Some time ago I wrote a post on Sharing the Old Fashion Way. This involved viewing you google photos in the old Picasa Web Album format. You just needed to use the special link address
Viewing your photos like this still works. Alas the sharing option that where there previously have been greyed out and/or removed. I’m not sure what is so difficult in generating that permalink. There is a possibility of sharing the album (not the individual photos) back into google+.
