Gailen Mapes78,660Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera W-Z - 13 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 February 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting January 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   #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.2015-02-13 18:01:2584003

Dubie Bacino116,401Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino (14th Edition)This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is inspiring content that will enhance your Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------When it comes to #CircleSharing , my practice is to share two of my circles every month:  - ENGAGERS: this is a way of saying thank you to those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content. If you want me to notice you, be active in one or all of my communities (see below).-----------------------------------------To connect with me -@Opajdara, the best place is my appearoo page: http://appearoo.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/ -----------------------------------------If you are on #TSU , connect with me: https://www.tsu.co/opajdara.

Their nest lined delicately with spider silk, Ugandan Discothyrea mixta worker ants tend to brood. Little is known about the biology of these tiny ants; they are presumed to be arthropod egg predators, and eggs of several species- perhaps spiders or centipedes- are visible in this photo.

January 1st is not only a new year, it is also Public Domain Day, the day that (in some countries) older creative works become freely available for anyone to use. In honor of the day, and since my photos wouldn't otherwise become public domain until 2100 or so, I am prematurely releasing a few of my older captures.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:ListFiles?limit=15&user=Alex+Wild&ilshowall=1

Enjoy!

January 1st is not only a new year, it is also Public Domain Day, the day that (in some countries) older creative works become freely available for anyone to use. In honor of the day, and since my photos wouldn't otherwise become public domain until 2100 or so, I am prematurely releasing a few of my older captures.

Enjoy!

I am very pleased to announce the 2014 holiday print sale! I have priced 30 selected photographs, including a number of new pieces, at 70% off. That's just $3.99 for a 5x7".

Here is the link: http://www.alexanderwild.com/Art/Holiday-Print-Sale-2014/n-zjRMX/

As you may know, I am beginning an academic job in January and the photo business is reverting to a sideline. I will continue to make prints available on my site, but this may be the last organized, near-cost sale for a good while.

This illuminating case of National Geographic bullying a science artist whose work was used without permission or payment on a Nat Geo cover should serve as a reminder that large organizations, even those with a public face of social responsibility, are more concerned about their profits than they are about ethics. Nat Geo explicitly threatens to bankrupt their victim for pursuing the matter:

"Based on the obstacles and costs you would face to bring this to trial, resolving the issue through negotiation seems the most cost effective way to settle the matter.".

Shame, National Geographic. You were once a friend to photographers.
