San Bernardino Shootings (Updates)
As of now, there are apparently 3-4 suspects. There could be 2 suspects on the run.
If you're wondering why there's a big concern on my behalf, it's because my school is surrounded by government offices. The place that got attacked was a Health Center that worked with handicapped people. Right next door to the AI, there is an Employment Department that helps with the unemployed. A little further down, there's a CHP station, with a dialysis center sharing walls with the campus, as well as a two clinics down the road from that. A university of Phoenix and a Wells Fargo office is across the street from us.
Seeing that these gunmen were "well prepared", some of my biggest fears right now may involve bombs around the campus grounds, due to its presence near so many government facilities. If this group is what I suspect it to be, then I'm really worried about my school becoming "collateral damage" because it's a "useless building for useless people."

A Small Tribute to the San Bernardino Shootings...
This is kind of late but this is my small tribute to the San Bernardino Shootings. The things I use in this post aren't mine but I have thought that they were appropriate. May there one day be an end to the violence and may the victims rest in peace...

San Bernardino Mass Shooting
Hey guys, I don't think you've heard but there was a shoot out at a party at the Inland Regional Center at San Bernardino two days ago. A married couple, both Muslim started a mass shootout and shot so many people. 
14 people were killed, 21 wounded and most of them were the shooters' friends.
The two were killed in police gunfire and some believe that they pledge allegiance to the Terrorism group ISIS.
What makes it more devastating is that their friends and their own family members never knew about the pledge and to add to that they had a 6 month old baby.
The FBI's still investigating the case but I feel sorry for the people and their losses in San Bernardino, this goes to show all of us that ISIS will do whatever they can to spread their evil terrorism all across the globe via internet.
What I do know is that what they want, they won't get it. So please if ISIS wants to recruit you, DO NOT PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THAT WICKED GROUP!!!!!!!!!!!

San Bernardino Mass Shooting..
This is very frightening.
There is now a possible bomb threat in the area. The airport is not that far away from my work. Suspicious devices are being found. A possible threat of a bigger scheme. Holy moly..
This shouldn't be happening.

I'm Alive (San Bernardino Shooting)
Hey, everyone, I know I haven't been as active on here and that's because of some really good reasons. 
First reason: I had a cancer scare.
Well, still do. I'm under strict doctor care and could go into surgery depending on if the pain worsens or not. It's making me really fatigued and I could sleep for days, so I've had no energy to even come onto here or any other website or even log into Skype to talk to people and Io'm really sorry about it. I'm hoping to snap out of it soon, I got back into boxing training to help and it is so far but only making the fatigue worse. Ugh!
Second Reason: Career Focus
I've been heavily sucked into work and that eats up most of my time. I now live in Los Angeles and work in the film industry working on all sorts of projects for different studios and the like and am now wrapping up a short. The days are long but worth it, but by the time I get home I'm ready for bed. I'll link videos and my projects soon enough for

The names of all the Gallery Folders have changed. The folders are now DESTINATION specific within the 3 regions of California. This change is in preparation for uploading graphics (photos) to KALIFORNIA NOW - "theHUB".

"theHUB" is our content management system which will be used for all editors, photographers and writers. We will send you the URL to "theHUB" shortly so you can sign up, login and familiarize yourselves with this awesome software. These changes will be consistent with the naming convention for Kalifornia Now, the online magazine.

It is imperative for every photograph submitted to follow this uniform naming convention.

The naming convention is: Destination (space) - (space) Description
2 examples below:
Los Angeles - People on Sunset Strip
Yosemite - El Capitan at sunset, taken October 2010.

PLEASE familiarize yourself with the naming convention and the new folders. Earlier submissions do not need to be changed, just your new submissions.

If you have a number of graphics for a specific DESTINATION, and you do not see a folder for your destination, please upload to "EVERYTHING ELSE" and send us a note. We will create a folder for the graphics and move them to the new folder.

As we anticipate thousands of graphics submitted to Kalifornia Now - theHUB, I can not stress the importance of the naming convention format enough. If you have any questions, please send me a note.

*NOTE: Once "theHUB" is ready, we will invite all members to a free online webinar using "go to meeting". Our class will provide education on the use of "theHUB" and our editorial policies for Kalifornia Now.


SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: Gallery submissions will require a majority vote from our administrative staff. We will use the following criteria in judging submissions:

COMPOSITION: Balance. Rule of thirds. Leading lines. Good focus and clearly defined subject. Depth of field. Shutter speed. Level horizon line.

LIGHTING: White balance. Subject highlights and shadows.

POST PROCESSING: Composite photo manipulation is allowed. Well done post processing is encouraged.

NUDE PHOTOGRAPHY/ART is not allowed.

WATERMARKS: All images with the default DeviantART watermark will be automatically disqualified. We understand and appreciate the need for watermarks for security's sake, but it is the photographer's responsibility to ensure that the watermark does not detract from the overall image.

WE ONLY ACCEPT EXQUISITE HIGH QUALITY PHOTOGRAPHIC IMAGES taken in and of California to our photography folders.

Must have a detailed description of where in California the image was taken.

WE ONLY ACCEPT EXQUISITE HIGH QUALITY PAINTINGS/ART WORK that depict California to our Paintings folder.

The naming convention is: Destination (space) - (space) Description. This format must be followed. See Blog entry APRIL 9TH, 2011 for details.



This dA super-group is affiliated with the new online magazine Kalifornia Now, which, as we speak is being programmed. We anticipate the publication to be up early in the 3rd quarter of this year at

You do not need to live in California to be a member, but the photographs must have a clear description identifying it as being taken in and of California.

Kalifornia Now is a new online magazine presented by a successful internet entrepreneur, pioneer and publisher. Our mission is to become the exclusive premier California magazine portal on the internet. We invite you to join our group. Once launched and you are accepted to become a content contributor, Kalifornia Now will highlight your work in your own showcase page.

You are very welcome...

I'm new to the group and after having done considerable wandering I still haven't located your daily/weekly/monthly limits for submission...if you could let me know, I'd be appreciative.

Also I have a bit of confusion over the way to submit to the selected areas of San Francisco (and do new submissions now have to be renamed for the hub?) when I submit through the normal way it only gives me "San Fransisco" not the individual list...

Thanks for the help and for accepting me to this group :blowkiss:
zootnik Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2011
Great questions.... at this time no limit on number of photos that can be submitted...our hub upload is still being worked out. San Francisco is the correct file for any thing in the city...There will be an update coming soon..

OK - thanks for the info! And for accepting everything I've submitted so far :iconsomeredhearts:

I want to thank you for including several of my pictures of California in your site. I am well aware that neither my photographic skills, nor my equipment (a simple digital camera) match the excellent photographers that display their works here. When I see their pictures I am in awe (this is not flattery, just a fact); I mean, who goes to Yosemite in the freezing cold to take a picture?
Only a true photographer would do that - and we're all
richer because they (you) do. I love California, it's a beautiful place, and - once again - thank you for allowing me to show my images of it, even if they fall far short of the quality of the other photographers that put up works here.
