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 December 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting November 7th.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit.

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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-01-02 11:22:54129011

Gailen Mapes67,369Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera B - 2 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 September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 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 +2014-09-02 10:32:301409416

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 23:16:1649012223

Gailen Mapes63,421Hand Picked Photographers Circles -Canon Camera  B - 2 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to May 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting April 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-05-03 11:04:101405310

From a recent shoot with Darion Jones and Alexiss Ryann. This was one of those photoshoots where nearly every snap I took was ready to be made into a beautiful photograph.

I'd love to do a round 2.

I find things that are in the act of blossoming to be just as amazing and beautiful as things that have blossomed.

There is hope in that state. There is potential. There is something magical and inspiring.

And I am not just talking about plants, but human beings as well. I think most parents know what I am talking about.

There were many kinds of love. The word had almost lost any meaning. But they knew what it meant, because it meant the same thing to each other. And they whispered this meaning in the evenings, and sang it's meaning in the mornings. And screamed it's meaning in the hard times, and danced closely it's meaning to say sorry for the screaming.

There were many kinds of love. But they knew what it meant.

It meant the same thing to each other.

His Story In The Eyes

Something powerful in Darion's eyes on this photograph.  During recent indoor shoot, I had Darion stand directly in front of one of the lights for one of the shots.  I really like the result.

When I was at the South Coast Botanical Garden today, where you can buy my signed prints fyi, I found out this little guy I photographed will turn into a Monarch butterfly.

That is amazing but then I realized we turn into things, too. We blossom, we evolve. And some of us will even learn to fly.

Good luck with your own beautiful transformation.

A Good Day A Bad Day A Sad Day Or What

insecure about her knees
and what the rest of the big world sees
and her feet, her back and thighs
embarrassed to be in front of noticing eyes
is it a good day a bad day a sad day or what
she wants to know, do these jeans fit my butt
screw it, she says, and decides instead
to go back to bed and cover her head

life is like one of those little tiny marble in a maze games where you have to tilt the game forwards, backwards, left, or right, to get the marble to follow the correct path around the maze and to the middle. 

from the marble's perspective, it feels often that it's going backwards, or bumping into walls unneccessarily, but it's necessary for the marble to travel this kind of pathway to get where it needs to be.

we think of our life's journey incorrectly when we imagine a straight path, even if we picture an uphill battle.

when you feel like that marble, being sent backwards instead of forwards, bouncing into a wall instead of rolling smoothly forward, just remember that life is just tilting itself to guide you where you need to go.

go with the flow, and stay positive.  you are heading in the right direction, any direction you're going.more »

Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra took the famous V-J Day photograph of a sailor kissing a woman (http://goo.gl/N0CbD) and put it on a large building in New York, in his own vibrant stunning way.

I thought it would be fun to turn his work back into a photograph, in my own way.

I love art.

did you ever take the train without a ticket
did you ever dance underneath the summer rain
have you ever tried forgiveness for no reason
when you have you will never be the same

When I was a child I would lay in bed imagining Jesus Christ appearing in my room, or perhaps an angel on his behalf, to reveal himself as a bright light. I would make this as real as possible with all the power of a child's imagination. Deals were offered to God but nothing happened.

When I was a teenager I would lay in bed imagining a beautiful woman appearing in my room revealing herself in all her earthly carnal glory. I would make this as real as possible with all the power of a young man's desperate mind. Deals were offered to the Devil but nothing happened.

Now I just lay in bed imagining sleep.

I like to keep my life simple.

Or rather, I would like to.

At least I get to reset myself every night. Each sunset bringing the chance of renewed dreams.

Do not underestimate the power of positive thoughts. Of wishing others well. Of praying for each other, regardless to whom you are praying.

There's probably someone even right now who could use those good wishes.

Perhaps even you.

Upon the drawing near, Upon the ending day,
Upon the setting sun, dimming but still dynamic and hued;
A thought. A single, simple, thought moves across the mind.
Painting a light trail with the glow of a tiny flickering flame,
The mind now renewed, restored yet again.

I am not into clown photographs, but people liked the one yesterday so much that I had to do one more. This guy is creepier than yesterday's. And he wasn't trying to be. And the craziest part is children still approached him for a balloon, despite looking like he had a few kids in a closet somewhere.

Sometimes I feel like I don't know.. like a vibrant kick to the head.

Better to see colors with a headache than a rainbow in greyscale instead.
