It is interesting to see how Google+ is evolving as a social platform.  I am really enjoying my experience there and have found it a great way to meet a lot of photographers.   I have quickly been able to build a network of photographers in most countries that I can think of.   As a photographer it is a great way to get mass exposure for your work.    I found the photographer community there very engaging.  I arranged a photo walk last week and met a heap of great photographers.   It was a very rewarding experience to bring a lot of people together and I plan to do more of these.  I will do one in Tokyo when it cools down a bit and I plan to do one in New York City when I am there in October.

If you are not on Google+ I highly recommend joining.  If you need an invite to Google+ contact via the link in the menu bar above.   After you join Google+ it will give you a list of Interesting and Famous People they recommend following and I was very surprised to find out I am on the list!   Not sure how that happened…
