If these walls could only talk..
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).

St. Charles Mission Church and the mission house were built in the mid 1800's by Oblate Missionaries on a site that was originally located by the explorer Alexander McKenzie, on the banks of the Peace River in Alberta, Canada, in 1793 while on his search for the Western (Pacific) Ocean.
Ft. Dunvegan has a remarkable past, having been fought over by the rival NorthWest and Hudson Bay Trading companies, who were both established fur traders with the Beaver, Slave, Owl and other Indian bands of the area. There was a fort here at one time but it was destroyed by fire. The mission buildings and a trading post residence are all that remain of what was once a very active community. In 1882 an Anglican Mission was also established here. The grave of the Anglican minister's infant daughter has become a must see for visitors.. it brings a special sense of reality, or connection, to this community of the past. Diaries indicate that life was very trying and difficult for these early settlers and for the first nations people as well..
These two buildings have been restored in recent years..
