A SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE #12 â€“ â€œGET YOUR KI . . . [OVER]â€
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.

[On U.S. Hwy. 66 â€“ West of Kingman, Arizona]
West of Kingman, Arizona, Route 66 straightens out for a few miles. A driver can wind it out here, as he crosses the high-plains desert with rugged mountains dead ahead.
I blew past this dilapidated sign, slowing down just enough to take a picture through the car window. Although some of the words were missing, I knew the sign was a reference to Bobby Troupâ€™s American standard, â€œGet Your Kicks on Route 66.â€
If you remember the television show, â€œRoute 66â€ (1960-64), just about everything along this iconic highway reminds you of that song . . . and classic Corvettes. (The link, below, features Bobbyâ€™s tune and George Maharis, who co-starred in the television series.)
I was well past this sign when something told me I should pull over. Looking over my shoulder and using the telephoto lens on my little point-and-shoot camera, I saw that the sign had been â€œcontinuedâ€ on the reverse side!
Not only was this a JPG moment, it was, more importantly, another sign of the apocalypse!
Leaning out of the window, I took my shot.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
