This is version VI, bigger, (actually, a little smaller, I checked and deleted more inactives than I added actives) better, faster, wilder. (ha) It's the only circle I share, and it's a good one.(and if you could, please look at my art and photography, that's why I do this - scroll down, I have lots of new and old good things)Thanks to everyone who shared me, and looked and commented on my photography and art.Special kudos out to those who not only share, but post there own good things.Peace.

Gailen Mapes65,671Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  B - 2 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-07-02 10:34:05141316CC G+

Charles Lupica83,296═════════════════════════════════     Top Photographers you should follow                 An Art of Photography Circle  Photographers whose art we think will amaze you ═════════════════════════════════#ArtOfPhotographyCircle tag to allow people to easily mute this post. It's been a while since I shared a circle here on G+ so I thought I would team up with +Scott Thomas and +Brian Dukes to share with you the first new circle I've created in more than a year.  We think you'll find that the photographers in this circle are some of the very best that G+ has to offer.  Of course you're probably already following people like Jeff Sullivan , Lori Hibbett, Jay Patel and  Vivienne Gucwa but we think that all of the people in this circle will add high quality content to your stream.  All share their amazing work and many of them share tutorials and resources to help you perfect your art. When deciding who would be in this circle, we used these guidelines• Sharing mostly their own work• When sharing the work of others, the work is clearly identified• Little to no, promotional material. • Some people are included that share a lot about technique but may not share a lot of their photography.• If they have gifs in their stream, they're almost always educational. • The images shared by these people frequently fall into the category of, "I wish I'd taken it" • They post to G+ on a regular basis,  For some this may be a little as once a month.  For others, this may be one or more a day.  People who post less than once a month are not included.  We prefer to circle people that are active here on G+. No one has asked to be in this circle, however, we intend to share a version of this each month.  *If you know of a talented photographer you'd like us to add*, please leave a comment and share the circle.  Doing so will get us to look at their profile. However, there is no guarantee that we'll include them in a future circle.   We want to maintain the quality of this circle.  Therefore, we will only add photographers that we would want to see in our own personal stream. Many of the photographers in this circle are well known so we are particularly interested in hearing your choice of photographers with fewer than 15'000 followers.  We would like to give them the opportunity to gain more views for their work.Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the quality of the work by the photographers in it.  ValidationThis circle was very heavily vetted.  We have looked at each photographer's stream and decide that we would like to include them in this circle. +Charles Lupica (me), +Scott Thomas and +2014-06-27 17:39:05116934953CC G+

Gailen Mapes64,764Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  B - 2 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-06-02 10:17:20139427CC G+

Down at the Mill - 2014

When I visited Gainesville, Georgia last weekend, the large grain mill was in operation and the smell of corn was strong in the air. Located a block over from the +Amtrak station there, I was happy to find an "old-timer" still working away.

I need to learn more about the track layout in that area, but I think this is the old Gainesville Midland tracks which are now owned by the CSX railroad.

The locomotive is leased by the grain mill to shuttle the cars around the large yard area.

Gainesville is the center of Georgia's poultry industry and most of the feed will be going to chicken houses in the surrounding area.

On my road-trip for work this week I dropped into downtown Cordele, #GA  to see the progress on the new courthouse and check out the train action.

I was surprised to see that the previously hidden Coca-Cola sign is now in full view as the building which blocked it has been removed as part of the renovations downtown.

I can only hope that they are going to build a park there so that future generations can enjoy it as much as I do.

Down at the depot

The trains don't stop here any more, the passengers are all gone.  No one waits for a love one to step off the train from the city.  No one boards a train bound for war, college, or just a life somewhere else but here.

The depot used to be the center of a community.  The agent knew more about the residents of the town and their lives than probably any other person in town, except maybe the bartender.  

The agent knew where they were going and where they had been. Which companies were doing well and flush with shipments and which ones were barely holding on.  Western Union's telegrams came over the wires with news of births and deaths to be delivered. Deliveries from the mail-order catalogs awaited pick-up, especially around Christmas.

