Congratulations to David C. LaFevor of Fort Worth, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. This is the first time David has won our contest. He follows last week’s winner, Robert Moore of Dallas.
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 David.
Title of photo: “Centenarian in Baracoa, Cuba”
Equipment: Nikon D800 with Nikkor 24-70mm
Tell us more about your photo: I took this near the beach in the oldest city in Cuba, Baracoa. I started a conversation with the man and his family in their home and learned that he had trained fighting cocks (still legal in Cuba) since the late 1920s and had just celebrated his 100th birthday. I am a historian of Cuba and street/portrait photography helps me understand the impact of the past on the present.
