When i was shooting some photos earlier this evening, a lady walked by and as she passed me she asked, "Are you taking a photo? How can you shoot when it's so dark?" I said there's light here and I'm shooting with a long exposure. She looked at me suspiciously. I asked, "Would you like to see what I shot?" She said, "Yes."

I showed he the photo I had just shot and she said, "That's amazing. I didn't know you could do that." The she asked, "What kind of camera is that?" I said, "It's a Nikon."

She replied, "That's a really good camera." Then she walked on.

It was funny. No acknowledgement of my role in creating the photograph. To her it was all the camera, I was just a person pushing a button.

I get that a lot.

The lack of technical knowledge and common sense of the government is frightening. Since they don't have a clue and haven't bought one yet. Maybe they could try rent-to-own a clue. [shakes my head in frustration]

Google's new privacy policy: Washington's misguided interrogation | ZDNet
Even though the new policy doesn’t change how Google operates, lawmakers are using it as a springboard into an inquiry over user privacy.

This post is a spinoff from a post by +Carms Perez about Google+ and circles

This post is a spinoff from a post by +Carms Perez about Google+ and circles. Naturally the comments on the post included some discussion about Facebook. Due to my photography, I am on a number of social sites. As someone that's trying to build their photography business and attract new people to my photography website, I look at Facebook as another avenue for my business. My reason for having a FB page isn't primarily social. Overall I view it as a piece of my overall SEO strategy. The largest purchases of my photography have come though the contact for on my photography site via search engines.

On Google+, I am here as myself, but my name is closely intertwined with my photography. I've found Google+ to be an awesome place to meet my social, informational, and photography needs. Having said that, my activities here are important to me for so many reasons.

I learned from +Carms Perez that there is apparently a current limit of 5,000 people in our circles. That was news to me, I haven't gained that level of popularity yet. Many thanks to +Carms Perez for sharing that in her post.

Peace
