Our Own Little Place in the World
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 title refers partly to the couple who thought they we alone in this very public place but mostly to the story I see in the surroundings. The bricks lead you to a fountain standing proudly before the U.S. and Michigan state flag yet flanking the fountain are dozens of flags from foreign countries I've never seen, possibly can't even name, and this couple has most likely never thought about. I see these flags and wonder why they are here in this park, most humans are so caught up in their private struggles that they rarely think of the rest of the world. If these flags are here to inspire a global connectivity does anyone look up or do we only think of "Our Own Little Place in the World?"
