India - Traditional Post Office camp fire
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).

Indian post office regulations, or just the mandatory tradition, requires every parcel shipped (abroad?) to be fully wrapped and stitches in fabric. Then every spot where stitches begin/end/cross has to be sealed with molten wax ! Of course on my first visit to the India post office I couldn't guess that. So after standing in “line” I had to go back to the stall outside the post office yard and buy some red wax sticks for Rs. 5 each ( about 10 US cents). Now how do I get these molten ? Luckily, the same person who pointed that stall to me volunteered to help. Right on the post office premises, as you can see at the photo I just had to snap, among the trees, where dry foliage covers the earth he started a little fire. He melted the tip of a wax stick and smeared it using a coin or a key onto the parcel wrap stitches.
