A SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE #30 â€“ "THE ROMNEY MOTEL"
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).

We enjoy attending the presidential inauguration ceremonies, but we have come to expect better accommodations than what you see here. This will be the last time we ask the Democratic National Committee to make our reservations! LOL
Personal Note: I marched in the 1969 presidential inauguration (Nixon) as a member of the VMI Corps of Cadets. I also attended the 1965 (Johnson), 1989 (Bush 41), and 2001 (Bush 43) presidential inaugurations. Why is it always bitterly cold on Inauguration Day?
Perhaps it was because I was an impressionable high school kid but, looking back, I remember the 1965 inauguration parade as the best of all. The Nationâ€™s mourning over the untimely death of President Kennedy was over, and we had not yet fully committed to Viet Nam (although the 1st Marine Division waded onshore at Da Nang that same month). It was a time to celebrate.
The vast crowd that assembled at the Capitol for the 1965 Inauguration was wild with enthusiasm. So were those marching in the parade. The Native Americans looked magnificent. They were bedecked in buckskins and war bonnets, and they were justifiably proud as they rode their handsome ponies up Pennsylvania Avenue.
As always, thanks for stopping by. Happy New Year!
