A response to 'Feminists treat men badly. It's bad for feminism'
An article from the Washington Post was shared into my twitter timeline this morning. It made me ANGRY. I went on a twitter rant about, which I've storified here: [ View the story "Response to 'Feminists treat men badly. It's bad for feminism'" on Storify ]...

On (finally) getting a diagnonsis
As most of you know, I've been ill for some time now. Roughly two years in fact. For the first few months I thought I was just over-worked, burned out. But when my physical symptoms didn't improve, even after taking some months for self-care I realised some...

We are officially on DAY ONE of REVEALS
from the 2015 - SWEET 16 ROUND
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What you are about to experience 
over the course of the next 10 days is pretty awesome.
We play a game - 500 photographers and myself -
a photography scavenger hunt.

What is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, to push your limits, to experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event a few times a year
for anyone of any level of photography to participate.

I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers - this round by  +Robin Griggs Wood, +Sandra Parlow and our winner from last round, +Mark Rodriguez   

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 

There are 10 categories:
This is the first - the "*PLUMBER*" album.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement, friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the round. 

This is a negative-free zone -
I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 

Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*PLUMBER*" album,
1 item seen in 106 different ways.

I'm coming Working Class
There has been a lot of talk on my twitter timeline recently about class. Specifically the tensions of negotiating Middle Class spaces as a Working Class woman; and whilst I don't intend to add my comments to what's been happening it has given me the impetu...

Because it made me laugh. :)
If this is the true "Gay Agenda" that people keep talking about, then I'm sold.
