Gailen Mapes61,666Hand 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 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 +2014-04-02 10:47:471445107CC G+

Margaret Tompkins101,687>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 25,000 FollowersThe photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 25,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Some are fairly new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people but please only one.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!A while back, I had a wonderful discussion about circles with +Robin Griggs Wood and +Charles Lupica .  If you don't know them, then let me introduce you to two of the finest people here on G+!    Charles is a master of monochrome!!  Robin is a master of everything and a mentor to all of us!!  Did you know that she speaks seagull!!   I hope that both Robin and Charles will look you all over and give you a share!  There aren't many quality vetted circles shared on G+.  I'm proud to say that this is one of them!!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2014-02-16 03:26:0247725963164CC G+

Those people that inspired me...touched my soul with their work or made me laugh my pants off.It took me over 2 years to fill this circle up to 500 inspirators, but today... I finally added my last person. :)I will seek more of these in the future, don't worry, and this means I will have to share multiple circles from now on, but for now...these are the 500 most inspirational people on Google Plus for me.A great big Thank You to everybody in this circle for enriching my Google Plus experience and inspire and motivate me in becoming a better photographer.artist. #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circles  2014-01-09 22:05:0550031930CC G+

ShroomshotSaturday672Enjoy the all of the photos of all the people in this circle full of photographers who have shared their awesome shroomshots with #shroomshotsaturday.  If you have shared in the last month and have not been included in this circle, please let one of our curators, +Patti Colston  +Michael Albrecht +Anders Stedtlund or +Sabeena LoBello  know and we will be sure to include you in the next shared circle.Want to be included in the next circle?  Simply share your  fungi photos with us, tag +ShroomshotSaturday  #shroomshotsaturday  and all of the above curatorsWe LOVE shroomshots, but due to the increasing popularity of this theme, please only 1 photo per week.  It is becoming difficult to acknowledge and reshare all of the fabulous submissions that pour in all week long and this way,  during the seasons where shrooms are scarce, you will still have some to share :)Thank you for understanding and happy Shroomshooting :)2013-11-10 21:59:1625713512CC G+
Circles4,563Hello AllHere is my RANDOM Circle... V1.4 - 131027Massive THANK YOU Random circle V1.3 received 178 plus one's 139 re-shares.I am changing the rules slightly as I want this circle to evolve each time it goes out. I have increased the max number of names to 10 so pick up to ten people who share good content so we can all enjoy it. The more people who add names the more this will evolve so I have also changed the minimum down to 1, if everyone puts at least one name it will grow faster than ever.It has taken just over 5 days to pass the 350 people mark which was my aim for this circle, lets see how long it takes to get 400 people in the next one.The rules for this are simple.This circle will change each time it is published, if you are in this one you still need to follow the rules to get in the next one. 127 people dropped from V1.3 to V1.4 don't be left behind.RULES1. Give me at least 1 name from your circles or this circle and ask them to re-share.2. Leave a comment saying who you added.(max 10 names)3. Share the post4. +1 the post5. Join my community (not required but preferred) https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/105196566721568189097/communities/118133146948802412583In the next circle I will add the people you added or mentioned and yourself (If you give more than 10 names I will only add the first 10)I have an empty circle just waiting to be filled.Thank you all again for your support.Final note if anyone wants removed from the Circle please just leave a comment and I will not add you to the next oneOne last thing, I am sorry for sending too many updates on the last circle, I will only send one reminder for the next one, this will be sent  a day before I decide to publish.2013-10-27 06:49:32358201120156CC G+

paula contreras2,511The BestBeen on G+ for about a year now and have met some of the most amazing people.  Photographers, Story Tellers, and now some of them friends.Well I don't usually do this, in fact other than sharing a single person at a time, I have never shared a circle.  High time I did and just wanted especially those just starting out on G+ to have a glimpse of some of the best.The best you say, yes the best.My circle count consists mostly of photographers and I am pretty picky about who I circle, but there are a couple of people in this list who are just awesome and appreciate photography so much that you will definitely get shared a lot if nothing else.  These people are also the ones that interact on G+ the most, so if you want content in your stream, than here ya go.So take a look, take the whole circle or just peruse through and find your best peopleShow less2013-06-10 20:31:3220057319CC G+

Jerry O

Jerry O thought he was photo bombing my shot when he waved his hand and tried to get in front of my camera, but he was actually the subject.

"Sorry", he said with a smile.  

"That's okay, I was shooting you!" I replied.

"Oh, well then let me pose properly", he suggested.  We took a couple shots.  I asked him if he would remove his sunglasses.

"Well, that's sort of my look.. but okay", he said as he obliged.

Thanks for the street portrait, Jerry O!

Earlier I posted an poem about today being a super day, or something to that effect. I spent a bit of time deciding which of three pictures should go with the poem.

Of course hours later I am saddened by my choice. I think I made the wrong one. In reality I probably would have regretted any choice I made. Or maybe not! Maybe I really made a bad choice. Arghhhh!

