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).

While ye have light. believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light...St. John 13:36
The picture of the little girl is myself when I was five years old, that I scanned from a small print. The school photographer could not get me to smile:) I was very sober faced and a serious little girl at that age. I can still remember the photographer of that time had dark hair with a noticeable birthmark on his face. I am not sure why that would stick in my memory but it must have made a deep impression....My husband told me that the same photographer came to his school when he was in the earlier grades also.
The storybook doll on the other side was given to me around 1951 or 52 from one of my mother's best friends, Elvira, a minster's wife who died from cancer when she was in her 80's...Elvira claimed the little doll looked like me...The storybook dolls were a fad back then and they are considered collectibles now. This one has the sleep eyes that close. The earlier dolls had hand-painted eyes and were made of bisque. Those like this that were made in the 1950's were manufactured from hard plastic and not as valuable, but to me it is treasured because I so highly respected, Elvira who gave it to me.
This doll is not wearing the original dress that it came with. It is from the Snow White series, if I am not mistaken. The creator, Nancy Ann who started her business in 1936 designed her dolls from Nursery Rhymes and stories.