The trains stopped running, the agent retired, and no one ever replaced him.  The depot sitsalone... more »

Yesterday I asked my G+ friends to list 5 photographers who inspire them.  This circle is the result of that request.  

Sometimes it's hard to feel motivated with photography.  I know recently, I have been feeling a little stuck and somewhat uninspired.  Sometimes it just takes looking at another photographer work to re-trigger that spark of creativity.  That and actually picking up the camera.  

I hope this circle brings new faces to your G+ stream and new creativity to your photography.  

(If I missed anyone from those listed, my apologies, it truly was unintentional.)

Hello Humidity

That moment when you get out of the air-conditioned truck on a hot summer morning and the lens fogs over as the train passes by in front of you.

Oh well.. got a nice wave from the crew and watched it pass by.

Many small locomotives spend their lives working behind the scenes serving industry.

Reminder that #TransportTuesday  is officially on vacation until September 1st.  I'm still checking out the #Transport  shots as I'm able but we might not make it to all of the great pics over the break.

Stop

This "One Stop Shop" has stopped serving the local community.  

Once perfectly located at a busy highway junction, it has been bypassed by new road construction and was finished off by a new C-store opening up about a block away.

There are many small stores which are now closed along the back roads.

It used to be that you'd find one every few miles on most rural highways.  They'd serve the local community and have a gas pump or two out front.

These days folks travel into town to visit Wal-Mart or Dollar General and get their gas where it is a penny or two cheaper.

Ready to Serve

Here is the view in the other direction at Tate, Georgia of the small enginehouse of the Georgia Northern.

The whole place belongs in a "Railroad you can Model" article in Model Railroad I believe.

Time stands still

Time stands still in Tate, in the foothills of North #Georgia  which is famous for the quality of the marble which is quarried nearby.  

The depot still stands even though it has seen better days.  A shortline railroad, the Georgia Northern is based here in a small enginehouse and still serves the quarries near by.

The town which is down the hill from here, is famous for the Tate House which was made of marble and is now a popular destination for weddings.

sometimes we all just need some bubble-gum smelling suds to wash away the grime of the past and prepare us for the next drive in our lives.

hope you have a great week.

Another shot from yesterday's trip to Dalton, Georgia.

An empty coal train heads back North towards the mine led by two visiting BNSF units in two different paint schemes.

I thought the backs of the buildings on main street reminded me of a model railroad layout where flats can be used to create a backdrop, it works for full-size trains too.

The +BNSF Railway visits Dalton, GA today.

Took a quick road-trip up to Dalton today and was happy to catch two different coal trains with pure BNSF power on them.  This was the 2nd one with coal loads headed Southbound on the Norfolk Southern line through downtown.

Flying the flag on July 4th

Woke up to a beautiful morning here in Georgia and decided to head out to the tracks to try and catch a train or two and enjoy the temperatures in the 60's to start the day.

The northbound intermodal on the NS had a +Union Pacific locomotive whose paint scheme was perfect for #independenceday2014  along with their slogan "Building #America  "

It's great to watch my stream today as so many folks post Patriotic images celebrating the history and culture of our great country.

For one day, we can forget some of the things which divide us and join together as #Americans  

I hope you will find a shot to share which shows off your pride in our country, and I hope that feeling can continue everyday.. not just today.

Hope everyone has a wonderful #4thofJuly  weekend here in the United States.  It is a day where we can forget our political differences and celebrate the birth of OUR country almost 250 years ago.

I hope you get to spend the holiday with your family or friends and take a moment to remember the sacrifices of the Founding Fathers and also the military who still serve to protect US today.

Still working

This old veteran was still earning its keep in Birmingham, Alabama during my visit there in September 2013 with +Patrice Christian 

I grew up in Santa Fe Country out in California and it has always been my favorite railroad.  I grew up watching the Blue & Yellow Warbonnets climbing Cajon Pass and going around the Tehachapi Loop.  When I moved away from California back in 1990, one of things I missed the most was my favorite railroad.

