India - Home feeling knows no borders - North India
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

For about a month I was staying in Bhagsu.
It is a small village up a narrow winding road from McLaud Ganj, which on it's own is neighboring to Dharamsala.
One of the perks of staying in a tourist destination as this village is the ability to enjoy a continental, or even a Mediterranean breakfast.
Even Avocado that is absent in other parts of India is imported for the benefit of one's who need the feeling of home far from home.
Falafel is another booth that serves the many Israelis that pack the guest-houses of Bhagsu.
So some days, after enjoying this late breakfast, I would head down, by foot, through the beautiful cliff side road to McLaud Ganj.
One day, as I was marching back into Bhagsu, a group of Punjubi tourists was having a parking lot party. Having their car doors open and the stereo pumping Bangra music tracks, they called me to join them and immediately handed me a cup into which one poured Coke and another Whiskey.
As the warmth of the drink and the company surrounded me I joined the dancing, which continued for a few hours.
Bhagsu, Himachal Pradesh, India.
