The Iordan/Leonard/Mutch/Wolfson-Foster School of Fine Arts: Admission!!! (Bo Diddley #3)
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.

[Sheldon, Vermont, March 2000]
I am happy to report that my application to the ILMW-F School of Fine Arts has been accepted! I received this message from Dean Wolfson-Foster:
â€œYour letter of acceptance is on its way, Sir Knight. Also, you will be receiving an ILMW-F School of Fine Arts t-shirt and backpack . . . and a bill for $25,000 to cover your first semester (books included). It is an honor to welcome such a talented photographer to our small, yet prestigious family.â€
$25,000? For one semester? Well, at least the books are included. And the t-shirt and backpack are nice.
I am including this photo with my application for financial aid, because I know the Schoolâ€™s founders like dilapidated buildings. (I wonder what the dorm looks like . . .) Wish me luck!
I took this pic ten years ago as I traced the escape route of the Confederate raiders that had robbed the three banks in St. Albans, Vermont, and were now making their way to Canada, with a federal posse in hot pursuit (1864). Sheldon is located about 11 miles east of St. Albans. The area is rugged, and there is little evidence of any prosperity. It was a cold wintry day, and I felt a little like Heathcliff wandering around on the moors . . .
Bo Diddleyâ€™s â€œbeat,â€ which was introduced in his self-titled â€œBo Diddleyâ€ (1955), was frequently copied, and today the beat is considered one of the most important building blocks of the rock â€˜nâ€™ roll sound.
Linked below is Dee Clarkâ€™s â€œHey Little Girlâ€ (1960), a virtual note-by-note adaptation of the â€œbeat.â€ Youâ€™ll enjoy this. Itâ€™s a classic.
For all you â€œStonesâ€ fans: You wonâ€™t have long to wait . . .
