After waking up to more spam on my posts - and spam directed at real people kind enough to genuinely comment on my posts I've had to limit my settings to who can comment to extended circles. If that doesn't help they'll be shut off completely.

I hate doing this as I get comments from people who I have no obvious connection to. I'm sorry to have todo this. If you find yourself unable to comment, you can always do so on my website where I can filter spam before it is visible to everyone else.

Thanks for understanding.:/

Yep. This. Algorithms by all companies seem to be less and less relevant to what I want to see. Even when I specifically say I want to see "X" in my stream, search results, etc. I keep getting shown "Y" only to find "X" buried somewhere.

The other problem - more so in Social Media feeds than in Search/email results is that algorithms seem to think if I like/plus/heart a post about something, say cows, that it means I want to be buried under an avalanche of cows. Now I DO like cows, but I also like fish, pigs, trees, tomatoes, grains, stars, and a gazillion other things. Algorithms seem hell bent on compartmentalizing us.

The other danger is I see more and more of my friends stuck in their own little echo chambers. This only leads to more and more misunderstandings (deliberate and unintentional). And quite frankly flat out ignorance as to other people's motives and real desires. To amend what Yoda so wisely stated -

"Ignorance leads to fear. Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering."
Imagine if the owner of the local bookstore hid books from various authors or publishers. They're on the shelf, sure, but misfiled, or hidden behind other books. Most of us would find this offensive, and I for one like the...

This is from a few years ago, but still one of my favorite Christmassy photos. The color on the dogwoods was a brilliant red that year, and they hung around long enough for the snow to arrive. Yay for seasons colliding!

Merry Christmas and Happy holidays to all.

And especially the #bokeholics  out there! May your lights be fuzzy and warm!

I am really excited about this though!
I'm excited to be selected to show an image at the Yosemite Renaissance Exhibit in early 2017.

+Marc Briggs Thank you!

I had to change to only allow people in my circles to comment. I was getting too much obnoxious spam.. :( Were you unable to comment before? As far as I know I hadn't uncircled you (accidentally or on purpose!)

Photographer, Photowalker, lover of cows - with a wacky sense of humor.

Why am I here?  

There are many reasons - but they all boil down to the people on G+.  I’m so grateful to the many people I’ve met in the last five years.  I’ve learned so much, about me, about photography, art, business and about the world in general.  I’ve made friends that I know will last a lifetime.  

Things I am not good at:

  • Folding sheets.

  • Putting a comforter cover on a comforter

  • Unloading the dishwasher

Things I am good at:

  • Falling up stairs.  

  • Smashing my toes.  

  • Dreaming

Things I love:

  • Cows

  • Mountains

  • Stars

  • LA Dodgers

  • GB Packers

  • Art

  • Quilting

  • Photography

  • Design

  • Wide open spaces

  • Gardening (veggies and plants)

  • Learning new things.  

  • Meeting new people

  • Honesty

Random Things About Me:

  • I’ve only broken one bone ever.  It was my middle toe, the long way (not across).  I don’t ever want to break another bone.

  • I love English muffins with butter and ketchup.  

  • I once had 19 different kinds of cheese in my refrigerator.

  • I was born a mile high in a town of less than 100 people, in a county with only 1 stoplight.  

  • One of my biggest fears is going to the dentist.

  • I was terrified of men in hats when I was a toddler.

  • I don’t pick up new languages easily, but I do adopt accents quickly
