Hindu & Muslim under one coconut roof
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).

Sankar and myself visited this loving aging couple, from his wife's (Ranji) side.
They live in a simple, traditional (one space) village house.
The wife is Hindu and her partner Muslim.
They have a few cats that like to roam the top of the mud walls, just under the floating coconut ceiling and rice straw roof.
He is the daily cook of their meals
She gifted me a coin she had that some relative brought back from the Arab Gulf countries.
We only stayed for about an hour, but the tranquility, the energy of these people and their simple but colorful, lit and ventilated home with nature within and all around...
Now that I got to write about coconuts in India, I stumbled upon this photo and couldn't browse away. That energy filled me again, expanded and touched whatever it is that triggers tears of relief, of joy.
In the story Rolling on coconuts.
