Many of the people in this circle are among the most interactive people on G+. Contribute top their themes, get to know them,  I think it will enhance your G+ experience.Best Regards+Charles Lupica ────────The circle has been checked for accuracy by most of the involved curators.  I would also like to thank +Steve Gill +Jason Borg +Manuella Betaille for their help in checking the existing themes.There are now over 400 themes, theme pages, and perhaps as many as 1000 curators but not all themes are created equal. I often talk about what it means to me to curate a theme and how I view things. To me, the best themes are the ones that have highly interactive curators. The vast majority also have a page to compliment their theme. A theme page is a great place for the curators to share information about the theme and to list the name or names of the people currently curating the theme. IMHO, a good theme page should provide information about the theme, how to participate, and who is curating the theme.  Most theme pages share some of the best work.  A few share all submissions.There are many themes that were created and then abandoned by their creator so I wanted to know, "Which themes rock?". I asked the G+ community to tell me which themes have highly interactive curators and an active community. This circle is based on community feedback and my personal view of what it means to have a theme that rocks.  ────────A good place to start if you are new to themes is perhaps the about page of +Monochrome Monday or the about page of +Daily Photography Themes +Daily Fine Art Themes.  If there are any themes that you feel rock that aren't mentioned, be sure to add a comment to this post, include the name of the theme, what day of the week the theme takes place or daily, the name of the page, and the name of the curators.  If there is no page, please state this.  Themes without a page are less likely to be listed but some very interactive themes don't have a page. 2012-08-29 13:45:173048691106
Gailen Mapes13,775Daily Photography Themes CircleToday is the 29th day of the month and since "Hand Picked" circles don't share again till September 1st, here is my "Daily Photography Themes" circle.  This circle consists of as many of the daily photo themes as I know about and some of the curators that I do not otherwise follow.  If you know of other photography themes, just comment on this post and I will check them out and add them if appropriate.As always, all of my shared circles can be found at my profile: +Gailen Mapes!Enjoy!2012-08-29 13:44:202911538

Jeff Sullivan341,904Daily Photography Themes on G+: Theme Page Circle v2.0Daily photo themes are a great way to share your best work.  Many of the theme creators/curators also maintain a Google+ page on the theme, so following the daily theme pages can be a great way to find creative work by others for enjoyment and inspiration.  Some of the pages highlight some of the curator's favorite participant contributions, others are set up for participants to tag the page in their photo and automatically have their work appear in the page's stream.  Lists of the daily themes, with notes on any participation details, are maintained by the following people:+Eric Leslie  - http://ericleslie.com/guides/daily-photography-themes-googleplus/+Kol Tregaskes  - http://bit.ly/kolgplusphotodailyhashtags+Ray Bilcliff  - http://trueportraits-nature.com/2011/11/g-photographers-daily-themes/Typically to participate you simply Include the theme hashtag, in the text of your post, and others can find it by clicking on the hashtag or in searches.  If you want interaction though, don't sit around waiting: you get what you give.  Be the interaction you want to see!  Or just browse photos and get inspired.  There's no "one right way" to enjoy Google+; interaction isn't a prize to win or something to compete for.  I only mention it in the context of making new friends with similar interests.  Over the course of the past year, I've met a lot of fun and inspiring people, many of whom I now get out and shoot with regularly, and others I hope to meet and shoot with some day.  Whatever you're here for, a photography theme can categorize images in ways which may help you find the types of images you'd most like to see or photographers you might like to meet.I've found 394 themes so far, but if I've missed some, please mention them in the comments and I'll include them in a future update!2012-08-10 01:07:41394161339

Jeff Sullivan131,363Daily Photography Themes on G+: Theme Page Circle v1.0Daily photo themes are a great way to share your best work and to find creative work by others for enjoyment and inspiration. Many of the theme creators/curators also maintain a Google+ page on the theme.  Some of the pages highlight some of the curator's favorite participant contributions, others are set up for participants to tag the page in their photo and automatically have their work appear in the page's stream.  I like to discover new photographers and to get inspired by great photos, so for the +#SelflessSunday Theme on G+ page I look for a few of those types of posts to share, rather than have the page simply duplicate-post all contributions (and mirror the "see all posts" functionality that clicking on the hashtag already performs).  I'd also be concerned that auto-posting all contributions might set the page up for a high volume of self-promotional spam.  I'm not trying to advocate on approach though, if any curators would like to offer how/why they manage their pages in a certain way, that's fine, I'm open to suggestions.  I also like to catch up on curation later in the week when I can see all posts, and the ones I highlight can be discovered by community members who weren't online when the original post flew by on the stream.Lists of the daily themes, with notes on any participation details, are maintained by the following people:+Eric Leslie - http://ericleslie.com/guides/daily-photography-themes-googleplus/+Kol Tregaskes - http://bit.ly/kolgplusphotodailyhashtags+Ray Bilcliff - http://trueportraits-nature.com/2011/11/g-photographers-daily-themes/Just Include the theme hashtag, like today's #SelflessSunday, in the text of your post, and others can find it by clicking on the hashtag or in searches.  If you want interaction though, don't sit around waiting: you get what you give.  Be the interaction you want to see.  Or just browse photos and get inspired.  There's no "one right way" to enjoy Google+; interaction isn't a prize to win or something to compete for.  I only mention it in the context of making new friends with similar interests.  Over the course of the past year, I've met a lot of fun and inspiring people, many of whom I get out and shoot with regularly, and others I hope to meet and shoot with some day.  Whatever you're here for, a photography theme can categorize images in ways which may help you find the types of images you'd most like to see or photographers you'd like to see more work from.I was having some trouble finding photography theme pages, so if I've missed some, please mention them in the comments and I'll include them in a future update.2012-07-08 16:02:281884116

