Gailen Mapes75,675Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera F-H - 25 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-01-25 11:59:29201001

But i reduced the circle a little bit by deleting accounts not active for more than 60 days or didn't engage in any form.If you want to be added in future versions of this circle please follow these steps:1.

FULL OF NICE AND ACTIVE FRIENDS ;) ==NOW I'M ALSO ADDING PEOPLE TO MY PHOTOGRAPHERS LIST ON FACEBOOK!! https://www.facebook.com/lists/852972128064411Please send me a FB friendship request Indicating your photography interests if you want to be added. ;-)https://www.facebook.com/HaizbeltzAdding friends now in ello.co, please leave a comment if you need an invite. ;-)http://ello.co/haizbeltzAlso adding friends in tsu.co:https://www.tsu.co/GorkaI'd like to enhance the quality of this circle by including only profiles with a person behind. If you choose to add the circle (which is up to you as always), I want it to be a nice experience, I don't want to flood your stream with ads or spam, that is why I weekly review the circle. Should you find any Copyright Infringer at any time, please, provide proper evidence and let me know ASAP in order to remove and ban the user. We support interaction and friendship not robbery! THANK YOU GUYS for all your plusses & shares, and for being there day by day, it is highly appreciated!Would you like to be in the next one and be part of the FUN? Just follow these simple steps: 1.- Plus the post.2.- Share the post publicly in your own stream.3.- Please leave a comment so I am fully aware of your participation.4.- Please follow me.PLEASE READ:1.- I am promoting and sharing this circle in my stream so, please do the same from your side. Do not share it in your "Circle Sharing" page, use your stream.2.- In order to keep "The Gathering Circle" as "clean" as possible from spammers, aggressive business pages or profiles who don't share anything else but spam, ads or just circles please be aware that I will directly remove and block anybody asking for inclusion and meeting any of these cases:A) Your profile or page mainly has circles. I'd like to include in my circles people who, at least have something to say or post, I can't understand why a profile or page just post circles and nothing else, not a single picture, opinion or whatever, please say something, I'd like to see there's a person behind. This is a gathering between people, not circle pages.B) Your page or profile mainly has spam links to some kind of business where they you lend money or stuff like that.C) Your page or profile mainly doesn't have anything else but spam, ads or links to commercial sites.D) If you crop, modify in anyway, remove signature or upload someone else's picture as your own you will be automatically removed from my circles, banned and reported.Nobody can surf all the posts in every profile and check uploads continuously so I'd appreciate your help detecting wrongdoers in order to quickly block & remove them from my circles.Those of you helping me in this task may be included in a special circle of "Circle Moderators". People included in this special circle will automatically be added to "The Gathering Circle" promotion every week. ;-)E) People creating and selling their own stuff like their own Porcelain or Ceramic creations will still perfectly fit in the circle, I like promot2015-01-20 13:10:47500271124

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             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-01-20 11:52:36122000

Dubie Bacino122,755Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino (15th Edition)This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is inspiring content that will enhance your Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------When it comes to #CircleSharing, my practice is to share only two of my circles every month:  - ENGAGERS: this is a way of saying thank you to those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content. If you want me to notice you, be active in one or all of my communities (see below).-----------------------------------------To connect with me, the best place is my appearoo page: http://appearoo.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/ -----------------------------------------If you are on #TSU, connect with me: https://www.tsu.co/opajdara. If not, check it out, it's the new social network that pays you revenue for your online activity! -----------------------------------------MY PAGES AND COMMUNITIES(Feel free to join if any of the topics interest you)MOON PHOTOGRAPHYTake a look at +Moonipulations, it's the place for all Moon lovers.

The Artist and Her Subject - Frisco Colorado, 2003

Digging through old film, I have found a number of faces that may be interesting to see again.

I saw this lady at work in Frisco Colorado.  Can you spot her subject?

Marigold - October 23, 2014

My Last Picture of Randle Before He Got Sick

Just messing around with the Nikon F5 and Tri-X a couple of weeks ago.  I had no idea this would be the end.  Hug your kids and wife every day.  Play with your cats (and dogs).  Take another picture - and another - and another.  You never know.

Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera F-H - 25 of 31

Note: 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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

Shack - Frisco Colorado, 2003

Digging through old film, I have found a number of images that may be interesting to see again.

I saw this in Frisco Colorado.  I think someone actually lived here!  (At least part of the year...)  As you can see it was next to a rather nice restaurant.

