Congratulations to Robert Moore of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. Robert has won our contest twice before. His last win was in November of last year. He follows last week’s winner, Michael Hogan of North Richland Hills.
If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, all you need to do is upload your photo to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took earlier than the current week, but we are hoping that the contest will inspire you to go out and shoot something fantastic this week to share with Art&Seek users. If the picture you take involves a facet of the arts, even better. The contest week will run from Tuesday to Monday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Friday afternoon. We’ll notify the winner through FlickrMail (so be sure to check those inboxes) and ask you to fill out a short survey to tell us a little more about yourself and the photo you took. We’ll post the winners’ photo on Tuesday.
Now here’s more from Robert.
Title of photo: “Football Summer Camp”
Equipment: Leica M 240, Summicron-M 1:2/35 ASPH
Tell us more about your photo: I shot this as part of an assignment for a workshop hosted by Dallas Center for Photography and taught by New York street photographer Robert Herman. The workshop group went to shoot the 80th Anniversary Celebration for Fair Park. While walking the fair grounds I heard a band playing in the Cotton Bowl so I went to check it out. On the field were hundreds of young athletes taking part in Michael Crabtree’s annual Football Camp. Crabtree played at Dallas’ David W. Carter High School, starred at Texas Tech and was drafted into the NFL in 2009. He currently plays for the Oakland Raiders. Here the athletes wait their turn to take the field, participant in the drills and hopefully get noticed. The variety of expressions is wonderful. Some are clearly anxious, some determined, some just bored. The goal for this shot was to capture as many faces as possible. Who knows, I may have a future Pro Football Hall of Famer in my portfolio.