The Santa Fe became part of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe in the late 1990s, but there are still a few of their locomotives in use wearing their old paint.  I still smile whenever I find one and make sure to take its photo as a reminder of years gone by.

Don't forget that +TransportTuesday  #TransportTuesday  is officially on vacation until 9/1/2014.  +Annie Irving is travelling and we knowmany of... more »

Happy 630 Day!

The Southern 630, owned by the +Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum is a great goodwill ambassador on the rails of the Southeast.

For the last couple of years it has been part of the +Norfolk Southern Corp 's 21st Century Steam Program.

I got to see her in person last September on a trip to Birmingham, AL with +Patrice Christian

Hot sticky summer days in the South.

Nothing tastes better than an ice-cold Coca-Cola from a small town general store where everyone else knows each other by first name.

Part of the fun of exploring the small towns of #Georgia  is finding signs like this one which are reminders of a time gone by when Cokes were still a nickel and farms were still worked by horses and mules.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

We're officially on vacation at #TransportTuesday  until September, but I thought I'd share another shot from last November.

BNSF 5772 waits patiently for a Green Signal in Bay, Arkansas on a cloudy late Fall day.

Delta Sunset Arkansas, 2013.

Quick reminder that #TransportTuesday  +TransportTuesday is on vacation until September, but we hope you'll continue to share your favorite #transport  photos in the meantime in our community.

Happy Monday.

Had a nice time yesterday taking a quick road-trip to the Georgia Mountains with +Patrice Christian which included a visit to a cute little RR Museum (See her stream for a shot of the museum).  I'll be sharing some shots from there as I get a chance to process them.

This image comes from my trip to visit my Mom last fall in Arkansas. The BNSF runs near her home and I was able to catch a few of their trains during my visit.

Hope you have a great week

Looking for something new to do around #ATL  ? How about the updated museum at the +Delta HQ ?

Looks like a great place to visit.

Working the yard in 16:9

Listening to a Lenswork podcast by Brooks Jensen recently, he mentioned the idea of aspect of photos and how the "standard" image has shifted over the years as we get more and more used to the wider HDTV and computer monitors that we look at daily.

Most computer monitors and HDTV are at an aspect of 16:9 or 16:10 versus the more traditional 4:3 or 4:5.

I've noticed for a long time, that when I'm processing my train photographs, I tend to think in wider images.  I've used a lot of 15:5 (aka 3:1 or pano-style) in order to present these type of shots.

However, I've noticed that they do not present well usually in social media streams as they either get displayed very small or are cropped to show the center of the image.

The same thing has recently been happening with my 1:1 #PhotoSquared  shotsa... more »

Looking for love in all the wrong places.

A shot from 2012 along the levee in Augusta, Georgia.

The little guy seemed quite fond of my truck's antenna.

After buying my first DSLR, I went to the Savannah River in downtown Augusta to try it out.

One of the images I made that day is still one of my all-time favorites and was the first shot of my own which I ever had printed professionally.

It also ended up being the first print that I ever sold with it going to a person who is still a very special friend of mine...

Looking back at it, I think the only thing that would have made it a better day would of been a train crossing the bridge.  Or even a steam train =)

Have a GREAT SUMMER

As +TransportTuesday   #TransportTuesday  gets ready to go on our Summer/Winter vacation for two months, I'm sharing an older shot that I've never shared on #TT

While +Annie Irving travels the world and I work away, the theme will be "hibernating". You are more than welcome to continue to share shots with us, but we might be slow in responding depending on our schedules. 

We will be returning in September and will send out a reminder in late August to remind everyone we're back.

Until then.. I hope you continue to make lots of new #Transport  shots so you will have new material to share with us then!

This train came through Folkston, GA back in Nov 2010 and another shot from the series is one of my #Top10  railroad photos on the website (you can see that version here... http://bit.ly/1q7Of7a )... more »