I often talk about what it means to me to curate a theme and how I view things. To me, the best themes are the ones that have highly interactive curators and a theme page. To me, a theme page says the curator cares about the theme and about the community. A good theme page should provide information about the theme, how to participate, and who is curating the theme.There are many themes that were created and then abandoned by their creator so I wanted to know, "Which themes rock?". So, I asked the G+ community to tell me which themes have pages and highly interactive curators. This circle is based on community feedback and my personal view of what it means to have a theme that rocks.A good place to start if you are new to themes is perhaps the about page of +Monochrome Monday or the about page of +Daily Fine Art Themes. This circle will become part of an ongoing series and guide to G+ themes; Charles Lupica's guide to themes on G+™.Let's rock.Sunday• Dawn on Sunday  #dawnonsunday +Dawn On Sunday +Ray Bilcliff +Sherry McBriar• Sacred Sunday  #sacredsunday +SacredSunday™ +Manfred Berndtgen +Robyn Morrison +Margaret Tompkins +Sherrie von Sternberg +Charles Lupica• Sentimental Sunday  #sentimentalsunday +Sentimental Sunday Theme +Louisa Catharine Forsyth• SOOC Sunday (Straight out of the cam2012-04-23 13:20:35198190161201

Glen Berry13,796Daily Photo Themes — Updated!I have updated my Daily Photo Themes circle. It's grown considerably, from 47 theme pages to 83. With so many different themes, there's something here for every photo lover, and for every day of the week!There are so many different daily themes, it can be hard to keep track of them all. To make it easier, I collected all the daily theme pages I could find and put them in a circle for everyone. If I left out a theme, be sure to let me know. I'll be happy to add it to the collection.If you like daily photo themes, please help promote them and share this post publicly. Many people don't know about all these daily themes, and I'm sure many of those same people would love to join in the fun, once they know about these themes.Last Minute Updates:The following eight pages were suggested too late to make it into the shared circle, but please check out these additional daily photo theme pages as well:+Phone Snap! (Tuesdays)+Texture Blend Photography (Tuesdays)+Tea Coffee Chocolate Food Club (Saturdays)https://plus.google.com/115836050706497275121/posts — #SelflessSunday Theme on G++52 by 52 (weekly photo challenges)+Farktography (weekly contest)+Snappy Shutters (fortnightly contest)+Photo Scavenger Hunt (monthly photo scavenger hunt)thanks,Glen.2011-12-11 02:18:2184734

Dave Ortiz7,981Hi everyone, Now that pages can be created for entities, I think it is a great opportunity to have all the fantastic #dailyThemes have there own page. I want to expand a circle that i have created to encompass all of these wonderful initiatives that I love so much. i have also created a public Google calendar (http://bit.ly/sIHaiM) that can help navigate the aspiring G+ world looking a daily challenge. It is public and editable (I think). I ask the curators of those various themes to consider creating a page. +Kelli Seeger Kim +Kerry Murphy +Lotus Carroll +Levi Moore +Jeff Smith +Charles Lupica +Eric Leslie +midori chan2011-11-14 14:20:3642002

I never thought the one thing I'd lose on the journey to find myself would be you.


 Day 2 of 5 of the   #5dayblackandwhitechallenge , brought to me by +Ginnie Lerch +John Kosmopoulos +Swee Oh +Tisha Montgomery and +Tom Gort, and I thank you all for it. :)

I wasn't going to post the rule but since I'm going to invite +Tommy Kronholm on this, as I don't think he'd done it, here it is: Post one B&W photo each day for five days, use the hashtag above and tag one person to continue the challenge. 

This is also my post for #SentimentalSunday   +Sentimental Sunday Theme - Curated by my friend +Louisa Catharine Forsyth.

