"HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SHIRLEY!!!" [SEPTEMBER 16]
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.

[Halfway Rock Lighthouse, Casco Bay, Maine; August, 2012]
Dedicated to my lovely friend, Shirley Valencia, on her very special day.
Shirley co-hosted a wonderful JPG meet-up in St. Louis, last April. Iâ€™ll never forget it. Thanks for the memories, Shirls.
Shirley and I share a common interest in Rock â€˜nâ€™ Rollâ€™s formative years, so I have linked a golden oldie that we both remember filling the airwaves way back when. (Wasnâ€™t â€œAMâ€ radio great?)
So, little â€œbirthday buddy,â€ hereâ€™s wishing you the very best in life . . . now and always!
Halfway Rock Lighthouse (1871) is one of seven lighthouses in Casco Bay. It is halfway between Cape Elizabeth and Cape Small, Maine, and thus its name.
Halfway Rock Lighthouse was built in 1871 to warn ships of the rocky ledge that appears in what is otherwise deep water. At the time of its construction, the rocky ledge had already exacted a fearful toll.
A boathouse was added later. The rocky ledge has become a favorite of seals.
GPS has largely replaced lighthouses as the navigation tool of choice. But, nothing can ever replace the iconic status of Americaâ€™s lighthouses. Or Shirley!
As always, thanks for stopping by this page.
