Cool.

Today: I've got lots of paperwork to do so I'm going to watch episodes II-VI of Starwars. I watched episode I last night. Jeezuz! I forgot how bad it was and just how many racial slurs Lucas adds to his aliens characters. I have high hopes for the next one by Abrahams.

We share a lot of the same feelings +Sonali Dalal

Agreed FB is a weird mix. I handle it by a family and friends private page. My public page, like everywhere else, is Gazzaroonii and for photography only.

Instagram is just a travelogue for me all great food and locations. Designed to make family, friends and followers jealous :)

I love Ello but it's slowness is painful. They're improving all the time so I'm hopeful it will improve. Good performance costs money and I'm not sure their business plan can support them. For now I'm hopeful they make it and I like the artist community.

I still love Google for interaction and community but it's frankly a shite place to showcase photography. It's disorganized and disappointing. It worked well when it was integrated with Picasa, then some idiot broke it ruining many man months of work and integration with Adobe Lightroom. It was a really ridiculous move that I hope someone reverses with whatever Google Photo's turns out to be.

I get innovation leads to change but if the invocation is crap, it's crap. Cars have four wheels. We've tried 3 and 6 but 4 just works. Albums and portfolios work. It's universally understood and universally accepted. Everything else is just a 3 wheel tip over or a 6 wheel, over engineered dumb ass idea.

IMHO. ;)

+Alex Lapidus how about you? Are you investing time converting albums of thousands of posts to collections, one post at a time?

2015 Papua New Guinea - Village
Some of the greatest moments in Papua New Guinea is goofing around with all the kids. There are loads of kids all outside in big groups doing their thing and having a great time. I love goofing around and had a great time. This was often the scene after we left a village. Priceless moments.

A friend and I, took Fujifilm Instax Printers (polaroid like) with us and you can see one of the photos in the kids hand here. It was brilliant giving them out and watching the amazement as images appeared like magic. It also causes a long line of people queuing up to have portraits taken! Brilliant!

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic"

2015 Papua New Guinea
Karem Tribe – Chief

Nick is chief of a village of around 500 tribesman.  He is a very very imposing and cool guy, speaks very good English and has a great sense of humour; So we employed him as art lighting director.  This meant we got many great shots, after all, who is going to say no to a chief who looks like this?

2015 Papua New Guinea - Local Village
Ambua Lodge in Tari of Hela Province - newly formed two years ago.  This village we visited put on a show of the traditional village life where women lived in the woman house and me in the mens house.  The women were making clothes, tending the fields, raising the children, preparing the food and generally doing everything.  The men on the other hand were getting trashed in the mans house.

Story
Tagline
WorldTraveller | Pro Geek | Foodie | Barefoot Runner | Photog wannabe | G+ Public Account
Introduction
Photography:  I am a photographer, its my passion so I will never be a pro, because then someone else will call the shot's on what I want to shoot.   I contribute and am very active on G+ as a photographer but you can find me on Flickr, 500px and Facepuke (I don't like it).

You can see some of my work here: Best Top Photographers Website
You can see my popular G+ Images here: Popular Google Images

I have severe GAS so shoot with lots of stuff but primarily Leica M 240 and Leica M Monochrome.  Street, travel and reportage are things I am focused on right now but also cityscapes and landscapes.  I occasionally shoot cats and flowers to annoy people.

NOTE: Gear Acquisition Syndrome was a term coined by Zack Arias which explains the silly belief that more and more, better and better, gear will make you a better photographer.  He's right, it doesn't. 



Geekery: I am a pro-geek;  Which means I get paid for playing with cool man toys ( gadgets and tech are traditionally man toys but girls can play too).  I read lots of technology and science stuff. I will share what I find interesting but I can't promise that you will find it interesting.

OTHER INTERESTS

These things I may post about occasionally but in truth I am here for the fotos.

Travel: I share to make you jealous.  It's a terrible affliction you'll have live with.

Barefoot Running: It's not as painful as it sounds and I mostly run in minimalist shoes. .  Okay, around the 20-30K mark it's actually very painful but I think that's just a general rule of running.  One day I want to run an Ultra in minimalist shoes.

Foodie: 
I eat.  I mean a lot.  And I have been know to post pictures for all the wrong reasons (see Travel).

Zen: Conscious every day to not let my first-world problems make me forget to be grateful for my wonderful life.

"If I was put me on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things then right now I am so far behind, I will never die."

More on My Photography on G+

G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers

The G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers is organized and run by the program directors, Robin Griggs Wood,Ron Clifford and Tamara Pruessner

The G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers is an on-line, mini-mentorship program that gives emerging amateur photographers the opportunity to reach out to working professionals, gaining both technical, artistic expression or career advice in a friendly forum. CHECK IT OUT YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

Daily Photography Themes (DPT) 

I contribute to various theme days.  Themes have evolved considerably since these intrepid explorers of G+ fired them up so I will leave this here in there honor:


To Find Out about Daily Photography Themes:



Circling: It is not possible to circle everyone back!  I have 4000+ photographers in my circles, my friends and a menagerie of geeks and other interesting folk.  If you have a decent profile and produce your own content or are very interactive then I will circle you.
Bragging rights
I have lived, loved and worked in ~12 countries and 20+ cities in the last 20 years.
