Gailen Mapes64,908Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  G-H - 5 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 June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 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 Mapes2014-06-05 10:17:22181807CC G+

Georges Pauly14,521Thomas HawkShared publicly  -  30 Aug 2013 2500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 2 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Yesterday I shared last name A-Da.  This one , part 2 of 5, today, represents Da-Ho.  I'll share the remaining three next week.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 3, 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpn*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of domain errors.  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-01 19:56:06482204CC G+

Stephanie Calahan943FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 3 of 4My goal was to crowd-source a list of Fabulous Woman on G+ that are Actively posting and Engaging on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and , I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1384 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmFabulous Women on G+ Part 2 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/DRFwReXQvbFWhat You Can Do Now------------------------------------* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+If You Received Notification About this Circle--------------------------------------------------------------------If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified me or others in the circle as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  Original Post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/HHzp7g9aW9tI thought you would want to know that you have been identified as someone the G+ community should connect with!  I don't send out notifications unless it is 100% warranted. G+ Quirky Things to Note----------------------------------------* Google+ has a daily limit of 500 for adding people to your circles. If you haven't added 50 people or more today, you should be fine to add one of the circles daily.* When creating circles, you can only add 500 people a day (new) and that includes moving people around in existing circles.HOWEVER there have been2013-05-17 16:21:40353371128CC G+

Dawn Carl7,044In honor of International Women's Day..... I salute these women.   :)I have never actually shared a circle of my favorite peeps because I'm always afraid I'm gonna leave someone out...Which is going to happen actually, because I choose such a variety of people for so many different reasons.This circle is different.....These are the women I admire and follow the most here on G+.      Each one of them inspires me in their very own way, via Photography, Art,  Writing, or just their most excellent sense of humor that never fails to make me giggle.  Each one is different....each one is unique....and these are the best types of women who make the world go round and bring joy to my life each and every day!  Thank goodness they even interact with me,  as I'm sure all my questions of " how to " and " what if's " must drive them nuts sometimes...  :PTo all of you......Thanks for making my G+ experience one that totally ROCKS!!!2013-03-08 18:04:055111110CC G+

Jacob Dix20,708Mobile Photographers on G+This is my main circle of mobile photographers on G+. If you are receiving a notification about this post, you are in the circle. Please feel free to share this with others if you feel so inclined (whether limited or public).Some of these people are long time photographers and artists, some are just starting out. Some are amateur and some are professionals. Some post strictly mobile content, some a mix of everything. Some post daily, some sporadicly.What you will get with this circle is variety and to a large extent quality content in your stream. If a mobile photographer yourself, you'll find a great bunch of people to share common interests with.If you are not in the circleIf  you are not in the circle (meaning you have NOT received a notification of  the post), and you feel you should be in it for future circle shares (I'm careful about circle shares, so they don't come often), then you must do a couple things:1. Include a link in the comments below to a gallery of your work. This is required. I will not add just anyone.2. Plus 1 this post. Required.3. Share this so that other mobile photographers might see this. This is OPTIONAL. I make no one share my posts or circles to get in to them, and in fact think such a requirement is a ridiculous practice.4. If you wish to mention a mobile photographer other than yourself in the comments, please make sure that you view the circle and make sure they are NOT  already included. It is up to them to share a link to their work with me. This is also of course optional.Enjoy!2013-02-27 13:44:1020038839CC G+

My daughter, E, and I shot a series of photos last week to go with a song and to also go with a past fb status update of mine. The song was "Santa Monica", by Everclear (and there are already pics on here about that ... or a pic ... or something). The status update said something about the current state of my Sailor language and how I'd have to soon take to drinking cheap Scotch and smoking Pall Malls.

Two important details:

1. I don't smoke.
B. I do not - under any circumstances - drink cheap Scotch.

But somewhere, I picked up this visual of an elderly, kind of badass, woman in Florida, dressing however she wants, cussing a lot, and smoking Pall Malls while drinking cheap Scotch. That visual was too hard to pass up.

