Melissa, meet +Mike Spinak . +Mike Spinak , this is my friend and fellow Scavenger Hunter +Melissa Beagle . I was lucky enough to shoot with and meet Mike over breakfast awhile back. He photographed, and then wrote an amazing, amazing book about baby hummingbirds. And the family process during nesting and hatching.

I have attached a link. Melissa, based on some of your recent posts, thought he might be someone you would consider circling, if you have not already.  
Hummingbirds are such charming, and challenging models for us photographers. Such delightful and precious creatures to share our world with. 

Happy Sunday.

Sign up and join us!!
 
THIS IS THE OFFICIAL 2015 "SWEET 16" ROUND SIGN UP
for the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!

Don't know what that is?
It's an amazing game that has turned into so much more.
If you love photography, and you have a camera,
COME JOIN US!!

Simply type "I'M IN" in the comments below and the first 500 people to sign up will be entered.

After sign ups I will be giving you an item list -
10 simple things to take pictures of.
It's up to you to make your picture stand out!!
It's so much fun!!
I give you a few weeks to get the shots done.

You do *NOT *need to be a professional shooter. 
You do NOT need a fancy camera.
You do NOT need to feel any hesitation on your skill level,
as this group of Scavengers is one of the most supportive groups of people around.
This is just FOR FUN.
It's me getting you to use your camera in ways you might not do otherwise,
It's to push yourself to try new things, learn new techniques, join a group of like-minded people who will encourage you and teach you sooo much!
Basically I'm giving you a fun excuse to take pictures you wouldn't have otherwise - for example, last round I got to pour yellow paint over a friend's head!! 

During the course of the month, you will make friends,
You will have support and be encouraged and be a part of the best community on G+. You WILL be welcomed and surrounded by wonderful people who WANT you to watch you succeed and surprise yourself!!

SO, if that sounds like something you'd like to be a part of...
All you have to do is type two simple little words, "*I'M IN* "
And you will be registered.

IF YOU ARE SIGNING UP SOMEONE AS A PROXY (if someone has asked you to sign them up) do so on different comments.

I will only enter ONE PERSON per comment, if there are more than one on a single comment, only the first person will be entered. 
(This is the only way I can keep track of the 500 spots.)

PLEASE DO NOT comment on this post unless it is to sign up. Any stray comments will be deleted.

PLEASE DO NOT sign up unless you actually want to participate, not just because you see everyone else doing it.

I can't wait to play with you!!!!

And with that - (like any of you even read this) - let the registration BEGIN!! bounces around room

Still catching up on this wonderful Project 52. This is for the theme of "Symmetry". Taken in Sonora, California on a photography meet up with  +Elizabeth Hahn. The shadows, the windows, the old staircase I climbed up to try and line it all up.....delightful. Honestly, the Sonora Inn, with it's pool deck, ancient elevator (with a metal grate closing door!) was excellent fodder for images.

Thanks +Ed Sweeney. I love early birthday wishes or late birthday wishes. I am just so grateful to be alive, and birthdays really bring it out and make me happy.

A sunset, a surfing museum in a tiny lighthouse and a railing. Throw it all together and you end up with my image for "Leading Lines". Although I just have the one line. lol

Story
Tagline
Bringing sense of adventure to everyday living. Yeah, I will go first.
Introduction
I live on the Central Coast of California, and am surrounded by friends. I enjoy a good hockey game, listening to live music or perhaps First Friday (monthly Art Walk).  I come from a long line of talented, prolific and crazy artists, and am just now really stepping up to my craft. My daughter is crafty and creative too!  It is always about the colors, shapes, and the space between them.
 
Answering the call to first see, then create and ultimately share my art has become very vital to me.
 
The photographers on Google + have become some of my favorite Muses, inspiring me so much with their varied skills and styles  vision, creativity and talent.
 
Bragging rights
I mix up left & right. Why brag on this little dyslexic quirk? Well, I kinda like it. Left? Right? Who knows, not me! Keeps it interesting to a degree. I have little fear of getting lost, heck I have done it tons of times and survived just fine. But as rule, you might not want to ask me for driving directions.
Work
Skills
I ask questions. And talk. Are these skills? Sometimes they really are.
