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.

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 10:34:05141327CC G+

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 20:48:1750025950CC G+

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 03:26:0247725863164CC G+

Es sind wieder viele neue und interessante Leute und Seiten hinzugefügt worden. 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 dem Kreislimit nahe bin, werde ich wohl demnächst anfangen, weniger aktive Railfans auszusortieren.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! 2014-01-06 21:59:5947133641CC G+

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 11:20:3528531827CC G+

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 21:45:11212624CC G+

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 13:17:2050114186132CC G+

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 22:18:2334135373160CC G+

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 20:48:47160125CC G+

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 16:22:1250138521CC G+

A Face Only A Mother Could Love?

A lot of railfans do not like the square face of the EMD SD70M-2. I wouldn't say it is pretty, but it does convey a blunt-nosed feeling of no-nonsense power to me.

The horn, now, that's something else. It's not an attractive sound to my ear. I'm not a horn aficionado like some are, but when I hear the flat braaaat of the SD70M-2 I wince a bit. :)

The Norfolk Southern Railroad painted a number of their locomotives in "fallen flag" colours aka schemes of railroads that became part of NS and no longer exist as their own railroads. This was my first viewing of one of those Heritage engines, yesterday in North Dakota.

The "Prairie death star" grain elevator at Agassiz outside Winkler, Manitoba. These concrete monsters are "high throughput elevators" meaning they can take grain in, and load grain cars, very fast compared to traditional elevators. They are the bane of local wooden elevators. It's a shame, but that's progress...

I found this former country church on the way to the grain elevator in Purves, Manitoba. The church has not seen any services for a long time (1964 if my Google searches are right). The outhouse I posted earlier is just off to the right, and there are recycling bins in the gravel parking lot, but otherwise the church stands alone.. forgotten. #Tuesdecay  +Ian Ference

Faded Warbonnet

Railfans like to see locomotives in different colours, or rare colours. I spotted this "warbonnet" (the faded Santa Fe engine) and had to stop and photograph it. BNSF has several different paint schemes active at the moment and the orange one is the "New Image" / "Heritage III" scheme introduced in 2005. Oddly enough the Warbonnet engine was only built in 1993 so it isn't very old.

Seen on a rather faded looking car in Prince George, BC. Note the colored bar on the far right of the image. This was an early version of an automated car reader, KarTrak. An optical scanner beside the tracks would read these labels as the cars went by and send the data to a computer so the car's location could be tracked. The problem was the optics. These labels became dirty and wouldn't read well, and the system was a failure. Nowadays cars have a passive tag on them and an RF reader beside the track reads them, much like today's chip-enabled credit cards.

Railfanning Prince George, Part 1
I had to fly to Prince George, British Columbia last week for work. I knew I would be working long hours, but I knew it was just about the longest days of the year, so there would be plenty of light for railfanning! I flew out of Winnipeg on Sunday afternoo...

View From The Lounge

I was sitting in the Air Canada lounge in Vancouver's airport (YVR), enjoying the view of the mountains and the Lufthansa 747 heading out. Not a bad way to travel.

A Face Only A Mother Could Love?

A lot of railfans do not like the square face of the EMD SD70M-2. I wouldn't say it is pretty, but it does convey a blunt-nosed feeling of no-nonsense power to me.

The horn, now, that's something else. It's not an attractive sound to my ear. I'm not a horn aficionado like some are, but when I hear the flat braaaat of the SD70M-2 I wince a bit. :)

This is probably one of the ugliest engines on CN's roster. CN 2019 is ex Union Pacific 9042, which retired from UP in January 2008 and was purchased by CN in April 2013. One day it will be repainted but it has been making the rounds in this hasty patch job.

#TransportTuesday  is on vacation but I had to share anyway :)

Taxi!

The crew of the Skeena have put their train from Vancouver away for the night, and are boarding the taxi for their overnight rest. The Skeena (now known by the boring "Jasper-Prince Rupert train") runs through some pretty scenic country in British Columbia, but for some reason overnights in Prince George.

Built in 1914 by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway to span the Fraser River, this bridge is still in use by CN. It's unusual in that the far end has a direct lift system to lift one span for river passage.
