Losing Lottery Numbers
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.

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away...
I spent $2.00 just for fun...
On a lottery ticket
And the same amount I won..
The win... I did forfeit
To buy two more,
Now you know my total score(:
Poetry by me AJP
I am not in the habit of buying Lottery tickets, thank goodness:) but when buying groceries on Saturday I decided to try my luck in memory of my late father who recently had a birthday on August 5th.. If he were alive he would be 103 years old. Coincidentally, when you add up my total score on this card it totals number 8...the same number for the month August and I see the number 5, the number of my father's birthday...I might keep this card for good luck:)
Dad found enjoyment in buying lottery tickets before his stroke and more often than not, he was lucky... (Of course he never told you his losses:) But I am sure he came out ahead...
He loved anything and everything about baseball and I know he would have bought a baseball lottery ticket such as I bought ..However, after his stroke in 2002 all of his past hobbies such as wood carving and interests departed from his memory, including baseball, and lottery tickets. His whole personality changed and I miss him, the way he was before his stroke..The good memories of him I will always keep and cast away what could not be helped.
It was more difficult to shoot this picture than I realized...This is the exposure what I used and I shot this outside with the little ticket propped against the door where it was shady..
