Gailen Mapes68,403Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera B - 2 of 31Note: 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 September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 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 +2014-10-02 10:23:56136000

Jörg Müller5,850Railfan Circle #04/14This is my updated handpicked #railcircle  of active friends of railroad from around the world with contributions within the last two month. Again a lot of new and interesting people and pages have been added, others deleted due to missing rail related contributions.The photographers and pages in this circle have more than just one or two, usually several posts with rail content in recent weeks in their public stream. Because I'm at the circle limit, I weed out less active rail fans to add more active. Check the circle, there are a lot of new pages & profiles.If you want to have more follower with rail content, add this circle to your circles. A lot of them will add you back. You will get more interesting posts in your stream. If you think you have been missed in my hand picked collection, tag a comment in the original post and I will check out your profile. I share the circle monthly. Add, share and enjoy! / Eisenbahnfankreis #04-14Dies ist mein aktualisierter handverlesener Kreis der aktiven G+ User von Beiträgen zum System Schiene aus der ganzen Welt innerhalb der letzten beiden Monate hier auf G+. Es sind wieder viele neue und interessante Leute und Seiten hinzugefügt worden, weniger aktive sind rausgefallen. Die Profile und Seiten in diesem Kreis haben zumeist mehr als nur ein oder zwei, in der Regel mehrere Beiträge mit Bahninhalten in den letzten Wochen in ihrem öffentlichen Stream.  Weil ich inzwischen am Kreislimit bin, habe ich weniger aktive Railfans aussortiert, um Platz für neue aktive zu bekommen. Es sind zahlreiche neue Seiten und Profile aufgenommen worden. Wenn Du mehr Follower mit Bahn-Inhalt haben möchtest, füge diesen Kreis zu Deinem Profil hinzu - ein Großteil davon wird Dich zurückkreisen. Wenn Du glaubst, ich sollte Dein Profil in den Kreis mit aufnehmen, hinterlasse ein Kommentar, dass ich mir Dein Profil anschauen kann. Ich teile den Kreis einmal im Monat (meist zum Monatsende). Add, share and enjoy! #railcircle   #eisenbahnfankreis2014-04-01 20:48:1750025749

Jörg Müller5,442Railfan Circle #03/14This is my updated handpicked #railcircle  of active friends of railroad from around the world with contributions within the last two month. A lot of new and interesting people and pages have been added, others deleted due to missing rail related contributions.The photographers and pages in this circle have more than just one or two, usually several posts with rail content in recent weeks in their public stream. Because I'm at the circle limit, I will weed out less active rail fans to add more active.If you want to have more follower with rail content, add this circle to your circles. A lot of them will add you back. You will get more interesting posts in your stream. If you think you have been missed in my hand picked collection, tag a comment in the original post and I will check out your profile. I share the circle monthly. Add, share and enjoy! / Eisenbahnfankreis #03-14Dies ist mein aktualisierter handverlesener Kreis der aktiven G+ User von Beiträgen zum System Schiene aus der ganzen Welt innerhalb der letzten beiden Monate hier auf G+. Es sind wieder viele neue und interessante Leute und Seiten hinzugefügt worden, weniger aktive sind rausgefallen. Die Profile und Seiten in diesem Kreis haben zumeist mehr als nur ein oder zwei, in der Regel mehrere Beiträge mit Bahninhalten in den letzten Wochen in ihrem öffentlichen Stream.  Weil ich inzwischen am Kreislimit bin, werde ich weiter weniger aktive Railfans auszusortieren um Platz für neue aktive zu bekommen.Wenn Du mehr Follower mit Bahn-Inhalt haben möchtest, füge diesen Kreis zu Deinem Profil hinzu - ein Großteil davon wird Dich zurückkreisen. Wenn Du glaubst, ich sollte Dein Profil in den Kreis mit aufnehmen, hinterlasse ein Kommentar, dass ich mir Dein Profil anschauen kann.

Margaret Tompkins101,687>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 25,000 FollowersThe photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 25,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Some are fairly new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people but please only one.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!A while back, I had a wonderful discussion about circles with +Robin Griggs Wood and +Charles Lupica .  If you don't know them, then let me introduce you to two of the finest people here on G+!    Charles is a master of monochrome!!  Robin is a master of everything and a mentor to all of us!!  Did you know that she speaks seagull!!   I hope that both Robin and Charles will look you all over and give you a share!  There aren't many quality vetted circles shared on G+.  I'm proud to say that this is one of them!!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2014-02-16 03:26:0247725863164

Magnus Ericson35,090Now it's been awhile since I posted my very first public circle so here's an update. I have named the circle "Artistic People" Most are photographers who continually share their own pictures of good quality.The only thing you need to do to get into, and stay in the circle is to continue to have me in your circles and share your own great photos without a lot of other bling bling, youtube clip, animated gifs and so on in your stream.I've probably forgotten one or more that should have been in the circle, but I'm neither the first nor the last to do so.Hope you like my "Artistic People Circle" and that you pass it along to your own circles. Please leave a comment of what you think.2013-08-12 11:20:3528531827

