Ding Dong
Oh... so when I was referring to Ding Dong - I was just noodling around w/ the iDJPro I got over Xmas ( +Scott Kelby  ) - Had been listening to this song by Elephant Man feat Ding Dong earlier in the PM.  Wanted to see how well the +Numark  iDJPro would autocrab something a lot faster. Still need to feel your way into where to end  but it does surprisingly well .  

(2 min of random looping and old school scratch.  If you're not into Reggae, Hip Hop, or Scratch - i'd suggest you pass)

+RC Concepcion  please stop teasing and put the app on the google play! I am enjoying the 24hour trial right now, and I have to say that the mobile version of is quite hard to use. :-( I hope the android app will fix that. There is lots of great content! If you let me watch it offline on my nexus7 I am yours! :-)

Loved the first book and as a kelbyOne member I wanted to preorder the book through kelbyOne but as a United Kingdom based member the near $100 dollar shipping fee I think is a bit steep, I realize the shipping options are for overnight / 2 day shipping so will be expensive, but it would be a nice idea if there could be a normal shipping option as I don't mind waiting more time to get the book.

Is the G+ Photography Community Dying?

Is it me, or has anyone noticed how slow G+ has been recently? But its more than that. I also don't see as many familiar faces as i used too. Die hards that joined and were very active from around 2 years ago.. barely touch base here anymore.. opting to post more actively on Facebook and other platforms? Other friends deleted accounts for a variety of reasons. And then recently i was sad to learn that a core G+ photography theme #MacroMonday is closing it's page with its original curators 'retiring.  'What does it mean? 

I started noticing people leaving and the change just over a year ago when communities were introduced and more changes were made to the SUL. Is it the communities? Has it changed how G+ photographers engage and relate on here potentially for the worse?  (I.e, people are here we just don't see them or their work as much anymore since they are being posted in communities) Is it the SUL that people are tired of --with a baffling select group of photographers getting the lion's share of engagement and interaction on here based on cronyism? Is it all the changes G+ has made to the look and feel and more importantly the notification systems as well has the 'recommended' algorithms? Are our posts just not reaching each other the way they used to and/or is G+ is simply not 'showing' us more work of those in our circles? In  G+'s quest to personalize,  have they inadvertendly created exclusion? Or is G+ too glitchy now..with commenting problems and technical issues sharing etc?  Or is it something else entirely that i'm missing?  

I know i'm not the only one wondering this as others have mentioned it to me and others have left or are all but gone?  I would love to hear other peoples opinions on this or any answers people might have! 

(p.s and then i'm laughing as i don't even know if anyone is going to see this to reply?) :)

I allow think a lot of people, like me, tend to think we're lacking the knowledge to make comments that mean anything. You can see my photo resume and you see that of many on here....and well why would anyone even think I have something to add the big guys and gals would think valuable. That discourages a lot of comments. Instead we observe, take it in and surf along.
