Gailen Mapes72,604Hand 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 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. 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.2014-12-02 11:40:22131001

Gailen Mapes66,656Hand 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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 +2014-08-03 10:56:321353410

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

Hummingbirds may be tiny, but their brains are much larger than other birds their size.  They have an incredible memory and can remember the path to each flower, how quickly each flower refills it's nectar, and which flowers make the highest quality nectar.

I wonder what this fellow could be thinking as he rests.

as the sun sets
i put my lips softly against your neck
(that neck that wrecks me)
breathing in
the warmth from your skin
resurrects me
again
and again.

your sweet arousing scent
making it hard to fight
the inclination to bite.

then we laugh
as the waves splash
you consent.

a piercing gaze
thrust properly into a trepid heart
will cut not once, but twice,
as it slowly then pulls apart.

The kind that can't be won or bought.

Except for one.

And how lucky am I to have someone like you brightening the colors in my old soul.

This was taken at the beach at sunset. My process for a photoshoot is casual but quick and I doubt the people posing for me can imagine what I am seeing.

But I am glad when they trust me.

To fall back into a dream, a lustful dream. The kind that awakens your soul with the flick of a tongue. The kind that robs you of rest but sets your spirit racing.

Oh to awaken with that kind of tired.

but strongly
calling your name

so vibrant
and moving
words can't explain

she is red
and on fire

she had a sadness in her heart

something special for tomorrow

she looked up with a smile
shouting tell me the surprise!
for you, my daughter, i will shake the earth

A day dream, unlike any other kind.
The weary traveler traveling so far to find.

The resting spot.

Sign post says, in weather beaten letters,
All dreamers welcome in this debtors shelter.
Your freedom has been bought and
The journey has now brought you to

The resting spot.

there is a moment
will come today
you will have seen it before
perhaps yesterday

life works that way
goes on and on in repeat
until it goes away

and when you see it
i hope you smile
but if you cry a bit 
it'll only last a while

life works that way
goes on and on in repeat
until it goes away

ideas are falling on my head
most of them rolling off
and landing on my feet instead
of entering my brain
insane
ideas like rain drops
dripping down to my socks
and i'm just wet.

i see the sun set and rise
like a memory in my head
i see you standing like a silhouette
are you real my friend

the moon moves over a million lights
caressing each one as a lover does
i see you flowing like a floral dream
are you real my friend

Hummingbirds may be tiny, but their brains are much larger than other birds their size.  They have an incredible memory and can remember the path to each flower, how quickly each flower refills it's nectar, and which flowers make the highest quality nectar.

I wonder what this fellow could be thinking as he rests.

mother nature's rhythm
to study her glorious rain ruby.

Chapter 2: http://goo.gl/g9uwrO

Chapter 3: The Drifter

A black and white police car, lights on but siren off, slowly pulls into the parking lot.  A man steps out, then leans back through the open window to say something indiscernible into his police radio.  He then marches towards the light blue office building.  "Nice place for an office", Dave thinks. It is located at the pier.  The sky is beautiful, as usual. The sun will be setting in the next half hour.

A Short Story by JJ Bentley

Chapter 3: The Drifter

A black and white police car, lights on but siren off, slowly pulls into the parking lot.  A man steps out, then leans back through the open window to say something indiscernible into his police radio.  He then marches towards the light blue office building.  "Nice place for an office", Dave thinks. It is located at the pier.  The sky is beautiful, as usual. The sun will be setting in the next half hour.

"It's going to be awesome," Dave notices. He wishes he was here off duty, with his camera. It would be a perfect time to be at the beach, if it weren't for the erratic person on the roof.  Someone inside the business has called 911 about a homeless person on the roof who is "yelling, stomping and acting like a lunatic".  

Dave walks up to the building to find a spot where he can make eye contact with the drifter.

"Get down now!", Dave yells.  No one answers. "Down! Now!", he yells again.

This morning Dave had awoken to the aroma of coffee emanating from the kitchen. The 3 year old automatic coffee machine was about the only thing he kept from his divorce. He had struggled to walk his tired 52 year old body across the carpet and into the bathroom.  He flipped the bathroom light on, squinting and cursing from the light.  He turned on the faucet, running the water over his relatively maintained hands until it became very cold.  Then after filling up his hands, he leaned over and splashed the icy water over his face.  He looked into the mirror.  He was tired.  No, he was exhausted.  Was it the divorce?  Was it time sharing his kids with a crazy bitter woman?  As he looked closer in the mirror he stared at himself.  It occurred to him that maybe his ex-wife wasn't the only one looking crazy and bitter.  That was at 4 AM, as his day began.  Those thoughts and memories had faded away as he went about the business of living. They would be back tonight.  But not yet. Dave had a job that needed his attention.  

"Come on down. Let's get this over with," Dave tries to reason with the trespasser. Another police car drives up along side Dave's. The door opens and out steps a man whose uniform can barely contain him.  The name tag says "Marty Harrison".

"Why don't you climb up and get 'em?" Marty asks Dave as he laughs loudly.  

"At least I could, you fat bastard," Dave barks back.  The drifter, hard to see against the setting sun, is pacing back and forth looking out at the ocean.  They look like they are wearing borrowed clothes.  There's a hoody covering their head.

Dave walks around to the side of the building.  He can see a wall that appears to provide a way to the roof... if walked on delicately.   "That must be where they climbed up," he thinks.  "I'm going up!" Dave yells to Marty.  Dave steps onto the narrow wall, at it's lowest point, and follows it until he reaches the spot closest to the roof of the building.  He looks at the distance between him and the roof.  He isn't so sure this was the way up after all.  He thinks about taking the leap.  "Forget this," he mumbles.  He turns to go back down, deciding instead to find roof access from inside the building.

As he turns to walk back down the wall, the drifter peeks out from the roof.  The sun makes it hard to see anything but a dark silhouette.  "Hey, come on down, buddy," Dave says with a calm voice.  He is surprised when a woman's voice replies.  "I can't," she says.  "I'm looking for my father."

Dave asks in disbelief, "Who?"

"My father is lost," she says.  "He needs me."

"Did he climb up, too?"

"No, no, no, no. But I think he will be coming back on a boat. I have to look for him!"  She ran back to the other side of the roof.

"Hey! Come back," Dave shouts.

She returns, this time blocking the sun as she stands.  Dave can see that she is a young woman who appears to have been living on the streets.  She is dirty, disheveled and probably needs medication of some kind. 

"I can help you look for him, come on down and let's talk," Dave says in a calm voice.  She pauses, looking directly at Dave. 

"Really?", she asks hopefully.

"Yeah, I promise", Dave replies.  "Give me your hand."

She grabs Dave's hand and they make their way down the wall.  Dave is struck by the roughness of her hand.  He can see under the dirt and grime an attractive woman.  As Marty comes around to meet them, he pauses abruptly.

"Whoa, you're a woman," he exclaims.  She hasn't take her intense stare off of Dave.

"Ok, now you must help me", she says. 

Dave can't help but stare at the incredible sunset.  After a few seconds he turns to the woman.

"What's your name?" he asks.

"Lorena."___
