There is nothing I like more than reorganizing, I like how he's starting fresh this time, a new, clean circle :)
The NEW Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle | MAY 2014 | READ THE WHOLE POST BEFORE ASKING FOR INCLUSION

The first two PAC's (March & April 2014) were great successes and I want to thank everybody who participated in it! Like my old APC Circles, this new MAY PAC will be another great way to enhance your feed! I will check EVERY SINGLE feed and guarantee that your stream will flood from quality images when you add this circle when released.

Please note that I have reset (deleted) the April Circle and the show begins from scratch again. That way I can assure you that the circle is filled with FRESH content and COOL new photographers every month! :)

How To Qualify To Future PAC Circles

If you're a professional or an amateur photographer mainly sharing your own original work in your feed, then you're eligible to ask for inclusion in the May PAC.

The difference between this circle and the old APC is that I now will be giving away FREE accounts to the Pixativity Photographer's Directory every time I share this circle. I will pick three photographer's from the circle and add them to the directory while I compile the circle (you will be notified). 

(For those of you not remembering the APC, it's one of my most shared and popular circles since I started here on Google+ a couple of years ago. Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the APC now boast more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness and quality of this circle. The PAC will be of the same high quality!

The Guidelines

Yes, there are rules and guidelines. :) If you want to participate in the PAC you need to do the following:

1) Plus and comment this post to show that you want to participate (you must do that here on the original post). Please state what kind of photography you're into in your comment. You also may tag friends of yours to help promote them as well. I'll add them too if they meet these guidelines. Tagging friends increases your chances of being added.

2) Reshare this post to help promote your fellow G-plussers. That way YOU will receive more attention once the circle is released. If you do not reshare, I probably won't add you to the circle since this is a joint effort to promote good photographers. YOU deserve to be reshared, right? So does your fellow G-plussers.

The post must be reshared in your personal feed and publicly.

Pages will NOT be accepted into the circle.

3) Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is neither the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Thanks. I will check your feed anyway, be sure of that. :)

4) Premium & Lifetime Members of the Pixativity Photographer's Directory website are automatically included in the circle. Still;members should reshare this post and  let me know that you did so in the comments.

(How to obtain a Premium account to the PPD can be found here:

Please Note

If I do NOT add you to the circle there's always a reason for that. 1) You do not mainly share your own original work in your feed, 2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc. or 3) I did not like the mix of your feed (yeah, I know, it's a very subjective thing to create circles like this) or 4) I just missed your comment of some reason – mistakes happen, I am only human.

Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured that I check ALL feeds and you are welcome to ask for inclusion in the next edition of the PAC.

Release Date

The next circle will be released on May 5. Keep an eye open for the up-coming Circle Post.

Now, let's make this May PAC another success story. :) Get on with the resharing.

Arrrgggarrglyh! +Google+ I love you, I truly do, but you absolutely have to give us a way to organize our albums! Give us a +Google Drive dashboard to move photos around, add labels/tags for duplicate albums, you have a system, now share it with us!

I couldn't agree more...I delete a lot (most) daily photos so the albums I actually planned for my profile viewing don't disappear under the more...and I noted in my profile the problem and he I handle it now

The streets in my town are absolutely horrendous. Even after the roads have been "fixed" they're still super crappy.
I'm thinking I want to move outside of city limits because apparently my city taxes go to ..... nothing.

Oh? How funny! I happen to love Einstein. Then again, who doesn't? ;-)

I can see where my shortcomings are that I've been actively working on lately, so it was really interesting to see what the description said. I've had numerology readings before, but they were not that spot on. I'm impressed but the site. Thanks for sharing. :D

A story for SignSunday. First Tech has been around for 37 years. They were an Apple distributor and did repairs. Their customers were typical Apple die-hards. I say were, because a few years ago Apple themselves moved a few blocks away. Yep, they closed last month.

I walked across the street to take some close-up shots, where a woman stopped me and asked when they open. I said they were closed, and after a little Who's on First patter, she finally grasped they were totally and forever closed (boo hoo!). "I just drove 150 miles to buy a Mac! I have waited 15 years, what do I do now?!" 

Aha, but there's an Apple store up the street, its not buy local, but its only a few blocks (Yes, part of the reason Firsttech closed. "Oh Good!," she replied, "but, do they sell Macs?"

I wasn't going to cross here, it seemed not worth the time, but I am glad I did, because otherwise the woman I helped would have driven home without her new Mac; that would have been terrible!

This is my +Sign Sunday story, what's yours? +Lori Carey +Gary Posner  +Jetski Jones and I are waiting to see them.

You would not believe how much work I got done today, and I never believe it will take as long as it actually does. Spring, always a time of new beginnings. I think I'll go begin something more...

Controlling Chaos
I did it, I went into the vortex-basement! It wasn't as bad as it could have been, now there's less cleaning-chaos, and I had time to find this photographic chaos for #leadinglinesmonday  - I consider the morning well-spent!

I am crazy in a good month, but last year when I was laid up with a broken foot for fourteen weeks and a day, I was living in my normal chaos plus some very bad juju chaos. One tiny illustration, I made multiple copies of my mobile pics. This cute little alien had 10+ copies of the original, and that many of the various variations/editing. I wasn't tagging as I uploaded, so I had a whole hell of a lot of work to find the photos I was looking for to build a real portfolio.

George here is my notification that, better than Jack, I'm back and still crazy after all these years; and I found some decent photos I think... :)

Blessed are the weird people - poets, misfits, writers, mystics, painters, troubadours - for they teach us to see the world through different eyes. ~Jakob Nordby. 

I see in abstraction, in layers. I follow light and color, love shadows and dark. I'm a storyteller and a dreamer. I see what is, and think, "What could this be?" 

Visit me on twitter, I'm playing there a lot these days. I have never used it much, but truly, its fascinating! I am actually meeting local people there, which is pretty amazing. 

Social networking is not selling my art, it is communicating with artists around the world, learning, teaching; its how we become who we are as artists, not necessarily as selling-their-work artists...