Dearest +Hope OHara , only seeing this now... Such an incredible post, have missed you big time, many hugs

on the wings of a dove
have you ever talked to your self ? have you ever answered yourself?
some say that its ok to talk to ones self.. as long as one does not answer ones self.. I seem to find my self on a slippery slop here..
I want to turn back the time.. where there are no more should have could have would have shit..
you all know those times. for we all go through them on this journey  called life... but one does not a time machine.. (besides it no doubt  really wouldn't matter if one did have a time machine.. we are who we are..and one just has to accept that fact.. flaws  and all..
that is what was so great about my dad.. he never judged anyone.. he never had anything to say bad about anyone..  ( well he didn't like some.. but never let that taint his outlook and passion he had with life and the people within it.. ) He accepted one as they were,. and where they were..
anyway..
I deal with upsets in life through escape.. now this can also lead to a two edge sword.. type of thing.. but so far the pendulum isn't swinging to far in either direction.. thanks to my camera.. and my new found love of smoke..  (smoke photography)
which I believe has become more of a therapy than anything else right  now..
One can take a zillion captures.. and one might find one or two that says HI...
this one that I am posting not only said HI.. but said I'm ok..
I see a dove.. its head is hard to see.. towards the middle left.. ( its green) then its wings spans upwards.. (white/ with a hint of pink;red)
there is a figure sitting or standing on the back of the dove.. (blue ./white)
and towards the behind of the dove is orange..
that is what I see... what I feel.. what it says to me..
sometimes its the little things in life that speak the loudest..
much love to you all. and thank all of you who walk this path holding me hand..means more than words can express....

Love the story behind your perfectly beautiful capture +Liz C 

Divine Bovines

You might know that I just love cows, from their beginning to their end.

On the coast there is a beautiful black herd that grazes on a grassy expanse with the vast Pacific Ocean next to them. Every time I see them I’m passing by, going 60mph on the highway and sighing wistfully to be able to stop and spend time with them.

On the last Sunday of the year I witnessed a beautiful beach sunset, and on the way home I saw the sky turn radiant. As I approached where the cows were and saw their lovely silhouettes, I could fight temptation no longer!

I pulled over to the highway shoulder and ran across in my flip-flops (fortunately Highway 1 is only 2 lanes). I climbed up a small knoll… and there they were. Calves nursing, adults mooing their greeting to me, grazing across the lush winter grass. My heart was so glad :-)))

Thank goodness for Lightroom to help me salvage my handheld snaps. I didn’t touch the temperature, saturation, or tint at all; the colors were this beautiful that evening.

Incredible post and great capture +Naturpunkt by Gina M. 

A view over the Rhine River to our neighbours in Switzerland. 
CH - Oberriet / SG: Katholische Pfarrkirche St. Margaritha

Bis zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts gehörte Oberriet zur Kirchgemeinde Montlingen. Zu dieser gehörten auch Mäder, Kriessern, Kobelwald mit Freienbach und Hard. 
Im Jahre 1806 kam der Wunsch nach einer eigenen Kirche auf. Montlingen wollte Oberriet aber nicht gern abgeben, denn die Oberrietner brachten Geld. Nach einem langen Streit trennte sich Oberriet jedoch im Frühling 1808 vollständig von der Kirchgemeinde Montlingen. Moos und Rehag gehörte zur selbstständigen Pfarrei Oberriet, aber Kobelwald blieb bei Montlingen.

Als Bauplatz für die neue Kirche wählte man die sogenannte "Schulhofstatt". Im März 1809 wurde mit dem Aushub begonnen. Die Arbeiter stiessen auf sehr schlechten Baugrund. Man musste unzählige Pfähle in den Boden schlagen. Die Gemeinde Altenstadt bei Feldkirch lieferte gratis alle Baumstämme. Die Steine holte man von der zerstörten Burg Blatten.

Das Ziel war, eine Kirche für 800 Gottesdienstbesucher zu bauen. Der Pfarrer von Montlingen hatte die Oberaufsicht. Die leitenden Bauleute waren aus Götzis und aus Rankweil. Der Kirchenbau stand unter dem altbewährten Motto: "Hilf dir selbst!". Alle beteiligten sich am Bau. Mit Ausnahme der erforderlichen Fachleute leisteten alle Fronarbeit. Wer die erforderlichen Frondienste nicht leistete, musste eine Barentschädigung bezahlen. Pro Tag arbeiteten ca. 40 Mann mit zeitweise bis zu 80 Fuhrwerken.
Quelle: "Aus der Kirchengeschichte von Oberriet" von Hedwig Loher, herausgegeben 1969.
Es läuten die 6 Glocken der Pfarrkirche von Oberriet im Kanton St. Gallen. Das interessante Geläut klingt bis ins benachbarte Bundesland Vorarlberg hinüber...

Great post +Aamir Shahzad , wonderful capture!

Smile
A smile is cheer from you to me,
the cost is nothing its given for free.
They console the weary and gladden the sad.
And can make someone happy when they are mad.
Unlike blessings in which we pray 
it's the only thing you keep when you give it away.

