Update: Tuesday, Oct. 9, 9:40 a.m.
It has come to our attention that the photo of the "Gulfport Waterfront District" sign is copyrighted and permission was not given to anyone to edit it. We have removed the photo from this post.
Attention photographers of all ages, experiences, backgrounds and more! We're seeing new photos every week in our neighborhood photo gallery called "Gulfport Pics & Clips."
We're asking people to upload their favorite videos and photos to our gallery and we're very happy to see more than 280 photos in "Gulfport Pics & Clips" so far!
To say "thanks" for taking the time to share your pics with us, we're picking a photo of the week and highlighting it every Saturday.
This week's photo of the week is, again, from Phil! Now, Phil has been chosen several times for submitting his iPhone photos in the neighborhood gallery. Phil snaps shots at events like the Boca Ciega Yacht Club Fun Day and the 12th Annual Geckofest. Phil even uploads photos taken around town.
But, this week, Phil was chosen for encouraging conversation and making a statement by editing a photo taken of the old "Gulfport Waterfront District" sign.
Gulfport Patch does not agree or disagree with the caption or words that have been edited in the photo. We are featuring the photo because it's an expression, an opinion, a conversation starter and that is what our comment sections and "Local Voices" blogs encourage our readers to do.
We want you to share how you feel about an important issues, education, public safety, local politics, etc. And this week, we thank Phil for doing just that.
Thanks Phil for uploading your latest photo in our "Gulfport Pics & Clips" gallery!
