Margaret Tompkins30,121>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 25,000 Followers>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>The photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  *There are NO requirements to share this circle*.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Each has < 25,000 followers (when they were put into the circle), and most have between 10,000 and 25,000 followers.  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandscapePhotography  theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you! #Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2012-10-08 18:04:38500337118265
Peter From46,398The NEW Visual Artists Circle –– Circle Post  | READ ALL Before You Ask For Inclusion#CircleSharingForThePeopleVACbBy now you all know that I've emptied all shared circles in order to bring some more freshness and interestingness into them again. So this new validated edition of the VAC is all hot and fresh and you will have an excellent feed of brilliant artwork in your feed when you add this very popular circle. I am proud to promote each and every artist in it. Many of the artists in this circle are better than some of the professional ones that I have come across here on Google+.Want in? READ the WHOLE post BEFORE you ask for inclusion.What is the VAC?It is a circle for people that love art and consider it their passion in life.Who can join?Everybody. You don't need to be particularly good or bad –– as long as you have a profound interest in visual arts and MAINLY share your own work in your feed.What must you do?As with all my circles, there are no free rides. Here are the rules (steps you must take) to get added:1) –– Plus AND reshare this post. Why? It's very simple: if you want to get promoted in this circle, you must be prepared to promote your fellow artist as well. Do NOT remove the reshared circle post from your feed immediately after I have added you to the circle. Doing so will get you banned from all my future circle shares.2) –– Make sure that you do NOT post a lot of YouTube clips, animated GIF's, blog post teasers etc. in your feed. I don't mind a few reshares of other people's work but you must mainly share your own original work on your page. I want ths circle to be as clean as possible and focus on great artwork –– not other bling-bling. 3) –– Ask for inclusion in the comments and please state that you HAVE completed all steps. I will check every feed but I won't check twice.Have something to say about my circles? Wanna know what others gained from being in the circles? Then go here: https://plus.google.com/116219534929662479848/posts/7Evg2rSE2Hv NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the circle. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this announcement post and let me know that you did so.This announcement post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeopleAPCb so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post in the future. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares. Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/Cheers!2012-10-08 12:53:4215310987115

Peter Fraterdeus867For your Google+ enjoyment ;-) This circle has people who post about art.I haven't seen all of the posts, or know the people, but they've been curated into the original circle by the person who initially shared the circle.It's a good way to get something of value into your home 'stream'. If you want to follow a particular person, you can add them to your own circles.You can always remove this circle, or edit how much of the content from that circle shows up in your stream...2012-09-17 11:53:54216807

Gailen Mapes13,362Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera L-Q - 4 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. I have had to split some circles because they exceeded 500 members.I am now sharing one circle per day, for the reason see: https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/posts/RrPNTzHhQuHAs before these circles are photographers that I admire. They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to August 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 1st.)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/about2012-08-18 11:00:4341411111

Grayson Hartman22,725BIG THANKS TO ALL +Fire Friday CONTRIBUTORS!CIRCLE SHARE OF THE FIRST 503 CONTRIBUTORS TO #FIREFRIDAY Since nearly the beginning of Daily Photography Themes (DPT) on G+, FireFriday has been a place for people to share photographs of anything fire related.  I've had the pleasure of meeting some great people through this DPT and have been absolutely inspired by you all.  I've enjoyed the different takes on the subject and continue to look forward to more of your outstanding contributions to FireFriday.  Also, due to the limit of 500 in a circle-share, the pages +Wandering Shutterbug and +Prometheus Imaging were left out of the circle unfortunately, but your contributions are no less appreciated.  It was the only way I could share the whole circle.Fire Friday:  Anything fire goes-from a wildfire, to a tip of a match shot macro, to even smoke from a fire, fire houses, fire hydrants and fire hoses.

Suspense

This one is an oldie-but-goodie favorite of mine from about 15 years ago... I remember now that it was rainy all day.  I was disappointed that scenic vistas were a wash... so I decided I would size down my scope of view and look for some random bits of color and interest.  

This was shot at Red Falls, NY, in the Catskill Mountain region.  The falls are the bits of white in the background, and I never even took a shot of them as they were so flat with mist and too strong of a rush.  Good thing I stopped and took a closer look :)

Just wanted to share this album again.....well that's not accurate, I want to share it with so many of the new wonderful followers I've come to know and share things with over this past year.  Many of these images were posted when I had but a few hundred followers and now that I have well over 10K of you kind folks viewing my work, I wanted to say thank you and invite you to make any of these reflections to be your autumn wallpaper....