Jörg Müller1,755Updated hand picked Railroad Photographers and Page CircleThis is my updated circle of active friends of railroad (and also model train, tramcar, etc.) for last two month. This circle includes persons with some beautiful railroad photographs and active railway information pages I follow from around the world. A lot of new and interesting people and pages have been added, not yet active were removed.The photographers and pages in this circle have more photos, not only but not just one or two rail picture, usually several posts with railway terms in recent weeks in their personal stream.I believe that add of the circle helps to get more interesting posts in your stream.If you think you have been missed in my hand picked collection, tag a comment on these post and I will check your profile out. I will share the circle sometimes new.Add, use, share and enjoy!2013-05-31 21:45:11212624

Charles Lupica66,743          Top 1000 most followed active        photographers sharing content on G+                  Circle One: J to ZThis  is the second of two circles,  The first was shaerd on 16 May here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/103236949470535942612/posts/FPsHj9E2QEo.  The circles have been divided alphabetically to help give more exposure to people with fewer followers and shared at different times to help keep down the stream saturation. Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated. It has been two weeks since I announced my intent to update my circle of the 500 most followed photographers on G+.  I decided to do things a bit differently this time and so I'll share the top 1000.   To build the circles and the list I enlisted the aid of  +Bill Wood +Gemma Costa +Jen Baptist +Katy Houlne and +Margaret Tompkins   They built circles and vetted profiles.  My starting point for this was a list of 2000 names generously provided to me by +CircleCount. 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

Shawna Mac22,734Canadian Circle Share - Evening EditionHappy Friday!  Last week there were a few Canadian circle shares and I was circled by a bunch of new Canucks, so I'm sharing mine this week as it is brimming with fresh, active Canadians and will help those new to G+ get some great content in their streams.  Slight emphasis on Nova Scotians mebbe.If you are a Canadian or a new circler and want me to add you, please comment below and I shall be happy to do so (but please have your about me filled out with something other than Viagra ads!)I <3 my Canadians (and I'm notifying you so you know where all the new people are coming from)#Canada #Canadiana #NovaScotia #circleshare #circlesharefriday2013-05-11 00:08:5950128920
Magnus Ericson25,068This is absolutely the first time I create and share a public circle. I have named the circle "Artistic People" Most are photographers who continually share their own pictures of good quality.The only thing you need to do to get into, and stay in the circle is to continue to have me in your circles and share your own great photos without a lot of other bling bling in your stream.I've probably forgotten one or more that should have been in the circle, but I'm neither the first nor the last to do so.Hope you like my first public circle and that you pass it along to your own circles. Please leave a comment of what you think.2013-05-09 17:03:0122533827

Margaret Tompkins48,891>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 10,000 FollowersThe photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 10,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Many are fairly new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2013-04-14 22:18:2334135071158

Jörg Müller1,629Updated hand picked Railroad Photographers and Railway Information Page CircleWe got a lot more follower in this community last time. This is my updated circle of the active friends of railroad (and also model train, tramcar, etc.) in the first three month in 2013 on G+ for March.In this circle are persons with some beautiful railway photographs and active railway information pages I found from around the world. Some persons and pages are removed in comparison to the last shared circle, many new and interesting people and pages have been added.The photographers and pages in this circle have "more photos, less spam", not only but not just one rail picture, usually several posts with railway terms in recent weeks. I believe that add of the circle helps to get more interesting posts in your stream. If you think you have been missed in my hand picked collection, tag a comment on these post and I will check your profile out. I will share the circle sometimes new.Add, use, share and enjoy!2013-03-31 20:48:47160125
Eric Hege3,232Photography StreamI haven't shared some of my circles in a while, so over the next few days I plan on doing this. Today's circle is my main photography stream. While I have several photography circle (you'll see a few others later), this is one group I check on a very regular basis.Most of them are very active, and all of them produce some really outstanding work!2013-03-25 00:14:45293908
Corey Gibson2,777It's been a while since I shared my photography circle, so if you are wanting your stream bursting with talented folks posting beautiful images, add this!  Anybody who didn't make it in here is because you didn't fit; only 500 can be shared at a time, sorry.   I need to organize my circles better so I can get everyone out there.Pass it on!  2013-03-15 16:22:1250138521

The locomotive at left (CP 5005) is an SD30C-ECO, a rebuild of CP 6039 (SD40-2) seen at right. These rebuilds replace the diesel engine with a new, more fuel efficient engine. They also received a new cab, electronics and alternator. I hadn't seen any of these refurbished locomotives until this week; so far I've seen three, all on coal trains.

Unlikely Pairs

One of the benefits of standardization is that pretty much any railway locomotive can be linked with any other to add power to a train. They are connected via MU (Multiple Unit) cables and the lead locomotive's throttle and brake settings are copied by all the other locos.

