the house i call home
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).

I don’t know if I ever explained our living quarters, but we live in what was a shoe store – or, according to our neighbors, a candy store. The front part of the building is where I curate monthly window installations and Jeff’s studio, and we live in the back. It’s an open floor plan, so we have become pretty creative with how we use our space. Behind a Chinese screen in our kitchen is our bedroom, which I call the fortress because the bed is against the wall, but cozy with piles of pillows and blankets and shelves of books towering over us. The photos I took in this series were in our dining room. The buffet that I’m sitting on is also Jeff’s dresser. I love the exposed cement walls, layers of paint peeling years of history.
