#circleshare sharing my friend +Georg Srama Photography​'s April shared circle
 
Thanks a million! Circle # 9 April 27, 2015. Thank you for your great support since the last circle # 8. I am delighted!

Who is in the circle? We have circled each other. You have supported me since the last circle # 8. 

Almost everyone in the circle is a photographer. Publication period: in line with demand and adequate. More than 60 days inactive ... and you're out!

Plusses, comments and re-shares are always highly appreciated. Last circle did 133 reshares. Thank you, but i guess ... we can do it better.
 
Anyone plus mentioned in the post is also in the circle. If you do not want to be a part of this circle, please send me a personal message and I will remove you from future circles. If you are not in this circle and you want to be in ... you should support my photos! 

This circle is monitored by Circloscope.

I was waiting for Wifey and my grandson in my driveway and I noticed this plant in my yard. I whipped out my D300s with the Sigma 70-200/2.8 attached and shot this one... (Apparently they are Bleeding Hearts)   #flowersphotography   #flowersforeveryone   #happymothersday   #bleedinghearts

I love Enterprise. It's the only place I rent from now. I have recently rented from Concord, Ontario and Winnipeg and experienced no problems or issues with either place. Service and vehicles were as promised.