Tomorrow, I won't be able to post in time for #sentimentalsunday , so sorry +Louisa Catharine Forsyth if I'm ahead of time. :-)  But this story, I believe, is very much worthy.  Met this man in a very small and remote village in East Bhutan.  I do not speak dzongkha and he didn't speak english.  Two fellow Bhutanese translated two questions he asked me initially.  «Is this your first time in Bhutan?» and «Will you come back?»  What followed was a monologue lasting many minutes which I clearly knew what it was about.  My fellow Bhutanese didn't need to translate.  His voice was a strange mix of sadness, despair, serenity and calmness.   He was basically saying that we wouldn't see each the next time that I would travel to Bhutan, that he felt that he didn't have much longer to live and reflected on his life.  His voice was the same that I've heard from elders when they arrive that point of their lives.  I didn't have to understand his words, his voice was speaking volume.  Some situations are...universal.  Have a good journey my fellow stranger.  ___I am so way behind +Louis Lavoie , life happened unexpectedly ;-) Still love this!

Such a moving testimonial +Jerry Downs bravo! 

How the first "negative" response to my book turned into a 5 star review on Amazon: "I bought this book, actually 2.... One for a gift, based on the title not really knowing what to expect and not knowing Jerry, except on FB briefly, but responded to one of his post which was a very inciting sales pitch. I asked him if the answer to why I was born was guaranteed and assured me it was.

Most of my life I have sought the answer to why was I born. Not always feeling very good about myself or my life's circumstances and looking for answers. I was hoping, hoping, hoping it would finally be revealed in this special book.

Upon receiving it I read it from cover to cover searching for the answer amongst the pages and hoping it was also an appropriate gift for my 17 year old friend I had purchase one for which was signed so thoughtfully just for him.

When I finished I was very upset that it was not telling Me why "I" was born. I ranted to Jerry in a private message on face book (it was just before Christmas, not my favorite season as I was born just before Christmas.) I was disappointed I did not have the answer to why "I" was born. I told him it was a book about why "He" was born. I was a mess, feeling like I wasted my money and that my gift would not work out as I had initially been inspired to buy because of the title for my friend. In the signatures he even put thanks for being born....

Well, he couldn't have been more compassionate and understanding and thanked me for my honest feelings (which I usually keep to myself). In our dialog he was so kind and helped me to see things in a whole new perspective, which is what his book represented, that I wasn't able to see at first because I was so caught up in the title and My stuff.

But then, ironically, the answer I was seeking to why I was born, came, as Jerry helped me to see that it's all about perspective. And the Gift I gave was received with Love and Gratitude and awe of his stories and photos we laughed and in Joyed them together.
I love seeing Jerry's posts on FB and is wonderfully, pure, playful vision of LIFE.

I highly recommend the hard cover copy, it's so nice to hold, plus it comes with his personal signature,both are Gems! I also recommend following him on FB for continued daily honesty, inspiration and FUN,FUN,FUN, perspectives and banter.

A life changing book for me! Forever grateful to have Jerry Downs in my life, so grateful we were born! May his wish to have this book fly out into the world be fulfilled. A true gift for all to see and share.
Writing this review had me pick up Jerry's book again for a second read and it is a whole new perspective, so much deeper and beautyFULL it's like it's blooming before my eyes! It's a great book Jerry, truly magical!

I am Feeling so happy and grateful I received a note in my email from Amazon that it had helped someone, that was nice
Peace "

Fall Walk with an Angel

Yesterday Riley and I got out for a walk. I ended up taking a lot of pictures. I think this has to be just about my favorite. I desperately try to hoard little slices of time to be able to take out on a rainy day. Pictures will never do the memories justice but it doesn't stop my from trying.

Wonderful choice of words with your beautiful capture +Liz C 

“We are like children building a sand castle ... The castle is ours, off limits to others. We’re willing to attack if others threaten to hurt it. Yet despite all our attachment, we know that the tide will inevitably come in and sweep the sand castle away. The trick is to enjoy it fully but without clinging, and when the time comes, let it dissolve back into the sea.”
~Pema Chödrön

Profound post +Doug Welch great post! 

Marching, into the future, remembering the past.

This is a young Freemason marching at the MLK March in San Antonio, TX.  This was my first year to attend and it was quite special.  I have always wanted to attend, but owning a service business, I would choose to stay open for business.  Not this year.

It is one of the largest marches celebrating Martin Luther King in the country with tens of thousands of participants.  It was a day filled with joy for young and old alike.

A perfect timed quote and wonderful capture +Sandra Deichmann ! 

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
Albert Camus

Have a good start into a happy new week! :))

So special +Aamir Shahzad beautiful in every way! 

Loneliness
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
 (William Wordsworth)
