Sidd the Travelin Buddha in the Continuous Orb of Enlightenment 2
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.

At a park dedicated to Abraham Lincoln located In Council Bluffs Iowa there was a large cement jungle of pathways and large circular orbs on the north side of the campus of the adjacent educational institution. An unexpected photo shoot for the much traveled Sidd the Travelin Buddha. This is the 2nd of some 7 or so images that made the cut.I like the circular features with the contrasting vertical lines in the cement orbs as well as on the side of a building in the background behind Sidd.
A passage from the Dhammapada tell us that, Whosoever offends an innocent person, pure and guiltless, his evil comes back on that fool himself like fine dust thrown against the wind. This is indeed a classic example of Karma.
Ones actions as well as thoughts will come around..and if they have any ill will involved or self centeredness, there is a good chance that unhappiness and un-setteledness will ensue, furthering the unbalance already in existence, digging a deeper hole to climb out of, but it is possible to overcome these maladys and their Karmic effects. One just has to endeavor to follow the right path, treat others as you yourself would like to be treated, and try to learn from your experiences.
