â€œROUTE 66â€ â€“ TO THE PROMISED LAND [FOR BRENDA BURK]
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.

[One block off of the main drag in Oatman, Arizona, August, 2010]
Last August, I drove a long length of U.S. Route 66 (the â€œMother Roadâ€) from Ash Fork, Arizona to Needles, California. (Please see previous posts.)
The rich ranchland to the east gives way to the rugged terrain in the west . . . and grinding poverty.
Oatman, Arizona is a lot like hundreds of other towns in the Old West. Once a mining camp, today it caters exclusively to tourists. Main Street is lined with shops and diners. Burros are wandering about, even on the boardwalk, a nice feature.
As I was leaving Oatman, I turned from Main Street to have a look at the â€œresidentialâ€ area. (Please see previous collages.)
From here, it was just another 25 miles to the Colorado River and California.
As always, thanks for stopping by.
