Taken yesterday for my baby girl's 1 month photo. The photo itself sums up how well it went, haha. I got a few sweet and tranquil ones but this one cracks me up and has ended up being my favorite. It's so real.

Let’s Publish Plus One Collection III - SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW ACCEPTED!

Want to be in the next volume of Plus One Collection charity book? Read on and act now!

Ever since Google+ launched, we’ve been publishing photography books that contained some of the best photographs you shared. We published two volumes so far. It wasn’t just a nice coffee table book - but all proceeds from the sale went to great causes. Two years ago we raised over $10,000 for Kiva. A year ago we raised over $13,000 for the Kilgoris Project and we bought cameras for kids in Kenya. This year’s cause will soon be announced, but as usual, all proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit a charitable cause. 

You can see more here (though the website will soon be updated to include this year’s information) - http://plusonecollection.com/

Who can get published? Anyone! We hope to get as many submissions as possible. Due to the volume, we can’t publish them all, but we will publish as many as we can. 

Is there a theme this year? Yes, there is. The theme for this year’s book is “Our World” and the book will be split into three sections - “Our Planet”, “Our People” and “Our Creations”. You can interpret it however you’d like - we’d love to see how you express these. 

Do we accept color or B&W images? Either one is great.

How can you submit the work? Here are simple instructions: 

1 - Download and fill out image release form from here - http://goo.gl/brpX6n (you can even scan it using your phone, or use apps such as SignNow or TurboScan)
2 - Fill out the information about yourself and upload your work here - http://form.jotform.us/form/40565430045144
3 - Upload your submission to Google+, and tag it with #PlusOneCollectionIII tag 

Can you submit more than one image? Sure! You can submit first image for free. To submit three images to all three themes, or even three images to one theme (which increases your chances to get published), please make a small donation of $20 to our charitable cause (again, all of that will be donated with the book proceeds). Here’s the link to donate via PayPal - http://goo.gl/OSwT9k

Will you showcase all the submissions? Yes. All submissions will show up in the SmugMug gallery we will setup in the next day or two. Please allow 48 hours for your photo to appear there. 

When will you announce which images made it into the book? We will announce it in early April. 

The last day to submit your images is March 17!

Please help us spread the world about this by sharing this post. 

Questions? Leave them in the comments.

I want to be there.
 
Sildpollnes, Lofoten

Sildpollnes is one of the first places you`ll pass when you enter the Lofoten Islands. There is nothing grand about it, except there is a beautiful white Church located here, and it also has a great view towards some of the most amazing and dramatic peaks in Lofoten.

Here i am looking towards the Trollfjordmassif, with Geitgaljen and Higravtinden visible in the shot. These peaks are simply amazing...

If you want to explore Northern Norway and the legendary #Lofoten Archipelagos in particular, please check out www.lofotentours.com - New tours are available for booking. Tourguides are +Stian Klo   and yours truly. The dates are as follows:

An Illusion of Perfection

Everyone of us is striving for that balance in our lives. Chasing after a fleeting perfection and making ourselves miserable in the process at times. Learn to let go. Let the puzzle pieces fall where they may. I've been a recovering perfectionist for about two years now. I still care about things and strive to do good work but I don't allow them to enslave me like they have in the past. Such "things" and "stuff" aren't my identify. It's so incredibly freeing once you un-yolk yourself. Love life, enjoy it, do the best you can and be filled with thanksgiving for each breath. Have a wonderful and blessed week my friends!

Close-up cropped zoom of the latest image I've been working on this week. I'd love to share it by Friday. This image is really challenging me creatively. I feel like going multiple directions with it, yet my instinctive path may be a bit much, haha. We'll see how this one pans out. It is still teasing me with it's mystery ending.
