In Remembrance of Mom (on her birthday)
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).

The lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth and even for evermore..
Psalms 121: 8
My mother who passed away, October 26, 2011 would be 103 years old today if she were still living...I shot this portrait of her holding 2 of her paintings in October of 1997... I used my FE2 Nikon Film camera with flood lights, tripod and a background which I set up in my folk's garage. I remember clearing out their garage to get everything organized so that I would have room to set up the equipment..
This was one of mother's favorite pictures of herself in her older years that she framed on her wall at the home place and on her dresser at the apartment where she moved to before she went to the rest home..
Come from hobbies
That gave pleasures...
We keep them strong
Preserved in pictures..
To replay their song..
The melody lingers
Alive in our heart,
Thru' a mother's fingers
Touched by her art...
Poetry by me, AJP
