Portraits of Redheaded Stunners by Maja Topcagic

#portraitphotography   #stunners   #ophelia   #majatopcagic  
Redheads' blazing, fiery locks always make them stand out in a crowd, and it is this element of their appearance that Maja Topčagić, a photographer in Bosnia-Herzegovina, focuses on in her beautiful redhead portraits. The vivid colors and bright flowers make the girls in Topčagić's photos seem like mystical summer spirits.

French Documents Question Yeats' Remains

So it turns out that Yeats may have gotten a bit mixed up at the end.

Philip Sheppard + JJ Abrams + Star Wars = Awesome!

I met Philip a few years ago at EG and we got to be friends. Ever since, as he creates music, he's been using my imagery for his albums, including his new one based on the music for this Star Wars trailer. See his new album at https://philipsheppard.bandcamp.com/album/strange-news-from-another-star

And you can hear his incredible music here in the new Star Wars reel that was just released today...

The Yellow Album
 
it's DAY TEN - OUR FINAL DAY of REVEALS
from the 2015 - 15TH ROUND
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

THE SIGN UP FOR THE 16th ROUND of THE SCAVENGER HUNT 
will be held on FRIDAY, JULY 10th 
AT 12 NOON (mountain time zone)

MAKE SURE TO SET YOUR REMINDERS AND WATCH MY STREAM AT EXACTLY 12 NOON TO SIGN UP! 

What  is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, 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  

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
There are 10 categories:
This is the 10TH - the YELLOW 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 month. 

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.

(ONLY ONE 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 YELLOW album,
1 item seen in 333 different ways.

Increasing Number of Americans Support Banning Books

This from the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. The poll used a small number of respondents, and I would like to see how this scales, but the CBLDF reports noticing this trend themselves.
It would be funny if it wasn't so scary.

Jesse Eisenberg Compares SDCC to Genocide

I hate this movie more every time I hear something new about it.
This weekend, actor Jesse Eisenberg, who plays Lex Luthor in next year's Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, was seen at the premiere of The End of the Tour, a film about the release of David Fos...

Introduction
Freelance writer, constant learner and family man.

Hi! Thanks for taking time to visit me here at Google+.

I have been writing, critiquing, reviewing and promoting writers and books for over a dozen years now. I welcome the opportunity to freelance for writers, companies and web sites who need book reviews and for organizations seeking to promote their selves or their programs and products. What I really want to do, however, is write fiction.

Over the years I've had many and sundry day jobs, learning lots of interesting things. In 2009 -- following a disabling on-the-job injury as a delivery driver -- I returned to school to pursue a degree in English.

I have been married for sixteen years to the most wonderful person I have ever known. It's not always easy, but it's always worth it. We reside in West Texas with our two delightful children and a very silly Jackawawa.


These are some circles to which I might like to be added:
  • reading / writing
  • books / publishing
  • art / photography / painting
  • music
  • education
  • business / marketing / leadership
  • geek
