“The world is ever changing and in many cases, change is happening faster than we can keep up.”
“This week’s theme, suggested by JPG member Michael Asaro, calls for photos portraying the ever changing world. Submit images of people receiving food or getting pink slips; closed businesses; the erratic unemployment rate; the fall or rise of the housing market. What changes have had the most impact on you and your world?”

“You were told from the beginning that it’s taboo to take photos of other artist’s work and post to JPG as your own. But from time to time, we like to break the rules(even our own) –in the name of creativity of course (wink). This week’s photo challenge was inspired by the photo essay Street Art, by Robert Versteegen.”
“Graffiti art is a crime by law, but there is a certain aesthetic to this illegal form of artwork that makes it worthy of a photo and a share! For this challenge we encourage you to post any photo which features some admirable street art (graffiti) around your town, neighborhood, or city.”
My photo “Tattoos on This Town” features graffiti at the Old Remerton Mill, also known as the 1899 Strickland Cotton Mill, within the city limits of Valdosta, GA. Sadly, this historic mill is currently being threatened with demolition. “You have got a priceless asset in Remerton. If you tear it down, that’s the end of it.” – local architect Blake Ellis.

“There are many types of phobias that exist. Some phobias are more frequently known than others such as being afraid of small tight spaces (claustrophobia) or fear of germs (mysophobia). What about all the other less common phobias that effect people all around the world? We found this amazingly long list of phobias that we thought would make for some awesome phobia photo ops!”
“For this photo challenge upload any photo that shows the unmistakable look of fear or that represents a certain kind of phobia.”
I chose to submit a photo that represents a certain kind of phobia. The phobia my photograph captures is known as Asymmetriphobia. This is the fear of mismatched things, hence the title “Mismatch Paranoia.”
