Old Navy practices in a newly found land
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 first person I met after I left my clogs at the door and stepped into the hall was Reddy.
His Old Navy sweatshirt flashed back the Tamil ancient technology wood ships that are still built and cruise the open Indian ocean between India and Arab peninsula.
Reddy was living all over the global as he represented Japanese electronic brandsin emerging markets.
He also had business in Israel and told me this little story:
"Years back I cam to Israel for business. I didn't know it is the Passover holiday (he said it in Hebrew with an Indian accent, E.D), so I ended up spending the week traveling all over Israel instead. When it was time for me to leave on an Olympic flight to Greece, they gave me such a thorough search that they had to dellay the flight for 15 minutes. When I got to my business class seat eventually, it all came clear. My neighbour was the Greek high priest carrying the holly flame of Easter from Israel to Greek, because only the Greek and Russian church celebrate Easter one week later then all other."
I laughed and immediately recalled my Gujarati similar experience I described in this story: http://jpgmag.com/stories/15223 - "Wait till I tell you my story" I said, but we haven't got the chance since
But his first question as I entered with a Starbucks paper bag was:
"Is it possible it contain eggs?" he asked softly as I offered my Prasad (food gift for gods/guests).
"Maybe" I said about the Persian long bread and cranberries bagels.
"Food that may harm animals shouldn't be served" explained me Ramchandra later who came with his wife and daughter, "These days we can know that an egg is infertile so many do eat those at home"
In the story Hindu Gods happily married at an ex-church.
