Ancient Ways #vibrantwednesday #vividwednesday Curated by +Ajay Hatti, #waywednesday Curated by +Peter Carroll and #wowwednesday Curated by +Jan Paul Anthony Zabala :- This is a road known as "The St". It connects the ancient village of Wilmington with the ancient village of Alfriston in Sussex, England. Both villages are mentioned in the Domesday book of 1086. Now... have look on the hillside. Do you see him? He is known as ' The Long Man of Wilmington ', he is 226ft high and is cut in chalk and outlined with white bricks. They believe that he existed before Saxon times but there is no proof of his age. All we do know is that he too is very ancient.

The Birdcage #designthursday Curated by +Venkatram Harish Belvadi and #historythursday Curated by +Matt Shalvatis :- Those of you that are familiar with my images will recognize certain objects and subjects turning up over and over again. Well the wonderfully ornate Victorian Bandstand (affectionately known as "The Birdcage") in Brighton & Hove (Sussex, England) is one of the subjects I keep returning to. It was designed by Phillip Lockwood (a local Brighton Borough Surveyor) and was finished in 1884. The Bandstand is thought to be one of the greatest examples of a Victorian bandstand surviving in England. In the 1970's the footpath/bridge linking the bandstand to the upper promenade was removed making it impossible for anyone to gain access. The Bandstand has recently been restored and the bridge put back in place so that tourists, holiday makers, locals and day trippers can all stand under it's ornate canopy and look in awe at the fine Victorian design and workmanship. The Bandstand is also available for private hire and community events.

Poo Corner #streetartsunday Curator(s): +Luís Pedro +Peter Tsai & +Mark Seymour and #shadowsonsunday Curated by +André Roßbach & +Daniel Graupner :- This was one of those shoots where I kept having to check on my surroundings and look over my shoulder once in while. I was on my own in a deserted underground car park. The walls were covered in graffiti, cigarette butts littered the floor and were kept in good company by many empty beer cans and a couple of old dirty sleeping bags were in one corner. I did not feel to be in the safest of places. Having said that there was much to point and click at, the light outside was failing and the "blue hour" was taking over which helped to create an odd light within the car park itself. I spotted these disused steps covered in artwork and liked the way the bottom half were lit from the underground lighting and that the top half was lit by twilight that was breaking through. I took the shot and got out of there as quickly as possible.

Church of St Andrew #sacredsunday Curated by +Charles Lupica +Manfred Berndtgen +Robyn Morrison +Margaret Tompkins & +Sherrie von Sternberg ,#skysunday Curated by +Randy Scherkenbach & +Patrick Scherkenbach :- This is the Church of St Andrew in the ancient and small village of Beddingham in Sussex, England. I stumbled upon this old church quite by accident as I was driving back from from a photographic outing. I saw it from the road, realized how old it looked and doubled back to have a closer look and a good nose around. The church is near Glynde Reach, a navigable arm of the Ouse in the Middle Ages.  It was a minster church with a college of priests in the 9th Century. Pretty much it's been added to ever since then with bits from the 12th , 13th and 14th centuries being added along the way.

Evening Train #leadinglinesmonday +Leading Lines Monday  Curated by +Pam Chalkley @Jakob Nilsson  @CJ Sros and  #metallicmonday 
Curated by +Thomas Raschbacher :- An overhead shot of a train at Hove station whilst the sun is slowly setting and casing a rich light over everything. At the same time there was a heavy storm coming in that created a dramatic setting and backdrop for the whole image.

Apologies to Jakob Nilsson  and CJ Sros but once again for some unknown reason I appear to be unable to tag your names properly on G+.

Brownie #fidofriday Curated by +Wes Lum +mel peifer +Lisa Lisa & #feelgoodfriday Curated by +Rebecca Borg :- Something a little different from me today. This is a photograph of "Brownie" taking a nap on one of our traditional Thai Triangle Pillows. "Brownie" was a gift from one of our neighbors in the village, my wife and step daughter were delighted ... and I was overjoyed as I adore dogs. I've not seen "Brownie" for a long time as I am currently in the UK but my wife assures me (over the phone) that I'll be met by a very happy but much larger "Brownie" when I return. As for the dogs name, not my doing or my wife's ... that was all down to my wonderful step daughter.

There was nothing for me to do with this one...it was all down to mother nature who did a stunning job. Point & click.

Monk & Elephant #sacredartsunday #sacredsunday Curated by +Charles Lupica  +Manfred Berndtgen +Robyn Morrison  +Margaret Tompkins & +Sherrie von Sternberg and #zensunday Curated by +Charlotte Therese Björnström  +Simon Kitcher & +Nathan Wirth :- I have a very good memory. I seem to be able to capture moments from my life and store them away in order to recall them at a later date. I clearly remember taking this shot. I spotted the monk wandering around the white chedi / stupa with his hands clasped together and as he went around the back I got in position and waited for him to come around again so that the stone elephant was in the shot too. Now...I'd love to be able to tell you which temple this was shot at in Chiang Mai but I have to say my memory isn't as good as I thought it was because it shames me to say I haven't got a clue!

Cheers #GingerThursday  #blastfromthepast +Blast From The Past Curated by +Cheryl Cooper  +Mark Rodriguez & +Isabelle Fortin :- Camping in style. A makeshift table made from Kronenbourg beer cans, a packet of cigarettes and a bottle of wine. This shot was taken by our bass player (Mr Rick Willis) as we chilled out in our tent at the Le Mans 24 Hour Motorbike race in France, 25th & 26th April 1992. I was 25 years old.

One Way or Another #saturdaynightlight Curated by +Dirk Heindoerfer and #streetsaturday Curated by +Siddharth Pandit :- These are the famous Victorian Iron Arches that run along the length of  Madeire Drive on Brighton seafront (Sussex, England). It was only recently that I discovered they have now illuminated them at night with a wonderful neon electric blue light. Obviously as soon as I found that I out I grabbed my camera and drove down there for the evening.

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).
