Google+ Explosion?

So, I posted the Paris photo below about 24 hours ago exclusively first to Google+. It spread very quickly and I woke up to see I was in the top 25 of all 15+ million Google+ users. This is really crazy, but it has been very fun!

See the Paris Photo post here in Google+. It ended up getting shared by many people, and, sort of like a virus, the follower count shot way up. It swamps Twitter and Facebook…and has been really interesting to compare. But no worries, the blog here will always be my mothership, where I put long-form thoughts and the daily photo…

Daily Photo – Reflections on the Eiffel Tower

Isn’t it romantic? What could be more perfect than a beautiful sunset here in Paris?

There was a big storm all day long, but I could see the clouds were beginning to break up a little to the west, and I knew there was a possibility the sun would dip into an opening beneath the heavy clouds. So, with that intense possibility, I headed over to the Eiffel Tower area hoping the light would turn out right…

I also made a behind-the-scenes video. Since you guys have been so nice over on Google+, I’ll share that video exclusively there first, so be sure to stay tuned… I’m still editing the thing together!
