loved the juxtaposition and duality to it.

It made me think about the quote I used above and about my own practices and mentality.

I hope you all have an amazing Sunday; as for now, I am off to go back into the big ole world and get things done.

Namaste! ♥

I Was Always A Little Exotic

Even back in the day, I had a love of animals of all kinds.  This was taken at Busch Gardens, Tampa, FL. on my first visit after we moved from New York.  I got to pet and play with so many animals that day and still have strong bond to them - domesticated and exotic - to this day.

"We bend so that we do not break." - Unknown

I know I have been more absent than present in the Google-sphere as of late, but that does not mean that I am not peeking in from time to time to converse over pictures or participate in projects and events; however, I am working on this new chapter in my life full of lots of great things.

I am training hard, practicing long, working to better my mind/heart and the people around me, and ultimately do what is best for me.  The most important thing about this journey is I am not giving up on anything I have set my mind to - I am just moving the chess pieces around to make it all work.

Certainly, I am never too far down the rabbit hole that I don't come up for some artistic air every now and then!

Namaste! ♥

The Chances of Life

"Everyday is a second chance to...."

You can fill in the blank to be whatever it means for you.  For me, it is a second chance or a first chance to do something that makes me happy!

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!

Do You Like What You See?

"We have to confront ourselves. Do we like what we see in the mirror? And, according to our light, according to our understanding, according to our courage, we will have to say yea or nay - and rise!" - Maya Angelou

Mirrors are interesting devices.  We look in them and see a reflection of our physical form.  We see our eyes and we see our expressions and we very much see what our shell looks like.  Sometimes, when we look, we see that our eyes look too close together, or that we have put on a few pounds; other times, we see beauty and perfection for all the things in their place.

I used to detest looking at myself and looking in mirrors because I let negativism rule over me.  I saw things that weren't where I wanted them to be to achieve physical beauty, and I saw extra pounds and skin as ugly.  Self portraits were clearlyout ... more »

I used to detest looking at myself and looking in mirrors because I let negativism rule over me.  I saw things that weren't where I wanted them to be to achieve physical beauty, and I saw extra pounds and skin as ugly.  Self portraits were clearly out of the picture and when I did take one for a Facebook or Myspace profile, I took hundreds before I found one in the fray that wasn't (in my mind) terrible.

So many years later, when considering this "in the mirror" self portrait for +Selfy Sunday , I reflected on the type of butterfly had emerged from that cocoon and decided to capture that in the way that seemed most fitting to me.

I shot this with my reflection in black Plexiglas and created a make-up look that emulated that butterfly style.

Now, when I look in the mirror, each day, I like what I see more and more.  No one can take that away from me!

Happy Sunday, Namaste, and I hope you enjoy! ♥