While I understand that so many of us are struggling to sell prints or get recognized, I'm arriving at a point where I think I'd rather know my work made someone gasp or sigh, or maybe put a simple smile on their face when they have the chance to glimpse one of my images full of color and joy.

Because that's what this is really all about..... Joy .....
And I know I can't fathom anyone of your emotions like I... more »

Had the pleasure of seeing +Michaela McClain  perform live a few nights ago at The Crossroads in Garwood, NJ.   It didn't take much more than her intro and the first few moments of her performance to sum it all up for me: It was as if someone took Norah Jones and Corinne Bailey Rae, and introduced them to a double dose of fun.

Last Walk of the Mountain Man

Bradley Tennyson, Autumn, 2009

    I've spent a good part of the last decade or so wandering a few places in the southern Adirondacks of New York State and have met some really great people.  A friend of mine, Greg, who owns Atateka Lodges in Chestertown, would always tell me stories of this old gent that he knew from years ago.  While riding around locally, he had pointed out what looked like a small shanty on a hillside of property on a quiet road....it was slowly falling to pieces, but not enough to give the impression that it wasn't cared for the best the owner could.  You could still see an old car with some odd attachments alongside the house, and there were some small remnants of plantings.  As a teen Greg had sold his car to Bradley for about $300, and though he didn't ever drive, he figured he could use the body as ahousi... more »

Last Walk of the Mountain Man

Bradley Tennyson, Autumn, 2009

    I've spent a good part of the last decade or so wandering a few places in the southern Adirondacks of New York State and have met some really great people.  A friend of mine, Greg, who owns Atateka Lodges in Chestertown, would always tell me stories of this old gent that he knew from years ago.  While riding around locally, he had pointed out what looked like a small shanty on a hillside of property on a quiet road....it was slowly falling to pieces, but not enough to give the impression that it wasn't cared for the best the owner could.  You could still see an old car with some odd attachments alongside the house, and there were some small remnants of plantings.  As a teen Greg had sold his car to Bradley for about $300, and though he didn't ever drive, he figured he could use the body as a housing for his chicken's, and so turned the Oldsmobile into a custom chicken coop : )
     Every single day, Bradley was known to walk into town from his home, about a 2+ mile trek over a moderate mountain ridge, to say hello, get some supplies and hear some news.  The story goes that Bradley didn't even have or want power to his home and fought it until sometime in the 1990s when his family insisted he have it for safety along with a phone, being that he lived alone for so long.  It's also been said that he's a descendant of Lord Alfred Tennyson, but I'm not sure how I could go about looking into that (so if anyone is a history sleuth..please comment!)

In the Autumn of 2009, I went to see a piece of property with Greg, and sure enough we began to speak of Bradley once again, wondering if he was still around, out walking that last leg of the road, on his trek back from town in the evening.  After our visit to the lot I wanted to see, we made the trek back down the road and up ahead I saw a man materialize and sure enough, it was Bradley.  I was overjoyed to meet the man I had heard so much about.  Sadly age had begun to get the better of him and he had trouble recognizing Greg, who had known him for decades, but we all exchanged an old story or two which seemed to comfort him, and he was kind enough to give me his best solemn pose.  We parted ways, Bradley refusing a quick ride the rest of the short way to his house, and me lost in thought about someone who had seen 90+ years of a simple quiet life.
     I found out the following year that Bradley had fallen ill and has since passed on, but every ride down that road evokes the solitude of the last walk of the mountain man.

Something worth sharing...

If anyone would like to help the Red Cross efforts in NJ, this 20x30 canvas print is being raffled for the price of $5 a ticket.. All proceeds are for the Red Cross, and we were lucky enough to obtain sponsors that would match all cash donations...Coke and Weather Channel.

Yesterday, we were able to send a truckload of food, clothing and water to Union Beach, NJ...one of the hardest hit areas regarding entire loss of homes.....

Very proud to have met (if only through your car window) all those that stopped a moment to donate cash and say a kind word.  Your kindness has been unbelievable!  

As for my internet friends that were so gracious to use the below link to purchase a raffle ticket..... you're the best!
Thank you ♥ :)

Anyone have some insight on portable lighting, mainly multi compact fluorescent units, possibly with a softbox?  I can't seem to narrow down a good buy and any help would be appreciated.  Thanks :)

Swept Away

Hello all of my friends here on G+ .....while the majority of my friends and family are safe...many are still without power and some without heat here in central New Jersey.

