How to Access Your Photo Albums
When you open the Photos feature in Google Plus for iPhone, you will notice a number of options. You can access your own pictures by looking for the albums labeled as "Photos of You," "From Your Phone," "Profile Photos," and so forth. If you have made additional albums on your account, you will see these listed as well.

Click on the album of your choice to view your pictures or images.

Where Can I See My Friends' Photos?
If you wish to see the images your friends are posting, you can select the album titled "From Your Circles," and then scroll through the images. Unfortunately, these images are not organized by Circle or friend, but will return every image you might see among all those you follow.

A better bet may be for you to search through your Circles for specific users.
