Dear Followers

By now you should have noticed that there is a great new Google+ feature: Collections. A feature I was waiting for since my first post on Google+ and a feature that - in my opinion - will revolutionize the usage of Google+.

I know that many of you are following me for my photography work. However I have also many other interests and since the majority of you is only interested in my photography I refrained very often from posting unrelated stuff since I didn't want to bore the majority of my followers and fill their stream with stuff they're not interested in.

Now with collections this changes. Please visit my collections at https://plus.google.com/u/0/+CarstenSchlipf/collections and pick the collection you're interested in.

Be warned! In case you are only interested in my photos you will see more posts that are not related to photography in the future. If you don't want to see these, pick one of the current collections:

Photography:
Photos I have created.

Photography Stuff:
Everything that is related to photography, like tutorials, photography gear, imaging software and so on.

Ranting on miscellaneous stuff.: 
Things that upset me. Stuff you probably don't want to see, but that I couldn't resist to post.

No collection set:
Either posts where I simply forgot to set the correct collection or anything else that might bore you to death.

Simply click on 'Follow' to follow a collection or on 'Following' to unfollow a collection.

Have fun!

+Frank Nitsch - Well, I guess profile followers are those that follow you and all of your collections. Collection followers are:
profile followers
+ collection followers
- profile followers that have opted out

However just a guess.

After all followers is just another worthless number. You may have 10k dead followers worth less than 1k active followers.

The Lost Chappel

The renovation of this chappel in the Wutach Gorge in the Black Forrest has been halted due to too high expenses. Now it's decaying surrounded by meadows full of orchids.

Roping Down

Did you know that slugs are capable of roping themselves down on a thread of slime? I was pretty surprised seeing this slug taking the short route down from a tree.

Get out of my way! NOW!!!

Luckily I've managed to prevent the almost inevitable crash in the last split of a few minutes.

Uploaded in High resolution as always, so zoom in to look closer into its eyes.

Google Photos is coming here. Check it out at https://photos.google.com/.

Highlight: Unlimited storage of picture with up to 16MP resolution. Not as good as Amazon Prime, where you even have unlimited storage for RAW files. However Amazon is more or less a dead-end backup location, where you cannot do much with the pictures stored there.
 
Introducing the new Google Photos

Earlier today we announced Google Photos -- a new approach for storing and organizing your photos and videos, built from the ground up. Google Photos is a standalone app that gives you a home for all your photos and videos, helps you organize and bring your moments to life, and lets you share and save what matters.

If you want to give Google Photos a try, it will be available later today across Android, iOS and the web.

Hm.... Collections in Google Photos = Albums in Google+. But then there is a button 'Create album', which creates a Google Photos collection.

But go to Collections and the title becomes a drop down, where you can select Albums, Movies and Stories.

So an album in Google Photos is a collection containing pictures?

"Hey there! What's up?"

A horse walks into a bar.
Asks the barkeeper: "Hey pal! Why are you pulling a long face?"

Or why a Walimex 14mm UWA isn't the best portrait lense.

Facebook seems to be even more ruthless with taking ownership over what you post there than I had blogged at http://aperturized.com/essays/2015/01/copyright-and-licenses/ previously.

Busy Bee

Ever thought of what humans could achieve would they be as diligent as a bee? And how peaceful humans could be knowing that they can sting another one just once in their life?

Introduction
I am a passionate amateur photographer and rather shoot things than people.

Therefore I am more interested in constructive criticism than in plain "awesome picture" comments. Tell me what I can do better!

For a living I am a software user interface developer designing high priced enterprise software.