While I've seen and have been told of quite a few acts of uncaring and inhumanity, I know that there are many folks out there who have done the most that they can to help others.  There is a weekend-long item collection and fundraiser (Red Cross) I am participating in this weekend and I am donating the image below to be raffled off.  The finished piece is a 20" x 30" stretch canvas.  If you know anyone in the central NJ area that would like to take a chance and stop by the event, please share this post or link anywhere you'd like:
http://www.facebook.com/events/457101641009262/

If you need more information, feel free to message me here or on FB.... more »

Ok this shot just blew me away.... taken by +Matt Anderson...his work is phenomenal..... you must see it!

Fall leaves have changed their color
Winter's on its way
I hear the wicked cold winds call me
They say, don't fly away
Drink the warm wines, Feel the heat from a fire's blaze
You take a long walk in those lonely Winter days
Winter's cold winds call me
Gonna leave it all behind
Drink the warm wines, Feel the heat from a fire's blaze
Gonna leave it all behind

Suspense

This one is an oldie-but-goodie favorite of mine from about 15 years ago... I remember now that it was rainy all day.  I was disappointed that scenic vistas were a wash... so I decided I would size down my scope of view and look for some random bits of color and interest.  

This was shot at Red Falls, NY, in the Catskill Mountain region.  The falls are the bits of white in the background, and I never even took a shot of them as they were so flat with mist and too strong of a rush.  Good thing I stopped and took a closer look :)

Just wanted to share this album again.....well that's not accurate, I want to share it with so many of the new wonderful followers I've come to know and share things with over this past year.  Many of these images were posted when I had but a few hundred followers and now that I have well over 10K of you kind folks viewing my work, I wanted to say thank you and invite you to make any of these reflections to be your autumn wallpaper....

While I understand that so many of us are struggling to sell prints or get recognized, I'm arriving at a point where I think I'd rather know my work made someone gasp or sigh, or maybe put a simple smile on their face when they have the chance to glimpse one of my images full of color and joy.

Because that's what this is really all about..... Joy .....
And I know I can't fathom anyone of your emotions like I could my own, and vice versa, but I know how great it feels to be mentioned by someone who loves or shares my work, as I would guess others have felt if I did the same for them...but the truth is I can't put into (my own) words the changes that have overcome me as part of all of this sharing and growing.... so I'll close with these lyrics that I'm sure anyone who enjoys the beauty of emotions and the mystery of relating to one another, will truly understand......
(and give it a listen if you have access to it....reallly wonderful)

Stockton Gala Days ~ 10,000 Maniacs

"That summer fields grew high with foxglove stalks and ivy. 
Wild apple blossoms everywhere. 
Emerald green like none I have seen apart from dreams that escape me. 
There was no girl as warm as you. 

How I've learned to please, to doubt myself in need, 
You'll never, you'll never know. 

The summer fields grow high. 
We made garland crowns in hiding, pulled stems of flowers from my hair. 
Blue in the stream like none I have seen apart from dreams that escape me. 
There was no girl as bold as you. 

How I've learned to please, to doubt myself in need, 
You'll never, you'll never know. 
You'll never know. 

Violet serene like none I have set apart from dreams that escape me. 
There was no girl as warm as you. 

How I've learned to please, to doubt myself in need. 
You'll never, you'll never know. 
You'll never know. 

That summer fields grow high. 
We had wildflower fever. 
We had to lay down where they grow. 

How I've learned to hide, how I've locked inside, you'd be surprised if shown. 
But you'll never, you'll never know."___

Sometimes the heart of the matter is best viewed from a distance...

We spent this past weekend travelling in the Catskill Mountains of New York.  Much to my surprise, booking a place in the heart of this region didn't afford any of the vast views I'm used to in the Adirondacks....luckily, from the parking lot of Kaaterskill Falls there was a quick glimpse of the mountains we had just circled through by car.  Sure there were quiet colorful roads to wander to soothe the soul, but the best vantage points seem to be in the surrounding hilltowns, well out of the Park's borders....

So...... Have you been to the Catskills?  If so, do you have a favorite scenic road or hike you like to take?  Let's talk about it!

