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 +2014-09-02 10:32:301406416

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 20:48:1750025750

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. Ich teile den Kreis einmal im Monat (meist zum Monatsende). Add, share and enjoy!  #railcircle   #eisenbahnfankreis  2014-03-01 11:13:30500231447

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.

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 00:08:59501281020
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 22:18:2334135373160

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

Sometimes it hurts to look at old train photos, because there's nothing left from them. Here two NBEC RS-18 (Alco/MLW engines) get ready to pull an ore train to Brunswick Mines outside Bathurst, New Brunswick, Canada for loading. The railway is gone, the engines are gone, the mine is closed... only the rails remain, fortunately still in use by VIA Rail and the occasional CN freight.

CN was running a special train in Winnipeg for CN family members. So no rides for railfans but we got to see this classic power.

This former Manitoba Pool elevator has been superseded by a giant Cargill elevator a few kilometres west of here. I believe this elevator is privately owned now. It was nice of them to leave a grain truck at the spout for wandering photographers. ;)

The former Manitoba Pool grain elevator in Souris, Manitoba. You might notice this elevator's replacement in the distance just to the left of the elevator. The Pool elevator no longer has any track and I'm not sure if it is still in use for storage or not.

I found this former store in the small town of Mariapolis, Manitoba when searching for grain elevators. Apparently it was in operation since 1914 but unfortunately closed up quite recently. It was surprising to see a store of such unusual design in a small town.

It's frustrating for me to go back and look at my photos from a decade or more ago. So many of them were so bad. This one is one of the better ones. The sky's blown out, the composition is poor... nice light on the train, at least. I made an attempt to salvage it on the right.

I try not to beat myself up too much but I sure had a lot to learn. I wonder in another decade if I'm going to look at the photos I'm taking right now and think the same thing.

The VIA Rail Canadian meets an eastbound CN freight train. The double track CN Rivers subdivision allows these meets at speed without one train having to stop. Long ago many lines were double (or triple!) tracked to allow more traffic, but as technology was added the extra tracks were removed. Now that traffic is increasing on many main lines, the extra tracks are going back in. It all comes around.

Lightroom is really a marvelous program, isn't it? I took this old photo from February 2008 (shot with a 3 megapixel Fuji camera) and did some editing to produce the "enhanced" image. A little editing does a lot.

I couldn't sleep last night so I was playing with flash.. fairly pleased with the results but I have to stand farther away from the backdrop to get rid of my shadow... and find a way to diffuse it more.

CN was running a special train in Winnipeg for CN family members. So no rides for railfans but we got to see this classic power.

A BNSF train waits near the Argusville, ND grain elevator. I was waiting for the sunlight to reach the train, but alas, it never did.

This former mill track was being used for storage of autorack cars in 2009. After the "economic downturn" of 2008, nobody was buying cars so the car manufacturers didn't need the autoracks. They were parked by the hundreds all over the continent, wherever there was spare track. This mill track was eventually pulled up after the mill was sold for scrap.

Back when I was about 10 years old, and still a plane geek, I made this book. It had a lot of airplane clippings as well as some drawings. I finally tossed the book in 2009 but I took a few photos first.

Just selling some winter tires and showing the tread depth. The old rule of thumb is that if you see the top of Lincoln's head, you have to replace the tire.

I found this ancient boxcar behind the Hathaway grain elevator beside the former rail line. It looks like it was turned into some kind of cottage or bunk car but the load lines and writing inside give it away.

The tiny community of Barnsley, Manitoba has two grain elevators, a United Grain Growers elevator and a Manitoba Pool elevator. They lost their rail service in 1992 and I believe they are privately owned. As you can see the Pool elevator appears to be in use. I can't say the same for the UGG one, as it is in poor shape.

This is what I saw at the start of my mega grain elevator trip to southwest Manitoba. It didn't bode well but I trusted to the weather forecast. The storm was intense but brief and I had great weather for the remainder of the two days. Even though I had photographed this elevator twice already, I had to stop for a few minutes to capture the sky.

One of the two grain elevators in Minto, MB was damaged by a storm earlier this summer. I documented it as best I could, given the yellow tape around the elevator preventing people from getting closer. Hopefully the elevator will be repaired rather than demolished.

I could say a lot about this, and I probably will at some point. As far as I know there is no law against this so I'm not sure why police are looking out for these guys. Skeezy, yes, but not illegal. I'm more interested to know why, if this person was concerned, she didn't confront them directly and ask what they were doing. I know that's what I'd do... but then again, I'm not a woman with grandchildren so I don't know the situation.

The unloading area of the Forrest, MB grain elevator. Trucks would dump their grain through the grating on the floor, where it would be picked up by the conveyor belt and elevated up to the top and fall down into one of the bins in the elevator.

One of the wolves at the Assiniboine Zoo in Winnipeg. These crafty fellows were made famous when they dug into the polar bear section of the zoo for a little visit. Fortunately none of the animals were hurt and they are separated again. The wolves are part of the zoo's new Journey to Churchill exhibit.

This is for +Bill Zinck to show a grain elevator in Ontario, namely Essex. As you can see, it is not terribly attractive compared to the western wooden elevators. Essex is without rails now that the CASO was lifted, and the elevator was dormant when I saw it in 2012.

Sometimes it hurts to look at old train photos, because there's nothing left from them. Here two NBEC RS-18 (Alco/MLW engines) get ready to pull an ore train to Brunswick Mines outside Bathurst, New Brunswick, Canada for loading. The railway is gone, the engines are gone, the mine is closed... only the rails remain, fortunately still in use by VIA Rail and the occasional CN freight.

WHEAT

Wheat, and the cough "elevator" that stores it for shipment. This modern facility can store 17,700 tonnes of grain. That's about 650,000 bushels or at least 10 times a traditional grain elevator's capacity, and I'm sure it can load train cars much faster too.

The most northerly of the grain elevators I've photographed so far, in Arborg, Manitoba. The area is interesting in that it was settled by Icelandic people. Manitoba has the largest concentration of people of Icelandic descent outside of Iceland itself.
