Following my contribution to #sacredsunday last week (https://plus.google.com/104627284419784468591/posts/h711GaXiHV1), I chose to keep on posting photos from Sri Lanka.

Unfortunately, I did not have enough material from Dambulla to make a series out of it (as asked by +Bill Wood), so I went with a different approach with another religion.

It is an interesting fact about Sri Lanka that not only Buddhism is respected (69% of the population is buddhist), but 3 other major religions are equally important:
Hinduism – 7,8%
Islam – 7,6%
Christianity – 6,2%

Here is an example with a church called St Sebastian, in Negombo, a fisherman's town not too far from Colombo.

#project52 #2012project52 [9/52 – In the workplace] I bought this tee-shirt a few months ago, and when receiving it I immidiately felt like I should leave it at work, on my chair. "Just Say No to Negativity" belongs in the workplace, so here is my submission, with my desk and my chair.

G+ idea : Tags VS Albums for photos?

I have been thinking about it for a few months, either when looking to share photos or looking at photo albums :
I would love the "Photos" section of profiles to work by tags rather than albums.

You can check my (modest) mockup below or… keep on reading :))

Before I go further, I know this might be a power user issue (at least when it comes to sharing), but I really do feel like discovery could be more interesting for anyone!

So, here is how I think about it:

Photo – Home:
Everything should work based on this page, and immersive discovery would be total straight away.

Instead of view a list of albums with "small" thumbnails, all photos are displayed just like within the current layout for albums.

To browse through photos, people do not scroll, they simply filter by tags, which were chosen by the profile owner.
And for better discovery, users can sort photos by recency or popularity

Example:
Today: If I take photos in Spain, I might just create one album "Spain". Then, I will share this album, and I'm happy. But… as a power user / photographer, I will have different subjects… landscapes, portraits, etc. So how do I share these subjects specifically? I cannot, and my viewers cannot find them easily
How I'd love it to be: Well, you have guessed it, I add specific tags, Spain, Landscape, Portrait, etc, and I choose to share an album regrouping "Spain AND Landscape" or just "Portrait", which would includes portraits taken… in Spain, but also previous ones.

I would love to get your feedback on this idea, which I already talked about rapidly in a hangout with +Brian Rose.

Inspired by some of +David Keochkerian great shots (such as this https://plus.google.com/103413026854903721037/posts/Y59Q4shrYjD), I gave architecture shots a try and came up with this which I quite like, but I still have some work to do to make it perfect I guess :).

Jut to let you know of a nice designer bundle @ +Envato.
For $20 you get some themes, some wordpress plugins, graphic elements, etc. Well, you get more than $500 worth of creative materials, so just have a look and see if even just 10% might be of use!

#project52 #2012project52 [8/52 – Other Photographers] This week we had a #photowalkparis #photowalk in Paris, organized by MariCruz Suarez together with +Thomas Paris (through +Photowalk Paris) What a good way to take a picture of some other photographers :). I shot a few but liked this one about "stealing" a shot of someone while he is being shot by… another photographer.
