Hey Google Plus! Enough is Enough! + An UPDATE

So I feel like I have been caught in my own trap lately. I have respect for you, but it seems like the Google+ team is literally supporting only certain bw street photographers (one of them is also the owner of a bw community). In fact, it's really weird to see 3 b&w street profiles boosting their plusones in one night! (from their usual 100 or 200 plusones per post to 6,000, or even 7,000!)

What's going on here guys?

Anyway, after all this...should I quit Google Plus? I wonder...


It's been a while since I visited here. But after careful consideration and much thought I'm sorry to say that I might quit +Google+.

Thank you: +CircleCount ;) +Carter Gibson ;)

For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution."

I love this quote by Albert Einstein. Don't you? ;)

What I learned in life is...

© 2017 Betty Manousos Photography

"That no matter how good a person is,
sometimes they can hurt you and because of this we must forgive.
It takes years to build trust and only seconds to destroy it.
We don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.
The circumstances and the environment influence on our lives,
but we are the one who responsible for ourselves.
That you have to control your acts or they will control you.
That patience requires much practice.. that there are people who love us,
but simply don’t know how to show it.
That sometimes the person you think will hurt you and make you fall.
Is instead one of the few who will help you to get up.
You should never tell a child that dreams are fake, it would be a tragedy if they knew.
It’s not always enough to be forgiven by someone,
in most cases you have to forgive yourself first.
That no matter in how many pieces your heart is broken, the world doesn’t stop to fix it .
Maybe God wants us to meet all the wrong people first before meeting the right one.
So when we finally meet the right one we are grateful for that gift.
When the door of happiness closes, another door opens.
but often we look so long at the closed one.. we don’t see what was open for us .
The best kind of a friend is the kind in which you can sit on a porch and walk.
Without saying a word and when you leave it feels it was the best conversation you ever had.
It’s true we don’t know what we have until we find it, but its also true,
we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives.
It only takes a minute to offend someone, an hour to like someone,
a day to love someone, but it takes a life time to forget someone.
Don’t look for appearances, they can be deceiving, don’t go for wealth even that can fade,
Find someone who makes you smile, because it only takes a smile to make a day better,
find what makes your heart smile.
There are moments in life when you miss someone so much.
that you wish you can take them out of your dream and hug them for real..
Dream what you want, go wherever you want to go because you have only one life and one change to do the things you want to do.
The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything,
they just make the best of everything that comes their way.
The best future is based on the forgotten past..
You can’t go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches."

~Paulo Coelho
