The AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER'S (FROM AROUND THE WORLD) Circle –– Fresh Share –– Announcement Post

#CircleSharingForThePeopleAPC1  

Note! I have emptied the old AP circles so if you previously were included in this circle, you MUST ask for inclusion again.

This circle will be shared the coming Monday at noon CET.

Want to be included in the popular APC? You may be an amateur or a professional photographer, all are welcome to join this circle as long as you mainly share your own quality photography in your feed.

READ before asking for inclusion!

1) Plus and Reshare this announcement post. Why? If you want to be promoted, it's only fair that you help promote others. Do NOT remove the reshared circle posts from your feed immediately after I have added you to the circle. Doing so will get you banned from all my future circle shares.

2. Ask for inclusion in the comments and please state which kind of photography you are into and that you HAVE plussed and reshared. I will check every feed.

3. Make sure that you mainly share your own original photography in your feed. If there are too many reshares of other peoples' work, irrelevant YouTube clips, animated GIFS, blog post teasers etc., I might not add you to the circle. The APC is a validated quality circle that should bring people great photography to their feeds.

4. Add me to your circles (NOT mandatory) if you want to be included in my VIP Photography Circle and receive tips, tricks and specials not available in my  main feed. 

Have something to say about my circles? Wanna know what others gained from being in the circles? Then go here: https://plus.google.com/116219534929662479848/posts/7Evg2rSE2Hv 
You will also find testimonials from people that have gained thousands of new followers via my shared circles.

NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the circle. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this announcement post and let me know that you did so.

*This announcement post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeopleAPC1 so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post in the future. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares.* 

Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/

Cheers!

Climbing up the S-Curve

This nice little path is in a park right next where I live in "Saint-Cloud".
Even though the park is really tiny, I feel like these few steps following the S-Curve invite you to a much bigger forest of some sort.

Britton Tuscany

Born in Brest, a port on the northern atlantic coast of France, I was raised in Rennes, therefore living in Brittany, this nice and sunny region of France, from the day I was born till I graduated from high school.

I was lucky enough to spend the week-end at my parents' this week-end, and I was even luckier to find some sun hiding there :).

This shot is from Rennes' most famous park downtown, the "Thabor", with – among many other areas – this lovely rose garden.

What you see in the background is my former middle (and high) school, Saint Vincent, which always seemed to me like an old Tuscan Penintenciary (in Italy)!
Today's weather kind of reinforced this feeling!

Of course, this is for +Project52-2012  curated by +Giuseppe Basile +Kate Church moderated by +Greg Berdan +LaDonna Pride +Sue Butler.

Today (sunday) we had a nice little walk in Saint Denis (Paris suburb), with +Photowalk Paris.

What seemed to be starting off like another rainy/wintery day turned out to be quite a pleasant one! 

Weather did not matter so much as this was an indoor photowalk… yet… as we were visiting Saint Denis' Basilica, sun was more than welcome to allow for some nice little shots playing with colors/light/etc.

The highlighted shot of this album is such an example : A standard grey grid on the floor, offering a totally different perspective once illuminated by the sun through stained glass.

Thanks +Photowalk Paris / +Thomas Paris  for this walk and of course, this fits pretty well with +SacredSunday™  #sacredsunday  as well, curated by +Manfred Berndtgen +Robyn Morrison +Margaret Tompkins +Sherrie von Sternberg.

#project52   #2012project52  [27/52 – Red, White, Blue]

Catching up :), with my Week 27's shot which is not Red White and Blue but a turly French Blue White and Red!
I shot it yesterday night (well, to be honest, this is a composite between two shots, I did not get the chance to see an actual Blue-White-Red moment ;)), during Paris' Bastille Day fireworks.
It was a first for me in "Saint Cloud", west of Paris, and I did not take enough time to find the perfect location, but I feel like I did quite ok with this last minute choice.

Of course, this is for +Project52-2012  curated by +Giuseppe Basile +Kate Church moderated by +Greg Berdan +LaDonna Pride +Sue Butler      
But also for #sacredsunday   #sacredsunday  by +Manfred Berndtgen +Robyn Morrison +Margaret Tompkins +Sherrie von Sternberg, as these yearly fireworks are pretty sacred to me (my favourite being from 2 years ago : https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/104627284419784468591/albums/5631741362062548177/5631741608080591586 )

Kickstarter really is an amazing service

Crowdfunding is great, and Kickstarter just works perfectly at it.
Today, I "backed" a project for a little over $100.

This project is "Ouya", a game console based on Android, focusing on making it easier for developers to produce games for the TV (as compared to how difficult it can be to see your game on the big 3 Nintendo/Xbox/Playstation), and on making it cheap for consumers, while very flexible (they encourage software/hardware hacking and… the fact that it runs Android means that you can do pretty much anything with it).

This kickstarter project was launched approximately 15 hours ago and it has already reached its 1 month target: $950,000. Within 24 hours, it will have reached the million.

EDIT : OK, Million reached already.

Embedded Link

OUYA: A New Kind of Video Game Console
Cracking open the last closed platform: the TV. A beautiful, affordable console — built on Android, by the creator of Jambox.

#project52   #2012project52    [26/52 – Water]

#project52   #2012project52    [26/52 – Water]

I thought I could never be that behind in this project, and I hate it!
But oh well, it only means that my life is quite busy at the moment (not that it should stop me from taking my camera out a bit!)

So here I am, three weeks late, with this "Water" theme.

Let me introduce you to : "Optimist VS Pessimist : Just drink it"
From the day I read the theme I knew I wanted to bring it down that road, but never took the time to do so!

Water is theme for week 26… which means we are half way through the year, and our glass is being filled/emptied as time flies.

This year, I feel like mine is being filled, and this shoot illustrates so as well, as it was shot on the balcony at my new appartment.
2012 : New job, new flat, I sure don't see the glass, I just drink the water :).

Of course, this is for +Project52-2012 curated by +Giuseppe Basile +Kate Church moderated by +Greg Berdan +LaDonna Pride +Sue Butler     
But also for #glassworldtuesday  by +Jana Smith.

Have a great week… but I'll be back catching up with the missing weeks.

This video was thought about 20 years ago by one of these characters and is amazingly amazing.
Incredibly creative, oh and yeah, I know, there's only one single character.

I wish I had thought of that when I was 12. Oh… and too bad he did not go on with some questios for his 2032 self, the chain would have been hilarious (even more so if 1992's Jeremiah had thought of these two steps (or maybe even 3 or 4 steps?)).
