If you go to photos.google.com on a computer, and just stay on the photos tab (ie don't go into Collections), how many photos can you see? I recently discovered that there are some photos in your account that the Google Photos software doesn't show you - I think that this is something to do with the privacy settings on the tools where you uploaded them (eg ...
Here is a walkthrough on how to see your shared photos and stop sharing them taken from Google Help. This might be different than public photos though. To see your shared photos: Open the Google Photos app or go to photos.google.com on a computer. At the top left, touch or click the menu icon. Select Shared links. To stop sharing them: ...

As you suggest in your comments, they can find you with your alternate mail—the mail you add in case you lose your password / other security reasons. If your contact has a Google profile associated with any email address, including an alternate email address, or profile link you’ve stored in that contact’s entry, you'll see information from their profile ...
The source of these invitations is the contacts list of the person who invited you. The invitation process is described here. I don't think you would get an email if the contact list of that person didn't contain your email address. (Otherwise, how would G+ know which John Smith is invited to join the circle?). The only explanation I can give is that the ...
If you have not yet joined Google+ then you are not in Google+ Search. Google+ does not show a user's email address to anyone unless the user explicitly made the email visible. Basically the user who invited you will almost certainly have to have already had your email address.