People I Have Pictured - Steve Konrad - KSTP-AM

Digging through old film, I have found a number of faces that may be interesting to see again.

This is Steve Konrad in 1993.  At this point he was working for KSTP-AM s a Program Director.  The paper he is hiding behind has an article about one of the "hosts," Barbara Carlson and her odd interview locations.

In 2010 Steve was injured in an accident when his motorcycle hit a mattress that had fallen off a vehicle on the highway.  Most of the stuff you see in online searches today is still about that accident.

People I Have Pictured - John MacDougal - KSTP-AM

Digging through old film, I have found a number of faces that may be interesting to see again.

This is John MacDougal (1923 - 10/13/1993) 1n 1993.  At this point he was working for KSTP-AM and was one of the nicest guys I have ever worked with.  He truly appreciated everything you did - and so you always wanted to do more.

John was one of the old-time news guys.  I'm not going to recount his career, you can get that online if you are interested.  You can also hear his voice again.  See the following sample link:
http://www.museumofbroadcasting.org/macdougall.htm

There are other video and audio clips available if you search for "John MacDougal" KSTP

Oregon Trail Days, Gering Nebraska

Summer is full of small town festivals.  One of my favorites happens the second week of July in my wife's home town.

Oregon Trail Days celebrates the pioneer heritage of the area.  Gering is right on the old Oregon Trail from St. Louis to Oregon.  It was also used by the '49ers on their way to California for the gold rush.

For several years, the Saturday street parade included a herd of longhorn cattle...

I just noticed something...

+Chandrajeet Mohanty only has 450 followers.  I think I've mentioned him before, so, come on people!  Get with it!  Follow this fellow!  He's good, better than me in fact.  If I've got (blush) 75K followers, +Chandrajeet Mohanty should have twice that.  I mean it.

He is an almost daily contributor to +300mmMonday, takes fantastic wildlife and flower shots.  And he lives in a really beautiful area...

Marigold - October 23, 2014

Here we are in the depths of winter - which makes me nostalgic. Always.   I have been re-reading Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine.  If you haven't read this book, you need to.  It was published in 1946 and has been through way too many printings to count. It wouldn't have hung around so long if it wasn't really good.  If you can't afford the US$15 for a hardcover copy or sleuth through Amazon or Ebay for a used copy, it is available as a PDF at:  http://www.sleepingdogstudios.com/Network/Network_2013_14/bradbury-ray-dandelion-wine.pdf

But this book needs to be read on paper... real paper not electrons dancing on a screen.

Let me give you the ending, which really doesn't spoil a thing...

But this book needs to be read on paper... real paper not electrons dancing on a screen.

Let me give you the ending, which really doesn't spoil a thing...

"He shut his eyes.

June dawns, July noons, August evenings over, finished, done, and gone forever with only the sense of it all left here in his head. Now, a whole autumn, a white winter, a cool and greening spring to figure sums and totals of summer past. And if he should forget, the dandelion wine stood in the cellar, numbered huge for each and every day. He would go there often, stare straight into the sun until he could stare no more, then close his eyes and consider the burned spots, the fleeting scars left dancing on his warm eyelids; arranging, rearranging each fire and reflection until the pattern was clear . . .

So thinking, he slept.

And, sleeping, put an end to Summer, 1928."

Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera T-V - 12 of 31

Note: 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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

Miami Beach

This Minnesota morning the heat has been on in the room where my computer is for over an hour and it is still chilly in here. 

I thought it would be appropriate to post a picture of a warmer time.  About 10 years back my employer sent me to a class in Florida.  We arrived in the Miami area on Sunday and used our rental car to cruise the Miami Beach area.

Fishing the Inland Waterway

I thought it would be appropriate to post a picture of a warmer time.  About 10 years back my employer sent me to a class in Florida.  This is the last minutes of my time there, we were on the way to the airport in Miami and stopped at a few places along the way for a lingering look and a few more warm moments.

Flying With Lunch

This Minnesota morning the heat has been on in the room where my computer is for over an hour and it is still chilly in here.  The wind chill is -30F/-34C...

I thought it would be appropriate to post a picture of a warmer time.  About 10 years back my employer sent me to a class in Florida.  This is the last minutes of my time there, we were on the way to the airport and stopped at "the beach" for one last look.  I took off my shoes and waded out into the surf as far as my rolled-up pants would allow.

My feet were sandy all the way home on the plane - but it was worth it!
