Bird on a Rusty Stairstep
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.

O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely. Song of Solomon 2: 14
A bird of the air
Who lives in town
Flew all around
Up and down
On rusty stairs
To rest there.
The step is gritty
And not pretty
To human eyes
But to a tired bird
In his own world
It is paradise.
Poetry by me, AJP
I shot a few pictures last month of sparrows who had taken residence on an old rusty stairway on the back of a Convenience Store where there used to be an office above, and caught this bird near the bottom of the step..The old stairway was adjacent to where my husband was getting air in his tires in town and I had time to kill:)