So, I dropped the $20 on a pack of Pall Malls (not really... more »

Lessons from the garden (and life)

1. Gardening is addictive. And not cheap. That being said, if you find a good local place (Southern Virginia) with rosemary, please let me know. Thanks!

B. In the last few weeks I have been called cold, snarky, authentic, awesome, a gypsy, cautious, bored, disconnected, intellectual (as an insult, which always confuses me), a hippie, cool, sweet, understanding, compassionate, empathetic, bitchy, a philosopher, buddha, a bullshitter, a rock, and some other things I've forgotten ... both good and bad.

It's all so complex and probably mostly bullshit (the really good and really bad, that is - the average is most likely accurate.) In the garden, it's simple: If it lives, I did good. If it dies, I f'd up.

God, I love simple.

3. For folks, like me, who live mostly in their heads, spending time with plants is pretty wonderful. It forces you to think about right now. They seem to grow in front of your eyes... if you don't appreciate this very moment, you'll totally miss it. Tomorrow morning, they'll be different. Remarkable.

(PS - The spider pic is here for two reasons: 1. It's a really pretty spider. 2. I am no longer terrified of spiders. I probably won't wreck if one descends in front of my face whilst driving. I have actually - calmly - relocated some spiders to more suitable places than my arm or leg or other close vicinity ... without hyperventilating or invoking the name of all known deities.

This is HUGE!)___

psyche

I read this today: "When you are certain that a photograph is not good, throw it in the bin. Tape the best ones higher on the wall, and eventually look at those only (keeping the not-so-good one gets you used to not-so-goodness). Only save the good ones, throw everything else away, because the psyche carries everything one keeps." ~Sergio Lerrain

It's about photography (obviously) but I think it can be applied to much of life. (Not all of life - like people. Remember, sometimes we ARE the bad ones. Yes, even you. Throwing away people is a different topic entirely.) 

I tend to get attached to things. Even things that don't work well anymore. (I once had a eulogy for an old hair brush. In its day, it had been a lovely brush. But it began to cut my scalp. Sadness...) More than things, I get attached to ways of thinking. Or, I just get used to... more »

Sadness...) More than things, I get attached to ways of thinking. Or, I just get used to ways of thinking... ways of seeing.

In art, that's deadly. So, I'm working on it. Working on looking at better art. Working on culling through my mediocre images and trashing them. All the while, working on clearing my psyche of the things I've kept that needed to be discarded. 

And, hopefully, since my art is an expression of myself, the process will clear out some not-so-good other stuff, too.

"This is a reminder that the most important promises are the ones you make to yourself.  Keep them." ~Lee Daniels

I will miss seeing new things through your eyes, Lee. And your spark, wisdom, humor, gracious words ... so many lovely words. And some pointed words. Your complexity - all of it - all that potential ... I will miss so very much.

Promises

Years ago, I'd made it a goal to someday enter the  BBC VEOLIA Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, but I never have.  I never thought I was good enough.  This year it occurred to me:  if not now, then when?  There might not be another "when."  So, on the last day at the eleventh hour, I quickly submitted 10 images.  Imagine how stunned I was when one of them made it to the final round of judging.  It was not a winner, but I could not have been happier.  My new cover photo is that image.    This is not about the image or me.   This is a reminder that the most important promises are the ones you make to yourself.  Keep them.

I will miss seeing new things through your eyes, Lee. And your spark, wisdom, humor, gracious words ... so many lovely words. And some pointed words. Your complexity - all of it - all that potential ... I will miss so very much.

returning
-------------------------------------------
“Many of us are returning from a long journey during which we were forced to search for things that were of no interest to us. Now we realize that they were false. But this return cannot be made without pain, because we have been away for a long time and feel that we are strangers in our own land. It will take some time to find the friends who also left, and the places where our roots and treasures lie. But this will happen.” ~Paulo Coelho

soul catching
----------------------------------------
“We have been moving along at such a fast pace that we no longer know what we are doing. Now we have to wait until our soul catches up with us.” ~Paulo Coelho 

Few things assist my soul in catching up with the rest of me like a long walk through a snowy wood. It's good stuff.

