It is certainly an honor to be included again with such fine folks! Thank you +Dubie Bacino!
 
Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino (17th Edition)

This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is inspiring content that will enhance your Google+ experience. 
-----------------------------------------

When it comes to #CircleSharing, my practice is to share only two of my circles every month:  

- ENGAGERS: this is a way of saying thank you to those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and

- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.

To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content. If you want me to notice you, be active in one or all of my communities (see below).

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

To connect with me, the best place is my appearoo page: http://appearoo.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/

One of the earliest signs of Spring is the appearance of bulbs in the garden, and our daffodils are in bloom, along with hyacinth, and the tulips are not far behind. This group of hyacinth was one of the first to boldly appear, with vibrant purple…

In case you missed this last night...my wife did a blog post about something her mom told her, and it's the best advice I've gotten all year (and the feedback on her post has been incredible from people all over the world who are acting on that advice). You should take a moment and read this. http://kel.by/1DUhpO3

Fantastic post. Why would we miss the time we're actually spending with someone to focus on an electronic gadget that is most likely being used to occupy time.

Making us thankful for what we have...
The Russian village of Oymyakon is widely recognized as the coldest in the world, with average winter temperatures reaching below -58 degrees fahrenheit. Making the treacherous trip from the frigid city of Yakutsk, to the village, New Zealand-based travel photographer Amos Chapple documents daily life in the remote region, where the entirety of civilization is subject to the whims of the snowy Siberian landscape.
