Taking a Break

Awwww I love the chance to see my beloved black/white Galloway cows on the way to the wine country.

But on this overcast Saturday morning I was out of luck/cam range. They were all at the hill, just chillin'! See them, upper right? There was one rogue cow nearby, the black blob with a white ring. A backside, just lovely hahaha.

Fortunately, these lovely horses stepped in to save the shot :-D

The very kind and generous +Steven Spence has given us a collection of his photos to play with!

I gasped when I saw his shots (sooc jpegs) were already so great. What's this clumsy photographer to do?  

I immediately gravitated to this owl capture. I think owls are magnificent and turned this one into a superhero :-)

Do visit +Steven Spence's art, and consider adding him to your circles

Week 11/26: Self Portrait
#BWProject26

Argh. What a dreadful assignment for this spontaneous photographer who simply hates to get in front of a cam!

I just could not make a decent capture happen. So I have cheated, using a spontaneous shot that I snapped just 60 hours before this assignment was announced.

I have been fascinated lately by Vivian Maier’s self portraits in mirrors, poignant b/w squares. The other night, I became enamored with the rich red walls in the powder room of a North Carolina diner, and kept the next patron waiting while I snapped :-)

For the processing, I tried the new Ansel B/W app for mobile.

Happy Dance!

So I FINALLY get Collections!
I was very standoffish on Collections, especially as it is not yet available on iOS.

My biggest fear is that it would disrupt the workflow/contents of my nice neat albums, which contain nearly all the photos that I have shared over the past 2.5 years.

I currently share by uploading to an album and posting from there. I was afraid if I moved prior album posts into Collections I would lose all the wonderful prior interactions with Gplussers.

+Olav Folland  gave me the courage to test.  I moved both a post that wasn't in an album and one that was into a test Collection.

I was able to:

1. Still see the album photo and comment from within the album
2. Still see both posts and comment from within my Posts stream
3. See both posts and comment from within the Collection.

Whew! 
So adding to a Collection will just be an optional final step to my current workflow.

My first Collection contains posts that are not currently from albums. These posts feature other photographers' art (the "my fave capture of the week" posts).

This second Collection represents macros from my Macro album, or from any other of my albums. All macros are conveniently visible here. A macro shot of mine will have two, potentially different, reference points.  Doh!  

And if anyone tires of these macro shots, they can unfollow the Collection and still see my other clumsy captures  :-D

POST-Post Update 
Ok I now added two more Collections that make sense for me:
~ one for my entries to Landscape Photography Events, which can only be seen in one place via a Collection
~ one for all my animal-related posts, currently located in various albums

Yippee!

Yes indeed dear +Isabelle Fortin! I also spotted many sets of three buds on this plant but missed getting a sharp capture :-(

Introduction
G+ is my social media platform of choice.  
~ It's filled with smart, funny, talented, and most importantly, very kind people 
~ I share what I want, with whom I want 
~ And G+ fuels my clumsy attempts at photography  :-)

A camera in a phone?  Ridiculous. 
Then I got my first iPhone in 2009 and discovered what the fuss was about. Gplus slowly began to awaken my hibernating love of photography....   I became brave and started processing, here with the supportive community I found. I enjoy and learn so much from all the talented photographers here.

In 2012 I got a Nikon bridge camera to learn more, and through a Gplus Mentorship I finally learned how to use Manual mode!  I went the Fuji route in 2014 and now carry a Fuji X100S in my purse as well as my iPhone. Regardless of what I use, I shall always be an emotional and spontaneous photographer.

Most of my albums are location-based. I'm working on several projects here in 2015, so Gplus don't go away on me!

Stuff I'm working on:

See you around,
Liz
