This is one of the best images I have captured of these dumb trees in years. Acacia schaffneri. There are about 20 trees in a row. Very drought tolerant.

The IOC would look into the refusal by Egyptian judoka Islam El Shehaby to shake the hand of his victorious Israeli opponent Or Sasson.

Hey Dani el When you can find the time? Take a look on YT for a drummer named Meytal Cohen. She did the required service time and moved over to CA to pursue her music career. She does what are named "covers" of well-known musicians and has done a "real" tour of her own recently. Worth looking at a video or two to see her magnificent smile. :)

Thought I would share #GeneratorPhotography 's flickr image with all of you Southern California folks. Generator Photography (his flickr profile name) lives in Vegas and while on an excursion to Lost Hills, California, USA, he captured the smoke on the horizon from a few hundred miles away from a fire that is burning in SoCal. +Alex Bellanger  I think this is an intense image. 
Explore Generator Photography's photos on Flickr. Generator Photography has uploaded 9155 photos to Flickr.

If anyone has any suggestions, other than go buy LB for PS, I sure would like access to the information. EDit ( 0631 hrs my time): Got it figured out. Yaaaay!!. This should tide me over until I am using LB and PS. Hopefully. :)

What a shame.
The path of Adel Kermiche, born in France to immigrant parents from Algeria, and one of the two men who murdered the elderly priest Father Jacques Hamel, looks like the path followed by many young French Muslims: school failure, delinquency, shift towards a growing hatred of France and the West, return to Islam, transition to radical Islam. The French education system does not teach young people to love France and the West. It teaches them instea...

+SimpleTut  When and if you find some time, take a look at my flickr images, please. I have a link to my public photos on my G+ public profile, sir.
And "noticed" that I should say that Google Plus is a great place to social media. I have been here for a little while now. Have made some good acquaintance ,and a couple of times, there have been gatherings of photographers here in Las Vegas, NV where I hope to have made some decent new friendships. In order for G+ to work for you effectively, get involved in Communities of folks with similar interests. There are a whole bunch of computer tech-types... the Google big shots are right here too ( there are two people that I know for sure). Add some people to your stream, follow them, and their posts show on your stream. Google does not do anything like FB. You have your privacy as far as third-party stuff. Apoligize for the length of this. Am learning quite recently how precious time can be.

I try to capture images and take snapshots. Privacy is my utmost concern.
Introduction
Am devoted to studying the Bible.
Am studying light. - Am searching for right angle prisms and mirrors. A decent photonics table; light sources, mirrors, mounts, and other assorted stuff to make neat photographs.




Photography:
Saved for a while and finally have a camera. My equipment is:
Canon T5/1200D
Zoom type EF - S 18-55mm  f-3.5 - 5.6 IS II Lens
Am saving for a decent tripod. Have discovered the need for this tool because of photographic noise. I need to keep my shutter open longer at low light levels.
19 november 2015:
Have purchased a new tripod and head. Communist Chinese made, yet am very pleased. Probably the first Commie-made item worth anything that I have purchased that has gone on to be a wise purchase. Could not afford the next step up. Anyway is a great tripod. It has the one leg detachable that doubles as a monopod. An a bubble centering balance for the tripod. There is a guided center-shaft and a pointed set of leg tips for use in undeveloped photography arenas.

6. 2 December 2015:
"I am starting to come to the conclusion that whoever controls the kickbacks from the sales of cigarettes and fuel in the Arab occupied territories is responsible for the entire conflict with the nation of Israel. This is what happened in Gaza. Hamas wanted these kickbacks and was able to oust the Fatah that were receiving the same kickbacks in the first place. If one is responsible "to" their own intelligence and does the footwork to research my claim, I am confident in the conclusions they will reach for themselves." [time_anchor]