Who knows what I could be missing

So you're sitting in the classroom at about 11 years of age and usually being a good student and well behaved, you find yourself not paying attention....only it's not you who realizes this at the time, but your teacher.  So, you get scolded here and there for a few weeks and eventually wind up sitting in the front of the class.  It takes a few more days of you seeming uninterested all of a sudden, but then something scribbled on the chalkboard doesn't seem so clear and finally, the teacher notices that you might be squinting.

"I think you need to go see the nurse..." could only mean that they had figured it out....it was time for glasses.  So you dread the visit, knowing you'll be directed to cover one eye and the other, trying to read from a chart of incongruous letters, only to be advised with a note for yourfo... more »

Who knows what I could be missing

So you're sitting in the classroom at about 11 years of age and usually being a good student and well behaved, you find yourself not paying attention....only it's not you who realizes this at the time, but your teacher.  So, you get scolded here and there for a few weeks and eventually wind up sitting in the front of the class.  It takes a few more days of you seeming uninterested all of a sudden, but then something scribbled on the chalkboard doesn't seem so clear and finally, the teacher notices that you might be squinting.

"I think you need to go see the nurse..." could only mean that they had figured it out....it was time for glasses.  So you dread the visit, knowing you'll be directed to cover one eye and the other, trying to read from a chart of incongruous letters, only to be advised with a note for your folks....and you know what it says....you can already hear the names being called out across the playground...

So Mom takes you for a visit to the eye doctor....and if the horror of wearing glasses isn't enough to swallow at that age, you're handed a book filled with colored dots of all shapes and sizes.  Being a kid it looks exciting...so vibrant...and "oooh look at this...looks like this is the easiest test I've ever been handed"...until you keep looking....and realize it doesn't look like anything at all.  The confusion builds to a crescendo as you look to your mom who has a grim look on her face, and hear the doctor say the words "colorblind" for the first time.

It's an odd impairment.....sometimes not seeming apparent at all, other times, wondering what you could be missing out on.... it's impossible to fathom what someone else might see or perceive and not wonder if you're being tricked or deceived by what your eyes are showing your brain.

To all my fellow visual artists out there who've experienced this, I share this old favorite autumn photo of mine that started it all for me.  I took this photo about 15 years ago and rarely a day passes that I don't reflect on it and feel it driving me to savor every glimpse of color I'm afforded.... I'm just afraid of what I might be missing....

A great circle of Visual Artists created thru the efforts +Peter From

If you are passionate about art, look into this circle and add some new talent to your stream.

The NEW Visual Artists Circle –– Circle Post  | READ ALL Before You Ask For Inclusion

#CircleSharingForThePeopleVACb

By now you all know that I've emptied all shared circles in order to bring some more freshness and interestingness into them again. So this new validated edition of the VAC is all hot and fresh and you will have an excellent feed of brilliant artwork in your feed when you add this very popular circle. I am proud to promote each and every artist in it. Many of the artists in this circle are better than some of the professional ones that I have come across here on Google+.

Want in? READ the WHOLE post BEFORE you ask for inclusion.

What is the VAC?
It is a circle for people that love art and consider it their passion in life.

Who can join?
Everybody. You don't need to be particularly good or bad –– as long as you have a profound interest in visual arts and MAINLY share your own work in your feed.

What must you do?

As with all my circles, there are no free rides. Here are the rules (steps you must take) to get added:

1) –– Plus AND reshare this post. Why? It's very simple: if you want to get promoted in this circle, you must be prepared to promote your fellow artist as well. Do NOT remove the reshared circle post from your feed immediately after I have added you to the circle. Doing so will get you banned from all my future circle shares.

2) –– Make sure that you do NOT post a lot of YouTube clips, animated GIF's, blog post teasers etc. in your feed. I don't mind a few reshares of other people's work but you must mainly share your own original work on your page. I want ths circle to be as clean as possible and focus on great artwork –– not other bling-bling. 

3) –– Ask for inclusion in the comments and please state that you HAVE completed all steps. I will check every feed but I won't check twice.

Have something to say about my circles? Wanna know what others gained from being in the circles? Then go here: https://plus.google.com/116219534929662479848/posts/7Evg2rSE2Hv 

NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the circle. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this announcement post and let me know that you did so.

This announcement post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeopleAPCb so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post in the future. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares. 

Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/

Great Photographers With < 25,000 Followers
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  *There are NO requirements to share this circle*.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  

Each profile has been verified by me.  Each has < 25,000 followers (when they were put into the circle), and most have between 10,000 and 25,000 followers.  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  

Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandscapePhotography  theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.

I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!

There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!
