Offbeat Images538You are cordially invited to enter ONE, ORIGINAL“offbeat” image in our second @110612893892240360557 "Blue Ribbon" Gallery contest. [Our event cover image is courtesy of @108347134468694009774]  At @110612893892240360557, we define “Offbeat”, as "Off the Beaten Path", unconventional, or uncommon - NOT TO BE CONFUSED with silly, mocking, outrageous, vulgar or in bad taste. THE LIST BELOW HELPS TO CLARIFY WHAT WE'RE ABOUT.  Many of you will find that you are already doing this!  This is a home for highly skilled photographers / digital artists to showcase their art gallery quality images. Here are some examples of offbeat images that we are looking for: 1.    Everyday subjects turned into art - such as peeling paint, doors, windows, broken glass, colorful bottles, etc. - let your imagination soar 2.    Striking shadows, lines and reflections found in buildings, stairwells, sidewalks, windows, water, nature, lakes, rivers, etc. 3.    Unique antiques, architecture, bridges, alleyways, etc. 4.    Decayed, rusty, or worn objects, buildings, etc. 5.    Interesting urban / street images 6.    Interesting night images 7.    Abstract images 8.    Engaging portraits 9.    Landscapes, flowers, plant life, nature, etc. that have been uniquely captured and post-processed  - colors pushed, HDR, blur techniques, textures, painting, layering, etc. (We ARE NOT looking for traditional flowers and landscapes) 10.   Engaging post-processing techniques (NO RAW PHOTOS, PLEASE - some people will use lesser post-processing in their images - while others will make a point of producing complex digital art with advanced techniques) 11.   Monochrome / Black and White images that possess the applicable attributes above Remember: these are just examples. Unleash your creativity!  Help us make "Offbeat Images" a destination for unique, high-quality works created by skilled photographers / digital artists! ***************************************************  Here’s how to participate: 1) Circle our Offbeat Images "Blue Ribbon" Gallery theme page and each of our owners and curators. 2) Accept this contest event invitation and submit ONE original (i.e., created and owned by you) image that you have either previously shared publicly on Google+ or one that you have created recently and would like to share--first, with us in our contest. (Be sure to share only a single image--not an album, and enable comments on your post.) 3) Visit the contest event page and plus and comment on the work of the other contestants. (There will be an honor and special post on the theme page for the image with the most "+1s" at the end of each contest.)  4) Invite other digital photographers/artists, who have an affinity for "offbeat" images, to participate in the contest event. 5) Look for winner announcements and future contest event invitations in your stream.  _________________________ CONTEST RULES:  -- You may submit ONE ORIGINAL "offbeat" piece of digital photography or aOffbeat Images "Blue Ribbon" Gallery Contest - ENDED ON 8/222014-08-16 00:30:0085 
Offbeat Images538THIS CONTEST ENDED ON 8/15/14 Introducing the Offbeat Images "Blue Ribbon" Gallery Contest – the bi-weekly, Google+ digital photography and art competition dedicated to honoring images (and the digital artists) that celebrate the magic and wonder found in ordinary places, spaces and things.   You are cordially invited to show off YOUR best “offbeat” image (and digital art skills)  in our inaugural contest. [You can ONLY SUBMIT ONE IMAGE.]  What is considered an "offbeat" image?  It's not a traditional landscape, portrait, or macro digital photography image. (In other words, you probably won't find one on a travel poster, art gallery wall or flower theme page.)  An "offbeat" image is an original, unconventional, high-quality (i.e., not raw, but very well composed and thoughtfully processed) piece of digital photography or art that captures the glory of often overlooked items and areas in our world. For example:  Peeling old paint, Candid or unconventional portraits, Striking or abstract shadows and/or reflections in buildings or things, Interesting or unique antiques, Narrow alleyways, Far off Main Street urban scenes, Fallow farms or old tractors, Stormy skyscapes or unusual clouds, Dried river beds, Broken windows, Abandoned factories, Beaches in winter, Overgrown paths or trails, Fields of wildflowers, Seldom used roadways, Weedy gardens, Decayed, worn or rusty objects ... The examples above are merely a guide to what some might consider ordinary things and spaces. The everyday world has lots of ordinary things and spaces that--with an artist's touch, could be captured and crafted to look or feel extraordinary. That said, PLEASE DON'T SUBMIT the following: -  Unprocessed or raw photos (no "Instagram" or snapshots) -  Images lacking thoughtful composition, lighting, focal point, color or tone balance, perspective, or cropping. ("Offbeat" by our standard doesn't mean silly, shocking, or mocking in nature. This is a serious contest for serious artists looking to express their artistic vision.) -  Landscapes/skyscapes/seascapes  (Unless you have used additional processing, such as HDR, selective focus, textures, etc.) -  Macro shots of flowers or bugs (Unless you have used additional processing, such as HDR, selective focus, textures, etc.) So ... set your artistic self free: Create your "offbeat" images with THINGS AND SPACES FOUND IN YOUR EVERYDAY WORLD that capture your eye, meet our definition and deserve our attention.  Thanks again for your participation. _______________________ Here’s how to participate: 1) Circle our Offbeat Images "Blue Ribbon" Gallery theme page and each of our owners and curators. 2) Accept this contest event invitation and submit ONE original (i.e., created and owned by you) image that you have either previously shared publicly on Google+ or one that you have created recently and would like to share--first, with us in our contest.

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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 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             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-30 11:33:31198000

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             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-10-30 10:40:46201002

Escape
Great Weekend Peeps

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.  -Marcus Aurelius

Hugh Laurie - Unchain My Heart (from Ocean Way Studios)

My second share for #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge   , thanks so much +Amy Myers  for inviting me to participate :-)

+Leo Deegan my new friend, would you like to try your hand at black and white? The challenge is to post a black & white photo, any genre, brand new or old and reprocessed (or processed for the first time) and invite someone new to play each day. Of course, it is completely optional

Daniel & Lina
Gift of Life

I recently took time to visit my father’s grave-site with my aging mother, we find consolation, peace and closure in spending some quite time with dad in this way.  When leaving the cemetery I came across this grave-site, and was quite touched that Lina had brought her husband’s work boots out at harvest time to help him continue his journey of life after death. I sensed a deep love between this man and woman, without ever having met them.  Have a beautiful Monday and cherish the Gift of Life.

Good News

Kudos to Firestone for what can be done to stop Ebola.  I rarely post news stories, but this one was so good in light of current misinformation and panic, I could not resist.  Enjoy the weekend.
