Scanned Self portrait, September 5th,1996
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).

Cause me to hear thy loving kindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: Cause me to know
the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee...Psalms 143: 8
I had just turned 53 years old, the day I did this self portrait to remember my birthday that year..I was kneeling by the morning glories that were in full bloom.
(Our morning glories haven't begun to bloom yet this year.) I thought at that time I was beginning to be an old geezer and had better do this self portrait before I got any older... The years fly by too rapidly. It is hard to believe, but I will be 69 in less than two weeks.
You can see my hand partly hidden behind my foot squeezing the remote control bulb that was attached by a cord to my FE2 Nikon Film camera on a tripod. The white western blouse I was wearing with the fringes on the sleeves and neckline, I had just bought at the State Fair that year and I loved it so much that I wore it out completely.. The fringes finally fell apart and got all knotted up.... but that's what you call a favorite outfit:)
Thank you so much JanElle for the generous spotlight...Very appreciated!
Update in 2015: Of course I am even older now than what I said when this was posted ...Yes, time does fly but we have no control of time except to use it in the best way possible.
