~ Bird's Eye View ~

I really love ground-level shots looking through the grass. I've seen many beautiful shots like these here on G+ and wondered how it was done. I know it's not as simple as it looks! In the past, my attempts at these captures have produced miserable results. I decided to never try again until I have a DSLR. Well, never, say, "Never"... As I was out one morning, a few days ago, taking shots, the grass was so pretty in the morning light, I just knelt down and took a few shots. Out of dozens of shots I finally had ONE I actually liked! So here it is for #grasstuesday ! :-))

Good night/morning G+ friends!! I wish you a great weekend!!!
this flower is called "floripondio" (here in Mexico), and although its colors are beautiful, you must be a little careful with it. 
Disfruten su fin de semana. :))

II

La Beldad enamorada 
Es humilde floripondio 
Que embalsama los ambientes 
Con su aliento fragancioso.

Cuando la Luna aparece, 
--------------------------
La gallarda flor se pliega 
En pacífico reposo.

Cuando el Sol abrasa el mundo, 
El humilde floripondio 
Estremecido despierta 
--------------------------

----------- Se inclina 
A la tierra el floripondio, 
Como una copa de plata 
Derramando gotas de oro.

Manuel González Prada

Story
Tagline
Just an amateur, photographing the beauty around me :-)
Introduction
I'm attempting to learn photography...

although, I only take pictures with my Android smartphone right now. Getting a simple digital camera is on my to-do list, but I do possess a 35mm Pentax, I've greatly enjoyed using for many years. I also like viewing beautiful photography of others! I've always loved photography, but for many years I've put the desire on the shelf for various reasons. When I first joined Google+, photography was not foremost in my mind. In fact, I avoided anything to do with photography in the beginning!! 

Then, one day, I saw this post http://goo.gl/8mijm by Mike Shaw. In the post he is talking about the passing of a co-worker who was only a few years older than himself. The photo and his thoughts touched me deeply because our family had recently lost a dear friend and two family members very close together. As I looked at his photo, how it captured the message he was sending, how I completely agreed and embraced it, something inside me clicked. 

His words, "...treat each day as if it is your last, go out and live and breathe, stop putting off the adventure's you want to take because one day you will put it off one day too many" made me say, " Yeah, I wanna do THAT." 'THAT' being to inspire, encourage, and challenge others in some way by a photo and a thought, like I had just been. 

Mike Shaw's post served to clarify my direction, but I still wouldn't post any of my photos until many months later after stumbling all over the place on G+, LOL! Anyway, it was after I got my Android phone that I finally took my love for photography off the shelf and jumped in with both feet! Note to self: being bitten by the Shutterbug is incurable. ;-)

I am still fairly new to the Google+ community. I joined shortly after Google+ was no longer by invitation only. So far, I'm finding G+ very refreshing. I learn something new here almost everyday. I've met a wide variety of people here who have been very helpful. All have been very willing to share their knowledge with this newbie and accepting me into the G+ community. I find the positive atmosphere simply inspiring. I hope to pass that inspiration along in my posts!

In real life, I'm a shy person. I don't carry on conversations very well, (I think). But, I've found being on Google Plus has helped me bloom a little in this area and taken me out of my comfort zone of just listening or reading and being an observer only. Jumping into comment threads is not so intimidating now. :-)  If I don't fully understand something, I'm not afraid to ask to questions, because I've found people on G+ to be very helpful, which is extremely refreshing! 

The most helpful sites I recommend to any Google Plus newbie are: 
  • Google+
  • Google+ Help
  • the g+ resource
  • CircleCount
  • Gmail
  • Google
For those new to Google Plus, you can search the following #hashtags to find helpful posts and information:
#googleplushelp #googleplustips #newtogoogleplus #newbieshelp #newbies #helpme 

I've been married to my wonderful husband, Walter, for 20+ years and we have one very talented son, Daniel, who plays guitar like his Dad. I love hearing them play! Oh, and I can't forget our sweet cat, Prissy, who is about seventeen years old! Yes, you will have to endure a cat photo once in a while, mainly on Caturday. :-)

Just so you know, I am a conservative by nature and my Christian faith is very important to me and our family. But fear not, I will not flood your stream with posts concerning my faith or political views. So, don't be shy about adding me.

Favorite quotes: "God will never violate His Word, but He will violate our understanding of His Word."  ~ Bill Johnson, Pastor of Bethel Church, Redding, CA.

"All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

My stream and posts are always G-rated. Why? Because I believe in Philippians 4:8 ~ "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." 

I will occasionally post or share funny stuff because I'm a jokester at heart. :-) I occasionally write poetry, if the mood strikes. Also, if something has been helpful or useful to me I will pass it along. If something has touched my heart, I will share it. When I post photos, if I did not take them, I will always post the name of the author or photographer. If the author is unknown, I will always post a source link. My own mobile or Pentax photos will most always have the following hashtags: amateurphotography, mobilephotography, mobilography, Androidography, 35mmphotography, filmphotography, or Pentax.

I'm a huge bookworm! I love to read a good books. Mysteries, thrillers, biographies, funny stuff, etc. Google+ feeds this passion as there is such good content here! I love listening to good music too. Jazz, some classical, Christian rock/worship, classic rock.

Some of my favorite TV shows are:
#1 on the list is Fringe! Sadly, this series has concluded.
Once Upon A Time, Person of Interest, Major Crimes, Revolution, Marvel: Agents of Shield, Blacklist, Elementary, Under The Dome, The Closer, Burn Notice, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Brad Meltzer's Decoded, Storm Chasers, Eureka, and Lost. 
I'm a new Doctor Who fan.
I've been a Star Trek trekkie all of my life. 
I like Star Wars.
I love NASCAR, NFL and college football!
I am *NOT* a gamer or a zombie fan, so don't put me in those circles.


I love the beach and the mountains, but each in their seasons. I love thunderstorms too! I love watching a storm roll in, seeing the clouds form, getting darker, lightning flashing, feeling and hearing the rumble of thunder and then watching the rain fall. I should have been a storm chaser in another life!!

Circling
If you are still reading, (hopefully), I have a simple Circling Protocol I follow. To be in my circles, a individual's stream must pass this protocol. Also, I do not always circle back. Even if I like your posts, I may not immediately circle you back, I prefer to wait a little while. The only exception to this is if you are in a shared circle from someone already in my circles, whom I trust, I will circle you back fairly quickly. 

You will NOT be circled if your stream contains any of the following: 
  • Extreme profanity 
  • Pornography
  • Hate speech or racism of any kind
  • Demeaning or belittling commentary of my or any persons: beliefs/faith (no matter what they are), political persuasion, or sexual preference/lifestyle
  • Rude, crude or overly suggestive/offensive posts/jokes
  • Nudity
  • Numerous Gif posts
  • You post too frequently (i.e. posting every second or minute in an hour)
  • No profile info, No profile photo
  • No recent posts, no public posts, or you post only to Communities
  • Trying to sale me a product or service
  • Constant re-sharing of others posts, but no original content of your own.
  • Your stream resembles Facebook
  • Overly negative posts or boring content
  • Also, If I have circled you as a result of a shared circle and I discover any of the above on your profile or in my G+ stream, I will uncircle you.
I look forward to meeting new people! If you have a  question, please ask. If I can answer it, I will do so.
Thanks so very much for taking the time to read this! God bless! :-))