I reserve the right to change my mind...

After giving it some thought, I've decided I want this pic, instead.

Happy Sunday! ; )

Found some cool lines and light in the brier patch. Then, those dang briers tried to capture my right leg.

There's a life lesson in there somewhere, folks. Probably something about wearing thicker britches.

“Soon enough it will be me struggling (valiantly?) to walk - lugging my stuff around. How are we all so brave as to take step after step? Day after day? How are we so optimistic, so careful not to trip and yet do trip, and then get up and say O.K. Why do I feel so sorry for everyone and so proud?”  ~Maira Kalman

Wow, G+ ... kinda crazy about long posts, eh?

Just posted a pic with a lengthy write-up and the line count is now beside the "Read more". Because, y'know, we can't see the length of a post when we expand it.

I don't know why I'm kind of creeped out by that. But I am.

filters
-------------------------------------------
My daughter, E, and I shot a series of photos last week to go with a song and to also go with a past fb status update of mine. The song was "Santa Monica", by Everclear (and there are already pics on here about that ... or a pic ... or something). The status update said something about the current state of my Sailor language and how I'd have to soon take to drinking cheap Scotch and smoking Pall Malls.

Two important details:

1. I don't smoke.
B. I do not - under any circumstances - drink cheap Scotch.

But somewhere, I picked up this visual of an elderly, kind of badass, woman in Florida, dressing however she wants, cussing a lot, and smoking Pall Malls while drinking cheap Scotch. That visual was too hard to pass up.

So, I dropped the $20 on a pack of Pall Malls (not really... more »

But somewhere, I picked up this visual of an elderly, kind of badass, woman in Florida, dressing however she wants, cussing a lot, and smoking Pall Malls while drinking cheap Scotch. That visual was too hard to pass up.

So, I dropped the $20 on a pack of Pall Malls (not really $20 - but it felt like it. Egads!) and found some cheap bourbon in the pantry. (I couldn't waste money on cheap Scotch. Sorry.) Then, we dragged a footlocker down to a beach and confused the fisherman.

It was a glorious day.

I kept thinking I'd do a blog post. But I haven't yet. And I'm tired of waiting to post this shot just because I'm nervous about the smoking visual. People react strongly to the idea of others smoking. I get it. It's unhealthy. (And the smell permeates every durn thing ... srsly.) But, it's nothing to judge someone on.

And that's why I'm posting this here even though I kept thinking I wouldn't ... thinking I'd bury it in my blog post somewhere only my diehard peeps might scroll.

I don't like the filters we see folks through sometimes. Tattoos, cigarettes, high heels, Birkenstocks, granola, potato chips, hummus, fast food, Bud Light (fine, I'm kinda judge-y about Bud Light), sweet tea, Wranglers, yoga pants, Ford, Chevy (y'all be nice now)...

We size folks up based on the dumbest crap.

You know what I see about this pic? I see that my daughter stole my sunglasses, used them as a filter, and made a very compelling image. (Please note the Nikon reflection. That's cool.) I see that my bottom jaw juts out unattractively when I try to smoke. And I remember a very cool day that made room for all kinds of life convos between mom and daughter that weren't fueled by convincing one another that the filters we use to view the world are, unquestioningly, correct.

If you scroll past this shot and choose not to read the post with it, you might draw some wrong conclusions. That's life-y. Image management is a big deal. (And it was a big deal LONG before social media. Don't even...) Who is deciding what the goal of our personal image management is? How do we know whether or not what we think we portray is actually what others see ... or even care about seeing?

I don't know. I do know I've been totally surprised by the reactions to smoking. And I'm totally stoked about the images E and I were able to make together. Discomfort, nervousness, excitement, creative satisfaction ... all in one experience.

Edit for G+: My Facebook crowd is quite different from my G+ crowd. A lot of the stuff about being judge-y regarding stupid crap relates to my local folks (rural Southern US). BUT ... I'm sure there's stupid crap the rest of us are judge-y about. So, fill in the appropriate blanks with your own shiz. Thanks!
