Chrysanthemums (菊)
This shot was taken with a lens I purchased on a new years eve shopping spree at a second hand store. It is an SMC PENTAX 1:1.8/55. What I find remarkable is that the lens is 35 years old and works perfectly with my modern DSLR. I wish all mechanical devices were built this well.

Natsukashii
I walked through the area around my first apartment in Tokyo this evening that I had not visited in over 5 years. The Japanese word "Natsukashii", which doesn't really have a direct English translation, came to mind.

How do the PERSONAL TOPs of G+ Photos Work?

1) Any photography enthusiast can create a PERSONAL TOP consisting of his/her own Google Plus photographs. This means any existing PERSONAL top has been created by the author of the photographs that are in the TOP; there are no PERSONAL TOPs that were created automatically.

2) Only G+ photographs published by you in one of your Google+ posts should appear in your PERSONAL TOP. This means any posts you have reshared or your own posts without a G+ photo should not appear. No GIFs should be in the TOPs.

3) Contrary to the DAILY TOPs are the PERSONAL TOPs sorted solely on popularity - we use Plus PopRank to sort these. The Plus PopRank formula is: Plus PopRank(of a post) = +1s + (2 x comments) + (4 x reshares)

Example: Let's say that a particular post has 25 +1s, 10 comments and 3 reshares. This means its Plus PopRank is 57 (= 25 + 2x10 + 4*3).