To satisfy my inner conflicted artist, I am posting all three. I am curious.. Which one do you prefer?

it's a happy day
in spite of my efforts
not to keep it that way
and soon today will be gone

it's a super day
inside of my mind
life is super okay
and i will say all of this in a song

(whistling fade out)

expressing innocence and a heart still pure
your name written in the clouds, your destiny
surrounds you and you will find it i am sure

And never had anything
Ever before
Tasted so good.

God, she sighed
I am not sure
Oh yes I should.

Closing her eyes
She ate one more
Because she could.

all 10 against each other
letting the sensation softly linger
4 hands
connecting

a thought is whispered 
to the tune of a song
a beautiful refrain
and it grows strong

the melody touching
the heart inside
resurrecting the parts
that once had died

Boa

Don't worry.  This guy won't bite (probably).  But be weary of his friendly hugs.

never be what others mean you to be
their fears prevent them from thinking free
be instead the dreamer only you can see
believe in yourself yes that is the key

At a recent photoshoot, I decided to do a quick portrait of the make up artist while waiting for the model to change outfits.

the most beautiful flower
must depart with its petals
settling back into the soil

shine bright then today
before the decay

each moment
so easily spoiled

Rough Housin'

Couple of young elephants wrestling around in the water.  They continued for some time until the action got a little too rough.  Then Mama came down into the water and told them to "take it down a notch" or something to that effect.

Xavier Returns

I had not seen Xavier for a long time.  I assumed that he disappeared, vanished as do most homeless people eventually.   But there he was, after being gone for over a year, sitting next to his shopping cart on a bench.

He remembered me as I approached and smiled.  Xavier spent the last year locked up for immigration issues.  I didn't understand, mostly because he couldn't explain it very well, how all of that works.  But eventually he was given a temporary green card and released.

Xavier was much more coherent than usual.  He seemed more present.  I asked him if they gave him medication during his lock up.

"Yes, yes the did.  I take everyday", he nodded as he told me.

I asked him if he still takes it.  "Yes, everyday", he smiled as he answered in his meek quiet voice.  I was happy to hear that,and hoped... more »

The Invisible Mr. Haz

Mr. Haz is a man with a happy disposition.  I first posted his story over two years ago, and he has not changed a bit since then.  He talks very softly, and very quickly.  The words sound like English, and some of them probably are.  He is jovial.  He is silly.  He likes posing for the camera.  

"How do I look?", he asks me in his unique way of speaking very quickly and softly.  I lean in to hear the question again.

"How do I look?", he repeats.  

"Like you haven't aged a bit!", I reply.

Smiling widely, Mr. Haz tilts his head back as if to say, "Oh please, you flatter me".  

"What is your secret?", I ask.

"Oh..", he begins before dramatically pausing.  "I live in the shadows." 

I am left speechlessmomentarily... more »

every dream she ever had
was driven to its knees
but it never made her quit
nor change the way she sees

yes it's true she was black and blue
and often beaten down
but every dream she ever had
would lift her off the ground

every dream she ever had
faded in the pouring rain
but it never broke her spirit
she would always dream again

This is from a second photoshoot with actress Brooke Sorenson.

She makes it fun and easy because she is open to try my ideas and knows how to make them work.

Win win situation.

fantasy 
falling from the sky
down onto me

washing across my face and then
gently caressing all over my skin

fantasy
makes even angels cry
in rhapsody

Anjan & The Spirits

Anjan has been living on the streets for about 14 years.  First homeless in Manhattan, NY, he now survives in Burbank, CA.  Unlike most of the people I talk with, he seems coherent and bright.  But if you talk to people like Anjan long enough, the mental illness always peaks out from the shadows.

"I'm on a spiritual journey.  I use spirits to bring me things, and to help me", Anjan explains.  He talks about how he has learned to summon them, but unfortunately about 70% of the time the spirits are not friendly.  

"They can be a bit abusive", he explains.  He is mild mannered and polite, but he is a large man in height and weight and his size reminds me to monitor him closely while we talk.

"There are programs, opportunities, for people who are homeless.  It's not too difficult being homeless. I pref... more »

despondent dancer 
trying not to forget
their pirouette
while dying from the distance
between their dreams
and regret
dancing slowly to the tune
of an old duet

i laid my soul onto the earth
when with closed eyes an idea gave birth
and i tell you friends for what it's worth
my soul sang a song of joy

i rose up tall with my new scheme
my eyes wide open and the path now seen
too good to be real it was like a dream
my soul sang a song of joy

i ran forward and never looked back
my eyes so focused and ready to attack
everything clear as white and black 
my soul sang a song of joy

Balance

They say youth is wasted on the young, but sometimes I come across young people who know how to appreciate the moment, to be mindful of what they are experiencing. 

These love birds were sitting in appreciation of their setting and each other, in a beautiful balance of the two.

My 5 year old girl yawns hugely at dinner.

"You are tired", I observe. "That's why you are cranky."

"No", she corrects me. "That's just my morning yawn. I forgot to do it this morning."

I spent about 2 minutes literally laughing out loud.

"I stand corrected."
