Andreas Horn3,833Morgen startet ein kleines Projekt von mir! Es heißt "Die Weltverbesserer". Zum Projektstart lade ich euch ganz herzlich heute in einen Hangout über mein neues Projekt ein. Ihr könnt euch dort über das Projekt informieren, Fragen stellen und dann entscheiden, ob ihr mitmachen wollt. *Um was es bei dem Projekt geht:* Ziel des Projekts ist es eine Community zu erstellen, die eine Art Diskussionsforum ist, in dem wir uns unsere Ideen für eine bessere Welt vorstellen wollen und diese dann zusammen diskutieren und weiterentwickeln wollen. Die besten daraus entstehenden Ideen werden wir dann auf einem Blog veröffentlichen und so hoffentlich in die Welt verbreiten. Du hast eine Idee, die die Welt etwas besser machen kann oder möchtest Ideen weiterentwickeln? Stell deine Idee bei uns vor! Alles was du tun musst ist dich bei unserer Community "Die Weltverbesserer" anzumelden. *Das Projekt startet offiziell morgen am 1.Mai 2013*. Man kann sich aber bereits heute anmelden! _Sei dabei und mache die Welt ein klein bisschen besser!_ *Ich freu mich auf euch*Die Weltverbesserer Projektstart2013-04-30 20:30:006

Happy Birthday Baby

I've been on Google+ since 2012 and have participated in many great themes, to mention a few, +Leading Lines Monday, +#Window Wednesday & +SacredSunday™.

Many theme pages have become Communities here on Google+ and others have gone by the wayside. Sending a special thanks to the curators of the pioneer themes who blazed the trail in the infancy of Google+.

Never one to embrace the latest technology, but rather wait and watch until it’s somewhat proven, thus I have been a bit slow to join lots of communities and start collections. However, since Google+ is my favorite platform due to the depth and breath of the magnificent & diverse creative community, I decided it’s is high time to embrace the change.

Recently I started moving my work to Google+ Collections and find the structure somewhat similar to albums. Whether you are a poet, musician, painter, chef, videographer, photographer, illustrator, novelist or tech wizard. Google+ Collections is a great way to categorize and share your creations in categories with like-minded people.

Several nifty features about Google+ Collections; you can post to a collection, move older posts to a collection & remove a post from a collection.

My latest collection: Abstract

Run for Little Hearts ❤
Wait for me dad......

http://runforlittlehearts.com/

I had the opportunity to photograph this race over the weekend to benefit CHD and was very touched by this precious little girl who could not have been more than two years old competing in the Kid's Dash. Her dad was just ahead of her, holding his hand out and she was reaching the whole way to finish line.

What is CHD?
