this is brilliant!

photographer Guinnevere Shuster has been taking lovely, playful portraits of dogs for the Utah humane society - showing off their personalities and their adorableness so that they have a much better chance of getting adopted!

a rare combination of #squee + superb #photography + doing good, all in one link :)
There’s no shortage of pets that need a good home, but how do you best show people that their new pal is waiting for them at the shelter? The Humane Society of Utah has an ingenious way of enticing potential owners to adopt homeless dogs. Photographer Guinnevere Shuster captured the pups’ colorful personalities in a series of four small images that look delightfully candid and a lot of fun. The photobooth-style portraits showcase a lot of tongue-...

haven't read the article but looks like something several of my friends would be interested in: +Amy Knepper +Beth Seifert +Heidi Bouman 
 
Lanza began researching other spots where people had managed to create a culture of play for children. One of his favorite examples is a poor neighborhood in the South Bronx, where a woman named Hetty Fox spent decades making her block welcoming for families. She built connections among the neighbors on Lyman Place and got permission from the city to make her block a summer “play street” – free of cars all summer long.

“It’s one of the most wonderful, inviting, joyous places I can imagine,” says Lanza. When he visited, he says, the street was filled with kids of all ages playing.
Mike Lanza, author of 'Playborhoods,' set out to make his home a neighborhood hangout for kids.

Yep lol I actually did this once because my cat had an appointment with the veterinarian and she wouldn't get in her carrier. Cats can't resist boxes. It's like a natural law or something.

Introduction
Shalom. greetings. aloha. hi. nice of you to pop round. put your feet up. coffee? there's biscuits in that tin over there, help yourself.

Who am I?

My name is Meirav. I'm human. My penguin's name is Quentin. I enjoy meeting fellow humans online. I like good intelligent discussion, as well as a good healthy dose of frivolity. I'm fascinated by human nature. I love words and languages. I'm bilingual - grew up in Israel speaking both Hebrew and English. I write. I blog. I have a tendency to speak my mind, sometimes a bit bluntly. (That means if I pay you a compliment, you can know it's for real.) I'm married. I live in England. I'm Jewish. I'm a fallible and imperfect follower of Jesus. I like cats, though currently I don't have any pets. I love chocolate. I'm an introvert, which means I need lots of solitude and quiet and time to hear myself think, and I don't do well in crowds and/or noise, which is part of why I find online social networking so valuable. I love reading. I don't currently own a TV. I have a strong aversion to order and structure, and a deep need for a certain level of chaos in my environment. I am annoyingly pedantic and tend to take words very literally. I like buying pretty stationery. I like purple, and pink. and I like randomly listing stuff :)

I keep rewriting the bit about photography here, because it's been evolving so much. I started out (in 2010) just pointing at things and snapping, but this whole thing grew on me and now I'd say I am someone who uses a camera to create visual art.

In terms of the technical side, I'm a pretty clueless beginner with a simple point & shoot camera. But I get a huge kick out of taking shots of stuff that I see and sharing some of them with the rest of the world. I'm fascinated by shapes and textures and colours and I love chopping a random rectangle out of the world around me and presenting just that bit, without context - it's the aesthetics I'm into, not the documentary value. Sometimes I mess around with a photo and turn it into an image that is not attempting to be realistic. Digital photo editing tools allow me to take a piece of photography and use it as art material. One of my friends said that what I do is painting without paint. I like that.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

If I've added you, that could be because you said something intelligent in a comment somewhere/your posts look interesting/your profile looks like you might be fun to get to know/I think I know you from somewhere/someone I respect recommended you/a whole load of other reasons. It doesn't mean I expect you to add me back, nor does it mean I necessarily want to be your bestest friend forever and ever. If you want to add me and read my posts, that's cool! Most of my posts are public, and comments are very welcome (as long as they're on topic and courteous, obviously). If you interact with me on my posts, I might get to discover what a fab person you are and add you back. (Though it's perfectly ok to just read quietly and not say anything, if that's what you're comfortable with.)

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I look forward to getting to know you more.

p.s. I don't do Hangouts. I much prefer typing to people than doing that face-to-face live conversation thing where you have to think up answers on the spot and you can't edit and rephrase or delete that totally stupid rash comment - it's bad enough having to do that offline, I don't come to G+ for more of the same. I'm a socially awkward penguin. That's just the way it is.

Newsflash:
Yes, I have a wall. Yes, you can write on it.
