The wind this morning was chill; soon, friends, I will be doing my own kind of Ice Fishing. For now, I'll keep playing with my catalog :)

The path to ice heaven come January! See, shhhh, we sneak around the sign, which, on the other side, says nothing at all...

It's +Sign Sunday, #signsunday with +Lori Carey and +Jetski and me, when I can.

+Tom Gort and +mel peifer and +David Q. Cohen - the way to our little slice of heaven, best seen at sunrise, or so I hear :)

I let them catch me - so they would not be too angry.

Misty fast and flood-like Minnehaha Falls. With this much extra water the ice is going to be extra nice this winter!

I've not thought e-cig stores are where I would study... I guess I they are studying anywhere it's all good.

A sure sign summer is gone, and all of the patio tables are empty. This is all fine with me, this is my time of year!

+David Q. Cohen the restaurant in the park is still open, but there aren't many customers. As long as there is music I'll keep walking there. Not to mention the Pokestops :)

Announcing G+ Museum Day 2016!

Hi everyone, I’d like to offer up a fun event for the whole G+ community! In celebration of International Artist Day, I’m inviting all of you to visit a museum anytime from October 25 through November 1, and ideally to visit together with others from G+. At your option, I encourage you to write a post about your experience – whatever you found fun, exciting, inspiring, mystifying, funny, disturbing or even dreary – tag it #GPlusMuseumDay2016 , and feel free to plus-mention me and +Heiko Mahr if you’d like us to see your post. I’m making the announcement this far in advance in case some of you might have the opportunity to travel for a meetup.

This is the Event for our September Self Portrait Challenge: Apocalypse. What this means is create your self portrait to depict some type or nature of apocalyptic event or aftermath or to reflect the concept of apocalypse visually. You have a lot of freedom of expression and interpretation here, so get creative!

Here is where you enter your ONE "Apocalypse" Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST September 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. (The dates on the Event are truncated, but you can submit a photo anytime, all month long.) Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified.

EDITED TO ADD CLAUSE: At least 10 submissions from eligible participants must be received in order for judging to commence and prizes to be awarded.

You can also submit your image on the corresponding FB Event for this Challenge, which can be found on the FB ASP Page:

Gallery of Apocalypse Self Portraits:

Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we will also be putting our photos into the Event in the hopes that you'll be inspired.

If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community and ask away! We have a category for discussion and questions and are happy to help with anything. 

Thanks to +Ricardo Williams for letting us use his image in the header!

Google+ seems to be getting rid of Events. We have seen this coming for some time, which is why we've been working to branch out by creating a website and other social media accounts (see all links below). As of the last "push" of the new G+, Events are still not included, and it seems they will not be a part of G+ plans going forward. "Classic" G+ is still available (for how long, we are not sure); we are using it now to make this Event possible, but we will be forced to consider other options going forward. We will continue to do our best to host these Events on G+ in whatever way we can. Those options will not enable us to notify you the way Events currently do, however. Circle +Art of Self Portraiture , and please visit the website and subscribe to updates so you can stay apprised of our Events this way, if you'd like. Additionally, we encourage you to check out the group, page, and events on FB, if that's possible for you.

Share Your Work!

In order to be officially entered into the Challenge - you must enter your photo here on the Event (or on the corresponding FB Event). Please let us know if you have any difficulty doing this! We want to include all eligible images in the judging.

Aside from entering your image here, we also encourage you to share your work on other platforms, and let us know, so we can support your brilliance. :)

If you share your images on Instagram, FB, Tumblr, Ello and Twitter also, you can follow us and tag the ASP accounts to have your work loved/shared in those places (for this event and also any time).

FB ASP Page:

You can also join our FB Group and share your images there, as well:

Rain and steam are two of my favorite things.

I love my van.

And purple and Prince.

That is all.

Little do they know the white things are here to abduct them. I was too late to help, but I can at least document the event.

Reporting for #alienabductionfriday. I did this one alone, because it was dark and #rubywarriorterrier was asleep.

As janissima:

I tag my images everywhere you can. Use hashtags to find my projects. Realizing others may use these two, you might want to search, for example, #janissima #blurs

Winter is coming, November is starting to be normal for a while, so you can count on finding a lot of #icefishing and #iceography soon :) 

#outthedoor and #ontheroad 

My favorite Google+ albums:

Street of a Different Color - This set is of people enjoying my favorite location, Minnehaha Falls Park. I guess its Urban Photography if its in a park, but there are so many people walking through here every day, I consider it my Street of a Different Color. 

Namaste,  Janice
