I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050114186132

Maki Silberberg0FOOD PHOTOGRAPHERS CIRCLE!A little while ago +Isabelle Fortin asked the G+ World if anyone knew of any food photographers she could circle.  Any mention of "Food" and "photography" in one sentence gets my attention so I decided to help her out with what she started.  Lo and behold, 270 people later, we have a circle.  And I have lots of new friends :DSpecial thanks to +Mary Helen Leonard and +Gabriel Bucataru who both had significant food photography circles in progress and shared it with usIf you're interested in food and/or photography, this is the circle to add!  If you're hungry, make sure to go get something to eat before checking out these people's delicious photographs ;)  You've been warned! 2012-11-30 20:41:1827018512

Gene Bowker39,058How to have a better stream - Part One #StreamCircle  Someone recently mentioned to me about how they couldn't seem to find good photography in their stream.Well.. here is my way to help that.These are active photographers who have a variety of styles and cover everything from point-and-shooters to some of the top pro's on G+.  I've been through each one's stream and they all can offer you something to make your stream better. Say howdy to them and see if your stream is not a more visual place.Like the circle.. feel free to share it and help share some great photographers.I'll share the 2nd 1/2 of this circle in the next few days.2012-08-13 23:27:51351946663

Beautiful nature inspiration for you this morning - this is the Uvac River Canyon in Serbia. It is an international transboundary river, rising under Golija mountain and Pešter plateau.

This week our little hummingbird has been stocking up on nectar. It's almost time for him to make his journey South and he's working hard to fatten himself up. I watch him every day and will miss the smile's he brings me.

Today is 9-11 and this morning I dropped my daughter off at Jr. High just at the time that the principal was having a moment of all school silence to remember 9-11. Then we said the pledge of allegiance. I teared up and barely got through it. I walked out of the school bleary-eyed and tearful remembering the screams from the tv coverage of the towers crashing. 13 years later and it feels like yesterday. #NeverForget #911anniversary

Love this gorgeous view of the ocean!

We've had some fairly high waves for our neck of the woods this past week––some as high 20 feet, with multiple reports of rescues from people who just didn't have a clue. Yesterday, they were only about 10 feet high, but still gorgeous to witness.

What a beautiful orchid. :-)

Moth Orchid (Phalaenopsis)

One of the most popular orchids in trade, the moth orchid’s scientific name is probably a reference to the genus Phalaena,which was given to a large group of moths. And it’s not difficult to see why it got its name – some of the species closely resemble moths in flight.

I love +Randy Hume's beautiful sunflower shot. Full of Flower Power! :-)

Sunflowers   On a beautiful day   
To grow best, sunflowers need full sun. They grow best in fertile, moist, well-drained soil with heavy mulch. In commercial planting, seeds are planted 45 cm (1.5 ft.) apart and 2.5 cm (1 in) deep. Sunflower "whole seed" (fruit) are sold as a snack food, raw or after roasting in ovens, with or without salt and/or seasonings added. Sunflowers can be processed into a peanut butter alternative, sunflower butter. In Germany, it is mixed with rye flour to make Sonnenblumenkernbrot (literally: sunflower whole seed bread), which is quite popular in German-speaking Europe. It is also sold as food for birds and can be used directly in cooking and salads. American Indians had multiple uses for sunflowers in the past, such as in bread, medical ointments, dyes and body paints. 

Sunflower oil, extracted from the seeds, is used for cooking, as a carrier oil and to produce margarine and biodiesel, as it is cheaper than olive oil. A range of sunflower varieties exist with differing fatty acid compositions; some 'high oleic' types contain a higher level of monounsaturated fats in their oil than even olive oil.

The cake remaining after the seeds have been processed for oil is used as a livestock feed. Some recently developed cultivars have drooping heads. These cultivars are less attractive to gardeners growing the flowers as ornamental plants, but appeal to farmers, because they reduce bird damage and losses from some plant diseases. Sunflowers also produce latex, and are the subject of experiments to improve their suitability as an alternative crop for producing nonallergenic rubber.

Traditionally, several Native American groups planted sunflowers on the north edges of their gardens as a "fourth sister" to the better known three sisters combination of corn, beans, and squash.Annual species are often planted for their allelopathic properties.

However, for commercial farmers growing commodity crops, the sunflower, like any other unwanted plant, is often considered a weed. Especially in the Midwestern US, wild (perennial) species are often found in corn and soybean fields and can have a negative impact on yields.

Sunflowers can be used in phytoremediation to extract toxic ingredients from soil, such as lead, arsenic and uranium, and used in rhizofiltration to neutralize radionuclides and other toxic ingredients and harmful bacteria from water. They were used to remove caesium-137 and strontium-90 from a nearby pond after the Chernobyl disaster, and a similar campaign was mounted in response to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.
