My crippled & able boxer shorts seller. Dukan wala - Tamil Nadu, India.
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.

It was mid May and I wasn't prepared for Tamil inland summer.
Packing my backpack for India in December, I kept reminding myself not to cling to the natural instinct of packing winter clothes just because I'm cold.
But with all lightness, I still couldn't imagine the heat wave, along dust gusts sticking to sweaty skin.
The answer came one day, just like that: walking the market street.
This seller whom I may never know his name made an impression as his crippled hands and need to still earn for living didn't get him out of his humble ways and passionate service.
I didn't give him a break, treated him as a normal Indian seller, didn't pity him but bargained my price (not too hard though).
The blue striped boxers you can see next to him is the design I got only in lavender and tan for Rs. 35 (Rupees)
The relaxed pattern allows generous yoga asanas without challenging the crotch.
Today I first wore them as summer days hit California... and I was reminded of this lovely man... sending a you friendly hug.
In the story Dream weavers.
