Barcelona, Spain

Sorry I've been so quiet in the past few weeks. I still have photos to share from my January trip to London, Edinburgh and Barcelona, although I narrowed them down to my favorite 10 through a painful process of editing (or what my street photography friend +Eric Kim calls "killing your babies"). I'll share them in the next few days. 

If you're wondering where we are with the #PlusOneCollectionIII  process - we're finalizing the selection of photos for the book right now and about to begin the actual design. I'll have an update on this in the next week or so.

Wow!! One of my very favorites so far. Much thanks to +Steve-Maxx landeros for submitting this one to #PlusOneCollectionIII  
 
So I lagged, and +Ivan Makarov  had to strong arm me to get this year's #PlusOneCollectionIII submission in. Thanks for the reminder Ivan!

So it was a tough one for me to decide. I've spent countless hours so far this year sorting through my work trying to decide on a selection of prints for a printed portfolio. So by the time submissions were being taken, I was kind of burned out. My selection here is for many reason. It was made on a day when I was with a couple of my favorite photographers. Normally, I do not expect much from my work when I am out with such people, the distraction is just too much. Somehow, as the three of us stood and looked over the scene, I managed to expose this scene properly. 

Ehhh... Enough of the stories. I just like this one.

Thanks again +Andy Lee  and +Ivan Makarov  for their dedication to a great project.

Lightroom Mobile looks promising in function but so far is WAAAAY slow. How many hours do I have to wait for one photoshoot to sync from my LR to their services to my iPad?

SUBMISSIONS DEADLINE EXTENDED TO WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19

I just woke up from my usual Sunday nap to a box full of emails saying that folks can't submit images to #PlusOneCollectionIII. I'm not yet sure what happened, but I suspect the volume of last minute submissions with tomorrow's deadline crashed JotForm servers. We received 150 just in the last 12 hours. 

I'm contacting their support, but to give you all time to submit, I'm extending the deadline to the end of Wednesday. 

In the meantime, here's another big hit from +QT Luong

The instructions on how to submit are here - https://plus.google.com/u/1/+IvanMakarov/posts/c54Y13Ljif2

The accepted submissions are here - http://www.photographersforgood.com/Plus-One-Collection/Plus-One-Collection-III/i-hfWDhds (I'm uploading a big batch right now - please check again in 15 minutes if yours isn't showing up yet). 
 
"Looking into Yosemite" for #PlusOneCollectionIII

 I came to the location for a landscape shot, but since it was so hazy, I asked my friend Tom to move over to the brink to make this image instead. The silhouette may be small, but it makes the picture.

At this time, I mostly photographed landscapes, but since then I've become interested in how we are part of our world. I started more conceptual series about the National Park, of which this image was a precursor.

ANNOUNCING PLUS ONE COLLECTION III CHARITABLE CAUSE

It's with great pleasure and honor that I'd like to introduce you to the cause we'll be supporting with this year's proceeds from the sale of the Plus One Collection photobook we're putting together. The cause we chose is The Samburu Project, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides access to safe, clean and drinking water to communities in Kenya. 

What's one thing we all have in common as people in the world? We all need water to survive. While good water is easily accessible to most of us in the developed world, it's a luxury for many people elsewhere and it affects their health, their opportunities and the length of their lives. Let's help!

What are we going to do? We'll use the proceeds to build one water well that will bless the lives of many. 

How much do we need to raise? We need to raise about $17,500 which will be used to drill and construct the well. It's a high goal, but I know we can do it and we'll do new things this year we haven't done before. More marketing, more publicity, sale of prints, and a photo exhibit of work donated to the project, besides the publishing the book itself, of course.  

To get to know The Samburu Project, please take a look through their websire - http://www.thesamburuproject.org/ and also click on the video I linked. 

If you're a part of our project, please continue to spread the word, and share the news with your circles. 

REMEMBER THAT THERE ARE ONLY 4 DAYS LEFT TO SUBMIT YOUR WORK FOR PUBLICATION. DON'T WAIT!

The instructions on how to submit are here - https://plus.google.com/u/1/+IvanMakarov/posts/c54Y13Ljif2