Here's day 2 of the #5dayblackandwhitechallenge . I was tagged by +J. Rae Chip and +Don Denesiuk. This is a CN rail bridge in Kamloops, BC.

Today I am tagging my "old" friend +Hai Vu. I put "old" in quotes because he's clearly still a young man, despite the fact that we met back in 1989 or so. I guess we were both incredibly young to be working. ;) No pressure, Hai!

I finally saw one of the few remaining "Buffalo Slope" grain elevators this past weekend. These elevators were an attempt to improve on wooden grain elevators by building sloped bins and allowing up to five train cars to be loaded at once. They were a failure for a few reasons, mostly because they were obsolete as soon as they were built in the late 1970s. The industry was moving to much larger grain terminals and these elevators were too small and too slow to load grain cars. This is in Magrath, AB.

I was tagged for the #5dayblackandwhitechallenge by +Don Denesiuk and +J. Rae Chip  - I didn't forget! I don't normally process my photos to B&W so this should be interesting. First up is a "grain elevator" I photographed this past Saturday. I decided to start with this because it felt like it would turn out OK as a B&W photo since there wasn't much colour in it to begin with.

I guess I'm supposed to tag others so I will tag my good friend +Jules Falk Hunter as I think she would rock this. No pressure and no obligation!

CN 5556 was on its way to a grain elevator when I caught it in front of the station at the Prairie Dog Central tourist railway. CN owns a portion of the track that the PDC operates on and uses it to service the Paterson grain elevator a few miles from this photo.

I was out with a friend this morning shooting grain elevators in southern Alberta. I was tromping through some marsh and accidentally flushed a deer out into the open. I'm not sure who was more startled - me or it!

The locomotive at left (CP 5005) is an SD30C-ECO, a rebuild of CP 6039 (SD40-2) seen at right. These rebuilds replace the diesel engine with a new, more fuel efficient engine. They also received a new cab, electronics and alternator. I hadn't seen any of these refurbished locomotives until this week; so far I've seen three, all on coal trains.

This is what happens when you shoot from the passenger seat of a moving car, across a highway. Nice light, decent background, sharp photo, , stupid pole line in the way. #photosthatsuck   #cantphotoshopthatout

I caught a little work train zooming along the CP Shuswap subdivision near Kamloops, British Columbia this evening. The sun was dropping fast. I enjoyed seeing the caboose on the end!

Former CP Rail 1809 was one of the many RS18 engines purchased by the New Brunswick East Coast Railway shortline. It was never operated and was used as a parts source for the other engines.

CP 8828 East passes the Rocky Mountaineer rail cruise train in Banff, August 2010. Note the lead CP engine has a white band left over from when it was painted for the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. CP was a sponsor, and as soon as the Olympics were over, the logo was painted over. Licensing, I guess.

People who haven't lived in the Prairies assume it will be flat and boring. Well, much of it is flat, but it's not boring. Far from it. Big skies and big sunrises and sunsets... not hard to take at all.

An old favourite photo of mine, from May 2008. Two ex Canadian Pacific RS-18 engines pull an empty ore train to Brunswick Mine outside Bathurst, New Brunswick. This ore train shuttled between the mine and a nearby smelter until the mine closed a few years ago. Fortunately this engine still survives and is in operation nearby.

For those photographers who publish on multiple sites (G+, Facebook, Flickr, 500px, Instagram, Ello, etc), do you spam all the sites with the same photo, or do you post the same photo to only one or two?

I ask because I've been trying to remember to post to more than just G+ and FB and the temptation is strong to spam them all with the same photo, but I know people follow me on multiple sites and it's probably annoying.

How do you handle that?

(since you shouldn't post without a photo, here's some spare 54 year old rail at sunset, waiting for its chance to go back into sevice)

employees is present, at least two employees must perform the inspection.
EXCEPTION: Crew members of passenger trains are exempted from the above requirements except when standing at meeting points in single track territory. However, every effort must be made to stop a train or transfer when a dangerous condition is noted.
(b) Employees inspecting the condition of equipment in a passing freight train or transfer must, when possible, broadcast the results of the inspection.
(c) Every effort must be made to stop a passing train or transfer if a dangerous condition is detected. Each crew member of a train or transfer must be alert at all times for a stop signal or communication given by an employee. The report 
to the train or transfer being inspected must state only the location of the dangerous condition and what was observed and not speculate as to the cause.
(d) When a crew member is located at the rear of a train or transfer, a front crew member must, when practicable, notify the rear crew member of the location of employees in position to inspect their train or transfer.___

Unlikely Pairs

One of the benefits of standardization is that pretty much any railway locomotive can be linked with any other to add power to a train. They are connected via MU (Multiple Unit) cables and the lead locomotive's throttle and brake settings are copied by all the other locos.

October Meet

I was chasing the train on the right, trying to catch up to it and also respect the 60 km/hr speed limit in the construction zone, when I spotted a headlight in the distance. I tried to gauge where the meet would happen and I think I got it right. It's exciting to watch (and hear) two trains pass each other at track speed!
