Not a question, just a "thank you" to the folks who have volunteered their time and expertise to this community over the years. Your work is appreciated, and I'll miss this community when the lights go out on the consumer version of G+.

In case you hadn't heard: The sunset date for Google+ has been moved ahead from August 2019 to April 2019. So we have 90 days to figure out our strategies for abandoning G+, relocating, and/or saving whatever data we want to from this system: https://www.blog.google/technology/safety-security/expediting-changes-google-plus/

Can somebody point me to the apparent announcement that sunsetting G+ is going to happen sooner than previously announced? Not that I don't believe it, I'd just like to have a link to share with friends, and searching the Plus (which ought to work, because, you know, GOOGLE) isn't delivering it.

Pointing the Way

Shared for #joinindailyspecifics curated by +Optical Drifter aka +Johnny Wills in which he poses a daily, more specific theme for us to shoot or find.

If you want to join in, post a single photo to the theme and be sure to use the hashtag so we can find it.

Today's theme is "The Letter D," and this sign in downtown Portland, Oregon, has quite a few of those!

Day Four of the latest Scavenger Hunt reveals - loads of fun, clever stuff in this album!
We are officially on DAY FOUR of REVEALS
from the 24th “CREATIVITY NEVER SLEEPS round
of the G+ Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

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.

This event runs a few times a year for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
The game is open to up to 300 Photographers
You get 7 items to shoot
You get a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then they are judged by amazing photographers

Then the albums are opened up to the public over the course of 7 days.
There are 7 categories:
This is the ”FORCED PERSPECTIVE” 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 lets 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 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 - There is 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.
And remember….YOU ALL ROCK!

AGAIN THIS ROUND: PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARDS It’s your turn to choose your 4 favorite images! Here is the link to the form to use to record your choices: https://goo.gl/forms/gGnScHktpZZynKvx2
The instructions are included on the form.

(NOTE: Only one of these images were taken by me - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

Escalator

Today's theme is "An Item that is Yellow and White." This is a balcony view looking down on the vivid yellow escalator at Seattle's downtown public library (a very colorful place!)

Tonight was the annual CookiePalooza bake-a-thon with two of my dearest friends, Ellen and Barb. I can't even remember how many years we've been doing this, but I can tell you that, collectively, we turned out 40 dozen cookies, (a bit shy of last year's record of 57 dozen!), collectively containing 17 3/4 cups of flour, 3 cups of oats, 9 cups of white sugar, 10.5 cups of brown sugar, 7.5 cups of powdered sugar, 1 cup of turbinado sugar, 1/4 cup of light corn syrup, 3/4 cup of molasses, , 3 1/4 lbs of butter, 1 1/2 cups of Crisco, 1/2 cup of oil, 3 cups of pecans, 1 cup of chocolate chips, 11 ounces of "other chocolate", 1 1/2 dozen eggs, 8 tsp baking soda, 3 cups of crushed Vanilla Wafers, 1/4 cup of bourbon, 1 sleeve of saltines, 17 3/4 cups of flour, 7 1/2 tsp of vanilla, 6 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of cloves, 1 tsp powdered ginger, 6 tbsp chopped candied ginger, 1 1/2 cup of gumdrops, 1 1/2 cups of milk with cream added, 1 3/4 tsp salt and 1 1/4 cups of cocoa.
